NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Caribou ME 
923 PM EDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


Synopsis... 
fair and seasonal weather is expected into Friday as high 
pressure settles into the region. A coastal storm will likely 
impact the region by late Saturday into Sunday night. 


&& 


Near term /through Friday/... 
923 PM update...weak high pressure continues to build into the 
County Warning Area from the west. There are still a lot of clouds trapped between 
4-6k feet above ground level. The 00z kcar sounding shows this nicely with a 
saturated layer around 6k feet above ground level with good drying evident above 
that layer. The clouds have broken up/dissipated in some spots 
down east...but are holding tough across northern Maine as well as 
the western mountains. There will be continued drying of the air 
mass overnight...but it appears that these clouds will hang in 
much if not all of the night across parts of northern and western 
Maine. The main update was to increase the cloud cover across the 
northern half of the County Warning Area for the next several hours. If the clouds 
hold till morning the low temperatures will be too warm in the far 
north. Will tweak them up a degree or two...but not all that much 
as some clearing is still possible toward morning. 


Previous discussion... 
the main challenge this term will be clouds and temperatures and then 
eyes turn the upcoming storm as discussed in the short term 
section. 


Clouds hanging around a bit longer in the evening per the 
nam12/rap soundings as moisture holding in from 900-800mbs. The 
column looks to dry out later on tonight west/clearing after, but 
clouds will once again increase on Friday as low pressure moves 
across the Great Lakes. Colder air filtering into the region 
overnight west/the partial clearing and wind becoming light, this 
will lead to temperatures by early Friday morning dropping below 
32f all the way down to the interior downeast sections. Attm, it 
looks as though the coast will hold up a bit into the middle 30s. 


For Friday, the thickest cloud cover will be across the north and 
west as discussed above. This will keep afternoon high temperatures in 
the low to middle 40s while more sun across the central and downeast 
areas will allow for upper 40s to lower 50s. 


&& 


Short term /Friday night through Sunday/... 
main focus for this part of the forecast will be coastal storm to impact 
the County Warning Area over the weekend.... 


Clouds thicken up Friday night as low pressure organizes to the 
south in response to strong 500 mb shortwave rounding the base of 
long wave trough. At this point system looks to occur in two 
phases....initial shot of precipitation looks to break out late 
Friday night into Saturday in response to northern piece of 
energy. If precipitation comes in early enough late Friday night or 
early Saturday, there could be a bit of snow at the onset before 
a change to mainly rain occurs Saturday due to boundary layer 
warming. Late in the day Saturday into Saturday night expect 
precipitation to pick up, especially over southern and eastern areas as 
low draws closer. There continue to be differences in the forecast 
models with the GFS now the outlier as it is farther west than 
the European model (ecmwf) and Gem global. Trended toward the Gem/European model (ecmwf) with this 
update which track the low over Nova Scotia compared to the GFS 
which takes the low into the Bay of Fundy. This solution results 
in a transition to snow occurring Saturday evening into the 
overnight as colder air is drawn into the storm from the north. 
The only area that may hang on to a mix or rain would be right 
along the immediate coast. It is still early to be confident on 
snow accumulation however plowable amounts appear likely over 
southeastern areas by Sunday...especially interior Washington and 
Hancock counties. With this more eastern track, amounts taper 
heading farther west in the forecast area. Due to the consensus 
taking the storm farther east and the concern about just how fast 
temperatures cool as precipitation moves in, will hold off on watch at 
this time. However a more western track can still not be ruled 
out. The other factor that needs to be highlighted is the winds 
which will become quite strong out of the north by Sunday as the 
low intensities in response to main shortwave energy lifting 
north. 


For Sunday, expect another shot of precipitation to move in associated 
with primary shortwave aloft and rapidly deepening surface low 
lifting into the Canadian Maritimes. At this time expect precipitation in 
the form of snow or a rain/snow mix to be focused primarily over 
extreme eastern areas, especially Washington County, with 
additional wind driven snow accumulation possible. Elsewhere the 
big story will be the strong northerly winds and cold 
temperatures...increased winds with this update and have gusts of 
25 to 35 miles per hour for Sunday which may even be conservative. Highs 
Sunday will only be in the 30s. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
precipitation will wind down Sunday night with windy and cold conditions 
continuing for Monday. Temperatures look to moderate heading into 
the middle of next week with the next system tracking farther west 
during this time and likely bringing mainly just some rain 
showers. 


&& 


Aviation /01z Friday through Tuesday/... 
near term: VFR conditions are expected through Friday. 


Short to long term: expect conditions to lower to MVFR and 
eventualy IFR Friday night into Saturday as rain and snow move in 
along with low stratus. Snow or a rain/snow mix may linger into 
Sunday along with very strong northerly winds during this time. 


&& 


Marine... 
near term: no headlines. Winds 10-15 kts will drop back tonight 
into Friday west/some weak ridging moving over the waters. Seas at this time 
running 2-3ft and expected to hold that way into Friday. 


Short to long term: 
expect winds and seas to increase late Saturday into Saturday 
night. By Sunday, strong gale to even storm force winds will be 
possible in addition to wave heights around 10 feet. Conditions 
subside heading into Monday but will still be above Small Craft Advisory levels. 


&& 


Climate...the average temperature so far this month at Bangor is 
52.3 degrees...which is 4.8 degrees above normal. It has been the 
warmest October since 1968.
