Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 347 AM EDT Sat Oct 16 2021

SYNOPSIS. A warm front will lift across the region today. A cold front will approach from the west tonight then cross the area early Sunday morning. An upper level low will remain over the region Monday into Tuesday, then move into the Maritimes Wednesday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. The warm front is the primary story for today with rain lifting north across the forecast area tonight . accompanied by a rich flow of low level moisture under the frontal inversion. This will ensure a cloudy day with areas of fog this morning as dew points rise into the lower 60s. Elevated convection is still possible with the warm frontal boundary this afternoon and have maintained mention of isolated thunderstorms. Diffluence aloft is noted this afternoon along with a thermal ridge at the top of the inversion with temps pushing towards 15C. For this evening, a powerful low level jet emerges ahead of the strong cold front later tonight. Wind speeds of 50 to 60 kts are noted in the 925 and 850mb levels. Low level stability decreases slightly ahead of the cold front and some gusts over 30 mph are certainly possible. This will help remove a lot of remaining foliage. The bigger concern is with the cold front itself later in the night when deeper mixing could produce gusts over 40 mph and the risk of a few power outages. Elevated CAPE reaches several hundred J/kg and have continued mention of isolated thunderstorms with the cold front. There's plenty of deep moisture too as PWs surge over 1.5 inches with the cold front. A quick inch of rain looks easily attainable. This could cause some minor issues with drainage due to blockages from fallen leaves. The front itself is rather impressive as 850mb temps plummet from nearly 15C towards 2-3C by Sunday morning. A negatively tilted shortwave will help provide lift and will be aided by the exit region of a strong upper jet.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. Sun morn, a cold frontal rn band will be just reaching the ME/NB border from the W, with rain ending across Cntrl/Downeast areas by midday, and tapering to sct shwrs across the N. This will be the last day for a while with abv normal hi temps, with sig cooler air holding off til the arrival of the upper trof/upper low from QB Sun ngt. This upper trof/low will then hold ovr the FA Mon thru Tue, with sct rn shwrs spcly across the N and sig cooler hi temps, spcly Tue and ovrngt lows apchg seasonal norms by Mon ngt. In fact, it's not out of the question that high trrn abv 1000 msl may be cold enough for mixed rn/sn shwrs late Mon ngt into erly Tue morn, but it should be noted that tngt's dtmnstc 00z GFS was cooler in the 925-850mb layer by a few deg C than the 00z ECMWF (to warm for any sn shwrs).

LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/. The upper low/trof will slowly lift ENE thru the Can Maritimes Tue Ngt and Wed, with slowly improving conditions via dissipating shwrs ovrngt Tue and decreasing cldnss by Wed from SW to NE across the FA. Temps will be near seasonal norms durg this tm. Wed Ngt thru Thu morn looks to be fair attm, and after a cool morn, aftn temps should recover a few deg warmer by Wed aftn ovr Tue aftn. Clds will be on the increase later Thu aftn and ngt ahead of a warm front and sfc low pres advcg ENE from the upper Great Lks. Any precip from this system will likely hold off til late Thu ngt for Wrn ptns of the FA late Thu ngt and on Fri for the rest of the FA with lgt rn totals. Temps may be cld enough ovr the far NW for lgt rn to mix with wet sn at the onset with no accumulation xpctd. Temps will warm quickly durg the day Fri.

AVIATION /06Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. NEAR TERM: LIFR to VLIFR cigs are expected this morning ahead of a warm front. The warm front will cross this afternoon with isolated embedded thunderstorms and an improvement in cigs to IFR. Significant LLWS is expected later this afternoon through this evening with up to 55kt at FL020. The IFR cigs persist this evening and tonight. A cold front with isolated thunderstorms and wind gusts to 40kt crosses later tonight.

SHORT TO LONG TERM: Sun Morn . all TAF sites IFR clgs/vsbys in rn/patchy fog, rising to MVFR clgs in sct shwrs late in the morn. Lgt Winds.

Sun Aftn - Sun Ngt . all TAF sites low VFR to VFR clgs with sct shwrs possible across Nrn sites til erly eve. Lgt winds.

Mon - Tue Eve . MVFR clgs with sct rn shwrs across Nrn TAF sites with low VFR clgs across Downeast sites with isold rn shwrs across mainly durg aftn hrs. Lgt to mdt WNW winds.

Late Tue Ngt - Wed . Low VFR clgs Nrn TAF sites with msly unlmtd VFR conditions Downeast sites. Lgt WNW winds.

MARINE. NEAR TERM: Will keep the SCA through the period. Low level stability is the only limiting factor from upgrading to a gale. Did reduce wind gusts several knots due to expected stability, but can't rule out a few gusts over 35kt with the cold front later tonight.

SHORT TO LONG TERM: SCA wvs will be winding down msly below 5ft by Sun aftn. Aftwrds, no definitive pd of SCA conditions, although wind gusts may apch 25kt attms ovr outer waters Mon thru Tue, something to watch as we near this tm frame. Patchy marine fog will end W to E across the waters behind the cold front Sun morn. Otherwise, went with blended wv model guidance for fcst wv hts thru these ptns of the fcst. Wvs will be msly composed of a single S to N propagating wv group Sun with pds of 4 to 7 sec then mainly two groups Mon onward a very short N to S propagating group o 2 to 4 sec and a very weak open Atlc semi- swell from the SSE of around 8 to 10 sec.
