NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Caribou ME 
114 PM EST Tuesday Nov 25 2014 


Synopsis... 
a cold front will cross the region this afternoon...with high 
pressure crossing the region tonight. Low pressure from the 
coastal Middle Atlantic States will lift across the Gulf of Maine 
Wednesday night and exit across the Maritimes Thursday. 
&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
update... 
a cold front/trough will cross the region this afternoon with 
partly/mostly cloudy skies across northern areas and generally 
partly cloudy skies across the remainder of the forecast area. An 
isolated shower is also possible across northwest areas this 
afternoon. Diurnal mixing will help transport the strong winds 
aloft to the surface across northern portions of the forecast area 
this afternoon where a Wind Advisory remains in effect. Lighter 
winds will occur southward across the remainder of the forecast 
area. Afternoon high temperatures will range from the middle 40s to 
around 50 north...to the upper 50s to around 60 downeast. Have 
updated the forecast to adjust for current conditions along with 
expected afternoon temperatures and cloud cover. 


Partly/mostly cloudy skies along with isolated rain or snow 
showers are expected across northern areas tonight...with partly 
cloudy skies downeast. 
&& 


Short term /Wednesday through Thursday night/... 
for Wednesday...clouds will increase ahead of a low pressure 
system that will organize along the North Carolina coast and 
rapidly shoot towards the southern tip of Nova Scotia by late 
Wednesday night. The low will be a fast-mover and the key will be 
the exact track. A track further east as shown by gems and sref 
will reduce advertised snow amounts. For this forecast...snow 
amounts are predicated on a track taking the low just south of 
Yarmouth in Nova Scotia. Due to uncertainty on the track...will 
maintain the watch rather than committing to warnings and 
advisories at this time. 


As the snow starts Wednesday...the boundary layer will still be 
warm enough for rain. However...evaporative cooling and cold air 
being wrapped into the storm will cause precipitation to change to all 
snow by late afternoon all the way to the coast. The first inch or 
two will fall by early evening...but the heaviest snow is prognosticated 
for the 7pm to 1am timeframe for Bangor and down east when 5 to 7 
inches could fall. Snow will gradually taper off later in the 
night and end early Thanksgiving morning. Storm totals for Bangor 
and down east are expected to reach 9 to 11 inches for the most 
part...if the forecast track holds. Have increased amounts along 
the coast from the previous forecast cycle. On the other 
hand...have reduced amounts in Aroostook County with just a couple 
of inches anticipated in the Saint John valley. 


On Thanksgiving day...snow ends in the morning and clouds linger 
until later in the day. Highs will be in the upper 20s north to 
lower 30s south. Winds will tend to decrease during the day and 
this poses the threat of a strong radiational inversion for 
Thursday. At this time...am going with guidance lows in the 
teens...but zero to low single digits will be possible with 
clearing...fresh snow cover and light winds. 
&& 


Long term /Friday through Monday/... 
cold air continues to filter into the area Friday. Expect cloudy 
skies and a few flurries as an upper trough crosses Friday. Highs 
will be in the middle to upper 20s. This will set the stage for a 
very cold Friday night with widespread single digits and a few 
zero readings possible. Went well below most of the guidance. The 
cold holds on Saturday with highs just a few degrees warmer under 
increasing high overrunning clouds. A warm front crosses Saturday 
night with some light snow...mostly in The Crown of Maine. Lows 
will be early Saturday evening with rising temperatures later. 
A good warmup will occur for Sunday with temperatures reaching the 
upper 30s north and middle 40s along the coast. The cold front will 
cross in the late afternoon or evening with little precipitation. 
There is some question whether a wave forms along the front on 
Monday and brings snow to Bangor and down east. However...at this 
time confidence is rather low in this development and will cover 
with chance probability of precipitation for Bangor and Hancock County. 
&& 


Aviation /18z Tuesday through Sunday/... 
near term: occasional MVFR conditions are possible across the 
north and mountains this afternoon through tonight. 
Otherwise...VFR conditions are expected across the region this 
afternoon through tonight. Strong gusty winds will occur across 
northern areas this afternoon. 


Short term: VFR to start Wednesday. Bgr and bhb will become LIFR 
during the afternoon. The LIFR spreads to all sites in the 
evening. VFR returns to bgr and bhb Thursday morning into 
Saturday. MVFR ceilings will be in and out for hul northward during 
Thursday and Friday. 
&& 


Marine... 
near term: Small Craft Advisory conditions are expected on the 
waters this afternoon into tonight. 


Short term: have issued a gale watch for Wednesday night into 
Thursday morning. Small Craft Advisory conditions are then 
expected later Thursday. 
&&
