Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Gray ME 336 PM EDT Mon Jul 6 2020

SYNOPSIS. Highs pressure over the waters tonight shifts east on Tuesday and settles SE of the maritimes foe Wednesday. Scattered thunderstorms are expected on Wednesday as a front drops out of Quebec. High pressure builds in for the end of the week with the



NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. For the most part it should be a quiet night with mainly clear skies and light winds winds. This will allow temps to fall quickly, and should be the coolest night we've seen in awhile, and will likely see for the next week ahead. Lows range from around 50 in the mtns to uppers to around 60 in srn NH and on the coast. Models aren not in good agreement on whether stratus forms or not tonight, but given how quickly fog/stratus over the Gulf of ME is moving S, will play it down, but if it does happen will likely be late. Do thing that some patch fog is possible is some sots, given the good cooling tonight.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 PM TUESDAY/. Tue looks to be dry, but will likely see strong enuf S pres grad flow that the marine air will fairly well inland, especially into the ME. Also, expecting a fair amount of cirrus thru the day. Highs range from the upper 60s to low 70s in the coast to around 80 inland areas of NH.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/. The week ahead features very hot temperatures with a chance for shower and thunderstorms, a typical July pattern.

Taking a hemispheric view the polar jet has retreated northwards into the Canadian arctic leaving most of the CONUS under strong ridging with just the occasional short wave to disturb it. The most notable portion of the polar view is in fact a large ridge of high pressure over the western Arctic. While notable in its own right for near record setting temperatures in Siberia that's also the feature that will need to break down to allow more typical circumpolar flow and allow our own CONUS ridge to move on at the end of the week.

Starting Wednesday we'll begin to see the surface high build into our area. To make room for it, first we'll need a shortwave dropping south out of Quebec to make way for it. This will likely touch off showers and thunderstorms. Expect the most storm coverage in the mountains where the greatest instability lies. Storm coverage will be widespread across the entire region, however the greatest upper support is to the east, leaving the greatest threat for Severe weather extending through central Maine. In addition to severe weather, forecast soundings suggest storm motion could be fairly slow leading to heavy rain.

As we move into Thursday and Friday high pressure and a very humid airmass takes hold. Guidance continues to put dewpoints into the low 70s across the southern portion of the region, and with even a midpoint of high temperatures in the 90s this will put the heat index near 100 in the Merrimack valley. While Thursday has been trending as the warmest day, feel it is likely that Friday will be just as warm if not hotter as the prolonged flow and inability to cool down or mix overnight will help to keep the humid air around. Thus have gone on the upper edge of guidance for Friday temperatures.

For the weekend, widespread rainfall is expected. A low develops off Cape Hatteras on Thursday and moves up the eastern seaboard. While the exact track may vary the overall consensus is for widespread rainfall and have introduced likely pops for Saturday. While this time period is too far out for exact QPF amounts, the strong southerly flow suggests a potential atmospheric river event with a maxima in rainfall in the foothills of the White mountains.

AVIATION /19Z MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. Short Term . Some radiation fog at almost all terminals tonight, but will likely come in later than previous night. VFR expected Tuesday into Tuesday eve, with some flight restrictions possible later Tue night as rain and low cigs move in.

Long Term . Scattered afternoon thunderstorms may briefly impact all terminals on wednesday. High pressure builds in for the end of the week.

MARINE. Short Term . Seas/winds blo SCA criteria.

Long Term . High pressure will build in for the middle of the week. By the end of the week a low will begin to move up the coast, crossing the waters on Friday night with SCA conditions likely.
