Winter Rolls On

Thursday, March 23, 2017

Let me first start by saying last weekend at the Loaf was epic.

Winter's Revenge Continues

Thursday, March 16, 2017

It was only a few shorts weeks ago it looked like we might be entering an early spring. I cautioned it was unlikely to continue and the long range signals were encouraging to snow lovers.

The Tide Has Turned

Thursday, March 9, 2017

UPDATE (March 13): Although skeptical at first, I tested this storm on all sides...track, mid level temperatures, dynamics and at this point it has passed with flying colors. The Result: Gonna be a biggie.

Time to fire up the snow guns

Thursday, March 2, 2017

The good news and the bad news are kind of the same thing this weekend: Good news- It's gonna be really cold...perfect for snowmaking. Bad news- It's gonna be really cold.

Seriously, just get up here

Advising you as to the conditions at Sugarloaf right now feels a bit like being Tom Brady's agent: I don't mind spelling it out for you, but the greatness is pretty apparent.

Winter is about to go nuts

Thursday, February 9, 2017

Just a quick update today because things just got REAL in the weather office. Long story short, we have 3 events to talk about in the next week, with the definite possibility of 4. Keep in mind this is all in 7 days.

Quick Update: Some Snow for The Loaf

Tuesday, February 7, 2017

I mentioned during my last post that the computer models have been too aggressive trying to change snow to rain on these "inside runner" storms, and that our next system would likely trend colder over time. 

Well, that's how it went down.

A Little Snow and Plenty Cold

Thursday, February 2, 2017

First of all thanks to Noelle for pinch hitting for me on the blog last week. I was busy in Hawaii more or less becoming a professional surfer. Now that I'm back to weather nerd/skier mode, I see a decent pattern for the next 5-7 days.

The Rookie's Unofficial Forecast

Monday, January 23, 2017

While Keith enjoys some well-deserved rest and relaxation this week, Noelle Tuttle takes a crack at forecasting the incoming storm. 

A Silver (White) Lining

Tuesday, January 17, 2017

I told you last week that we would be in an unusually above average temperature pattern for the next 5 to 7 days.

Snowmaking weather this weekend, but overall winter is on hold

Thursday, January 12, 2017

My elementary school teacher used to preach the whole "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all" thing. In that spirit, I'll keep today's blog brief.

Waste not, want not: Two snowstorms just miss Maine

Thursday, January 5, 2017

Last time I talked to you we were bracing for what I promised would be a crushing snow dump. Well, it was crush-tas-tic if I do say so myself.

A Homerun For The Loaf

Wednesday, December 28, 2016

I can't remember a time when a computer model locked into a storm like the EURO did on this one. It had this storm pegged since Dec 22nd and did not waiver one little bit.

Snow Fresh-Up on Saturday, Pattern Amplifies

Thursday, December 22, 2016

Overall, the first half of December was fully loaded winter style...especially when compared to last year. 

Brutal cold, but Saturday POW Potential

Wednesday, December 7, 2016

Mainers take pride in how little cold bothers them. 10 F? Psh, they put their newborns out in it so they can learn to walk. 5 F? Fine, they'll put on a Patriots sweatshirt.

Monday Snow Update

Wednesday, December 7, 2016

Everything is on track from the previous forecast with this being a light to moderate event. 

Forecast: Winter Goes "Full Barney"

Wednesday, December 7, 2016

From a raw cold standpoint the next two weeks will feel more like winter than the entire 2015-16 season. 

Better than expected

Thursday, December 1, 2016

All things considered, The Loaf did pretty well with these last two storms.

Snowy Start

Thursday, November 24, 2016

I told you in last week's blog that I liked the troughy signals coming out of the mid range pattern.  

We're About to Get Trough-y

Thursday, November 17, 2016

This time of the year, we aren't looking to nail down specific Nor'easter snowfall totals, instead we are looking for broad brush signs of winter.
