Synopsis
Today will be mild as sunshine and west winds help push
readings into the 50s. A cold front will cross the region
tonight into early Monday and could produce some snow showers
in the mountains. It turns colder for the first half of the
week, with Tuesday the coldest day, but a late week warming
trend will push temps into the 50s, and maybe low 60s by Friday
and Saturday.

Near term through today
A nice weather Sunday will be had today as the region will be
sandwiched between high pressure to our south and a cold front
moving southward from quebec. Winds will be much lighter today
and there will be plenty of sunshine. Temperatures will respond
by climbing into the 50s at most locations, with a 60 degree
reading not out of the question in southeast nh. As the cold
front progresses southward, increasing clouds are likely across
far northern zones. A few snow and or rain showers will be
possible by the end of the day near the canadian border.

Short term tonight through 6 pm Monday
Cold front pushes south of the forecast area tonight. The front
will be moisture starved, so only a period of cloudy weather is
expected. The exception will be in the mountains where a period
of light snow showers will be possible. High pressure will build
in behind the front on Monday. The result will be sunny skies,
but temperatures a good 10 degrees colder than what we will see
today.

Long term Monday night through Saturday
Models continue to gradually trend away from +pna pattern, or
at least to much less simplified +pna pattern. Still will have
to deal with a couple of below normal temps, before temps rise
to above normal late in the week. Persistent blocking over the
atlantic will provide fair wx right through the end of the week.

Expecting secondary push of cold air Monday night early Tuesday
as 500 mb energy rotates around closed low near labrador. Models
showing nothing more than an increase in clouds across the n
with this wave, and the coldest air at 850 mb pushing through
Tuesday into Tue night. Still, as is often the case, as we get
closer the arrival of the cold air, models back off the cold a
bit, and show a more modified airmass, but still below normal.

Highs on Tuesday will be in the upper 20s N to upper 30s in the
south, with lows Tue night 5-10 above in the N to around 20 in
the south. Wed will see the coldest air moving out, and temps
will be several degrees warmer than Tuesday and closer to
normal, but still a little below. Wed night might end up colder
than Tue night is some spots as we head into a favorable rad
cooling set up.

Thu-sat will see a continued warming, but quick look at 00z op
euro shows a cooler soln. However, will not bite on one run,
and eps has supported the warming trend for several days now,
but would hesitant to go too warm at this point. Either way ti
looks generally dry right into Saturday.

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.
