Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 952 AM EST Sun Jan 26 2020

SYNOPSIS. Low pressure will track across Maine this afternoon then slowly moves northeast of the region tonight and Monday. A cold front approaches from the north late Monday, then crosses the area Monday night, followed by high pressure building in through Tuesday night. Another cold front crosses the area Wednesday, with Canadian high pressure building in behind it through Thursday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. 930 AM Update: Added areas of fog in lieu of patchy fog and decreased visibility across the coastal waters. Adjusted temperatures and the ZR/RA line across the north. Cameras along interstate 95 still show some ice, though conditions appear to be improving compared to earlier. Otherwise, no significant changes were made from the previous forecast and temperatures appear to be slowly climbing above freezing across the north. The Gale Warning was transitioned to a SCA for marine zone 50.

Orgnl Disc: Heaviest warm advcn precip will be quickly movg E of the FA erly this morng leaving lgtr precip ovr the Rgn thru most of the rest of the day. Precip type will trend from fzra to rn from S to N across Cntrl and Nrn ptns of the FA this morn, even reaching the St John vly by erly aftn. This will allow us to drop wntr wx advs in turn across Cntrl and NE ptns of the FA this morn and midday. With sfc dwpts xpctd to rise sig abv fzg, we mention patchy fog for now ovr areas xpctd to get rn, but fog cvrg and density could be greater by aftn as sfc winds lower with the passage of the sfc low ovr the area.

Across the NW, its a little trickier, with banded snfl to arrive from Ern QB by eve as the upper low with colder air both at the sfc and alf apchs. This deformation band will then xtnd ewrd to NE ptns of the FA by the ovrngt hrs with lesser snfl, but the consensus of models indicates the greatest ovrngt QPF ovr the NW where we keep the wntr wx adv up to mdngt for now. Saying this, even NW ptns of the FA will have about a 6 hr inactive pd of any sig ice, sleet, or sn accumulation this aftn before more sig snfl begins to arrive very late this aftn.

Cntrl and Downeast areas will remain msly cldy, with rn tapering to sct rn shwrs by aftn then turning back to sct sn shwrs ovrngt as colder air arrives.

SHORT TERM /MONDAY THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/. The main axis of a cutoff low pushes through Monday, bringing isolated to scattered snow showers to the North/rain and snow showers elsewhere. Up to an inch of additional accumulation is possible, Mainly across the North Woods. Highs on Monday should range from the lower 30s North to around 40 near the coast (10-15 degrees above normal).

Isolated snow showers could linger into Monday evening along the western Maine/Canada border, with the passage of a weak shortwave. Otherwise it should be dry with a mostly to partly cloudy sky. Lows Monday night should span from the teens North to mid 20s near the coast (around 15 degrees above normal).

Northern stream shortwave ridging builds over the area Tuesday, then exits to the east Tuesday night, with associated subsidence allowing for gradual clearing as the low levels gradually dry out. Highs on Tuesday should be a few degrees above normal and lows Tuesday night around 5 degrees above normal.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. A closed northern stream 700-500 hPa low passes to the north on Wednesday, with a low level cold push in its wake. While some flurries cannot be ruled out as this feature passes, most likely the low levels will be too dry to support any precipitation, so for now have kept the mention of flurries out of the forecast.

Deep layered ridging builds in Wednesday night-Friday, with its axis sliding to the east Friday night. Subsidence associated with the ridge should be sufficient to keep things dry and relatively cloud free.

There is a range of model solutions for Saturday, for now it appears the the GFS and ICON model are outliers in how fast they develop a coastal low and how close to the mid-Atlantic coast they keep it on Saturday. The ECMWF/Canadian, most ECMWF Ensemble members and quite a few GEFS members support a slower coastal low development on Saturday.

The varying solutions are due to differences in handling a northern stream trough moving across south central Canada on Saturday and how coherent/strong will be shortwave energy advecting out ahead of it. Noting the relatively fast flow aloft expected this week, a weaker/more sheared solution for the shortwave makes more sense, so will treat the GFS/ICON as an outlier.

Based on this, have kept Saturday dry, but do increase cloud cover in the afternoon.

Temperatures should be near to below normal Wednesday and Thursday, then above normal Friday and Saturday.

AVIATION /15Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. NEAR TERM: Tdy - Msly IFR/LIFR conditions in fzra N and rn/patchy fog Downeast late this morning, improving to MVFR Downeast in sct rn shwrs this aftn. LLWS with breezy E/SE sfc winds.

Tngt - IFR Nrn TAF sites with rn or mixed precip chgng to sn this eve and contg into the ovrngt. Cont'd MVFR clgs and ocnl vsby with sct rn shwrs chgng to sn shwrs ovrngt. Lgt N winds.

SHORT TERM: Monday: MVFR or lower likely, with best chance of IFR at northern terminals. Isolated to scattered snow showers (North)/ rain and snow showers (Bangor/Downeast).

Monday night-Tuesday: Gradually becoming VFR from S to N.

Tuesday night-Thursday: VFR.

MARINE. NEAR TERM: The previous Gale Warning has been replaced with an SCA. Reduced visibility is possible in areas of fog this morning and into the afternoon. Kept close to blended model guidance for fcst wv hts.

SHORT TERM: Winds probably will remain below SCA levels on all waters Monday-Thursday. Seas around 4-6 ft could linger over the coastal ocean waters through Monday night, otherwise seas should be below SCA thresholds on all waters through Thursday.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data.
