Synopsis
A warm front will move east of the region tonight. A cold front
will approach Saturday and slowly cross the area Sunday. The
front will stall across the gulf of maine Monday. Low pressure
will move along the front Tuesday into Wednesday.

Near term through Saturday
630 pm update: we xtnded the mention of isold tstms a little
further swrd into the lower penobscot vly and NRN hancock county
til about 8 pm based on latest radar ref imagery. A few taller
tstms have recently indicated some rotation, small hail, and
stronger wind gusts, which we will handle with sps's and, if
necessary wrngs. Tstms should then weaken by mid eve and
dissipate late this eve with the loss of htg and the exiting
of fast movg S WV alf into nb prov.

Otherwise, fcst hrly cld cvr and temps dwpts were adjusted into
the late ngt hrs based on latest Sat imagery and sfc obs trends
with no chgs to ovrngt fcst lows attm.

Prev disc: a warm front will move east of the area early
tonight with increasing humidity levels overnight. Showers and
thunderstorms will occur with the warm front early tonight then
end overnight leaving partly cloudy mostly clear skies across
the forecast area. Satellite imagery indicates an area of low
clouds and fog across the gulf of maine which will reach the
downeast coast tonight. With increasing low level moisture,
patchy fog is also possible across the rest of the region
overnight. Low temperatures tonight will range through the 60s
across the forecast area. Hot and humid conditions will occur
Saturday. High temperatures Saturday will range from the mid 80s
to around 90 north, to 90 to 95 interior downeast with mid 80s
to around 90 along the downeast coast. Have not made any changes
to the heat advisory where heat index values will range from
the upper 90s to around 100 Saturday. Warm temperatures aloft
should help limit convective potential Saturday. However, the
slowly approaching weak cold front and diurnal instability could
support at least isolated afternoon showers thunderstorms
across the region with the better chances across the north and
mountains. Though thunderstorm coverage is expected to be
limited, any storms which do form could be strong.

Short term Saturday night
A cold front is expected to approach and move into the region
Saturday night into Sunday. This system is expected to produce
scattered thunder late Saturday night into Sunday. Some
uncertainty as to intensity of thunder as it will be a function
of the timing of the cold front passage. High pressure is
expected to approach from the northwest Sunday night behind the
cold front. The high will bring clearing to the region Monday.

Long term Sunday through Friday
Low pressure is expected to approach from the southwest Monday
night, then move along the maine coast on Tuesday then into the
maritimes Tuesday night. This system is expected to produce
stratiform rain across the region on Tuesday, spreading further
north than indicated in the previous forecast. An upper level
trough will approach from the west Wednesday and cross our
region on Thursday. The trough is expected to produce showers
into early Friday, especially in the north and higher terrain.

Aviation 00z Saturday through Wednesday
Near term: variable conditions with any showers thunderstorms
early tonight mostly across central and northern areas.

Variable conditions with fog overnight, most extensive along the
downeast coast where ifr lifr conditions are possible. After
any early morning fog dissipates, generallyVFR conditions are
expected Saturday. However, variable conditions are possible
with any isolated afternoon showers thunderstorms.

Short term:
Saturday night...VFR early then scattered thunder gusty winds
south of khul.

Sunday...VFR. Scattered thunder gusty winds from south of khul.

Sunday night... MVFR.

Monday...VFR.

Tuesday... MVFR ifr.

Wednesday...VFR.

Marine
Near term: winds seas will remain below small craft advisory
levels tonight through Saturday. Visibilities will be reduced
in fog tonight through Saturday.

Short term: for winds: have used the NAM to initialize the wind
grids out to Monday then use model blend for long term. Coldest
sea surface temperature extends across our waters with readings
in low 50s. For waves: the primary wave system is expected to be
southerly wind wave through the forecast period. There is also
expected to be a longer period southerly swell system (less than
1 foot 8-9 seconds) for the next 5 days. Will use the near shore
wave model to initialize grids however cold sea surface
temperature combined with warm air temperature is expected to
create high wind bias so will lower wind speed 15 percent below
model numbers. Fog is expected Saturday night into Sunday
morning.

Climate
Near record high temperatures possible Saturday. The record
high temperature in bangor on Saturday, 7 20 is 96f set in 1991,
and we are forecasting 94f. In millinocket, the record high on
7 20 is 93f set in 1991, and we are forecasting 92f. The
records in caribou and houlton appear to be out of reach at this
time.

Near record warm low temperatures are possible Saturday
morning
