Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 911 PM EDT Sat Jul 11 2020

SYNOPSIS. Low pressure will track northwest of the region overnight. A cold front will cross the region Sunday followed by upper level low pressure early next week slowly exiting the region to the east Wednesday into Thursday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH SUNDAY/. 9:11 pm update: Area radars and lightning data show one thunderstorm moving across far western Aroostook County. There are a couple of isolated showers upstream of the area in southwest Maine. The main update was to lower the PoPs across the southwest 2/3s of the FA based on the latest radar trends. The Bar Harbor AWOS is not showing any reduction in visibility, but web cameras along the coast where showing areas of dense fog along the coast around the time of sunset.

Previous discussion: Low pressure will track northwest of the region overnight. Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms will persist into the evening then diminish with the loss of diurnal heating. A cold front and upper level disturbance will then approach overnight. Mostly cloudy skies are expected overnight along with isolated to scattered showers, with the better chances across northern areas. Fog is also expected overnight, most extensive Downeast. The cold front will begin to cross the region Sunday, while the upper level disturbance crosses northern Maine. Shower chances will increase Sunday morning. Support from the upper level disturbance and cold front, abundant moisture and diurnal heating will then lead to the development of thunderstorms Sunday afternoon. The most extensive showers/thunderstorms Sunday afternoon are expected across northern and central portions of the forecast area, with lesser chances Downeast. North and west of a line from Dover- Foxcroft to Millinocket to Houlton, strong storms are possible producing gusty winds and hail along with heavy downpours. South and east of that line, a marine layer will provide a more stable environment. Humid conditions will persist through Sunday. Low temperatures tonight will range from the mid to upper 60s across much of the forecast area, with lower to mid 60s along the Downeast coast. High temperatures Sunday will range from the upper 70s to lower 80s across much of the forecast area, with upper 60s to mid 70s along the Downeast coast.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/. A slow moving longwave trough will remain over the Great Lakes Sunday night into Monday, keeping the forecast area within an area of warm and moist southwest flow aloft. A weak cold front Sunday evening will lower dew points into the upper 50s to low 60s mainly across northern Maine. A shortwave will round the base of the longwave trough on Monday, leading to another round of showers and isolated thunderstorms. The risk for severe weather will be lower given poor mid level lapse rates and lower surface dew points contributing to lower CAPE/instability values. Another weak cold front will cross into northern Maine from near due north Monday evening, ushering in cooler air for Tuesday. The 12z GFS has come more into line with the rest of guidance in showing a slower solution with a closed off low at 500mb Tuesday. This aligns with the GEFS and European ensembles and implies a wetter solution, particularly Downeast, with a corresponding surface low developing over the Gulf of Maine. PoPs have been increased during this time frame.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/. Surface and upper level ridging will build in Tuesday night through Wednesday night, leading to dry and mostly clear conditions. Thursday into the end of the week, the upper level ridge is forecast to remain in place, but increasing moisture and instability will cause diurnal convective cloud cover, showers, and thunderstorms to return. A couple embedded shortwaves along the periphery of the ridge may also clip the area and enhance convection, but there is still considerable disagreement at this range regarding their timing and location. The aforementioned ridging will favor somewhat above normal temperatures beginning Thursday or Friday, but there are no strong signals for significantly above normal temperatures through the end of the forecast period.

AVIATION /01Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. NEAR TERM: Generally expect VFR/MVFR conditions across much of the region early tonight, with IFR/LIFR conditions along the Downeast coast with low clouds and fog. Low level wind shear is also a concern across the region this evening into the early morning hours. IFR/LIFR conditions then develop across the entire forecast area overnight along with still a chance of showers. IFR/LIFR conditions will persist early Sunday, with generally MVFR conditions during the afternoon though IFR conditions could linger along the Downeast coast. Showers will occur Sunday, along with afternoon thunderstorms. The most extensive showers and thunderstorms will occur across northern areas Sunday afternoon where thunderstorms could produce gusty winds and hail.

SHORT TERM: Sunday night . IFR near BHB with fog and low clouds. Mainly VFR elsewhere with light WSW winds.

Monday . VFR with light W winds. Briefly lower categories possible in showers.

Monday night into Tuesday . VFR north. MVFR south with rain and low clouds. Light winds.

Tuesday night to Thursday . VFR with a light to modest NNW breeze.

MARINE. NEAR TERM: A Small Craft Advisory remains in effect tonight through Sunday, for seas with a south swell. Visibilities will be reduced in areas of dense fog tonight through Sunday morning. Isolated showers are also possible through the early morning hours, then again later Sunday afternoon.

SHORT TERM: While winds and seas will begin to decrease Sunday night, small craft conditions are still anticipated over the outer waters through at least Monday morning. Winds and seas drop below small craft criteria Monday afternoon or Monday night and will continue to decrease through Wednesday night as high pressure builds in. Coverage of fog will decrease by Tuesday morning.

CAR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. ME . Dense Fog Advisory until 7 AM EDT Sunday for MEZ029-030. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory until 8 AM EDT Monday for ANZ050>052.

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.
