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 for massachusetts and rhode island coastal waters.. High pressure builds across the waters into this evening, shifting east on Wednesday. An area of low pressure follows for Wednesday night skirting south coastal new england with rain and possibly lower visibility. Seasonable and dry weather follows with return high pressure the remainder of the week, while a warm front lifts north across the waters over the weekend.

Synopsis
Dry weather is expected tonight and Wednesday as high pressure
builds over new england. Showers are likely Wednesday night,
especially south of the mass pike, as low pressure passes
offshore. High pressure from canada brings dry weather
Thursday and Friday. A cold front them brings a chance of
showers over the weekend, followed by dry weather early next
week.

Near term until 6 am Wednesday morning
10 pm update...

high clouds are spilling into the region moving se, stretching
from the berkshires to the ri coast. Clouds will continue to
move into the area, likely becoming more widespread over the
next couple hours.

Lowered min temps for tonight given that we should stay mostly
clear overnight and sites will have the chance to radiate across
the region. Temps in the upper 40s are possible tonight,
especially in upper connecticut river valley along the 495
corridor.

Otherwise, previous forecast remains on track.

Previous discussion...

any lingering diurnal clouds will dissipate toward sunset,
giving way to clear skies and diminishing winds tonight. This
will allow for good radiational cooling away from coast. Sided
closer to cooler MOS guidance which gives lows in upper 40s to
mid 50s. Airmass remains dry enough to preclude mention of
patchy fog.

Short term 6 am Wednesday morning through Wednesday night
High pressure over sne heads offshore in afternoon, resulting in
s SW flow across region. Airmass remains dry as seen in model cross
sections so just expect some diurnal clouds to form, but overall
plenty of sunshine. Highs should run a few degrees cooler than
today, ranging from mid 70s on south coast, cape, and islands to the
mid 80s inland.

Models in good agreement on arrival of showers Wednesday night as
short wave passes and weak surface low pass south of new england.

Main issue is how far north do the showers extend into sne. Right
now we are most confident for ct, ri, and SE ma which come under
influence of best theta-e advection and lower level convergence
moisture transport. Blended in high-res arw WRF which gives as much
as 0.50 to 0.75" of rain. Farther north, it will be a battle with
dry air pushing down from northern new england, so it's possible
areas along and north of mass pike remain dry.

Long term Thursday through Tuesday
Highlights...

* lingering showers, south coast on Thursday
* dry and seasonable on Friday
* unsettled weather for the weekend
overview...

12z models show good agreement with the flow pattern evolution
during the long term increasing forecaster confidence. Northern
stream flow will feature a persistent upper ridge over central
canada with a couple of frontal waves moving across the central u.S.

New england will remain on the edge of an upper level trough over
the maritimes keeping the region in northwest flow. Passing wave
from the midwest will impact southern new england over the weekend
before northwest flow returns for next week. As an fyi, the canadian
model indicates the formation of a nor'easter early next week but
this is not supported by its own ensemble mean nor the GFS and ecmwf
solutions.

Details...

a few lingering showers on Thursday morning thanks to passing wave
to the south. Conditions will improve in the afternoon with
seasonable temperatures. High pressure on Friday will lead to dry
weather and temperatures near normal. Sea breeze potential possible.

Unsettled weather returns for the weekend as a low pressure from the
great lakes passing through northern new england. Associated warm
and cold front will sweep through resulting in a warm frontal
showers on Saturday followed by showers and thunderstorms on Sunday
with approaching cold front from the west. Still some timing issues
but appears precip will impact this upcoming weekend, luckily not a
washout.

Canadian high pressure will move in behind the front on Monday
lasting into the work week resulting in dry weather.

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.
