Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 400 PM EDT Sun Jun 16 2024

SYNOPSIS
High pressure will slide south of the region Monday into Tuesday. High pressure will remain to our south on Wednesday. A cold front will cross the area Thursday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH MONDAY/
A 1025mb high pressure begins to settle south of Maine tonight to near Georges Bank on the southern end of the Gulf of Maine as the 592dam high at 500mb begins to build its ridge over the United States East Coast. Global runs and Hi-Res Cams continue to show a "ridge rider" MCS coming out of Ontario and into Quebec tomorrow morning but significantly weakening. Warmer air aloft will begin advecting northward and moisture increasing aloft with a mid level warm front lifting northeast. High clouds will increase tonight with temperatures falling back into the upper 40s to low 50s areawide. Patchy river valley fog is possible tonight especially across Northern Maine for a few hours before sunrise which is 4:37AM EDT. There remains uncertainty if any bit of the MCS makes it to Maine. If it does... Thunderstorms aren't expected given the stable airmass but a few remaining showers possible into the Moosehead Region, North Woods and Northern Maine by mid morning tomorrow. Tomorrow as the ridge slowly builds east the airmass is slowly warming aloft but the mid level warm front may kick off 1 or 2 showers across the north otherwise a dry day. Southerly winds tomorrow 10-15mph with gusts up to 20mph possible and this keeps the coast cool in the upper 50s at the shoreline, low to mid 60s elsewhere on the Downeast coast. Inland expect upper 60s to low 70s from Bangor region northward to the St. John Valley including the North Woods. In addition to the southerly winds it will be partly sunny tomorrow with more clouds...then "The Heat Is On" below...

SHORT TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/
A warm front will approach the area Monday night and lift through the forecast area through the day on Tuesday. With such a strong high pressure just southeast of the area, a strong marine layer will prevent showers from developing early on near the coast, while showers and storms may form along the surface boundary as it travels further north into the afternoon. Though CAPE values may begin to increase greatly with steepening mid level lapse rates, a strong enough capping inversion and lack of saturation will limit storm intensity.

Increasing stratocu Tuesday night behind the warm front will prevent temperatures from cooling off much, and lows may only fall into the lower 70s across the north to mid to upper 60s Downeast. For the day on Wednesday, southwesterly warm air advection combined with the influence of a strong high pressure to the SE will lead to a rapid increase in temperatures in the warm sector over the state. Mostly clear skies will allow for increased solar radiation at the surface as we approach peak solar angle for the year. Additionally, PWATs will approach 2 inches will result in a humid airmass overhead, and as high temperatures approach the mid to upper 90s across the majority of the forecast area, temperatures will feel like they are approaching 100 to 105 degrees (the heat index).

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/
Unfortunately, there will not be much of a break on Wednesday night, as though skies clear, PWATs will remain near all time record highs around 2 inches, and this humid air mass will not be quick to cool off. SW warm air advection will also continue to funnel warmer air into the region, and lows will only fall into the low to mid 70s through most of the forecast area (aside from the coast, which will remain at least 10 degrees cooler than inland through this event due to the SW winds bringing cooler marine air overhead).

The warm night period will lead into another hot day on Thursday, wit temperatures making a run for the mid to upper 90s once more. That said, the cold front associated with the low lingering over the Hudson Bay will finally begin to push into the forecast area, bringing the next round of showers and storms to the area as well as cooling relief. The timing of this feature remains uncertain at this time, with some guidance bringing it through early Thursday morning and other guidance suggesting later Thursday evening. Based on the strength of the high over Nova Scotia this week, this current forecast is based around a later FROPA timing as the boundary slows near the blocking high pressure.

Since there will be multiple days with near record breaking temperatures and low temperatures around what average HIGH temperatures are this time of the year, the danger from this heat will continue to build through the week and this is likely to be the worst heat outbreak since 2020. Remember to drink plenty of water, limit outdoor activities from late morning through the early evening hours, stay in air conditioned spaces if possible, and never leave children or pets unattended in vehicles.

The heat will break Friday into the weekend, and although conditions are not expected to be quite so oppressive, they could still remain around 5 to 10 degrees above average highs for this time of the year.

AVIATION /19Z SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/
NEAR TERM: VFR SKC conditions this evening becoming FEW-SCT high cigs tonight areawide. W-NW winds gusty will shift S-SW becoming light and at times variable tonight. Tomorrow BKN VFR cigs expected with S winds 10-15kt and gusts at times up to 20kt.

SHORT TERM: Mon - Wed night: VFR across all terminals. Winds SW to W at 5 to 10 kts.

Thurs: VFR early, becoming MVFR from north to south through the day in showers and thunderstorms. Winds WSW 5 to 10 kts, becoming NW around 5 kts behind the showers and storms.

Fri: VFR. A chance for -SHRA but cigs remain VFR. Winds NW at 5 to 10 kts.

MARINE
NEAR TERM: Winds/seas below SCA conditions through the near term. SW winds tonight less than 15kt becoming S generally less than 20kt tomorrow. A few gusts 20-25nm offshore may reach 20-23kt tomorrow at times. Seas 1-3ft tonight becoming 2-3ft tomorrow. Sea surface temperatures from the Downeast Coast out 25nm and east to the Hague Line including Passamaquoddy Bay are in the upper 40s to low 50s.

SHORT TERM: Winds and seas will remain below small craft advisory levels through at least Friday. With warmer air temperatures building in through mid week, there is a chance for areas of dense fog building in mid to late week.

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