Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 404 AM EDT Thu Jul 29 2021

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will move east of the area today as low pressure approaches from the west. Low pressure will cross the area tonight into Friday as it pulls a cold front through. High pressure will build south of the area Saturday. Low pressure will approach on Sunday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. Today will begin clear and chilly with some patchy fog over the rivers and lakes. High pressure will then bring a mostly sunny morning followed by some increasing clouds this afternoon as low pressure approaches from the west. Some light rain may begin to stray into western areas at the end of the day. A trough of low pressure will move in tonight spreading rain into western areas early in the evening and further north and east late in the evening. A rumble of thunder can't be ruled out over some south central areas overnight. Otherwise, this is expected to be a stratiform overrunning rain event. The surface trough will initially be an open wave with generally light rain pushing across the area overnight. Low pressure will begin to get better organized along the coast early Friday morning as jet energy rounding the bottom of the trough streams into western and southern New England. This may begin to make rain a little steadier and heavier initially in southern areas very late tonight into early Friday morning.

SHORT TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. Rain wl be ongoing Fri morning but what area wl see the heaviest by 12z rmns to be seen. 00z guidance left a lot to be desired with regard to initialization thanks to the MCS over the upr midwest tonight. Am not thoroughly convinced that coastal low wl be able to dvlp over the Gulf of Maine Fri morning as models continue to flip- flop with well-defined sfc low over swrn GOM by 12z Friday per latest NAM/EC with a weaker low in the vicinity per GFS/CMC. Eventual movement of MCV tda wl determine whether potential for hvy rain sets up for portions of our FA Fri morning.

Upr lvl trof appears to begin going negative Fri morning with potential for locally hvy rain over sern areas Fri morning bfr main crux of qpf exits northeast into NB. Best location for locally hvy rain looks to be over Washington County in area of coupled jets and if any elevated storms can develop. 0.50-0.75 inches in a 6 hour period, more on the order of 3-4 hrs are possible over this region. This is the area that needs the rainfall less than any other portion of the CWA. Storm total rainfall looks to be between 1-1.25 inches to the south of the I-95 corridor with 0.50-1.00 inches expected elsewhere.

As system exits into the Maritimes over the weekend expect that we wl see showers in nwrly flow as weak disturbances move acrs the region thru Saturday. Area wl experience blo normal temps with highs over the north likely to remain in the 60s and lows in the 40s through the end of the pd.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. A brief break in the wx is expected Sun morning ahead of the next system mvg in fm the west as upr lvl troffing continues. Question centers around how widespread rain wl be drg the day Sunday as majority of guidance indicating Downeast areas wl be most likely to see rainfall Sun aftn and thru the overnight. GFS meanwhile has most potent s/wv tracking thru nrn areas Sun night which warrants keeping likely pops over entire region Sun night. Wl fine-tune chcs and area as we get closer in time.

After a brief break Mon night into Tuesday pattern becomes a little harder to discern when next significant rainfall moves into the area. Subtropical ridge shows signs of strengthening by the middle part of the week with moderating temps expected on Wed.

AVIATION /04Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. NEAR TERM: VFR conditions are expected today into this evening. Conditions will likely lower to MVFR then IFR late tonight as lower clouds and rain move in.

SHORT TERM: Fri-Fri night . IFR/LIFR Fri in heavy rain and embedded tstms on Fri. Improvement to MVFR/VFR possible at BGR and BHB in the evening with northern terminals still seeing IFR restrictions. S winds becoming NW 5-15kts Fri afternoon and gusty into Fri night.

Sat-Sat night . Mainly VFR, though possible MVFR across the north in showers Sat aftn. W 5-10kts and gusty Sat afternoon.

Sun-Mon . MVFR, possible IFR/LIFR in rain. SW 5-10 kts Sun, light S overnight then W Mon.

MARINE. NEAR TERM: Wind and seas should remain below SCA today. Winds will reach SCA in gusts to 25-30 kt overnight in the south wind ahead of the approaching trough of low pressure. Visibilities should be good through this evening but will likely lower in some rain and patchy fog late tonight.

SHORT TERM: SCA possible late Fri night into Sat morning with wind gust marginal around 25kts. Seas increase to 5 kts on the outer waters Sat morning. Rain and possible embedded thunder Fri morning with visibilities reduced in patchy fog. Remainder of the weekend into early next week will be below SCA levels.

CAR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. ME . None. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory from 9 PM this evening to 8 AM EDT Friday for ANZ050>052.
