Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 1115 PM EDT Mon Jun 17 2024

SYNOPSIS
High pressure will stall south of the region and remain in place through Wednesday. A cold front will cross the area Thursday and stall south of the area by Friday. Another area of low pressure approaches this weekend.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TUESDAY/
11:14 PM Update...Low clouds cover the western highlands and parts of Downeast with a clear sky elsewhere. Adjusted sky cover to reflect this, and lowered temps a degrees or two where a clear sky has allowed cooling.

Previous Discussion...
Tonight the mid level warm front over the area continues to drift Northeast into New Brunswick which will allow for some clearing. 1027mb surface high pressure drifts south of Nova Scotia as a strengthening 500mb high to around 593-594dam drifts NE into the Mid Atlantic states. Temperatures tonight will be much warmer than the last few nights as 925-850mb temperatures begin to warm as the ridge advects warmer air northeastward. Expect temps to fall back into the mid to upper 50s across the North Woods, St. John Valley, Moosehead Region south to Bangor and the Hancock County coast. To the east a little cooler in Washington County with low to mid 50s for the morning lows. Partly to mostly cloudy tonight with perhaps a few showers especially closer to the coastline near Eastport.
Additionally, with the increasing moisture in the boundary layer and warming air expect a few areas of patchy fog in the river valleys by daybreak.

Tomorrow, dew points will be rapidly increasing in the morning hours approaching very humid to oppressive conditions by midday and be very noticeable. Light south-southwest winds develop in the morning and generally be less than 10mph. Tomorrow will turn hot, hazy and humid with 850mb temps increasing to +18.5C to +19.C across the CWA This will result with partly to mostly sunny skies with air temperatures reaching the upper 80s to low 90s across much of Northern Maine, Central Highlands into interior Downeast. The hot spots look to be the Greater Bangor area, Millinocket area to Houlton to Caribou to eastern St. John Valley. A weak seabreeze develops along the Downeast coast with upper 60s to mid 70s at the shoreline with low to mid 80s along the Route 1 corridor just inland from the coast with upper 80s along Route 9. Dew points will top out in the upper 60s to low 70s across the entire area by afternoon. This will result in heat index values climbing into the mid 90s to perhaps upper 90s. Confidence has increased that this will impact areas along the I-95 corridor from Newport to Bangor northeastward to Houlton then north along Route 1 into NE Aroostook County. Given this increased confidence have hoisted a Heat Advisory and it is a slam dunk heat indices will be hot on Wednesday have opted to run the advisory through 00z Thu. Heat indices will be higher on Wednesday and noted below in the Short Term. Tomorrow it will be important for those outside to drink plenty of fluids, wear light colors and fitting clothes, sunscreen and take frequent breaks. Additionally, its good idea to check on your neighbors without AC and the elderly. For more heat & heat safety information visit www.weather.gov/car/heat.

Additionally, thunderstorms will be possible tomorrow especially across the Moosehead Region northward to eastern St. John Valley. Uncertainty exists on just how many storms can fire so kept POPs confined to isolated and scattered. Interesting setup for tomorrow given there is still some weak relatively flat shortwave riding the edge of the ridge that will pass through Maine in the afternoon. 500mb heights gradually increase but across northern areas still a little bit of a cool pocket aloft.
SBCAPE will increase with several models suggesting 2000-3000j/kg especially in northern areas. PWATs will rapidly increase to between 1.7 and 1.9 inches which is above the 90th percentile. There isn't a lot of shear tomorrow with Sfc-6km shear generally less than 30kts. Lapse rates if well mixed will be steep in the low levels and modest in the mid levels. This appears to be a high cape, low shear with weak forcing setup to feature potentially a few stronger robust storms. Uncertainty does exist but if any storms do develop they could produce gusty winds (DCAPE 800-900) and heavy rainfall...Hail will be limited with the warmer air aloft and much higher 0C and -20C levels.
Opted to added enhanced wording for mainly northern and northeast Aroostook County tomorrow.

SHORT TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/
Heat will continue to increase on Wednesday as heights continue to rise and the center of the 500mb high moves from the Mid- Atlantic into southern New England. Model 925mb temperatures around 26-27C will yield potential for surface temperatures near all time records in the middle to upper 90s. The most significant uncertainty is with dew points, which could drop during the day with mixing of slightly drier air aloft. Areas that are heavily forested and near moisture sources will see less dew point decreases, and thus a higher max heat index. Max heat indices could exceed 105 on Wednesday afternoon, particularly across the Penobscot Valley and an upgrade to Excessive Heat Warning may be required for some zones as confidence increases. Expansion of the existing heat advisory to most of the rest of the area is also anticipated with future forecaster updates. There is a small (10 percent) chance of a thunderstorm during the day Wednesday as a weak shortwave moves over the northern edge of the ridge. Subsidence and warm air aloft should limit most of this activity, but trends will need to be monitored. Fog is possible along the coast both Tuesday night and Wednesday night, with lowering chances by Thursday as winds shift offshore.

By Thursday high to mid level clouds from convection to the west will move across northern Maine. This will help to steepen mid level lapse rates and facilitate development of scattered showers and thunderstorms ahead of a cold front during the afternoon. Slightly cooler temperatures in the upper 80s to lower 90s are anticipated across the north, while southern portions of the forecast area see temperatures similar to Wednesday. Along the coast, winds shifting west to west- northwest should repel the sea breeze closer to the coast, allowing very hot heat indices to extend closer to the coast compared to Tuesday and Wednesday. Thunderstorms across northern and central areas could bring very heavy rainfall and gusty winds. West to east oriented boundaries, such as the cold front and pre-frontal trough, could produce localized flooding given the Corfidi vectors, relatively skinny CAPE, and very high precipitable water (PWAT) values near 1.8 to 2 inches.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/
A cold front will move across the area Thursday night, bringing additional showers and thunderstorms overnight. Friday will be much cooler but still above normal with the cold front slowing just south of the area. A few showers or thunderstorms will remain possible across the southern part of the area along the boundary. High pressure builds towards the area for Saturday with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s and mainly dry conditions. The stalled front south of the area will begin to lift back north as a warm front late Saturday into Sunday. There are differences in guidance on the timing, but chances of showers and thunderstorms steadily increase by Sunday and maximize on Monday.

AVIATION /03Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/
NEAR TERM: BKN-OVC VFR cigs tonight as winds become light and variable. BCFG possible at PQI but confidence low for the TAFs.
Tomorrow, northern sites VFR with potential VCSH/VCTS especially for PQI, CAR and FVE. FEW-SCT MVFR tonight at BHB with possible BR. Otherwise, dry tomorrow at BHB & BGR. Areawide winds shift S-SSW at 10-15kt tomorrow.

SHORT TERM: Tuesday night to Friday...VFR. MVFR/IFR possible at coastal airports with fog Tuesday night and Wednesday night.
Brief MVFR/IFR and gusty winds are also possible in scattered showers and thunderstorms Thursday afternoon and evening. Light SW winds Tuesday night to Wednesday night, shifting W Thursday and NW Thursday night into Friday.

Saturday: VFR. Light NW winds.

Sunday: VFR with MVFR also possible in showers and isolated thunderstorms. Light S winds.

MARINE
NEAR TERM: Winds/seas below SCA conditions through tomorrow afternoon. Winds may approach briefly 25kt this evening in eastern areas near the Hague Line. Seas generally 2-4ft through tomorrow. Patchy fog bank will develop late tonight across the waters and last into the day tomorrow that may reduce vsby.

SHORT TERM: Winds and seas will remain below advisory thresholds through the period. Mist and fog are possible at times, particularly Tuesday night through Thursday night.

CLIMATE
Temperatures will soar under an anomalously upper level high pressure system, challenging record high temperatures and record max minimum temperatures. Multiple days of record breaking temperatures will lead to dangerous heat without a chance for reprieve overnight.
