Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 612 AM EDT Wed Jun 19 2024

SYNOPSIS
High pressure will remain to our south today. A cold front will cross the area Thursday followed by high pressure on Friday.
Low pressure will approach on Saturday and track north of our area Sunday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/
6:10 AM Update...The sky is mostly clear across the area with low temps early this morning beginning in the low 70s north and 60s south. No significant changes were needed other than some minor adjustments to early morning temps and cloud cover.

Surface high pressure centered to our south combined strong upper level ridging across the area is set up to bring record high temperatures today. We are still looking at highs inland reaching well into the mid 90s, but much cooler along the coast where a seabreeze will set up. Forecast CAPES are projected to reach 1000-2000 J/KG across the area. However, strong capping and a lack of any trigger mechanisms will result in very limited convection. A couple spots may have an isolated thunderstorm this afternoon. The best chance for any thunderstorm to pop up will likely be over the highlands with a slight chance that any storm that does build over the higher elevations drifts east into lower elevations before dissipating. Otherwise, today will be sunny to partly cloudy, very hot and just a bit breezier than Tuesday as surface high pressure continues to slide to our south.

Any stray thunderstorms will dissipate this evening. Otherwise, tonight will be partially moonlit and remaining very warm. The high humidity and a continuing west, southwesterly breeze will prevent much cooling with lows inland expected to be in the mid 70s.

SHORT TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/
Models begin weakening the upper high ovr New Eng Thu. This will allow the passage of a cold front from Cntrl QB late Morn for far Nrn areas and by erly Eve for Downeast areas as a weak flat s/wv tops and suppresses the upper high ovr Srn New Eng and the Mid Atlc states. High temps will be warmest ovr Cntrl and Downeast areas where mid to upper 90s will again be common, with high temps even hot nearly to the beaches of Downeast Maine with with the sfc pres grad a little more off shore. Shwrs with isold to sct tstms will accompany the cold frontal passage, but with only modest cooling alf, CAPEs will likely be long and skinny, with tstms needing the htg of the day durg the aftn hrs to become more numerous, meaning that the best potential of tstms may be ovr Cntrl and Downeast areas where we went with max likely PoPs, with comparatively little if any tstms across the N where we kept max PoPs in the chc range. Enhanced elements for stronger tstms ovr Cntrl/Downeast areas will include lcly heavy downpours, some gusty winds, as well a frequent cld to grnd ltng with tall echo tops.

Remaining shwrs/tstms will slowly exit S of the Downeast coast Thu Ngt , with cooler temps by erly Fri Morn for our FA followed by msly fair and cooler (but still at to abv normal temps) conditions Fri and Sat as Can sfc pres ridges across the Rgn.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/
Longer range models are now a little more progressive with sfc low system advcg ESE from the upper Midwest later Sat Ngt into Sun. PoPs durg this tm frame ramp up from chc shwrs to the likely range where stratiform rn and a slgt chc tstms are mentioned. High temps were lowered Sun a few deg F with more in the way of steady rnfl xpctd, with uncertainty Mon as to whether rn will be stratiform or shwry. For now, high temps remain near seasonal norms with abv normal lows on Mon but may too need be lowered if steady rn predominates most of the day. Rnfl totals between late Sat Ngt and Mon may be sig ovr ptns of the FA, but still to erly to give details as to where. Shwrs this fcst update look to msly end Mon Ngt, leaving msly Fair and comfortably warm conditions on Tue.

AVIATION /10Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/
NEAR TERM: VFR conditions are expected across the area today and tonight with the except of Bar Harbor which may have a bit of fog and mist coming in from the ocean late tonight. Winds SW around 5-10 kt today and 5 kt tonight.

SHORT TO LONG TERM: Thu - Sat...mainly VFR all TAF sites with IFR possible erly Thu Morn at KBHB. Isold late aftn/erly eve shwrs/tstms. Shwrs and sct tstms Thu Aftn and Erly Eve with brief IFR-MVFR clgs/vsbys in hvy downpours and gusty winds. Lgt winds xcpt near tstms.

Sat Ngt - Sun...all TAF sites becmg MVFR/IFR clgs and ocnly vsbys in shwrs/rn. Lgt to mdt SE winds.

MARINE
NEAR TERM: Wind and seas will remain below SCA today and tonight with seas over the offshore waters around 3 ft today and 4 ft tonight. Humid air over the cooler waters will result in fog and mist through tonight which may be dense in some areas.

SHORT TO LONG TERM: Winds and wvs will cont to remain below SCA thresholds Thu thru Sun, although initially close to SCA conditions ovr the outer waters on Thu. Went with a blend of wv model guidance for fcst wv hts. Wvs will be composed of two spectral groups; a shorter 5-7sec pd group and a 10-12sec pd swell group. The potential of oceanic fog conts spcly the outer waters into Thu Morn as blyr dwpts remain abv se sfc temps.

CLIMATE
Temperatures will soar under an anomalously upper level high pressure system, challenging record high temperatures and record max minimum temperatures thru Thu.
