Synopsis
Low pressure will track west of our area today. The low will
continue north into eastern canada tonight as high pressure
returns. Another low will approach on Friday.

Near term through tonight
Update 6:20 am: have adjusted the wind, temperature, and dew
point based on latest observations. No other changes.

Low pressure will move across the western portion of the state
during the day today. The rain will continue this morning the
become lighter across the south by this afternoon. Heaviest rain
this afternoon will be mostly across the northwestern areas. The
low pressure system will move to the north of the region this
evening and as it does so the rain is expected to end in all
areas by later this evening. Have used a 50 50 blend of the nam
and GFS to initialize the pops and qpf. High pressure is
expected to build to the south of new england late tonight and
this may bring partial clearing to southern areas lat tonight.

Short term Friday through Saturday night
Cwa wl get a brief reprieve fm S wvs on Fri as SW flow aloft and vry
brief sfc ridge axis crests ovr the area in the aftn. Hwvr another
wv wl ride north fm the mid-atlantic states with showers mvg back
into the region late in the aftn as upglide increases. High clds wl
be spilling into the area shortly aft daybreak but with srly flow
drawing in warmer air expect that highs wl top out in the 60s acrs
the state with the exception of the coast as onshore flow keeps
temps in the 50s.

Showers expected Fri night and into Sat mrng. Rainfall totals
expected to be much lighter than what is occurring this mrng with
total rainfall amnts ranging fm 1 2 inch acrs downeast to around 1 3
inch ovr the north. Unfortunately this wl lkly exacerbate ongoing
flooding issues, thus wl keep flood watch going acrs the north as
significant snowmelt combined with addn'l rainfall wl only prime the
pump, so to speak.

Temps thru the end of the pd wl continue to run abv normal with mins
in the 40s Sat mrng and highs once again climbing twd 60f on
sat.

Long term Sunday through Wednesday
The long term begins with upr lvl low hanging back to the west bfr
drifting out of the area Mon night. This keeps the chc for scattered
showers, and relatively cool temps, in the fcst into the early half
of the week. As the low drifts into the atlantic Mon evng an upr lvl
ridge wl begin building into the east. This wl feature temps well
abv normal twd the end of the week. Temps aloft expected to be 1-2
sd abv normal under 570dm ridge. Main storm track wl be displaced to
our north thru at least the middle half of the week.

Aviation 12z Thursday through Monday
Near term: expect ifr conditions today and tonight in the
north. In kbgr and kbhb expect ifr MVFR conditions today andVFR
conditions late tonight.

Short term:VFR expected on Fri and Fri evening, diminishing to
MVFR late Fri night and possibly ifr in low cigs.VFR on sat
then diminishing again Sat night as off and on restrictions
continue into early next week.

Marine
Near term: have used a 50 50 blend of the NAM and GFS for
sustained winds. Currently sea surface temperature is around 40
f while air temperature is in mid 40s and this appears to be
preventing strongest winds from getting down to the surface. For
waves: currently a long fetch is developing across the gulf of
maine and extending well to the southeast into the atlantic. The
fetch will be broken up by the wind shift later today. Wind wave
heights will build to 10-12 feet 9-10 seconds today. The wind
wave will transition to a southeasterly swell tonight but is not
expected to subside until Friday due to the length of the fetch.

Total water level: will keep base tide anomaly at +0.30 today
then gradually increase to 0.80 feet Thursday. Will make local
adjustment for fresh water runoff at high tides in bangor.

Short term: seas will remain AOA 5ft in southerly swell ahead of
next system moving north from the mid-atlantic on fri. Seas
remain above SCA levels thru the weekend with wind gusts only a
factor Sat morning.

Hydrology
A flood watch has been issued for downeast into this afternoon
and across the north from this morning through Saturday. The
watch for downeast is mainly for responses of small streams and
rivers to the heavy rainfall which may approach 2 inches in
some areas. The watch across the north is for the larger rivers
response to combined snow melt and rainfall. The rivers are
projected to steadily rise into early this weekend and may
approach flood stage by Saturday.

Car watches warnings advisories
Me... Flood watch through Saturday afternoon for mez001>006-010-011-
031.

Flood watch until 4 pm edt this afternoon for mez015>017-029-

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.
