area forecast discussion
national weather service caribou me
622 am edt Tue oct 17 2017

Synopsis
High pressure will crest over the area today. A weak warm front
will approach the area this evening. High pressure will cross
the region Wednesday.

Near term through tonight
620am update... No signficant changes were made to the forecast.

Previous discussion...

the ridge of high pressure will move through the area this
morning with winds shifting from northerly to southwesterly very
quickly. This means warmer temperatures for today with highs in
the low to mid 50s under sunny skies. The SW winds will
increase this afternoon as the high slides to the south and
gusts over 20 mph are expected in northern zones. Clouds will
increase from the northwest as the warm front approaches. The
parent low for this frontal system will be with a low moving
from james bay towards labrador. The accompanying upper level
shortwave with this system will be weakening today and tonight
as a strong upper level ridge builds behind it. For these
reasons and the fact that the system will be moisture-starved
in a dry NW upper flow, will only go with slight chance pops in
northern aroostook county this evening... And none elsewhere.

What this system will do is generate enough cloud cover to keep
Tuesday night's lows in the upper 30s and set the stage for much
warmer temperatures on Wednesday.

Short term Wednesday through Thursday night
High pressure will build across the region Wednesday, then exit
to the east Wednesday night. Partly mostly sunny skies are
expected across northern areas Wednesday, with mostly sunny
skies across the remainder of the region. Clear skies are
expected across the forecast area Wednesday night. A warm front
will cross the region early Thursday, with a cold front crossing
Thursday night. Generally expect mostly sunny skies across the
region Thursday, though cloud cover will begin to increase
across northern areas during the afternoon. Partly cloudy skies
are expected across the forecast area Thursday night, with a
chance of showers mostly across northern areas. Temperatures
will be at above normal levels Wednesday Thursday.

Long term Friday through Monday
High pressure will build across the region Friday through
Saturday, then begin to exit across the maritimes Sunday. Mostly
clear skies are expected Friday Saturday, with mostly partly
sunny skies Sunday. A slow moving cold front will approach from
the west Monday, with cloud cover increasing in advance of the
front. Could also have a slight chance of showers Monday, with
increasing shower chances Monday night. Temperatures will
remain at above normal levels Friday through Monday.

Aviation 10z Tuesday through Saturday
Near term: expectVFR conditions through the period with the
slight chance of MVFR CIGS near 3000ft later tonight for sites
north of presque isle. There will be no CIGS and excellent vis
after sunrise until late this afternoon and evening when cigs
above 5000 ft arrive north of hul.

Short term: generally expectVFR conditions across the region
Wednesday through Saturday. However, occasional MVFR conditions
are possible across mostly the north and mountains Thursday
night.

Marine
Near term: winds will pick up tonight and seas will move towards
5 ft. SW gusts to 30 kt will be possible. In spite of the sw
winds, it looks like decent mixing rather than a stable
situation and have opted for an SCA in the outer waters. Will
not issue for the intracoastal waters around mdi.

Short term: small craft advisory conditions are possible early
Wednesday across much of the waters, with the exception of the
intracoastal waters. Conditions are then expected to be below
small craft advisory levels later Wednesday through early
Thursday. Small craft advisory conditions are then expected to
develop again later Thursday and persist Thursday night.

Car watches warnings advisories
Me... None.

Marine... Small craft advisory from 11 pm this evening to 8 am edt
Wednesday for anz050-051.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
