Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 117 PM EDT Sat Jul 4 2020

SYNOPSIS. A surface trough will push south across the region this afternoon and will be followed by a cold front Sunday. High pressure will build across the region later Monday into Tuesday. A warm front will cross the region early Wednesday, with a cold front approaching late.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. 105 PM Update: showers and tstms setting up along a line just s of Presque Isle. Some cells are firing near Bridgewater and n of Ludlow in SE Aroostook. The latest meso-analysis showed a theta-E ridge across the region w/dewpoints around 60F. Cold front is just n of the area and slowly dropping s. Movement of the cells was to the sse. Gusty winds and brief heavy rainfall possible. Lapse rates are not that impressive and shear is marginal for anything too strong. More showers/storms will set up during the afternoon and drift sse as the front slides se. Decided to stay w/general wording w/the convection into the afternoon. Further n, drier dewpoints in the 40s and lower 50s.

Some adjustments were done to the converge given the latest radar and what the analysis depicted. Therefore, pops were removed from Northern Piscataquis and NE Aroostook County. Temps needed adjustments upward given that some sites are already AOA 80F. Caribou has hit 83F w/a dewpoint of 45! So, it also dry out there.

Previous discussion: A few showers may linger well into the evening Downeast although thunder chances should diminish by around sunset. Highs today will be near 80F for most inland areas, but cooler along the coast. Lows tonight are expected to be seasonable and in the 50s with lower clouds and patchy fog along the coast that may creep inland across the Downeast Region after midnight.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. An upper trof and surface cold front will begin to cross the region on Sunday. Expect showers and thunderstorms to develop during Sunday afternoon and continue into Sunday evening. At time, it appears cloud cover will limit surface based CAPE, despite the presence of decent shear environment. Therefore, the overall severe threat looks low, but a few stronger storms can't be totally ruled out. The front will move offshore Sunday evening, but with the upper level and surface trof still across the area, the chance for showers and few thunderstorms will continue into Sunday night. High pressure will start to build in for Monday with drier weather and near seasonal temperatures.

LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/. Moderating temperatures can be expected through the long term. Upper level ridging begins to build in Monday night through mid week. A warm front will cross the region mid week with increasing instability and the chance for showers and thunderstorms. The upper level ridge will continue to build across the region through late next week with temperatures rising to above normal levels along with increasing humidity. Temperatures by late next week will likely make a run toward the 90 degree mark in some areas.

AVIATION /18Z SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. NEAR TERM: The day will start with LIFR at BHB and BGR in low clouds and fog with conditions to improve to VFR by late morning to early afternoon. Conditons may again lower to IFR after midnight tonight in low clouds/fog. A shorter period of IFR possible this morning as far north as HUL in low clouds with conditions to improve to VFR by late morning. VFR expected today and tonight from PQI north to FVE. Scattered thunderstorms are possible this afternoon from the central highlands to southeast Aroostook County with brief gusty wind and MVFR conditions.

SHORT TERM: Sun . IFR likely early Sun mrng in low clouds and patchy fog, except LIFR possible early Sun in low ceilings and areas of fog. Conditions will improve to MVFR and the VFR by afternoon with sct -shra/-tsra expected.

Sun Night . MVFR/IFR in sct -shra/-tsra during the evening, then improving to VFR later Sunday night.

Mon thru Tue . VFR.

Wed . VFR. Possible MVFR during the afternoon in sct -shra/-tsra.

MARINE. NEAR TERM: The wind and seas will remain below small craft advisory levels through tonight. Patchy fog is expected over the waters this morning and again tonight.

SHORT TERM: Wind/seas will remain below SCA levels through the middle of next week. Visibility will likely be reduced to 1 to 3 NM at times in patchy fog and showers Sunday and Sunday night.

CAR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. ME . Beach Hazards Statement through Sunday evening for MEZ029-030. MARINE . None.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
