Marine Weather and Tides
Blue Hill, ME

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
High pressure will build across the region today and crest over
the region tonight. The high will move southeast of the area
Friday into Saturday with low pressure approaching from the
midwest on Sunday.

Near term through tonight
845 am edt update... Cold air advection behind the cold front
dominates today with highs only in the low-mid 60s in northern
aroostook county while an offshore flow will generate highs
in the low to mid 70s in coastal hancock and washington
counties. Temps tonight in aroostook county will drop to the mid
30s in normally cooler valleys. A warming trend follows Friday
with highs rebounding to the 70s except on the coast where a sea
breeze returns.

Previous discussion...

summer officially begins this morning at 607 am edt but
temperatures today won't feel all that summerlike. A cooler air
mass was working in behind a cold front that was crossing the
region early this morning. A few showers may linger downeast prior
to sunrise until the front clears the coast, otherwise clearing
skies are expected. The air mass in the wake of the front is
associated with canadian high pressure that was centered near
james bay early this morning. This high will slowly build toward
the region today with a north wind and cooler temperatures. Except
for a few fair weather clouds we are expecting plenty of sunshine
today. High temperatures will range from the mid to upper 60s
across the north and low to mid 70s central downeast. This is 5 to
10 degrees below normal for this time of year. The high will
slide across the region tonight with mainly clear skies and light
winds leading to radiational cooling. This will result in some
lows falling into the mid to upper 30s in the colder valleys of
the north and west with patchy frost. The record low temperature
for houlton for Friday morning is 36 degrees and we have a shot of
at least tying this by daybreak Friday. Considering the very
short nights this time of year, we are not anticipating widespread
frost coverage, thus no advisories will be issued.

Short term Friday through Sunday night
Models for the short term cont to advertise ptly to msly sunny
skies for Fri and milder aftn hi temps as sfc hi pres drifts se
of our fa with fair skies and near seasonable ovrngt low temps
fri ngt . Latest 00z model guidance is also in agreement that
cldnss and shwrs will be about 3 to 6 hrs slower to advc from
the great lks than shown for this tm from ysdy's model runs,
allowing for at least ptly sunny skies lasting into the mid aftn
hrs across the NE hlf of the fa, where we show the warmest hi
temps.

Longer range models then cont to show intermittent msly lgt
shwrs movg into the fa from the wsw beginning later Sat aftn
across the xtrm W and the eve hrs for the rest of the fa with
lgt ovrngt QPF amts. Most model guidance indicates a pd of
lesser shwr cvrg from the erly morn hrs Sun into the aftn hrs
with another round of greater shwr cvrg and perhaps a little
more QPF with the passage of a secondary upper trof from the
james bay area for Sun ngt into Mon morn. In any event, with
little in the way of fcst mucape, we do not show any mention of
tstms ATTM from Sat ngt into Mon morn. Temps, spcly hi temps
will be cooler for sun.

Long term Monday through Wednesday
Longer range models are in better agreement with the ending tm
of shwrs, showing the back edge thru NW ptns of the fa by late
mon morn and E of the rest of the fa by late Mon aftn with
decreasing cldnss ovrngt mon. After cool temps Mon and Mon ngt,
tue will begin msly sunny with temps warming t near seasonal
highs, with some aftn cldnss msly across the N as a cold front
from NRN can becomes stationary just N of the fa. Tue ngt and
wed look to be fair with a cont'd warming trend as sfc hi pres
from the great lks moves ovr SRN gulf of me.

Aviation 13z Thursday through Monday
Near term:VFR conditions are expected through tonight.

Short to long term:VFR conditions are xpctd all TAF sites fri
thru Sat with clgs and vsbys lowering to MVFR ovrngt Sat ngt and
contg Sun inti Sun ngt, with intervals of ifr clgs vsbys
possible. All sites should slowly improve toVFR mon.

Marine
Near term: no issues are expected on the coastal waters through
tonight with winds seas remaining below advisory criteria.

Short to long term: no definitive pd of SCA winds seas are xpctd
thru these ptns of the fcst ATTM with WV hts building to just
below thresholds ovr outer mzs050-051 on mon. Went with about 75
to 85 percent of ww3 WV ht guidance for our fcst WV hts with
primary WV pds varying from 5 to 8 sec.
