SYNOPSIS
A low moves through the area today, followed by another low tonight through early Monday morning. A weak front then crosses the area into early Tuesday. High pressure builds in later Tuesday through Thursday, while a warm front approaches late Thursday night.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/
500mb shortwave is pivoting east of the area this morning bringing an end to isolated and scattered shower activity. A couple more hours of showers expected as noted by the echos on the CBW radar which is associated with the back side of the shortwave. Weak surface ridging expected today which will allow for a mostly dry day with breezy westerly winds 10-20mph and a few higher gusts possible. There will be a lot of clouds but some sunny breaks with more sunshine in the Greater Bangor area to the Downeast coast. Temperatures climb up into the low 50s across the north from Moosehead to Baxter points northward.
Across the Central Highlands and Downeast coast expected mid to upper 50s with Bangor perhaps very close to 60F. Decent downslope mixing over the Central Highlands of Penobscot, Piscataquis and southern Aroostook will allow Minimum RH values to drop into the 35-40% range.

Tonight another piece of 500mb energy transitions eastward through the long wave trof and another weak boundary heads for Maine. This will allow for more scattered showers to develop from west to east through the night. Light winds shift SW ahead of the approaching boundary. Showers taper off from SW to NE through the early morning but still expecting some across the north tomorrow early morning. In the North Woods temperatures in the mid 30s allow for some wet snow flakes to mix in especially in the coldest spots. Temperatures tonight in the wake of the boundary passing expect to bottom out in the mid 30s north with low 40s south.

SHORT TERM /MONDAY THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/
A broad upper level trough continues to sit over eastern Canada and down through the New England states through the first half of the upcoming work week. With this large area of instability, afternoon convective showers become a possibility. Forecast PWATs are expected to approach 0.5 inches in the forecast area, which is above average for this time of the year. Since there remains available moisture and a source of instability, isolated to scattered rain showers are possible each afternoon on Monday and Tuesday. However, the main trigger for these showers will be diurnal heating, so showers are likely to reduce in number or fade out completely each night.

High temperatures through the first half of the work week are expected to rise into the mid 50s, while lows fall into the 30s.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/
A narrow ridge of high pressure will begin to work into the area on Wednesday, reducing the threat for precipitation Wednesday into the day on Thursday. Skies may clear out underneath the subsidence of this high pressure.

Another trough of low pressure will approach from the west Thursday into Friday, bringing the threat for the next round of rain into the area. However, the most recent model trends have been slowing the approach of this low, with a trend towards a stronger ridge of high pressure Wednesday into Thursday. The longer it takes the occluded system to make its way into our area, the greater chance it will have to begin to break down, so the forecast at this time is scattered to numerous rain showers, particularly over the north, closer to the center of the occluded low. This threat for precip could decrease if the high pressure continues to trend stronger, or there could be a better chance for a widespread wetting rain should the ridge of high pressure shift further east prior to the low approaching northern New England.

AVIATION /07Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/
NEAR TERM: VFR/MVFR this morning becoming mainly VFR today. W winds 10-15kt with gusts up to 20kt. Tonight, expect -SHRA and low end VFR or MVFR cigs. SW winds 5-10kt shifting W by 12z tomorrow.

SHORT TERM: Mon - Mon night: Improving to VFR across all terminals. Rain showers possible. W winds 5 to 10 kts.

Tues: VFR across all terminals, though brief MVFR/IFR possible over northern terminals in -SHRA. W winds 5 to 10 kts gusting to 20 kts.

Tues night - Thurs: VFR across all terminals with cigs trending towards SKC. NW winds 5 to 10 kts shifting NE to E on Thurs.

MARINE
NEAR TERM: Small Craft Advisory continues on the Coastal Waters out 25nm for the entire near term. Winds gusting 25-30kt today into this evening. Long period (10sec) SE swells generally 6-9ft today.

Scattered showers and patchy fog may reduce vsby tonight.

SHORT TERM: Seas 5 to 7 ft will continue over the coastal waters into Monday afternoon, before waves decrease below 5 ft and the SCA expires. Seas 2 to 4 ft on the intracoastal waters. Winds will remain below 25 kts through the middle of the week, with gusts occasionally approaching 20 kts in rounds of rain showers through Monday and Tuesday.
