Aroostook County is 89 percent forestland many lakes, state parks, rivers and streams and it's known for its' excellent outdoor life.

Island Falls Weather & Climate

Maine's Northeast climate is four seasons and highly changeable -- it can go from sunny to stormy in short order. Summers in the Katahdin Region, near the Canadian border, are cool, with highs in the 70s or sometimes reaching the low 80s. Interior areas experience a greater range of temperatures in the summer, with some nights in northern areas near freezing. Winters in Maine are cold and sometimes even frigid. January temperatures range from 11 to 31 F along the coast and 1 to 19 F inland. The snow can be lovely, and if you aren't opposed to cold weather, wintertime is a great time to visit Maine. Continuous snow is generally on the ground from December through February and sometimes into March. Daytime highs gradually increase March through May. In September, the spectacular colors of fall blaze and sunny days and cool nights characterize this favorite season of many in Maine.
