Synopsis
A cold front will exit the downeast coast overnight. High
pressure will build down from the northwest Monday into Tuesday
then crest over the area Tuesday night. High pressure will slide
east of the area Wednesday into Thursday.

Near term through Monday
12:19 am update: a cold front extends across interior down east
and will push offshore overnight. Mrms and area radars indicate
a band of some light snow showers or flurries along the front.

Little in the way of accumulation is expected. Across the north,
there are more breaks in the clouds, and the sky is clear in
most areas to the north and northwest of baxter state park.

Estcourt station is down to 9f as of midnight while bangor is
still in the mid 30s. Made some adjustments to the forecast
elements based on the latest observations, radar, and satellite;
but overall the ongoing forecast handles the expected
conditions well.

Previous discussion... Arctic high pressure building in from
the northwest will push much colder and drier air across the
region Monday. Westerly winds are expected to be strong aloft on
Monday and forecast soundings show the mixing layer reaching
almost 10k ft late in the afternoon. Sustained winds will be 40
to 45 kt at that level. This will result in some strong wind
gusts across the area with the strongest gusts likely during the
mid to late afternoon when the deep mixing pulls momentum from
the upper winds down to the surface. The sky will be mostly
clear downeast. However, the north will be partly cloudy where
some moisture in the longwave trough aloft will produce cumulus
clouds. A few flurries can't be ruled out during the afternoon
across the north.

Short term Monday night through Wednesday
A low pressure system exiting over the canadian maritimes will
leave a few lingering showers across northern maine at the start
of the period. Higher pressure will build across early in the
period and will dominate the weather through the end of the
period.

Loaded a blend of the GFS nam ECMWF gem to smooth out the minor
differences in the models. Used nwpscg1car for seas in the
coastal waters. Used wind gust by factor through 12z added 15
kts to wnds for gusts, used gyx wnd gust tool for gust for the
remainder of short term. Used GFS for qpf.

Long term Wednesday night through Sunday
A high pressure ridge southeast of maine will continue to move
east as a low southwest of james bay will with its associated
front will move toward maine reaching northwest maine by
Thursday evening. The front will move through the state Friday
evening, but will move back across southern maine as a warm
front early Saturday morning. The system will finally clear the
area Sunday afternoon. Higher pressure will build into western
maine Sunday afternoon and will dominate the weather through the
end of the period.

Loaded a blend to smooth out the differences in the models,
however the solution leans more towards the ECMWF solution. Used
nawave4 for seas in the coastal waters. Used windgust by factor
tool.

Aviation 04z Monday through Friday
Near term: occasional MVFR conditions are possible in the
vicinity of the cold front, mostly across central and downeast
portions of the forecast area through the early morning hours.

Otherwise,VFR conditions are expected across the region
overnight through Monday. West to northwest winds could gust up
to 25 to 30 mph Monday.

Short term: a few lingerings showers over fve and car with MVFR
conditions early, otherwiseVFR all sites through Wednesday
morning. MVFR with shower across fve Wednesday morning,VFR
elsewhere. Low MVFR conditions move into maine from northwest
to southeast Thursday afternoon as a cold frontal system moves
into the state and will transit through Thursday night through
Friday morning, conditions improving toVFR by Friday afternoon
as the frontal system moves exits the region.

Marine
Near term: conditions will remain below small craft advisory
levels overnight through early Monday. A small craft advisory
could be needed Monday afternoon.

Short term: high pressure will dominate the waters through most
of the period. Winds and seas will remain below SCA conditions
through Thursday. A small craft advisory for seas may be
required for Friday.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
