Synopsis
Low pressure tracking north of the region today will bring a
cold front across the area. An upper trough will remain over the
region Thursday and Friday then move east this weekend as
surface high pressure remains to our south and west.

Near term through Thursday
What's left of the showers associated with the approaching cold
front will continue to exit to the east of the maine new
brunswick border by sunrise.

Low pressure at the surface and aloft will remain north of the
state through tonight. Drier air will gradually overspread the
forecast area today in the wake of the passage of the cold
front. Expect skies to become partly to mostly sunny by
afternoon. Dew point temperatures will fall from the mid to
upper 60s early this morning and into the 50s by this afternoon.

It won't be quite as warm this afternoon as it was yesterday
but still a few degrees above normals for this time of year,
with highs in the mid to upper 70s north and upper 70s to near
80 down east. West winds will gust to around 25 mph at times
this afternoon.

Low pressure to our north will continue to weaken as it moves
northeast away from the region tonight and surface high
pressure builds in from the west. Expect partly cloudy to
mainly clear skies across the region. Lows tonight will range
from the upper 40s to lower 50s north and low to mid 50s
central and down east.

Short term Thursday night through Friday night
Thu will begin fair... Drier and cooler to start with increasing
sc cld cvr msly across the N in the aftn with isold shwrs
possible across the far NW as a weak S WV trof alf crosses the
rgn from qb. Any shwrs will dissipate by erly Thu eve with the
loss of day tm htg, leaving fair skies, lgt winds and
radiational cooling late Thu ngt for chilly ovrngt lows spcly
across NRN vlys.

Fri will again begin fair with increasing cldnss in the aftn
along with isold to sct cvrg of shwrs across the N as a more sig
s WV trof alf crosses the rgn from cntrl qb. These shwrs also
will dissipate erly Fri eve as day tm htg is lossed. Hi temps
fri will likely be a few deg cooler than Thu followed by another
cool ngt late Fri ngt as skies clear with lgt winds... Promoting
some radiational cooling.

Long term Saturday through Tuesday
The long term will begin with below avg temps for Sat with a
slow warming trend beginning Sun and cont into erly next week.

Cannot rule out isold shwrs across the N durg the day Sat with
some left ovr upper troffiness indicated by long range models,
otherwise, Sun thru tues looks to be completely rain free as any
weak upper low trof moves E of our rgn into the can maritimes
and sfc hi pres builds toward the rgn from the sw.

Aviation 07z Wednesday through Sunday
Near term: lingering MVFR and ifr conditions in lower clouds,
showers and patchy fog will give way toVFR by afternoon at all

midday with the exception of the intracoastal zone. Winds seas

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
