Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Gray ME 305 PM EDT Mon Jun 24 2024

SYNOPSIS
Showers and thunderstorms will come to an end tonight with the weather turning drier and warmer for Tuesday and Wednesday. Low pressure will bring another round of showers Wednesday night with somewhat cooler and drier air arriving for the remainder of the work week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/
500 mb with weak sfc reflection current over the CWA, but slowly track ESE this afternoon and evening. It has been setting off some nearly stationary convective cells sine this morning, but no signs of lightning yet. Given, they are not very large, they been posing almost no issues, expect for the little cluster near Jay, ME which has put down 1-2” in the last couple hours.
They are also line up roughly W-E along a sfc boundary from the cluster in Jay off to the where the Penobscot river meet Pen Bay. Impacts should be limited but will have to keep an eye anything that hangs a round the same place too often. Also as that system shift to the SE expect the chance of showers to shift a little more SE toward the coast this evening. Winds on the back side will shift N and pick up a bit toward evening, but these should be diminishing after midnight as well. All showers should be done by 04-06Z, with clearing from W-E following. The usual mtn valley may decouple late, which could lead to some fog there, with lows ranging from the low to mid 50s in the mtns, to near 60 in srn NH and on the ME coast.

SHORT TERM /TUESDAY/
High pressure builds in with NW flow Tuesday morning with the ridge cresting over the CWA in the afternoon. This should allow for a mainly sunny and warm day with highs mostly 80-85, although a little in some mountain spots and a little warmer in the more populated corridor of S NH. I think winds slacken off enough in the afternoon that a sea breeze develops, but it will develop late and will be limited to the immediate shoreline.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/

High Impact Weather Potential: Threat for widespread severe weather is low through the long term forecast
Late Wednesday
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--

Tuesday Night - Wednesday: Warm front pushes through the region Tuesday night with decent LLJ push followed by weak warm advection through Wednesday as the mid level flow slowly backs ahead of the next shortwave trough over the Great Lakes. Could see a few showers or a rumble of thunder Tuesday night...with dry and warm conditions to take back over for the day on Wednesday as T8s edge up slightly from those on Tuesday
Thus
upper 80s to lower 90s are likely south of the mountains with more clouds and cooler temperatures aloft keeping highs near 80 to the north. Surface dewpoints will have moved upward into the 60s
so it will feel a bit humid
though these values should fall short of pushing heat indices much above the actual air temperatures.

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 /18Z MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/
Short Term...A period of MVFR is expected at most terminals late this afternoon and this evening as weak sfc boundary move through and shifts winds to the N. These should break up shortly after midnight but before daybreak. Valley fog is possible at possible at both KHIE/KLEB, although it will depend on how quickly each of those clear out. Vfr is expected on Tuesday.

Long Term...VFR Tuesday night and Wednesday. 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 remains up for the open waters E of Casco Bay mainly for seas, but could be some N winds gust to near 25 kt briefly late tonight. Otherwise winds/seas will fall SCA levels on Tuesday.

Long Term...Marginal SCA conditions in southerly winds on Wednesday and Wednesday night ahead of an approaching cold front. The next threat for SCAs does not arrive until late Saturday.



GYX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
ME...None.
NH...None.
MARINE...Small Craft Advisory until 5 AM EDT Tuesday for ANZ150-152.
