Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 535 AM EDT Sun Sep 20 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will build over the region through Sunday and will remain overhead Monday. Hurricane Teddy will pass east of the area Tuesday and Tuesday night. Weak high pressure follows for Wednesday and Thursday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. Very dry high pressure at the surface will dominate the New England region today with sunny skies and low humidity across Northern and Eastern Maine. North winds will keep the warmest temperatures across Downeast and the coast, but much of the CWA will warm to around 60 under full mid-September sun. Meanwhile, upper trough will be amplifying through the afternoon and pushing towards the east coast by the evening hours.

The high remains parked over the area tonight for another calm and cloud free night. Expect good rad cooling once again for a frost and freeze scenario similar to Sat night. Along the coast, winds will increase from the NE as upper trough continues to move into the Atlantic.

SHORT TERM /MONDAY THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/.

High pres to remain in control through Monday night and then attention turns to Hrcn Teddy.

It will be a bit warmer on Monday with light winds and sunny skies. Daytime temps will be near normal. Another chilly night Monday night w/the high right across the region. Light winds and clear skies will allow for temps to drop quick after sunset. Another round for frost especially across the n and nw areas as temps drop into the low and mid 30s.

Tuesday for the most part will be a sunny day w/clouds advancing from the sse Tuesday afternoon as Hrcn Teddy apchs from the open Altc. NNE winds are forecast to increasing during the day leading to a cooler day w/temps a tad below normal. Rain looks like it could makes its way into the coast, especially Washington County by late afternoon. The system is expected to continue its track n into Tuesday night nearing eastern Nova Scotia by early Wednesday. Winds will continue to increase Tuesday night w/rain pushing across eastern areas of the CWA w/a sharp cutoff to the rain one moves w. The highest rainfall amounts look to be across Washington County. As a matter of fact, areas w of say from Caribou to Bar Harbor could be shut out totally of the rainfall. The long range guidance has come into better agreement w/the storm being near or just e of Nova Scotia. Differences are still there in the final track w/the ECMWF taking Teddy over eastern Nova Scotia and continues it n. The Canadian Global and GFS bring the storm near eastern Nova Scotia later Tuesday night into early Wednesday and then swing it ne. This track would give a glancing blow to the region. The official NHC track is near northern Nova Scotia. As the storm starts to transition to extra- tropical(post tropical) later Tuesday afternoon or evening as it looks right now. When this happens, the wind field will expand w/some stronger winds hitting eastern Maine and the coast. There is possibility of seeing winds gusting to over 50 mph along the coast, and including Washington County where the greatest impacts could occur. After collaboration w/the NHC, decision was to hold off on any Tropical headlines. The concern is that the system could transition to extra-tropical(post tropical) before it gets near the outer Gulf of Maine waters.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. The official NHC track as the storm lifting n through the Maritimes pulling away on Wednesday w/breezy conditions continuing. Winds will drop off Wednesday night as some weak ridging builds across the region. Temps Wednesday night are expected to be in the 40s. A weak frontal boundary is expected to swing across the region on Thursday w/just some clouds and little ir any rainfall w/a westerly flow aloft. Thursday looks to be warm day w/daytime temps well above normal. High pres is expected to build n of the region Friday into Saturday per the ECMWF w/dry conditions. The GFS and its Ensemble Mean show the front stalling near the Downeast region on Friday w/a weak wave moving along the boundary to bring some rain or showers later in the day on Friday and continuing into Friday night. The Canadian Global is similar to the GFS but more robust w/the rainfall and shows a closed low diving s across srn Maine. Since we are looking at days 6 and 7 and the above discrepancy, decided to stay w/a blend and show go w/20-30% pops for showers during this timeframe.Temps during this period look to be near normal.

AVIATION /09Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. NEAR TERM: VFR. North winds pick up during the afternoon, approaching 15 kt at BGR and BHB. VFR continues today with calm winds.

SHORT TERM: VFR Monday into Tuesday. Light NW winds less than 10 mph into Monday night increasing from the NE on Tuesday to 10-20 mph and some higher gusts by Tuesday afternoon.

Tuesday night into Wednesday . Basically VFR with the exception of possibly KHUL and KBHB as some MVFR conditions w/rain possible. This will dependent on the track of HRCN Teddy. NNE Winds will increase to 10-20 mph w/higher gusts. Winds will drop off later in the day on Wednesday into Wednesday night to around 10 mph.

Wednesday night into Friday . Attm it looks like VFR for all terminals w/light and variable winds.

MARINE. NEAR TERM: Wind gusts to 25 kt in the coastal waters will slowly slacken to 10 to 15 kt through the afternoon. Wave heights increase 4 to 6 ft through tonight. Long period swell continues with a SE swell of 14 to 16 seconds.

SHORT TERM: Headlines are expected w/possible Gale Force conditions by Tue night into Wed morning. A Long period swell of 14-17 seconds is forecast to set up on Mon and continue into Tue night. Along w/this swell will be building seas from 5-6 ft on Mon to possibly 10-12 ft by Tue night. The wind field from Teddy will also be increasing from 10-15 kt Mon afternoon to 30-35 kt by later in the day on Tue. The winds will start to drop off by Wed morning.

Wed into Thu . Sustained winds 10-15 kt into Wed evening w/gusts 20 to 25 kt. Winds will be dropping off on Thu to around 10 kt and become SW. Seas will dropping from 4-5 ft on Wed down to 2-3 ft by Thu.

Thu night into Fri . NNW winds around 10 kts w/seas around 3 ft.

FIRE WEATHER. Near Term: Issued a SPS for elevated fire danger today. RH values beneath cool and dry high pressure will fall into the 20 to 30 percent range. This combined with dead/dry fuels from ongoing Severe/Extreme drought will promote fire growth. Winds will be lighter than Saturday, but gusts approaching 20 mph can be expected Downeast this afternoon, with winds 10 to 15 mph across the north.

Short Term: Dry weather continues through early week ahead of Teddy which is forecast to pass outside the Gulf of Maine Tuesday afternoon. Teddy's wind field will expand, and wind gusts of 20 to 30 mph will be possible across much of the forecast area Tuesday and Tuesday night. The exception may be lighter winds in the far North Woods/Allagash Valley. Widespread wetting precipitation is not expected at this time. The greatest amounts are forecast Downeast and along the eastern border with New Brunswick. Some RH recovery around 50 percent is anticipated with Teddy's passage, however presence of gusty winds amid Severe/Extreme drought conditions warrants the need to monitor fire danger categories and potential headlines.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. Storm surge does not look all that impressive as HRCN Teddy apchs from the open Atlc w/the highest surge being around 1 foot but at the time of low tide. The more challenging item is the long period swell that will begin to show up on Monday and expand into Tuesday w/5-6 foot waves building into Tuesday evening. The concern is that this setup occurring around the time of high tide could lead to some overwash and perhaps the potential for some coastal flooding. This despite that the winds will be NNW, which is an offshore component. There have been some cases that have shown w/a long period swell and waves of 5-6 ft could lead to overwash and even minor coastal flooding.

CAR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. ME . Freeze Warning until 9 AM EDT this morning for MEZ001>006-010- 011-015-031-032. Frost Advisory until 9 AM EDT this morning for MEZ016-017-029- 030. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory until 5 PM EDT this afternoon for ANZ050- 051.
