NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Caribou ME 
1207 am EDT sun Sep 21 2014 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will move east of the area tonight. A cold front 
will approach from the west Sunday into Sunday night as weak low 
pressure tracking north from the middle Atlantic passes to our east. 
The cold front will cross the area Monday. 


&& 


Near term /through Sunday/... 
1207 am update...most of the shower activity across northern 
Maine has shifted east into New Brunswick. This will leave the 
area mostly dry for the overnight hours. Temperatures are anywhere 
from 10 to 25 degrees warmer than this time last night due to 
southerly flow. Only minor adjustments to the ongoing forecast 
based on the latest radar trends and observations. 


Previous discussion... 
fog possible closer to the coast overnight. Temperatures will 
generally stay in the low to middle 50s across most spots tonight 
with showers mainly affecting northern portions of the region. 
Model guidance continues to indicate the frontal boundary and 
upper level shortwave very slowly progressing toward the east 
overnight into Sunday. The guidance is keeping the secondary low 
that develops well south of the region at this point. However some 
moisture associated with that surface feature will stream out 
ahead bringing chance probability of precipitation mainly across the western portions of 
the forecast area by Sunday afternoon and increase from west to east through 
the rest of the day Sunday. Given persistent southerly flow 
expecting temperatures to make it into the upper 60s to lower 70s 
across the forecast area. 


&& 


Short term /Sunday night through Tuesday/... 
dtmnstc 12z models...are still showing considerable model to model 
and run to run variability with forecast 6 hrly qpfs for Sun night into 
Monday as separate S/waves from the the lower Great Lakes and the Lower 
Middle Atlantic states progressively move east-northeast. At this time...it appears that the 
more southern surface low with the middle Atlantic shortwave could intercept some of 
the Atlantic moisture that would have been destined to advect into the 
surface low of the northern shortwave from the Great Lakes...resulting in a gap 
of lesser rainfall over much of the forecast area. For now we used the 09z sref 
run to gap some of these dtmnstc run to run model differences... 
resulting in a somewhat smoothed pop distribution between quantitative precipitation forecast 
bullseyes north and S of the forecast area...but there could be areas of 
relatively spotty rainfall if some of the latest dtmnstc model runs 
verify. After mild overnight low Sun night...hi temperatures Monday will show a 
little greater southeast to northwest gradient due to a cold front traversing 
across the region during daylight hours. 


Otherwise...Sun night into Monday will remain unsettled across northern/central 
portions of the forecast area as whats left of the Great Lakes shortwave crosses these 
portions of the forecast area. Subsequently...we kept cloud cover higher over the north and 
central portions of the forecast area with a slight chance of showers. Temperatures will be 
cooler Monday night and Tuesday with continued cool low level advcn...with SC and 
northwest winds preventing much in the way of radiational cooling Monday 
night. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Saturday/... 
the latter half of next week will be dominated by high pressure. As 
such, expect a stretch of cool and dry weather. A back door cold 
front makes a run at the region from the northeast on Friday, but it 
looks to be a dry front that only produces some clouds. Temperatures 
will warm gradually through the period, with highs to reach above 
seasonal normals by the end of the week. 


&& 


Aviation /03z Sunday through Thursday/... 
near term: there will be the occasional MVFR conditions across the 
north this evening especially with heavier showers. IFR conditions 
will be possible particularly at the southern taf sites where low 
stratus and fog will be possible overnight. Conditions will 
eventually improve to VFR/MVFR through the day Sunday. 


Short term: msly low MVFR and IFR low clgs and visibility with showers will 
predominate the taf sites Sun night through Monday...with conditions 
improving to VFR for downeast sites and at least MVFR northern taf 
sites Monday night. All sites should be VFR on Tuesday continuing through Thursday. 


&& 


Marine... 
near term: Small Craft Advisory for seas continues with seas 
expected to increase to 5 feet overnight. Otherwise visible will be 
reduced across portions of the coastal waters due to fog overnight 
tonight. 


Short term: WV heights build to Small Craft Advisory and above min Small Craft Advisory criteria over msly 
the outer waters Sun night through Monday with a wswrly wind fetch which 
will msly feature wind speeds just below Small Craft Advisory criteria of 25 knots. WV 
heights begin to subside late Monday night to below Small Craft Advisory criteria over the 
outer waters on Tuesday as winds shift to more offshore...shorter 
fetch northwest wind direction. Went with about 90 percent of ww3 WV 
guidance for this forecast update. 


&& 


Car watches/warnings/advisories... 
ME...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas until 8 am EDT Sunday 
for anz050-051.
