Actually I'm referring to the Belgrade Lakes area and just a bit south of where Tamarack is located but you're right I'm not sure if that area is actually designated as the lakes area of Maine, could be more accurately described as the foothills region between the coastal plane and the western mountains.  Rolling hills and lots of lakes and ponds in the region.  

When folks in southern Maine refer to the "Lakes Region", they generally mean Sebago and the lakes to its north and west - Naples, Bridgton area.  Generally the Belgrade Lakes always are cited with the town name included.

If you have time to fish, that weekend might be primo.  The crazy wildest pike fishing I've ever experienced came on an 80° day in early May a number of years back.  In the early season those toothy predators seek out the slightly warmed waters in shallow areas adjacent to the north shores, where sunlight reflecting off vegetation adds a slight boost.  That's where I had that pikefeast on North Pond.

I'd say Maine has several lake regions, including the "lakes region" as the tourist guides refer to around Sebago. Belgrade, Rangeley, Lincoln, Grand...that I can think of. Family has a place on Duck Lake in the Lincoln Lakes region.

One of my favorites among the landbase on which I work.  Is your place on the northeast shore?

Follow-up to my previous post.  The secondary education facility in Naples, Maine is called Lake Region HS.  Not only Belgrade, but most other lake groups in the state have place names added - Fish River chain of lakes, Sysladobsis Lakes, Machias River lakes, are some examples.

It's more northwest shore. There is another Duck Lake which is bigger than the Duck Lake we're on in Lakeville. It flows into Junior Lake to the southeast .

It's funny, cuz you have Big Madawaska Lake, and Little Madawaska Lake and they aren't even in Madawaska;  I think they're in the town of Cross Lake, Maine, which Ironically also has a lake in it (Cross Lake) named after the town.

Got the wrong Duck.  The one to the south is amid 30,000 acres of public land, while the lakefront lot among the 3 original Public Lots on Lakeville is on Keg Lake, rather than Duck.  I'm not sure about current access, but the smallest of the 3 (McGoon Pond lot) lies in the NW corner of the town, has not had timber harvesting in 50+ years, and is one of the best examples of the eastern Maine inland forest that greeted the first European invaders.  

It's funny, cuz you have Big Madawaska Lake, and Little Madawaska Lake and they aren't even in Madawaska;  I think they're in the town of Cross Lake, Maine, which Ironically also has a lake in it (Cross Lake) named after the town.

Those lakes are on the town(s) east of Cross Lake twp, and are the source of the Little Madawaska River.  The (bigger) Madawaska River flows into the St. John at Edmundston, NB, right across the river from Madawaska.  Trivia note:  Those latter 2 communities share the only international pulp and paper facilities of which I'm aware.  The mill in Edmundston reduces wood to cellulose-rich pulp, which is piped as a slurry across the St. John to the paper mill in Madawaska.

Yes. For that reason we don't get to use it much for weekend getaways since we'd spend a lot of time traveling. But because it's out of the way, it's pretty quiet there even in mid-summer. Often have the lake to ourselves. Nice area for t-storms.

We said 90 might be hit and yes that is very much on the table for Wed or more likely Thursday 

If I recall, just the other day some were laughing at your call for 80's next week.  Now I am seeing 80's calls going hard and heavy.

This run of the Euro actually does it ... Funny, it's support in the GGEM waned some...while maybe came back slightly in the GFS...  But the Euro is also showing steadily increasing gradient overall... with lots of very cold heights reestablishing N of the 60th parallel across the Canadian Shield... That's transitively problematic for sustaining warm air at our latitude because that means you have erosive tendency of the northern ridge arc by steady diet of S/W and other stuff going on... 

In any case, this run actually taps plateau heated air from Old Mexico and intermingles that with the continental WCB ...interesting.  The model's doing that because overall out there toward D7 the flow over N/A is very highly amplified ... Deep digging into the SW is pulling that air up... indicative of us "maybe" getting a heat dose at the expense of spring snow buildup in the southern Rockiers ..or colder there in the least.  Will was mentioning how those with heat fetishes in TX might actually look for this flow type down there and viola -it pops on the model just days later.

Nope. Not close. Please stop making things up. You were the one that cancelled 80’s when Dendrite called you on it 

You mean when I posted the Euro output, I didn't forecast HHH and told people to install Air conditioners for upper 70s low 80s for a couple of days. Go hide in the AC sally

You need to find that post must have missed it. Everyone knew a couple of warm days were coming but all hype all the time was hyping 90 and the need for air conditioning
