THE WEATHER REPORT:
"The Weather Report" is the conversations we have about how the forecast affects us daily in Aroostook County.
Some rain on Saturday and overcast at times through the weekend, but still nice enough to get out and do all kinds of things in northern Maine.
Did you go to the Farmer’s Market on Riverside Saturday or Sunday? There is so much fresh and organic food to buy there. Plus, it’s the perfect place to run into friends and find some of the funnest things to do.
Yard work is always on the agenda. We saw a lot of neighbors out and about making their homes look beautiful. Be mindful of the ants right now. They can get in your house and the trail will seem endless. A good exterior bug spray - even hornet spray - can get rid of the nuisance.
If you’re planning on painting outdoors, now is a good time. Keep an eye on the forecast just in case it’s sunny when you start but rain could be on the horizon. You have to have time for it to dry.
Looking ahead this week, some higher temps are coming on Monday with rain and thunder and lightning at times. It’s something to be aware of for your daily routine and your dog might not like the thunder and run for cover.
Tuesday has showers with a high in the low to mid 70’s. It’s not the most conducive weather for starting the week, but it gets better by Wednesday with clear skis and a temp in the low 70’s.
Thursday through Saturday looks like another stretch of days to get some things done outside. Even if “getting things done” means doing nothing but grilling and relaxing after a hard day's work.
If you're on vacation during any of next week, make sure to chill out and enjoy your time off.
