Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Areal Flood Warning  Statement as of 10:12 PM EDT on April 17, 2014


... The Flood Warning remains in effect until 500 am EDT Friday for
extreme southwestern Penobscot County...

* at 900 PM EDT Thursday law enforcement in Penobscot County report
some improvement during the evening hours with the cooler
temperatures but are not confident that additional problems will
not redevelop.

* The Lincoln street bridge is closed in Dexter as a culvert let go
and caused significant damage to the Road earlier today. Due to
the high water levels there is the possibility that additional
flooding could occur with little or no notice or that other
culverts could be pushed up and release water.

A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or has been reported.
Stream rises will be slow and flash flooding is not expected.
However... all interested parties should take necessary precautions
immediately.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

Penobscot... northern Penobscot and southern Penobscot. In

* Until 8 am EDT Friday

conditions across the region... however many roads remain
closed due to flooding.

now showing open water. There is still solid ice south of Van
Buren to Hamlin with some open water. Flooding is occurring in
areas near St Francis. There is an ice jam along the Aroostook
that is impacting Oxbow Road.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Caribou ME 
1032 PM EDT Thursday Apr 17 2014 


Synopsis... 
cold high pressure currently over New England today will progress 
east over the Maritimes tonight into Friday. A trough of low 
press will move east across the area Saturday.&& 


Near term /through Friday/... 
update: high pressure centered just east of the area at this time west/ just some high 
thin clouds crossing the area. Other than Hydro issues as detailed 
below...weather pattern appears quiet through Friday. No changes at this time... 


Very quiet weather conditions are expected to continue across our 
County Warning Area with a strong high pressure affecting the state through 
tonight and most of tomorrow. This ridge will keep conditions dry 
and cool through most of the day tomorrow. Min temperatures tonight 
should not be as cold as last night...but still chilly with 
readings ranging from the teens northwest to the middle and upper 
20s downeast. Temperatures will rebound into the 40s and lower 50s across 
most of our forecast area for highs on Friday.&& 


Short term /Friday night through Sunday/... 
a shortwave will then track eastward across the area Friday night 
into Saturday...producing scattered rain and snow showers across 
the northern half of our County Warning Area. This system will quickly depart to the 
east and give way to another high pressure system from 
Canada...resulting in dry conditions Sat night and Sunday. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Thursday/... 
high pressure will move offshore Monday night and a warmer 
southwest flow will develop ahead of a weak cold front sagging 
southward from Quebec. Clouds will increase later in the night. 
Lows will generally be in the low 30s with a few upper 20s 
possible in the normally colder locations. The cold front will 
move into northern zones during the morning with just a few 
hundredths of an inch of rainfall. Highs will reach the upper 50s 
to near 60f for southern portions of the forecast area and lower 
50s north where frontal cloud cover will be denser. As the parent 
low fills in Quebec...the cold front will also weaken and stall 
across the forecast area. Some clearing will occur overnight and allow 
temperatures to fall into the middle to upper 30s. 


Another low pressure system will move along the stalled front 
towards the forecast area on Tuesday. This low will deepen during 
the day as upper level forcing increases and it will slowly track 
into the region on Tuesday night. A very strong upper level jet 
approaching from the northwest will cause the low to further 
deepen on Tuesday night into Wednesday and then become a cut-off 
low off the New England coast. This will keep clouds and rain in 
the area through Thursday with high in the low 50s and lows in the 
upper 30s. High pressure will finally return later Thursday and 
build Thursday night. Rainfall amounts could add up to well over 
an inch from Tuesday night into Thursday morning and keep Hydro 
concerns going through the week as remaining snow melts and keeps 
rivers elevated. Am leaning towards the European model (ecmwf) solution with the 
concern that the GFS moves the cut-off eastward too rapidly. 


&& 


Aviation /03z Friday through Tuesday/... 
near term: VFR conditions are expected through the near term 
across our entire forecast area due to dry area associated with a 
strong high pressure system. 


Short term: a shortwave will bring moisture and lowering 
ceilings/visibilities to much of the area Friday night and Saturday...with 
the best chance of MVFR/IFR conditions across the northern third of 
the state. Conditions will improve Sat night and Sunday. 


&& 


Marine... 
near term: east winds tonight will become srly on Friday ahead of 
the next disturbance moving across northern main. However winds and 
waves should not be that strong so have let the Small Craft Advisory from this 
morning expire. 


Short term: winds will veer out of the northwest by Saturday as a 
cold front moves through. But wind speeds should remain fairly 
light. 


&& 


Hydrology... 
update: have dropped the Flood Warning for interests along the 
Stillwater river in Orono. Calls to the u Maine Campus police at 
Orono and one of the residents who earlier reported significant 
flooding yielded reports of just minor nuisance type flooding at this time. 


Penobscot so and Aroostook Ema confirm continuing concerns at Dexter 
(culvert flooding) in southern Penobscot County and the St Francis area 
(ice jam) in northern Aroostook County respectively so will continue both 
these warnings at this time. 


Will continue the Flood Watch for Aroostook and Penobscot counties as well... 


Previous disc: the Flood Watch for the hsa has been cancelled for all 
but Aroostook and Penobscot counties where there are still ongoing 
flood warnings. Calls to emergency managers and gages led to 
canceling the remainder of the watches. 


The highlights at this time include a Flood Warning along the Stillwater 
river in Orono where some houses had their basements flooded this 
morning and water flowed over a portion of the parking lot adjacent 
to the river. A Flood Warning for the Dexter area where there has 
been flooding in town and a culvert let go. A Flood Warning is also 
in effect along the St John river in the St Francis area. 


No significant rainfall is expected during the next few days. 
Rainfall amounts expected to be light <0... in most areas 
< 0.10" with a frontal passage late Friday night into Sat. 
Temperatures will be seasonable over the next few days with 
temperatures dropping below freezing at night which will cause for 
a more controlled released of snow melt across northern and western 
Maine.
