Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 433 AM EDT Thu Jul 2 2020

SYNOPSIS. A strong cold front will cross the region today and push off the Downeast coast this evening. High pressure will build across the area Friday. Another cold front will cross the area Sunday and will be followed by high pressure Monday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. Current mesoanalysis has sfc low over the Gulf of St. Lawrence with cdfnt extending back to the west. Low stratus and patchy fog has advanced nwrd fm the Gulf of Maine this morning to as far north as a Mars Hill to Dover-Foxcroft line. GOES-16 nighttime microphysics imagery showing vly fog dvlpng to the west and north of the stratus though it appears to be very sparse. Interesting that dense fog has overspread the mid-coast and into inland Maine to our west but has held off for the majority of our areas though immediate coast is reporting vsbys down to near 1/2 mile at Machias.

Cold front drops south thru the morning with latest CAMS showing convection firing after 18z from about a Presque Isle to Moosehead line. Hv leaned twd NAM with mvmnt of front appears that most of nrn Aroostook and Somerset wl be behind front as convection develops. Differential htg wl likely play a role in dvlpmnt of storms as well along with forcing along front. NAM Nest and HRRR brings a broken line of storms thru cntrl areas btwn 18z and 21z. Hv added enhanced wording with this line though 0-6km shear looks to be mis-matched with location of frontal bndry. Pulse-type storms may produce strong wind gusts as well as small hail but not overly impressed with svr potential with this line.

As line approaches the coast expect it wl begin to weaken twd 00z thought cannot rule out an isold strong storm along the immediate coast this evng. North winds wl mv in bhnd fropa with guidance indicating lingering low-lvl moisture wl rmn acrs the region with potential once again for low clouds, along with patchy fog where rain fell.

SHORT TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. The area will be in a west/northwest flow aloft in the wake of the cold front the crosses the region in the near term. A weak area of high pres across the region in the morning will move to the Downeast coast by evening. The most noticeable difference will be much lower dew points, especially across the north, but even all the way to the coast they are expected to drop back into the 50s. There is some question as to just how much sunshine there will be during the day Friday with intervals of clouds and breaks of sun, with likely a bit more in the way of sunshine during the afternoon. Highs will be seasonable and mostly in the 70s, but cooler along the immediate coast. Friday night is expected to be clear to partly cloudy with seasonable lows in the 50s. Saturday will feature a weak surface trough across the area, but with moisture lacking not expecting more than isolated showers and thunderstorms. The air mass moderates a bit, but low level moisture will be lacking so dew points will again remain mostly in the 50s.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. A fairly potent upper level trough and cold front are expected to cross the area Sunday with a decent chance of showers and thunderstorms. There remain some model differences on the amount of QPF that will accompany the frontal passage and upper low. In the wake of this system is looks like a mainly dry/seasonable pattern for Monday into Tuesday as high pressure builds just south of the region later Monday into Monday night and slowly moves off the New England coast Tuesday. The main change to the forecast Monday and into Tuesday was to lower the PoPs as it looks like outside of perhaps a very isolated shower it should be dry. The next frontal system may begin to work into the region by Wednesday which would increase the chances of showers and thunderstorms along with an increase in the dew points.

AVIATION /08Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. NEAR TERM: IFR/LIFR expected at Downeast terminals early in the TAF period. Improvement then expected at BGR by 11z with BHB improving by 15z this morning.

Northern terminals will be VFR throughout the period. FVE, CAR and PQI look to be north of the cold front by the time -tsra can develop with HUL and BGR most likely sites to see -tsra in the afternoon. If terminals experience storms cannot rule out localized MVFR/IFR restrictions but confidence is too low to include anything other than vcts. Potential MVFR cigs develop after 00z tonight at HUL and BGR with IFR cigs likely at BHB toward end of TAF valid time.

SHORT TERM: FRi & Sat: Patchy MVFR ceilings are possible for a time Fri morning at the Aroostook County terminals, otherwise VFR expected Fri and Sat.

Sat night & Sun: MVFR and possible IFR in lower clouds and patchy fog later Sat night into early Sun morning at the Downeast terminals with VFR at the Aroostook County terminals. Local IFR to MVFR and gusty and erratic wind in showers and thunderstorms Sunday afternoon and early evening.

Mon: VFR.

MARINE. NEAR TERM: Visibilities will likely be reduced at times through tonight in fog. Showers and isolated thunderstorms are expected later this afternoon into early evening. Winds and seas will remain below SCA levels through tonight though winds will be gusty near thunderstorms.

SHORT TERM: At this time it looks like conditions will remain below small craft advisory levels through early next week. There could perhaps be some fog later Saturday night into Sunday morning ahead of an approaching cold front.

CLIMATE. June 2020 ended as the warmest on record in Caribou, Maine and also tied as the driest June on record. For more details on the weather this past June across northern and eastern Maine, please check out our climate summary on the news headlines on our web site at weather.gov/car

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

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