Synopsis
A cold front will cross the area tonight. High pressure will build
down from central canada Saturday into Saturday night and crest over
the region on Sunday. Low pressure will approach from the west
Sunday night into Monday.

Near term /through Saturday/
18z sfc analysis showed warm front lift across the region
w/radar showing activity filling back in across central and
downeast areas. Activity was in the form of light snow w/very
light accumulations(< 1 inch) due to melting. Some sites across
northern maine such as mlt and hul seeing some light snow.

Temps across the central and downeast areas were tempered down a
bit today given the snow averaging the lower 30s. Temps should
warm a bit was precip lightens up. Further n, temps rose into
the upper 20s and lower 30s w/little or no snow. 12z ua showed a
nice jet streak in the 850-700 mb layer helping to ignite the
first batch of snow. The 12z run of the NAM and the latest hrrr
show this batch well and pushing as the warm front lifts n.

The next wave of snow will come this evening mainly affecting
the downeast and southern maine region. Kept 60-80% across
central and downeast areas this evening and then drop them off
sharply by midnight w/the loss of mid level forcing. Total
accumulations expected are in the 1-2 inch range w/highest
amounts across interior downeast. Partial clearing later tonight
as the cold front pushes across the region. Overnight temps
forecast to be in the upper 20s across the N and W while central
and downeast will see low/mid 20s.

High pres is expected to slide east from central canada on
Saturday. There should be a good deal of sunshine w/a NW breeze
of 10-15 mph. Despite the breeze, daytime temps should respond
to the march sunshine. Decided to go above the guidance on
Saturday maxes showing well into the 30s across N and W and
low to mid 40s central and downeast areas.

Short term /Saturday night through Monday/
High pressure building down from canada will bring a starlit and
cold night Saturday night followed by a mostly sunny morning Sunday
morning. High pressure will crest over the region on Sunday bringing
tranquil conditions. Skies will begin mostly sunny. Some high
cloudiness streaming over the top of the ridge will dim sunshine a
bit during the afternoon. Clouds will then increase Sunday night
ahead of low pressure approaching from the west. Some light snow may
begin to push into western and downeast areas toward morning Monday
morning. Light snow is likely across the area on Monday as a weak
upper level shortwave and disorganized surface low moves through.

Precipitation amount's looks like with only an inch or two of snow
expected over inland locations. With temperatures rising well into
the 30s, road surfaces should just be wet during the midday and
afternoon on Monday.

Long term /Monday night through Friday/
One weak wave of low pressure will slide by to the east Monday night
with any snow tapering off to flurries and skies remaining cloudy
with low clouds lingering. Another weak upper level shortwave and
surface low will approach on Tuesday. Another round of light snow is
likely late Tuesday into Tuesday night. Boundary layer temperatures
will be warmer with this second system and snow will likely change
to rain across downeast areas Tuesday night. Precipitation will end
downeast on Wednesday. However, snow may linger across the north
into Wednesday afternoon. An inverted trough from developing low
pressure south of nova scotia will likely extend across the north
and combine with an upper low moving over the region to extend snow
or a mix of snow and rain across the north. The low will continue
east Wednesday night into Thursday as gusty northwest winds follow.

Flurries and lingering clouds are likely north with some clearing
downeast. High pressure will build over the area Thursday night
bringing clearing and lighter winds. Another weak shortwave may
approach with clouds and some light precipitation on Friday.

Aviation /18z Friday through Wednesday/
Near term:VFR conditions for fve, car, pqi, and hul
occasionally reduced to MVFR in snowshowers. Ifr conditions in
snow for bhb and bgr, changing to a mix of rain and snow then to
rain as a cold front moves through the area. The front will move
through the area by around midnight, conditions at all sites
improving toVFR from north to south starting at around 9 pm
tonight fve and car will becomeVFR, 11 pm pqi and hul and
around midnight bgr and bhb. Sites will remainVFR to the end
of the period.

Short term:VFR conditions in mostly clear skies are expected
Saturday night through Sunday. Conditions may lower to MVFR
downeast late Sunday night and remainVFR across the north.

Mainly ifr conditions in low clouds are then likely Monday into
Tuesday.

Marine
Near term: an SCA remain in effect for the coastal waters. Winds
and seas will continue to build this evening. Winds will begin
to subside late this evening falling below SCA by midnight. Seas
will remain above 5 ft until around 8 am tomorrow. Winds and
seas will continue to subside tomorrow as higher pressure builds
across the waters.

Short term: winds will be below SCA Saturday
night into Monday morning as high pressure crests over the
waters. A SCA may be needed late Monday into Monday night for
east southeast winds ahead of approaching low pressure. Winds
may diminish a bit on Tuesday as weak low pressure south of nova
scotia moves away and another small low begins to approach from
the appalachians.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
