1152 pm edt Sun aug 20 2017

Synopsis
High pressure will build south of the area overnight and
Monday. Low pressure will approach from the west on Tuesday. The
low will track to our north Tuesday night into Wednesday as it
pulls a cold front across the area.

Near term through Monday
1150 pm update...

a few clouds associated with a weak disturbance to our
northwest will bring few clouds across the crown of maine
overnight. Otherwise, expect mainly clear skies across the
region. Some patchy fog cant be ruled out in areas that had
shower activity this afternoon as pointed out by previous shift,
so will maintain patchy fog. Other than tweaking hourly
temps dew points no significant changes needed to going
forecast.

Previous discussion...

skies will become mostly clear across the area as high pressure
builds to our south and an upper level shortwave slides away to
the east. High pressure along the east coast combined with
upper level ridging over our area will then bring a mostly sunny
and very warm day on Monday for our partial eclipse. Highs will
be in the low to mid 80s over most inland locations with cooler
temps along the coast. Moisture rounding the top of the ridge
may stray into northern areas late in the day bringing some
patchy clouds. There may be a stray shower in far northwestern
areas late in the afternoon. Otherwise, dry weather is expected
across the region on Monday.

Short term Monday night through Wednesday
Weak high pressure is expected to be over the region Monday
night. An intensifying low pressure system will move northeast
from the great lakes into canada during the day Tuesday. A cold
front behind this low will approach the region from he west
late Tuesday and move across new england Tuesday night. Showers
and thunderstorms ahead of this front are expected Tuesday
afternoon into Tuesday night. Showers are expected into early
Wednesday as an upper level trough moves across the region.

Clearing is then expected Wednesday night.

Long term Wednesday night through Sunday
An upper level trough will approach from the west Wednesday
night and move across the north Thursday. This system may bring
some showers and clouds to the north on Thursday, otherwise
expect partly sunny conditions. A northwesterly flow is
expected to persist into the weekend keeping temperatures
relatively cool. Will use the super blend for this period.

Aviation 04z Monday through Friday
Near term:VFR conditions are expected across the area tonight
and Monday.

Short term: MVFR conditions are expected Tuesday.VFR conditions
are expected Wednesday and Thursday.

Marine
Near term: a few wind gusts out of the west may approach 25 kt
over the offshore waters Monday afternoon. Otherwise, winds and
seas are expected to remain below SCA through Monday.

Short term: for winds have used the NAM winds to initialize
grids then have reduced the model winds by 15 percent to adjust
for boundary conditions. Will transition to the super blend
winds late Wednesday. For waves: the primary wave system Tuesday
and Wednesday is expected to be southerly wind wave. Waves are
expected to build o 4-5 feet 6-7 seconds Wednesday as a
southerly fetch develops across the gulf of maine. Southeasterly
longer period swell (2-3 feet 8-9 seconds)is expected to become
the primary wave system on Thursday and Friday. Will use the
nearshore wave prediction system (nwps) for wave grids. Will
lower wave heights 1 foot below nwps model due to expected high
bias in boundary waves.

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.
