Synopsis
A strong cold front will cross the region this afternoon and
will move off the down east coast this evening. High pressure
will slowly build toward the region from the west Monday and
Tuesday and will crest over the area Wednesday. The high will
move east of the area Thursday with a much miler flow of air
into the area at the end of the week.

Near term through tonight
An arctic cold front about 250 miles to the northwest of quebec city
early this morning will rapidly drop south and east and into the
saint john valley around or shortly after noon. The front will
sweep off the down east coast early this evening. As the cold
front pushes into the saint john valley it will be accompanied
by very steep lapse rates of 7-9c km below 850h along with 20-30
kt wind in the well mixed layer. The btv snow squall parameter
indicates the potential for squalls. Expect at least a broken
line of stronger snow showers and possibly a few squalls. The
best chance of stronger snow showers and squalls will be north
of baxter state park, and especially across northern and central
aroostook county. The plan is that a heads up sps will be
issued early this morning to highlight the potential for
stronger snow showers & squalls. As the front pushes south
there will be less moisture to work with, but at least
scattered snow showers may work south toward the coast during
the evening. As the front pushes off the coast a weak wave may
try to develop with the possibility that there could be a
little very light snow or snow showers along the coast, but any
accumulation would be very minor. Much colder air will work into
the region tonight with lows likely dropping below zero in far
northwest maine by morning with single digits north and teens
and low 20s down east.

Short term Monday through Tuesday
Upper level troffing remains in place across the region in the
short term. The airmass across the region will remain
unseasonably cold for this time of year. Another cold front
crosses the region later Monday and Monday night with with a
slight chance of snow showers, mainly northern and central
areas. Otherwise, expect partly sunny skies north both Monday
and Tuesday, with mainly sunny skies downeast. High temperatures
both days will only range from the mid to upper 20s north and
low to mid 30s downeast. Lows Monday night will range from
around zero across the north maine woods to the low to mid teems
downeast.

Long term Tuesday night through Saturday
Surface high builds in for Tuesday night with mainly clear skies.

The high will then build cross the region on Wednesday and then
move east Wednesday night. Fair weather can be expected, with
temperatures on Wednesday climbing back to more seasonal levels
for this time of year. Temperatures moderate even more on
Thursday as the surface high continues east into the open
atlantic with broad southwest flow developing, with highs on
Thursday rising into the 40s regionwide. Uncertainty for late
week with regard to timing of cold front approaching from the
northwest. Ec brings the cold front thru on Friday but GFS is
slower in bringing the front into the area, which would result
in another unseasonably mild day. Continued uncertainty exists
for early next weekend with regard to timing and location of
frontal boundary. A blended model solution approach keeps
temperatures above normal right into early next weekend.

Aviation 07z Sunday through Thursday
Near term:VFR this morning with local lifr in possible heavier
snow showers at the aroostook county terminals this afternoon. In
the wake of a strong cold front conditions will improve toVFR at
the northern terminals late in the afternoon, although pockets of
MVFR are possible tonight, especially around kfve. Wind gusts to 30
knots are also possible in any of the heavy snow showers squalls. At
the down east terminals,VFR conditions are expected through late
afternoon with MVFR possible late this afternoon into this evening
in scattered snow showers. It is possible that areas of MVFR
may persist into the tonight along the coast in very light snow
or snow showers, especially at kbhb.

Short term: generallyVFR through the period, outside any
isolated northern snow showers later Monday.

Marine
Near term: a small craft advisory remains in effect today for
wind and seas. The wind will gradually diminish tonight and
the seas will subside.

Short term: winds seas generally below SCA levels through the
period.

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.
