Synopsis
High pressure will crest over maine late tonight. A weak area of
low pressure will cross the area Friday night. High pressure
will move back into the area Saturday and Saturday night.

Near term through Friday
Strong high pressure will approach the region from the west this
evening then crest over the state late tonight into Friday
morning. The high will then move to the east. Have initialized
temperature with super blend then lower minimum temperature
tonight several degrees in anticipation of radiational cooling.

Clouds will increase later Friday morning in the return flow
behind the high. As low pressure moves to the northeast of the
great lakes, over-running precipitation will break out across
the region with most of the precipitation in the form of snow
during the day Friday. Have used a 50 50 blend of the NAM and
gfs in the precipitation from thickness tool for precipitation
type. Snow amounts generated using the snow ratio grids.

Short term Friday night through Sunday

northeast tomorrow with 1040mb sfc high shifting east into the

Marine
Near term: have used a 50 50 blend of the NAM and GFS for
sustained winds. Winds are expected to veer into the northeast
as high pressure passes to the north of the waters tonight. For
waves: currently spectral data from 44027 indicates the primary
wave system is in the form of southerly swell (2 feet 7 seconds)
with a secondary north to northeasterly wind wave which is
currently less than 1 foot. Later tonight the swell system will
continue to subside with northeasterly wind wave becoming the
primary wave group.

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.
