Synopsis
High pressure will build to the south of the region through
Monday before sliding to the east on Tuesday. A cold front will
move in from the west Tuesday night and cross the region on
Wednesday. High pressure and drier air follows the front Wednesday
night through Friday.

Near term until 6 am Monday
At 18z... A 1022 millibar high was centered over pennsylvania.

The upper trough was exiting the coast along with a few widely
scattered showers. Clouds on visible imagery will begin to
dissipate next few hours with loss of daytime heating.

Overnight... Mostly clear skies with patchy fog as high pressure
builds to our south overnight. A cool and comfortable late
summer night with lows in the 50s and lower 60s.

Short term 6 am Monday through Monday night
On Monday... High pressure builds by to our south with westerly
flow ushering warmer and gradually more humid air into the
area. Outside of a few fair weather cumulus clouds developing in
daytime heating... A sunny day with highs mainly in the 80s. A
few locations in southeast new hampshire could flirt with the 90
degree mark. Partly cloudy Monday night with a few warm air
advection clouds. There could be a brief shower near the
international border in the predawn hours of Tuesday.

Otherwise... A dry night with patchy valley fog developing
overnight.

Long term Tuesday through Sunday
After zonal flow aloft starts off the week a deep trough will
dive southwards out of the northwest territories moving into the
region by Wednesday. The trough will linger over the region
through the end of the week weakening as it does.

Tuesday will be very warm and humid. Deep southerly flow around
a bermuda high will push warm moist air into the region. High
temperatures will reach the low 90s in southern new hampshire
with dewpoints in the upper 60s, which will result in heat index
approaching 95 degrees. With the strength of the high pressure
have gone a bit higher on the temperatures for Tuesday.

A strong cold front will approach from the west Tuesday and move
through the region overnight. The front will cross western new
york in the afternoon, and move through new hampshire and
western maine overnight Tuesday into Wednesday. Due to the
overnight timing, expect thunderstorms to be mainly elevated and
decaying as it moves through our area, however the ct river
valley could see some stronger storms as the front approaches
earlier in the day.

On Wednesday the front will move off into eastern maine, with a
few showers possible in the eastern portion of the area in the
morning. By afternoon westerly flow will decrease humidity.

Moving into the end of the week the trough will remain overhead
keeping temperatures more seasonable with highs in the upper 70s
south to upper 60s north and lows in the 50s. Dry conditions
will continue through the start of next weekend.

Aviation 18z Sunday through Friday
Short term through Monday night ...VFR... With sct MVFR and lcl
ifr btw 08 - 12z Monday in valley fog. LCL ifr psb btw 08 and
12z Tue in valley fog.

Long term... Scattered thunderstorms will briefly reduce
conditions to ifr overnight Tuesday into Wednesday beforeVFR
continues through the end of the week.

Marine
Short term through Monday night ... Winds and seas are expected
to remain below small craft as surface high pressure builds by
to our south.

Long term... Southerly flow ahead of a cold front Tuesday into
Tuesday night will help the outer waters reach small craft
criteria.

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.
