NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Caribou ME 
335 PM EST Wednesday Mar 4 2015 


Synopsis... 
a secondary Arctic cold front will cross the region overnight. 
Strong Canadian high pressure will build across the region 
Thursday into Friday. Another cold front will approach late Friday 
night and cross the region late Saturday. 


&& 


Near term /through Thursday night/... 
colder air will be moving into the forecast area overnight in two successive 
waves...the first middle to late evening...and a second around daybreak. The 
first could be accompanied by some cldnss and isolated snow showers with 
a couple of St Lawrence streamers being implied for northern ME by the 
latest hrrr hrly sim radar forecast going into the overnight. Any organization 
of snow shower streamers should weaken late tonight as low level lapse rates 
decrease. Just S of the forecast area...precipitation with a second WV of low pressure 
moving east-northeast off the middle Atlantic coast should remain just S of 
downeast coast later tonight into Thursday morning...with northern edge of the 
hi cloud shield reaching nwrd into interior downeast ME. 


Otherwise...skies should be msly sunny...or becoming msly sunny 
Thursday as colder Arctic air prevails across the region. Under fairly 
brisk conditions...hi temperatures Thursday will make limited recovery from lows 
tonight...and will be about 20 degree f colder than tdy's highs. Winds 
should diminish under clear skies Thursday evening as the surface ridge axis 
extends west-southwest to east-northeast across the forecast area...with decent radiational for msly 
broad valley areas late Thursday night while higher terrain holds on on to a light 
breeze. Lows Thursday night will be quite cold...potentially into the 
-20s degree f over the coldest northwest valley areas with single digit and 
teens below zero elsewhere. 


&& 


Short term /Friday through Saturday/... 
high pressure will bring dry weather conditions to the region 
Friday. Highs will range from the teens north the lower 20s 
downeast. A cold front approaches Friday night with increasing 
clouds late. Lows Friday night will be in the single digits 
across the area. A cold front will cross the region Saturday with 
the chance for some northern snow showers. Highs on Saturday will 
be close to normal for this time of year. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Wednesday/... 
the upper level pattern will be fairly zonal through most of the 
long term portion of the forecast. This will bring a series of 
short waves across the region during this period but no major 
storms are expected. Temperatures will actually be close to 
seasonal levels at the beginning of the period and then rise to a 
bit above normal levels by the middle of next week. 


&& 


Aviation /20z Wednesday through Monday/... 
near term: msly VFR through Thursday night...with brief intervals of MVFR 
clgs and visibilities possible with isolated snow showers over northern most taf sites 
late this evening into the overnight tonight. 


Short term: VFR through much of this period although MVFR is 
possible at times in scattered snow shower mainly across the north. 


&& 


Marine... 
near term: Small Craft Advisory wind and sea conditions will prevail at least into 
Thursday afternoon...especially over outer mzs050-051. Otherwise...with colder air 
moving back over the waters...a period of MDT fzg spy is possible Thursday 
night. Kept close to ww3 WV heights...with WV heights this evening running about 
a foot or two above guidance...then to guidance by middle Thursday morning. 


Short term: winds/seas should remain below Small Craft Advisory levels Friday. 
Wind gusts could approach Small Craft Advisory levels Friday night and Saturday. 
Light freezing spray is possible Friday night and Saturday. && 


Car watches/warnings/advisories... 
ME...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory until 1 PM EST Thursday for anz050>052.
