What are people saying about the weather?

THE WEATHER REPORT:

“The Weather Report” is a conversation that goes beyond the forecast and gets into how the weather affects our day to day lives in Aroostook county, Maine.

Hot and humid. That says it all for Tuesday. No complaints, just pointing out the facts. 

If you don’t have an air conditioner, you should really look into getting one. The initial investment is around $135 to $150 depending on what kind you get. It’s then just a matter of affording the electricity bill that jumps up when you run a cooling unit.

The alternative is spending the summer with uncomfortable days in the heat. It can also be unhealthy too.

It’s understood not everyone can afford the price to get an air conditioner and also afford the expense of the electric bills. It’s something to consider if you can cut expenses elsewhere and invest in a better living condition for you and your family.

Now comes the rain and the cool down Wednesday. The rain started in the middle of the night and really brought the temperatures down. It continues through most of the day Wednesday and into Thursday to give us some relief - although there will be thunderstorms to look out for.

We want the sun to shine all summer in Aroostook County. Nobody is really wanting rain - of course we want a proportionate amount to keep our fields maintained - but summer is about getting out and enjoying the nice weather.

Look for temps to really drop Friday and Saturday into the mid to upper 60’s. This leads us right into the 4th of July on Sunday. Get ready for a nice mild day in the mid 70’s - perfect for the barbecue and parties we plan all over northern Maine. The fireworks should be good to go too. Everyone looks forward to the celebration. The big event in Presque Isle is the July 3 Jubilee at the Presque Isle Airport. Check our website for more info on the community activities.

Stay cool and Happy 4th of July.
