Synopsis
High pressure slowly moves to the northeast today and into the
canadian maritimes on Tuesday. An upper level trough will move
east into the region around midweek, bringing a chance of
showers and thunderstorms Tuesday night and Wednesday before a
cold front moves through. This cold front will usher cooler and
drier air into the region on Thursday before a warm up begins on
Friday.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
High pressure will crest over eastern maine this morning before
beginning to slide gradually to the east. After some patchy
early morning fog, expect mainly sunny skies and seasonably mild
high temperatures in the 70s. It will be slightly cooler along
the downeast coast during the afternoon hours as winds remain
onshore.

Short term tonight through Tuesday
High pressure will continue to slowly slide east into the
canadian maritimes tonight. However, patchy fog is possible late
at night in the sheltered valleys as the temperatures approach
their dew point values.

High level moisture will begin to advect over the region during
the afternoon hours. However, plenty of sunshine during the
morning will once again allow temperatures to climb into and
through the 70s at h8 readings remain in the +10 to +12 c
range.

Long term Tuesday night through Sunday
A vigorous upper level low for this time of the year will begin
to move through southeast canada Tuesday night. A strong cold
front will approach from the west, bringing scattered showers to
northern and eastern sections of maine, mainly towards morning.

This precipitation will expand in coverage and intensity on
Wednesday as this relatively strong cold front enters the
region. 00z model suite suggests a wave of low pressure may form
along this front during the midday hours, possibly enhancing the
rainfall in a few locations over southern areas. As the
atmosphere destabilizes Wednesday afternoon, the potential for
thunderstorms will increase. With increasing dynamics across the
region with developing winds aloft, a few of the storms may be
strong. This potential has been highlighted in the hazardous
weather outlook.

Any leftover showers will come to an end Wednesday night,
followed by cold air advection and high pressure on Thursday.

Maximum temperatures will be in the mid 60s far north to the mid
70s in the south. A few clouds may develop over the higher
terrain during the midday hours as the upper level trough
crosses the region.

A surface ridge of high pressure will build south of the region
on Friday, allowing for a return flow of southwesterly winds and
warm air advection over northern new england. This will allow
for milder temperatures. This gradual warming trend will
continue into the weekend as high pressure moves off the eastern
seaboard.

Aviation 07z Monday through Friday
Near term: mainlyVFR conditions thru tonight with the
exception of patchy valley fog early this morning and possibly
again late tonight.

Long term:VFR conditions Tuesday night, with some tempo ifr
flight restrictions in shra tsra on Wed into Wed evening.VFR
returns for Thu fri.

Marine
Near term: winds seas will remain below small craft advisory
levels today through Tuesday.

Short term: scas will likely be needed on Wednesday, but
otherwise winds and seas will remain below SCA levels.

warning duties continue to be handled by WFO gyx until the

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.
