Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 927 AM EDT Thu Jul 16 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will crest over the area today. A warm front will approach tonight, then cross the region Friday. High pressure will build across the region Saturday into Sunday. A cold front will cross the region Monday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. 0930 AM Update . Continued to refine cloud cover forecast along southeastern border area as stratocu advects eastward into the state. Also added mention of patchy fog for the Downeast region later tonight.

Previous discussion . High pressure cresting over the region will bring a calm and mostly clear morning with patchy fog in some valleys. Today will then begin mostly sunny though some thin high clouds spilling over the top of the shortwave ridge may stray into the north. Surface high pressure will slide to the east this afternoon allowing a light southerly breeze to pick up in the afternoon. Clouds may begin to increase in the west late today. Clouds will increase tonight ahead of an approaching warm front and some showers may begin to stray into western areas as the front approaches. A stray thunderstorm is possible in far western areas as warmer, more humid air advects north beneath the cooler air aloft.

SHORT TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. The warm front will cross the region Friday, with an upper level disturbance approaching late. Shower chances will increase early Friday. Showers, most numerous across northern/central areas, will then persist Friday afternoon into the evening. Could also have enough elevated instability to support a chance of afternoon and evening thunderstorms. The upper level disturbance, along with a surface trof, will cross the region Friday night. Expect a chance of showers across the region Friday night, though chances will decrease overnight. Otherwise, expect mostly cloudy skies early then partly/mostly cloudy skies late. Upper level ridging builds toward the region Saturday. However, a disturbance moving southeast in advance of the ridge could cross the region. The disturbance, along with diurnal heating, will support the chance of an afternoon and evening shower or thunderstorm across northern areas with a slight chance Downeast. Any showers/thunderstorms will end Saturday evening with the loss of diurnal heating, leaving partly cloudy skies across the forecast area overnight. Warm humid conditions are expected Saturday. The warm humid air across the cooler waters of the Gulf of Maine will support low clouds and fog across the Gulf of Maine and along the Downeast coast Saturday through Saturday night, with the low clouds and fog moving inland during the overnight and early morning hours. Temperatures will be at below normal levels Friday, with above normal level temperatures Saturday.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. Upper level ridging crosses the region Sunday. Instability with diurnal heating and abundant moisture will support a chance of afternoon and evening showers/thunderstorms Sunday, with the better chances across the north and mountains. A cold front will approach Sunday night then cross the region Monday, though the exact timing is still uncertain. Showers/thunderstorms will occur in advance of the front. The front should stall across the southern Gulf of Maine Monday night into Tuesday. Shower/thunderstorm chances will decrease Monday night in the wake of the cold front leaving partly cloudy skies across the forecast area. Generally expect partly cloudy skies Tuesday, with only the slight chance of a shower. The stalled front could lift back to the north Wednesday with a chance of showers. Warm humid conditions will persist Sunday through Monday. The warm humid air across the cooler waters of the Gulf of Maine, will support persistent low clouds and fog across the Gulf of Maine and along the Downeast coast Sunday through Monday in advance of the cold front, with the low clouds and fog moving inland during the overnight and early morning hours. Temperatures will be at above normal levels Sunday through Tuesday, with near normal level temperatures Wednesday.

AVIATION /14Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. NEAR TERM: Today: Chance of patchy fog early. Otherwise VFR. Calm in the morning. Light S wind in the afternoon.

Tonight: VFR, possibly lowering to MVFR Downeast toward morning. Light S wind.

SHORT TERM: Friday through Friday night . Generally MVFR/IFR across much of the region. LIFR possible along the Downeast coast. Showers, most numerous across northern and central areas. Could also have the chance of an afternoon/evening thunderstorm.

Saturday through Sunday . Variable conditions with any mostly diurnal showers and thunderstorms, most numerous across northern and central areas. Also variable conditions, IFR/LIFR, with low clouds and fog from the overnight through early morning hours. Low clouds and fog most persistent along the Downeast coast. Otherwise, VFR.

Sunday night . Increasing shower/thunderstorm chances in advance of an approaching cold front, particularly across northern and central areas. Variable conditions, MVFR/IFR, with any showers and thunderstorms. Also variable conditions, IFR/LIFR, with possible low clouds and fog.

Monday . Variable conditions with showers and thunderstorms in advance of a cold front crossing the region. Also variable conditions, IFR/LIFR, with low clouds and fog most persistent along the Downeast coast.

MARINE. NEAR TERM: Wind and seas will be below SCA today and tonight. Vsbys should be good.

SHORT TERM: Winds/seas will remain below small craft advisory levels Friday through Saturday night. Visibilities will be reduced in fog Friday night through Saturday night. Will also have a chance of afternoon and evening showers/thunderstorms Friday.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
