FEATURED POSTS
The joke goes that I have the easiest job in the world because I "can be wrong all the time and not get fired." 
 
(Don't even get me started on that by the way. If you are a real estate developer and NOT Donald Trump then I'd argue you've likely made some mistakes along the way...they just don't happen on live TV. Actually, even he's made a lot of mistakes...just look at Atlantic City right now. The only people...
  • THIS WEEK FEATURES A PROGRESSIVE PATTERN...KIND OF.

    2014-08-17T19:44:59.940Z

    Looking over the various computer models, I find this weeks pattern in the Northeast unusually hard to sum up with just one phrase. It's progressive . Kinda. Except there's a block in there too. It's dry ..except showers creep in by late week. Well it's warm . Meh, actually it's just about average by the numbers.
     
    Maybe, just maybe,  this week can't be summed up that easily. Take me for example... you could go with: Tight suits, smart ass,...
  • SUMMER 2014: ROUGH WORKWEEKS, AMAZING WEEKENDS

    2014-08-10T19:47:41.001Z

    Life is all about timing. Sure, it's cliche. But it's also true.
     
    Example: My deal with WCSH in Maine was about to expire and at that exact moment The Weather Channel was like, "You know what we don't have enough of? Thin guys in SUPER tight dress pants who like to make pop culture jokes at 5 am"  BAM. Deal done.
     
     
    Another example: The weekends in the Northeast this summer, in general, have been very pleasant. Even...
  • UNSETTLED WORK WEEK, BUT A DIME OF A WEEKEND

    The weather this week will be much like my television presentation; sometimes it's pretty awful but it'll come through when it really matters.
     
    Translation: The work week will feature a good amount of shower activity, but the weekend looks clutch. 
     
    (By the way if you don't know what "a dime of a weekend" means, step into the hallway, listen to some hip hop songs and then rejoin the class quietly. It's a good thing, trust me)
     
    Ok,...
  • SEVERE STORMS ON THE MOVE, AND IS SUMMER OVER ALREADY?

    2014-07-27T20:16:07.473Z

     
    First I'll address the ongoing severe weather threat and then we will move on to the workweek ahead.
     
    There are several Tornado Watches currently issued for the Ohio Valley and into parts of the Midwest as powerful thunderstorms rumble east along a potent upper level disturbance. Severe weather is a lock for these locations and, in many spots, already a reality this afternoon. However the severe thunderstorm threat for our region is a little more complicated.
     
    Please...
  • WARM AND MUGGY, JUST THE WAY YOU ALL LIKE IT....RIGHT?

    By most measures I'm a classic, borderline stereotypical, New Englander.
     
    Dunkin Donuts is just "Dunks" and, yes, I'll take that coffee "regular" even though that has no clear definition other than that it involves somewhere between 3 and 25 packets of sugar.
     
    I will argue, completely straight faced, with another man that the only reason people hate the New England Patriots its because "Tom Brady is just too perfect as a human being, physically and otherwise."

  • STRONG THUNDERSTORMS AND THEN THE POLAR VORTEX THAT ISN'T REALLY THE POLAR VORTEX

    First of all let me say that I'm annoyed with myself pertaining to Arthur. Although I was correct for the vast majority of the forecast area by saying the hurricane would have little impact; I was only half right when it came to my peeps in Maine. They, as it turned out, DID endure some heavy rain and decent winds. "King Euro"  was mostly right, but mostly right ain't gonna cut it 'round my blog.
     
    Ok moving...
  • TROPICAL TROUBLE?

    2014-07-01T12:21:25.434Z

    Tropical Storm Arthur
    By the time you read this you will have already heard the buzz about a tropical system barelling up the east coast as we head into the 4th of July. Unlike much of what you hear on the internet, this is indeed true.     I'll dive headlong into that in a second, but let's get through the next 36 hour forecast first.
     
    It's gonna be hot. Ok that should cover it. Seriously though a strong southwest flow is...
  • UNSETTLED 48 HOURS BUT ANOTHER NICE WEEKEND

    Before I get to the forecast, a little disclaimer: I am writing this under the influence of strong pain medication (the tie in will make sense at the end of the clip) following a surgical tooth extraction. Two notes on that: 1) "Surgery" is a generous term for what takes place during an extraction. It's more like a guy in a white coat using needle nose pliers to turn off a water valve somewhere deep inside your mouth 2) I...
  • THIS WEEKEND: IT'S REAL NICE, I BOUGHT IT AT TARGET

    Well I'm back from my jet setting adventures to Spain and ready to dish out some forecast goodness. (Really what I do is the opposite of jet setting. I'm cramped-middle-row- inconsolable -screaching-baby-next-to-you-coach all the way. But, whatever, details.)
     
    Luckily for me I get to deliver an easy and pleasant forecast upon my return. The rest of this week and the upcoming weekend are looking solid. Real solid.
     
    Right now a warm front is hanging around the Mid-Atlantic, bringing...
