NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Caribou ME 
930 PM EDT Wednesday Aug 20 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will slowly build down across the area through the 
coming weekend. 


&& 


Near term /through Thursday/... 
930 PM update...the region remains between an upper low over 
Newfoundland and a second low over the Great Lakes. Weak ridging 
between the two lows will make for tranquil weather overnight. 
There will be just a bit of thin cirrus at times from convection 
that is just west of New England across upstate New York. There could be a 
little patchy fog in a few of the river valleys toward morning 
with a mainly clear sky and light wind. Lows tonight will mostly 
be in the 50s...but a few of the deeper valleys in the northwest may drop 
into the 40s. Only minor tweaks to the ongoing forecast based on 
the latest observations and satellite pictures. 


Previous discussion... 
tonight will be mostly clear with light winds as high pressure to 
our north very slowly begins to drop south into our area. Most 
places will remain clear but winds may be light enough for some 
patchy fog toward dawn along some of the river valleys. Skies will 
begin mostly clear on Thursday. A weak upper low west of New 
England will draw just a bit of moisture into the region, mainly 
across the west. Some cumulus will develop and weakly upsloping 
winds from high pressure building down from the north may be just 
strong enough to allow some of the cumulus to form isolated 
showers or thunderstorms, especially in the higher elevations in 
Piscataquis County. Soundings are showing some weak cape although 
a bit of capping around 12k feet may limit convection in most area. 
Otherwise, Thursday will turn out partly cloudy and warm across 
the region. 


&& 


Short term /Thursday night through Saturday/... 
any showers will quickly diminish Thursday evening however expect 
considerable cloud cover to persist which will keep temperatures 
from dropping below the 50s. 


For Friday, a weak disturbance aloft combined with just enough 
moisture and daytime heating will bring the chance for some 
isolated afternoon showers under variable cloud cover. Highs will 
be in the middle 70s. 


High pressure nosing in from the northeast will bring drier and 
slightly cooler conditions for Friday night and Saturday with 
Saturday looking to feature partly to mostly sunny skies, light 
winds, and highs in the low to middle 70s. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
a ridge of high pressure both at the surface and aloft will build 
in for the long range resulting in fair and dry weather under 
partly to mostly sunny skies with a warming trend. How quickly 
temperatures warm heading into early next week will depend on 
quickly the ridge moves off the coast and the resulting SW flow 
kicks in. At this point the next chance for rain doesn't look to 
arrive until middle to late next week. 


&& 


Aviation /01z Thursday through Monday/... 
near term: VFR conditions are expected through Thursday with the 
slight chance for some patchy fog very late tonight or around dawn 
Thursday morning. 




Short term: expect VFR to prevail through the weekend into early 
next week. 


&& 


Marine... 
near term: the wind will be light and seas will remain below Small Craft Advisory levels 
as high pressure builds down from the north. 


Short term: 
conditions will remain relatively tranquil on the seas with no headlines 
expected through early next week. 


&& 


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