Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 936 PM EDT Mon Jun 1 2020

SYNOPSIS. Canadian high pressure will build tonight and slide south of the area Tuesday. A warm front will approach from the southwest Tuesday night, then stall near the coast with a wave of low pressure riding along it on Wednesday. An occluded front crosses the area Wednesday night, followed by weak high pressure building in Thursday and Thursday night. A cold front approaches from the northwest Friday, then slowly crosses the region from Friday night into Saturday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TUESDAY/. 930 PM Update: Latest sat imagery conts to show diminishing cld cvr diminishing ovr the FA as of mid eve as a s/wv ovr Wrn ME moves SSE away from the FA with some cldnss only ovr the Wrn ptn of the FA. With increasing mid lvl subsidence building across our FA from the N, we believe frost-freeze conditions will likely be as widespread as it was late last ngt, which essentially encompassed the whole Rgn. With this in mind, we xtnded frz wrngs to include NE Aroostook county as well as Nrn Somerset/Piscataquis counties. Frost advs have been xtnded to the coast with all beginning at mdngt and ending at 7 am. Winds should decouple a little faster tngt with less wind alf abv the blyr and weaker pres grad winds compared to ystdy attm. This should potentially result in a stronger sfc based invsn by late tngt once skies clr compared to late last ngt despite projected 925 mb temps about 2 to 3 deg C warmer, although fcst mid single digits abv zero deg C is plenty cold enough to get to sfc temps of frzg or below even with relatively modest sfc-based invsn conditions even during short ngts of erly June.

Lastly, fcst hrly sfc temps/dwpts were updated from latest mid eve sfc obs to msly unchgd fcst ovrngt lows from from last update with lows posted at 5 am EDT.

Orgnl Disc: Cumulus and stratocu that formed with the cold upper trough today will gradually dissolve this evening. Winds will also become light as mixing stops. This will lead to good radiational cooling conditions with a shallow inversion forming. Frost is expected in most of the area and will issue another round of rare June frost and freeze headlines. The inversion will be short-lived Tuesday morning. Less moisture for cumulus and warm advection means mostly sunny skies and highs rising back into the 60s . but still cooler than normal. Steep low level lapse rates and a deep mixed layer can be expected again. Lowered dew points below guidance using forecast sounding data. In terms of winds, did increase wind gusts with the mixing, but winds aloft are weaker Tuesday. Reduced highs right along the coast on Tuesday with a southwest wind developing in the afternoon.

SHORT TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/. A northern stream shortwave passes Tuesday night with some isolated to scattered showers associated with its passage. Lows Tuesday night should be near to slightly below normal.

The models then differ on how quickly an 850 hPa front moves through the region Wednesday and Wednesday night (initially pushing somewhat N as a warm front Wednesday, then going S as a cold front Wednesday night). The location and strength of this low level frontal band will determine the location and timing of precipitation Wednesday and Wednesday night. For now it appears the lowest chances for any showers should be over the Crown of Maine both Wednesday and Wednesday night with the best chance from the Central Highlands on south. Given the uncertainty have capped pops at chance for now. Highs on Wednesday should be around 5 degrees below normal and lows Wednesday night within a few degrees of either side of normal.

The region should be under the base of a cutoff low over N Quebec on Thursday. Outside of any lingering showers from the departing frontal band Thursday morning Downeast, it should be dry, with no significant shortwaves progged to round the base of the trough. Highs on Thursday should be near to slightly above normal.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/. The region remains under the base of the closed low Thursday night and once again with no significant shortwave progged over the region, it should remain dry.

A northern stream shortwave should join the closed low by Friday morning over eastern Ontario and help kick out the base as a positively tilted northern stream trough tat tracks to the St Lawrence River Valley by Saturday morning, then slowly across Maine then into the Canadian Maritimes by Sunday. As a result should see some showers, with possibly a rumble of thunder across the North, from Friday through Saturday, with showers possibly lingering into Saturday evening.

The region remains on the backside of a mean trough Sunday and Sunday night. Drying low-mid levels should keep things dry.

Deep layered ridging builds in on Monday, so it should remain dry due to subsidence under the ridge.

Temperatures should be above near to above normal Thursday night, through Saturday. Temperatures should then be below normal on Sunday, then near to slightly above normal on Monday.

AVIATION /00Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. NEAR TERM: VFR conditions continue through the period with less cloud cover and wind for Tuesday.

SHORT TERM: Tuesday Night-Thursday night . VFR, except MVFR possible in any isolated to scattered showers Wednesday and Wednesday night.

Friday-Saturday. MVFR possible with showers. An isolated Thunderstorm is possible for all but Downeast terminals.

MARINE. NEAR TERM: Seas will remain mostly in the 2 to 3 ft range offshore, less in the bays. West winds will shift NWerly tonight . and then back to southwest Tuesday afternoon. Wind speeds and gusts will drop this evening, but pick up again Tuesday afternoon. Winds will remain well below advisory criteria.

SHORT TERM: The pressure gradient should slacken Tuesday night and then remain light through Friday morning. So while there could be some gusts up to 20kt Tuesday evening, winds should otherwise be 10 kt or less from Tuesday night through Friday morning. The pressure gradient then tightens somewhat Friday afternoon through Saturday with gusts up to 20 kt possible, mainly over the coastal ocean waters.

A persistent onshore flow could build seas to SCA levels over the coastal ocean waters from later Friday through Saturday. Otherwise sub-SCA conditions are expected through this time frame.

CLIMATE. Record low temperatures for Tuesday June 2:

Caribou 33/1998 . Houlton 30/1998 . Bangor 32/1945

The dry streak at Bangor continues with today marking the 16th day without more than a trace of precipitation. This is the longest streak since late Sept-early Oct 2017 and is the longest streak in late May into early June since 1950. The dry conditions are expected to persist Tuesday.

CAR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. ME . Freeze Warning from midnight tonight to 7 AM EDT Tuesday for MEZ001>004. Frost Advisory from midnight tonight to 7 AM EDT Tuesday for MEZ005-006-010-011-015>017-029>032. MARINE . None.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
