  • 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.

  • 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...
  • THE WEEKEND IS SO MONEY BABY AND DOESN'T EVEN KNOW IT

    (If that headline doesn't make sense to you, go watch the movie "Swingers" immediately. I was thinking about linking that scene into the blog but, even by my standards, it might be crossing the line of appropriateness. Which, by the way, is like McDonalds saying "You know what, we can't make this burger, it's just TOO fatty and processed.")  
    ANYHOW, point is the entire Northeast is looking at a fantastic weekend, so just keep that in mind in places...
  • BUH-BYE BACKDOOR COLD FRONT

    Backdoor cold front. Dirty Ridge. Haboob. All legit weather terms. All make people giggle like a 5th grader. Just one of the many reasons I love my job.
     
    In any event, the  whole "backdoor cold front" thing wasn't quite as hilarious for my peeps in the Northeast this week. It swept southwestward through Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and all the way down to D.C. crushing...summer dreams along the way. It's interesting to note that this particular front was quite...
  • CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF CARSON

    2014-05-29T16:00:00.000Z

    Welcome and thanks for stopping by (but mainly, stay classy ). Depending on which phase of my career you caught me during I'm either:
     
    2) That 13 year old with glasses and occasionally a mustache from WCSH in Maine 3) That GQ looking dreamboat from The Weather Channel Ok, I took a few liberties with that last one. Whatever, don't nickel and dime me. I've decided to use this blog...
