NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Caribou ME 
1239 PM EDT Tuesday Jul 7 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will move east of the region today...bringing warm 
and more humid conditions. A cold front will approach the region 
from the west tonight and cross the region on Wednesday. High 
pressure will then build toward the region from the Great Lakes 
Wednesday night and Thursday. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
1225 PM update: outside of forecast hrly temperatures and dewpoints through the 
remainder of the day across the region...no sig changes. Noon obsvd 
temperatures showed several lctns over downeast ME already at or just above 
forecast hi temperatures in this area...resulting in US raising hi temperatures 
there 2 to 3 degree f and re-doing forecast hrly temperatures where we show a 
lvlg off of temperatures and then a gradual drop due to the strengthening 
sea breeze over downeast areas. Elsewhere...temperatures have risen a 
little faster then the previous forecast...but the rate of rise should level 
off some into the middle to late afternoon. 


Orgnl disc: high pressure ridge currently across the region will 
slide east today west/a southerly return flow setting up. The 
southerly flow will bring warm and more humid air into the region. 
The County Warning Area will remain mainly dry into the afternoon west/the exception 
of the far western areas as some showers and perhaps a thunderstorm will 
approach the region out ahead of the main cold front. Some of the 
mesoscale models including the latest nam12,WRF and hrrr 3km show 
some scattered activity moving into western Maine by later this 
afternoon. Thunderstorms activity will be limited due to warm temperatures aloft 
and a cap. 7 to 8c at 700mbs and -8c at 500mb. Can't rule out an 
isolated thunderstorm as some sb/MUCAPE is there(500-800 joules). Lacking 
factor initially will be the deep moisture and significant 
forcing. Afternoon temperatures are forecast to reach into the 80s 
once again today. Downeast and the coastal communities will be 
cooler west/the onshore wind. 


The cold front is expected to move into western Maine later 
tonight west/showers and perhaps some thunderstorms. Some fog is possible 
especially across the interior downeast and coastal regions. A 
stable layer is in place in the llvls west/elevated cape above that 
layer. Precipitable waters  are forecast to reach near 2 inches west/a k index of 
35 across the central and downeast areas. There is some decent 
shear at 0-6km of 25 kts and an increasing SW flow just above the 
stable layer. Further north and west, parameters are not as high. 
Decided to keep the mention of thunderstorms in there through early 
Wednesday morning. If the parameters for the central and downeast 
hold, then some heavy downpours and gusty winds are possible 
especially in ant thunderstorms. It will be a humid night west/overnight lows 
in the 60s. 


&& 


Short term /Wednesday through Thursday/... 
the cold front will cross the region early Wednesday. Showers and 
isolated thunderstorms will accompany the passage of the front 
Wednesday morning followed by partial clearing during Wednesday 
afternoon. Despite the passage of the cold front high temperatures on 
Wednesday will still be in the middle to upper 70s across the north 
and lower 80 central and down east. Expect mainly clear skies 
Wednesday night followed by a mainly sunny day on Thursday as high 
pressure builds east. Low temperatures Wednesday night will be in 
the low 50s north and middle to upper 50s down east. Highs on 
Thursday will be in the middle to upper 70s. 


&& 


Long term /Thursday night through Monday/... 
Thursday night will be mainly clear with lows in the 50s. 
Friday will be mainly dry although a weak upper disturbance could 
bring a slight chance of a shower to the region Friday afternoon. 
A more potent disturbance will bring the chance of showers and 
thunderstorms Saturday afternoon. A weak upper disturbance could 
bring a shower on Sunday but a more significant system will bring 
a better chance for showers and thunderstorms on Monday. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Tuesday through Sunday/... 
near term: VFR conditions will prevail into the evening for all 
the terminals after some MVFR visibility this morning. Fog and stratus 
are expected later tonight west/conditions dropping to MVFR by late 
evening and then IFR overnight. 


Short term: MVFR/IFR conditions early Wednesday in showers/isolated 
thunderstorm/ptachy fog. Conditions improve to VFR Wednesday afternoon. 
Mainly VFR Thursday through Sunday. 


&& 


Marine... 
near term: winds/seas are forecast to remain below Small Craft Advisory levels. S 
winds will increase tonight 10 to 15 knots west/gusts to 20 k's. Wave 
heights will increase to 3-5 feet which is supported by the local 
wave model. 


Short term: wind/seas will remain below Small Craft Advisory levels through the 
period.
