Synopsis
High pressure will build toward the region through tonight then
cross the region Saturday. Low pressure will cross the region
later Sunday into Monday.

Near term through tonight
Update...

no big changes to previous forecast as elements remain on track
through this afternoon. The SCA was cancelled for the coastal
waters.

Previous discussion... High pressure will build toward the
region today through tonight. Across the north and mountains
expect a mostly sunny morning, then partly cloudy this afternoon
with scattered flurries. Wind gusts up to around 25 mph could
also cause patchy blowing snow across mostly northern areas.

Mostly sunny skies are expected downeast today. Skies will
remain partly cloudy across the north and mountains tonight,
with mostly clear skies downeast. High temperatures today will
range from the mid 20s north, to the mid 30s interior downeast
with mid to upper 30s along the downeast coast. Low temperatures
tonight will generally range through the single digits above
and below zero north, to 10 to 15 interior downeast with mid
teens along the downeast coast. Locally colder readings are
possible across the entire region.

Short term Saturday through Sunday night
Strong high pressure is expected to be over the region Saturday
morning. This system will then move eastward into the atlantic
during the day Saturday as intense low pressure moves northeast
into the great lakes. Clouds will increase during the day
Saturday and snow is expected to develop across the region
Saturday night as warm air advection ahead of the great lakes
low develops. A secondary low is expected to develop south of
new england early Sunday as the primary low continues to move
northeast into canada. The secondary low will move northeastward
along the maine coast late Sunday and Sunday evening. This will
result in continued snow in the north and snow changing to
sleet and rain in the coastal areas and south central portions
of the region. Will use the surface temperatures for
precipitation type and snow ratios for snow amounts. Snow is
expected to transition to snow showers early Monday.

Long term Monday through Thursday
Expect gusty winds, snow showers, and cold temperatures Monday
into early Tuesday as intense low pressure remains to the north
of the state. High pressure is expected to build in from the
west later Tuesday and crest over the region Wednesday morning.

Another low is expected to approach from the west Wednesday
night.

Aviation 15z Friday through Tuesday
Near term: local MVFR conditions are possible across the north
and mountains today. Otherwise,VFR conditions are expected
across the region today through tonight. Northwest winds will
gust up to around 25 mph today.

Short term:VFR conditions are expected Saturday. Ifr lifr
conditions are expected Sunday and Monday. MVFR conditions are
expected Tuesday.

Marine
Near term: there may be a few gusts up to 25 kt this afternoon
otherwise winds seas will remain below SCA levels through this
afternoon. Conditions could then approach small craft advisory
levels again tonight. Light freezing spray is expected later
tonight.

Short term: will use the NAM to initialize winds then transition
to the super blend winds early Monday. For waves: the primary
wave system is expected to be long period southeasterly swell
(1-2 feet 8 seconds) Saturday into early Sunday. A significant
southeasterly fetch is expected to develop across the gulf of
maine on Sunday and continue into Sunday evening until broken
up by a wind shift later Sunday evening. Off-shore wind wave is
then expected to become the primary wave system Sunday night
into Monday with a secondary subsiding southeasterly swell. The
off-shore wind wave is expected to persist into Tuesday. Total
water level: a post surge is persisting along the maine coast
and is expected to subside during the next 48 hours. Will adjust
for this in the base tide anomaly as surge guidance is not
handling this. Another significant surge is expected on Sunday
as southeasterly winds increase. Surge guidance looks reasonable
with a maximum surge of 1.50 feet late Sunday so will keep the
base tide anomaly close to zero. Maximum surge occurs closer to
low tide so threat at this time appears minimal. In bangor a
large positive anomaly continues to persist at low tide due to
ice. Will stay close to RFC guidance with some minor adjustments
a low tide.

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.
