Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Public Information Statement  Statement as of 4:30 am EDT on May 22, 2015


... National safe boating week continues today...

..rip current safety...

With Summer coming just around the corner you are most likely
planning for Summer beach days. Do you know The Hazards of the
beach? How about rip currents?

Check water conditions before going in by looking at the local beach
forecast before you leave for the beach and talking to the lifeguard
at the beach.

Only swim at a beach with lifeguards. The chances of drowning at a
beach with lifeguards are 1 in 18 million (u.S. Lifesaving
association).

Don't assume! Great weather for the beach does not always mean it's
safe to swim or even play in the Shallows. Rip currents often form
on calm, sunny days.

Check this link for some lifesaving information on rip currents

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Caribou ME 
930 am EDT Friday may 22 2015 


Synopsis... 
a cold front will move through the region today. Conditions will 
remain unsettled into Saturday as an upper low moves across the 
region from Canada. Another cold front is expected for Sunday with 
more showers. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
925 am update: made minor adjustments to the hrly 
temperatures...otherwise previous forecast on track. 


Previous discussion... 
the main focus this term will be showers,convective potential and 
hail. 


06z surface analysis had low pressure moving across northwest Maine west/the 
cold front still back across the Quebec region. Batch of showers 
have pulled NE into New Brunswick. Infrared satellite imagery showed clouds 
moving across the region west/some breaks across northwest Maine and more 
breaks back across western Quebec. Patchy fog setting up across 
eastern Washington County this morning west/a low cloud deck. This 
area of clouds was due to the south-southeast flow from the Gulf of Maine. 
As low pressure passes north of the border this morning, the associated 
cold front is forecast to move across the region. More showers are 
expected west/the heaviest activity across northern and eastern 
Maine. Stayed west/the daycrew's thinking of 60-70% probability of precipitation across the 
northern 1/2 of the County Warning Area and chance elsewhere. Model soundings 
including the NAM and GFS point to some instability later this 
morning into the afternoon west/the NAM being the most robust west/its 
instability parameters. The interesting features of note are the 
850-500mb lapse rates of 6.5 c/km and MUCAPES 400+ joules. Middle/upper 
levels are quite cold per the 00z upper air and any heating in the llvls 
could get destabilization going. Freezing levels are forecast to 
be around 5500 feet west/some modest 0-6km shear(20kts). The latest run 
of the WRF and hrrr3km support some convective potential. 
Therefore, decided to add isolated thunderstorms west/the potential for small 
hail through 5 PM. Afternoon temperatures are expected to be well below 
normal and lucky to top 60 degrees across the northern areas. 


The cold front will move southeast of the region by this evening west/colder 
air arriving in earnest through the entire column. The upper level 
low will dive southeast from northwest Quebec tonight west/more precipitation across the 
northern zones. Temperatures are forecast to plunge into the 30s 
across the northern 1/2 of the County Warning Area. There is a good chance that 
the precipitation could be a mix of rain/snow showers or even just snow 
showers especially across far northwest Maine by early Saturday morning. 
No accumulation is expected as ground temperatures are warm. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday through Sunday/... 
the upper low will exit through the Canadian Maritimes on Saturday 
as high pressure builds east. Expect partly sunny skies across 
northern and central areas and partly to mostly sunny down east. 
Expect gusty west winds on Saturday as steep lapse rates promote a 
deep mixed layer. West winds of 20 to 30 miles per hour with gusts over 40 
miles per hour will be possible especially across the higher terrain where a 
Wind Advisory may be required. High temperatures on Saturday will 
range from the low 50s north and the middle to upper 50s central and 
downeast...which is about 10 degrees normal for this time of 
year. 


Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy Saturday night as a short wave 
from the northwest approaches. A few showers are possible later 
Saturday night mainly across the north. Lows Saturday night will 
range from the low to middle 40s. 


A weak ridge will build in behind the exiting short wave on 
Sunday with partly to mostly sunny skies expected. High 
temperatures on Sunday will range from the low to middle 60s north 
and upper 60s down east. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
a warming trend is expected through the long term period. An upper 
level ridge will build across the middle Atlantic coast. A warm front 
is expected to lift northeast Monday night and Tuesday. An 
increasingly warm and humid airmass is expected by middle week. Along 
with the warm and humid weather will come the risk of scattered 
showers and thunderstorms ahead of a slow moving cold front from the 
northwest. The cold front should finally move across the region 
by late next week. 


&& 


Aviation /14z Friday through Tuesday/... 
near term: VFR this morning for all terminals west/conditions 
dropping to MVFR later this morning into early afternoon. Northern 
terminals could have a brief thunderstorm west/small hail. There will be some 
turbulence into early. Winds become northwest by the afternoon and 
increase to 10 to 20 kts. Conditions are forecast to improve to 
VFR by the evening for all terminals. 


Short term: VFR and gusty west winds can be expected on Saturday. 
VFR Saturday night except MVFR possible in scattered showers mainly 
north. VFR Sunday/Monday. VFR Tuesday with scattered afternoon shower/thunderstorm 
possible. 


&& 


Marine... 
near term: no headlines foreseen at this time. Decided to bring wind gusts 
up some over the outer zones tonight as northwest flow and cold air advection take hold. 
Therefore, gusts could hit 25 kts are possible especially over the 
outer waters. Waves will build some, but the highest waves will 
be well southeast of the region west/a swell generation developing from the 
low passing southeast of the waters. This is picked up well by the Swan 
guidance. Stayed west/seas building to 3-5 feet tonight, mainly across 
the outer zones. 


Short term: Small Craft Advisory conditions are possible Saturday and again Sunday. 


&& 


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