Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Gray ME 508 PM EDT Thu Jul 2 2020

SYNOPSIS. Cold front will drop south through the area into tonight with scattered showers and thunderstorms expected through this evening. The front will stall to our southwest Friday with a mostly cloudy and cooler day. Another front will cross the area Sunday bringing a chance of showers and thunderstorms Sunday afternoon. It will then turn increasingly warmer and more humid through the middle of next week.

NEAR TERM /TONIGHT/. 5PM UPDATE . Have updated the forecast to adjust precipitation chances and thunderstorm wording. There's a cold front dropping in from the NNW currently triggering convection in a line along and slightly ahead of it. To the east, a back door front is moving west into eastern Maine but will not arrive here until after the initial front has made it to the coast. Further to the west, some more isolated convection has initiated with assistance from the terrain ahead of the frontal boundary. All of it is moving generally to the south with some stronger updrafts capable of producing large hail and gusty downburst winds. This severe weather threat should be limited to just the next few hours as overall instability weakens considerably as the evening progresses. Still expect the possibility of fog tonight depending on the degree of clearing. Fog will be most likely in areas which see rain this evening.

ORIGINAL DISCUSSION . Convection has started to fire near the international border as the cold front progresses southward through Aroostook County. Expect storms to continue to develop through this evening with strong to severe storms possible until sunset. The overlap of best instability, shear, and forcing continues to be over Maine, where the best chances of severe storms will be. Lapse rates are steepest in the low levels with relatively weak mid-level lapse rates leading to strong winds being the primary threat, although some hail will be possible. PWATS are near 1.3 inches leading to storms producing torrential rain, but with fast moving storms flooding will not be much of threat with low visibility in downpours being the primary concern.

The cold front will continue to progress southwest overnight and then will stall to our southwest by Friday morning. Ongoing convection will transition to scattered showers with the loss of heating after sunset. Dewpoints will drop behind the front overnight across northeastern zones while cooler and drier does not make it to southwestern areas until Friday. This will result in a muggy night across southwest Maine and southern New Hampshire with lows here in the upper 60s to near 70. With lingering moisture across much of the area, fog will have a good chance of developing again overnight.

SHORT TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT/. Friday morning the front will be stalled just to our southwest and will be oriented NW to SE. This will provide a focus for scattered showers to develop as disturbances pass aloft in northwest flow. The best chances for showers will be in southwest New Hampshire into the White Mountains, although much of the day will be mostly dry. Partial clearing is expected from NE to SW into Friday afternoon with highs in the 70s. Friday night will be much cooler than tonight with most places dropping into the 50s.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. 500 mb pattern across NOAM stays unstable with a trend toward troughiness over the NE CONUS and SE Canada. Overall, though, there is a distinct lack of cool air away from the pole, so the trend will be for more summer-like warm air and humid conds with a greater frequency of SHRA/TSRA chances right into next week.

Saturday may start off with a lot of clouds, esecially in the south, but should start to clear out to at least partly sunny in the mountains, and perhaps mostly sunny to tho south. There is a small chance for a SHRA/TSRA in the mtns Sat afternoon, but for the most part Saturday will be dry. Will still be in NE flow, but that will be weakening, so will likely be warmer inland mostly in the mid- upper, but flow along the coast will just shift from NE to SE. 70s, with highs in the upper 60s to lower 70s. But it should be comfortable with Tds in the 50s to around 60. Sat night will see clearing and cool conds with lows mainly in the 50s.

On Sunday, a weak 500 mb wave passes across NE ME and will bring a chance for SHRA/TSRA again in the afternoon, although chance look better in the N and E zones. Highs will be a little warmer than Saturday, generally in the upper 70s to mid 80s, except in the low 70s right on the coast.

Mon-Wed will feature building ridging over the NE CONUS and increased warm and moist air moving in from the SW. So each will become progressively warmer and more humid. with temps well into the 80s and low 90s by Wed, and Tds approaching 70. The next best chc of showers/storms will also be Wed.

AVIATION /21Z THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. Short Term . Scattered SHRA and TSRA will be possible through sunset with KAUG having the best chance of seeing TSRA. Low cigs will bring MVFR to KCON and KMHT by morning with IFR expected overnight at remaining terminals in fog and low cigs. Conditions will improve Friday morning with overcast skies expected for most through mid-day.

Long Term . Mainly VFR Sat- Mon. Tempo Flight restrictions in TSRA possible Sunday afternoon, and in over vly fog at KLEB/KHIE at night.

MARINE. Short Term . Winds/seas stay below SCA criteria Sat-Tue.

Long Term . Cold front drops south through the area this evening with scattered SHRA and isolated TSRA. Areas of fog are possible overnight with east to northeast winds increasing to 25 kts behind the front Friday morning. Seas will also build to 5 ft by mid-day Friday with a SCA in effect into Friday afternoon.

GYX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. ME . None. NH . None. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory from 4 AM to 4 PM EDT Friday for ANZ150- 152-154.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
