Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 118 PM EDT Tue Jun 18 2024

SYNOPSIS
High pressure will remain south of the region tonight through Wednesday. A cold front will cross the area Thursday followed by high pressure Friday into Saturday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/
1PM Update: Extended the heat advisory to include western zones today based on observations of heat indices in the lower 90s as of just after noon. Capped PoPs at isolated given the existing cumulus field struggling to develop due to subsidence.

Previous Discussion: High pressure south of the area and a very strong upper level ridge will be channeling warmer and more humid air northeastward into our area today. Partly sunny, hot and humid conditions are expected day. CAPES today are expected to rise to 1000 J/KG according to the GFS and 2000 J/KG on the NAM. This raises the possibility for some scattered to isolated thunderstorms, mainly across the far north. However, strong ridging and a lack of any surface boundaries will mean there are no strong triggers to start storms so widespread activity is not expected. Inland highs should reach around 90 with much cooler air along the coast.

Tonight will be partly cloudy to mostly clear and not as cold as last night with lows near 70 north and 60s Downeast. Some patchy fog will be possible late tonight due to the humidity, especially Downeast near the coast where the marine influence will facilitate condensation.

SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/
Msly to ptly sunny skies are xpctd on Wed when the upper high is strongest, msly capping shwrs/tstms. After very warm low temps and humid conditions Tue Ngt, temps across the Rgn Wed will soar well into the 90s ovr all inland low trrn lctns, with an aftn sea breeze cooling the immediate Downeast coast.
Downsloping winds spcly ovr the N hlf of the FA will result in temps nearly reaching and perhaps even exceeding values seen on this date in 2020. Alf, the upper ridge/high is sig stronger than Jun 19th 2020, but the air mass residence is somewhat in question, with some of the continental drier trop air from the desert SW being entrained by more humid Gulf of Mex tropical air. Subsequently, 925 temps max out at +27 deg C Wed Aftn, about a deg cooler than Jun 19th 2020. However, xtra compression from a stronger upper high could result in higher llvl lapse rates, allowing for temps to reach and perhaps even exceed highs seen on Jun 19th 2020. Current heat hdlns will need to be xpnded across all xcpt coastal zones of our FA for Wed Aftn.

A first initial weak s/wv from Wrn QB tops the upper ridge late in the day and erly Eve Wed with a chc of shwrs and isold tstms msly ovr the NW. Weak cooling alf may weaken the cap enough for this activity, but will hold off on mentioning any enhanced elements for this tm frame. Wed Ngt will be fair and very, very warm with Thu morn lows likely being the warmest of record across the N, if it were not for a cold frontal passage xpctd mid Aftn thru erly Eve Thu.

Models then begin to slowly weaken the upper high ovr New Eng late Wed Ngt into Thu. Still though, the High will remain strong enough to slow the passage of a cold front from Cntrl Can until midday hrs 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. High temps ovr the N were also raised a couple of deg F reflecting a slower cold frontal passage. numerous shwrs and sct tstms will accompany the cold frontal passage, but with only modest cooling alf CAPEs will likely be long and skinny, suggesting lcly heavy downpours, some gusty winds with stronger tstms as well a frequent cld to grnd ltng with tall ETs. The best potential of thunder will be ovr N Cntrl and Cntrl ptns of the FA when the cold front crosses at the heat of the day, capitalizing on a strong theta-e ridge in place ovr this area.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/
Shwrs and tstms will dissipate late Thu Ngt as the cold front moves offshore across the Gulf of ME, with cooler temps by erly Fri Morn for our FA. After msly fair and cooler (but still at to abv normal temps) Fri and Sat, longer range models are in better agreement on holding off on any shwrs til Sun and msly Sun Ngt into Mon as a sig s/wv and sfc low system advcs ESE from the upper Midwest. PoPs durg this tm frame run in the hi chc/low likely range with slgt chc tstms mentioned with likely PoPs for now. High temps Sun and Mon for now look to be near seasonal norms with abv normal lows, but high temps particularly on Mon may need to be lowered if shwrs predominate most of the day.

AVIATION /17Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/
NEAR TERM: VFR conditions are expected today and tonight, except a chance conditions may briefly drop to MVFR or IFR in southern sites due to fog late tonight. Winds will be light southerly today and tonight.

SHORT TO LONG TERM: Wed - Sat...mainly VFR all TAF sites with IFR possible later Wed Ngt into erly Thu Morn at KBHB. Isold late aftn/erly eve shwrs/tstms Nrn TAF sites Wed with numerous 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.

MARINE
NEAR TERM: Winds will be light and seas around 3 to 4 ft today and 3 ft tonight over the offshore waters. Humid air moving up over the waters will likely result in fog and mist, possibly dense at times tonight.

SHORT TO LONG TERM: Winds and wvs will cont to remain below SCA thresholds thru these ptns of the fcst. 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 Wed - Thu Eve as blyr dwpts increase well abv water temps.

CLIMATE
Temperatures will soar under an anomalously upper level high pressure system, challenging record high temperatures and record max minimum temperatures. Multiple days of record breaking temperatures will lead to dangerous heat without a chance for reprieve overnight.
