Acadia Weather

Contemplating a trip for several days beginning October 5. Good time of year for sunny and temperate weather? My sense from some research is highs that time of year should be around 60 degrees. Accurate?

Sounds about right. Bring a sweatshirt or jacket for the evenings because it can get cold at night.

Great time to come if you have the right clothing --- air is crisp and clean, humidity is lower than earlier in the summer/fall... Most of the natives consider it our favorite time of year....

I'd plan to dress in layers -- golf shirt with light sweater or long-sleeved overshirt during the daytime.... add a sweatshirt, jacket or "fleece" for the evenings....

HIghs in the 60s isn't a bad guess, although some days may warm up beyond that a bit. Light layering and windbreakers, as suggested above, is the way to go. If you want to look at the weather history for that time period, check out:


Enter the location or zip code -- 04609 will work -- and the range of dates.

As the time for your visit approaches, the best forecast specifically for Mount Desert Island is at:


And just to round things out, the fall foliage report and forecast is at:
