Synopsis
High pressure will build over the region tonight into Tuesday.

A weak disturbance will cross the area Tuesday night and early
Wednesday accompanied by clouds and scattered mainly mountain
snow showers. High pressure then builds across the area late
Wednesday through Friday. Low pressure passes by to our south
next weekend.

Near term until 6 am Tuesday morning
625 pm update: quiet night with clear skies and light winds.

Radiational cooling will make for a cold night. No changes
needed attm.

Previous discussion:
some remaining stratocu in the mountains may cause a flurry or
two over the higher terrain early this evening. Otherwise, dry
and quiet conditions expected across the region as a weak ridge
of high pressure remains over new england. Mainly clear skies
and light winds will allow for radiational cooling. Expect
readings near or just below zero in the north and only the lower
teens right along the coastal shoreline. Have undercut mos
numbers by a couple degrees.

Short term 6 am Tuesday morning through Tuesday night
Mainly clear skies and seasonably cool temperatures on Tuesday
will give way to increasing clouds late in the day in advance of
a short wave trough pushing east from the great lakes region.

Temperatures will be near seasonal norms for this time of the
year.

This weather system will lead to mainly scattered mountain snow
showers Tuesday night as it crosses the region. Cold air will
funnel in from the north, northeast later at night, setting the
stage for chilly conditions for the long range portion of the
forecast.

Long term Wednesday through Monday
Models in fairly good agreement on quiet weather through the end of
week...

high pressure building south from canada will bring a re-enforcing
shot of cold air into the region on Wednesday. Looking for
morning clouds to give way to mostly sunny skies in the
afternoon. Temperatures will remain well below normal with highs
from the mid teens to lower 20s in the north and mid to upper
20s in the south.

High pressure will crest over the region Wednesday night with a
very dry air mass allowing for good radiational cooling. Have
shaved several degrees off forecast lows which should bottom out
from zero to ten below in the north and zero to 10 above in the
south.

High pressure will drift off to the southeast on Thursday as a
weak shortwave swings through southern new england. Looking for a
gradual increase in clouds in southwest zones and maybe a stray
snow shower in southern new hampshire by late in the day. High
temperatures will range through the 20s in the north and upper
20s to lower 30s in the south.

Clouds will gradually diminish Thursday night as the shortwave
pushes east and surface high pressure remains anchored off the
coast. Lows overnight will range from the the lower to mid teens
north and upper teens to lower 20s south.

High pressure will remain in control over the region on Friday.

Expect a mix of Sun and clouds with moderating temperatures.

Highs will generally range through the 30s to near 40 in the far
south. High pressure will remain nosed into the region Friday
night as high clouds overspread the region from the southwest.

Lows overnight will range from the mid 20s to mid 30s.

Significant model differences for the weekend continue today as
gfs moves low pressure out of the ohio valley and into the
central hudson valley by Sunday morning. ECMWF keeps this system
to the south as high pressure builds in from the northwest.

Will be sticking close to sb numbers considering these diffs and
will likely keep pops in the chance range for Saturday and
Sunday at this point.

Aviation 00z Tuesday through Saturday
Short term... MainlyVFR conditions across the region with just
some MVFR conditions due to lowering ceiling in any scattered
mountain snow showers Tuesday night.

Long term...

vfr Wednesday. Areas of MVFR ceilings in southern zones Thursday
afternoon and evening.VFR Friday and Saturday.

Marine
Short term... Winds and seas will remain below SCA thresholds.

Some gusty northwesterly winds will develop however Tuesday
night.

Long term...

sca's likely Wednesday through Wednesday night for the outer
waters.

Gyx watches warnings advisories

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.
