Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Synopsis
After a few showers with a cold frontal passage this evening,
drier weather returns through Monday night. Cooler with passing
showers Tuesday afternoon into Tuesday evening as a warm front
approaches. Mainly dry weather for the rest of the week into
Saturday with temperatures averaging above normal. The risk for
showers increases by Sunday.

Near term until 6 am Monday morning
7 pm update...

cold front along the immediate south coast with a band of
showers along this front. These showers will move to the south
of new eng next 1-2 hours as the front continues to push
southward. Otherwise areas of fog over the islands will lift
as winds shift to the nw.

Nw drier flow should lead to clearing through the overnight,
pres rises are relatively meager. Therefore, could be a cool
morning with the possibility of localized decoupling, mins in
the upper 40s to mid 50s.

Short term 6 am Monday morning through Monday night
Tomorrow...

1025mb high pres noses in from the W through the day as modest
mid lvl ridging returns. Dry wx prevails with some diurnal cu
possible. H85 temps near +10c, but mixing may well exceed this
value, therefore expecting widespread mid-high 70s for highs.

A few exceptions, W downsloping should allow typical downslope
locations like the ct and merrimack valleys to reach around 80,
and sea breezes are possible along the immediate coastlines,
holding highs in the lower 70s. Comfortable with low, well mixed
dwpts.

Tomorrow night...

mainly dry as high pres slips e. Only issue will be incoming
mid and high clouds during the am hours. However, the precip
shield from a remnant MCS should hold off until the daylight
hours. Mins in the 50s most locations.

Long term Tuesday through Sunday
Highlights...

* cooler with passing showers Tue into Tue night
* mainly dry weather with above normal temps Wed through sat,
coolest Thursday
* risk of showers increases by Sunday
overview...

zonal flow with weak shortwave passage tue, then northern stream
trough will amplify to the north and east Wed into Thu which will
push a cold front through the region. Rising heights and shortwave
ridging follow Fri into Sat then next northern stream trough
approaches Sunday.

Precipitation...

main focus for wet weather this week will be Tue into Tue night as
shortwave passage with weak warm front approaching from the SW and
moistening column will likely bring some showers during this time
period. Best chance appears to be in the afternoon evening. No
surface instability but marginal elevated instability may support an
isold t-storm late late Tue and Tue evening. Looks dry Wed into sat.

We have a cold front moving through wed, but limited moisture and
low level convergence will likely result in a dry fropa. Increasing
risk of showers by Sunday with approach of next northern stream
trough, but confidence is low due to timing uncertainty.

Temperatures...

coolest day of the week will likely be Tue as sne will be influenced
by clouds and some shower activity on cool side of frontal boundary,
but temps close to seasonable normals. Warmer air returns Wed ahead
of a cold front then a bit cooler post-frontal airmass thu.

Potential for summer warmth with temps into the 80s interior fri-sun.

Aviation 00z Monday through Friday
Forecaster confidence levels...

low - less than 30 percent.

Moderate - 30 to 60 percent.

High - greater than 60 percent.

Short term through Monday night ...

through 06z... Areas of MVFR ifr CAPE cod will improve toVFR
01-03z. Lifr stratus and fog over ack will improve to MVFR
04-06z. Winds shift to NW CAPE islands.

Overnight into Monday... High confidence.VFR. Clearing skies.

Monday night... High confidence. MainlyVFR. Light W winds.

Kbos terminal... Moderate confidence in taf, at issue is the
exact timing for a shra tsra risk mainly 19z through 21z.

Improvement thereafter.

Kbdl terminal... Moderate confidence in taf.

Outlook Tuesday through Friday ... Moderate confidence.

Tuesday:VFR. Chance shra.

Tuesday night: mainlyVFR, with local MVFR possible. Chance

Marine
Forecaster confidence levels...

low - less than 30 percent.

Moderate - 30 to 60 percent.

High - greater than 60 percent.

Short term through Monday night ... High confidence.

Winds will gradually be shifting to the NW all waters late this
afternoon and evening, but should remain below 25kt from now on.

The winds remain below small craft thresholds through tomorrow
night. Seas however were running about 5-7 ft on the SE ocean
waters, so will continue small craft advisory into tomorrow for
these seas, at which point they too should drop below
thresholds.

A few showers cross the waters through the early evening hours.

Otherwise, lingering fog possible mainly across the SE waters,
these too should lift during the overnight.

Outlook Tuesday through Friday ... Moderate confidence.

Tuesday through Tuesday night: winds less than 25 kt. Chance of
rain showers.

Wednesday: winds less than 25 kt. Slight chance of rain
showers.

Wednesday night through Thursday: winds less than 25 kt. Seas
locally approaching 5 ft.

Thursday night: winds less than 25 kt.

Friday: winds less than 25 kt. Areas of seas approaching 5 ft.

Fire weather
Spotty locations received as much as 0.5 inches of
precipitation this weekend, but several locations received
less. Given fuels were dry, this may not have been enough to
fully moisten them. Rh values Monday will drop as low as 15-25
percent inland, but winds should remain light out of the nw,
around 10mph most of the day.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
