Synopsis
The remnants of jose will meander well south of CAPE cod into
the weekend, gradually weakening with time. Meanwhile, a large
building ridge of high pressure will dominate the weather across
our region through the weekend and into early next week. We'll
see a very nice stretch of dry and unseasonably warm weather
with temperatures running well above normal through at least
Monday. A front will remain nearly stationary north of our
region Wednesday, before sweeping south as a cold front on
Thursday.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
555 am... Minor estf update to reflect the current mesonet in
near term grids.

Prev disc...

at 06z... A 1021 millibar high was centered over northern new
england. A 1003 millibar low... The remnants of jose... Was
centered southeast of the 40n 70w benchmark. GOES infrared
imagery showed the northern periphery of the cloud shield from
the offshore low extended into southern new hampshire and the
coastal plain of maine. Elsewhere... Skies were clear and we'll
see some valley fog and stratus form in the predawn hours. For
today... The cloud shield will shift offshore this morning with
sunshine and well above normal temperatures under a building
upper ridge. Highs will be in the lower and mid 80s... But a bit
cooler at the coast as light winds turn onshore.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Sunday
Mostly clear tonight under the surface high with some late night
valley stratus and fog developing once again. Lows will be around
60. It'll be even warmer on Sunday as the ridge remains in place
with high temperatures in the mid 80s to around 90. It'll be
slightly cooler near the coast once again as light winds turn
onshore by afternoon.

Long term Sunday night through Friday
A large scale upper level ridge will continue to dominate the
weather conditions in northern new england on Sunday. H8
temperatures will reach +18c. With nearly full Sun and good
mixing, temperatures will soar through the 80s in most areas.

Right along the shoreline, temperatures will be slightly cooler
due to an onshore afternoon sea breeze.

The record high temperature is 90 in concord which has a chance
of being tied. In the forest city of portland, the record high
temperatures for Sunday is 88 degrees where readings will
likely fall short due to the onshore flow.

There is a chance that winds may switch with the close proximity
of a backdoor cold front on Monday. However, this frontal
passage is somewhat uncertain at this time which could lead to
an underforecast of the high temperatures. For now, will
forecast lower to mid 80s over the interior, with 70s right
along the shoreline which is still well above normal for this
time of the year.

By Tuesday, there may be an outside chance of a shower over far
northern areas near the proximity of the stalled out front. Over
the coastal waters, some patchy drizzle or a passing shower may
occur of the gulf of maine with low level easterly surface
winds.

A strong cold front will approach the region on Wednesday.

Latest guidance suggests this front may be a slow mover and not
cross the region until Thursday with scattered showers and
possibly a thunderstorm. Latest model guidance also pulls maria
closer to the mid atlantic and southeast coast during the mid
week period, before shunting the system out to sea. It is
unclear as to whether some of this moisture can be entrained
into the frontal system.

Aviation 10z Saturday through Wednesday
Short term through Sunday ...VFR conditions except some MVFR
cigs over southern and coastal areas of me nh through 13z today.

Lcl lifr btw 09z-12z today and again Sunday along the ct river
valley in stratus and fog.

Long term... MainlyVFR conditions are expected Monday through
Tuesday, with ifr valley fog likely at night in the interior.

Chances for showers and thunderstorms increase Wednesday.

Marine
Short term through Sunday ... The remnants of jose will remain
nearly stationary well south of CAPE cod through today. This
will mean SCA conditions for seas are expected to continue over
the outer waters and casco bay today.

Long term... Winds and seas will remain below SCA thresholds. A
long period swell from maria may effect the waters later in the
week.

Tides coastal flooding
Long period swells from the remnants of jose will continue
through today. Some minor beach erosion remains possible.

Gyx watches warnings advisories
Me... High surf advisory until 4 pm edt this afternoon for
mez023>027.

Nh... High surf advisory until 4 pm edt this afternoon for nhz014.

Marine... Small craft advisory for hazardous seas until 8 pm edt this
evening for anz150-152>154.

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