Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 1225 PM EDT Tue Mar 31 2020

SYNOPSIS. An upper level low will remain across the region through Thursday. High pressure will build across the region later Friday into Saturday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. Update . An upper level low will remain across the region today. A disturbance rotating around the low will move westward across New Brunswick toward eastern Maine this afternoon. Satellite imagery indicates clouds moving westward across New Brunswick and approaching the Maine/New Brunswick border with the upper level disturbance. These clouds will begin to cross northern and eastern portions of the forecast area this afternoon. After a mostly/partly sunny start, clouds will begin to increase across western portions of the forecast area later this afternoon. Could also have isolated snow/rain showers across northern and eastern portions of the forecast area later this afternoon. Afternoon high temperatures will range from the upper 30s to around 40 north, to around 40 to the lower 40s Downeast. Have updated the forecast to adjust for current conditions along with afternoon temperatures and clouds.

Previous Discussion . A northeast flow between low pressure well south of Nova Scotia and a large high over eastern Canada will persist today and tonight. The high to our north combined with the low in the Atlantic will then back some moisture into our area upon northeast winds later today into tonight. This will bring some scattered snow showers, mainly to northern areas and higher elevations, tonight. Otherwise, the sky will become cloudy through tonight as the moisture backs into the region. Snow showers and intermittent light snow may increase in coverage a bit late tonight as more moisture continues to back in from the northeast. However, any accumulations should amount to an inch or less. The best chance for snow showers will be over the north tonight.

SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. A blocking pattern remains in place with an anomalously strong high for early spring across the north Atlantic. There will be a series of upper lows to the south stretching all the way from New England to the coast of Spain.

An upper low across New England Wednesday will only very slowly get absorbed by another low moving off the Virgina coast. By Thursday the upper low will be well south of Nova Scotia with a trough extending back into southwest New England.

Surface high pressure remains well to our north during this time as a storm deepens well to the south of New England. By Thursday a 970 millibar low is expected to be found a few hundred miles to the southeast of Halifax.

The blocking pattern will send relatively mild Maritime air into the region with a series of disturbances to move from east to west across the FA. The best chance of showers Wednesday will extend from Washington County north into Aroostook County with drier weather to the west. Model soundings into Wednesday indicate enough cold air for a rain/snow mix across the north, but QPF looks light Wednesday, and with surface temps above freezing any snow would melt. Highs Wed will remain stuck in the mid to upper 30s north to around 40 degrees Downeast.

There will be a continued advection of milder Maritime air into the area Wednesday night and Thursday, so precipitation during this time will be in the form of rain showers. There could still be a bit of wet snow across the higher terrain in the west during the evening. Lows Wed night will remain just above freezing for most areas. The most widespread showers will likely be later Wed night into Thu as an inverted surface trough rotates around the offshore low. Overall, the QPF does not look to be all that heavy and should be on the order of around one quarter of an inch, but locally a bit more could fall. Given the lack of significant QPF and that highs Wed are expected to be in the low to mid 40s hydro issues are not expected to be a concern aside from some ponding of water on roads.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/. Drier weather is expected Thu night and Fri as high pressure builds into the area from the north and the offshore storm pulls away. A gusty wind will likely continue into Friday along with a lot of clouds. Clearing is expected by Friday night with a good deal of sunshine Saturday. Lows Sat night will drop back into the 20s, and with sunshine and a fairly mild/dry air mass highs Saturday will climb well back into the 40s north, with some low 50s across the southern half of the FA.

The next system begin to approach from the west Sunday, but should remain far enough at bay that at worst there would be an increase in clouds toward evening. The air mass moderates a bit more and highs should be a few degrees warmer than Saturday. Highs may approach 50 in the north with mid 50s interior Downeast/Bangor.

Model spread increases significantly with the approaching system Sunday and the eventual evolution remains uncertain. The GFS brings a weak and disorganized system across the area later Mon night and Tue. The ECMWF and Canadian are faster and have a much stronger system that would spread rain into the region Sun night and Mon, with some wet snow possible across the north and higher terrain. There remains considerable ensemble spread, so forecast confidence remains low and for now will maintain chance PoPs, but will slow down the onset of the PoPs a bit keeping Sunday dry.

AVIATION /16Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. NEAR TERM: Occasional MVFR ceilings will occur across Downeast areas through early afternoon. VFR conditions are expected across northern areas through early afternoon. MVFR conditions, mostly ceilings, will then begin to develop across northern and eastern areas later this afternoon. MVFR/IFR conditions are expected across northern areas tonight, with MVFR conditions Downeast.

SHORT TERM: Wed . MVFR with possible IFR in rain and snow, especially at the Aroostook County terminals.

Wed night into Thu . IFR much of the time in low clouds and rain showers.

Thu night into Fri . MVFR cigs north of HUL with VFR expected at the Downeast terminals with brief MVFR possible.

Fri night & Sat . VFR.

MARINE. NEAR TERM: A Small Craft Advisory remains in effect today through tonight.

SHORT TERM: A small craft advisory is likely, mainly on the coastal waters Wed through early Thu afternoon. A period of gales looks increasingly likely for late Thu afternoon and into Fri with the strongest wind on the coastal waters. For now will add mention of the gales into the Hazardous Weather Outlook.

CAR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. ME . None. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory until 8 AM EDT Wednesday 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.
