Uncover The Pool & Bust Out The Flip Flops, Maine is About to Get a Winter Heat Wave
Is this a sign that global warming will have Maine sprouting palm trees in February? Sadly, no. This is just a typical mid-winter thaw that happens each year across New England.
Don't get me wrong, I'm glad that it's been wicked-friggin-chilly over the last couple of weeks here in the Pine Tree State. My driveway no longer is covered in mud and there seems to be much more ice available for the hard-water fishers in the area.
However, for people like me who much prefer a summery climate to the harsh Maine winter blues, we will get a slight reprieve from the chill this coming week. According to an article in the Kennebec Journal, the warmer temperatures are expected to move in by Thursday.
Now, I have absolutely no idea what a 'ridge of high pressure' means, but the KJ says that one of those things will be moving into New England this week and will be bringing much warmer temps, but just how warm are we talking?
Well, if you remember the title of this piece, uncovering the pool etc, I wouldn't do that just yet. I only said those things so you would at least click in and read a little of this because I spent quite a bit of time putting it together for you. But I digress.
Because of this high pressure ridge, whatever that means, New England, including Maine, will warm into the 40s and 50s for several days this week. Beginning on Thursday and carrying on through much of the upcoming weekend, it will be nice to go outside and not have a slight breeze injure your face skin.
But rest assured, much colder air will return just in time for next week. Winter is far from over, so don't let this little peek at spring fool you. That groundhog had it all wrong- this is Maine after all.
