Synopsis
Low pressure off the newfoundland coast will pull away into the
north atlantic today. High pressure to the west of the area will
build into new england Sunday. The high will crest over the
area Monday then exit to the east Tuesday.

Near term through tonight
Low pressure along the newfoundland labrador coast will continue to
pull away into the open north atlantic today and tonight. The region
will remain in a cool northwest flow around the low today.

Steep low level lapse rates and a moderate pressure gradient
will cause the wind to pick up out of the northwest. Gusts of 20
to 25 mph are expected late this morning and afternoon, but
perhaps to 30 to 35 mph across the higher terrain. There will be
a decent cumulus deck around 4-6k ft agl with isolated showers
to develop. The model soundings even have a tiny bit of mid
level CAPE this afternoon. The showers would most likely take
the form of rain. Temperatures this afternoon will be cool with
highs mostly in the 40s. The wind will diminish this evening and
the sky will gradually clear from the west as high pressure
builds toward the region. A rain or snow showers is possible
until around midnight, especially across the eastern half of the
cwa. Lows tonight will mostly be in the 20s, with low to mid
30s along the immediate shoreline.

Short term Sunday through Monday night
High pressure will build toward the region Sunday, then cross
the region Sunday night through Monday night. Generally expect
partly cloudy mostly clear skies across northern areas Sunday
through Monday night, with mostly clear skies downeast.

Temperatures will be at near normal, to slightly below normal,
levels Sunday. Slightly above normal level temperatures are
expected Monday.

Long term Tuesday through Friday
High pressure will exit to the east Tuesday, with partly sunny
skies north and mostly sunny downeast. Clouds will increase
Tuesday night. Low pressure will then lift toward southern new
england Wednesday, with high pressure ridged to the north.

Mostly cloudy skies along with a chance of rain is expected
Wednesday. The low will track northeast Thursday, though whether
the track is more offshore toward nova scotia or across the
gulf of maine is still uncertain. A track across the gulf of
maine would bring a better chance of rain Thursday,
particularly downeast. A more offshore track would limit rain
potential. Uncertainty persists Friday regarding another
possible low approaching from the west which could keep a chance
of rain showers across the forecast area. Above normal level
temperatures are expected Tuesday. Near normal, to slightly
above normal, level temperatures are expected Wednesday through
Friday.

Aviation 08z Saturday through Wednesday
Near term:VFR today and tonight, but brief high end MVFR
ceilings are possible today and into this evening, especially at
the northern terminals from khul to kfve. A northwest wind will
increase today with gusts of 20-25 knots at the terminals from
around 15z to 23z.

Short term:VFR conditions are expected across the region
Sunday through Tuesday. MVFR conditions are possible Wednesday.

Marine
Near term: the wind and seas will remain below small craft advisory
levels through tonight with mostly long period swell of less
than 5 ft.

Short term: winds seas are expected to remain below small craft
advisory levels Sunday through Monday night.

Hydrology
Aside from the risk of an isolated ice jam forming on one of the
northern rivers no flooding is expected this weekend into early
next week. The ice should finally get flushed out next week with
a significant warmup that will lead to a lot of snowmelt. By
mid-late next week, the rivers will be running high due to
snowmelt, but whether there is any flooding will likely depend
on how much rain falls late in the week. The situation will need
to be closely monitored through the week.

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.
