Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

area forecast discussion

607 am edt Fri jun 22 2018

Synopsis
High pressure will slowly move southeast of the area today into
Saturday. Low pressure will approach from the great lakes later
Saturday then cross the region Saturday night into Sunday.

Near term through tonight
605 am update...

the big story this morning is the very chilly temperatures.

Current temperatures across far northern areas have fallen into
the low to mid 30s. The coldest reading was up at estcourt
station where the temperature fell to 29 degrees. Houlton set a
new low temperature record for the date. The temperature dropped
to 34 degrees at the houlton airport, which breaks the previous
record 36 degrees set way back in 1948. We will moderate nicely
today under plentiful sunshine. No changes to going forecast.

Previous discussion
abundant sunshine is expected today as high pressure slides off
the coast this afternoon. High temperatures today will be in
the low to mid 70s, close to seasonal normals for this time of
year. As the high slides east a more onshore flow is expected to
develop, keeping coastal areas a bit cooler. An sps has been
issued to highlight the cold water hazard for inland lakes and
rivers today. A beach hazards statement has also been issued for
the downeast coast for today. A mainly clear sky is expected
tonight and it will not be as chilly as last night. Lows tonight
are expected to range from the upper 40s to near 50 degrees.

Short term Saturday through Monday
Sat will be a fair day, spcly ovr NRN and ERN ptns of the fa
which will have the most sunshine before cldnss spreads ovr all
of the rgn from the wsw from weak low pres apchg from the lower
great lakes later in the day. The leading edge of shwrs will
enter far SW ptns of the fa by erly eve and spread into the n
and E by the ovrngt hrs. An area of more organized rnfl is
possible over cntrl and downeast areas during the ovr to late
ngt hrs, where we went with higher likely pops. A pd of lesser
isold to sct shwr cvrg is then xpctd across the rgn durg the day
sun when we will be between the first departing system exiting
the can maritimes and a new developing low pres ovr the gulf of
me by Sun ngt as a potent S WV from james bay can drops SE into
n cntrl new eng. Another round of more enhanced rnfl is then
xpctd Sun ngt into Mon morn msly ovr cntrl and downeast areas
where we show a MAX of categorical pops as the sfc low moves
ene alg the S nova scotia coast. Shwrs will then end from NW to
se across the rgn on Mon as the upper trof axis crosses, with
decreasing cldnss also from NW to SE across the area Mon aftn
and eve. No plans ATTM to introduce any thunder to the fcst sat
ngt thru Mon mon with very little if any MUCAPE shown thru this
tm. This is related to sfc temps, will initially begin at or
just abv normal, then become below normal by Sun and cont thru
mon due to cld cvr and rnfl.

Long term Monday night through Thursday
Skies will clr later Mon ngt across the fa as sfc hi pres builds
ovr the fa from the W leading to a nice day on Tue with a sharp
recovery of aftn hi temps under ptly to msly sunny skies. After
a fair and mild ngt Tue ngt, Wed will also feature ptly to msly
sunny skies and a little warmer more humid conditions. Cldnss
will begin to increase ovr our rgn from the W Wed ngt into thu
as another S WV from S cntrl can and the upper great lks begins
to apch. For now, we hold off on mentioning sct shwrs tstms to
msly Thu aftn into eve, but the trend of recent model runs
appears to be making this system more progressive, so it's
possible we may mention shwrs erly on Thu in future fcst updates
if this trend conts. After mild ovrngt lows Wed ngt, hi temps
thu compared to Wed will be dependent on how much sunshine
potential will exist prior to arrival of any shwrs tstms.

Aviation 10z Friday through Tuesday
Near term:VFR through tonight.

Short to long term:VFR conditions are xpctd all TAF sites fri
thru sat, aftwrds, clgs and ocnly vsbys will lower to MVFR in
shwrs Sat ngt and cont so on sun. Clgs and vsbys will lower to
ifr most sites later Sun ngt into Mon morn in more organized
rnfl, then improve to MVFR Mon aftn in tapering shwrs and then
back toVFR Mon ngt... Contg into tue.

tonight.

Short to long term: no definitive pd of SCA conditions xpctd
thru Tue at this vantage point into these ptns of the fcst.
