Synopsis
Low pressure will track into the gulf of maine tonight then
continue east over nova scotia on Friday. Low pressure will
stall over the eastern maritimes through the weekend as high
pressure builds in from the west.

Near term through Friday
Radar coverage, the hrrr high resolution model and the movement
of satellite enhancement are all indicating that this initial
surge of steady rain across the area will push away to the east
later tonight giving way to lighter more intermittent rain and
showers after midnight. Lowered pops late tonight to reflect
this. Also lowered temps with temperatures hovering near 60 in
most areas with the rain early this evening.

A rather large storm system for the start of summer will be
tracking across southern new england and into the gulf of maine
tonight. Rain will persist across the area through most of the
night. High pressure over central canada will push the northern
edge of the rain south late tonight ending rain over
northwestern areas while moderate to heavy rain continues
downeast. The rain will end from northwest to southeast through
the day on Friday with the rain over in all but eastern downeast
areas by the end of the day Friday. Total rain amounts from
this event will range from around a half inch over the far north
to more than an inch and a half downeast.

Short term Friday night through Sunday
Low pressure will be exiting over the canadian maritimes Friday night.

Only chance pops will remain over far eastern downeast
overnight as rest of forecast area starts to dry out. Clouds
will remain over the area without much clearing through sat
morning. Cool NW flow will increase lapse rates in the afternoon
across the area. This will bring the chance for some afternoon
or early evening showers. If breaks in the clouds can be
realized... Easy to do with high summer Sun angles... Some
instability could be on tap. This would mean the chance for some
thunder in more organized showers. MLCAPE values of 200-400
j kg are maximized over central and downeast areas, with chance
to carry thunder out of larger showers Sat afternoon. Showers
will tend to pulse, without much to sustain an updraft.

Mid-level NW flow accelerates into evening and overnight into
Sunday as dry air advects in. The 50-60kt 500mb jet will allow
this dry air to limit cloud cover to a few daytime cumulus
Sunday afternoon. Mixing would allow some winds to be
transferred to the surface, with gusts up to 30mph possible
across the north and central areas. The offshore flow will allow
highs temperatures to rise to the 70s for the coast, with
interior downeast and bangor region in the upper 70s.

Long term Sunday night through Thursday
Nw flow remains across the area Sunday night into Monday
morning, with dry weather continuing through Monday night.

Ridging builds Tuesday as a weak frontal boundary approaches
with rain. Canadian and ECMWF have come into line with a less
northerly transit of low pressure in the upper plains, bringing
the low slowly over the great lakes. Unfortunately this would
mean a long duration synoptic rain for much of maine Wednesday
through Thursday as the low tracks into or north of the
northeast. Still time for exact pattern to develop, but plan on
chances of rain into mid-week. Overall, daytime highs will run
at or around average for mid-june.

Aviation 22z Thursday through Tuesday
Near term: ifr conditions in low clouds and rain are expected
today into Friday. Conditions will improve to MVFR over the
north around midday Friday then improve toVFR across the north
late in the day. Ifr conditions downeast may improve to MVFR
late in the day Friday.

Short term: sites will trend MVFR Friday night toVFR sat
morning. Showers will develop in the afternoon with highest
chances across central and downeast terminals. High pressure
Sunday thru Monday night will continueVFR. Clouds begin to
thicken and lower across the area Tuesday, going MVFR.

Marine
Near term: winds and seas should remain below SCA tonight and
Friday. Rain and fog will likely reduce visibilities over the
waters tonight through Friday morning.

Short term: low pressure will exit Friday night with winds and
waves below sca. NW flow will increase into Sunday with gusts
approaching 20kts. Otherwise, waves will start 4ft and begin to
subside through Monday and Tuesday.
