This incredible tool will show forecasts
and hazards all along your Google map route, using our forecasts that we are updating
Below is a snapshot of the tool in action from Thursday, December 5. We said that we wanted to
leave Fort Kent at 1pm, heading for Bangor. As you can see below, there was a threat of icing with
temperatures hovering around freezing from Fort Kent to just before Millinocket, then as you got
near Bangor toward 5pm, it changed to all rain with 39°F in Bangor.
