Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 1257 AM EDT Mon Apr 6 2020

SYNOPSIS. A cold front will cross the region tonight through early Monday. Another cold front will cross the region Monday night then stall across the Gulf of Maine Tuesday. Low pressure will track south of the region Wednesday. Another low will cross the region Thursday then exit across the Maritimes Friday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TODAY/. 1250 am update . Area of dry air observed via WV imagery is surging across eastern Quebec at this hour. This will continue to track towards northern New England overnight behind a cold front moving through central Maine. Adjusted PoPs to align with current radar as well as temperatures. Remaining rain shower activity is tracking across central Washington County with patchy drizzle trailing. While the front passage will drop temps a few degrees rapidly, some trailing cloud debris and breezy winds will temper just how quickly temperatures decrease overnight.

Prev discussion blo . On Monday, expect the most sunshine to be found across Downeast areas. Across the north, expect a mainly sunny start, followed by increasing clouds by afternoon, as upper level energy rotates around the upper low that will be centered near the New Foundland/Labrador region. Although moisture will be limited, steepening lapse rates will result in mainly cloudy skies Monday afternoon across the North, with scatterd showers possible, especially from the Katahdin region on North. With fairly deep mixed layer, expect Northwest wind gusts to 30 to 35 mph at times Monday afternoon. Highs on Monday will be limited to the low to mid 40s across the north due to cold advection and more in the way of cloud cover, with upper 40s to around 50 for Downeast areas.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. A cold front will move south across the region Monday night through early Tuesday. Expect mostly/partly cloudy skies across northern areas Monday night, along with the slight chance of evening snow/rain showers. Mostly clear/partly cloudy skies are expected Downeast Monday night. The cold front should stall across the Gulf of Maine Tuesday. Aloft, an upper level low will remain over Labrador Tuesday while a disturbance rotating around the low crosses the forecast area. Generally expect partly cloudy skies across the forecast area Tuesday. Could also have a slight chance of snow/rain showers across mostly the north and mountains. High pressure will ridge south across the forecast area Tuesday night, while low pressure tracks east across the Mid Atlantic/southern New England region. Partly cloudy/mostly clear skies are expected across the region Tuesday night. Ridging will persist across the region Wednesday, while the low tracks south of the Gulf of Maine. Generally expect the northern edge of the precipitation shield with the low to remain across the Gulf of Maine, offshore from the Downeast coast. However, uncertainty does still exist and if the precipitation shield is slightly further north there could be a slight chance of rain showers clipping southwest portions of the forecast area in Hancock county. Temperatures will be at near normal, to slightly above normal, levels Tuesday/Wednesday.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/. High pressure will cross the region Wednesday night. Low pressure approaches from the west Thursday, with a secondary low intensifying in the vicinity of the Gulf of Maine late. The secondary low exits across the Maritimes Thursday night, with a trof extending back across the forecast area to the remnants of the primary low. The upper low also crosses the forecast area Thursday night, with the deformation zone extending back across the forecast area. Precipitation should begin in the form of snow or a snow/rain mix early Thursday, then trend toward rain during the afternoon with a warming boundary layer. Colder air wrapping around the exiting low will then allow a transition back to snow Thursday night, with accumulating snow expected. The deformation zone with the upper low will help support snow early Thursday night, with precipitation diminishing overnight. Uncertainty still exists regarding snow accumulations with this system. Temperatures aloft remain cold enough to support snow. The uncertainty is with boundary layer temperatures, how rapidly a transition back to snow occurs and the amount of precipitation remaining once a transition back to snow occurs. The heavier precipitation Thursday night is indicated across central/Downeast portions of the forecast area, with lesser precipitation totals across northern areas. Surface/upper level troffing persist across the region Friday with morning snow/rain showers, afternoon rain showers. An upper level disturbance should bring partly cloudy skies Saturday along with a slight chance of snow and rain showers with precipitation type mostly diurnally driven. Another possible upper level disturbance and surface cold front could keep a chance snow/rain showers Sunday. Near normal, to slightly below normal, level temperatures are expected Thursday/Friday. Near normal level temperatures are expected Saturday/Sunday.

AVIATION /06Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. NEAR TERM: Brief MVFR expected overnight as low cigs associated with front move in through 06z. May see very brief MVFR at BGR but not confident enough to include in forecast at this time. Conditions return to VFR before daybreak but NW winds will gust in excess of 20kts during the afternoon.

SHORT TERM: Monday night through Tuesday . Occasional MVFR conditions possible across the north and mountains with a chance of snow and rain showers. Otherwise, VFR.

Tuesday night through Wednesday night . Generally VFR. Occasional MVFR conditions possible along the Downeast coast Wednesday.

Thursday . VFR early, then lowering to IFR/LIFR with developing rain and snow. Gusty east/southeast winds.

Thursday night . IFR/LIFR with rain transitioning to snow.

Friday . MVFR/IFR with a chance of snow and rain showers.

MARINE. NEAR TERM: Wind/seas will remain below SCA levels tonight through Monday. Visibility may be briefly reduced to 3-5nm in any showers this evening and then unrestricted late tonight through Monday.

SHORT TERM: Conditions below small craft advisory levels Monday night through Wednesday. Visibilities could be reduced in any showers Wednesday.

CAR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. ME . None. MARINE . None.

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.
