Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 917 PM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

SYNOPSIS
A weak cold front crosses the region tonight. High pressure then builds down from Canada through Thursday night. This high then slowly slides to the east, while a frontal system gradually approaches from the west Friday, then crosses the area Saturday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TUESDAY/
9:10 PM Update...A few showers are lingering right along the Downeast coast so had to carry scattered showers for a while longer into the evening. Otherwise, forecast remains on track.
Meanwhile, watching a small but vigorous looking shortwave approaching from James Bay Canada. Mesoscale models are not showing much shower activity moving in with it, but as it approaches toward dawn there could but some spotty rain or wet snow showers over the far north.

Upper level low pressure will remain north of Maine tonight through Tuesday, while a series of disturbances rotate around the low. One of the disturbances is currently exiting across the Maritimes. Another disturbance will cross the region overnight, with another disturbance crossing the region Tuesday.
At the surface, a cold front will cross the region tonight through early Tuesday. Expect isolated/scattered rain showers across the region with the exiting disturbance early tonight.
Isolated to scattered rain/snow showers are then expected across northern areas late tonight. Otherwise, expect partly/mostly cloudy skies across northern areas tonight, with partly cloudy/mostly clear skies Downeast. Expect partlymostly cloudy skies along with isolated rain showers across northern areas Tuesday, possibly also isolated snow showers in the morning.
Across Downeast areas Tuesday expect a mostly sunny morning then a partly sunny afternoon. Northwest winds will gust up to 20 to 25 mph Tuesday. Low temperatures tonight will range from the lower to mid 30s north, to the mid to upper 30s Downeast. High temperatures Tuesday will range from the mid to upper 40s north, to the mid to upper 50s Downeast.

SHORT TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/
The region will be on the backside of a gradually filling closed low over the Canadian Maritimes as it slowly exits to the east Tuesday night through Wednesday night.

Other than possibly some lingering light rain or snow showers across the North early Tuesday evening with an exiting shortwave going around the base of the closed low, it should be dry. This will be due to the bulk, if not all, of the significant forcing remains over Canada and dry air continuing to build in over the low to mid levels. This will result in gradual decreasing cloud cover from SW to NE, though with the upper level cold pool slow to exit, could see an increase in cloud cover in the afternoon across the North due with some instabilty driven stratocu.

Lows Tuesday night should be near normal, mainly from the upper 20s to mid 30s. Highs on Wednesday should be near to slightly above normal, from around 50 to the mid 50s. With the sky expected to be mainly clear to clear Wednesday night, and light winds, have undercut guidance towards the 25th percentile of guidance. Lows should be near to slightly below normal.

Deep layered ridging builds in on Thursday with associated subsidence keeping things dry and relatively cloud free. Highs on Thursday should be around 5 degrees above normal.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/
Deep layered ridging persists over the region Thursday night, so it should be dry as a result.

The medium range guidance has come into better agreement for the system Friday into the weekend. It appears the ridge axis should slide to the east during the day on Friday, allowing for an increase in cloud cover, especially over western zones in the afternoon. Given the amplified pattern in the northern stream in particular, its not surprising that the 12z guidance is suggesting that precipitation could end up holding off through the day on Friday. For now, do have slight chance pops over far western zones. For now run with chance pops Friday night through Saturday night, as the northern stream closed low should be fairly slow to transit to the north through Saturday night.
It should be showery (very much on and off - not a continuous rainfall) with a surface occlusion passing, with the showers probably exiting to the east late Saturday afternoon and evening.

The region remains over a developing full latitude trough centered mainly east of the Appalachians Sunday and Monday.
With drier air returning at the low to mid levels, it should be dry though. Slight chance pops on Sunday reflect a degree of uncertainty in how quickly the initial upper low exits to the NE.

Temperatures should be near to slightly above normal Thursday night through Monday, with the exception of noticeably above normal on Friday night.

AVIATION /01Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/
NEAR TERM: Across northern areas tonight, VFR early then VFR/MVFR overnight. Isolated rain showers this evening, then isolated to scattered rain/snow showers overnight. Generally VFR across northern areas Tuesday, though occasional MVFR possible with any showers. Across Downeast areas, generally VFR tonight through Tuesday. However, local MVFR also possible with any showers early tonight. Southwest/west winds 5 to 10 knots tonight. West/northwest winds 10 to 15 knots with gusts up to 20 to 25 knots Tuesday.

SHORT TERM: Tuesday night-Friday: VFR, with the possible exception of a brief period of MVFR early at northern terminals Tuesday evening. NW winds G15-20KT possible Tuesday evening.

Friday night-Saturday: VFR, with periods of MVFR or lower possible in any showers. W-WNW winds G15-20KT possible Saturday.

MARINE
NEAR TERM: A Small Craft Advisory remains in effect for much of the waters, with the exception of the intra-coastal waters, through 8 PM this evening due to seas. Conditions then below small craft advisory levels on all the waters through the remainder of the night and Tuesday. Isolated/scattered showers this evening through early morning.

SHORT TERM: Sub-SCA conditions are forecast Tuesday night through Saturday. Other than gusts and seas just under SCA levels Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, winds and seas should be well below SCA limits.
