Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 1002 AM EST Thu Feb 20 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will build across the region through tonight. It will then slowly move southeast Friday through Monday. Low pressure will approach from the southwest on Tuesday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. 10 am Update . Will let the wind chill advisory expire. Temperatures will continue to slowly rise just enough to necessitate extending the advisory. Otherwise, other than just some minor tweaks to hrly temps and dew points, no significant changes needed.

On the marine, extended the SCA for the outer waters through 4 PM EST.

Previous Discussion . A mostly sunny but very chilly day set for Thursday. Broad high pressure centered over the Upper Midwest extends light NW to W flow across Maine. Subsidence will keep many clouds at bay. The north may see more cloud coverage with some low to mid level moisture working in during the afternoon. Despite nearly full sun, the cold air mass will win out with 925mb temps struggling to climb above -20C across the north and most of the Central Highlands. This translates to high temperatures in the low to mid single digits above zero, with teens Downeast. However, winds will make it feel like the single digits here.

Aforementioned moisture across the north will lift away after midnight, allowing stronger radiational cooling to take hold as winds are forecast to be lighter. The combination of cool max temps today, clearing skies, and slackening winds will set the stage for a very cold. More widespread lows in the -20s can be expected across the north, with some teens below zero infiltrating to the Upper Penobscot Valley.

SHORT TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/. Fri Should be partly to msly sunny with a WSW breeze and recovery of high temps across FA to the upper teens to lower 20s. Skies will remain fair Fri ngt, but a prevalent WSW breeze and cont'd slow llvl warm advcn will keep ovrngt lows much milder than Thu ngt. Sat thru Sun look to be ptly to msly sunny and much milder with high temps getting at to sig abv frzg with mild ngt tm lows for this tm of season.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. Blended model guidance brings a little more cldnss ovr Nrn ptns of the FA on Mon and cont'd abv avg hi temps. Longer range models appear to be more uncertain with the track of low pres movg ENE from the mid Atlc states for Tue than even ystdy attm. Went with a little higher PoPs across the FA with this event with highest, low likely PoPs ovr Downeast areas. Temps still look mild enough for lgt sn erly Tue morn to mix with rn even across the far N by Tue aftn and chg to rn further S. However, given the uncertainties of track with this low, we will have to wait to get closer to this event to resolve precip type, but it should be noted that CPC's 6-10 day outlook does favor a sig abv avg temp regime arnd the tm of this event. Precip should end as sct sn shwrs Tue ngt as slightly colder air works into the FA behind the low as it moves across the Can Maritimes. Wed looks to be fair with slightly abv avg hi temps as the Rgn will be between low pressure systems, with the next system possibly impacting the Rgn on Thu.

AVIATION /15Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. NEAR TERM: VFR conditions are expected to continue with some SCT clouds over the northern TAF sites. Winds largely out of the west. Gusts around 20 kt will affect much of the forecast terminals today during the afternoon hours, before slackening in the evening and overnight becoming light.

SHORT TO LONG TERM: Fri-Mon . VFR xpctd all TAF sites with lgt to mdt W to SW winds.

MARINE. NEAR TERM: Have extended the SCA for the outer waters through 4 PM EST. The Freezing Spray Advisory remains up until 1 PM EST. Winds/seas should diminish below SCA levels tonight.

SHORT TO LONG TERM: Msly below SCA conditions xpctd thru these ptns of the fcst with a brief SCA surge of WSW winds and seas likely later Fri ngt into Sat, msly ovr our outer MZs. Kept close to blended model wv guidance for fcst wv hts with spectral wv pd groups comprised of a short fetch of 5 to 7 sec and an open Atlc background swell of arnd 10 sec.

CAR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. ME . None. MARINE . Freezing Spray Advisory until 1 PM EST this afternoon for ANZ050>052. Small Craft Advisory until 4 PM EST this afternoon for ANZ050- 051.

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.
