Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 354 AM EDT Thu Jun 13 2024

SYNOPSIS
High pressure will build south of the region through tonight. A cold front will cross the area Friday followed by high pressure Saturday into Sunday. High pressure will shift south of the area on Monday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/
A more westerly flow aloft is expected with drier and warmer weather expected today. After any early morning patchy fog and low clouds burn off, expect a partly to mostly sunny day across the region.
Afternoon highs will range from the mid 70s to near the 80 degree mark, but it will be several degrees cooler along the coast.

Increasing clouds are expected tonight in advance of an approaching upper trough and cold front from Quebec. The southerly flow in advance of the approaching front and increasing clouds will keep overnight lows tonight in the lower 60s for most of the area. A few showers are expected to move out of Quebec and into northern areas after midnight. Latest CAMs not showing much in the way of thunder potential, although cant totally rule out an isolated thunderstorm across the crown of Maine. Low stratus will once again be a concern for Downeast areas.

SHORT TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/
Cold front will be back to our west on Friday morning. Any showers that moved through overnight will likely have shifted northeast into New Brunswick and or dissipated by 12z. Given the clouds and rainfall from overnight not expecting much in the way of instability over the northwest as front and/or pre-frontal trof looks to move through by 18z. Best CAPE looks to be in a line from Houlton down toward Bangor early-mid afternoon but this will depend on how far marine layer can advance during the morning. Any storms that can develop will have the potential to produce damaging winds given the shear expected. SPC has kept southern inland areas in a marginal risk for severe weather for Friday.

Latest 00z guidance and cams continue to suggest locally heavy rainfall for Friday night over Downeast as wave of low pressure moves along quasi-stationary boundary. Cannot rule out tropical moisture being ingested into nrn stream as it moves acrs Downeast areas overnight. Model most favorable for this soln continues to be EC with NAM/GFS and CMC more separated with very little chance of phasing over our waters. Have continued with idea of around 1 inch of rainfall from about Bangor Region southward toward the coast.

Showers linger into Saturday morning over southeastern zones with cooler and drier air following in wake of fropa. Temps will likely be below normal with highs across the north in the upper 60s and interior Downeast around 70 degrees.

High pressure begins to build in Saturday night with H5 trof heading into New Brunswick. Skies will clear with mins possibly dropping into the 30s over the North Woods with 40s expected elsewhere.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/
After a brief cooldown temps will be on the increase on Sunday.
Sunny skies under building ridge will allow max temps to rise just above normal late in the weekend. H5 high will be setting up over the Appalachians and into the southeast on Monday with ridge axis nosing up into the northeast U.S. Temps on Monday will climb to near 80 with u80s/near 90 for Tuesday into Wednesday.

Ensemble means showing 594dm ridge over southern New England on Wednesday with deterministic EC indicating a 600dm high center over western NY while CMC shows a 598dm high center over our waters. All this to say that the heat will be on acrs the area the middle part of next week though this does not account for any potential ridge riders we may get moving through.

AVIATION /08Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/
NEAR TERM: Localized IFR/LIFR conditions expected at the terminals through 12Z in patchy fog.

Otherwise, VFR conditions are expected into this evening. Low clouds are once again expected to impact the BGR/BHB terminals overnight with IFR/LIFR possible.

S wind around 10 kt expected through tonight.

SHORT TERM: Friday...MVFR/IFR expected with showers over northern Aroostook terminals. Chance of afternoon thunderstorms for southern terminals. SSW 5-15 kts with gusts to 25 kts.

Friday night...Becoming VFR across the north with IFR cigs and vsbys in locally heavy rain over Downeast terminals. NW 5-10kts.

Saturday...MVFR/IFR early Downeast terminals in showers, improving to VFR in the afternoon. NW 5-15kts.

Saturday night-Monday...VFR. NW 5-15kts into Sunday, becoming WSW 5-10kts late Sunday night.

MARINE
NEAR TERM: Winds/seas remain below SCA levels into this evening.
Winds/seas will then begin to increase in the southerly flow ahead of the front late tonight through Friday, with seas building to 4-6 ft across the outer waters. Thus, have issued a Small Craft Advisory beginning late tonight. Visibility will be reduced at times to 1 to 3 NM in patchy fog this morning and again tonight.

SHORT TERM: Marginal winds gusts Friday morning with stable conditions over the waters. Seas will be around 4-6 feet over the outer waters in southerly swell. Seas will remain elevated into Friday evening before diminishing. Winds and seas remain below advisory levels into early next week.

CAR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
ME...None.
MARINE...Small Craft Advisory from 5 AM to 11 PM EDT Friday for ANZ050- 051.
