It’s going to be wicked cold tonight, Monday, October 25, 2021 and we better start getting used to it. This season has been unusual in terms of temps and weather. In fact we have a new record in northern Maine, according to the U.S. National Weather Service.

Weather Record

The new stat - this is the farthest we’ve ever been into the late Fall without temps at or below 32 degrees in Caribou, Maine. Let that sink in for a second. (They started keeping the statistics in 1939).

Back to it being cold Monday night (and most of the week too). A couple of things to do. Make sure the tank has enough fuel to get you through until you can get a delivery. Also, shut the windows that have stayed open since the late summer. Now is the time to take down the air conditioner and buckle things down.

Snow This Week?

Now, what about the snow we could see this week. Is it going to happen in Aroostook County. Maine?

When you look at the forecast below, there’s some rain later in the week (right before and going into the weekend), but no snow (as of yet). Of course in Maine that could change.

We’ll hold steady with cold temperatures and rain for now, and snow for sure later in the season. Not just a little snow, but a lot - just like every winter in northern Maine.
