Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 616 AM EDT Mon Mar 30 2020

SYNOPSIS. Low pressure will track south of the area today. An upper level low will remain across the region Tuesday through Thursday. High pressure will build toward the region Friday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. 6:15 AM Update . Reports of snow amounts across the lower elevations over the area range from 1 to 2 inches with a lot of the initial snow melting upon contact. Lowered snow totals a bit and also lowered pops Downeast where precipitation has become very light and spotty. Lowered temps across the north by a degree or two over the region too.

Low pressure will approach from the eastern Great Lakes today as secondary low pressure moves off the southeastern New England coast. Snow of varying intensity will mostly be supported by the upper low approaching from the west. However, a large blocking high over eastern Canada pushing in from the northeast will suppress the snow a bit across the northeastern part of the area. Additional snow accumulations today will range from 1 to 2 inches over the central and northwestern highlands to around a half inch across the eastern part of the area. Snow will gradually become lighter and more intermittent today as the strong blocking high over eastern Canada presses south into the area. The eastern Canadian block will push the secondary low well to the south below Nova Scotia later today into this evening as relatively drier air pushes down from the northeast. The big high pushing in from the north will bring partial clearing tonight across the north while Downeast remains mostly cloudy. A few snow showers may linger across southern areas overnight.

SHORT TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. The region remains under the influence of an upper low Tuesday into Wednesday. A broad upper low in the Gulf of Maine Tuesday morning gets pinched off by strong ridging to the north with an anomalously strong upper ridge centered near 55N 30W, which causes a piece of energy and another upper low to hang back across the southern Gulf of Maine Wednesday.

Tuesday will be a mostly cloudy day with a north flow and nothing more than an isolated rain or snow shower across northern areas. Highs will range from the upper 30s north to the lower 40s Downeast. Moisture wraps back into northern areas from the Maritimes Wednesday afternoon, but with a maritime flow of air and moderation of the low levels rain showers would be favored over snow. The best chance of showers will be to the north of the Katahdin Region. Highs Wednesday will range from around 40 north to the mid 40s Downeast.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/. The strong north Atlantic high breaks down late in the week. A broad upper low in the Gulf of Maine Wed night shifts off to the east slowly late in the week and gets replaced by an upper ridge that builds across the area by Saturday. The upper ridge shifts east by Sunday. Precipitation will continue to back into the region from the Maritimes Wed night and Thu before beginning to dry out Thu night. The influx of Maritime air will lead to mostly rain, although some wet snow could fall at times, especially at night and across the higher terrain. QPF overall looks to be on the light side. Drier weather for Friday and Saturday, although a brief isolated shower will still be possible Friday. The next weather system looks to move in by Sunday with a few rain/snow showers north and rain showers Downeast. Overall, temperatures will be near to a little above average.

AVIATION /10Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. NEAR TERM: Today: IFR, becoming MVFR this afternoon. E wind.

Tonight: MVFR, becoming VFR late tonight. NE Wind.

SHORT TERM: Tue through Thu night . Generally MVFR north, with occasional IFR possible in rain/snow showers. The best chance of IFR will be Wed night into Thu when there will be steadier precipitation at times. MVFR/VFR Downeast with A chance of snow and rain showers. Friday . MVFR early, then becoming VFR.

MARINE. NEAR TERM: A SCA will continue today and tonight for NE wind gusts up to 30 kt. The strongest winds will be over the offshore waters.

SHORT TERM: Small craft advisory conditions are expected Tuesday into Tuesday night with conditions to likely remain below SCA levels Wed. The small craft advisory was extended through Tue in collaboration with WFO Gray. Borderline SCA conditions are possible Thu-Fri.

CAR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. ME . Winter Weather Advisory until noon EDT today for MEZ002-005- 006-010-031. Winter Storm Warning until noon EDT today for MEZ001-003-004. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory until 8 PM EDT Tuesday for ANZ050>052.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
