A snowy, icy nor’easter bears down on Maine

For the third time in the past few weeks, Maine is in the cross hairs of a mixed precipitation event.

My previous update set the table of the storm along […]

A calm and mild Sunday before a stormy kick-off to the week

A quiet weather weekend for Maine, messy storm to start the week

Snow ends over parts of Maine by mid-day; warnings cancelled

Conditions will slowly improve during the day, but light snow appears to remain steady […]

Snow possible for parts of Maine midweek

After the frontal passage Thursday night, temperatures crash […]

Another round of snow, rain and ice for Maine Tuesday into Wednesday

  The region gets out of the deep freeze for a couple of days, but it will take a storm to do it. Warmer air slowly builds into the state thanks to a southerly wind flow, but not before snow falls over the interior. Northern and western areas are likely to have a slick ride […]
