Spring/Summer 2002


Volume 5

Maine-ly Weather

on lakes and rivers.  We will show you how you can use the NWS to better plan for your recreation, and for your vacation too.
As usual, we will feature the cooperative observers, without a doubt, a tremendous help to the NWS and the nation's climatic picture.  We will have a wrap-up on the "Record-breaking warmest winter" and an update on the drought status for  northern New England. 
And that is just for openers.

Welcome to the Spring and Summer edition of Maine-ly Weather.  We hope you find many articles of interest. 
The National Weather Service is improving the ease of finding products and services through the Internet.  This issuance of
Maine-ly Weather seems to be the perfect opportunity to introduce our customers to the wealth of information available. We will be highlighting the educational opportunities on the Internet with NOAA and the NWS.  The focus is directed towards the new Internet homepage design of the NWS.  For those of you do not have access to the Internet at home, perhaps this will encourage you to visit your Public Library where

Internet access is available, or visit with a friend who is online. 
We will also be talking about El Ni
Zo, and what to expect in our region from this weather phenomena. Links are offered for more detailed or national impact information.
Information on the National Weather Service Radar, NEXRAD, and the various warning products will be highlighted, along with updates on the long-awaited improvements to the NOAA Weather Radio program for Northern, Central, and DownEast Maine.
Summer is also when we focus on marine activities
--not just with ocean activities, but also

Status of the new Office for WFO Caribou

The exterior of the new 'state-of-the-art' building is almost completed as of mid March, 2002.  Interior work is progressing rapidly, and we hope to be moving into the new building by July.  Regretfully, due to the security measures that have been required of all Federal Agencies since the tragedy of September 11th, we are unsure as to whether we will be

allowed to host an open house for the new facility.  If circumstances change, where security  regulations are relaxed, we may be able to host an open house. If this becomes  possible, we will post announcements on our home page, and with the local media to publicize  the event.
