Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Gray ME 347 AM EST Wed Nov 25 2020

SYNOPSIS. A warm front will lift through the area today spreading light snow across the north with a light mix across the interior and rain across the south. Low pressure brings mainly additional precipitation to the area Thursday with a drying trend Friday. A cold front crosses the area Saturday followed by high pressure on Sunday. Active weather is expected early next week with a pattern change.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. We remain in near zonal flow today with a steady stream of energy crossing just north of the region. High pressure shifts east this morning allowing for a moist southerly flow to return. There should be enough lift and moisture for some spotty precipitation. It will be cold enough for snow, sleet, and pockets of freezing drizzle at times today as warmer air arrives from the south, and the colder air retreats to the northeast. Temperatures warm into the 30s across the area today and linger there for much of the interior during the late morning into the afternoon hours. Not expecting much accumulation, but we may need a SPS for slick travel later this morning with holiday traffic in mind. Central Somerset County could also see 1-3" of snow, but it will be a small area and does not warrant an advisory.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/. WAA continues overnight with cloudy skies and light precipitation. Lows will hover in the upper 20s/lower 30s north, to the mid 30s to near 40 south.

A southern stream perturbation approaches from the SW Thanksgiving Day, moving across southern New England Thanksgiving night. We will be in broad WAA with a disorganized surface system producing areas of precipitation during this time. The majority of the hydrometeors will be rain with temperatures warming throughout the column. Most of the QPF should fall over southern and coastal sections closer to the better frontogenetical forcing. We should vary from a tenth of an inch of QPF across the mountains to a half inch to an inch along the coast. Otherwise it will be cloudy with highs around 40 in the north to the mid to upper 40s along the coast.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. The extended forecast period will feature above normal temperatures and a drying trend Friday into the weekend. A weak wave of low pressure will exit the area Friday morning followed by a cold front Saturday. High pressure crosses the area Sunday followed by periods of active weather early next week with a blocking pattern setting up over eastern North America.

Thursday night will be mild with any showers coming to an end Friday morning as a weak area of low pressure pulls away from the area. Friday will be mostly cloudy and mild with highs in the 40s north to mid 50s south. A cold front will cross the area Saturday bringing chances for rain and snow showers primarily to the mountains. Downstream of the mountains skies will be partly cloudy and temperatures will range from the low 40s north to low 50s south. High pressure brings fair weather Sunday and then will shift east of the area Monday.

Global models are in agreement in a complex pattern change next work week as northern and southern stream energy phase over the Ohio Valley with upstream blocking. This results in an cut-off upper low spinning over the Great Lakes for much of the week. At the surface cyclogenesis is expected as northern and southern stream energy phase Monday. Ensembles generally agree the surface low will form over the Mid-Atlantic and track to our west through upstate NY, although member spread ranges from Michigan to the Gulf of Maine. The western track through upstate NY will leave us on the warm side of the system with the potential for heavy rainfall late Monday through Tuesday night as PWATs approach and possibly exceed +3 sigma for this time of year.

AVIATION /09Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. Short Term . Could see some scattered light mixed precipitation, especially across the interior today, but not expecting much impact at the terminals. In most cases did not have enough coverage and/or confidence to warrant an inclusion in the TAFs. Ceilings should drop to MVFR for most sites by late morning, with some brief improvement around 00Z. LLWS looks possible today at KHIE in particular.

Long Term . Gradual drying trend will bring improved conditions Friday with mainly VFR expected over the weekend except for some restrictions in showers in the mountains Saturday. Next system begins to approach the region on Monday with IFR rain moving in Monday night.

MARINE. Short Term . SCA in effect for all waters from mid morning today through tonight with increasing southerly flow and seas increasing to around 5-7 ft.

Long Term . Occasional seas to 5 ft over the outer waters will subside Friday as weak low pressure pulls away from the area. Wind gusts will generally be below 20 kts through the weekend with a period of gusts to 25 kts Saturday night behind a cold front. Low pressure passing to our west will bring increasing southerly winds and building seas Monday with SCA conditions likely.

GYX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. ME . None. NH . None. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory from 10 AM this morning to 11 PM EST this evening for ANZ150>154.

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.
