I am seeing weather forecasts of possible 60's in the Boston area beginning of next week! :cussing:

Accuweather / Wunderground / Weather.com are all over the place with the Maine forecasts... anyone have any ideas on how bad this thaw will be?

From what I've seen/heard, it's only supposed to get into the low 40's, so hopefully it'll only serve to help tighten up the snow pack and keep solidifying the base.

Solid 3' on the ground here with 4'+ drifts - so we could easily take a pack down of 1' and still be great. We just really need the cold up here (Millinocket) to set some of the water - the streams, mud holes, lakes. Even for ice fishing - just a lot of early snow before most everything had a chance to freeze up solid......

Trails are always kinda rough in central maine, but we currently have a ton of mud holes and wash outs. The last few days should give us good riding tonight and hopefully tomorrow morning, but next week is going to be terrible. Remember it hit 57 last january 6th in Winthrop.

I think Wednesday is going to be the worst part with rain everywhere including the mountains.

Good News. Warm up occurs during the week. Bad news is the washouts and water holes will be back until we get another deep freeze.

I just got back from a week in Jackman and it could not have been better. 2 feet of snow fell while we were there. Groomers and cold weather setup the trails for near perfect conditions. Temps ranged from 20 above to almost 20 below. Lots of snow.

I rode sround So. Maine yesterday and the water holes where all closed up, this warm up will open everything back up around here and make it tough going. Lets hope that the mix coming next weekend ends up being snow!

Very warm here now with alot of melting. Trails in West Paris were horrid, and will be worse now. Greenwood to Bethal was descent this past weekend. Not looking good for this weekend though.

Rode out of Spruce Meadow Cabins Dec. 29th thru Jan. 5th.

Near perfect conditions with almost 1,000 miles ridden to start this season off right.

I thought wow over the years I have been pretty hard on Mother Nature and maybe I should put in a good word for her but once again she pumps us up only to make the fall that much harder to take.

There is going to be a cross between Snowmobile and ATV mud to deal with now. Hopefully the traffic is lite every where this week and weekend and the groomer gods can get things back in order once the cold come s back.
