Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 613 PM EDT Wed Apr 17 2024

SYNOPSIS
High pressure crosses the region tonight into Friday. An occluded front approaches later Friday, crosses the region Saturday, then exits across the Maritimes Sunday. High pressure builds toward the region Monday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH THURSDAY/
6:13 PM Update: Satellite pictures early this evening show clouds across most of the Crown, with clearing in western Aroostook County. The clouds are expected to slowly dissipate this evening with a seasonably cold night. Most areas inland from the coast will drop below freezing. Made only minor adjustments to account for the current conditions and expected conditions tonight. No changes planned for any other forecast periods at this time.

Previous discussion: Surface/upper level ridging build across the region tonight through Thursday. Diurnal clouds, most extensive across northern Aroostook county, will dissipate early tonight leaving clear skies overnight. Expect mostly sunny skies Thursday with diurnal cloud development. Low temperatures tonight will range from the mid to upper 20s north, to around 30 to the lower 30s Downeast. High temperatures Thursday will range from the mid to upper 50s across much of the forecast area. Lower to mid 50s are expected along the Downeast coast where a sea breeze will likely develop.

SHORT TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/
Thursday Night...
Surface high pressure will be over the area with very light winds. However, a very weak shortwave trough, further weakening as it moves into our area later in the night, will likely bring increased high clouds. Should still cool off pretty easily, especially early in the night, with lows around freezing.

Friday...
Surface high pressure moves to our east with a south breeze developing. Some mid and high level clouds but no precipitation as atmosphere will be too dry. Fairly mild with highs around 60 in the north and low to mid 50s closer to the coast with temperatures a little cooler there thanks to the onshore breeze.

Friday Night...
Weak shortwave trough moves through from west to east along with an occluded front. It should be warm enough for rain, and precipitation is looking quite light and less than a quarter inch. Some places may not get any rain. Breezy from the south, but no concern that it will be strong enough to lead to any impacts.

Saturday...
The breeze shifts to west/southwest behind the occluded front.
Some showers could persist, but think that much more of the day Saturday will be dry than wet. Highs in the mid 50s to low 60s.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/
Looking a bit cooler Sunday and Monday with cooler air under west/northwest flow. Generally dry, though can't rule out a shower or two in the north/northwest.

Pattern begins to shift Tuesday as flow becomes SW ahead of an an upper level low diving down from the north. Should be a bit warmer Tuesday and still dry. Then Wednesday/Thursday could be rather active as the upper level low pressure moves somewhere roughly over our region. Still plenty of model disagreement on where the upper level low goes along with its strength and amount of moisture. Most models/ensembles have some rain Wed/Wed night. However, a minority of models do have it getting cold enough with enough moisture lingering for rain changing to accumulating snow Wed night or Thursday. Definitely something to watch.

AVIATION /22Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY/
NEAR TERM: VFR conditions expected tonight through Thursday.
North/northeast winds 5 to 10 knots tonight. Variable winds 5 to 10 knots Thursday, except becoming onshore along the Downeast coast.

SHORT TERM: Thursday night and Friday...VFR. Light winds becoming southerly at 10 to 15 kt Friday afternoon.

Friday night into Saturday morning...MVFR tempo IFR due to cigs.
Southerly winds 10 to 15 kt becoming southwesterly 10 to 15 kt.

Saturday afternoon through Monday...VFR. West winds 10 to 15 kt with gusts to 20 kt Sunday.

MARINE
NEAR TERM: Winds/seas below small craft advisory levels tonight through Thursday.

SHORT TERM: Conditions generally below small craft, though conditions may get close to small craft levels late Friday night.

FIRE WEATHER
A prolonged period of dry weather with low relative humidity and gusty winds is expected through Tuesday. The only decent rain chance comes Friday night, when amounts will be less than a quarter inch.

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