Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 913 PM EST Thu Dec 12 2019

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will move southeast of the region overnight. A warm front will lift north of the area Friday. Low pressure will lift north across Maine Saturday. A cold front will cross the region Sunday. High pressure will build toward the region later Monday. Low pressure will cross the region Tuesday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH FRIDAY/. 9:13 pm update: Latest satellite pictures indicate a clear sky across the FA with just a bit of thin cirrus in spots. Temperatures in many of the normally colder norther valleys have dropped below zero, and the main update at this time was to lower the hourly temperatures and lows. As clouds increase overnight the temperatures will level off and begin to rise a bit. Also, made some adjustments to slow the timing of light snow by a few hours in the north.

Previous Discussion . High pressure will move over the outer extent of the Gulf of Maine this evening. This will keep much of the forecast area in westerly flow north of the high’s center before turning southerly in return flow overnight. This flow combined with a warm front will keep temps from plummeting as low as last night as warm air is advected into the low levels with increasing cloud cover.

The disturbance passing to the north of Maine will bring the chance for brief snow showers in the Crown of Maine through the early morning hours Friday, but little more than a dusting can be expected.

Continual exit of the high will increase return flow rates, as well as moisture advection ahead of an approaching system forming over the Mid-Atlantic states Friday. Precip will be advancing towards the region later Friday, with snow showers in central Maine and rain towards Downeast. There may be a small period of freezing drizzle in the western higher elevations, but currently not forecasting headline worthy amounts.

SHORT TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/. A warm front will move north of the region Friday night while low pressure intensifies along the Mid-Atlantic coast. Expect rising temperatures Friday night with warm advection. Moisture also begins to expand north in advance of the Mid-Atlantic low with increasing precipitation chances. Across Downeast areas, expect a rain/snow mix early Friday night which will transition to rain overnight. Snow will transition to a snow/rain mix across central portions of the forecast area, with mostly snow across northern areas. The low will lift across western New England Saturday. Precipitation will remain in the form of rain Downeast Saturday. Snow will transition to rain across the remainder of the region through Saturday morning into the afternoon. Total snow accumulations through early Saturday, before the transition to rain, will generally range from 1 to 2 inches across the north and mountains with the greater totals across the Saint John Valley and higher terrain areas. Snow totals diminish southward across the forecast area with less than an inch expected across Downeast areas. A low level jet will transport abundant moisture across the region Saturday, with the heavier rains across Downeast areas. The low will track to northern Maine Saturday night drawing a strong cold front across Quebec province. Precipitation will remain in the form of rain Saturday night. The intensifying low will track toward Labrador Sunday drawing the cold front across the region through the morning into the afternoon. The heavier precipitation will exit across the Maritimes in advance of the cold front. Precipitation will remain in the form of rain in advance of the cold front, then transition to snow or snow showers following the cold front. Strong gusty southwest/west winds will develop in the wake of the cold front. Temperatures will be at above normal levels Saturday, then remain at above normal levels Sunday in advance of the cold front. Temperatures will fall following the cold front.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/. Snow showers could linger across the north and mountains Sunday night. Otherwise, expect mostly cloudy skies north with decreasing clouds Downeast Sunday night. Expect decreasing clouds north, mostly sunny Downeast Monday. High pressure will build toward the region later Monday. The tight pressure gradient between the intense Labrador low and building high pressure will support strong gusty west winds Monday, with winds decreasing late. Low pressure should affect the region Tuesday. However, the track of the low remains uncertain. Precipitation chances/types/amounts will be dependent on the eventual track. The low should exit across the Maritimes Wednesday. Generally expect partly/mostly cloudy skies Wednesday with a chance of snow showers. High pressure should build toward the region Thursday with mostly/partly cloudy skies north, partly cloudy/mostly sunny skies Downeast. Temperatures will be at below normal levels Monday through Thursday.

AVIATION /02Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. NEAR TERM: VFR much of tonight with increasing cloud cover. MVFR possible at northern TAF sites well after midnight in -SN. Conditions improve back to VFR during late morning and early afternoon hours. MVFR CIGs will be possible again mainly after 18z ahead of the next storm system. Southerly winds are anticipated, with a chance for some minor low level wind shear

SHORT TERM: Friday night . Conditions lowering to IFR/LIFR levels with snow north, a snow/rain mix across central areas and snow changing to rain Downeast.

Saturday . IFR/LIFR. Snow or a wintry mix transitioning to rain north, with rain Downeast.

Sunday . IFR/LIFR early. MVFR/IFR during the afternoon, then VFR/MVFR late. Rain early. Precipitation transitioning to snow or snow showers following a cold front. Strong gusty southwest/west winds following the cold front.

Monday . VFR/MVFR early, then VFR. Strong gusty west winds.

Monday night . VFR with decreasing winds.

Tuesday . Potential low pressure, though the track remains uncertain. Precipitation chances/types and conditions dependent on the eventual track.

MARINE. NEAR TERM: Conditions will remain below small craft advisory levels overnight. An increasing southerly wind fetch will again build waves Friday afternoon and evening towards 5 feet, with winds close to SCA criteria before again falling Friday evening.

SHORT TERM: Small craft advisory conditions Friday night through Saturday night, with gusts possibly approaching gale levels later Saturday. Gale force winds developing Sunday. Visibilities reduced in rain Friday night into Sunday.

CAR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. ME . None. MARINE . None.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
