Synopsis
High pressure builds into new england through tonight yielding
dry cool weather. Warmer temperatures, gusty winds and more
humid conditions expected Friday ahead of an approaching cold
front. The front may bring a few showers and thunderstorms
Friday night into early Saturday, then large high pressure will
bring dry but cool conditions through the weekend into early
next week. Another warm front may approach late Tuesday into
Wednesday with scattered showers and possibly a few
thunderstorms.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
High pres builds south into new eng as heights rise on northern
periphery of building east coast ridge. However, continued moist
ne flow will likely maintain cloud cover through the morning,
especially across eastern new eng, and some drizzle or a brief
shower is possible over CAPE islands. Developing sunshine in the
west should overspread eastern new eng this afternoon as low
level moisture decreases.

Highs will be mostly in the mid upper 60s, except lower 70s ct
valley where 925 mb temps are milder. NE winds will diminish
over CAPE islands.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Friday
Tonight...

high pres remains in control as it shifts east of new eng
overnight. Nam GFS indicate increasing low level moisture
returning which will likely lead to stratus and patchy fog
developing. Href shows highest probs of stratus and fog in the
interior and can't rule out some patchy drizzle. Otherwise, dry
weather with lows in the 50s.

Friday...

increasing S SW flow develops ahead of approaching cold front
which moves into the eastern lakes toward evening. Expect a mix
of Sun and clouds and becoming breezy in the afternoon.

Instability is nil on fri. Axis of instability and forcing
remain well to the west so a dry day is anticipated. A line of
convection may be moving into western ny toward evening.

Southerly flow and shallow mixing depth will limit heating with
highs mainly in the lower 70s coastal plain and interior
valleys, but humidity will be increasing as dewpoints climb
into the 60s in the afternoon.

Long term Friday night through Wednesday
Highlights...

* a cold front will bring scattered showers and a few
thunderstorms especially across the interior Friday night
* a large high builds across from central canada Saturday
afternoon into Monday with cool but dry conditions
* another frontal system may approach late Monday night or
Tuesday with showers and a few thunderstorms, which may linger
into mid week
overview...

00z model guidance continues to signal a changeable weather
pattern across the northeast u.S. For most if not the entire
long term period. A general, broad steering mid level flow
across the northern tier states will keep weather systems moving
along into early next week. Beyond that, it appears the h5 mass
fields start to amplify as a long wave trough digs across the
western plains states while ridging builds across eastern canada
by around Monday night or Tuesday, though noting some solution
spread amongst the model members.

As high pressure heads east off the eastern seaboard, an
approaching cold front will slide SE Friday night into early
Saturday. Noting decent instability as it shifts into northern
new england, but tends to break down as the front approaches the
region. Noting k indices in the lower 30s and tq values in the
upper teens Fri night. Have mentioned isolated thunder in the
fri night early Sat forecast. However, the energy and
instability outruns the approaching front, and actually weakens
as it passes.

Large high moves in behind the front through the remainder of
the weekend into the start of the work week. Rather cool
conditions, especially moving into Monday morning as another
reinforcing high brings overnight lows in the lower-mid 40s
across the higher inland terrain, ranging to the mid-upper 50s
along the S coast.

Another complex system approaches Monday night or Tuesday, but
model timing with the exit of high in question, which is lending
to model solution spread. May see another round of showers and
even a few thunderstorms, but noting only marginal instability
with this next system.

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.
