937 pm est Thu nov 23 2017

Synopsis
A ridge of high pressure moves east this evening. A weakening
cold front approaches northern maine later tonight and then
stalls. The front will return northward as a warm front later
Friday.

Near term through Friday
Update 6:30 pm: have adjusted temperature and dew point. No
other changes.

The high pressure ridge will crest over the area this evening.

As winds back to the southwest, stubborn stratocumulus and
flurries entrenched over aroostook county will slowly erode.

Meanwhile, high and mid clouds will thicken from the west ahead
of a cold front that will arrive in the northwest corner of the
forecast area by late tonight. These clouds will likely preclude
a lot of radiational cooling as lows drop into the low to mid
20s for most of the region. There will be more clearing towards
the coast and have adjusted lows a bit further downward in the
down east region. The cold front will get into aroostook county
Friday morning, but make very little additional progress
southward. Snow squalls with the front are expected to fall
apart before crossing the saint john river. By afternoon, the
front will transform into a warm front as low pressure in
ontario approaches. This warm front will bring the chance of a
few snow showers to aroostook county and a warmer south wind.

This means milder high temperatures for the entire area on
Friday. Expect lower 40s and mostly sunny skies for bangor and
ellsworth.

Short term Friday night through Sunday

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.
