how's the weather late Sept. early Oct.?

We are taking a 10 day trip traveling along the coast then up to the mountains. Would long pants and light jackets be OK for this time of year? Thanks for your comments!

I can't speak to the situation in the mountains, inland. On the coast, it still will be comfortable "shorts" weather if you are hiking, biking, or taking long walks; evenings, long pants and a light jacket or sweater are a good idea.

From just a quick scan of comparative weather history, it looks like here on the coast (Bar Harbor) we average about 5 F cooler at night and about 10 F cooler during the day for the period you mention.

Depends on where you're from. Many people from 'away' will find it too cool for shorts that time of year. You will not be uncomfortable in long pants. As always in Maine, dress in layers so you can pull on and off as the day dictates. It's a great time of year to visit - the tour buses can get a little tedious but it's worth the inconvenience for the views.
