Maine Weather

If any state reflects the four-season climate changes, Maine certainly does.
Summers here are generally moderate, while winters are cold and snowy. In the higher elevations of Baxter State Park, snow fall is very heavy.

Fall is Maine's most beautiful season, with striking fall colors (and some say) perfect weather.

Overall, January is the coldest month, with average high temperatures near 20 degrees. Much colder conditions are common in the mountains and along the northern border with Canada.

July is the warmest month, with average high temperatures near 70 degrees.

Annual precipitation averages near 45 inches, with higher amounts along the Atlantic Ocean coastline, and the upper reaches of the mountains. For a look at Maine precipitation levels, view this precipitation map!
