area forecast discussion
national weather service caribou me
1107 am edt Sun aug 20 2017

Synopsis
High pressure will build to the south of the area today and
Monday. Low pressure will pass to the west of the region Tuesday
night and a cold front will cross the area Wednesday. High
pressure will build back toward the area at the end of the week.

Near term through tonight
11 am update. A line of convected showers is moving into the
northwest. Hrrr is projecting this line to hold together as it
moves across the far north during the midday hours. Raised pops
to scattered showers, 50%, over the north with isolated
thunderstorms. Also put scattered showers across central
piscataquis east across northern penobscot county with spotty
convection showers showing up on radar over the highlands.

Previous discussion...

an occluded front crossing the region early this morning will
push east. High pressure will build south of the region later
today and tonight. A mid level trough axis will move into
western maine this morning and will flatten out as it shifts
east of the area by this afternoon. The forecast area is
blanketed by low stratus and areas of fog early this morning,
although there are a few breaks in the clouds in central
portions of the cwa. The low clouds will lift this morning as
westerly flow develops. As the mid level trough crosses the area
the combination of the residual moisture, daytime heating, and
lift will likely produce some more scattered showers later this
morning into the first half of the afternoon, mainly across
northern and eastern portions of the cwa. It should turn into a
nice afternoon by late in the day with at least partial sunshine
and lowering humidity. There will be very steep lapse rates
from 8-10c km below 800h which will lead to a gusty west wind
that will gust to 20 to 30 mph at times from later this morning
until shortly before sunset. Highs this afternoon will be about
10 degrees (f) warmer than Saturday with highs ranging from the
mid 70s in the saint john valley to the low 80s in the greater
bangor region. Tonight will be clear to p cloudy, and as the
atmosphere rapidly decouples toward sunset the wind will become
light. The air mass aloft is quite mild and this will limit the
potential cooling with lows mostly in the 50s.

Short term Monday through Tuesday
Very warm and increasingly humid weather can be expected to
start the work week as an area of high pressure builds across to
our south. Temperatures at h925 warm to about +22c during Monday
across portions of the region with mostly sunny skies expected.

Highs will range from the low to mid 80s across much of the
region, which is several degrees above normal for this time of
year. A cold front will approach from the northwest Monday night
with partly to mostly cloudy skies across northern areas and
the chance for late night showers. Across central and down east
expect mainly clear to partly cloudy skies. Lows Monday night
will be well above normal, with lows expected to generally range
from the low to mid 60s across the region. The front will stall
across far northern areas Tuesday as an area of low pressure
tracks northeast across quebec province. The combination of the
stalled frontal boundary in the vicinity of northern maine and
low pressure to our northwest will result in increasing chances
for showers and thunderstorms during Tuesday, especially across
northern areas. An increasingly moist air mass is expected to be
in place with dew points in the low to mid 60s and precipitable
water values expected to increase to greater than 1.50" which could
lead to the possibility of locally heavy rainfall later Tuesday
afternoon across northern areas, especially in any
thunderstorms. Highs on Tuesday will again be above normal for
this time of year, with highs expected to range from the mid to
upper 70s north and low to mid 80s down east.

Long term Tuesday night through Saturday
Low pressure will continue to track to our north Tuesday night
with a warm front lifting up across the region to our north. The
chance for showers and thunderstorms will continue overnight
Tuesday, as a warm and humid air mass remains in place across
the region ahead of an approaching cold front from the west. The
cold front is expected to cross northern areas Wednesday morning
and reach the down east coast later Wednesday afternoon. Expect
a continued chance for showers with the passage of the front. A
large area of high pressure will then begin to build east toward
the region Wednesday night through Saturday, with a much cooler
and drier air mass spreading across the region for mid week into
next weekend. With an upper trof remaining to our north couldn't
rule out an isolated shower across northern areas through late
week, otherwise expect mainly dry weather through the period
with temperatures expected to below normal by late week and
into next weekend.

Aviation 15z Sunday through Thursday
Near term: vlifr to ifr ceilings early this morning will lift
toVFR by 13z to 15z.VFR expected from 15z this morning through
12z Monday morning.

Short term:VFR conditions can be expected Monday and Monday
night. Showers and thunderstorms can be expected Tuesday
afternoon, especially at the northern terminals, with the
potential for subVFR conditions at times. Expect MVFR
conditions Tuesday night in showers and thunderstorms, along
with patchy fog. Showers can be expected into Wednesday with
mainlyVFR expected.VFR expected on Thursday.

Marine
Near term: the wind and seas will remain below small craft advisory
levels through tonight. Areas of fog will produce poor visibility
early this morning.

Short term: winds seas are expected to remain below small craft
advisory levels Monday into Tuesday. Winds seas may could
increase to small craft advisory levels by Tuesday night and
Wednesday. Visibility will likely be reduced to 1 to 3 nm
Tuesday night in showers and thunderstorms, along with patchy
fog.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
