SYNOPSIS. Low pressure will track north of the area this afternoon. Canadian high pressure will build later Saturday into Sunday. Another low will approach and track north of the state on Monday. A cold front will push through Monday night with high pressure returning on Tuesday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. 1245PM update . Winds and cold advection are the big stories today into tonight. Temperatures will be falling all afternoon and wind chills will be dipping into the single digits this afternoon and below zero in northern zones by this evening. The wind gusts over 40 mph have likely caused a few power outages and will probably continue to do so this afternoon. Did increase wind gusts for today in this update. The cold air arriving is as cold as we've had this season and will continue to generate snow shower streamers with moisture from the St Lawrence. As always, guidance doesn't handle this situation well and have lined up PoPs and the snow shower forecast with our cloud cover forecast this afternoon and evening. This is mostly for northern zones. The combination of snow showers and the winds will generate blowing snow in Aroostook County. Blowing snow and moisture freezing on roads will continue to produce some hazardous travel in northern zones today into this evening.

Prev Disc: A close look at mesoscale forecast models reveals a meso shortwave trough alf accompanying a strong cold front from Ern QB coming through in the early morning as much colder air begins to surge in. This could bring a a brief band of snow shwrs accompanied by strong winds which could produce near squall like conditions msly across the far North til about mid morning impacting U.S. Rte 1 corridor from KHUL nwrd. Added a brief period of numerous snow showers thru early morning for NW and NE Aroostook county with sct sn shwrs for adjacent areas swrd. Further S ovr Cntrl and Downeast areas, distance from the the upper dynamics from the s/wv trof and downsloping from higher mtns to the W will reduce sn shwr cvrg to isold or less this morn with ptly cldy skies thru the day. Once the s/wv moves E of the FA late this morn, sn shwrs across the N will become sct to isold by early aftn, taking on St Lawrence streamer characteristics. Eventually, sn shwrs will dissipate to flurries or no wx by erly eve.

Otherwise strong gusty northwest winds with max gusts upwards to 35 to 40 mph, and even a little higher ovr some higher trrn lctns will advect semi-arctic air into the Rgn, resulting in a slow anti-diurnal trend of temps tdy with high temps of lower to mid 30s erly this morn dropping into the 20s this aftn and even the mid to upper teens ovr the far NW. Winds will only gradually diminish tngt with cont'd mdt llvl cold advcn as skies clr ovr Cntrl and Downeast areas and partially clr across the N, with partial clrg latest tngt ovr far NE ptns of the FA. Ovrngt lows will range from the mid single digits ovr the NW to mid to upper teens ovr NW ptns of the FA with little or no potential of radiational cooling due to winds and a well mixed blyr.

SHORT TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/. A westerly flow aloft can be expected on Saturday as weak surface high transits the forecast area. The big story will be the cold temperatures, as afternoon highs are only expected to be in the 20s. This will result in departures of some 10 degrees below normal for this time of year. Fortunately, the wind will not be as strong as it was on Friday, with a relatively weak pressure gradient across the region. Expect a mainly sunny sky Saturday morning, followed by increasing afternoon clouds, ahead of an advancing short wave and clipper type system from the west.

Clouds continue to increase Saturday evening as the aforementioned system moves east. There will be the chance of snow showers Saturday night as the short wave crosses the region. This will limit radiational cooling Saturday night, but it will still be quite cold, with lows falling into the single digits above zero across the north and low to mid teens downeast.

The westerly flow aloft continues on Sunday as surface high pressure once again builds across the region. Thus, expect mainly sunny skies, but high temperatures will continue several degrees below normal for the date.

Surface high moves east into the western Atlantic Sunday night, as the upper flow becomes more southwest ahead of an upper trof from the west. Surface low is expected to track northeast across the Great Lakes region later Sunday night. Strong warm advection aloft will commence Sunday night with light snow expected to develop across the north and snow changing to rain downeast.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Monday will be an unseasonably warm day for early December, with a deep layered southwest flow expected. Highs are expected to climb into the upper 40s to lower 50s across the north and mid 50s central and downeast. Along with the mild temperatures expect increasing moisture ahead of an advancing upper trof and surface cold front. The cold front will cross the region Monday night with the chance for showers as the front crosses the region. It turns much colder behind the front with fair weather expected Tuesday and Tuesday night. Next potential for significant snow will be Wednesday into Thursday.

AVIATION /18Z FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. NEAR TERM: Tdy . Nrn TAF sites MVFR clgs with ocnl MVFR/IFR vsbys in brief sn shwrs mainly this morn. Downeast sites low VFR clgs. Strong WNW to NW winds with mechanical LLWS from the sfc- 1kft agl.

Tngt . Nrn TAF sites MVFR to low VFR clgs with possible flurries. Downeast sites VFR. Strong WNW winds diminishing to lgt to mdt late.

SHORT TERM:

Sun . VFR. W wind around 10 kt.

Sun night-Mon . Widespread MVFR/IFR in snow hanging to rain. SW wind 10 to 20 kt.

Mon night . Widespread MVFR/IFR in rain possibly changing to snow after midnight. W wind 10 to 20 kt becmg NW.

Tue . VFR. Gusty W to NW wind.

MARINE. NEAR TERM: Gale force winds with gusts will transition to WNW by late morn and increase to gusts to arnd 40 kt and cont into the eve hrs across all of our waters before diminishing to SCA range late tngt as the sfc pres grad and winds alf weakens somewhat. Kept close to blended wv guidance for fcst wv hts with wvs composed upwards to 3 groups ranging in pds from 3 to 4 sec with short offshore WNW winds, arnd 6 sec with a group advcg from WSW to ENE, and open Atlc swell of arnd 10 sec advcg from S to N.

SHORT TERM: Winds/seas will generally be below SCA levels Saturday and then increase to SCA levels once again Saturday night and Sunday. Strong SCA conditions and possible Gale Force winds can be expected Sunday night into Monday. Visibility will be reduced at times in snow showers Saturday night and in rain on Monday.
