Forecast for Marine Location Near Randolph, ME

Discussion for Gray/Portland, ME
MARINE... Short Term...No changes to marine headlines with MISM1 reaching storm force gusts today which will continue into tonight with gale force winds likely to continue through Thursday. Fog will continue over the waters until a strong cold front shifts the strough southerly winds to westerly in the 02-06Z timeframe. Long Term...W/WNW winds will likely continue to gust to or in excess of gale force into Thursday night over the outer waters, but these should drop off prior to day break on Friday. Light to moderate freezing spray is also forecast Thursday night into Friday morning. There may even be a brief period Friday morning where winds fall below SCA levels, but a tightening pressure gradient with high pressure moving into the western Atlantic will result in southwest winds gusting to 25 to 30 kt from Friday afternoon into early Saturday. Over the weekend, conditions look to remain generally below SCA levels, although a wind shift to more easterly or northerly looks to occur either late Saturday or Sunday with a weak low pressure somewhere south of the waters. With this flow pattern over the weekend, would expect to see a return of fog. Another low pressure system and frontal boundary could bring another period of increasing winds and seas next week, but timing and location of the low pressure system is very uncertain.
