Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 652 AM EST Sat Feb 29 2020

SYNOPSIS. Low pressure over Quebec will slowly move across the region today. High pressure will cross the region later Sunday into Monday. A warm front will cross the region later Monday. A cold front will cross the region Tuesday. Low pressure will cross the region Wednesday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. 6:52 AM Update: Cloud cover is beginning to increase across the north, with some Kelvin-Helmholtz wave clouds visible out the north windows at our office. Minor adjustments were made to temperatures, cloud cover and placement of a band of slight chance PoPs over the next few hours based on radar.

Previous Discussion . Satellite this morning continues to show an upper level low spinning over southern Quebec and progressing slowly eastward towards the forecast area. Upslope enhanced lake effect streamers appear to be weakening, with mostly clear to partly cloudy skies. Areas of clearing over the fresh snow pack in northern Maine led to temperatures falling significantly at the usual cold spots such as Houlton and the North Woods overnight.

Cold air aloft and proximity of the upper level low will once again favor snow showers and convective cloud cover with diurnal heating today; However, winds aloft around 850mb are not nearly as strong as yesterday, with speeds around 20 to 30 knots. The strongest gusts will occur along the leading edge of snow showers. HRRR runs early this morning indicate the most numerous snow shower activity during the evening across Downeast Maine as energy and cold air aloft from the upper low move closer to the area. Snow squall parameters are once again highlighting the Central Highlands and into central/southern Aroostook County for initial development of snow showers. There is also evidence of a weak cold front and low level convergence that sweeps across the forecast area around and just after sunset. This feature will cause winds to shift from southwest to northwest and may be accompanied by a narrow band of convective snow showers as it passes.

An elongated area of surface low pressure is forecast to develop near Nova Scotia this evening, extending northwestward from a surface low over the Gulf Stream, well southeast of Nova Scotia. Some high resolution guidance shows the precipitation shield clipping coastal Washington County and the Eastport area. As the aforementioned weak cold front interacts with this feature, a more defined band of snow may develop around Eastport. While the best chance for accumulating snowfall is to the east over Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, short term trends will need to be monitored closely. For now chance PoPs were extended into the evening with snow accumulation under an inch across the far southeastern part of the forecast area. This feature will move northeast after midnight and a second vorticity maxima will rotate around the back side of the upper level low, bringing a slight chance of snow showers or flurries across northwestern portions of the forecast area by daybreak Sunday. Expect at least partial clearing overnight on the lee side of mountains with northwest flow leading to downsloping. With clearing and snow still in place, a similar night to last night is expected with significant variance in low temperatures across the north. Sheltered areas and lower elevations will be most apt at forming a strong enough nocturnal inversion to keep winds at bay and cool efficiently.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/. The slow moving upper low will begin to move east Sunday, with surface high pressure building toward the region late. Expect mostly cloudy skies across northern areas Sunday, with also a slight chance of snow showers early. Expect mostly sunny/partly cloudy skies Downeast Sunday. High pressure crosses the region Sunday night with partly cloudy skies north, mostly clear Downeast. High pressure exits across the Maritimes early Monday, with a warm front then crossing the region late. Clouds will increase in advance of the warm front Monday. Will also have a chance of snow showers north, with a chance of snow/rain showers Downeast, later Monday. The warm front exits across the Maritimes early Monday night, with a cold front starting to cross the region late. Expect snow showers, possibly a steadier snow, across northern areas Monday night with light snow accumulations. Expect a chance of snow/rain showers Downeast Monday night. Temperatures will be at slightly below normal levels Sunday, with slightly above normal level temperatures Monday.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. The cold front will stall along the Downeast coast or Gulf of Maine Tuesday, with low pressure developing along the front to the southwest of the region. Mostly cloudy skies are expected Tuesday along with a chance of snow/rain showers. The low will track northeast along the front, toward the forecast area, Tuesday night. Steadier precipitation will begin to expand across the forecast area in advance of the low Tuesday night. Precipitation will remain in the form of snow across northern areas Tuesday night. Warmer air being drawn north will support a snow/rain mix across central and Downeast areas. Models are in better agreement with tracking the low across the forecast area Wednesday. Models have also trended colder with the system. This could slow the transition to a snow/rain mix across northern areas, with the Saint John Valley possibly remaining mostly snow. An early snow/rain mix is still expected to transition to rain across central and Downeast portions of the forecast area. Precipitation totals and possible snow accumulations remain uncertain. The low will exit across the Maritimes Wednesday night through Thursday. Precipitation will taper to snow showers in the wake of the low Wednesday night. Several upper level disturbances should then cross the region Thursday/Friday. Generally expect mostly cloudy skies across the north and mountains Thursday/Friday. Could also have a chance of snow/rain showers Thursday, with a chance of snow showers Friday. Across Downeast areas, expect mostly/partly cloudy skies both Thursday and Friday. Could also have a slight chance of snow/rain showers Thursday, then a chance of snow/rain showers Friday. Temperatures will remain at above normal levels Tuesday through Friday.

AVIATION /12Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. NEAR TERM: Today . VFR except MVFR to IFR in isolated to scattered SHSN. Not as windy, with SW wind gusts up to around 15 to 20 kts during the day.

Tonight . VFR with skies becoming partly to mostly clear. Winds shifting NW with gusts up to 15 kts.

SHORT TERM: Sunday through Sunday night . Generally VFR. Occasional MVFR conditions possible across the north early Sunday along with a slight chance of snow showers.

Monday . VFR/MVFR early, then MVFR/IFR. A chance of snow and rain showers.

Monday night through Tuesday . MVFR/IFR Monday night through early Tuesday, then VFR/MVFR later Tuesday. A chance of snow and rain showers.

Tuesday night . Conditions lowering to IFR/LIFR levels. Snow north, with a snow/rain mix Downeast.

Wednesday . IFR/LIFR. Snow or a snow/rain mix north, rain Downeast.

MARINE. NEAR TERM: SCA conditions will persist through early to mid morning before both winds and seas subside by this afternoon. Extended the SCA to run through most of the morning. There is also a chance for snow showers late this afternoon and evening, which may briefly reduce visibility.

SHORT TERM: Small craft advisory conditions are expected Sunday through Monday night. Light freezing spray is expected early Sunday then again Sunday night. Visibilities could be reduced in rain showers Monday night.

CAR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. ME . None. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory until 10 AM EST this morning for ANZ050- 051.

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.
