Synopsis
Looks like an exceedingly quiet period of weather over the next
few days in northern new england. Expect temperatures to drop a
bit behind a cold front that moved through today. High pressure
over the central united states will start to migrate east,
keeping sunny skies in place through at least Thursday. High
pressure will finally move offshore over the weekend, allowing
for a chance of precipitation as we exit the month.

Near term until 6 am Tuesday morning
700 pm update...

very cold night on tap as high pressure continues to build in
from the west. Dew points have cratered this afternoon with most
reporting stations at zero or below early this evening.

Diminishing winds and clear skies will allow for good
radiational cooling and may have to lower area mins at some
point this evening as things play out. Otherwise not much going
on and no major changes planned to current forecast.

Prev disc...

a weak cold front moved through the area today, bringing some
gusty winds and cooler temperatures to the region. The
relatively cold air that has filtered in behind the front will
especially make itself known tonight. Drier air and good
radiational cooling will allow temperatures tonight to drop into
the single digits above zero over the mountains, with overnight
lows near 20 at the coast.

Short term 6 am Tuesday morning through Tuesday night
High pressure will continue to push into the region from the
west. This will result in sunny skies and seasonable
temperatures. With dry air in place near the surface, do not
even expect to see anything in the way of fog Tuesday night.

Long term Wednesday through Monday
Global models are in fairly good agreement for the long-term
portion of the forecast through Friday as a large surface high
will be centered of new england at the start of the long term
forecast period. The high will drift off the east coast by
Thursday morning allowing for moderating temperatures in the
southerly return flow. A weak cold front tries to cross the
region early Friday. The GFS has more moisture with this feature
than the ecmwf. A few showers may accompany this
front... Especially over northern mountain areas. The front will
stall and then push back north as a warm front Friday night as
low pressure over the midwest moves northeast. This front again
may result in showers over northern and mountain areas. Behind
the front a push of relatively mild air for Saturday into
Sunday. As the low moves through quebec late on Sunday a
trailing cold front will result in showers Sunday afternoon and
night... Followed by a cool down for Monday. It should be noted
that the GFS is 12 to 18 hours faster with the passage of the
cold front. If it is correct then the showers would arrive
Saturday night into Sunday. For now have leaned toward the ecmwf
timing.

Aviation 23z Monday through Saturday
Short term...VFR conditions should dominate throughout the
entire short term.

Long term...VFR conditions Wed and thu. Areas of ifr possible
Thursday night and again Friday night over central and northern
areas as a couple of fronts cross the area.

Marine
Short term... Expect to see some gusts this evening to around
20kts over the waters, but conditions should stay below sca
criteria.

Long term... Winds waves below SCA levels Wednesday. Increasing
sw winds will result in a prolonged period of SCA waves late
Wednesday night... Continuing into Friday. Another round of sca
waves will likely occur on Saturday. SCA level winds will
develop on Thursday and last into Friday. Have shaved wind
speeds a little due to warm advection winds over the cold
waters potentially restricting how much of the winds above the
boundary layer mix down to the surface.

Gyx watches warnings advisories
Me... None.

Nh... None.

Marine... None.
