Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Synopsis
Low pressure over the far eastern gulf of maine will quickly
shift east today. High pressure will build in from the west this
afternoon and will crest over the region early Tuesday before
shifting offshore south of new england. High pressure will
continue to drift off to the southeast Tuesday night. Low
pressure will approach from the west on Wednesday and will
slowly move east through the region on Thursday. High pressure
will build in from the west Thursday night through Friday
perhaps setting the region up for very hot weather over the
weekend.

Near term through today
Weak surface low currently moving east through the gulf of maine
will quickly shift east into the maritimes this morning and
associated shower activity will gradually end from west to east
across new hampshire and western maine through mid morning.

At the same time... Deep upper trough will swing in from the
northwest bringing steep lapse rates into the region for the
afternoon. Daytime heating will likely pop off afternoon showers
over a good portion on western and central maine in the
unstable air mass. May develop enough CAPE for some isolated
thunderstorms in northeast zones so have added that possibility
to weather grids there. Clouds and and cool air mass will hold
down temperatures in central and western maine in the 60s and
lower 70s. Farther west highs will range through the 70s in new
hampshire.

Short term tonight through 6 pm Tuesday
Shower activity will quickly die out with loss of heating this
evening and skies will gradually clear over western maine as
high pressure builds in from the west. Clearing skies and light
winds will allow temperatures to dip into the upper 30s to lower
40s in colder mountains valleys in the north. Elsewhere lows
will range through the 40s to lower 50s in the far south.

High pressure will crest over the region early Tuesday before
shifting offshore south of new england. Looking for mostly sunny
skies through the day with highs ranging through the 70s to near
80.

Long term Tuesday night through Sunday
The main focus of the extended forecast will be the chances of
rain and amounts Wed night and Thursday. Thereafter, the focus
will turn to potential heat this weekend.

With high pressure moving offshore Tuesday, we'll get into a
more southerly return flow regime with fair weather through
Wednesday. An amplifying short wave trough will approach from
the west Wednesday night, likely bringing measurable rain to
most of the forecast area, centered on Thursday. Pwats are
expected to rapidly increase, possibly to as high as 2 inches.

Therefore, if this idea holds we should see heavy downpours -
especially in thunderstorms.

The short wave trough moves out by Friday ending the threat of
rain. Thereafter, the 00z deterministic guidance as well as a
good portion of the latest ensemble information point toward the
possibility of an anomalous mid level ridge setting up just to
our south over the weekend. This would allow a plume of
anomalous heat to push in new england for Saturday and Sunday.

The 00z deterministic ECMWF and GFS shows highs around 100
degrees for many southern locations in our forecast area for at
least Sunday. However, despite relatively good agreement in
current forecast information, there are many things that could
temper heat and or duration of heat here in me and nh. This
could be a subtle short wave trough not currently resolved 6
days out, convective debris, the mid level ridge being flatter
than currently advertised, etc. However, at this time we are
expecting it to get quite hot and humid over the weekend based
on the good model agreement. However, not quite ready to
explicitly forecast 100 degrees anywhere as of yet.

Aviation 06z Monday through Friday
Short term...VFR today with scattered areas of MVFR ceilings
and vsby in showers this afternoon across western and central
maine.VFR tonight and Tuesday. Winds are expected to generally
be northwest northerly today with some gusts around 20 kt.

Long term... Patchy fog possible Tue night withVFR expected
wed. MVFR to ifr conditions in widespread showers and
thunderstorms Thu into Thu night.

Marine
Short term...

no flags.

Long term... SCA conditions will be quite possible Wednesday
afternoon through Thursday night in association with increasing
southerly flow over the waters.

Gyx watches warnings advisories
Me... None.

Nh... None.
