NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Caribou ME 
1223 am EDT Monday Aug 3 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will cross the area overnight into Monday. A cold 
front will approach Monday night...then cross the region Tuesday 
with showers and thunderstorms in advance of the front. Cooler 
and drier weather is expected for the middle and end of the week. 


&& 


Near term /through today/... 
update... 
high pressure will build across the region overnight. Generally 
expect partly cloudy skies across northwest portions of the 
forecast area overnight...with mostly clear skies across the 
remainder of the region. Overnight low temperatures will range 
from the middle to upper 50s across northern areas...to the upper 50s 
to around 60 downeast. Have updated the forecast to adjust for 
current conditions along with expected overnight temperatures and 
cloud cover. 


Previous discussion... 
County Warning Area will be in wmsector on Monday with temperatures climbing above normal. 
Latest BUFKIT soundings show northwest zones will likely be capped until close to 
18z before temperatures aloft begin to drop with appch of 500 mb trough. Cin will 
slowly erode from west to east and expect line of showers and scattered 
thunderstorms to work west by the end of the near term. Airmass 
destabilizes in wmsector with strong middle-level jet expected helping 
to organize any cells that are able to develop tomorrow afternoon. 
Question is what will be the focus for convection as cold front remains well 
back to the west. 12z NAM and hires models indicate a trough of 
lopres dvlpng along the international border by 00z Tuesday which may 
serve as focus. Cyclonically-curved hodographs favor severe weather with 
40-50kt of bulk shear values also supporting damaging winds and 
storms capable of producing large hail. Have continued midnight shift 
advertisement of gusty winds and small hail given question of how 
likely cells will develop drg the afternoon and how quickly cap will erode. 
Later shifts may have to introduce severe wording for late afternoon 
tomorrow. 


&& 


Short term /tonight through Wednesday/... 
unsettled weather is expected for the short term forecast period as a 
large upper level trough beings to move over Quebec and the 
northeast. A couple of shortwaves moving the cyclonic flow around 
the trough will tap moisture and warmth in the boundary layer and 
bring two rounds of showers/storms to our County Warning Area. The round of precipitation 
will arrive on Monday and last through Tuesday. A brief respite in 
the rainfall is expected Tuesday night before the second round of 
showers/storms arrives on Wednesday. There is a small chance that 
some of the thunderstorms across our County Warning Area could be strong to 
severe. The main threat for any severe storms will be across our 
western zones on Tuesday...and then across our southeastern zones on 
Wednesday. Temperatures will start cooling off...with highs 
expected to range from the middle 70s to the lower 80s on Tuesday...and 
range through the 70s on Wednesday. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday night through Monday/... 
the semi permanent upper trough over Quebec weakens later this week 
with the upper low center lifting into Canadian Maritimes. A weak 
coastal surface low moves across the base of the upper trough 
Thursday into early Friday. It appears that this system will stay 
south of eastern Maine. Temperatures will start below normal and 
slowly warm into next weekend. 


Weak disturbances in the upper level flow may bring a chance of 
showers and thunderstorms to eastern Maine next weekend. 


&& 


Aviation /06z Monday through Friday/... 
near term: VFR conditions are expected across the region 
overnight through early Monday afternoon. Variable conditions 
could then begin to occur with any developing showers or 
thunderstorms later Monday afternoon...particularly across 
northern and western portions of the forecast area. Some of the 
stronger storms could contain hail and gusty winds later Monday 
afternoon. 


Short term: showers and storms will affect the forecast area most of 
the short term period. There is a small risk that some of the 
storms may be severe producing frequent lightning...damaging winds 
and large hail. Ceilings/visibilities associated with the stronger showers 
and storms will be reduced into the IFR/MVFR flight categories. 


&& 


Marine... 
near term: winds/seas will generally remain below Small Craft 
Advisory levels overnight through Monday. However...seas could 
begin to approach marginal Small Craft Advisory levels late 
Monday. 


Short term: a Small Craft Advisory may be needed Tuesday night 
into Wednesday as southwesterly winds strengthen across the Gulf of Maine 
ahead of the approaching front. The winds may induce wave heights 
ranging from 4 to 6 feet. 


&& 


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