Synopsis
A warm front will stall across the north tonight as the low
tracks across the area. Low pressure will continue east through
the maritimes on Tuesday.

Near term through Tuesday
A warm front will continue to move northward across the region
this evening as low pressure moves to the west of new england.

This will result in showers and thunderstorms tonight. The low
pressure system will move across the very northern portion of
maine late tonight with showers continuing into Tuesday morning.

A cold front will also move around the back of the low tonight
and approach the region from the west. Showers are expected to
continue across the north on Tuesday as skies become partly
cloudy across the far south.

Short term Tuesday night through Thursday
Tue night wl feature upr low mv into the canadian maritimes with
lingering cyclonic flow acrs the region into the day Wed bfr ridging
builds in. Expect that showers wl come to an end by Wed mrng with
colder temps aloft and mocldy conds keeping temps down blo normal.

If skies can clr Wed night with ridge axis building ovr the region
vly areas may be able to drop under fcst mins Thu mrng. However,
higher level clouds mvg in ahd of next system may impede radn'l
cooling enuf that m u30s acrs the north woods is reasonable. Do not
see any reason at this point to go lower, especially in areas that
are currently active with the growing season (mainly south of a van
buren-greenville line).

Long term Thursday night through Sunday
Upr WV wl approach SRN and WRN areas of the CWA Thu evening and
overnight. Med range guidance is in much better agreement than
it was yda with potential for MCS working its way out of srn
canada drg the overnight pd. Am not confident enuf to go with
lkly pops this far out but confidence is increasing in the
likelihood of seeing rain ovr WRN sxns thur night. Aft system
exits the region Fri morning expect that low clds and cooler
temps wl be left in it's wake with warmest temps acrs the north
in the st. John vly for fri.

Another WV wl appch fm the west on Sat with lkly showers
expected drg the day. As this system mvs east zonal flow wl
dominate the area's wx thru end of the pd.

Aviation 19z Monday through Saturday
Near term: expect MVFR ifr conditions tonight into Tuesday.VFR
conditions are possible across the south Tuesday afternoon.

Short term: with upper low continuing to influence northern
terminals expect MVFR stratus to linger across northern
terminals into Wed afternoon.VFR at all terminals Wed night
through Friday, though may see MVFR restrictions move into bgr
and bhb as showers approach from the north and west.

Marine
Near term: have used the NAM to initialize winds however will
reduce model winds by 50 percent due to expected southwesterly
winds and relatively cold sea surface temperatures (mid 40s).

Currently winds speeds are well under 10 kts. For waves:
currently the primary wave system is southerly swell (around 5
feet 7 seconds). On Tuesday a secondary off-shore wind wave
system will develop but southerly swell will remain the primary
wave group. Will keep SCA for seas in place. Total water level:
surge guidance continues to indicate a negative surge late
tomorrow into Wednesday as winds go off-shore. Will keep the
base tide anomaly near zero.

Short term: wind gusts approach SCA levels Tue night in
northwest flow and cold advection in wake of departing low.

Winds wl diminish on Wed morning and remain below SCA levels
through the end of the week. Seas rmn below 5 feet throughout
the period though outer zones may flirt with SCA levels wed
morning.

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.
