Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 1035 AM EDT Mon Apr 6 2020

SYNOPSIS. A cold front will move east of the region early this morning. Another cold front will cross the region tonight then stall across the Gulf of Maine Tuesday. Low pressure will track south of the region Wednesday. Another low will cross the region Thursday then exit across the Maritimes Friday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. 1035 AM Update . Have raised winds and wind gusts for today. Good mixing will promote gusts as high as 35 mph at times this afternoon. Otherwise, no significant changes to previous forecast. Still expect increasing clouds this afternoon, mainly from the Katahdin region north. Steep low level lapse rates may generate enough instabilty for an isolated rain/snow shower by late afternoon.

Previous Discussion . Shower chances dissipate into the late evening and overnight hours with some clearing after midnight as temperatures fall towards the lower 20s across the north and around 30 Downeast.

SHORT TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/. Tue looks ptly cldy with lgtr winds as weak Can sfc hi pres begins to crest ovr the FA late in the day followed by a mclr Tue ngt with near calm winds as the sfc crosses the FA with some radiational cooling particularly ovr Nrn vly areas.

Wed will begin fair, then hi/mid cldnss will arrive from the SW durg the aftn as a weakening warm frontal cld/rn band apchs from the SW but remains S of our Rgn crossing ovr the Gulf of ME. This will allow for clrg skies by Wed eve with now looks to be another ngt of lgt wind as sfc hi pres re-asserts itself ovr the FA, with increasing hi cldnss from the W by daybreak Thu morn.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. Sig late week storm possible .

Cldnss will cont to lower and thicken Thu as low pres from S Cntrl Can begins to apch. Precipitation from this system will arrive durg the aftn in the form of sn and rn in the mtns and initially all rn lower trrn further E due to well abv fzg sfc-bl temps. Longer range models are in better agreement about a secondary low forming on the triple (occlusion) point ovr the Gulf of ME well ahead of the weakening primary low ovr SW QB prov, potentially resulting in sig precip rates Thu ngt alg with dynamic cooling alf chgng precip back to all wet sn across the Rgn msly by late eve. Sig accumulating snfl is likely across ptns of the area with mdt to hvy sn rates possible durg the ovrngt hrs before precip becomes shwry and mixed with or chgd to rn later Fri morn and aftn when the triple point low moves E across Nova Scotia. PoPs were raised to categorical late Thu aftn thru much of Thu ngt across the FA. Tngt's 00z dtmnstc GFS has backed off somewhat from high end QPF amts it had ystdy attm with this event and is now more comparable with its own ensm and other long range dtmnstc models, with tngt's 00z ECMWF showing the most nrly track and highest QPF, but not much greater than the GFS. and the 00z CanGem showing more event QPF for Cntrl and Downeast areas.

Cool unsettled early spring conditions with dytm rn shwrs and ngt tm sn shwrs will cont Fri aftn thru Sun as whats left of the upper low from the old primary low crosses the FA, followed by additional s/wvs from the NW later Sat into Sun with not much in the way of overall QPF.

AVIATION /14Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. NEAR TERM: VFR conditions expected through tonight. An isolated snow/rain shower is possible, mainly north of a KHUL-KMLT-KGNR line. Gusty NW winds 10 to 20 kt with G30kt can be expected at times this afternoon. NW winds will decrease to around 10 kt tonight.

SHORT TO LONG TERM: Tuesday through Wednesday night . Generally VFR. Occasional MVFR conditions possible along the Downeast coast Wednesday.

Thursday . VFR early, then lowering to IFR/LIFR with developing rain and snow. Gusty east/southeast winds.

Thursday night . IFR/LIFR with snow and rn to sn ovr Downeast areas. Gusty Friday . MVFR Downeast and IFR Nrn TAF sites with a chance of snow and rain showers.

MARINE. NEAR TERM: Winds/seas will remain below SCA levels through tonight. There may be a few gusts to 25 kt today.

SHORT TO LONG TERM: No hdlns anticipated Tue thru Wed ngt with SE winds increasing Thu to at least SCA to possible low end gales Thu ngt as the sfc low tracks across the Gulf of ME then back to SCA on Fri behind the low. Kept close to blended wv model guidance for fcst wv hts with two spectral wv groups, a short fetch one with a 4 to 6 sec wv pd and a long open Atlc background swell of 12 to 14 sec thru Wed ngt becoming a unified stm wv pd of arnd 10 sec by Thu aftn and contg so into Fri.

FIRE WEATHER. Northwest winds 10 to 20 mph and gusts up to 30 mph, combined with afternoon relative humidity of 20 to 30 percent, will lead to an enhanced fire weather danger across central and Downeast portions of the area, where little or no snow cover exists. After coordination with the Maine State Forest Service, have issued a Special Weather statement in reference to the enhanced fire danger.

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.
