...PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT...

THE PRELIMINARY HIGH TEMPERATURE THIS AFTERNOON IN CARIBOU, MAINE
WAS 95 DEGREES (F). THIS BREAKS THE DAILY RECORD FOR JUNE 18TH OF
90 DEGREES, LAST SET IN 1955. THE LAST TIME THERE WAS A HIGH OF 
95 DEGREES WAS BACK ON JULY 20, 1991. THERE HAVE ONLY BEEN A TOTAL
OF 9 DAYS SINCE WEATHER RECORDS BEGAN IN CARIBOU WITH A HIGH OF 
95 DEGREES. THE ALL-TIME RECORD OF 96 DEGREES WAS ESTABLISHED ON 
JUNE 29, 1944 AND AGAIN ON MAY 22, 1977.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO POINT OUT THAT WEATHER RECORDS IN CARIBOU
BEGAN ON JANUARY 16, 1939, AND THUS DO NOT INCLUDE ALL OF THE 20TH
CENTURY. 

PRESQUE ISLE, MAINE HAS OBSERVED A HIGH OF 99 DEGREES ON 2 DAYS.
THE FIRST WAS ON JULY 11, 1911, AND AGAIN ON AUGUST 18, 1935. ON 
AUGUST 18, 1935, WOODSTOCK (CLOSE TO HOULTON, MAINE), NEIPISGUIT 
FALLS, AND REXTON NEW BRUNSWICK ALL OBSERVED A HIGH OF 103 
DEGREES. EDMUNSDSTON, NEW BRUNSWICK JUST ACROSS THE BORDER FROM 
MADAWASKA, MAINE OBSERVED A HIGH OF 99 DEGREES ON JUNE 3, 1919. 
MILLINOCKET, MAINE HAS OBSERVED A HIGH OF 100 DEGREES ON THREE
OCCASIONS WITH AN ALL-TIME HIGH OF 101 DEGREES ON JUNE 18, 1907. 
THE ALL-TIME RECORD HIGH IN BANGOR IS 104 DEGREES ON AUGUST 19, 
1935. 

IT IS PROBABLE, AND EVEN LIKELY THAT CARIBOU HAD A HIGH 
TEMPERATURE WARMER THAN 96 DEGREES ON AUGUST 18, 1935, BUT BECAUSE
WEATHER DATA WAS NOT OBSERVED THERE IS NO RECORD.
