Get The Jackets Ready; Labor Day Weekend In Maine Could Be Chilly
At this point in the year in Maine, you wouldn't think the term "chilly" would raise any eyebrows. But this summer has been anything but conventional. Humidity has been king and pure heat hasn't been far behind. In fact, as we head into a Labor Day weekend, Mother Nature is setting her blowtorch on high for all of New England for most of the week. But then, there's that precious holiday weekend.
Forecast models predicted the heat wave correctly and now they're lining us up to go from bathing suits and air conditioners to jackets, pants, and pumpkin spice. Friday should be standard fare for summer in Maine, with highs in the low 70's. But after that? One word: BRRRRRR
Saturday, Sunday and Monday all look on the cooler side of anything we've seen this summer. Saturday and Sunday specifically could pack high temps in the mid-60's. Late night lows? We're talking upper 40's and low 50's for a large portion of the state. The silver lining to all of this is there doesn't seem to be any precipitation in the forecast.
It could all change from now until this weekend, but if it doesn't, pack a few extra blankets and bring those stored away sweatshirts on your camping getaway this weekend. You're gonna need 'em.
