Synopsis
High pressure will move away to the east as a frontal boundary
stalls across the north. Low pressure will approach today and
track across the gulf of maine tonight.

Near term through tonight
Update 6:00 am: have made adjustments based on latest
observations. No other changes.

A cold front is expected to stall across the the region during
the day today. An area of low pressure is then expected to move
from southwest to northeast along the front today and tonight
producing rain across the region. In addition an upper low
pressure system will approach from the northwest today and begin
to move across the state tonight and produce additional rain and
showers.

Short term Friday through Saturday night
By 12z Fri sfc lopres wl be ovr the gulf of maine with rain ovr srn
and cntrl zones. Cannot rule out locally heavy rain ovr downeast
areas thru 15z Fri mrng. As low heads twd the bay of fundy Fri aftn,
expect rain to slowly wind down ovr the north and west. H5 low wl
cont to spin ovr the canadian maritimes on Sat with minor
disturbances rippling thru in NW flow with contd chcs for showers.

Best chc for showers looks to be Sat aftn as upr lvl cold pool mvs
ovr cwa.

Sat wl lkly feature high temperatures similar to Friday's values
though likely warmer ovr downeast with offshore flow and less rain
expected. Expect Sat wl feature breezy conds as NW winds wl lkly
gust upwards of 30mph, especially acrs the north.

Long term Sunday through Wednesday
Sunday wl feature cont'd cyclonic flow tho upr lvl ridge axis wl
slowly build twd the northeast fm the midwest. Sun and Mon wl both
feature pleasant wx acrs the entire area with temps near to slightly
abv normal each day.

Med range guidance disagrees on the extent the ridge breaks down on
tue with operational GFS breaking it down faster than the 00z cmc
and 12z ec. 00z GFS ensemble mean is slower to break the ridge down
as well, therefore hv backed slightly off on pops drg the day tue.

By mid-week med range guidance begin to differ even more with regard
to upr lvl pattern. 00z GFS bcms more zonal and mvs wave thru
quickly with chcs for showers thru the end of the week. Meanwhile
00z cmc keeps ridge over CWA thru 00z Thu bfr breaking it down as
deep h5 trof digs into the great lks. 00z ec breaks ridge down by
00z Wed with chcs for showers thru the end of the week.

Aviation 10z Thursday through Monday
Near term: expect MVFR ifr conditions today and tonight.

Short term: ifr expected Fri morning for all terminals but
expect improvement for terminals north of hul by mid-late
morning to MVFR. Downeast terminals likely to remain ifr thru
18z Fri before slowly improving. All terminals likely to beVFR
mid-late afternoon Fri but northern terminals may see showers
sat afternoon.VFR expected all terminals into Monday under high
pressure.

Marine
Near term: have used the NAM to initialize the wind grids and
will reduce the model wind speed by 15 percent due to relatively
cold sea surface temperature. For waves: currently intermediate
period swell (1 - 2 feet 6-7 seconds) is the primary wave
system. Expect this wave group to persist today and tonight.

Long period southeasterly swell (around 1 foot 12-13 seconds)
has also been showing up in spectra from 44027 and expected this
system to also persist into tonight as a secondary wave system.

Total water level: current observations along the coast
indicate a +0.40 to +0.50 anomaly so will adjust the base tide
anomaly to +0.40 through Friday morning then slowly reduce it
over the next several days.

Short term: areas of fog likely lingering over the waters on
Friday morning. Winds and seas will remain below SCA levels
through the weekend.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
