Synopsis
Strong low pressure along the maine coast will gradually move
north into the maritimes overnight. Colder air will move back
into the area tonight on a gusty northwest wind changing any
lingering precipitation back to snow. Snow showers will continue
across the higher terrain on Saturday with some additional
accumulation likely. After a brief warm up on Sunday, a cold
front will cross the region Monday. Cold but fair weather follows
for Tuesday and Wednesday, with a warming trend for the end of
the week.

Near term until 6 am Saturday morning
700 pm update...

low pressure has shifted into mid coast and downeast sections of
maine early this evening. Precipitation beginning to diminish
across southern new hampshire and downslope flow starting to dry
out lower levels but still expect to see occasional showers
through midnight. A fair amount of precipitation continues in
western maine and the mountains of maine and new hampshire.

Across southern maine expect rain showers to continue through
late this evening before tapering off toward midnight. In the
foothills a mix of rain and snow will likely go back to snow
before ending with little additional snow accumulation
expected. Will likely let winter weather advisories continue
until they expire at midnight. Expect accumulating snow to
continue in the north although northern new hampshire starting
to see some breaks in the snow. Expect snow to continue in this
area as upslope flow increases through midnight before tapering
to snow showers late. Have adjusted pops and weather grids
based on latest radar trends. Aside from a few temp TD tweaks no
major changes planned to current forecast.

Prev disc...

at 18z... A 981 millibar low was centered east of portland with
three hour pressure falls approaching 10 millibars over the bay
of fundy. We continue to see a mixed bag of precipitation in all
but mountain sections based largely on elevation and precipitation
intensity. Colder air will be drawn back into the area tonight
on the backside of the low that should change lingering precipitation
back to snow. I've continued the winter storm warning for the
mountains with an advisory for much of the foothills as we'll
see several more inches accumulate there tonight. Elsewhere... A
coating to an inch should be the rule. Lows will range from the
upper 20s to mid 30s.

Short term 6 am Saturday morning through Saturday night
The low exits into the maritimes on Saturday with a gusty
northwest flow behind it. Upslope snow and clouds in the
mountains with some additional snow accumulation likely.

Elsewhere... Downslope flow should result in a partly to mostly
sunny day. Highs will range from near 32 along the international
border to lower 40s along the coast. Building high pressure and
a relaxing pressure gradient should bring mostly clear skies and
cold temperatures Saturday night. Lows will range from teens
across the mountains to lower and mid 20s elsewhere.

Long term Sunday through Friday
The extended forecast is shaping up to be a pretty typical
spring forecast of yo-yoing from one season to another.

We start Sun with a downslope dandy of a day. W winds and warm
temps aloft will support afternoon highs climbing into the 50s s
of the mtns.

But Sun into Mon a piece of the polar vortex will break off and
head swd thru canada towards the northeast. While it will
moderate some as it does so... Below normal temps are expected.

With highs early in the week struggling into the 30s... Highs
should be about 10 degrees cooler than normal. Just ahead of the
cold front dropping S some weak frontogenesis along the
boundary will support an area of light precip or showers.

Initially marginal boundary layer temps may support some
rain... But eventually it looks like some snow will mix in. A
dusting is most likely at this time.

After the early week cold wx... A trof begins to dig into the
central CONUS allowing SW flow to develop over the east coast.

This will allow some milder temps to move into the
region... Perhaps even above normal.

Aviation 00z Saturday through Wednesday
Short term through Saturday night ... Ifr improving to MVFR in
-ra -sn tonight outside the mountains. On Saturday... Lingering
MVFR in mountain -shsn withVFR elsewhere. NW winds gusting to
30 kt. BecomingVFR throughout Sat night with diminishing wind.

Long term... A cold front will drop swd thru the forecast area
late Sun into mon. A little bit of WAA along the frontal
boundary will produce some -sn -ra or shra shsn along it towards
mon morning. Not confident in areas of ifr yet... But it is a
possibility. Otherwise high pressure andVFR conditions dominate
the forecast thru midweek.

Marine
Short term through Saturday night ... We should see a return to
gales tonight behind the departing coastal low and i've gone
gales for the bays and the open waters into the day on Saturday.

Winds and seas should drop off Saturday night as high pressure
builds eastward.

Long term... A cold front will drop across the waters late sun
into mon. Ahead of the front winds and seas may briefly increase
to around SCA thresholds. Otherwise high pressure will dominate
the waters and winds and seas should remain below sca
conditions.

Tides coastal flooding
Marine forecast guidance all suggests storm surge values
dropping off to near 0 ft tonight. However they also forecast
around 1 ft at most today and were off by over a half foot. So
based on guidance from stevens institute will split the
difference and keep a half foot of surge residual tide anomaly
going for the after midnight high tide tonight. That still keeps
us below flood stage but high enough to warrant a statement for
all coastal zones for splash over and erosion.

Gyx watches warnings advisories
Me... Winter weather advisory until midnight edt tonight for mez012-
013.

Winter storm warning until 8 am edt Saturday for mez007>009.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
