National Weather Service Caribou ME
614pm EDT Fri July 20 2018
Synopsis: High pressure will exit to the east Saturday. Low pressure will lift north across the region Sunday.
Near Term - Through Saturday
6:14 pm update: Currently a clear sky across the FA with just a few cumulus that developed across the elevated terrain and a wisp or two or cirrus. Visible satellite pictures show an area of low clouds along the southern tip of Nova Scotia that are about 100 nm from the Downeast coast. Some of these low clouds may work into the Downeast coast ater midnight, and it is also possible that some low clouds and fog develop in situ late tonight along the coast. No significant changes to the ongoing forecast at this time.
Previous discussion: High pressure will cross the region tonight then exit to the east Saturday. Skies will remain mostly clear across northern and central portions of the forecast area tonight through Saturday. Across Downeast areas, expect mostly clear skies much of tonight. However, cloud cover could increase later tonight with low clouds and fog moving inland from the Gulf of Maine which could persist early Saturday. The low clouds will retreat offshore later Saturday morning, leaving mostly sunny skies from late morning through the afternoon. Low temperatures tonight will range from the mid to upper 50s across northern/central areas, to the mid 50s Downeast. High temperatures Saturday will range from the mid to upper 80s north. Temperatures will be cooler across Downeast areas with onshore winds from the Gulf of Maine. High temperatures across interior Downeast areas will range from around 80 to the lower 80s, with temperatures generally ranging through the 70s along the Downeast coast
Short Term - Saturday Night Through Monday
Subtropical low pressure moving north across eastern or central NY Sat night will drive clouds north across the state. Precip will push northeast into the CWA by mid-morning Sun, with high- end chance to likely POPs across much of the central and southern CWA during the afternoon. Precip may die off a bit Sunday night, but kept chance POPs across most of the CWA as there will be ample moisture coming onshore. The upper ridge may build back west a bit during the day Mon, leading to reducing POPs over Downeast. However, the axis of action appears likely to shift inland, especially over the northwestern higher terrain, during the afternoon Mon. Expect highs in the low to mid 70s Sun, and in the mid 70s to around 80 Mon
Long Term - Monday Night Through Friday
Pattern remains active for much of the long term as the upper trough remains off to the west through at least Thurs. POPs Tuesday and Wednesday highest for central and NWern areas. A wave moving across the area Thurs could spread a better chance of precipitation back toward the coast. Models seem to be keying in on the upper trough finally starting to shift east on Fri, pushing through a front, with some drier air and likely lowering POPs for later Fri into Fri night.
Near Term: Winds/seas are expected to remain below small craft advisory levels tonight through Saturday. Visibilities will be reduced in patchy fog later tonight through Saturday.
Short Term: Light wind and seas under 4 feet will continue through Sat night. Winds will increase during the day Sunday and remain moderate breezes with gusts up toward 20kts through Mon. Seas will build Sun, and may exceed Small Craft Advisory criteria Sunday night into Mon
