The Hottest Temperature Ever Recorded in Maine Will Make You Wish for Winter
Things are heating up in Maine with summer right around the corner.
In fact, the National Weather Service in Gray is already reporting temps in the state above 80 on Friday. It's gonna be a hot day, so definitely try and stay cool. Maybe a trip to the beach?
But did you know that even with these temperatures rising and the weather feeling warm, there's an even higher temperature that's taken the record for hottest temperature ever recorded?
According to the State Climate Extremes Committee of NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information, Maine hit a record 105 degrees on July 4 and 10, 1911.
The SEC states that that record hit twice in the same location: North Bridgton.
Funny enough, New Hampshire beat that record by a degree, but it also happened to be on July 4, 1911. Nashua hit 106 degrees.
Now that's a hot Fourth of July!
Let's just hope it doesn't get that hot anytime soon. Otherwise, we'll be asking for a snowfall.
