Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 609 PM EDT Thu Jul 29 2021

SYNOPSIS. Low pressure approaches from the west this evening and cross the area tonight into Friday as it pulls a cold front through. High pressure will build south of the area Saturday. Low pressure will approach on Sunday, and pull away from the region by Monday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH FRIDAY/. 6:09 PM Update: Low pressure moving across NY State early this evening will track into the Gulf of Maine overnight. The low will move to near Eastport, Maine by late Friday morning. Rain will overspread the area from the southwest this evening. The rain will start in the greater Bangor Region within the hour, and work up toward Caribou/Presque Isle by late this evening. The past few hours of observed data were loaded in and some minor adjustments were made based on the expected conditions. The most significant changes were to the the PoPs this evening to ramp them up a bit quicker across the southwest third of the FA.

Previous discussion: The skies will become overcast this evening as rain approaches from the southwest. Low pressure will organize and track along the Maine coast overnight into Friday morning, with rain ahead and wrapping around the pressure center. Increased convergence and lift Downeast and the Bangor Region will promote the chance for heavy rain late this evening and overnight. Forecast flash flood guidance is high enough to limit a FF threat, but some localized ponding of water in poor drainage areas will be possible.

The immediate coast will also see some breezy to gusty winds up to 25 mph late tonight w/ passage of the low.

Low pressure pulls NE on Friday afternoon, with cool air aloft pushing in behind. It will be cool, with highs in the mid 60s across the North Woods and upper 60s Downeast. NW flow behind the low w/ remaining moisture will spawn some scattered showers and the chance of some thunder in the afternoon.

SHORT TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/. Low pres lifting up through the Maritimes Friday night w/showers gradually winding down w/some scattered showers mainly across northern areas. A chilly night expected w/overnight lows in the mid/upper 40s across the northern 1/2 of the CWA, while central and downeast areas will see lower 50s. Saturday will feature an upper level trof across the region w/some forcing to allow for shower activity across the northern areas. There looks to be some potential for possible tstms w/modest CAPE and decent mid level lapse rates. The NAM and GFS point to this potential w/an inverted v sounding leading to some gusty winds. Decided to add a mention of tstms in the forecast for Saturday across the northern and northwestern areas. Further s, drier conditions due to a downslope WNW flow. Well below normal temps. Clearing should take place w/some weak ridging from high pres to the s. Once again, another chilly night w/temps in the mid/upper 40s north and west, and low to mid 50s central and downeast.

Now we come into Sunday w/the yet the apch of another system which is slated by the long range guidance showing low pres to lift up across the state. This system has the potential to bring another round decent rainfall to the region. There are some differences in placement of the QPF and the low. A bit warmer on Sunday as a SSW flow takes over by the afternoon. Still running a bit below normal, but readings at least 5-10 degrees warmer than Saturday. Steady rainfall will start moving in later in the day on Sunday, first arriving in the western and southwestern areas and then spreading northward by Sunday evening.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/. Rain overspreading the region Sunday night as low pres lifts up into the state. Definitely some differences in the track of the low and placement of QPF. The ECMWF is further east w/the low and hence keeps the higher rainfall totals across the central and eastern areas, while the GFS track shows the heavier rainfall further to the w, which is very beneficial as these areas are running much drier and streams/rivers are low. Given the cooler temps aloft, some elevated convection is possible, which would enhance the rainfall. The low is expected to lift into New Brunswick later Monday afternoon w/the rain transitioning to showers and then ending. A cold front is expected to slide across the region on Tuesday w/scattered showers and possible tstms. The long range guidance does point to the potential of some convection w/warmer ahead of the apchg front and cooling aloft allowing for further destabilization. There is still plenty of time to assess this further as we move closer in. It looks like high pres settles into the region on Wednesday and holds into Thursday w/temps moving toward normal readings for the 1st week of August.

AVIATION /22Z THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. NEAR TERM: VFR conditions are expected today into this evening. Conditions will lower to MVFR then IFR late tonight as lower clouds and rain move in. +RA is possible, with BR. Conditions along the coast, namely BHB and BGR may approach LIFR after midnight local as well as experience some LLWS.

Condition improve to MVFR Fri afternoon with a NW wind shift. -SHRA and VCTS possible in the afternoon across Aroostook terminals.

SHORT TERM: Fri night . IFR/LIFR early w/rain and some tstms especially across KBGR and KBHB. Improvement is is expected MVFR going to VFR at BGR and BHB. Northern terminals look like they will hold on to IFR conditions w/rain ending later on. WNW wind 10-15kts w/some higher gusts.

Sat-Sat night . Mainly VFR w/the exception for the northern terminals n of KHUL, as cigs could drop to MVFR w/showers and a risk of tstm Sat aftn into early evening. W wind around 10kts w/higher gusts Sat afternoon.

Sun-Mon . VFR going to MVFR by Sun evening w/conditions hitting IFR/LIFR later Sun night right into Mon w/rain and possibly a tstm. SSW < 10 kts through Sun night becoming W on Mon at 10 kt.

Mon night-Tue . IFR/MVFR becoming VFR for all terminals. W wind 5-10 kts becoming SW.

MARINE. NEAR TERM: Winds will reach SCA in gusts to 25-30 kt overnight in the south wind ahead of the approaching trough of low pressure. Visibilities should be good through this evening but will likely lower in some rain and patchy fog late tonight. Seas also increase to 3 to 6 ft. Seas decrease to 3 to 5 feet Friday afternoon with winds becoming W.

SHORT TERM: SCA possible late Fri night into Sat morning w/gusts to around 25 kts mainly over the outer zones. Seas 4 ft increase to 5 ft over the outer zones by Sat. W wind 15-20 kts w/gusts in the lower 20 over the zones into Sat afternoon.

Sat night into Sun . W wind 10-15 kts becoming SW on Sun. Seas around 4 ft.
