Many of the locals will tell you the only bad time to visit Maine is never.

From November to March the state is transformed into a winter wonderland, where visitors can hit the slopes, which offer both runs for skiing and snowboarding, as well as plenty of trails for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling. The weather in winter can be cold, very cold at times so be sure to bundle up.

Average Temperatures*:

November - mid 40's

December - low 30's

January - mid 20's

February - mid 30's

With the spring thaw Maine warms up quickly. And this state certainly has a full four seasons. The temperatures in the spring gradually climb from March through May, and by the time summer is in bloom the landscape is transformed from snow and ice to lush green that blankets the state.

Average Tempuratures:

March - 40 ish

April - 50's

May - mid 60's

There are plenty of outdoor summer activities, and while summers can be warm they’re never exactly hot. The area doesn’t have experience the high humidity of the south so even in the summer it can feel somewhat cool.

Average Tempuratures

June - August - mid to high 70's (and a little warmer at the coast)

And with the coming of fall that blanket of trees is transformed into glorious colors as the massive forests put on quite a show. The fall can have a chill in the air, and it turns to winter a bit sooner in Northern New England but that just means its time to head to the slopes again!

Average Tempuratures

September -  mid 60's

October - mid 50's

 

*These temperatures are average across the state, which is obviously very much in the northeastern US,  and has mountinous terrain as well as coastline.
