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
A much drier air mass will overspread the region today on a
gusty wind in the wake of a strong cold front. High pressure
will build to the south of the area through Wednesday. A cold
front will cross the region Wednesday night.

Near term through tonight
9 am update... A pocket of cold air at 4k feet is drifting into
the north producing a deck of stratocumulus clouds. Increased
cloud cover through the morning. Clouds should slowly diminish
during the afternoon. Also, modified temps to go a couple
degrees warmer downeast and cooler over the north through mid
morning.

Previous discussion:
a cold front pushing off the coast early this morning will usher a
much drier air mass into the area. The pwat last evening on the
kcar sounding was 1.96", which was not only a daily record, but only
0.04" shy of the june record. The drier air and excellent mixing
will likely drive the dew points back into the 30s this afternoon in
far northern maine, and after a muggy early morning start
downeast (dew point of 69f at bangor as of 3 am) the dew points
will fall back into the comfortable 40s today. The model
soundings show steep lapse rates below 800h, and with some
decent wind aloft it will become windy today with a northwest
wind of 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 30 to 35 mph, and possibly to
around 40 mph across the higher terrain. Clouds along the coast
early this morning will give way to a mostly sunny day. In the
north, sunshine will mix with some fair weather cumulus. Highs
today will range from upper 60s in the far north to the mid to
upper 70s downeast. Tonight will be mainly clear and comfortably
cool with lows from the mid 40s to low 50s. There could be some
increase in high clouds late tonight in the north as low
pressure moving across northern quebec drives a cold front into
central quebec by morning.

Short term Wednesday through Thursday
High pressure will give way to an approaching frontal boundary
from the northwest during Wednesday. The front is expected to
cross the region Wednesday afternoon through Wednesday evening.

The front will not have a lot of moisture to work with but may
produce a band of showers as it crosses the region on Wednesday.

Ahead of the front, temperatures Wednesday afternoon will warm
into the low to mid 70s north and upper 70s to lower 80s
downeast. High pressure will build back in behind the front for
Wednesday night and Thursday with dry but cooler weather.

Long term Thursday night through Monday
The long term will be relatively quiet. High pressure will build
across the region Thursday night and Friday with dry and
seasonable weather expected. The high will move east on Saturday
with a warming trend. The next low will approach on Sunday with
showers likely. High pressure will build back in for Monday.

Aviation 13z Tuesday through Saturday
Near term:VFR through tonight. A gusty northwest wind today
will rapidly diminish toward sunset this evening.

Short term: mainlyVFR through the period.

Marine
Near term: a small craft advisory for hazard seas is in effect
until 10 am this morning on the coastal waters. The seas will
gradually subside this morning and conditions are expected to
be below small craft advisory levels from late this morning
through tonight.

Short term: wind seas will remain below SCA levels through the
period.

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.
