The climate of Maine (United
States of America)
The state of Maine is the most northeasterly located state in the
United States of America. It is the 39th most extensive and the 41st
most populous state in the United States of America. Maine has a
moderate continental climate. Several regions along the coast have a
moderate maritime climate. Summers are warm and wet, winters are cool
with snowfall. Even the influence of the warmer sea water cannot
prevent it from getting really cold here. This is caused by the supply
of cold air from the polar regions. Precipitation is quite evenly
spread out over the year. The capital Augusta can record 1,075
millimeters of annual precipitation. From December till March most
precipitation falls in the form of snow. Tens of centimeters of snow
may fall per day. Summers are fairly wet. However, the sun still
shines exuberantly, about 220-280 hours per month. In July And August
temperatures are between 25-28 degrees Celsius (77-82 degrees
Fahrenheit). So despite the occasional shower summers are pleasant.
