Prev discussion blo...

lgt sn has overspread NRN ptns of the fa as of mid aftn, and
will cont into eve before winding down late tonight as an
alberta clipper S WV crosses the fa. Measurable lgt snfl will
be confined to the N hlf, and msly the NW quarter where MAX amts
of an inch or two is xpctd, further S and E ovr N cntrl and ne
ptns of the fa amts will be arnd an inch with lesser or no amts
s of these areas. Aft much milder ovrngt lows, a weak cold front
will cross the fa on the trailing side of the S WV alf by erly
mon morn, with marginal arctic air, meaning that although it
will be a little breezy on mon, hi temps will be milder by a few
deg f ovr the N and cntrl. It looks attm, that sc cld cvr will
hold on across the N mon, as is typical this tm of year.

Short term tonight through Wednesday
High pressure is expected to build across the region early
Tuesday then move to the east. A weak cold front will move
across the state Tuesday night but do not expect any
precipitation. Strong high pressure will then build in from the
northwest on Wednesday with mostly sunny conditions.

Long term Wednesday night through Sunday
The strong high pressure system is expected to move to the east
into the atlantic on Thursday. Moderating temperatures are
expected Thursday in the return flow behind the departing high.

Clouds will increase on Friday as warmer air moves in aloft with
intense low pressure approaching the northeast from the
southwest. Snow is expected to develop on Saturday as low
pressure moves to the west of new england and a secondary low
pressure system develops along the coast. Snow is expected to
change to rain in all areas later Saturday as warmer air moves
in aloft. Will use the GFS surface temperatures for this event.

Aviation 06z Monday through Friday
Near term: MVFR expected at fve, car and pqi through mon
afternoon in stratocu and light snow this evening.VFR at hul
though MVFR CIGS expected btwn 04-12z. Downeast terminals will
beVFR thru end of TAF valid time.

Marine
Near term: extended SCA by 2 hrs this morning with marginal
wind gusts fcst to cont until 11z. Optd to go with a marginal
sca for winds for our outer mzs only, with WV hts possibly
reaching near 5ft ovr outer most waters later this eve into the
ovrngt with winds and seas subsiding below SCA by daybreak mon
and remaining so. Winds and seas for our inner bay harbor mz052
will remain below SCA criteria during the entire near term. Kept
close to a nwps ww3 guidance blend for fcst WV hts.

Short term: will use the NAM to initialize winds. For waves: on
Tuesday expected long period southeasterly swell to arrive from
a storm in the mid-atlantic with waves building to around around
2 feet 9-10 seconds. This wave system will be accompanied by a
secondary northeasterly wind wave (2 feet 5 seconds). This bi-
modal wave spectrum is expected to continue into Thursday. Waves
are expected to subside. Total water level: will decrease the
base tide anomaly from +.04 feet to +0.10 feet base on tidal

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.
