Synopsis for stonington me to merrimack river ma out to 25 nm.. Behind a subtle disturbance late today winds and seas will increase on the outer waters back to small craft conditions. Winds and seas diminish on Sunday ahead of the next storm system that is forecast to pass well west of the waters. This will however bring a round of gusty southwesterly winds that may bring gale force winds to all waters.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 626 AM EST Sat Dec 4 2021

SYNOPSIS. Canadian high pressure will continue to build over the area today. Weak low pres from central Canada will cross the region tonight then exit across the Maritimes Sunday. A warm front from strong low pressure moving northeast from the upper Great Lakes will lift across the region Sunday night into Monday. A strong cold front will cross the region Monday night as the low moves toward northern Quebec. High pressure will cross the region Tuesday. Another low from the Midwest will approach later Wednesday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. 625 AM Update: Skies are about completely clr and winds have managed to drop off, spcly vly areas for some pre-dawn radiational cooling. Subsequently, latest 6 am sfc obs have temps at some lctns below the prev fcst of ovrngt lows. Subsequently, fcst hrly temps were updated into the late morn hrs from these and newly estimated lows posted at 7 am.

Prev Disc: Strong llvl subsidence associated with Can sfc hi pres advcg from QB prov has msly clrd skies across the FA in the pre- dawn hrs which should set the stage for msly sunny skies with much lighter winds, making colder hi temps tdy more tolerable then ystdy's somewhat warmer temps which was accompanied by strong winds.

Clds will be on the increase late tdy and erly eve ahead of a weak clipper s/wv and associated sfc low apchg from Cntrl Can. Initially, lgt sn will be breaking out ovr NW and W Cntrl ptns of the FA from the weakening primary sfc low movg into Ern QB, with another area of lgt sn developing alg the Downeast coast as a weak secondary sfc low develops alg the Downeast coast. Snfl in these two areas where we advertise highest likely PoPs will be arnd an inch with lcly up to 2 inches possible in a low QPF/high sn ratio environment. Over the Lower Penobscot vly, Cntrl, and NE ptns of the FA, lesser fcst QPF of 0.01 to 0.03 inches only justified hi chc PoPs with msly less than an 1 inch accumulation potential. In any event, this is the type of system that lgt sn/sn shwrs may fall from a thin translucent cld cvr, which will not allow for much in the way of nocturnal temp rises inland from the immediate coast.

This fast movg system will exit the FA by daybreak Sun, with at least partial clrg in the pre-dawn hrs. Subsequently, there will be a short window for some radiational cooling before sunrise Sun, making for a tricky fcst of low temps, since with lgt sfc winds, a sig shallow sfc base invsn may have tm to form ovr some areas under decent radiational cooling conditions.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/. Deep layered westerly flow remains across the forecast area on Sunday as surface high slides east across the region. Forecast soundings across the north are showing some steeper lapse rates, with some moisture between H80-H90. Thus expecting a bit more in the way of mixed cloud and sun north, but mainly sunny downeast. Highs on Sunday still expected to be 6 to 8 degrees below daily normals.

Surface high slides out into the open Atlantic to the south of Nova Scotia Sunday night. Upper flow becomes more southwest in response to upper trof approaching from the west, while surface low tracks east across the Great Lakes region later Sunday night. Models still keying on a band of snow developing across far northern areas later Sunday night in association with a warm front. This could produce an inch or two of snow across the north, especially the St. John Valley by daybreak on Monday. Otherwise, expect central and downeast areas to be mainly cloudy but dry. Expect slowly rising temperatures overnight, with increasing clouds and developing southerly flow.

On Monday, deep layered southwest flow is expected in response to an approaching upper trof. Surface low in the vicinity of the upper Great Lakes region at 12Z Monday will intensify as it tracks northeast across Ontario province and into Quebec late Monday afternoon. Any snow across northern areas will change to rain showers later Monday morning, with rain showers expected downeast

Southwest flow ahead of the approaching upper trof and surface cold front will result in an unseasonably warm day on Monday, with highs topping out in the upper 40s to near 50 degrees north and low to mid 50s downeast. Strong H925 low level jet ahead of the approaching front will result in increasing wind later Monday afternoon, especially Downeast. Headlines to address to increasing winds will likley be needed with subsequent forecast packages for portions of the forecast area.

Intensifying surface low lifts across to our northeast Monday night with a strong cold front crossing the region overnight. Expect rain Monday night as the front crosses the region. The concern heading into Tuesday morning is that any standing water from Monday night's rainfall rapidly freezes, as temperatures quickly fall behind the strong cold front.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. Tuesday will be a very cold and blustery day behind the cold front with high temperatures expected to occur early in the day, with steady of slowly falling temperatures expected in the strong cold advection.

High pressure will remain across the region Tuesday night with mainly clear and cold conditions expected. The high will slide east early Wednesday.

Low pressure will move northeast from the Mid Atlantic later Wednesday and then move northeast Wednesday night into Thursday. Still plenty of uncertainty this far out regarding the exact track of the low, but this system could bring accumulating snow to portions of the region later Wednesday into Thursday. High pressure will build back in on Friday.

Temperatures through mid week will be below normal.

AVIATION /12Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. NEAR TERM: Tdy . Mainly VFR xpctd all TAF sites with lgt winds.

Tngt . VFR all TAF sites early eve, then MVFR clgs/vsbys in sct sn shwrs/lgt sn late eve into the late ngt hrs spcly Nrn TAF sites, becmg VFR Downeast late. Intermittent IFR vsbys possible with falling sn possible during the ovrngt hrs. Lgt winds.

SHORT TERM:

Wed . VFR, then MVFR/IFR in developing snow late. NE wind 10 to 15 kt.

MARINE. NEAR TERM: Initially, SCA winds/seas still ongoing ovr our outer MZ waters til mid morn, then all waters below SCA late morn thru late eve. Winds and seas are then xpctd to to increase back ovr SCA thresholds msly ovr the outer MZs late Sat ngt into erly Sun morn. Kept close to blended wv model guidance for fcst wv hts with wvs composed of two spectral groups; a short fetch 4 to 6 sec and a weak open Atlc swell group of arnd 10 sec.

SHORT TERM: SCA conditions are possible Sun. Gale Force winds are expected Monday and Monday night. SCA conditions expected Tue/Wed.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. A period of high astronomical tides will occur from now into Tuesday. The highest astronomical tide will be on Sunday morning, but that is not expected to coincide with any storm surge or significant wave hts. Monday, however, is a different story. A strong southerly flow is expected to generate storm surge and waves could increase towards 10 ft. Therefore, there is potential for coastal flooding and splashover at the Monday high tide near noon.

CAR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. ME . None. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory until 9 AM EST this morning for ANZ050.
