Maine Will See Big Heat Wednesday But It Won’t Be Back For Awhile
Coming off a sticky and sweaty weekend in Maine that felt like a summer preview, Mother Nature has one more day of big heat planned for May before we can seasonably spring again. Wednesday should reach "scorch" levels, with portions of western and southern Maine having the potential to hit 90, most of the rest of Maine should at least see 80 degree weather. After that? Make sure you haven't put the sweatshirts and long pants into storage yet.
Shared on Twitter by Robert LaRoche, it's been easy to forget that summer is still several weeks away with a stretch of above-average temperatures lately. After Wednesday's heat punch and Thursday's follow-up, Memorial Day weekend and perhaps several days after that will feel a lot more like early-spring than early-summer. The holiday weekend should steer clear of any rain but temperatures will struggle to reach the mid-60's inland and low 60's along the coast.
The beach and the backyard slip n' slides may have to wait a couple more weeks. If you've already put the air conditioner in, you may want to consider in a fan in the other bedroom window. You know how it is in Maine, summer one minute, and then it's spring all over again.
