Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Gray ME 628 AM EDT Tue Apr 20 2021

SYNOPSIS. A cold front will pass southeastward across the forecast area today with showers in the north and gusty winds elsewhere this afternoon. Surface low pressure will track northeastward through New England on Wednesday and Wednesday night bringing widespread showers to the region with some snow in the mountains. The highest chance for accumulating snow will be across the higher elevations and far north, where several inches are possible. Gusty northwest winds will be likely as the system pulls away to the north and east on Wednesday night and Thursday. High pressure and mostly tranquil weather will then return for the end of the week and early this weekend before another storm system approaches by Sunday.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. 625 AM Update . Very little change to the going forecast at this time. Early morning fog will continue to lift and clouds will continue to increase from the west. The showers across western NY are moving eastward and our PoPs look to be on track for later this morning.

Previously .

Clear skies and light winds this early Tuesday morning has allowed for areas of dense valley fog. This fog will lift this morning as low level mixing begins to take shape.

A cold front will approach from our west this morning and move across much of the forecast area by early afternoon. Temperatures are expected to warm nicely out ahead of this front pretty quickly this morning. Highs are expected to be in the 60s most locations, with some lower 70s expected on the coastal plain and southern NH.

This front will be moisture starved for the most part, but enough forcing for ascent should allow for a band of showers to pass across northern and eastern zones later this morning into the afternoon hours. A rumble of thunder is not out of the question but will not be the norm.

Winds will become gusty from the west around midday, with the highest gusts expected across southern NH where a few gusts around 30 MPH likely.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 AM WEDNESDAY/. Low pressure will quickly move northeastward from the Ohio Valley tonight. This will aid in stratiform rain overspreading the region from southwest to northeast, mainly after midnight. Highest PoPs have been placed across western and northern zones where the best forcing for ascent will be. The precipitation will likely be in the form of wet snow in the mountains, especially at higher elevations. Have forecasted around an inch of snow in spots there overnight. Some sleet may mix in late as warmer air aloft begins to work in from the south.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. Multi-faceted low pressure system will track out of the Ohio Valley and intensify as it passes over norther New England Wednesday into Thursday. This system will lift a warm front into southern New England Wednesday morning followed by a cold frontal passage Wednesday evening. Subtle changes in the track of the low and the northward extent of the warm front will be important to the weather impacts across our area Wednesday through Thursday morning. North of the warm front and along the northwest quadrant of the low thermal profiles will support wintry precipitation, while south of the warm front, in the warm sector, the atmosphere will attain sufficient instability to support gusty thunderstorms. The system slowly exits towards the Canadian Maritimes Thursday with rain and snow transitions to upslope snow showers in the mountains. Ridging aloft builds in Friday into Saturday for mostly dry weather and a warming trend. Another low pressure system approaches southern New England Sunday for another bout of precipitation.

A warm front will be advancing northward Wednesday morning as low pressure gets organized to our southwest. Ascent along and north of the front will bring snow to the mountains and along the International border with snow mixing with rain in northern valleys. A couples inches of snow are possible along the International Border and higher terrain Wednesday morning before warmer air arrives changing precipitation to rain Wednesday afternoon. South of the warm front temperatures will rise into the 50s to mid 60s across southeast New Hampshire.

Global models are in good agreement with tracking the low center from Albany, NY through central New Hampshire Wednesday afternoon and dragging a cold front through the area Wednesday evening. As mentioned above the northward extent of the warm front will be critical to snow accumulations across the north as well as the amount of instability that can develop ahead of the cold front. Higher resolution CAMs are in good agreement in advancing the warm front to the International Border changing wintry precipitation to rain for a period Wednesday afternoon. This will cut back impacts from wet snow accumulation as the few inches of snow that falls Wednesday morning will melt before rain changes back to snow Wednesday night. Across southern areas periods of rain are expected, although persistent widespread rain will be limited south and east of the mountains as these areas enter the warm sector.

Wednesday afternoon we will watch for the development of convection along and ahead of the cold front. CAMs have been highlighting a cohesive line of thunderstorms with this front over Upstate New York with this line weakening as it enters our area from the west. Convective parameters are meager over our area with MUCAPE between 250 to 500 J/kg over southern New Hampshire and SW Maine so confidence is low that we will see severe thunderstorms, but nevertheless thunder is in the forecast across southern portions of the area.

The surface low will deepen Wednesday night as it tracks towards northern Maine. Cold air will be drawn in on the backside of the system changing rain back to snow across the north with several inches of snow are possible across the higher peaks and the International Border. Storm total snowfall seems impressive with upwards of 6+ inches along the International Border and in the White Mountains, but winter headlines have not been issued with this forecast package as a portion of this snowfall will fall with the warm front that will melt as temperatures warm Wednesday afternoon.

Behind this system west winds will ramp up Thursday with gusts to 40 MPH Thursday afternoon. It will also be markedly cooler Thursday with highs in the low 30s north to low 40s south. The system will be slow to pull away from the area keeping the chances for maintain snow showers going into the afternoon.

The area dries out Friday with ridging aloft building to our west. Temperatures will moderate into the 40s and 50s with 60s expected Saturday as the ridge aloft moves overhead. An upper trough will approach late in the weekend with the potential for a coastal low to track near southern New England bringing another round of precipitation Sunday.

AVIATION /12Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. Short Term . VFR prevails today other than some valley locations early this morning where locally dense fog will exist through about 13z. An area of showers, possibly with an isolated thunderstorm is expected to move across the mountains and foothills of Maine midday through late afternoon and this may bring conditions down to MVFR for a few hours there. Westerly winds gust to near 25 kts this afternoon before backing to the west late in the day.

Rain (mountain snow) will begin to overspread the forecast area around midnight tonight as low pressure approaches from the west. VFR conditions are expected to come down to MVFR by dawn Tuesday.

Long Term . MVFR conditions likely Wednesday with periods of IFR, especially at KLEB and KHIE in steadier RA and SN. Scattered thunderstorms are possible Wednesday afternoon and evening from KLEB to KAUG southward. IFR conditions likely Wednesday night as low pressure passes overhead. Conditions improve Thursday with west winds to 35 kts Thursday afternoon. VFR expected FRiday into Saturday.

MARINE. Short Term . Light winds this morning will turn westerly and gusty this afternoon in association with a cold front. There will likely be gusts up to 25 kt on all waters at some point this afternoon and have gone ahead and issued a sca. Winds will become light tonight.

Long Term . Low pressure tracking over New England will bring SE winds gusting to 30 kts Wednesday afternoon with building seas. A cold front crosses the waters early Thursday morning bring Gale force winds through early Friday morning. Winds and seas relax Friday into Saturday.

FIRE WEATHER. A brief period of elevated fire weather danger is expected today across southern zones as a dry southwest wind develops in association with a passing cold front. RH values are expected to drop below 30 percent this afternoon while winds gust 25 to 30 MPH. Fire weather conditions will dampen on Wednesday as rain enters the region by early morning.

GYX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. ME . None. NH . None. MARINE . Gale Watch from late Wednesday night through Friday morning for ANZ150>154. Small Craft Advisory from 2 PM this afternoon to 8 PM EDT this evening for ANZ150>154.
