Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 935 PM EST Wed Jan 27 2021

SYNOPSIS. Low pressure will track south of the region tonight into Friday, with a trof extending back towards the coast. High pressure will build toward the region Saturday, then cross the region Sunday. Low pressure will begin to approach from the south later Monday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH THURSDAY/. 930 PM Update: Fcst hrly temps/dwpts updated into the late ngt hrs based on latest trends seen in sfc obs. Otherwise, we noted lgt ref returns just W of the Rgn ovr SW ME slowly diminishing with tm. Prev stated, the main challenge will be the potential of very lgt sn and/or fzdz ovr spcly Wrn ptns of the FA late tngt into erly Thu morn. No chgs attm to PoPs with ovrngt lows raised about a deg or two across the North based on temps slow to fall ovr this area.

Prev Disc: Weak mid level ridging will build across the region tonight. The forecast soundings are indicating plenty of moisture below 700 mb, thus expect a continuation of mainly cloudy skies overnight. There is some weak warm advection around 700 mb and this may result in some light snow or light snow showers overnight, north of the Katahdin region. Any precipitation that falls overnight will be light, generally a couple hundreths of an inch or less, thus any snow that falls will not accumulate much more than a few tenths of an inch at best. A little concerned about the potential for some light patchy freezing drizzle/light snow/freezing drizzle combination late tonight, as forecast soundings are showing dry air above 700 mb layer. Have decided to mention patchy freezing drizzle after midnight, mainly north of the Katahdin region. The cloud cover should keep temperatures from falling much overnight, thus went a few degrees higher than NBM numbers for overnight lows.

On Thursday, we will see the approach of a 500 mb low diving southeast from Ontario/Quebec provinces. Again, expect a mainly cloudy sky with plenty of moisture in the low levels. Continued weak warm advection around 700 mb will likely generate a little light snow or snow showers, mainly north of the Katahdin region. As we head later into the afternoon, the chances for snow will increase farther to the south in association with the developing inverted trof. Again, any snow on Thursday will remain relatively light, generally an inch or less. Highs on Thursday will range from the mid to upper 20s north and low to mid 30s Downeast.

SHORT TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/. Surface low pressure will track well southeast of the Gulf of Maine Thursday night into Friday, with a trof extending back across the Gulf of Maine toward the Downeast coast. However, uncertainty still exists regarding the exact location and movement of the trof. At the same time, an upper level low will move south across New England. Convergence along the trof will help focus an area of snow Thursday night into Friday. Whether this area of snow remains mostly offshore, or reaches the Downeast coast is still uncertain. Accumulating snow is likely Downeast Thursday night into Friday. However, accumulations will be dependent on the eventual location, persistence and movement of the trof. Lesser snow chances will exist across northern portions of the forecast area. The trof will pivot southwest then south later Friday into Friday night with snow exiting across the Gulf of Maine. Could still have lingering snow showers Downeast early Friday night. Otherwise, expect mostly/partly cloudy skies across the region Friday night. High pressure will build toward New England Saturday with partly cloudy skies across the forecast area. Temperatures will be at slightly below normal levels Friday/Saturday.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. High pressure builds toward the region Saturday night, then crosses the region Sunday through early Monday. Generally expect mostly clear/partly cloudy skies across the region Saturday night through early Monday. Low pressure will intensify along the Mid Atlantic coast Monday into Monday night then track northeast Tuesday into Wednesday. Uncertainty still exists regarding the track and timing of this low which has the potential of bringing accumulating snow to the region. However, potential impacts from the storm will be dependent on the eventual track and timing of the low. Temperatures will be at slightly above normal levels Sunday, with above normal level temperatures expected Monday through Wednesday.

AVIATION /00Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. NEAR TERM: Aroostook county terminals will see mainly MVFR ceilings through Thursday. There may be a period of IFR ceilings vcnty KCAR/KPQI terminals early Thursday morning. Expect some light snow/snow showers to possibly affect the terminals after midnight and continue through Thursday. Some patchy -FZDZ is possible as well through about 14z Thursday.

For KBGR/KBHB, expect MVFR ceilings early this evening, with ceilings becoming VFR at times overnight into Thursday morning. MVFR ceilings expected by later Thursday afternoon in some developing light snow late.

Light north wind through Thursday.

SHORT TERM: Thursday night through Friday . Generally MVFR, with occasional IFR/LIFR. A chance of snow north, snow likely Downeast. North/northwest winds 10 to 20 knots Thursday night, then 15 to 20 knots with gusts up to around 25 knots Friday.

Friday night . VFR/MVFR early, then VFR. North/northwest winds 10 to 15 knots with gusts to around 20 knots.

Saturday through Sunday night . VFR. North/northwest winds 10 to 15 knots with gusts to around 20 knots Saturday, then 10 to 15 knots Saturday night through Sunday.

Monday . VFR early, VFR/MVFR late. A slight chance of snow late Downeast. Light winds.

MARINE. NEAR TERM: Winds/seas will generally remain below SCA levels through Thursday.

SHORT TERM: A Gale Watch has been issued for much of the waters, with the exception of the intracoastal waters, from later Thursday night through late Friday night. Small craft advisory conditions are expected Saturday. Visibilities will be reduced in snow Thursday night into Friday evening. Light freezing spray is expected Thursday night into Saturday.

CAR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. ME . None. MARINE . Gale Watch from late Thursday night through late Friday night for ANZ050-051.
