    Daylight saving time begins Sunday. Why are we still doing this?

    It’s that time of the year again when we move the clocks forward by an hour and therefore can take advantage of more daylight during the second half of the day. Although we call this new time daylight saving time, we haven’t added anymore daylight to our lives; we’ve only shifted when it occurs. A […]

    Subzero cold followed by near record warmth? What’s going on with our winter weather?

    Yesterday Portland reached 50 degrees, just one degree shy of the record high for the date. Interestingly enough, this occurred on same day when day back in 1943 Portland set its all-time lowest reading ever at 39 degrees below zero.

    Large ocean storm stays far enough east to only brush Maine

Snow is in the forecast in some form the first part of this week, but you’ll be disappointed if you were expecting a lot of it.  The storm bringing this weather is located over 600 miles from […]

    Heavier snow pushes further inland, bringing snowstorm to larger area of Maine

    Afternoon Update Nowcasting is what we call following a storm situation and giving updates.  During this particular storm it’s been necessary to update the forecast and raise the snow totals everywhere.  As the heavier precipitation earlier thought to stay south and east of the Maine coastline has now moved inland.  This means some areas could […]
