Synopsis
Moist onshore flow today and tonight will allow for cloudy skies
through tonight along with some showers and fog. High pressure
will slide offshore on Tuesday as a cold front approaches
Wednesday. A few thunderstorms, some possibly strong, may occur
Wednesday afternoon and evening. After that a return to some
unsettled weather could occur Friday.

Near term until 6 am Tuesday morning
Area of showers located between weakening sfc low to our NW and
developing coastal system to our SE located over much of nh this
afternoon. Forcing will continue to weaken thru the evening as
coastal stengthens as it moves away from, and this combined
with fairly solid ridging to our east will weaken the showers as
they move into western and central me. Currently the rain is
having a tough crossing the nh me border, but the showers
should work in this evening, although not expecting much in the
way of qpf, less than a tenth overall in me. In nh, the showers
should move out early this evening. Otherwise, look for dz to
become a little more widespread as the onshore flow weakens, but
remains persistent, and fog will develop further inland as well
as low level moisture begins to increase. The ct vly will
likely be spared much of the fg dz thanks to the downsloping
from the SE flow. All in all lows should be in the mid to upper
40s in most spots, which is not that far off current temps in
many spots, so not much change in temps. In fact temps may start
to creep up a bit after midnight as they are forced up by
increasing low level moisture.

Short term 6 am Tuesday morning through Tuesday night
It is tough to say Tuesday will be better than Monday as we
remain locked into onshore and will hang onto a lot of clouds,
especially on the coastal plain and in the foothills. Should see
some break in dz fg by mid-late morning as well. And, temps
will be a few degrees warmer with highs ranging form the low to
mid 60s in SRN nh and the ct vly to the mid to upper 50s on the
coast. Again, those areas N of the whites and in the ct vly will
see some breaks of Sun on Tuesday as well. Nest system will
bring a chance of showers to nh in the afternoon, with some tsra
possible in the far WRN zones. The bulk of any showers will
hold off until evening across most of the cwa.

Tue night will see a warm front move through aloft and best
forcing holds to out N and w, which means best chc for any shra
will be skewed toward the N and W zones. Some thunder will be
possible in the evening. Winds will shift to SW behind the
front, but will likely not mix to the sfc, so will be stuck in
the marine lyr with low clouds and fog lingering Tue night.

Long term Wednesday through Monday
Not all that much change from the previous forecast here in the
extended. A cold front will approach the region on Wednesday. It
does look like there will be sufficient instability, shear, and
forcing to allow for some thunderstorms during the afternoon.

Some cams suggest a few bowing segments with strong wind
potential moving across the region, especially nh, during the
late afternoon and early evening hours. Will continue to watch
for this potential.

Thereafter the best chance of rainfall looks to be around Friday
with another low pressure system and cold front. Low pressure
main remain far enough to our south over the weekend to allow
for a mainly fair weather weekend, but will continue to watch
trends as some ensemble members do bring rain northward.

Aviation 19z Monday through Saturday
Short term... Ifr or lower conditions will continue through
tonight in fg dz and low cigs. Will lkly stay MVFR in downslope
flow at khie, and kleb may stay MVFR through most of the night
as well. Coastal terminals ans kaug will lifr into Tue morning.

Some improvement possible, to MVFR, away from the coast tue
afternoon, but conds should return to ifr again Tue night.

Long term... MainlyVFR to MVFR conditions across the interior on
Wednesday except scattered ifr in showers and thunderstorms
later in the afternoon and evening. On the coastal plain, ifr
conditions in low clouds and mist could hang on for much of the
day. Improvement toVFR is foreseen on Thursday, with the
potential for lower conditions returning on Friday.

Marine
Short term through Tuesday night ... Winds and seas likely to
remain below SCA levels tonight through Tue night.

Long term... The next chance of SCA conditions for gusty winds
and increasing seas may occur Friday into Saturday as a cold
front crosses the waters.

Tides coastal flooding
The astronomical high tide in portland is 11.1 feet mllw at
3:08 am Tuesday. Surge on the high tide that just occurred is
around 0.6 feet. This will keep us below flood levels and with
seas and winds lowering a bit tonight, will not be issuing any
statement at this time.

Gyx watches warnings advisories
Me... None.

Nh... None.

Marine... None.
