Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Gray ME 251 PM EDT Sun Aug 9 2020

SYNOPSIS. Warmer and increasingly humid air will spread across the area through the first half of the new work week with dangerous heat indices possible at some locations. Along with the building humidity will come the chance of a few showers and thunderstorms from time to time. A cold front will cross the area early Thursday . with a bit less heat and humidity to follow for Friday and the start of next weekend.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. Isolated showers and thunderstorms continue to develop from time to time this Sunday afternoon. This should continue until daytime heating wanes. With little shear and poor mid level lapse rates, the main threat will be localized downpours and perhaps a few instances of gusty winds. Chances for showers and thunderstorms increase a bit tonight, mainly after midnight, as a short wave trough moves overhead. Not expecting severe at this time, but heavy downpours will be likely in any deep convection.

Valley fog will likely form again overnight, especially where prolonged clearing can take place this evening.

SHORT TERM /MONDAY THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/. Scattered showers and even a few thunderstorms may be ongoing at the start of the period (Monday morning) as the short wave trough should be centered overhead. These showers will likely continue across central ME and the mountains through much of the day as weak ascent continues there. Therefore, temperatures are expected to be lower there. Elsewhere, heating should take place in the afternoon. However, we'll be the the wake of the short wave trough with little in the way of forcing for ascent to be had. The best chance of an afternoon shower or thunderstorm will probably be on the coastal plain where sfc trof/seabreeze boundaries may provide for enhanced SFC convergence and pooling of richer moisture. Otherwise, mid level lapse rates will be as weak as they get during the summer and this will also aid in limiting coverage.

Southern and some central zones will heat up during the afternoon but at this time heat indices look to remain below heat advisory criteria at this time.

Warm and muggy monday night.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. Trends for the next week remain similar to 24hrs ago with heat and humidity broken by a few potential rounds of showers for the week ahead.

Tuesday if anything the temperatures have trended up slightly as the SWly flow is maintaining both the temperature and moisture. A heat advisory will likely be needed for much of the area, with heat indices in the upper 90s. Excessive Heat (over 105) is not out of the question for the Merrimack valley but not enough of a concern to issue a watch at this point. In addition to the heat, Tuesday looks likely to bring some thunderstorms as a short wave rotates around the trough over southern Quebec through afternoon. Forecast soundings show quite substantial CAPE by afternoon across the mountains as midlevel lapse rates steepen. The surface moisture will not only promote instability but also allow for a substantial difference in thetaE, making gusty winds a threat with any storms that do form. Best forcing is to the north over the St. Lawrence valley in the afternoon but with a favorable environment storms may persist through the evening hours dropping southwards into our region overnight.

Hot and humid conditions will continue on Wednesday. By Wednesday afternoon the best instability will shift to the south across the coastal plain with scattered thunderstorms possible.

For Thursday we finally see high temps drop back out of the 90s as a weak backdoor front looks to push southwest across the area, keeping scattered shower off to our south across Massachusetts.

AVIATION /18Z SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. Short Term /through Monday night/ . VFR with isold MVFR psb in -SHRA/-TSRA today through Monday. Lcl IFR possible once again tonight and early Monday in mainly valley fog.

Long Term . Scattered showers and thunderstorms across the north through Tuesday afternoon may briefly impact all terminals. Also on the coast expect the hot and humid airmass to result in fog for the midcoast east with LIFR possible for RKD and IWI. Further inland, scattered valley fog may also impact some locations. Heat and humidity with scattered showers continues through the day on Wednesday and into Thursday with VFR prevailing.

MARINE. Short Term /Through Monday night/ . Generally expect southwest to south winds 10-15 kt tonight through Monday night with winds going locally onshore Monday as seabreeze develops.

Long Term . Southwesterly flow across the waters, with winds and waves expected to remain below SCA. The warm advection may allow for some fog to develop especially across the eastern portion of the Gulf of Maine where water temps are coolest.
