Synopsis
High pressure centered over northern new york and western new
england will move off the southern new england coast this
afternoon. Low pressure will track across the region later
Wednesday through Thursday.

Near term through tonight
Sfc high pressure centered over northern ny state and western
new england early this morning will move off the southern new
england coast this afternoon. Today will feature copious
sunshine and a mild afternoon. 850-925h temps moderate around
+5c over Sunday afternoon, and this should be enough with a
light west wind to send temps into the l m 60s for interior
downeast & the greater bangor region, with mid 50s all the way
north to the saint john valley. Based on the very low rh's
observed Sunday afternoon have gone well below guidance on the
min rh tds this afternoon. Tonight will be mainly clear, but
some high level moisture and cirrus may move in later tonight.

Lows will likely be elevation dependent again with some 20s in
the colder valleys, 30s for much of the area, but closer to 40
along the immediate coast.

Short term Tuesday through Wednesday night
High pressure will exit to the east Tuesday through Tuesday
night. Partly sunny skies are expected across northern areas
Tuesday, with still mostly sunny skies downeast. The return
flow around exiting high pressure will draw moisture across the
region from low pressure along the mid-atlantic coast Tuesday
night. Clouds will increase across the forecast area Tuesday
night. The low will lift north Wednesday through Wednesday
night, though uncertainty still exists regarding the timing and
track. Rain will begin to expand across the region Wednesday,
with rain across the entire forecast area Wednesday night. Rain
totals through Wednesday night are still uncertain. However,
the greater totals appear to occur across downeast areas, with
lesser totals to the north. Above normal level temperatures are
expected Tuesday. Near normal, to slightly above normal, level
temperatures are expected Wednesday.

Long term Thursday through Sunday
Dependent on the timing track of the low, rain should persist
early Thursday then taper to showers during the afternoon. Could
still have a chance of showers Thursday night, mostly across
northern areas. Otherwise, expect mostly partly cloudy skies
across the region Thursday night. Low pressure will approach
from the west later Friday. Clouds will increase across the
region Friday, with a chance of showers mostly Friday night. The
low will cross the region Saturday with mostly cloudy skies
along with a chance of showers. An upper level trof will cross
the region Sunday with partly mostly cloudy skies along with a
chance of showers. Near normal, to slightly above normal, level
temperatures are expected Thursday through Saturday. Near
normal, to slightly below normal, level temperatures are
expected Sunday.

Aviation 09z Monday through Friday
Near term:VFR for the next 24 hours. The sfc wind regime will
be light, but there will be some wind aloft across far northern
maine late tonight that could produce some marginal low level
wind shear very late tonight with a west wind of 30-35 knots at
2k ft agl.

Short term: generally expectVFR conditions Tuesday through
Tuesday night, though MVFR conditions could begin to develop
later Tuesday night. MVFR to lifr conditions will develop
Wednesday with developing rain, then persist through early
Thursday. MVFR ifr conditions are expected Thursday afternoon,
withVFR MVFR conditions Thursday night. Occasional MVFR
conditions are possible across the entire region Friday.

Marine
Near term: the wind and seas will remain below small craft advisory
levels through tonight.

Short term: small craft advisory conditions are expected on the
waters Tuesday through Wednesday night. Visibilities will be
reduced in rain Wednesday into Wednesday night.

Hydrology
There remains a limited threat of ice jams where ice remains on
the northern rivers. Most of the ice has been flushed out on the
aroostook, with more extensive areas of ice on the saint john
and allagash, but even on these rivers there are wide areas that
are mainly ice free.

The combination of significant snowmelt this week and rainfall
Wednesday and Wednesday night will cause the larger rivers to
rise significantly this week and could reach bankfull by late
in the week into next weekend. It remains uncertain if there
will be any flooding, but at this time it would appear if there
is flooding that it would be minor, but we will continue to
closely monitor the situation.

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.
