NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Caribou ME 
854 am EDT Friday Aug 1 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will slowly move east of the region today into 
Saturday. Weak low pressure from the Middle Atlantic States tracking 
toward the Gulf of Maine could result in showers over downeast 
portions of the region Saturday afternoon and night. 
&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
900 am update: made some adjustments to sky cover. Stratus remains 
across eastern areas. North and west remain mostly clear. Fog has 
dissipated across most of the Hancock County coast but remains 
along the Washington County coast. 


Orgnl disc: shallow areas of fog mainly over broad valley areas will 
continue at least into the Erly morning hours inland...and perhaps as long 
as late morning along the immediate downeast coast as low level moist air 
remains trapped over our forecast area. 


After the fog lifts...enough instability will build under partly to 
msly sunny skies late this morning into Erly afternoon for cumulus clouds to 
grow to scattered showers across the northern two thirds of the forecast area later this 
afternoon...with covering perhaps numerous across the Baxter Park and central 
ME Highlands portion of the region as a weak shortwave from eastern ont/southeast qb 
moves east-northeast across the northwest portions of the forecast area. Maximum afternoon SBCAPE is not 
forecast to exceed 500j/kg over any portion of the forecast area...but there may be 
enough to break the middle level cap this afternoon for isolated thunderstorms with the 
showers...especially over mountain terrain...so we mention isolated thunderstorms with probability of precipitation 
greater than 25 percent through 9 PM. Hi temperatures this afternoon will not be 
much different than yesterday afternoon. 


Whats left of the afternoon showers will gradually dissipate as they move 
NE toward northern New Brunswick prov by late evening as the shortwave moves toward the 
Gaspe Peninsula...allowing for some clearing and radiational cooling 
across the north half of the forecast area late tonight. This...in turn will again 
likely result in more areas of fog across the region late tonight. 
Overnight lows tonight will likely be a 2 or 3 degree warmer than this 
current Erly morning. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday through Sunday/... 
the unsettled pattern theme continues across much of the region 
for this period. Primary upper low that has been nearly stationary 
across southern Hudson Bay area will begin to press north and east. 
However continued west to SW flow aloft will continue to bring 
disturbances along the flow. This will continue to bring chances of 
mainly afternoon showers and thunderstorms across the region. Models 
have been indicating a disturbance riding NE along the flow 
approaching the region Saturday. This would bring better lifting 
dynamics downeast particularly along and near the coast. Plan to 
bring probability of precipitation up some to reflect this reasonable trend. More 
uncertainty exist as we go into Sunday with less dynamics and more 
diurnally driven showers and thunderstorms expected again mainly 
across the north and northwest portions of the forecast area. Near to slightly above 
normal temperatures expected through the period. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
unsettled pattern continues with long wave trough and disturbances 
moving through the upper level flow. Best chances of precipitation right 
now look to be on Monday and Tuesday with lesser chances through 
the rest of the period. Even some scattered thunderstorms 
possible mainly north of the coast on Monday and Tuesday afternoon 
with decent cape profiles seen in forecast soundings. Most of the 
shower chances appear to be mainly diurnally driven with afternoon 
heating. However depending on timing of some of the disturbances 
this could enhance precipitation at times during the period. Temperatures 
through the period will generally be near normal. 


&& 


Aviation /13z Friday through Tuesday/... 
near term: most taf sites in our forecast area will begin vlifr-IFR in 
shallow fog Erly this morning...then improve to VFR by late morning... 
xcpt perhaps kbhb which may hold on to IFR longer until about midday 
due to lingering ocean St. All sites will likely lower back to IFR 
again late tonight in another round of broken-overcast St/fog. 


Short term: VFR conditions expected except particularly valley 
sites could see reduced conditions with fog during overnight 
hours. Showers and thunderstorms could also briefly reduce 
conditions at sites that receive heavier storms through the period. 


&& 


Marine... 
near term: no hdlns slated through the near term...with 8 second period 
swell gradually subsiding from 2 to 4 feet today to 1 to 3 feet tonight... 
higher waves over the outer mzs. Due to the semi-swell nature of 
waves...we kept close to forecast ww3 WV heights this forecast update. Otherwise... 
moist semi-tropopause air gliding nwrd over the Gulf of ME waters from the 
open Atlantic will continue to result in areas of fog restricting visibilities to 
a mile or less today through tonight. 


Short term: no Small Craft Advisory headlines expected with winds and seas staying 
below thresholds. Southerly flow will continue to bring the 
possibility of reduced visibilities due to fog. 


&& 


Car watches/warnings/advisories... 
ME...none. 
Marine...none.
