THE WEATHER REPORT:

"The Weather Report" is the conversations we're having about the forecast and how it affects are daily lives.

The good news is the pandemic mandates are loosening so we can do more outdoors soon. The bad news is the weather looks like rain and thunderstorms through the weekend. Rain is also in the forecast for next week.

You take the good with the bad. We all want to get out and get some exercise or do just the opposite - relax and do nothing in the sunshine of Aroostook County.

There’s a chance to do both. You already see people going out and taking walks as May is in full swing.

The temps will be nice as we are seeing the trend of mid to even upper 60’s. That will stay steady with some ups and downs, buy mostly ups.

It’s also not too humid this time of year. The time when the garden should be already planted and starting to sprout a little. Make sure you protect it from all the critters out and about who are also taking advantage of the nice weather.

A lot of moose sightings this time of year as the black flies invade. One spotter coming from Fort Kent to Presque Isle saw five moose in one trip.

Even with the rain and some thunder rolling, we know one thing for sure - no more snow storms until next season. That’s a relief in itself. As they say, always look on the sunny side of life. So true.

Get out and enjoy the weekend - just bring an umbrella or light jacket to stay dry. Start looking forward to all the events being planned this year.

LOOK: Stunning vintage photos capture the beauty of America's national parks

Today these parks are located throughout the country in 25 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The land encompassing them was either purchased or donated, though much of it had been inhabited by native people for thousands of years before the founding of the United States. These areas are protected and revered as educational resources about the natural world, and as spaces for exploration.
