Maine can get wicked cold in the winter, but there are some days in the summer so hot you'll wish you were back to bundling up for the next snowstorm.

And as those temperatures rise in the 90s and possibly 100s, you're probably thinking, this has got to be one of the hottest days ever, right?

Well, it's been over 100 years since the highest temperature ever recorded in the Pine Tree State, but these days it can feel pretty close.

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. Now that is hot.

The SEC states that that record hit twice in the same location: North Bridgton.

New Hampshire beat that record by just one degree, but it also happened to be on July 4, 1911. Nashua hit 106 degrees.

Let's hope we don't get that hot for the next Fourth of July!

Interestingly, Bangor Daily News reported that Caribou hit a record heat index of 103 degrees on Wednesday, June 19, 2024, during the heatwave in the state. Mother Nature needs to calm down and relax.

Thankfully, those are all still cooler than the world record highest air temperature of 134 degrees in Death Valley in California, according to the National Park Service.

Still, let's keep those temps on the lower side in Maine, right?

If it is hot out there, make sure to stay hydrated, don't over-exert yourself, stay out of the sun, and if you can, stay in a cool place.

If anything, the hot summer will soon pass, and we'll be right back to complaining about the bitter cold when it returns. Good times.

Is anyone ready to go to the beach to cool off?
