Synopsis
High pressure will continue to shift east tonight. A cold front
will approach from the west on Wednesday and will cross the
region Wednesday night. High pressure will build in from the
west on Thursday. A secondary cold front will drop south through
the region Thursday night and Friday. High pressure will build
in from the west Friday night through Sunday and will hold over
the area on Monday.

Near term through tonight
High pressure will continue to shift off to the east overnight
as unseasonably warm weather continues across the northeast.

Looking for mostly clear skies this evening giving way to more
dense fog in the valleys and along the coast. Will likely again
need dense fog advisories for Wednesday morning in generally the
same areas as this morning. Will be another warm and muggy night
with lows from the mid 50s to mid 60s.

Short term Wednesday through Wednesday night
Morning fog will lift by mid morning in most locations although
portions of the connecticut valley will remain fogged in through
late morning. Cold front approaching from the west will bring a
chance of showers into far northwest zones in the afternoon. May
see enough instability by late afternoon for an isolated
thunderstorm in the far north but very dry airmass aloft will
preclude convection downwind of the mountains. Looking for highs
a few degrees cooler than today but once again well above
normal for this time of year. High in inland locations should
top out in the lower to mid 80s. A developing sea breeze will
cap temps in the 70s to near 80 along the coast.

Cold front will cross the region Wednesday night with scattered
showers with best chances of precip in the north during the
evening. Only expecting scattered showers in southern zones
after midnight with some areas not seeing much if any qpf. Lows
will range from the mid 50s to near 60 north and lower to mid
60s south.

Long term Thursday through Tuesday
S WV trof passes N of the forecast area thu... Sending a cold
front thru the region early in the day. CAA and gusty wnw winds
are expected during the day... And despite much cool temps the
reality is that they will just be near normal for this time of
year.

There is fair model agreement that upper trof crosses the region
sat. The cold pocket may be enough to generate some widely
scattered showers with diurnal heating... But a widespread precip
event is unlikely.

Beyond sat... Ensemble guidance is in favor of redeveloping wrn
conus trofing and ern CONUS ridging. So temps should begin to
moderate back towards warmer than normal... With surface high
pressure leading to lower than normal precip chances.

Aviation 19z Tuesday through Sunday
Short term...VFR tonight with areas of ifr lifr ceilings and
vsby in valleys and coastal areas.VFR Wednesday and Wednesday
night.

Long term...VFR conditions behind the cold front Thu and
offshore winds should keep fog from forming Thu night. Upper
trof passes across the region sat... And may allow for some
widely scattered shra... Mainly across SRN nh. Otherwise
widespreadVFR conditions expected to end the weekend into early
next week. Valley fog will be likely as high settles overhead
beginning sun.

Marine
Short term... Continuing small craft advisories for seas through
Wednesday in long period swell.

Long term... Long period swell begins to diminish into the
weekend... Though offshore winds behind the cold front Thu may
allow for some 25 kt gusts and continuation of SCA conditions
into fri. Otherwise high pressure in control and low chance of
precip thru the weekend.

Tides coastal flooding
Long period swell will continue for the next several days as
maria makes its turn out to sea south of the forecast area. Will
be extending high surf advisories through Wednesday for mid
coast maine.

Gyx watches warnings advisories
Me... High surf advisory until 8 pm edt Wednesday for mez025>027.

Nh... None.

Marine... Small craft advisory for hazardous seas until 8 pm edt
Wednesday for anz150-152-154.

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.
