Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 119 PM EST Thu Dec 12 2019

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will build south of the area today. A warm front will lift north of the area Friday. Low pressure will lift north across Maine Saturday. A cold front will cross the region Sunday. High pressure will build toward the region later Monday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. 120 PM Update . Temps continue to rebound nicely across Downeast into the lower to mid-20s, while the north remains cool in the teens. Winds are slowly relaxing, but some mixing this morning has kept them breezy.

Prev Discussion . A few snow showers have accompanied the Arctic cold front overnight. Drier air will be pushing into the area today as high pressure builds to our southwest. However, some isolated flurries are possible in the band of converging air downeast from the Laurentian mountains today, but any snow showers be light and spotty. Otherwise, today will be blustery and cold as the high pushes Arctic air across the region. The air will become more tranquil this afternoon with the high building nearby to the south. The return flow behind the high will lift a warm front north of the region tonight, ahead of a low in the western Great Lakes. This will bring increasing clouds across mainly western and northern areas from late today into tonight. Some patchy warm advection light snow is possible over far northwestern areas tonight. Otherwise, the north will become overcast with Downeast becoming mostly cloudy as a south to southeasterly breeze increases behind the high.

SHORT TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. High pressure will exit through the Canadian Maritimes on Friday. A warm front will develop across Northern areas early Friday and then move north of the region later Friday. A few snow showers will develop in the vicinity of the warm front as it lifts to the north of the region, mainly across northern areas early Friday. Moisture continues to increase across the region later Friday and Friday night as low pressure slowly begins to lift north toward the region from the Mid-Atlantic region. Southerly winds will result in rising temperatures Friday night. Precipitation will begin in the form of snow across Northern areas Friday night with snow or rain mixed downeast, with precipitation persisting into Saturday morning. There could be some minor snow accumulation across Northern areas by early Saturday morning. Continued warm advection will change any mixed precipitation to all rain early Saturday. The potential is there for locally heavy rainfall on Saturday, as a low level jet transports abundant moisture westward across the region. Temperatures will be above normal through the period.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/. The low will continue to lift north of the region Saturday night with rain persisting along with above normal nighttime temperatures Saturday night. The low will lift across the Gulf of Saint Lawrence and toward Labrador late Sunday, with a cold front crossing the region later Sunday. Rain on Sunday will taper to snow showers later Sunday into Sunday evening as the cold front crosses the region. Much colder air will follow for Sunday night and Monday on gusty Northwest winds. Monday will be blustery and cold with a few northern flurries. Another low will approach the area Tuesday, although uncertainty still exists with regard to the exact track of the low. This system could bring some snow to the area on Tuesday. The low will move east of the region Tuesday night and Wednesday with mainly dry but cold weather expected.

AVIATION /18Z THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. NEAR TERM: Today: VFR. Gusty west wind this morning, diminishing wind this afternoon.

Tonight: VFR, possibly lowering to MVFR over the far north. Light south wind.

SHORT TERM: Fri - Fri Night . MVFR in lowering ceilings and light snow showers.

Sat thru Sun . Widespread IFR conditions expected in rain and gusty South to Southeast winds Sat and Sat night, with gusty Northwest winds expected on Sunday.

Mon . VFR and gusty Northwest winds.

MARINE. NEAR TERM: A gale warning for the offshore waters and SCA for the intracoastal waters will continue through mid morning. Winds will diminish this afternoon into this evening as high pressure builds nearby to the south.

SHORT TERM: Winds will begin to increase to SCA levels Friday night and Saturday, and then possibly to Gale Force levels later in the weekend. Visibility will decrease to 1 to 3 NM in rain later Saturday and into Sunday.

CAR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. ME . None. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory until 5 PM EST this afternoon for ANZ050>052.

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.
