Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 107 AM EST Sun Jan 17 2021

SYNOPSIS. Low pressure will lift north across the area overnight then continue north through eastern Canada Sunday into Monday. High pressure will build south of the area Tuesday. Weak weather disturbances will cross the area Wednesday and again late Thursday night into Friday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH SUNDAY/. 1 AM Update: Cancelled the Winter Weather Advisory for MEZ003>006-010 as temps are slowly warming and steady precip has ended, especially across the western zns(MEZ003-004-010). Some light precip in the form of snow/sleet and rain occurring in Nrn Penobscot and SE Aroostook County. Temps were warming in these areas and should continue rise over the next several hrs. Further n, kept the Advisory in place through 4 AM as radar showed steady precip in the form of snow/sleet. The latest RAP/LAPS sounding confirm this w/the warm layer aloft. Could see an additional inch or so in NW and NE Aroostook County overnight before steadier snow lifts into New Brunswick.

Previous discussion: The weak gradient and calming air in the low center will allow some fog to form in Downeast and central areas late tonight and possibly up across the north after midnight. The low center will reconsolidate over the Gulf of St. Lawrence on Sunday. However, a hang back trough extending west across the northern part of our region back into the old low center will provide convergence for some snow showers over the north during the day on Sunday. An additional inch or two of snow may fall in far northern areas in snow showers on Sunday. As the low pulls together and continues north, an increasing gradient behind it will bring increasing gusty west winds from south to north over the region on Sunday.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/. The low pressure system slowly moves out of the region to the NNE by Sunday night. An area of warm air behind the low should keep the temperatures above normal for the night while keeping the chance of snow showers through the North woods and St Johns Valley. Winds should continue to be breezy with no chance of blowing snow due to the high moisture content. By Monday, a short wave embedded in the cold front should continue the chance of flurries, but due to the dry air, we will see little to no accumulation. As the shortwave moves out of the region to the NNE, winds should shift to the WNW, bringing cold air advection into the region. This should clear out the skies and drop temperatures into the single digits in the N and teens in the S Monday night. Though skies should be rather clear for Tuesday, the temperatures should remain below average.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/. The lingering shortwave to the NE should keep the cold air advection coming into the area. As Tuesday night falls, the clearer skies should drop the temperatures even further to below zero across the N. A shortwave is expected to pass to our south on Wednesday and Thursday, keeping a NW flow and cold temps. The majority of the moisture associated with the wave remains to the south, however, can't rule out a chance of snow showers or flurries from thursday night into Friday.

The next system is expected to move through later in the week with little certainty on significant precip.

AVIATION /06Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. NEAR TERM: Tonight: IFR to MVFR with easing wind overnight. Mixed snow, sleet, and freezing rain north and rain Downeast, then some fog Downeast late this evening and fog over the north after midnight. Southeast wind shear across the area early tonight.

Sunday: IFR north, IFR to MVFR Downeast. Increasing WSW wind from south to north.

SHORT TERM: Sunday night: IFR to MVFR clgs north, MVFR trending VFR Downeast. Gusty W winds.

Monday: IFR to MVFR north. MVFR Downeast. Gusty W winds.

Monday night: MVFR north, MVFR to VFR Downeast. Gusty W winds.

Tuesday: MVFR to VFR north, VFR Downeast. Gusty W winds.

Tuesday night: MVFR. Light NW winds.

Wednesday: MVFR, becoming VFR late. Gusty NW winds.

Wednesday night: VFR. Gusty NW winds

Thursday: VFR to MVFR. Gusty W winds

MARINE. NEAR TERM: Have cancelled the storm warnings and replaced with gales through Sunday. The wind will ease for a time overnight, but gales are expected during the day Sunday.

SHORT TERM: Gales are forecast to continue through Sunday night, falling to SCA levels Monday morning. Wave heights slowly fall to 3 to 5 ft through Monday night, however gusts to 25 kts may keep SCA conditions locked in through Tuesday night. Winds and seas should decrease through Wednesday, but pick back up to SCA conditions into Wednesday night and Thursday.

CAR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. ME . Winter Weather Advisory until 4 AM EST early this morning for MEZ001-002. MARINE . Gale Warning until 7 PM EST this evening for ANZ050>052.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
