Synopsis: A warm front is crossing the area early this morning, and will be followed by a cold front late today. A secondary cold front will cross the area Monday followed by high pressure on Tuesday.
Near Term - Through Tonight
A warm front early this morning is bringing a round of light to moderate rain. The more moderate rain is from the Central Highlands into Downeast. This rain will taper off from west to east by mid-morning. However, with a fairly moist onshore flow in place, don't expect much if any clearing today except perhaps north/west of the mountains into the North Woods.
Attention then turns to afternoon convection as a cold front approaches from the west. West of Bangor and into Quebec there will be a fair amount of CAPE up to about 1000 J/kg with surface-based convection firing just ahead of the cold front. Storms move into Moosehead Lake region around midday then progress east early and mid afternoon. However, while the storms will be surface-based around Moosehead Lake, as they move east into the more stable marine layer, they will weaken. They could hold together to places like Bangor and Caribou, but will fall apart as they head further east toward Eastport. Although most places will get wet from the showers and storms this afternoon, some places may stay dry from the hit and miss convection, and it doesn't look like an all-afternoon event for those with outdoor plans.
Cold front moving through late afternoon and evening will gradually dry things out with some clearing late in the night
Short Term - Monday Through Tuesday Night
A cold front will approach from the northwest early in the day on Monday and move across the region during the afternoon. This system is expected to produce some showers across the area as it moves through. High pressure will build in behind the cold front Monday Night and crest over the region early Tuesday. Expect mostly sunny conditions on Tuesday. Clouds are expected to increase Tuesday Night as a warm front approaches with rain overspreading the region ahead of the warm front
Long Term - Wednesday Through Saturday
Rain is expected on Wednesday and Thursday as an area of low pressure moves from west to east along the warm front. Another cold front is then expected to move across the area on Friday with more showers expected. High pressure is then expected to build in from the west on Friday.
Near Term: Small craft advisory in effect this morning with a warm front moving through. Looks very marginal with conditions only barely reaching small craft levels, then improving back below small craft this afternoon and tonight
Short Term: Have used the Nam to initialize winds however will reduce model winds by 15 percent due to cold sea surface temperatures (Mid 40s). Expect southerly wind wave becoming northwesterly, is expected to be the primary wave system on Monday. Southerly wind wave will develop again on Tuesday. A southeasterly fetch will develop across the Gulf of Maine on Wednesday
