Bundled up in warm blankets and winter attire, it’s easy to feel curious about exactly how cold our state is compared to everywhere else in the country. To put an end to your curiosity, let’s find out exactly

According to the
Average Annual Temperatures that have been recorded for each state, Maine is the third coldest place in America.
That's right! In the top group of states that have earned the title of being the coldest places all year round in America, Maine made its way into the top three.
Recognized as being one of the most consistently cold states, our state is the most frigid during the spring.
While Maine may be the third coldest state when it comes to year-round average temperatures, we're ranked fourth when it comes to summer and winter temperatures.
With an average annual temperature of just 41 degrees Fahrenheit, our residents have learned to live with the cold.
This number isn't one that will shock any of our residents; on most days a temperature that high feels like a gift from above!
