Synopsis
A weak cold front crossed the area early this morning accompanied
by a few clouds and mainly mountain snow showers. High pressure
follows this front later today 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 Thursday.

Milder air moves in for Friday and Saturday, but there is also
a chance for precipitation as a storm system passes to our
south.

Near term through today
At 07z... A 1013 millibar low vicinity of the gaspe peninsula
with a trailing cold front through the mountains and foothills
of maine and new hampshire. GOES infrared imagery showed a band
of clouds across the higher terrain with a few streamers
extending onto the coastal plain. NWS doppler radar mosaic
showed some scattered snow showers with the front and in the
post-frontal upslope flow immediately behind it. The front will
sweep offshore by dawn. Snow shower activity should diminish
next few hours with some lingering upslope clouds and flurries
confined to mountain sections through mid morning. Otherwise a
mainly sunny but cold day under building high pressure with
temperatures averaging close to ten degrees below normal for the
date.

Short term tonight through 6 pm Tuesday
Mostly clear and cold tonight as the high pressure ridge crests
across the region. Lows will range from near zero along the
international border to around 10 above over far southern new
hampshire and maine coastline. The ridge quickly retreats
offshore on Tuesday. Sunshine will fade behind increasing
afternoon clouds over far northern and western sections ahead of
the next disturbance diving southeast out of canada. High temperatures
will remain well below normal with readings similar to today.

Long term Tuesday night through Sunday
Overall, the 500 mb pattern in the long range
shows less signs of significant changes than it did a few days
ago, but for the most part it looks milder across most of noam
as the coldest air stays over the arctic and siberia. So, the
warm up remains tempered, but temps should shift to normal or a
little above normal by late week into the weekend. The other
trend is that phasing of the NRN and SRN stream does not occur
and the Friday -Saturday system trend to the south, as previous
storms have done over the last several days.

Still, we will see a shot of cold air moving in Tuesday night
and hanging around through Wed night. The front could produce
some snow showers in the mtns Tue night, and temps Tue night
will drop in the single digits and teens again. Wed should be
mainly sunny some clouds in the mtns with highs around 20 in
the mtns to the upper 20s in SRN nh and near the coast. Wed
night will be clear and cold, with mins depending on how quickly
the winds die off and rad cooling sets in. The mtns, especially
the vlys should fall below zero, with single digits most other
inland areas outside of the more urban areas of SRN nh and the
coast where lows will be around or just above 10f.

Thu looks a little bit warmer, and mostly to partly sunny, with
highs mid 30s N to low 30s s. Some WAA Thu night should produce
a period of mid to high clouds and low will be milder than
previous nights generally in the teens to low 20s. Fri will be
milder, and at least partly sunny, with highs in the mid 30s to
low 40s.

The next system will impact the area to some degree Fri night
into Saturday. If the systems do not phase, which is the model
trend at this point, we still could see some light or showery
precip from the NRN wave in this timeframe, thus the chc pops.

Temps should be mild enough for mainly rain outside of the mtns
Saturday, but will not rule out any precip starting as snow or
possibly fzra for short period Fri night. System will clear the
area Sat night, with fair and seasonable conds expected Sunday.

Aviation 06z Monday through Friday
Short term through Tuesday ... Sct MVFR psb through 12z in mtn
-shsn... OtherwiseVFR conditions expected.

Long term...VFR expected Tue night thru Friday.

Marine
Short term through Tuesday ... Sca's through early morning all
waters except casco bay as we see marginal wind gusts and seas
with passage of weak cold front. Building ridge of high pressure
should then keep us below SCA threshold for the remainder of the
period.

Long term... SCA may be needed in N flow behind a front on wed,
but otherwise expect sub-sca conds for the late week.

Nh... None.

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.
