Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Gray ME 307 PM EDT Mon Oct 18 2021

SYNOPSIS. Upper level low will continue chances for showers primarily in the mountains through Tuesday. Above normal temperatures return Wednesday into Friday followed by another cool down over the weekend. Chances for widespread precipitation through the end of the week are low as the next low pressure system passes to our northwest. There will be chances for showers across the north Thursday with a warm front with additional chances Friday with the passage of a series of cold fronts.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. Northwesterly flow around an upper level low to our northeast is dominating the weather this afternoon. This has resulted in generally widespread cloud cover, with the exception of downwind of the higher peaks where we see some clearing. Showers are widespread across the higher terrain, with rain at lower elevations and snow on the summits both being observed. Downwind of the mountains a nice convergence pattern has also resulted in some enhanced showers into York county ME.

Through evening, expect much of the showers to decay as they are supported by mostly diurnal instability. With that clearing temperatures across the coastal plain will drop rapidly under clear skies, and expect pockets of frost to develop, which could be the first of the season for some of these areas. Further north the mountains will also see temps drop into the mid 30s but with cloud cover.

SHORT TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/. Tuesday will see a continuation of the NWly flow, although not quite as windy as today as the pressure gradient and upper level low moves off to the east. A few gusts to 20mph are possible. Again expect a diurnal increase in showers across the high terrain, with rain the valley and snow on the summits. While the overall QPF amounts are quite light the continued upslope flow will amount to a few inches of snow accumulations on the peaks.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. The extended forecast period will start out with northern New England on the northeast periphery of a surface high over the SE CONUS with a belt of strong northwest flow aloft exiting the region into the Atlantic. Ridging aloft will build in on Thursday followed by an area of low pressure passing to our NW through Quebec. The bulk of the precipitation with this area of low pressure is projected to pass to our NW, although a series of cold fronts will cross the area Thursday night into the weekend. These cold fronts will bring chances for showers along with reinforcing shots of cooler air. Temperatures will start the period above normal Wednesday into Friday followed by temperatures dropping below normal Saturday into early next week.

Wednesday will mark the beginning of a stretch of warmer weather after a cool start to the week. Temperatures will climb into the upper 60s to near 70F across southern areas with 50s for high across the north. A departing belt of strong mid to low level winds may lead to a fair amount of clouds to start with clearing skies in the afternoon. An inversion will keep strong winds associated with the enhanced mid to low level flow from reaching the lower elevations although winds will be quite strong in the mountains.

Wednesday night into Thursday low pressure will be taking shape over the Great Lakes while ridging aloft crests over New England. This low will lift a warm front through the area Thursday with models suggesting precipitation will be limited with this front. Temperatures will be slightly warmer Thursday than Wednesday with partly to mostly cloudy skies. Thursday night through Friday low pressure will be tracking through the St Lawrence Valley. Current guidance suggest that this low will drag a couple cold fronts through the area Friday into Saturday with organized precipitation along the fronts washing out as they approach the area. Thus, prospects of widespread precipitation are low with some areas downstream of the mountains likely not seeing any precipitation through the forecast period. Cooler weather is expected over the weekend withs high relegated to the 50s and 40s by Sunday.

AVIATION /19Z MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. Short Term . MVFR will hold through the mountains over the next 24 to 36hrs as NWLy upslope continues. Snow showers aloft and Rain showers in the valleys will be most widespread late afternoon and wane with the sun. Elsewhere partly sunny skies with VFR continuing under NWLy flow.

Long Term . Mainly VFR is expected Wednesday through the end of the week. Low pressure passing through Quebec may bring periods of MVFR Thursday night into Friday.

MARINE. Short Term . Winds and seas will be low SCA thresholds Wednesday into Thursday. Southerly winds ahead of a series of cold fronts may approach SCA criteria Thursday night into Friday.

Long Term . NWly flow will persist for the next few days with marginal SCA conditions continuing. Best chance for strong winds will be tonight as the pressure gradient
