  Spring can be very foggy with temperatures ranging between 30 and 70 degrees. Blackflies and mosquitoes are common. Long sleeve shirts and long pants are recommended for protection from insects. Annual rainfall is four feet.

Summer daytime temperatures may range from 45 to 90 degrees, while evenings may be considerably cooler.  Layered dressing is recommended for any outdoor strenuous activities. Ocean water temperatures may range from 50 to 60 degrees, while lake water temperatures can range from 55 to 70 degrees.

Fall temperatures can range from the low 70s during daylight hours to freezing at nighttime. Snow is possible. Autumn foliage often peaks during the first few weeks of October, although the amount of moisture during the summer months can affect foliage timing.

Winter and conditions change rapidly, and snow is frequent, due to Acadia's coastal location. Temperatures vary from the mid-30s to well below zero, and Acadia averages about 60" of snow each winter. For current weather information, call the local weather phone line at (207)667-8910, or call park headquarters at (207)288-3338.
