ESTCOURT STATION, Maine (AP) - Maine’s wacky weather has changed swiftly from a rare summertime frost to powerful thunderstorms.

The National Weather Service reports that the temperature dipped below freezing to 31 degrees in Escourt Station, on the Canadian border.

Meteorologist Mark Bloomer from the National Weather Service said Tuesday that such a cold reading in the summer is “pretty unusual but not unheard of.”

By Tuesday afternoon, however, the cold temperatures were forgotten as powerful thunderstorms moved across the state.
