Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 923 AM EDT Fri Jun 21 2024

SYNOPSIS
High pressure will build into the region today. Low pressure will approach on Saturday and track north of our area Sunday. A cold front will cross the area Monday followed by high pressure building into the region Tuesday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/
9:23 AM Update...Latest observations have light rain falling in Frenchville. Based on this and radar trends, added in isolated showers for the Crown of Maine for the next few hours. Also added isolated showers for southwestern Hancock County based on radar through midday. Will continue to monitor the progress of these showers.

Previous Discussion...
Showers will be coming to an end this morning across the Downeast and Central Highlands. The 500mb ridge has flatten across Maine with the front slowly sagging south over the Gulf of Maine. Drier air continues to work southward and pushing out the muggy weather that was trapped Downeast. Expecting a generally mix of sun and clouds today across the area with an elongated shortwave transitioning the 500mb flow. At this point expecting that to remain mainly dry with no precip risk. Highs top out in the low 80s (80-83F) across the Central Highlands and Downeast coast just away from the immediate shoreline. Upper 60s to 70s for the areas at the immediate coastline. Across Northern Areas expect mid to upper 70s. Light N-NW winds today generally less than 10mph. Tonight, a weak warm front will be lifting north through Maine. Timing has it pushing into our CWA by daybreak on Saturday morning. Isolated to scattered showers develop with increasing cloud cover. Lows tonight in the low to mid 50s north, upper 50s to near 60F for the Central Highlands and Downeast coast.

SHORT TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/
There are model differences which make the forecast for the weekend a challenge. Low pressure in the western Great Lakes Saturday morning will move east with a warm front setting up south of the area. This front is expected to lift north over the weekend.
The GFS is by far the most aggressive on Saturday in trying to develop rain across much of the FA with the exception of the far north. Most of the other operational models would keep most of the area dry with perhaps a few showers Downeast. As the warm front lifts north Saturday night and Sunday rain chances increase across the entire FA. The GFS appears to again be the odd model out keeping most of the north dry, while other models and model ensembles would point toward the best chance of more significant rain across the north. Given that there remains a moderate to high level of uncertainty will stick fairly close to the ongoing forecast which brings rain north Saturday night with rain across the FA Sunday with a slight chance of thunder Sunday afternoon. Confidence on heavy rain/flooding still remains low despite much of the north in a slight risk for excessive rainfall per WPC. Inverted temperature highs on Saturday with the warmest temperatures across the far north due to lower shower chances and likely more breaks of sun. Highs on Sunday will likely not get out of the 60s in most areas with thicker cloud cover and rain.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/
It likely remains unsettled into Monday with a cold front to cross the area sometime during the day with a continued chance of showers and possible afternoon thunderstorms. It looks likely that ridging builds back in Tuesday with drier weather. The next weather system moves in from the west on Wednesday with an increasing chance of showers and possible afternoon thunderstorms. A cold front will likely cross the area Wednesday night or Thursday, but the timing remains highly uncertain this far out. Temperatures will be a bit above average with the warmest days likely on Tuesday and Wednesday. Although above average, it will not be anywhere near as hot or humid as the past couple of days.

AVIATION /13Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/
NEAR TERM: VFR cigs. N-NW winds 5-15kt. Tonight generally VFR cigs. Light and variable winds. VCSH/-SHRA possible by 12z tomorrow.

SHORT TERM: Saturday: VFR with the chance of MVFR ceilings at KBHB in the afternoon. S/SW wind 5 to 10 knots.

Saturday night and Sunday: Ceilings lowering to MVFR from south to north in rain with the potential for IFR ceilings late Saturday night and Sunday. S/SE wind 5 to 10 knots.

Sunday night and Monday: MVFR with IFR possible at times in rain Sunday night and showers Monday. Chance of thunderstorms from KBGR north Monday afternoon. S/SW wind 5 to 10 knots. The wind may shift into the N/NE from KHUL north Monday afternoon.

Monday night and Tuesday: MVFR Monday night will improve to VFR on Tuesday. N/NW wind 5 to 10 knots.

MARINE
NEAR TERM: Morning fog may reduce vsby at times with showers ending. Winds/seas below SCA conditions through tonight. N-NE winds this morning shifting S-SW this afternoon then light and variable tonight. Seas subsiding to 1-2ft today and becoming 1ft or less tonight.

SHORT TERM: The wind and seas are expected to remain below small craft advisory levels through Sunday, but seas will begin to slowly build during the day Sunday. Potential for SCA level seas on the coastal waters by later Sunday night through Monday, and possibly into Monday night. It looks marginal with combined seas and a south swell building to around 5 ft.
