NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Caribou ME 
953 PM EDT Monday Apr 27 2015 


Synopsis... 
upper level low pressure will keep unsettled conditions across 
the region through middle week. A break in the unsettled weather is 
expected by late in the week. 


&& 


Near term /through Tuesday/... 
10 PM update... 
a few showers continuing to stream across County Warning Area courtesy of pesky vorticity 
maximum. Thus, have boosted probability of precipitation again to lochc through 06z when it appears 
that vorticity will have moved through most of County Warning Area. No changes needed to remainder of 
grids as it appears mins will settle out in the u30s. 


6 PM update... 
quick update to boost probability of precipitation in a line from Fort Kent to Greenville 
for this evening as another spoke of energy rotates on the back side 
of upper low. Expect this will die off in the next hour or so as the sun 
sets. No other changes needed at this time. 


Previous discussion below... 


Showers continue this afternoon as low pressure slides southwest 
along the southern Nova Scotia coast. The low's track will turn 
more south and eventually southeast overnight, taking it away from 
our area. As such, showers will come to an end quickly this 
evening. Clouds will stick around though, keeping temperatures in 
the upper 30s to around 40 overnight. 


For Tuesday...the upper low that has plagued the region over the 
past several days will slowly move east on Tuesday. Another 
shortwave will rotate around the low tomorrow, but with the low 
shifted further east, most of the showers that develop with this 
wave will be confined to eastern portions of our forecast area. 
It'll be another breezy day as well since the pressure gradient 
across the region will remain fairly compact. Highs will range from 
the lower 50s north to middle 50s south. 


&& 


Short term /Tuesday night through Thursday/... 
still a couple of turns and weak spokes of shortwave energy left with 
a very slowly departing middle level vortex into the open North Atlantic from 
eastern Nova Scotia...meaning another round of scattered showers is possible 
from east-northeast to west-southwest across the forecast area Tuesday night. 


Aftwrds...slow...but more general improvement to weather conditions 
across the forecast area...at least with regard to little or no shower activity 
Wednesday into Thursday...and at least a little more sunshine as weak flow 
aloft replaces the upper low. Forecast hi temperatures...which we indicate to 
be slightly below average both days may be a little conservative 
depending on how much sunshine we get...considering the sun at 
midday this tm of year is as high in the sky as middle Aug. 
Otherwise...cloud cover will continue to keep overnight lows Tuesday night and Wednesday 
night a little milder than average. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
both the dtmnstc 12z GFS and European model (ecmwf) model solutions are in better 
agreement with slowly taking a surface low tracking off the southeast coast 
east-northeast well S of the Gulf of ME from Thursday night into Sat. Conditions 
will likely continue to slowly improve...with both hi and low temperatures 
gradually warming...especially sun and Monday when shortwave ridging aloft begins 
building over new eng ahead of a new approaching shortwave trough system approaching 
from the Great Lakes. We cannot rule out brief showers late Sun afternoon 
into Monday morning msly across the north with some shortwave energy topping the 
building upper ridge...but nothing like the tm covering they occurred last 
weekend into Erly this week...and with less wind and much milder 
temperatures (i... we Dare say). 


&& 


Aviation /02z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
near term: VFR and occasional MVFR conditions expected through 
afternoon. Northern terminals may approach IFR ceilings but have kept 
ceilings around 1500ft for now. After 18z, expect ceilings to rise to VFR 
category. Winds will remain out of the north next 24 hours 
occasionally gusting to 22-30kts during the day. 


Short to long term: msly VFR all taf sites...xcpt MVFR clgs with 
showers possible Tuesday night...msly northern taf sites. 


&& 


Marine... 
near term: Small Craft Advisory is now in effect due to wind gusts 
having increased above 25kts sooner than anticipated. Gusts 
will remain around 30 knots with waves 5 to 7 feet expected. 
Conditions will improve a bit Tuesday afternoon, but winds will 
remain just under small craft levels through much of the day. 


Short to long term: initially...near Small Craft Advisory conditions expeceted Tuesday night 
into Wednesday morning...the winds and waves subside later Wednesday into the late 
week. The next potential of Small Craft Advisory conditions may be long period swell 
waves Friday night into Erly sun from a relatively distant surface low 
tracking ewrd S of the Gulf of ME. Kept close to ww3 WV guidance 
for forecast WV heights...xcpt went a little below guidance late Friday into 
Erly Sun morning at this time for swell impacts from the low tracking well S 
of the waters. 


&& 


Car watches/warnings/advisories... 
ME...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory until 11 am EDT Tuesday for anz050>052.
