...JUNE 2018 MONTHLY CLIMATE NARRATIVE FOR NORTHERN AND EASTERN
MAINE...

JUNE 2018 FINISHED WITH BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES. PRECIPITATION WAS
MORE VARIABLE AND RANGED FROM 50 TO 90 PERCENT OF NORMAL ACROSS MOST
AREAS FROM THE KATAHDIN REGION NORTH TO THE SAINT JOHN VALLEY, AND
FROM 90 TO 150 PERCENT OF NORMAL ACROSS THE DOWNEAST REGION.

TEMPERATURES ACROSS THE REGION AVERAGED FROM 1 TO 3 DEGREES BELOW
AVERAGE. THERE WERE LARGE DIURNAL TEMPERATURE RANGES FROM DAY TO
NIGHT ON MANY DAYS WITH A LOT OF COOL NIGHTS. THERE WERE 5 NIGHTS
WITH LOWS IN THE 30S AT CARIBOU, WHICH WAS THE MOST SINCE 2002.
THERE WERE 9 SUCH NIGHTS AT HOULTON, WHICH WAS THE MOST SINCE 2000.
SOME OF THE NORMALLY COLDER VALLEYS IN NORTHWEST MAINE HAD LIGHT
FROSTS WELL INTO THE 2ND HALF OF THE MONTH, AND ESTCOURT STATION HAS
A LOW OF 29 DEGREES ON THE MORNING OF THE 22ND.

THE FIRST HALF OF THE MONTH WAS VERY DRY WITH VERY LITTLE RAINFALL.
RAINFALL BECOME MORE FREQUENT DURING THE 2ND HALF OF THE MONTH WITH
THE HEAVIEST EVENT ON THE 28TH INTO THE 29TH WHEN SEVERAL LOCATIONS
IN HANCOCK AND WASHINGTON COUNTIES OBSERVED OVER 2 INCHES OF RAIN.
THE TOTAL RAINFALL FOR THE MONTH AT BANGOR WAS 5.42 INCHES, WHICH
WAS 1.66 INCHES ABOVE AVERAGE. PRECIPITATION WAS BELOW AVERAGE AT
CARIBOU, HOULTON, AND MILLINOCKET.

THE OUTLOOK FOR JULY 2018 FROM THE CLIMATE PREDICTION CENTER IS
CALLING FOR AN INCREASED LIKELIHOOD OF ABOVE AVERAGE TEMPERATURES
AND AN INCREASED CHANCE OF BELOW AVERAGE PRECIPITATION. NORMAL HIGH
TEMPERATURES REACH THEIR WARMEST LEVELS DURING MID-LATE MONTH WITH
AN AVERAGE HIGH OF 76 AT CARIBOU AND 80 DEGREES AT BANGOR.
AVERAGE LOWS RANGE FROM THE MID 50S AT CARIBOU TO 60 DEGREES AT
BANGOR. AVERAGE RAINFALL ACROSS THE REGION AS A WHOLE IS AROUND 3.50
TO 4 INCHES, BUT TENDS TO BE HIGHLY VARIABLE DUE TO THE NATURE OF
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS. 53 MINUTES OF DAYLIGHT IS LOST DURING THE
MONTH AT CARIBOU.
