NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Caribou ME 
1219 am EST Friday Dec 19 2014 


Synopsis... 
low pressure will exit across the Maritimes overnight. High 
pressure over the Midwest will slowly build toward the area 
through Saturday...and remain over the area into Monday. Low 
pressure will approach the region from the west Wednesday. 


&& 


Near term /through today/... 
1205 am update: only minor changes to hrly forecast temperatures and cloud cover 
from last forecast...otherwise no changes to probability of precipitation at this time. 


Previous disc: low pressure that was responsible for our latest 
winter storm will lift out to the northeast and into the far northwest 
Atlantic Friday. High pressure across the upper Midwest will very 
slowly build toward the region through Friday. Clouds and flurries 
or isolated snow showers Friday morning across The Crown of Maine 
will likely give way to a few breaks of sunshine in the afternoon. 
Downeast areas should be p/sunny. Highs Friday will range from the 
middle to upper 20s across northern Maine to the low 30s in the 
Bangor area. 


&& 


Short term /tonight through Sunday/... 
surface/upper level ridging will build across the area for Friday 
night and Saturday. The biggest challenge during this period will 
be cloud cover and nighttime temperatures as there are indications 
that moisture will get trapped below developing subsidence 
inversion later Friday night and Saturday. Have followed the lead 
of previous shifts and leaned with more in the way of cloud cover 
for later Friday night and Saturday based on model soundings 
(especially the nam)showing shallow moisture layer beneath the 
inversion. Temperatures Friday night may fall into the single 
digits before clouds build in toward Saturday morning. Soundings 
show clouds may hang Tuff right into Sunday. This once again will 
result in a tricky low temperature forecast for Saturday night. If 
clouds hang in temperatures may be several degrees warmer than 
forecasted Saturday night. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Friday/... 
the surface/upper ridges will shift east Sunday night through 
Monday night with dry weather expected. The next system will 
approach the area Christmas evening. Appears the next system will be 
more wet than white as latest guidance shows low pressure passing 
off to our west later Christmas evening through Christmas day. 
Although we may see the precipitation start as snow initially it 
should quickly change to rain all areas by later Christmas evening. 
Temperatures through the extended period should be above normal 
for this time of year. 


&& 


Aviation /05z Friday through Tuesday/... 
near term: variable conditions ranging from VFR to IFR will occur 
across the region through early morning. Conditions will then 
improve to VFR levels downeast...with occasional MVFR conditions 
persisting across northern areas overnight. Occasional MVFR 
conditions are possible across northern areas early Friday. 
Otherwise...VFR conditions are expected across the region Friday. 


Short term: MVFR ceilings are expected to develop later Friday 
night and possibly continue at times right into Sunday especially 
across northern areas. Occasional MVFR conditions are possible 
Monday...with MVFR/IFR conditions Tuesday. 


&& 


Marine... 
near term: a Small Craft Advisory remains in effect across the 
waters overnight into Friday morning. Conditions should then fall 
below Small Craft Advisory levels Friday afternoon. Visibilities 
could be reduced in any snow showers through early morning. 


Short term: wind/seas should remain below Small Craft Advisory 
levels through Tuesday. Small Craft Advisory conditions are 
expected by middle week as the next system moves across the region. 


&& 


Climate... 
a total of 11.3 inches of snow at weather forecast office Caribou as of 1 
PM. The seasonal total is now up to 53.4 inches...which ranks as 
the 3rd snowiest winter season to date behind only 1972 and 2007. 


&& 


Car watches/warnings/advisories... 
ME...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory until 9 am EST this morning for 
anz050>052.
