Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

630 pm edt Sat jun 23 2018

Synopsis
High pressure will move east of the area this evening. Weak low
pressure will track south of the area tonight. A stronger low
will cross the gulf of maine Sunday night then exit across the
maritimes Monday.

Near term through Sunday
6:30 pm update: minor adjustments to the pop grids early this
evening downeast based on the latest observations and radar
trends. Otherwise, the ongoing forecast is in fine shape with
only minor edits for the latest observations and expected
conditions tonight.

Previous discussion:
a weak wave of low pressure will move across the gulf of maine
tonight and generate several hours of rain in the southern 2 3
of the forecast area. Amounts should total less a quarter inch
in most areas, but there is some elevated instability that could
produce locally heavier amounts. This instability is associated
with a thermal ridge at h850 and will mostly affect southern
penobscot county as well as hancock and washington counties.

Additional low level moisture advecting in with the low pressure
will also introduce some areas of fog towards the coast later
tonight into early Sunday morning. Lows tonight will be in the
lower 50s. Sunday will be a more humid day, but clouds will
limit highs to the lower 70s for the most part... And even lower
towards the coast due to the sea breeze. A cold front will
slide southward from quebec into the saint john valley during
Sunday and set off some showers, but the front will stall as a
potent shortwave upper level trough approaches from the eastern
great lakes region with cyclogenesis in southern new england
later Sunday.

Short term Sunday night through Tuesday
Surface low pressure will cross the gulf of maine Sunday night,
then exit across the maritimes Monday. Rain is expected across
the forecast area Sunday night into early Monday. An upper level
trof then crosses the region Monday afternoon. Cold air aloft
with the upper trof will steepen mid level lapse rates which
will help support the chance of showers Monday afternoon along
with partly sunny skies. With the upper trof exiting and loss of
diurnal heating any lingering showers will end Monday evening.

High pressure then builds across the region Monday night through
Tuesday. Cloud cover will decrease Monday night, with mostly
sunny skies Tuesday. Temperatures will be at below normal levels
Monday, with near normal level temperatures Tuesday.

Long term Tuesday night through Saturday
High pressure will exit to the east early Wednesday, with low
pressure tracking across quebec province drawing a warm front
toward the region late. Cloud cover will increase later
Wednesday, with showers Wednesday night. The warm front will
cross the region Thursday, with a weakening cold front trof
approaching late. Mostly cloudy skies along with showers are
expected across the region Thursday. The remnants of the cold
front trof could support the chance of a shower Friday.

Surface upper level ridging will then build across the region
later Friday into Saturday with warming temperatures. Dependent
on the location of the upper ridge, convective complexes moving
over the top of the ridge could affect the region Saturday.

Near normal level temperatures are expected Thursday. Above
normal level temperatures are expected Wednesday, then again
Friday Saturday.

Aviation 00z Sunday through Thursday
Near term: mostlyVFR conditions are anticipated through the
period except at bhb where a brief period of possible ifr cigs
this evening will be followed by a prolonged period of MVFR cigs
in rain for the rest of the night into early Sunday morning.

Otherwise, several hours of ifr CIGS are possible at hul late
tonight and some MVFR CIGS are possible north of hul Sunday
morning.

Short term: MVFR to lifr conditions are expected Sunday night
through early Monday, with occasional MVFR conditions possible
later Monday.VFR conditions are expected Monday night into
early Wednesday. MVFR to lifr conditions are expected Wednesday
night into Thursday.

Marine
Near term: areas of fog are expected to move across the waters
tonight into early Sunday. Otherwise, light winds are forecast,
but longer period south swell will increase towards 3 to 4 feet
by Sunday evening.

Short term: winds seas are generally expected to remain below
small craft advisory levels Sunday night through Tuesday.

However, conditions could approach small craft advisory levels
later Sunday night into early Monday. Visibilities will be
reduced in rain Sunday night through early Monday, with a chance
of showers later Monday.

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.
