000 FXUS61 KCAR 281924 AFDCAR AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE CARIBOU ME ISSUED BY NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GRAY ME 324 PM EDT TUE OCT 28 2014 .SYNOPSIS...
-- Changed Discussion --
A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM PASSING TO THE NORTH AND WEST OF THE REGION WILL DRAG A WEAK WARM FRONT ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA TONIGHT...ALTHOUGH LITTLE IN THE WAY OF PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED FROM THIS FRONTAL BOUNDARY. RELATIVELY QUIET WEATHER THEN SETS UP FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE WEEK. THE BIGGER STORY WILL OCCUR THIS WEEKEND. LOW PRESSURE MOVING UP THE COAST WILL DRAG COLD AIR INTO THE REGION AS HIGHS ON SUNDAY WILL STRUGGLE TO GET OUT OF THE 30S AT MOST LOCATIONS. PRECIPITATION WITH THIS STORM IS STILL VERY UNCERTAIN THOUGH.

WEAK WARM FRONT MOVES THROUGH TONIGHT. EXPECT SOME SCATTERED SHOWERS WITH THE SYSTEM AND OVERCAST SKIES. TEMPERATURES SHOULD BE SEASONABLE.

&& .SHORT TERM /6 AM WEDNESDAY MORNING THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/...

LOW PRESSURE MOVING WELL TO THE NORTH OF THE REGION WILL DRAG ASSOCIATED COLD FRONT ACROSS THE REGION. EXPECT SCATTERED PRECIPITATION WITH THE SYSTEM...ALTHOUGH NOTHING TOO ORGANIZED.

&& .LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/...
-- Changed Discussion --
ALL EYES WILL BE ON THE POTENTIAL FOR THE WEEKEND STORM. MODELS ARE IN FAIRLY GOOD AGREEMENT WITH SOME OF THE DETAILS...BUT CERTAINLY NOT ALL. THE EURO BRINGS THE SYSTEM MUCH CLOSER TO THE COAST THAN THE GFS DOES. LOW PRESSURE IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP SATURDAY NIGHT OFF THE MID-ATLANTIC COAST AND BEGIN TO TREK NORTH AND EAST. BY 12Z SUNDAY MORNING THE EURO HAS THE SYSTEM JUST OUTSIDE OF THE BENCHMARK...WHILE THE GFS HAS THE SYSTEM SEVERAL HUNDRED MILES FURTHER EAST. OBVIOUSLY...THE EURO SOLUTION WOULD HAVE THE MOST IMPACT. IT IS STILL QUITE FAR OUT THOUGH AND WILL BE THE FOCUS OF THE WEATHER FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS.
