Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Gray ME 111 AM EDT Mon Sep 27 2021

SYNOPSIS. Cooler, more seasonal conditions are expected through the middle of the week. Variably cloudy conditions and the chance for scattered showers continue mid-week as a upper level low drifts over the area. It is unlikely any single day will be a washout, but there will be a threat for several rounds of showers through the week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THIS MORNING/. 1am Update . Just a few adjustments to temp at this hour with some upper 40s creeping into the Bath/Brunswick area. With dewts at similar temps, calming winds, clear skies and the heavy rains last night, wouldn't be surprised for some ground fog to develop soon. Will see progression of overnight fog and adjust if needed for main package.

10 PM Update . Just a few minor adjustments to the going forecast at this time but nothing major. Forecast remains on track.

645 PM Update . Little change to the going forecast this evening. Mostly clear skies continue for most locations except for the CT Valley where stratocu continues to stream across. Winds will continue to gradually diminish.

Previously .

The front which had been stalled across the eastern portion of the area has finally moved through. In its wake we have seen gusty NWly winds develop with generally clear skies.

Overnight as the drier air moves in expect temperatures to drop quite a bit lower than the previous nights with mid 40s across the bulk of the area. Have dropped temps just a bit towards the cold side of the guidance spread in the normal valley cold spots. Do expect some fog formation in the CT river valley in the early morning hours.

SHORT TERM /6 AM THIS MORNING THROUGH 6 PM TUESDAY/. Tomorrow, zonal flow around the upper level low over Quebec will continue, with another short wave approaching in the afternoon. The result will be clear skies to start with an increasing chance for showers in the later afternoon. This weak front falls apart as it tries to push into the northern portion of the forecast area and expect overall little accumulation with this front, especially south of the mountains.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/. Hemispheric 500 Mb flow continues to be blocky, especially across the CONUS E into Europe. During the course of the week, the flow begins to flatten across Asia and the Pacific as the blocks strengthen up a bit before they start to flatten a bit next weekend. This will initially allow 500 mb closed low to develop to our N early in the week and then meander slowly S over the area mid-late week. This will bring us seasonally cool temps with highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s across much of the area. There will also be a few rounds of clouds and maybe showers as waves of energy rotate around that closed low. Could see some improvement late in the weekend, but the better chance is over the weekend.

Tuesday will be the warmest day as coolest air comes in Tuesday night after wave passes main to our S. Highs range from around 60 in the mtns, where there will be more clouds, to the upper 60s in the S. It gets cooler Tue night, and winds will die off as well, but not sure how cold it will get given the potential for clouds and a persistent NW boundary layer flow. Still lows in the upper 30s in the mountains are reasonable, and ranging to the mid-upper 40s in the S. Highs on Wed will be cooler as the core of the cool air moves in overhead. Wed may be the sunniest day of the mid-late week with highs 55-60 in the mtns to the mid 60s in the S. Thu-Fri will see more in the way of clouds, although downslope flow likely will keep the coastal plain partly sunny. Temps both day will feature highs in the upper 50s to mid 60s, and lows in the upper 30s to upper 40s.

AVIATION /06Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. Short Term . VFR conditions under NWLy flow dominate the area as the front has moved off to our east. Overnight valley fog is again likely in the CT river valley bringing LEB and HIE to IFR while elsewhere conditions hold VFR.

VFR remains through the day tomorrow, with increasing clouds by late afternoon in the north bringing a chance for showers and MVFR.

Long Term . Mainly VFR Tue-Fri, with some periods of MVFR cigs and showers, most common at KHIE.

MARINE. Short Term . Have cancelled the SCA for the overnight hours and for Monday morning as seas are marginal and coming down. However, it remains in effect for Monday afternoon and night for gusts around 25 kt and seas building to 5, perhaps 6 feet on the outer waters.

Long Term . Winds/seas generally forecast to stay below SCA thresholds Tue-Fri.

GYX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. ME . None. NH . None. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory from 2 PM this afternoon to 6 AM EDT Tuesday for ANZ150-152-154.

NEAR TERM . Cornwell/Ekster SHORT TERM . Curtis LONG TERM . Cempa
