Synopsis
High pressure will hold over the region tonight through Tuesday
night with temperatures remaining well above normal. A cold
front will approach from the west on Wednesday and will cross
the region Wednesday night. The front will push offshore early
Thursday followed by a narrow ridge of high pressure. A
secondary cold front will drop south through the region on
Friday. High pressure will build in from the west for Saturday
and Sunday.

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

no major changes to the forecast at this time. Forecast is on
track, but adjusted hourly grids to match current trends.

607 pm update... Minor changes to adjust temperature and dew
point trends. No clouds across the region but some haze is
noted. Fog will be more widespread tonight than last night as
dew point depressions are lower.

Previous discussion...

hot temperatures for this time of year continue as of this
Sunday afternoon, with many temperatures in the 87-90 range. A
weak sfc trough moving southeastward across the mountains has
cooled things off a little bit up that way. This trough will
settle southeastward on the coastal plain tonight and pretty
much wash out. It'll be a relatively warm and humid night with
patchy fog expected - perhaps a little more widespread than last
night as low level moisture has increased.

Short term 6 am Monday morning through Monday night
General deep layer ridging will continue over new england on
Monday. This will mean another day of light winds and very warm
temperatures. Highs may be a couple of degrees less than
Sunday's values but still firmly entrenched in the mid to upper
80s except on the immediate coast where a more robust seabreeze
is expected on Sunday. There is also a slight chance of an
isolated pop-up shower or thunderstorm in the whites due to
differential heating, but again a very low prob. Patchy fog will
be likely again Monday night.

Long term Tuesday through Sunday
Broad upper level ridge will remain in place over the northeast on
Tuesday with high temps once again running well above normal.

Highs in inland locations will top out in the mid to upper 80s.

Once again light gradient across the region will allow a sea
breeze to develop in the afternoon capping temps in the upper 70s
to lower 80s along the coast. Fair weather will continue Tuesday
night with lows in the upper 50s north to the mid 60s in the
south.

Cold front will approach from the west on Wednesday. Should be
enough moisture and and instability to pop of a few showers or
thunderstorms in northwest zones by late in the day but not
looking for anything too widespread.

Cold front will move in from the west Wednesday night and will
shift offshore by Thursday morning. Expect scattered showers and
a few thunderstorms overnight with the best chance of precip in
northern zones.

Cooler and drier air will flood into the region on an increasing
northwest flow on Thursday. Looking for a mix of Sun and clouds
in the mountains and mostly sunny skies elsewhere. Highs will
range from the upper 60s north to the mid 70s south. Narrow
ridge of high pressure will hold over the region Thursday night
producing mostly clear skies and lows ranging through the 40s to
near 50.

Moisture starved shortwave will swing in from the west on Friday
with an associated cold front dropping south through the region
in the afternoon. Expect increasing clouds with a chance of
showers... Mainly during the afternoon and evening. Highs will
range from the upper 50s north to the upper 60s south. Lingering
showers Friday evening will push east and clearing skies will
set in after midnight as high pressure builds in from the west.

Lows overnight will range through the 40s.

High pressure will continue to build in from the west on Saturday
and will hold through the weekend. Expect highs both Saturday and
Sunday in the 60s with lows at night in the 40s.

Aviation 01z Monday through Friday
Short term...VFR conditions are expected for the most part
through Monday night. However, a brief period of ifr will be
possible late tonight and again Monday night in fog due to an
increase in low level moisture.

Long term...

vfr Tuesday through Wednesday. Areas of MVFR ceilings Wednesday
night.VFR Thursday and Friday.

Monday night. However, some marine will be possible at times.

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.
