Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 717 PM EST Tue Dec 10 2019

SYNOPSIS. A cold front crosses the area this evening, with a secondary front crossing Wednesday. High pressure will cross the region Thursday. A warm front will lift north of the region Friday. Low pressure will lift north across Maine Saturday. A cold front will cross the region Sunday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. 715 PM Update: Adjusted the rain coverage given the radar showing steady rainfall from the Bangor and Calais region down to the coast. The latest HRRR and 12Z GEM were handling this area of rain well w/the cold front along the front. This front will be slow to exit the coast as upper flow parallels the sfc boundary. A secondary cold front is moving into northern and western areas bringing some gusty winds and much cold air with it. This boundary is expected to move to the coast overnight aid in pushing the primary front further offshore. Adjustments were made the hrly temps to match then w/the current obs. Rest of the forecast looking ok attm.

Previous Discussion . Steady, tight pressure gradient has been in place overhead, with upper and mid level jet passing over this afternoon. Approaching front from Quebec will move towards northern Maine later this afternoon. Impressive mixing w/ low level lapse rates up to 9 c/km and some surface buoyancy will create the chance for gusty winds during it’s passage this evening and overnight. Winds will increase first across the north this evening, with some slowing of the winds as the front pushes through central Maine and Downeast. Upstream observations show a couple peak gusts to 30kts at higher elevations. Not confident enough winds will be that strong long enough to warrant a Wind Advisory, but have sent a SPS for a heads up.

Tacked on to the SPS is also mention of damp surfaces freezing due to rapidly falling temps with the passage. Temperatures around freezing will be through Central Aroostook by late evening, crashing to the teens by daybreak. All of the CWA is expected to be around or below freezing shortly after midnight.

Rain showers will be present this evening and early tonight, with a conversion to snow showers and light snow later tonight. The north will only see a few flakes associated with the front, but with moisture lagging further south, Downeast and the immediate coast could see light accums. Moisture lingers just off the coast Wednesday, with coastal Downeast picking up 1-2 inches of snow on the fringe of the precip shield.

SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/. An upper level trof will cross the region Wednesday night. The trof will support a weak surface low which will track across northern Maine, drawing a strong cold front across the forecast area. Snow showers, possible snow squalls, will accompany the front with the better chances across the north and mountains. High pressure will build across the region Thursday with decreasing clouds north, mostly clear skies Downeast. High pressure begins to exit across the Maritimes Thursday night, with a developing warm front to the west. Clouds will increase across the forecast area Thursday night, with a chance of snow showers across northern areas in the vicinity of the developing warm front. The warm front begins to lift north Friday. Expect mostly cloudy skies across the region Friday. Could also have a slight chance of snow showers across northern areas with the warm front. Temperatures will be at below normal levels Thursday, with near normal level temperatures Friday.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/. The warm front lifts north of the region Friday night, with intensifying low pressure across the Mid-Atlantic region. Expect rising temperatures across the region Friday night with warm advection. Moisture also begins to expand north in advance of the Mid-Atlantic low. Expect increasing rain chances across Downeast areas Friday night, with a wintry mix across northern areas. The intensifying low lifts north from the Mid-Atlantic region across Maine Saturday. The low will draw warmer air northward. Precipitation will remain in the form of rain Downeast, while transitioning to rain across northern areas. The low will then draw a cold front across the region later Saturday night through early Sunday, though the exact timing is still uncertain. Precipitation will transition back to snow or snow showers following the cold front along with much colder temperatures. Snow showers could linger across mostly the north and mountains along with gusty winds later Sunday into Monday. High pressure builds across the region later Monday with partly cloudy/mostly clear skies. High pressure will cross the region early Tuesday. Low pressure is possible later Tuesday, though the track remains uncertain. Precipitation chances/types later Tuesday will depend on the eventual track. Above normal level temperatures are expected Saturday/Sunday. Below normal level temperatures are expected Monday/Tuesday.

AVIATION /00Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. NEAR TERM: VFR at northern terminals with a wind shift this evening and gusty winds. Period of IFR central and Downeast with rain showers and low ceiling tonight. Rain showers transition to snow in the morning through Wednesday.

SHORT TERM: Wednesday night . Variable conditions with snow showers and possible snow squalls, particularly across the north and mountains.

Thursday . VFR.

Thursday night . VFR early. MVFR/IFR conditions developing overnight. A chance of snow showers across northern areas.

Friday . VFR/MVFR. A slight chance of snow showers across northern areas.

Friday night . Conditions lowering to IFR/LIFR levels with a wintry mix north and rain Downeast.

Saturday . IFR/LIFR. A wintry mix transitioning to rain north, with rain Downeast.

Sunday . IFR/LIFR early. MVFR/IFR during the afternoon, then VFR/MVFR late. Precipitation transitioning back to snow or snow showers following a cold front. Gusty southwest/west winds following the cold front.

MARINE. NEAR TERM: Extended SCA to 18z Wed as waves will remain above SCA even though winds fall below Wed AM.

SHORT TERM: Small craft advisory conditions early Wednesday night, with gale force wind gusts possible late. Gale force winds gusts possible early Thursday, then small craft advisory conditions late.

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.
