July and August Weather/airports

Good evening,

My wife and I talking about making a trip to the Island next summer. What's the weather like? We're from Texas so, heat isn't a problem but, how cold is it? Do we need to bring hoodies and stuff?

Also, what airport would we land at? We'll be leaving from either DFW or Love Field.

One would fly into Bangor, Maine to visit Mount Desert Island/Acadia National Park/Bar Harbor. It's a bit over an hour's drive from Bangor to Bar Harbor. One could also fly into Portland, Maine which is about a three hour drive to Bar Harbor.

The weather in July and August generally sees highs in the 70s to low 80 and nights in the 60s.

I agree with the first post. Given that you are more accustomed to hot weather, if you plan on things like watching sunrise from Cadillac summit (or sunset from about the same place) or taking one of the boat tours, a light hoodie or windbreaker would be a good idea.
