Synopsis
A cold front will cross the area tonight. High pressure will build
to our north Sunday into Sunday night. Low pressure will approach
Monday into Monday night and cross the area on Tuesday. The low will
lift to our north Tuesday night into Wednesday.

Near term through Sunday
545 pm update: adjustments were made to xtnd a little more cld
cvr into E cntrl and interior downeast areas based on latest sat
imagery. Fcst hrly temps into late eve were raised a few deg
with several lctns actually getting their hi temps for the day
after dark due to good mixing of the low troposphere just ahead
of a cold front.

Speaking of the front, its just crossing the NRN st john vly
attm, with little in the way of sn shwrs accompanying this
feature attm. Will cont to mention isold sn shwrs for the rest
of the eve across the N hlf of the fa, but with llvl drying
xpctd late tngt, there is a chc that cldnss may even break to
ptly cldy across the n. Fcst hrly temps should fall faster late
tngt well behind the cold front, so for now, we held off raising
ovrngt lows posted a 7 am sun.

Orgnl disc: northern and eastern maine are in the warm sector
this afternoon ahead of an approaching cold front. Temperatures
have climbed above freezing all the way north to the saint john
valley with lower 40s in the greater bangor region. The cold
front will push into northwest maine early this evening, and
will move south and east to the coast late tonight. Moisture is
rather scant with the front, but there will likely be enough
moisture and lift for scattered snow showers this evening to the
north and west of the katahdin region. Colder air pours back
into the area tonight as 925h temps of around 0c this afternoon
tumble to around -15c in the north by 12z Sunday and to -5 to
-7c along the coast. By morning, lows will likely bottom out
from 5 to 10 above in the saint john valley to the mid 20s in
the greater bangor region. Sunday will be a much more seasonable
day in the wake of the front with highs ranging from the upper
teens in the far north to around the freezing mark in bangor
along with a decent amount of sunshine.

Short term Sunday night through Tuesday
High pressure to our north combined with low pressure approaching
from the southwest will be forming a frontal boundary across our
area Sunday night into Monday. A bit of snow may move into western
areas along this frontal boundary on Monday. The boundary will begin
to life north as a warm front Monday night with snow becoming
steadier from west to east. Snow will quickly change over to sleet
then rain downeast Tuesday morning with the changeover pushing north
during the course of the morning. Snow will continue into midday
across the far north, mixing with sleet and rain during the early
afternoon before the dry intrusion aloft quickly surges in tapering
precipitation off to a bit of light spotty drizzle or wet snow
showers around mid to late afternoon on Tuesday. The duration of
snow will likely give around an inch downeast with amounts
increasing to close to 8 inches across the far northwest. By Tuesday
afternoon the low will be lifting to our northwest as a weak
secondary low along a triple point lifts north across our
region.

Long term Tuesday night through Saturday
Low pressure will continue to our north Tuesday night into
Wednesday. Downeast will partially clear. Some moisture wrapping
around south of the low combined with an upper level shortwave
trough will produce snow showers over the north with another inch
possible across the far north Tuesday night. Snow showers over the
north and a partly to mostly clear sky downeast may continue through
Thursday as high pressure builds in and pushes colder arctic air
into the region. High pressure should then bring a return of
sunshine on Friday with continued cold conditions. The high will
slide to our south next weekend as a return flow brings in milder
air.

Aviation 00z Sunday through Thursday
Near term: local MVFR and short periods of ifr at the northern
terminals this evening in any scattered snow showers, especially
from kcar north to kfve. Otherwise,VFR conditions at kbgr and
kbhb through Sunday, withVFR at the northern terminals from
late this evening through Sunday. There is the outside chance of
a brief period or two of MVFR ceilings at kfve late this evening
and overnight. Llws expected through this evening at the
northern TAF sites with a 45 knot jet at 2k ft agl.

Short term: conditions will beVFR Sunday night, possibly
lowering to MVFR in lower clouds downeast late Sunday night.VFR
conditions across the north with MVFR conditions downeast are
expected on Monday. Conditions may drop to MVFR across the north
late Monday. Conditions should drop to ifr Monday night then
lifr in low clouds, rain and snow on Tuesday. Conditions might
improve to MVFR downeast late Tuesday but remain ifr across the
north. MVFR conditions over the north andVFR conditions
downeast are likely Tuesday night into Wednesday.

Marine
Near term: a small craft advisory remains in effect until 5 am
Sunday morning. The wind will gradually diminish Sunday as the
seas subside. It is possible the SCA might need to be extended
for a few hours, but likely not beyond mid morning Sunday. Given
that the current expiration time looks reasonable will not make
any changes attm.

Short term: winds should be below SCA Sunday night into Monday
morning, increasing to SCA Monday afternoon through Monday
night, then likely a gale on Tuesday as strong low pressure
lifts to our west. Seas will likely respond to the strong south
winds on Tuesday building up to 16 ft Tuesday afternoon.

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.
