Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Caribou ME 1224 PM EDT Fri Sep 17 2021

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will moving east of the area today. Another cold front will approach late on Sat and cross Sat night followed by Canadian high pressure for Sunday and Monday, slowing moving south of the area on Tuesday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. 12:24PM Update: Temperatures responding nicely with nearly full sunshine minus some high clouds over Downeast areas and afternoon cu in the north. Expecting clouds conditions to slowly increase during the afternoon as a moist southerly flow is developing. Northern areas are seeing some gusts 15-20mph at times so adjusted winds to reflect that given decent mixing ongoing. With that sunshine and good mixing opted to bump temperatures slightly a degree or two for highs. Already at 70F in Bangor and mid to upper 60s north of Bangor with upper 60s showing up on the coast.

Previous Discussion . A high pressure ridge continues to sit over the region, keeping skies clear and winds light for today. Recent RH models show patchy fog across low lying terrain for the early morning hours, but it expected to clear out after sunrise. As the day continues, S winds will increase with the approaching 300mb jet stream, which will put a low level jet over the northern areas. This will increase gusts up to 15 mph for the afternoon. Ample sunshine and warm southerly flow will help temps stay above average with low to mid 70s across the area.

By the evening, moisture associated with the ridge access and the approaching cold front to the north will push into coastal Downeast during this time. Southerly flow will help push this moisture northward throughout tonight, increasing cloud cover. QPF models show that this low stratus deck contains enough moisture to produce rain, however, these rain showers will be very light, most likely drizzle. In addition, these parameters are perfect for areas of fog to develop throughout the region, mostly after midnight. Little diurnal cooling will keep temps fairly mild throughout the night.

SHORT TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/. By 12z Sat cdfnt wl be on our doorstep, which is just slightly quicker than prior runs. Low level stratus wl likely overspread the entire area Sat morning with srly flow ahead of sfc front and on periphery of sfc ridge axis. As of latest runs, tropical system should stay just far enuf south of the Gulf of Maine to keep fm disrupting low-lvl marine flow Sat morning. Expect that fog wl be present over Downeast around sunrise on Saturday before dissipating within an hour or two. As cdfnt drops south, instability increases after 15z with showers and tstms increasing in coverage by 18z and sliding south thru the day. By 00z expect bndry to be located near central sxns of the CWA before moving offshore after 06z. Storms diminish late in the evening with loss of diurnal htg.

Skies wl clear as 1025mb high advects colder and drier air fm Canada drg the overnight. Temps wl dip into the 40s acrs the north and with clearing skies and light winds, cannot rule out patchy vly fog in areas that receive rainfall.

High pressure will dominate the wx thru the end of the pd with 590dm upr lvl ridge setting up over the east coast by late Sun night. Clear skies and light winds wl bring ideal radn'l cooling conditions to the region by Mon morning with frost possible acrs the north by daybreak.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. H5 ridge wl continue to build acrs the northeast thru early next week bfr next appchg upr lvl system begins to break it down by mid- week. Tuesday still looks to be the warmest of the extndd with temps in the 70s acrs most of the area, warmest over the northwest with maxes pushing into the u70s. Guidance discrepancies begin to show up late in the period with GFS quickest bringing front through Wed night with EC 24 hours slower. Tendency is to side more twd slower side of guidance as GFS tends to bring systems through too quickly, however hv went with chc pops per latest NBM guidance. Deterministic runs of EC and GEM, along with GEM ensembles, are hinting at tropical system over sern Atlantic at the very end of the long term pd.

AVIATION /16Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. NEAR TERM: VFR conditions areawide. Winds are a bit gusty from PQI to FVE. Will need to make those adjustments in 18z TAFs.

Previous discussion . VFR today with brief IFR/LIFR this morning for PQI south due to patchy valley and coastal fog. S winds are expected to increase this afternoon to 5-10 kts. Gusts up to 15 kts expected for FVE, CAR, and PQI. By tonight, a low cloud deck and areas of fog are expected to make all terminals IFR/LIFR, starting Downeast in the evening and push northward throughout the night. Light S winds expected.

SHORT TERM: Sat . IFR in the morning with improvement to MVFR by mid- morning. MVFR in -shra/-tsra during the afternoon and evening. S 5-10kts becoming NW late.

Sat night . Becoming VFR at all terminals late. NW 5-10kts and gusty.

Sun-Tue . VFR. N 5-10kts Sun becoming S Mon morning.

MARINE. NEAR TERM: No changes to the ongoing forecast. Winds and seas will remain below SCA conditions today and tonight. Areas of fog expected tonight and may linger into Saturday morning.

SHORT TERM: Seas increase to above 5ft Sat night in southerly swell before diminishing below SCA levels on Sunday. Wind gusts will briefly gust to 25kts on Sunday behind cold front. High pressure will keep winds and seas below SCA levels early next week.
