... A warm August across northern and eastern Maine...

So far this August (aug 1-17), the average temperature at Caribou
of 70.9 degrees is 6 degrees above the 30-year average. It ties
with 1970 as the 2nd warmest on record. Weather records at Caribou
began in 1939.

Interestingly, so far this month the average temperature at
Caribou has tied with July 2018, which was the all-time warmest
month on record. The average temperature this month of 70.9
degrees is running 2.7 degrees above the all-time record warm
August of 2015; but including today there are still 14 days left
in the month, so the monthly average temperature this year will
likely decline with time.

At Houlton, the average temperature so far this month of 69.0
degrees is 4 degrees above average. It ranks as the 9th warmest
start to the month. Weather records date back to 1948.
