1116 am est Fri feb 22 2019

Synopsis
High pressure will build across the region today and crest
overhead Saturday. A warm front will approach from the southwest
Saturday night and move into the region Sunday. A cold front
will will move off the coast Sunday night. A strong west to
northwesterly flow will develop Monday and continue through the
day Tuesday and subside Tuesday night. High pressure will build
over the region through much of the remainder of the week.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
1100 am update...

fairly good feed of low level moisture continues to stream into
portions of the connecticut valley and and mountains on
northwest flow. Some light snow showers showing up in the usual
upslope areas and have added some low chance pops to these
locations through early afternoon. Expect cloud cover to
gradually diminish through the afternoon and should become just
partly cloudy by evening. Elsewhere looking for mostly sunny
skies as high pressure continues to build in from the west. Have
tweaked temps tds based on latest surface obs but no major
changes planned to current forecast.

Prev disc...

630am update...

have updated the forecast based on early morning temperature
observations.

Original discussion...

a weak cold front is dropping south across the area early this
morning. Temperatures have been slow to fall overnight due to
cloud cover and light winds. Northwest winds today will promote
good mixing especially on the coastal plain, so temperatures
will warm into the low 40s there.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Saturday
High pressure arrives from the west tonight and will allow winds
to drop off and radiational cooling to take over. The cold spots
will drop into the low teens or upper single digits while the
hills and urban areas may only drop to the low 20s or upper
teens. High pressure shifts east on Saturday with temperatures
topping out in the 30s to low 40s.

Long term Saturday night through Thursday
The long term will be highlighted by significant weather
Saturday night and Sunday followed by a general cool down
through much of next week.

Saturday night and Sunday a warm front will move northeast
toward the forecast area with the parent low well to the west.

Models are all hinting at a secondary low forming near the maine
coast Sunday afternoon. Very tricky forecast for precipitation
type. Will likely see snow break out over southwest new
hampshire after midnight Saturday night and spread northeast.

Expect warmer air aloft to quickly move in over southern areas
before dawn Sunday resulting in a change to sleet freezing rain
and finally rain in much of southern new hampshire and southwest
maine by noon Sunday. Expect a 1 to 3 inch snowfall in these
areas. Just north of this area a 3 to 5 inch snowfall is
possible. Farther to the north and east snowfall will be greater
as the change line should remain south of much of central
maine. Warning criteria snow is possible in much of somerset,
and franklin counties. However confidence level is not high.

Once this system moves through cold air moves in with much of
next week seeing near normal cold. The GFS indicates system for
the middle of the week which the ECMWF does not show.

Aviation 16z Friday through Tuesday
Short term...VFR conditions today becoming mostly clear with a
light northwest breeze. Winds die off tonight as high pressure
moves in.

Long term... ExpectVFR Saturday night. Ifr lifr Sunday
conditions to move in Saturday night through Sunday
vfr Monday and Tuesday with strong west to northwest winds.

Gusts 35 to 40kts possible.

Marine
Short term... Should see decreasing winds today and tonight as
high pressure builds in from the west.

Long term... Winds and seas will increase to SCA criteria Sunday.

Monday after low pressure departs to the northeast winds
increase from the west and northwest with gale force winds
likely. Gusts may approach storm force.

Gyx watches warnings advisories
Me... None.

Nh... None.

Marine... None.

Short term... Sinsabaugh
long term... Arnott

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
