    Default Typical New England Weather

    Monday when I left for work at 5:30am, it was 10 degrees with a 25 mph wind. Wednesday when I left for work at 5:30am it was 58 degrees and raining. Right now it is 31 degrees and raining. There is glaze ice forming on my car, but not on the road. I expect that to change when the (sun?) goes down at 4:12pm. Fun.

    Yes, it is the sun that's going down this afternoon and you spelled it correctly.

    The sun goes down here in Florida also. Kinda cool how that works.

    This evening I got to enjoy a fairly rare occurrence for us down here. Something that you New Englanders enjoy on a regular basis. It is wind. Not like the wind we get from thunderstorms which is a regular occurrence but wind from a tight pressure gradient. the southern low passed just northwest of us giving us sustained winds between 20 -30 mph and gusts from 30 -40 mph. It also brought in 10 degree cooler temps with blowing rain and drizzle. I couldn't help but think of all those raw, wet, windy evenings I experienced when I lived in CT. We even lost power for 20 min. when a limb fell across the power lines.

    Well, it looks like at 5:59AM we lost power in Maine. I am sure there is a lot of ice on tree limbs right now.

    Default Quite the storm

    We're now approaching 4 inches of rain in RI from this storm now. In Providence the temperature rose 15 degrees in 10 minutes this morning (to 58 degrees). Rain is horizontal right now. By this afternoon it's going to drop below freezing so that all the flooded roads can turn to skating rinks. Yup, gotta love New England weather...

    What an immense forecast bust. Warm air made a surge that nobody was expecting. Its 23F in the Champlain Valley in VT but over freezing at the Obs.

    We had that same temperature surge overnight as well. 8 degrees in 15 minutes:

    It turned to ice and sleet and still is coming down now. It sounds like it is quite a mess in Maine. At 7Am we had a large explosion in the basement - 20 circuit breakers tripped - generator tried to come on and would not - some circuits were working - bad smell in the basement - telephone is out - cable is out - electrician is there sorting things out. The house is now running on generator and I am sure systems will come back online - but it might be a while.

    The MWO web camera archive process runs from that house and is not working at this point. If the house is still offline later today i will switch and recreate the process on my laptop here in NC to get the images flowing again.

    Stacey...I wasn't referring to your forecast. Nobody got it right.

    Default Wow..

    Kevin may have started this thread, but I wouldn't expect to hear from him for a few days. No power to most of his and my area, about 3/4 of an inch of ice in the trees, and lots of limbs and lines down. I am up in the mountains, where in gorham everything is fine, but it was a mess in the seacoast.
