Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Gray ME 1042 AM EDT Tue Jun 25 2024

SYNOPSIS
Low pressure will move away from the area today allowing for very warm temperatures on a breezy westerly wind. Wednesday will be dry for most of the day as well and continued quite warm.
Low pressure will bring another round of showers and perhaps a few thunderstorms Wednesday night with somewhat cooler and drier air arriving for the remainder of the work week. Another front arrives this weekend with another chance for showers and thunderstorms.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/
1040 AM...Only updating was to fine tune temps and sky based on current obs, but otherwise the small sfc ridge should give up sunny skies all day, with maxes pushing 90F in interior srn NH, although Tds will be lower than yesterday in many spots.

630 AM Update...No changes to the going forecast. Valley fog will burn off early this morning.

Previously...

Low pressure will continue to move away from New New England today with a dry and warm air mass taking its place. Went with a blend of MOS output for highs today which jives with forecast soundings yielding maxes well into the 80s in most areas with a few 90 degree readings possible across southernmost zones. The seabreeze will mainly be relegated to the islands and peninsulas today with a breezy opposing flow. Early morning valley fog across western NH will lift quickly early this morning after sunrise, but could be locally dense beforehand.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 PM WEDNESDAY/
Clouds will increase tonight as a weak WAA regime begins to take shape. Forcing for ascent may be just enough for a few showers overnight, and have handled this with slight chance to low chance PoPs.

Another warm day on Wednesday with westerly downsloping winds in place. However, clouds will increase as a short wave trough and developing warm front approach from the southwest. Cannot rule out a couple of isolated showers or thunderstorms late in the day but at this time it appears the vast majority of the region will remain dry.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/
High Impact Weather Potential: Threat for widespread severe weather is low through the long term forecast. Wednesday evening and night...if approaching surface cold front arrives earlier than currently expected...there would be a severe thunderstorm threat.

--Pattern and Summary--

Unblocked pattern with multiple shortwaves embedded within the northern stream flow indicates a fairly changeable period of weather with strong ensemble guidance agreement on precipitation events Wednesday night and again this weekend. The timing of these events will likely determine what...if any severe weather threat they will pose. Temperatures will be above normal on Wednesday and again ahead of the weekend frontal system...returning to around or just below normal behind these systems. This overall yields a warmer/wetter than normal period.

--Daily Details--

Wednesday Night: Next northern stream shortwave arrives Wednesday night and while the global deterministic/ensemble guidance from the EC and GFS are are in solid agreement that this feature will bring a round of showers and possible thunderstorms as a cold front pushes through the area /with a wave of low pressure potentially forming on the front/ the GGEM ensemble as well as today/s 12Z NAM that are flatter with the front largely coming through dry. While this spread in the ensemble guidance suggests caution going with nearly categorical PoPs over southern areas as shown in the NBM...feel that the pattern overall is one that would support precipitation given modest mid level wave and PWATs in the warm sector 1.5-1.75".
Thus...will continue forecast messaging of likelies. Timing does not favor severe weather potential given a lack of instability
but the kinematics will be there
so any speeding up of the cold front could introduce severe thunderstorm potential. The shortwave does look to move through quickly...which limits the overall hydro threat.

Thursday through Saturday: High pressure builds into the region Thursday as low pressure moves into the Canadian maritimes...moving overhead Friday and then offshore for Saturday. This should provide for a dry end to the week through at least the first half of Saturday. Temperatures fall back towards seasonal norms Thursday...and even a few degrees cooler for Friday with drier Canadian air allowing afternoon dewpoints on Friday to fall into the 40s. Temperatures begin to rebound on Saturday ahead of the next frontal system.

Saturday Night - Sunday: There is rather good ensemble agreement for another frontal passage late Saturday/Saturday night. Current expected timing wouldn/t be conducive to a significant severe weather threat...but residual instability and a rather impressive moisture plume /PWATs push back above 2"/ indicates keeping an eye on this period in later forecast for potential hydro issues. Showers may linger into Sunday with temperatures at or slightly above seasonal norms.

Monday: High pressure builds back into the region to end the forecast period with another push of Canadian air bringing drier and cooler conditions to end the forecast period.

AVIATION /15Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/
Short Term...VFR conditions are expected today after early morning valley fog in western NH burns off early on. Seabreeze should largely be relegated to the islands and peninsulas today but at least KRKD should see a significant onshore component develop later on in the afternoon. VFR tonight and Wednesday.

Long Term...A cold front passing through the region Wednesday night will bring the greatest threat for restrictions in showers and possible thunderstorms
During this period
MVFR/IFR restrictions are possible...with fog also possible by Thursday morning. VFR daytime Thursday-Saturday

MARINE
Short Term...SCA wind gusts and 5 foot seas possible tonight and Wednesday in advance of a cold front. Temperature inversion makes uncertainty a little higher at this time.

Long Term...The next threat for SCAs does not arrive until late Saturday.

GYX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
ME...None.
NH...None.
MARINE...None.
