NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Caribou ME 
850 am EDT Friday Oct 24 2014 


Synopsis... 
low pressure just south of the Gulf of Maine will move northeast 
and pass south of Nova Scotia by tonight. High pressure will 
briefly build across the region on Saturday. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
850 am update...made minor adjustments to the skycon...pops...and 
hrly temperature grids...otherwise previous forecast on schedule. Flood 
advisories that were up have been allowed to expire. No flooding 
issues reported in the affected areas. 


See the marine section below. 


Streams and rivers have shown significant rises especially across 
the areas that received the heaviest rainfall. No major flooding 
occurred. Some ponding of water and standing water in low spots 
were reported earlier. 


The rain will taper to showers across the downeast region by early 
afternoon while the central and areas will see steady rain longer 
into the afternoon. The central areas will begin to taper off to 
shower activity as the low moves NE and the deformation zone lifts 
across northern Maine. The Canadian Gem has this nicely depicted 
west/ the 1000-1700mb layer moving across northern Maine. This will 
mean periods of heavy rain into the afternoon. As far as rainfall 
amounts, an additional 1 to 1.5 inches could be seen before the 
rain lightens up. Again, not expecting any significant flooding. 
Some minor/nuisance stuff ie expected especially west/clogged storm 
drains due to fallen leaves and debris. It will be chilly 
west/temperatures today running below normal. Temperatures tonight 
will fall back but west/clouds around, thinking here is that readings 
will drop to the middle/upper 30s across the northern 1/2 and around 
40 for the downeast region. 


&& 


Short term /Saturday through Sunday/... 
we will be between weather systems on Saturday as one low pressure 
system will be exiting to the east of Nova Scotia and the next one 
that will be moving through central Canada. Even though we couldnt 
rule out a lingering shower across northern areas Saturday morning 
the bulk of the region will remain rain free with mostly 
cloudy/partly sunny skies expected. Highs on Saturday will range 
from the upper 40s to near 50 north and low to middle 50s downeast. 
Clouds will once again increase Saturday night as a weak low 
pressure system from central Canada approaches with the chance for 
showers by Sunday morning. This low will move east on Sunday but 
an upper level low crossing the region will bring unsettled 
conditions with mainly cloudy skies and scattered showers. Lows 
Saturday night will be in the upper 30s to lowers 40s and high on 
Sunday will range from the upper 40s to near 50 north and middle to 
upper 50s down east. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
the above mentioned system will move east into the Canadian 
Maritimes Sunday night with mostly cloudy/partly cloudy skies. High 
pressure will build across the region on Monday with dry and 
seasonably mild conditions. The high will move east Tuesday night 
with increasing clouds in advance of the next system approaching 
from the west. The front will cross the region Wednesday with the 
chance for showers. Cooler and drier weather will follow the front 
for late week. 


&& 


Aviation /13z Friday through Tuesday/... 
near term: expecting conditions to be bouncing from MVFR to IFR 
today especially the northern terminals. Kfve and kcar were 
actually at VFR as of 07z, but this expected to deteriorate. 
Across kbgr and kbhb, MVFR tempo IFR will hold into this evening. 


Short term:vfr Saturday. VFR/MVFR in scattered showers Saturday 
night and Sunday. VFR Sunday night through Tuesday. 


&& 


Marine... 
near term: update...lowered the Gale Warning to a Small Craft 
Advisory as winds have fallen back to 20-25 knots sustained west/some 
gusts to 30 knots. Seas remained up averaging 9 to 12 feet but starting 
to come down. Forecasts shows this to continue into tonight west/wave 
heights dropping off to 4-6 feet as the low passes southeast of Nova 
Scotia. 


Short term: small craft conditions are possible Saturday morning 
than winds/seas should remain below Small Craft Advisory 
conditions Saturday night through Sunday. Wind/seas could increase 
to Small Craft Advisory conditions Sunday night and Monday. 


&& 


Car watches/warnings/advisories... 
ME...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory until 4 PM EDT this afternoon for 
anz050>052.
