Climate Central’s analysis shows how much hotter parks are projected to get later this century.

100 Years of Warming at the National Parks

More than 30,000 people living in Maine are especially vulnerable to extreme heat.

By 2050, the typical number of heat wave days in Maine is projected to quadruple from 10 to nearly 40 days a year.

Summers are getting muggier as the dewpoint temperature rises

Maine is projected to see a 70 percent increase in threat from widespread summer drought by 2050.

Blueberry production will be impacted by droughts, especially in the summer when they require more moisture. Maine is the largest producer of wild blueberries in the world. Maine produces 10 percent of all blueberries in North America, including wild and cultivated production. 

In Maine, more than 130,000 people are living in areas at elevated risk of inland flooding.

Maine saw 58% percent of stations experience a lower percentage of winter precipitation falling as snow.

It’s not just April showers: more water can evaporate into a warmer atmosphere at all times of the year, and what goes up must eventually come down.

Atlantic hurricane season is seeing more major storms

Today, Maine has 7,000 people at risk of coastal flooding. By 2050, an additional 6,000 people are projected to be at risk due to sea level rise.
