Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 618 AM EDT Mon Apr 15 2024

SYNOPSIS
A disturbance crosses the area today followed by a weak cold front tonight. High pressure approaches later Tuesday, then crosses the region Wednesday through Thursday. An occluded front approaches Friday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/
6:17AM Update...No major changes. Minor tweaks to POPs based on CBW radar trends showing showers working through much of the north this morning.

Previous Discussion...
A weak boundary is pushing through Maine this morning with isolated to scattered showers mainly across the north, mainly from Baxter SP northward. Isolated to scattered showers pushing east out of southern Quebec and Northern Vermont should push eastward into NH and then eventually into Maine. These will likely be very isolated this morning into Somerset and Piscataquis counties and perhaps making it to Bangor. Best chance of showers today will be across the northern 1/3rd of the CWA with isolated showers across southern 2/3rd of the CWA
More sunny breaks south will result in a warm day there with highs in the upper 50s to near 60F. Low to mid 50s across the northern 2/3rd of the CWA Winds are shifting west today with 5-15mph expected.

Tonight, expect a break in between departing shortwave and another piece of energy at 500mb diving south with even weaker surface reflection. Isolated showers across the north and departing isolated showers over the Downeast coast expected.
Some of these showers across the north may mix with wet snowflakes as temperatures fall and wetbulb temps reach 32F.
Colder airmass is working into the area with lows in the low to mid 30s north, mid 30s over the Central Highlands and upper 30s to the Downeast coast.

SHORT TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/
A broad upper level trough will gradually shift eastward into the Canadian Maritimes through the day on Tuesday. As it exits, just enough instability and moisture will remain across the area for the return of diurnally driven cumulus clouds and convective showers. That said, since the main upper level support will be decreasing as the trough axis exits the area, showers will be fewer in number than seen the previous few days under the bulk of the trough. Some snowflakes may mix in Tuesday night, and will be most likely seen at higher elevations across the North Woods. Accumulating snow is not likely, as low temperatures Tuesday night will only just fall below freezing across the north.

A ridge of high pressure will begin to build across northern New England on Wednesday, leading to clearing skies. High temperatures will lift into the 50s across much of the forecast area on Wednesday, and fall to around freezing once more Wednesday night.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/
Model trends continue to increase the strength and resilience of the ridge of high pressure sitting across northern New England into the latter half of the work week, with current consensus being around a 1030 mb high. This setup will act to slow the incoming occluded low pressure system. Current trends are still for the occlusion to begin to diminish as it reaches the high pressure, lessening the chance for widespread rain across the forecast area Thursday night into Friday.

Eventually, the blocking ridge of high pressure will begin to break down and shift eastward, and current guidance points to this happening over the weekend, allowing for the triple point low off the southern New England coast to rejuvenate a surface trough extending up into our forecast area, and bringing a round of scattered to numerous rain showers through our region.
However, there remains uncertainty in this evolution, with a chance that the ridge of high pressure will continue to overperform what is modeled, and delaying the threat for precip even further. The longer the break in between wetting events through this weekend, the drier surface conditions will become, and will be something to monitor for fire weather concerns.

AVIATION /10Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/
NEAR TERM: VFR today, brief MVFR possible with VCSH or -SHRA is possible. W-NW winds 5-15kt. Tonight, VFR with VCSH. W winds 5-10kt.

SHORT TERM: Tues: VFR across all terminals, though brief MVFR/IFR possible over northern terminals in -SHRA. W to NW winds 10 to 15 kts gusting 20 to 25 kts.

Tues night - Thurs: VFR across all terminals with cigs trending towards SKC. NW winds 5 to 10 kts shifting NE to E on Thurs at around 5 kts.

Fri: A chance for cigs to drop towards MVFR/IFR, should rain showers move in across the forecast area. If rain remains to the west, conditions could remain VFR through the day. Winds S 5 to 15 kts.

MARINE
NEAR TERM: Small Craft Advisory remains on the waters through 8pm this evening. Southerly swells continues to run higher than model guidance expecting 5-7ft seas today on the Coastal Waters out 25nm. Intra-Coastal waters the winds/waves remain below SCA conditions. Wave period is generally 9-10sec through tonight.
Isolated to scattered showers will briefly reduce vsby at times.

SHORT TERM: Winds and seas are expected to sit below small craft advisory level through the week. Seas may be near 5 ft on the coastal waters early Tuesday, but will continue to trend down through the middle of the week. Wind gusts are expected to remain below 20 kts as high pressure leads to calmer conditions.
A low pressure system will approach from the west late in the week, but it is possible this system may dissipate prior to crossing the waters.

CAR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
ME...None.
MARINE...Small Craft Advisory until 8 PM EDT this evening for ANZ050- 051.
