NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Caribou ME 
557 am EST Monday Nov 24 2014 


Synopsis... 
strong low pressure will cross the Great Lakes and move northeast 
into Quebec province today. A cold front will cross the region 
tonight...with a second cold front crossing the region Tuesday. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
555 am update...the rain's on its way...currently moving into far 
western Maine. Temperatueres look to be above freezing just about 
everywhere, except a few cold spots in central Penobscot/southern 
Piscataquis County. Expect temperatures to continue to rise prior 
to the rain's arrival (temps already in the lower 40s at kbgr), so 
don't anticipate much, if any, frozen precipitation to occur. The 
forecast has this covered, so no major changes were needed. 


Previous discussion...low pressure currently centered near 
Southern Lake Michigan will continue to lift northeast into 
Ontario today and eventually into Quebec this evening, deepening 
as it does so. Mild air will spread into northern New England on 
the strong southwest flow ahead of the low and its attendant 
occluded front. The swath of frontal/warm advection rain is moving 
into eastern New York and western New England early this morning 
and will continue to push eastward through the day. This system is 
a fast mover, so the frontal passage will be a quick one. Expect 
the rain to move into western sections of our forecast area by 
middle-morning and to exit into New Brunswick by middle-evening, as 
indicated by the latest hrrr model guidance. The front itself 
won't move through until a bit later in the evening, and with 
plenty of low-level moisture around, there'll still be the chance 
for fog and drizzle through midnight or so. Rainfall totals will 
be a quarter to a half inch, with some of the upslope regions in 
the Central Highlands getting up to three-quarters of an inch. The 
other concern with this system is the potential for gusty winds, 
especially along the downeast coast. Gusts of 40 miles per hour will be 
possible, which may cause some downed limbs or trees and perhaps 
isolated power outages. Temperatures will be quite mild today and 
tonight; highs will range from around 50 to around 55. Guidance is 
even indicating that temperatures will hold steady or even rise 
overnight, only falling late once the front has moved through. 


&& 


Short term /Tuesday through Wednesday/... 
cold low level advcn will be continuing through Tuesday behind a secondary cold 
front. Skies will begin mclr to partly cloudy Tuesday morning...with more in 
the way of broken-overcast SC and a slight chance of snow showers for northern portions of 
the forecast area late Tuesday into Tuesday night as whats left of an upper trough slides 
ewrd msly north of the region. Temperatures will hold steady the first few 
hours of Tuesday morning...then begin to fall...especially across the north. Overnight 
temperatures will be colder than Monday night...but still above normal for lows 
Erly Wednesday morning. 


Wednesday will begin partly cloudy most lctns...but hi and middle cldnss from 
the surface low advcg newrd from the southeast states will ovrsprd the region 
from SW to NE during the day. The leading edge of precipitation will reach 
downeast areas by middle afternoon and at least into east central portions of the 
region by the beginning of evening. Hi temperatures Wednesday will be about 10 
to 15 degree colder than hi temperatures Tuesday. Precipitation may briefly begin as 
light rn or a mix of light rn/snow over downeast areas...but evaporational 
and dynamic cooling from aloft should change any rn to all snow by evening... 
xcpt perhaps along the immediate coast and outer islands where rn or 
mixed rn and snow could on until late tonight. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday night through Sunday/... 
we noted that the 00z dtmnstc European model (ecmwf) has shifted the track of the 
coastal low further east than recent past runs...now taking the low 
into the Eastern Bay of fundy. Meanwhile...the 00z dtmnstc GFS run is 
also a slightly more east with the track of this system compared to 
yesterday at this time...along with the corresponding GFS ensm...both taking 
the low along the S coast of Nova Scotia by Thursday morning. If the GFS... 
which represents the middle of models with regard to the track is 
correct...the best potential of heavy snfl Wednesday night into Thursday morning 
would be over downeast to perhaps as far north as east central portions of the 
forecast area. Given the uncertainties with this system...which includes 
difficulties of gaging the amplitude of the southern jet stream shortwave 
supporting the surface low and the potential of any phasing from northern 
jet stream shortwave energy...it is to Erly to issue any wntr storm 
watches at this time...and it is possible that the consensus model track 
could shift a little further east with future model runs. In any 
event...we will continue to advertise this event in our hazard weather outlook 
and highlight a better potential of possible watches for especially 
downeast and east central portions of the region. 


Otherwise...any steady snfl over portions of the forecast area Thursday morning should 
wind down to scattered snow showers Thursday afternoon as the surface low tracks east-northeast from 
Nova Scotia. Left over low level moisture from the exiting surface low and 
a follow-up shortwave from S central can will keep the chance of snow showers 
especially for the north half of the forecast area Thursday night into Friday before skies 
finally become clear to partly cloudy Friday night. Semi-Arctic air follows 
the can shortwave for Friday night. Another shortwave from central can will likely 
bring more snow shower activity to the region later Sat into sun as it 
approaches and tracks msly north of the region. Enough return srly low level 
warm advcn could occur for snow showers to mix with or change to rn showers 
over the S half of the region sun before a strong cold front crosses 
the region by late sun. 


&& 


Aviation /12z Monday through Friday/... 
near term: MVFR conditions are expected to prevail this morning, 
then give way to IFR by early afternoon as rain spreads into the 
region. The rain will taper off to showers by 00z, but lowered 
ceilings and reduced visibilities will linger through 06z due to 
fog and drizzle. 


Short to long term: VFR expeceted Tuesday through Wednesday morning...with MVFR SC 
clgs possible far northern taf sites from late Tuesday into Wednesday. 
Otherwise...IFR-LIFR in snow will spread newrd across downeast 
sites late Wednesday and continue newrd through the remainder of the taf sites 
overnight Wednesday. IFR in snow will continue Thursday morning across northern taf sites...but 
will improve to MVFR over downeast sites. Conditions will then 
improve to MVFR northern taf sites in SC clgs and snow shower visibilities Thursday 
afternoon through Friday and improve to VFR over downeast sites. 


&& 


Marine... 
near term: a Gale Warning remains in effect for today and tonight. Low 
pressure moving up well to the northwest of the waters will allow 
winds and waves to build this morning, with gusts to around 40 knots 
possible. Seas will build to 8 to 12 feet. 


Short to long term: Small Craft Advisory winds and WV heights will continue Tuesday with west-southwest 
wind fetch and then taper Tuesday night. After a brief break Wednesday morning... 
winds and seas will again increase to at least Small Craft Advisory range by late 
Wednesday with the approach of the coastal low from the SW and continue overnight 
Wednesday into Thursday as the low tracks toward the Maritimes. Gale 
conditions are possible...but given uncertainties with the 
track and strength of this low...its to early to commit with 
gale force winds Wednesday night and Thursday at this time. Kept close to ww3 WV 
guidance for WV heights this update. 


&& 


Car watches/warnings/advisories... 
ME...none. 
Marine...Gale Warning from 10 am this morning to 4 am EST Tuesday for 
anz050>052.
