NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Caribou ME 
1242 PM EDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014 


Synopsis... 
a cold front will approach later today then cross the region 
tonight through early Wednesday. High pressure will build across 
the region later Wednesday through Thursday. 
&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
1240 PM update...some showers have begun to enter northwest zones with 
skies beginning to clear out just a bit further east of where 
these showers are. Expect some scattered showers and storms this afternoon 
in the north before the main front arrives this evening with more 
widespread showers and storms. Made some adjustments to sky cover 
with this update based on latest satellite. Also adjusted temperatures 
down slightly this afternoon downeast where stratus persists in 
areas. 






Previous discussion... with low level moisture and light 
winds...fog has formed across the forecast area early this 
morning...most extensive across downeast areas where a dense fog 
advisory has been issued through middle morning. The fog will lift 
across the region through the middle to late morning hours. A cold 
front will approach northwest Maine later today. Generally expect 
mostly cloudy skies across the forecast area today. Could also 
have scattered showers and thunderstorms across mostly northern 
and northwestern portions of the forecast area this afternoon. The 
cold front will cross the forecast area tonight with widespread 
showers and thunderstorms. High temperatures today will generally 
range from the middle 70s to around 80 across much of the forecast 
area...with lower 70s along the downeast coast. Low temperatures 
tonight will range from around 60 to the lower 60s across the 
forecast area. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday through Thursday/... 
a cold front moves across the region then eastward into the 
Atlantic Wednesday morning. This system is follow by strong high 
pressure moving in behind the front Thursday. Both the gfs40 and 
European model (ecmwf) have similar solutions handing this scenario so will use 
model consensus using both models for probability of precipitation... sky cover and quantitative precipitation forecast. 
For temperature... dew point and relative humidity will use the 
superblend based on past performance. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Tuesday/... 
high pressure will move to the east of the state Thursday night. 
Intense low pressure will move across James Bay into central 
Quebec province during the day Friday. A cold front behind this 
system will approach from the west Friday night and cross the 
region Saturday. This will result in showers as the system moves 
through. A second cold front will move across the area Sunday. High 
pressure will then build in behind this front Monday. Will use the 
superblend to initialize all grids this period and make only 
minor manual adjustments. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Tuesday through Sunday/... 
near term: variable conditions...generally ranging from IFR to 
vlifr...will occur across the region through middle morning with low 
clouds and fog. Conditions will improve later this morning though 
occasional MVFR conditions could persist into the afternoon. Low 
clouds and fog will be more persistent along the downeast coast 
with IFR/LIFR conditions possibly persisting into the early 
afternoon. 


Short term: expect MVFR/IFR Wednesday. VFR Thursday and Friday. 
MVFR/IFR conditions expected Saturday. 


&& 


Marine... 
near term: winds/seas will remain below Small Craft Advisory 
levels today through tonight. Visibilities will be reduced in fog 
today through tonight. Showers and thunderstorms will also occur 
later this afternoon through tonight. 


Short term: based on performance with boundary conditions will 
use the nam12 for sustained wind speed. For waves: a southerly 
fetch develops ahead of advancing cold front Wednesday. Expect 
this fetch to generate the primary wave group (southerly 3-4 
feet/7-8 seconds) for both Wednesday and Thursday. Also expect 
this to be accompanied by secondary southeasterly long period wave 
system. Will use the near shore wave model for Wednesday and 
Thursday to better adjust waves to boundary conditions. Will use 
initialize with wave watch iii Friday to end of period and make 
necessary adjustments. Another southerly fetch develops Friday 
night and persists into Saturday night.... this fetch is confined 
to colder sea surface temperature so will lower wave heights 10 
percent Friday night to end of period. 


&& 


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