weather & Seasons

Maine’s Lakes and Mountains acknowledges its four seasons gladly, so be prepared. Winter here brings snow-capped mountains, thickly frozen lakes, and frigid temperatures; summertime offers temperate, humid days and cool, comfortable evenings. Fall and spring fill the gaps with more moderate days and crisp evenings.


March through May can be temperamental, so bring layers. Rain is common, but so is bright sunshine, so pack your sunglasses and umbrella.


June through August can get downright hot! Shorts and T-shirts will keep you comfortable during the day, but bring a sweater for cool evenings.


During September through November the mornings start off chilly, with comfortably warm afternoons. Some days can be rainy, so dress in layers and carry an umbrella.


December through Febraury temperatures can regularly range from below zero into the teens. On snowy or windy days require extra layers to stay warm and dry.
