Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Gray ME 607 AM EDT Fri Sep 25 2020

SYNOPSIS. A warm front will cross the region today and early tonight. Temperatures and humidity will increase over the weekend with continued rain-free conditions. A pattern change is expected early next week with increasing chances of rain Monday through Wednesday. Cooler air will begin to enter the region late in the week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/.

605 AM . Minor ESTF update to reflect the current mesonet in near term grids.

Prev Disc . At 06z . a weak cold front extended from southwest Maine across southern New Hampshire and into the lower Great Lakes. A 1019 millibar high was centered along the Ontario-Quebec border. GOES infrared imagery showed some patchy low and mid cloud with this boundary across the forecast area at moment. NWS Doppler Radar mosaic was also showing isolated echoes along and north of the frontal boundary. Scattered valley stratus and fog had begun to develop across some of the interior valleys where skies were mainly clear For today. the boundary should stall out shortly before starting its return northward as a warm front later today. We'll continue to see some passing clouds along with sunny periods today There could be a brief spot shower. with the best chance across mountain sections. It'll be another day of above normal temperatures. Highs will be mainly in the 70s with a few 80 degree readings over southern and western interior New Hampshire. Midcoast Maine and the international border will be limited to highs in the mid and upper 60s.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 PM SATURDAY/. The warm front will finally exit to our north tonight. We'll see some valley stratus and fog develop in the predawn hours once again Near the coast. we may also see some marine stratus and fog develop in the light onshore flow. Lows will range from the mid 40s to lower 50s On Saturday. another unseasonably warm day as sunshine and southerly flow boosts temperatures into the 70s and lower 80s. It'll be a bit cooler once again along the maine midcoast with highs limited to the upper 60s in southerly flow.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/. 00Z guidance in better agreement today in terms of the large scale features next week.

Warm air and increased moisture is expected Saturday night and Sunday. Warm air advection will continue during this period with H8 temperatures topping out near +16C on Sunday. With sunshine expect temperatures to quickly climb to the 70s in most areas with lower 80s possible over southernmost New Hampshire. It will continue to be rain-free underneath a large ridge of high pressure in a southwesterly flow.

By Monday, moisture will begin to advect northward from the waters off the Mid Atlantic coastline. The chance for showers will increase during the afternoon and evening periods.

Models remain in slightly better agreement with the 00Z run indicating cyclogenesis over or near the Great Lakes region on Tuesday in response to an approaching upper level trough. This surface low will move poleward, reaching Central Canada by Wednesday morning. This will allow for a slow moving cold front to approach the East Coast during the period Tuesday into Wednesday. Plenty of moisture will ride north from the tropics with precipitable water values approaching 2.0 inches. This will bring our best chance for organized precipitation in a long time. However, guidance suggests less rainfall along and near the Maine and New Hampshire coasts where a slightly more stable layer will be in place. Did not mention any thunder at this time as the atmosphere remains relatively stable during the period.

AVIATION /10Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. Short Term /Through Saturday/ . Lcl IFR in valley stratus and fog vicinity of KLEB and KHIE btw 08 and 12z today and again Saturday. Otw VFR expected.

Long Term . Mainly VFR through the weekend. Increasing SW to southerly winds early next week ahead of a cold front. Restrictions possible in any showers Monday afternoon through Wednesday along and ahead of a slow moving cold front.

MARINE. Short Term /Through Saturday/ . Winds and seas expected to remain below SCA.

Long Term . Relatively quiet over the weekend. Winds and seas will gradually be on the increase early to mid week next week along and ahead of a slow moving cold front.

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

NEAR TERM . Schwibs SHORT TERM . Schwibs LONG TERM . Cannon

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
