Strong high pressure will continue to dominate regional weather
conditions through early next week with mainly clear skies and
very warm, near record-setting temperatures. Sensible conditions
change by the middle to later portions of next week as a
canadian cold front brings cooler weather along with a chance of

Near term through Sunday night
As of 245 pm edt Saturday... More of the same tonight into
Sunday night as deep layer ridging amplifies across the region,
post- tropical cyclone jose slowly dissipates south of nantucket
and major hurricane maria drifts slowly north off the
southeastern seaboard. No impacts from these tropical systems
are expected. As the high bridges overhead an even warmer and
more humid airmass will advect in from the west and south,
setting the stage for record-setting high temperatures on
Sunday. Leaned close to a bias-corrected MOS solution in regard
to temperatures which offers an expected larger than normal
diurnal range through the period. Lows tonight and Sunday night
mainly in the 50s to lower 60s, then solid 80s to locally near
90 in favored warm spots on Sunday. See climate data below for
specific records for today through Tuesday.

Short term Monday through Monday night
As of 320 pm edt Saturday... Little change to the weather is
expected for Monday and Monday night with the upper ridge
remaining in place over the area. Dew points will be on the high
side so the summertime weather will continue. Above normal
highs mainly in the upper 70s and 80s with lows mainly in the
50s and 60s are expected. The higher dew points on Monday will
push heat index values into the lower 90s across the larger
valleys (saint lawrence and champlain).

Long term Tuesday through Saturday
As of 320 pm edt Saturday... Forecast remains on track with a
general flattening of the upper ridge through Wednesday. Warm
temperatures aloft will continue to result in temperatures about
20 degrees above normal on Tuesday and about 15 degrees above
normal on Wednesday. The flow aloft becomes more west to
southwest by Wednesday with models showing mid level short waves
carving out a trough which moves across the region the latter
half of the week. This will result in an increased potential for
showers and possibly a thunderstorm Wednesday afternoon into
the evening. With upper level support will hold on to slight low
chance pops through Saturday. The attendant cold front will
usher in much cooler and more seasonal temperatures for the end
of the work week. Readings may even be below normal by Saturday.

Aviation 19z Saturday through Thursday
Through 18z Sunday... PredominantlyVFR conditions expected
through the TAF period with mostly clear skies. The possible
exception might be some overnight fog and ifr lifr conditions
at kmpv kslk from 07-12z Sunday. Confidence only moderate given
recent dry weather and dry soil conditions. Light winds less
than 10 knots are expected through the period.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at 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.
