Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 927 AM EDT Thu Oct 1 2020

SYNOPSIS. Weak high pressure builds in today. A cold front will slowly approach tonight into Friday. Low pressure will develop along the front and track through the area late Friday into early Saturday. High pressure will build over the region later Saturday through Sunday with another low possibly approaching from the mid-Atlantic states on Monday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. 920 am update . Increased clouds and PoPs in northern Aroostook this afternoon as a few sprinkles are possible ahead of the cold front. Refined the areas of fog and stratus expected tonight in the Downeast region as dewpoints surge. Increased lows tonight slightly due to increasing clouds. Increased clouds, PoPs and QPF on Friday as the low rides up the frontal boundary. Specified moderate rain for much of the area by mid-afternoon. The exception will be Downeast where the least rain will fall with this system.

Previous discussion .

Upper trof axis remains to our west today and tonight. This keeps a west to southwest flow across the region. Expect generally dry weather today. Can't totally rule out a few sprinkles or an isolated shower across the far north and west closer to the upper trof. Otherwise after a mainly sunny start, diurnal afternoon clouds will result in partly sunny skies by afternoon. Although not quite as warm as recent days, high temperatures will still be above normal for this time of year.

A frontal boundary will stall out to the west of the region tonight. Light southerly flow in the low levels ahead of the boundary will likely bring low clouds and patchy fog toward the coast and Downeast Maine late tonight, with partly to mostly cloudy skies elsewhere. Lows tonight will generally range from the mid/upr 40s North and the lower 50s central and Downeast.

SHORT TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/. Fri morning likely to start of sandwiched btwn 2 frontal bndrys with fairly weak winds acrs the entire CWA. Skies wl start off mocldy acrs the nw and the se with mocldy skies in between. A slight chance of rain wl exist acrs the far nw at the start of the pd along the stalled frontal bndry. Broad upr trof rmns back to the west with strong s/wv rounding the base of the trof in the afternoon. At the same time the area wl be in the RRQ of 120+ kt jet streak and wl interact with baroclinic zone to bring widespread rainfall to the area Friday evening. Expecting an additional 1/2 inch of rain over central areas with locally higher amnts possible as mid-level frontogenesis develops over the area as sfc low tracks thru the Gulf of Maine.

Low pressure heads northeast into the Canadian Maritimes Sat morning with NW flow bringing in a cooler and drier airmass to the FA. Highs on Sat wl be in the 50s acrs the north with stratus expected. Expect to see a little more sun over Downeast with downsloping occurring and offshore winds allowing temps to rise into the 60s.

Sat night looks to bring frost once again to nrn areas with Downeast coast rmng in the 40s overnight. High pressure over the area wl result in a fairly dry weekend tho with trof rmng back to our west, cannot rule out an isolated shower with hard-to-time s/wvs skirting thru.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. Active pattern continues into the extended with trof not crossing the area until Mon night. All med range guidance has trended further south with development of coastal low. With upr trof mvs thru may see isold showers acrs the north but strong s/wv now appears to mv off of the mid-Atlantic coast Mon afternoon. Cyclogenesis expected to occur to the south and east of Cape Cod Mon evening and tracks south of the Gulf of Maine. Hv continued with idea of light rain over Downeast Mon afternoon and drg the overnight but confidence much lower on widespread rain fcst to occur drg this time.

Brief ridging is expected for Tue as system departs twd Atlantic Canada and next system heads twd the area for the very end of the period. May see another chance for moderate to heavy rainfall at the tail end of the extended. Temps through the period expected to be around normal values.

AVIATION /13Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. NEAR TERM: VFR all terminals today. VFR tonight at the northern terminals with IFR/LIFR in low cloud and patchy fog KBGR/KBHB. Southwest wind 10 to 15 kt today becoming light tonight.

SHORT TERM: Fri-Fri night . Conditions deteriorate to IFR during the afternoon at all terminals. Light winds into Fri afternoon, becoming N 5kts in the evening.

Sat . VFR Downeast terminals, with MVFR cigs possible north of HUL in the morning. NW 5kts.

Sat night . VFR though patchy fog may exist at PQI/HUL late. Light NW wind.

Sun night-Mon . Mainly VFR. Lgt wind becoming N 5kts in the afternoon.

MARINE. NEAR TERM: A Small Craft Advisory remains in effect for the outer waters through this afternoon, mainly for seas. Winds/seas will remain below SCA levels tonight.
