AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE CARIBOU ME
817 AM EDT THU JUL 2 2015

.SYNOPSIS...
A COLD FRONT WILL SLOWLY CROSS THE REGION TODAY. HIGH PRESSURE
WILL BUILD ACROSS THE REGION TONIGHT INTO SATURDAY. ANOTHER
COLD FRONT WILL CROSS THE REGION SATURDAY NIGHT INTO SUNDAY.
&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/...
UPDATE...
HAVE ALLOWED THE DENSE FOG ADVISORY TO EXPIRE WITH THIS UPDATE.
OTHERWISE...NO CHANGES.

PREVIOUS DISCUSSION...
LOW PRESSURE WILL TRACK NORTHWEST OF MAINE TODAY...SLOWLY DRAWING
A COLD FRONT ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA. AT THE SAME TIME...AN UPPER
LEVEL TROF WILL APPROACH FROM THE WEST. EXPECT PARTLY SUNNY/MOSTLY
CLOUDY SKIES ALONG WITH THE POSSIBILITY OF AN ISOLATED SHOWER
ACROSS NORTHERN AREAS THIS MORNING...WITH GENERALLY PARTLY SUNNY
SKIES THIS AFTERNOON. AFTER THE FOG DISSIPATES...EXPECT
PARTLY/MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES DOWNEAST. SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE WILL
BUILD EAST ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA TONIGHT WHILE THE UPPER TROF
CROSSES THE REGION. MOISTURE WITH THE UPPER TROF WILL SUPPORT
PARTLY CLOUDY SKIES ACROSS NORTHERN AREAS TONIGHT...WITH MOSTLY
CLEAR SKIES DOWNEAST. HIGH TEMPERATURES TODAY WILL RANGE FROM
AROUND 70 TO THE LOWER 70S NORTH...TO THE UPPER 70S INTERIOR
DOWNEAST WITH LOWER TO MID 70S ALONG THE DOWNEAST COAST. LOW
TEMPERATURES TONIGHT WILL RANGE FROM THE UPPER 40S TO AROUND 50
NORTH...TO AROUND 50 TO THE LOWER 50S DOWNEAST.
&&

.SHORT TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/...
DRY AND WARM FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. A WEAK UPPER LEVEL TROUGH WILL
GRAZE NORTHERN MAINE ON FRIDAY, BRINGING PARTLY CLOUDY SKIES IN
THE NORTH. MOSTLY SUNNY ELSEWHERE FRIDAY, WITH HIGHS IN THE MID TO
UPPER 70S AND COMFORTABLY LOW DEWPOINTS.

AS WE HEAD INTO LATE SATURDAY AND SATURDAY NIGHT, AN UPPER TROUGH
BEGINS TO APPROACH FROM THE WEST, BUT LOOKS LIKE ITS TIMING WILL
HOLD OFF THE BETTER CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND STORMS UNTIL SUNDAY.
STILL, PUT IN SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS LATE IN THE DAY AND INTO
SATURDAY NIGHT IN THE FAR NORTH IN CASE ITS TIMING SPEEDS UP A
BIT. SATURDAY THE 4TH LOOKS QUITE WARM WITH HIGHS AROUND 80. A
TOUCH MUGGIER THAN FRIDAY, BUT STILL PRETTY COMFORTABLE. DRY
SATURDAY EXCEPT FOR A SMALL CHANCE OF A SHOWER FAR NORTH/NORTHWEST
LATE IN THE DAY AND INTO THE EVENING, WITH MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES.
&&

.LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
SUNDAY LOOKING LIKE THE INFERIOR DAY OF THE TWO THIS WEEKEND.
HOWEVER, THERE WILL STILL BE A FAIR AMOUNT OF SUNSHINE (PARTLY
CLOUDY SKIES) AND WARM TEMPERATURES (HIGHS IN THE MID 70S TO LOW
80S). THE CATCH IS, A COLD FRONT WILL BE MOVING THROUGH FROM
NORTHWEST TO SOUTHEAST. NOT MUCH MOISTURE TO WORK WITH, BUT
INSTABILITY APPEARS SUFFICIENT TO IGNITE SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS
IN THE AFTERNOON. THERE ARE SOME MODEL DISAGREEMENTS IN HOW DEEP
THE UPPER TROUGH IS AND EXACTLY WHERE THE COLD FRONT SETS UP,
WHICH WILL DETERMINE THE STRENGTH OF THE STORMS AND WHAT PART OF
THE FORECAST AREA THEY FORM.

FRONT APPEARS TO MOVE JUST FAR ENOUGH EAST TO WHERE MONDAY WILL BE
DRY. TUESDAY LIKELY DRY AS WELL. WARM MONDAY AND TUESDAY WITH
HIGHS AROUND 80 AND SOME PLACES POSSIBLY WARMER. SOUTHERLY FLOW
BEGINS TO INCREASE TUESDAY NIGHT AND WEDNESDAY AS WE GET INTO A
JUICIER AIRMASS, WITH A CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND STORMS RETURNING
WEDNESDAY.

.AVIATION /12Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...
NEAR TERM: VARIABLE CONDITIONS...RANGING FROM VFR TO LIFR...WILL
OCCUR ACROSS THE REGION EARLY THIS MORNING. THE LOWEST
VISIBILITIES WILL OCCUR ACROSS DOWNEAST AREAS WITH FOG...THOUGH
CONDITIONS ARE NOW IMPROVING...WITH RESTRICTIONS ACROSS NORTHERN
AREAS MOSTLY DUE TO CEILINGS. CONDITIONS WILL IMPROVE TO VFR
LEVELS ACROSS THE ENTIRE FORECAST AREA THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF
THE MORNING HOURS. VFR CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED ACROSS THE ENTIRE
REGION TONIGHT.

SHORT TERM: VFR FRIDAY THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT. POSSIBLE MVFR IN
SCATTERED SHOWERS/STORMS SUNDAY, BUT PREDOMINATE VFR SUNDAY. VFR

501 AM EDT THU JUL 2 2015

.SYNOPSIS...
A COLD FRONT WILL SLOWLY CROSS THE REGION TODAY. HIGH PRESSURE
WILL BUILD ACROSS THE REGION TONIGHT INTO SATURDAY. A COLD FRONT
WILL CROSS THE REGION SATURDAY NIGHT INTO SUNDAY.
&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/...
LOW PRESSURE WILL TRACK NORTHWEST OF MAINE TODAY...SLOWLY DRAWING
A COLD FRONT ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA. AT THE SAME TIME...AN UPPER
LEVEL TROF WILL APPROACH FROM THE WEST. EXPECT PARTLY SUNNY/MOSTLY
CLOUDY SKIES ALONG WITH THE POSSIBILITY OF AN ISOLATED SHOWER
ACROSS NORTHERN AREAS THIS MORNING...WITH GENERALLY PARTLY SUNNY
SKIES THIS AFTERNOON. A DENSE FOG ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 AM
ACROSS DOWNEAST AREAS...WITH IMPROVING CONDITIONS OVER THE NEXT
SEVERAL HOURS. AFTER THE FOG DISSIPATES...EXPECT PARTLY/MOSTLY
SUNNY SKIES DOWNEAST. SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD EAST ACROSS
THE FORECAST AREA TONIGHT WHILE THE UPPER TROF CROSSES THE
REGION. MOISTURE WITH THE UPPER TROF WILL SUPPORT PARTLY CLOUDY
SKIES ACROSS NORTHERN AREAS TONIGHT...WITH MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES
DOWNEAST. HIGH TEMPERATURES TODAY WILL RANGE FROM AROUND 70 TO
THE LOWER 70S NORTH...TO THE UPPER 70S INTERIOR DOWNEAST WITH
LOWER TO MID 70S ALONG THE DOWNEAST COAST. LOW TEMPERATURES
TONIGHT WILL RANGE FROM THE UPPER 40S TO AROUND 50 NORTH...TO
AROUND 50 TO THE LOWER 50S DOWNEAST.
&&

.SHORT TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/...
DRY AND WARM FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. A WEAK UPPER LEVEL TROUGH WILL
GRAZE NORTHERN MAINE ON FRIDAY, BRINGING PARTLY CLOUDY SKIES IN
THE NORTH. MOSTLY SUNNY ELSEWHERE FRIDAY, WITH HIGHS IN THE MID TO
UPPER 70S AND COMFORTABLY LOW DEWPOINTS.

AS WE HEAD INTO LATE SATURDAY AND SATURDAY NIGHT, AN UPPER TROUGH
BEGINS TO APPROACH FROM THE WEST, BUT LOOKS LIKE ITS TIMING WILL
HOLD OFF THE BETTER CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND STORMS UNTIL SUNDAY.
STILL, PUT IN SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS LATE IN THE DAY AND INTO
SATURDAY NIGHT IN THE FAR NORTH IN CASE ITS TIMING SPEEDS UP A
BIT. SATURDAY THE 4TH LOOKS QUITE WARM WITH HIGHS AROUND 80. A
TOUCH MUGGIER THAN FRIDAY, BUT STILL PRETTY COMFORTABLE. DRY
SATURDAY EXCEPT FOR A SMALL CHANCE OF A SHOWER FAR NORTH/NORTHWEST
LATE IN THE DAY AND INTO THE EVENING, WITH MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES.
&&

.LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
SUNDAY LOOKING LIKE THE INFERIOR DAY OF THE TWO THIS WEEKEND.
HOWEVER, THERE WILL STILL BE A FAIR AMOUNT OF SUNSHINE (PARTLY
CLOUDY SKIES) AND WARM TEMPERATURES (HIGHS IN THE MID 70S TO LOW
80S). THE CATCH IS, A COLD FRONT WILL BE MOVING THROUGH FROM
NORTHWEST TO SOUTHEAST. NOT MUCH MOISTURE TO WORK WITH, BUT
INSTABILITY APPEARS SUFFICIENT TO IGNITE SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS
IN THE AFTERNOON. THERE ARE SOME MODEL DISAGREEMENTS IN HOW DEEP
THE UPPER TROUGH IS AND EXACTLY WHERE THE COLD FRONT SETS UP,
WHICH WILL DETERMINE THE STRENGTH OF THE STORMS AND WHAT PART OF
THE FORECAST AREA THEY FORM.

FRONT APPEARS TO MOVE JUST FAR ENOUGH EAST TO WHERE MONDAY WILL BE
DRY. TUESDAY LIKELY DRY AS WELL. WARM MONDAY AND TUESDAY WITH
HIGHS AROUND 80 AND SOME PLACES POSSIBLY WARMER. SOUTHERLY FLOW
BEGINS TO INCREASE TUESDAY NIGHT AND WEDNESDAY AS WE GET INTO A
JUICIER AIRMASS, WITH A CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND STORMS RETURNING
WEDNESDAY.
&&

.AVIATION /09Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...
NEAR TERM: VARIABLE CONDITIONS...RANGING FROM VFR TO VLIFR...WILL
OCCUR ACROSS THE REGION EARLY THIS MORNING. THE LOWEST
VISIBILITIES WILL OCCUR ACROSS DOWNEAST AREAS WITH FOG...WITH
RESTRICTIONS ACROSS NORTHERN AREAS MOSTLY DUE TO CEILINGS.
CONDITIONS WILL IMPROVE TO VFR LEVELS ACROSS THE ENTIRE FORECAST
AREA THROUGH THE MORNING HOURS. VFR CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED ACROSS
THE ENTIRE REGION TONIGHT.

SHORT TERM: VFR FRIDAY THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT. POSSIBLE MVFR IN
SCATTERED SHOWERS/STORMS SUNDAY, BUT PREDOMINATE VFR SUNDAY. VFR
MONDAY.
&&

.MARINE...
NEAR TERM: WINDS/SEAS ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN BELOW SMALL CRAFT

REDUCED IN FOG THIS MORNING.

AIR NORTH ACROSS THE AREA. THE UPPER LEVEL SHORTWAVE ASSOCIATED
WITH THIS LOW COMBINED WITH A SURFACE TROUGH WILL PUSH SHOWERS
ACROSS THE AREA, MAINLY OVER THE WEST THIS MORNING THEN OVER THE

LIKELY PRODUCE SOME FOG DOWNEAST EARLY TODAY. SOME FOG MAY LINGER
