Synopsis
High pressure will move east of the area tonight. Low pressure
will approach from the southwest later tonight and track across
the gulf of maine on Wednesday.

Near term through Wednesday
6:26 pm update: light snow has spread about as far east as
berlin, nh. The snow will slowly spread to the north and east
tonight, but will be fighting some drier mid level air, so it
will take a while before the snow reaches bangor (likely not
until around midnight). Made some tweaks to the grids this
evening based on the latest observations, radar & satellite, and
near term models.

Previous discussion...

weakening high pressure is currently over the region. This
system will continue to weaken and move to the east into the
atlantic. Low pressure will develop over the atlantic south of
new england this evening and move to the north. The low will
continue to move to the north during the day Wednesday. This
will bring snow to the region during the day Wednesday into
Wednesday evening. Snow is expected to continue into Wednesday
night as the low moves northeast into the maritimes. Have 1200z
gfs not available due to equipment problems so combined 0600z
gfs with 12z NAM and 00z ECMWF for pops and qpf. For snow
amounts used snow ratio.

Short term Wednesday night through Friday
Sfc low wl be south of the coast by the start of the short term with
lingering snow acrs most of the area for early part of Wed night.

Expect an addn'l inch or 2 of snow thru 06z thur to the east of
bangor. Winds wl not be an issue in the wake of departing low.

Potential exists for gradually clearing skies early thur morning and
with fresh snow cover hv contd the trend of undercutting guidance.

Trof wl swing thru by 12z with snow showers expected acrs far NW in
upslope areas.

S WV mvs thru Fri morning acrs SRN zones but wl lkly only see an
increase in clds as it mvs thru. Zonal flow expected thru the end of
the pd with slightly abv normal temps thru the end of the week.

Long term Friday night through Tuesday
Low pressure system wl skirt thru quebec Fri night into Sat mrng
with best chc for pcpn acrs NRN areas. Moderating temperatures can
be expected thru the weekend under zonal flow aloft. Next
substantial chc for pcpn wl be Mon night and Tue as sfc low tracks
fm the midwest into SRN canada. All guidance indicates low tracking
to our west and drawing in well abv normal temps.

Aviation 00z Wednesday through Sunday
Near term: expectVFR conditions through this evening.

Conditions will lower to MVFR after midnight at kbgr and
kbhb as snow moves into the area, with conditions to deteriorate
to ifr and lifr by Wednesday morning in snow. At the northern
terminals, conditions will lower to MVFR Wednesday morning and
eventually to ifr and lifr in lighter snow Wednesday afternoon.

Short term: ifr lifr expected Wed evening thru thur morning in
widespread snow. Chances lessen to the north of hul.VFR then
expected thru the end of the week and into the weekend. Fve, car
and pqi may see MVFR CIGS and vsbys in -shsn during this time.

Marine
Near term: have used the NAM for sustained wind speed. For
waves: primary wave system is expected to be long period
southeasterly swell (2-3feet 9-10 seconds). Wind wave will vary
as low center moves across the coastal waters with a
southeasterly wind wave ahead of the low Wednesday. Will use the
nwps to initialize the waves. Will issue a SCA for outer waters starting
at 1100z as southeasterly wind wave combines with southeasterly
incoming swell to raise combined seas to over 5 feet.

Short term: SCA for the outer waters thru the end of the week
with seas AOA 5 feet. Winds may gust to 25kts thru this time in
weak cold advection.

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.
