Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 119 AM EDT Tue Jun 2 2020

SYNOPSIS. Canadian high pressure will build tonight and slide south of the area Tuesday. A warm front will approach from the southwest Tuesday night, then stall near the coast with a wave of low pressure riding along it on Wednesday. An occluded front crosses the area Wednesday night, followed by weak high pressure building in Thursday and Thursday night. A cold front approaches from the northwest Friday, then slowly crosses the region from Friday night into Saturday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TODAY/. 115 AM Update . Expanded freeze warning south a bit based on temperatures dropping a bit faster than expected in the Houlton area. In fact, Houlton is down to 30, and the all-time June record is 28. Also added patchy valley fog based on light winds and relative humidities approaching 100 percent. Some mid-level clouds around Bangor, but generally clear tonight.

Orgnl Disc: Cumulus and stratocu that formed with the cold upper trough today will gradually dissolve this evening. Winds will also become light as mixing stops. This will lead to good radiational cooling conditions with a shallow inversion forming. Frost is expected in most of the area and will issue another round of rare June frost and freeze headlines. The inversion will be short-lived Tuesday morning. Less moisture for cumulus and warm advection means mostly sunny skies and highs rising back into the 60s . but still cooler than normal. Steep low level lapse rates and a deep mixed layer can be expected again. Lowered dew points below guidance using forecast sounding data. In terms of winds, did increase wind gusts with the mixing, but winds aloft are weaker Tuesday. Reduced highs right along the coast on Tuesday with a southwest wind developing in the afternoon.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/. A northern stream shortwave passes Tuesday night with some isolated to scattered showers associated with its passage. Lows Tuesday night should be near to slightly below normal.

The models then differ on how quickly an 850 hPa front moves through the region Wednesday and Wednesday night (initially pushing somewhat N as a warm front Wednesday, then going S as a cold front Wednesday night). The location and strength of this low level frontal band will determine the location and timing of precipitation Wednesday and Wednesday night. For now it appears the lowest chances for any showers should be over the Crown of Maine both Wednesday and Wednesday night with the best chance from the Central Highlands on south. Given the uncertainty have capped pops at chance for now. Highs on Wednesday should be around 5 degrees below normal and lows Wednesday night within a few degrees of either side of normal.

The region should be under the base of a cutoff low over N Quebec on Thursday. Outside of any lingering showers from the departing frontal band Thursday morning Downeast, it should be dry, with no significant shortwaves progged to round the base of the trough. Highs on Thursday should be near to slightly above normal.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/. The region remains under the base of the closed low Thursday night and once again with no significant shortwave progged over the region, it should remain dry.

A northern stream shortwave should join the closed low by Friday morning over eastern Ontario and help kick out the base as a positively tilted northern stream trough tat tracks to the St Lawrence River Valley by Saturday morning, then slowly across Maine then into the Canadian Maritimes by Sunday. As a result should see some showers, with possibly a rumble of thunder across the North, from Friday through Saturday, with showers possibly lingering into Saturday evening.

The region remains on the backside of a mean trough Sunday and Sunday night. Drying low-mid levels should keep things dry.

Deep layered ridging builds in on Monday, so it should remain dry due to subsidence under the ridge.

Temperatures should be above near to above normal Thursday night, through Saturday. Temperatures should then be below normal on Sunday, then near to slightly above normal on Monday.

AVIATION /05Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. NEAR TERM: VFR conditions continue through the period with less cloud cover and wind for Tuesday.

SHORT TERM: Tuesday Night-Thursday night . VFR, except MVFR possible in any isolated to scattered showers Wednesday and Wednesday night.

Friday-Saturday. MVFR possible with showers. An isolated Thunderstorm is possible for all but Downeast terminals.

MARINE. NEAR TERM: Seas will remain mostly in the 2 to 3 ft range offshore, less in the bays. West winds will shift NWerly tonight . and then back to southwest Tuesday afternoon. Wind speeds and gusts will drop this evening, but pick up again Tuesday afternoon. Winds will remain well below advisory criteria.

SHORT TERM: The pressure gradient should slacken Tuesday night and then remain light through Friday morning. So while there could be some gusts up to 20kt Tuesday evening, winds should otherwise be 10 kt or less from Tuesday night through Friday morning. The pressure gradient then tightens somewhat Friday afternoon through Saturday with gusts up to 20 kt possible, mainly over the coastal ocean waters.

A persistent onshore flow could build seas to SCA levels over the coastal ocean waters from later Friday through Saturday. Otherwise sub-SCA conditions are expected through this time frame.

CLIMATE. Record low temperatures for Tuesday June 2:

Caribou 33/1998 . Houlton 30/1998 . Bangor 32/1945

The dry streak at Bangor continues with today marking the 16th day without more than a trace of precipitation. This is the longest streak since late Sept-early Oct 2017 and is the longest streak in late May into early June since 1950. The dry conditions are expected to persist Tuesday.

CAR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. ME . Freeze Warning until 7 AM EDT this morning for MEZ001>006-011. Frost Advisory until 7 AM EDT this morning for MEZ010-015>017- 029>032. MARINE . None.

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.
