Synopsis
An upper level disturbance will cross the region today. High
pressure will begin to build east tonight and Sunday.

Near term through tonight
10 am update...

adjusted sky cvr this mrng to be a little more optimistic acrs
majority of the area, outside of NW zones. Sfc low acrs NRN new
england wl continue to fill today with an isold snow shower
possible for the next few hrs. Quick update to ingest latest
obs and tweak sky grids for the near term. No other chgs needed.

Previous discussion blo...

an upper disturbance crossing the region today will bring
mainly cloudy skies and isolated snow showers or flurries to the
region this morning. In addition, low pressure will move well
east of the gulf of maine this morning, bringing a little light
snow to the down east coast. Any light snow down east early this
morning will quickly taper off by mid day, as the low continues
to pull off to the east. Any snow accumulation across the
region this morning will be less than an inch. Otherwise, mainly
cloudy skies this morning will gradually give way to partial
clearing by late afternoon. High temperatures will once again be
below normal today, with highs ranging from the mid to upper
teens north and low to mid 20s down east.

High pressure will slowly build east toward the region tonight
with mainly clear to partly cloudy skies expected. With the high
still well off to our west there should still be a bit of a
northwest wind to inhibit much in the way of radiational
cooling. However, lows tonight will still be very cold, with a
few sub zero readings expected across the far north. Couldn't
rule out marginal wind chill advisory criteria across the far
northwest for a few hours tonight. Otherwise, lows tonight
across central and down east areas will generally range from 5
to 10 above.

Short term Sunday through Monday
Artic air will msly hold thru most of the short term...

sun will be msly sunny brisk and cold with llvl cold advcn
weakening by late aftn. With the apch and passage of the sfc hi
ovr the rgn Sun eve into the ovrngt hrs, winds should become lgt
and vrbl. This will allow for some radiational cooling with some
arctic sfc base invsn potential particularly ovr NRN vlys before
hi mid cldnss crosses into the fa from the W late Sun ngt, which
will result in temps lvlng off and even slowly rising by erly
mon morn.

Clds will thicken spcly ovr the cntrl and SRN ptns of the fa mon
morn with a chc of lgt sn ovr these areas thru Mon aftn as a
weak S WV crosses from cntrl qb, with somewhat lesser cld cvr
ovr NRN third.

Any lgt sn ovr the cntrl downeast areas will move E of the rgn
mon eve with minimal sn accumulations of less than an inch, leaving
ptly to msly cldy skies and not as cold air later Mon ngt, not
allowing for as cold of ovrngt lows.

Long term Monday night through Friday
00z models indicate two more progressive S wvs movg across the
fa from cntrl can Tue and Tue ngt, with lgt sn Tue aftn eve msly
for NRN ptns of the rgn and sn shwrs late Tue ngt into wed
morn. Downeast and cntrl ptns of the fa may become mild enough
later Tue aftn into Tue eve for a mix of lgt rn sn or even all
lgt rn as sfc winds become S ahead of a warm occluded front.

Max snfl accumulations will be msly in the 1 to 2 inch range
across the far n. Mdtly strong llvl cold advcn will occur behind
the second S WV later Wed into Wed ngt with brisk NW winds as
arctic air from cntrl can with mdt residence advects back ovr
the rgn with cold conditions, with potentially colder hi temps
then what we show for Thu under ptly cldy to msly clr skies.

After msly clr and lgt winds Thu eve, clds will be back on the
increase for late Thu ngt and Fri morn ahead of a more sig sfc
low and associated S WV from the upper great lks, with this
system potentially resulting in greater warm advcn ovrrng
precip, msly in the form of sn across the N and cntrl areas with
sn chgng to a rn sn mix or even rn ovr downeast areas Fri eve
into Fri ngt as temps greatly moderate under the influence of s
winds ahead of the sfc low. Went with MAX likely pops msly
across th n.

Aviation 15z Saturday through Wednesday
Near term: mainlyVFR conditions can be expected across the
region through tonight outside of any brief ifr MVFR in light
snow early this morning.

Short to long term: mslyVFR conditions Sun and Sun ngt with
MVFR clgs and vsbys likely on Mon spcly downeast sites in very
lgt sn.VFR conditions Mon ngt will likely transition to MVFR
downeast sites in mixed precip and ifr NRN taf on Tue sites in
sn... Transitioning to MVFR clgs NRN taf sites with sct sn
shwrsVFR clgs downeast sites Tue ngt and wed.

Marine
Near term: winds seas will remain below small craft advisory
levels through early afternoon. Winds will begin to increase a
bit by late afternoon and early this evening in the wake of the
departing ocean low. There could be frequent gusts up to 25 kt
during that time frame, mainly across the outer waters, where a
small craft advisory has been issued for late this afternoon
and into this evening. Visibility will be reduced to 1 to 3 nm
at times this morning in light snow.

Short to long term: intially no hdlns anticipated, then winds
and wvs increase to SCA range later Tue into wed. Went with a
blend of 00z ww3 nwps WV guidance for fcst WV hts this fcst
update.

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.
