Cousins Island, ME

Version 3.4
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
High pressure will continue to build into the region today with
fair weather expected. Low pressure approaches from the
southwest early on Saturday with the potential for showers which
will continue into Monday. High pressure then builds in later
Monday, bringing dry conditions into midweek next week along
with a moderating trend.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Update...

have updated the forecast based on current conditions and
diurnal trends based on overnight lows last night. Some patchy
fog occurred in northern coos county with a couple locations
reaching the mid 30s. Will continue with patchy frost and patchy
fog in the forecast for the next hour, before the atmosphere
mixes out. Otherwise, expect quiet conditions with a fair amount
of sunshine today.

Prev disc...

some early morning patchy fog will quickly be followed by
mainly sunny and dry conditions today. High pressure will crest
over northern new england this morning before beginning to move
east this afternoon.

An onshore flow will develop today as the ridge moves east. The
flow will be weak and generally light, nevertheless expect
cooler readings right along the shoreline with highs mainly in
the upper 60s to lower 70s. Further inland, temperatures will
climb into the mid and upper 70s this afternoon.

Sufficient sunshine, light enough winds with mild temperatures
have triggered a high paddlecraft risk for today. Will highlight
in products for today.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Saturday
Clouds will be on the increase tonight. A baroclinic zone will
move up the mid atlantic coastline while and upper level low
also approaches from the northern ohio valley. There should be
sufficiently enough cloud cover to prevent patchy, inland valley
fog to develop tonight. The cloud cover will also serve to keep
reading a little warmer then last night, mainly in the 40s to
lower 50s.

Showers will then enter the region from southwest to northeast
on Saturday as the upper level low approaches from the west and
increased warm air advection occurs in the lower levels of the
atmosphere. There is an outside risk for a thunderstorm, however
the chance is small and with instability marginal, will not
include in the forecast at this time. Cloud cover will prevent
temperatures from climbing higher then the upper 60s to lower
70s.

Long term Saturday night through Thursday
Cold front will gradually sag south into the region Saturday night
and will stall over the region on Sunday. Looking for occasional
showers as this boundary drops south but forcing will be rather
limited and expect rainfall amounts will be on the light side.

Lows overnight will only dip into the mid to upper 50s.

The front will remain parked over the region on Sunday as a
shortwave approaches from the northwest. This will spin up weak
low pressure on the front by late in the day and will suppress
this boundary to the south by evening. Looking for an increasing
chance of showers as the day GOES on and enough instability may
develop in southern new hampshire for afternoon or evening
convection. Highs on Sunday will range from the upper 60s to
upper 70s.

Low pressure will move east through the gulf of maine Sunday night
producing some beneficial rainfall across much of the forecast
area. Most of the region will see one half to 1 inch of qpf
with locally6 higher amounts in eastern zones. Lows overnight
will range through the 50s.

Showers will linger over the area through the first half of Monday
as low pressure slowly pulls off to the east. Looking for clearing
in the afternoon as high pressure builds in from the west. High
temps will range from the mid 60s north to the mid 70s south.

High pressure will continue to build in from the west Monday night
and Tuesday... Shifting offshore south of new england by late in the
day. Looking for mostly clear skies Monday night with lows from the
mid 40s to mid 50s. Tuesday will feature mostly sunny skies with
highs in the mid 70s to lower 80s.

High pressure will remain parked off the new england coast Tuesday
night and will drift off to the southeast on Wednesday as a warm
front approaches from the southwest. Lows Tuesday night will range
through the 50s under mostly clear skies. High clouds will be on
the increase on Wednesday but most of the areas should see a
dry day with highs ranging through the 80s.

Aviation 12z Friday through Tuesday
Short term... MainlyVFR conditions today and tonight with
localized MVFR conditions developing on Saturday in scattered
showers.

Long term...

widespread ifr lifr ceilings Saturday night through Sunday
night... .Improving toVFR on Monday.VFR Monday night through
Tuesday.

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.
