Synopsis
A cold front will cross the region today then exit the coast
early tonight. Another cold front will begin to cross the
region Sunday night into Monday.

Near term through tonight
A cold front will slowly cross the region today then exit the
downeast coast early tonight. Showers will be most extensive
this morning, with an isolated thunderstorm also possible. Areas
of fog will also occur across much of the region this morning,
more extensive along the downeast coast where a dense fog
advisory is in effect until 9 am. Shower chances will diminish
this afternoon along with decreasing clouds. An isolated shower
is possible across northern areas mostly early tonight.

Otherwise, expect partly cloudy skies north with mostly clear
skies downeast tonight. High temperatures today will range from
the mid to upper 70s north, to the upper 70s to around 80
interior downeast with mid 70s along the downeast coast. Low
temperatures tonight will range from the mid 50s north, to the
mid to upper 50s downeast.

Short term Sunday through Monday
A surface and upper level low pressure system will be
approaching from the west Sunday. This system is expected to
spread showers across the region during the day. Will also
include the chance of thunder during the afternoon with unstable
conditions expected. Showers and thunderstorms are also expected
Sunday night and Monday as the low pressure system moves across
the state then off to the east.

Long term Monday night through Friday
Another low pressure system is expected to move across the
region Tuesday resulting in showers. A cold front will move
across the state Wednesday. The cold front will then stall
Wednesday night then move back northward as a warm front
Thursday resulting in showers through the period. Showers are
expected again Friday as another low pressure system approaches
the region from the west.

Aviation 09z Saturday through Wednesday
Near term: ifr lifr, with local vlifr, conditions will occur
across the region early this morning. Conditions will improve to
MVFR levels later this morning through early afternoon.

GenerallyVFR conditions are then expected across the region
later this afternoon through tonight, though occasional MVFR
conditions are possible across the north and mountains.

Short term:VFR, with occasional MVFR ifr, conditions are
expected Sunday into Monday. MVFR ifr conditions are then
expected Tuesday into Wednesday.

Marine
Near term: a small craft advisory remains in effect for much of
the waters, with the exception of the intracoastal waters,
through 8 am. The small craft advisory might then need to be
extended for seas into the afternoon. Visibilities will be
significantly reduced in fog today into this evening. Showers
are also possible today.

Short term: have used the NAM for sustained winds then transition
to the super blend winds Monday evening. For waves: a long
fetch from the gulf of maine extending southward Saturday will
keep wave heights elevated due to swell on Sunday and Monday.

Will use the nearshore wave prediction system for wave grids.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
