Quarterly Climate Impacts and Outlook for the Gulf of Maine Region for June – August 2017. Dated September 2017.  

Summer was characterized by high variability in temperature, rainfall, and weather events. Moderate drought developed in portions of Maine and the Maritimes, while parts of Massachusetts and New Hampshire had several heavy rain events. There were multiple severe thunderstorm and flash flooding events throughout the
summer.


NOAA’s Regional Climate Services Program created these Climate Outlooks to inform the public about recent climate impacts within their respective regions. Each regional report contains easy-to-understand language, and anyone can access them through the Drought Portal at https://www.drought.gov/drought/resources/reports.
