We are coming off of one of the wettest and coolest July's on record. And we are on to August, where according to the National Weather Service in Gray, the cooler than normal temperatures will continue:

"If you have been enjoying the cooler temperatures lately, we have good news to share as the latest outlooks by the  
NOAA NWS Climate Prediction Center favors below-average temperatures for the next 2 weeks. There is a near-neutral chance for either above or below-average precipitation."

So what are the average temperatures for August in Maine? Here are the average highs and lows for some towns:

78    58          Brunswick

78    57          Ellsworth

75    56          Kennebunkport

71    57          Port Clyde

78    58          Portland

Are you ok with cooler temperatures? Keep in mind that sometime in August, you will see this.

My sense is we will be ok with the cooler than average temperatures if they aren't TOO cool and if it's not too rainy.
