Near term through Saturday
1010 pm update updated to keep thing current, made minor
adjustments to the hourly temperatures and skycon.

Previous discussion a warm front lifting into the region
tonight combined with a weak surface low along the coast will
provide focus for an area of rain moving across the region
tonight. Most of rain will be concentrated along coastal
downeast where the surface wave will provide focus for
precipitation. Rainfall further north across central and
northern areas is expected to be generally light and spotty.

Have worded precipitation as rain downeast this evening with
showers further north, then showers throughout the region later
tonight as precipitation tapers off. A dry push surging in from
the southwest in the mid levels will end showers late tonight
into Saturday morning. Some breaks of sunshine are possible
during the midday, especially down toward the southwest. There
will be another chance for more showers later in the day as a
surface occlusion pushes in from the west. The air will be warm
and humid across the area on Saturday.

Short term Saturday night through Monday
An occluded front will cross the region Saturday night, with an
upper level trof approaching late. Expect mostly cloudy skies

Monday night with a cold front approaching northern areas late.

The front should stall in the vicinity of northern maine Tuesday
though the exact location where this occurs is still uncertain.

Low pressure tracking northeast from the great lakes will then
begin to draw the front back north in the form of a warm front
later Tuesday. Expect a chance of showers across the region
Tuesday through Tuesday night, with the slight chance of an
afternoon thunderstorm across northern areas. The low will
track northwest of the region Wednesday, though the exact track
is still uncertain. The low will draw a cold front across the

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.
