Synopsis
High pressure and associated fair weather will build across new
england today and last into midweek. The high then moves
offshore and provides for warmer weather toward the end of the
week. Unsettled weather may arrive over the weekend.

Near term through today
High pressure will continue to build into the region today.

Sunny skies are expected as a result. However, it will be a bit
breezy. This combined with below normal temperatures may make it
feel a bit chilly.

Short term tonight through 6 pm Wednesday
High pressure parks overhead tonight allowing for clear skies,
light winds, and cold temperatures. Lows will be in the single
digits and teens area-wide. Not out of the question that
portions of northern nh see lows a bit below zero. A fine
weather day is expected on Wednesday with sunny skies, light
winds, and highs in the 40s.

Long term Wednesday night through Monday
Ensemble and deterministic model solutions remain in decent
agreement on the long wave pattern through the start of the
upcoming weekend. A split flow regime will remain in place across
the CONUS with the northern branch remaining to our north for much
of the period... Keeping the cold air and below normal
temperatures largely bottled up to our north. For a change... We
should see temperatures average near or above normal. In the
dailies... High pressure builds east across the region for
Wednesday and Thursday. A cold front will cross the area with a
few rain and snow showers Thursday night into Friday. The front
will return north as a warm front next weekend as low pressure
tracks to our west. The trailing cold front will cross the area on
Sunday. The question yet to be answered is how much phasing
ultimately occurs between northern and southern stream energy with
this system and how fast the baroclinic zone clears the coast. The
mild temperatures and snowmelt combined with precipitation will
have river levels on the rise.

Aviation 06z Tuesday through Saturday
Short term...VFR conditions will dominate the region today
through Wednesday.

Long term...

thu night - fri... MVFR in -shra -shsn.

Fri night - sat... MVFR in -shra with LCL ifr psb in drizzle and
fog. Southerly wind gusting up to 25 kt.

Marine
Short term... High pressure builds across the waters today and
tonight. A burst of cold air advection should allow for northern
wind gusts around 25 kt tonight. Therefore, a SCA has been
posted for some ocean zones.

Long term...

thu - Fri am... Sca's likely... With gales psb outside the bays.

Sat... Sca's likely... With gales psb outside the bays.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
