Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 1044 AM EDT Sun Jul 25 2021

SYNOPSIS. A warm front will approach today then cross the area tonight. A cold front will cross the area on Tuesday. High pressure will build over the area Wednesday. Low pressure will approach on Thursday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH MONDAY/. Update . Updated PoPs for weakening precip area ahead of the warm front. Decreased QPF amounts today and this evening. Reduced area for isolated thunderstorms this afternoon to the the far NW border of the state. Increased wind gusts for today. Added isolated thunderstorms after midnight as a strong shortwave and elevated instability arrives in northern zones. Adjusted highs upward for today by a degree or two. Increased lows tonight. Refined fog forecast today into Monday morning and added mention of widespread fog later tonight. Increased cloud cover into Monday morning . which will decrease instability. Maintained thunderstorms in the forecast for Monday afternoon, but not confident in enhanced wording for winds at this point.

Previous Discussion . A warm front will approach today then cross the region tonight. A cold/occluded front then begins to cross the region later tonight. Aloft, an upper level disturbance will cross the region today with a second disturbance then crossing tonight. Isentropic lift in advance of the warm front, along with the upper level disturbance, will support an area of rain which will move east across the forecast area today. Could also have enough elevated instability to support an isolated thunderstorm this afternoon. Will also have areas of fog Downeast this morning. Rain will persist early tonight, then taper to showers overnight. Lingering low level moisture will support areas of fog across the region tonight. High temperatures today will range from the upper 60s to lower 70s across the forecast area. Low temperatures tonight will range from the upper 50s to around 60.

SHORT TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. A weak cold front will push across the area Monday and stall near the coast at the end of the day. Chilly air aloft associated with an upper trough over eastern Canada extending south across our region will result in an unstable atmosphere Monday. Cape forecasts vary from just 200-300 J/KG on the GFS, to over 1500 J/KG on the NAM across the area with the highest capes in the south. The NAM is usually a bit overdone on capes. Thunderstorms will be possible Monday with the instability. Moderately strong winds aloft will mean any storms could produce briefly strong gusty winds. The cooler air aloft could also support hail in any of the storms. The best chance for significant storms will be across south central parts of the region along the stalling frontal boundary which will run from the west central highlands east across south central Penobscot County and into the northern Downeast region. A secondary cold front will approach Monday night and push into the area Tuesday as a new shortwave supports a small low along the front. This will bring another chance for showers and thunderstorms Tuesday moving across from northwest to southeast. Gusty winds and brief heavy downpours will again be possible with a small but vigorous upper trough backing this front. The frontal boundary late in the day will again be focused over south central areas where some locally strong storms will be possible during the afternoon. High pressure should follow Tuesday night bringing clearing from west to east as cooler air from the Eastern Canadian trough flows into the area.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/. High pressure building over on Wednesday should bring a partly to mostly sunny and pleasant day with light winds. High pressure will slide east Wednesday night. The calm air and moist ground may allow some patchy fog to form late at night. A southerly breeze will then increase late at night behind the high pressure system which will be sliding off to the east. Another fast moving shortwave rounding the bottom of the eastern Canadian trough should approach on Thursday supporting low pressure that will approach and cross the area late Thursday. This will likely bring a period of significant rain across the area Thursday especially during the afternoon. The shortwave will slide east and cooler drier air will follow Thursday night into Friday as high pressure builds in. Friday night will likely turn out dry and cool. Yet another shortwave may approach with showers on Saturday.

AVIATION /14Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. NEAR TERM: Across northern areas, VFR conditions this morning will lower to MVFR/IFR levels this afternoon with developing rain. An isolated thunderstorm is also possible this afternoon. IFR/LIFR conditions will then occur tonight with rain tapering to showers. Across Downeast areas, variable conditions will occur early this morning with fog. Conditions then lower to IFR/LIFR levels through the late morning and afternoon with developing rain. An isolated thunderstorm is also possible this afternoon. IFR/LIFR conditions will then occur tonight with rain tapering to showers. Southerly low level wind shear is a concern across the entire region through mid to late morning. South winds 10 to 15 knots with gusts up to around 20 knots today. South winds around 10 knots early tonight, becoming west/southwest late.

SHORT TERM: Monday: VFR except briefly MVFR or IFR in any thunderstorms. SW wind Downeast, NW wind over the north.

Monday night: VFR. W wind.

Tuesday: VFR to MVFR. Chance of showers. SW to NW winds.

Tuesday night: VFR. NW wind.

Wednesday: VFR. Light W wind, becoming SW Downeast late.

Wednesday night: VFR. Light and variable wind becoming S.

Thursday: VFR lowering to MVFR or IFR in rain. S wind.

MARINE. NEAR TERM: Winds/seas will remain below small craft advisory levels today through tonight. Visibilities will be reduced in fog today through tonight. Rain will develop today then persist tonight.

SHORT TERM: Wind and seas are expected to remain below SCA this week. Humid air over the waters may produce areas of fog, especially early in the week. A frontal boundary approaching the waters could bring some thunderstorms late Monday and again late Tuesday.
