Synopsis
Low pressure will over the eastern maritimes will continue to
move slowly to the northeast today as high pressure from the
upper great lakes begins to move east.

Near term through tonight
Updated 6:00 am: have adjusted winds, temperature, and dew point
based on latest observations. No other changes.

Intense low pressure over the maritimes will continue to move
slowly to the northeast today. This system in conjunction with
strong high pressure to the west will produce a strong pressure
gradient across the region today resulting strong gusty winds.

The wind combined with the fresh snow cover will result in
blowing and drifting snow, especially in the north and central
portions of the region. We will therefore issue a blowing snow
advisory today. Winds will diminish a little tonight as the
high pressure system moves closer but there will still be a few
areas of blowing snow.

Short term Wednesday through Thursday night
High pressure wl dominate the wx thru this period of the fcst. Ridge
axis crosses the CWA Wed evening with high pressure off of the
carolina coast. Sfc winds back to the SW Wed night allowing temps to
climb abv normal on Thu and setting the stage for next system
ejecting twd the area Thu night.

May see lgt pcpn beginning to enter into CWA Thu evng. With strong
warm advection aloft and mins blo freezing expect light freezing
rain well after midnight to mv in with a glaze of ice possible.

Long term Friday through Monday
H9 winds increase to 40-50kts Fri afternoon with entire bndry lyr
warming above freezing aft 18z. Stratiform rain wl effect entire cwa
into Sat aftn. The state wl be in the rfq of the jet Fri into sat.

Potential continues to exist for locally hvy rainfall this weekend.

36-hr QPF amnts range btwn 2-3 inches for downeast areas and 0.5-1.5
inches acrs the north.

Wl be monitoring this event closely thru the week as minor flooding
will be possible due to clogged culverts. Local studies here point
to the possibility for hydro issues over the weekend. Will address
the potential in the hwo and continue to highlight throughout the
week.

Aviation 12z Tuesday through Saturday
Near term: expect MVFR conditions today at kfve, kcar, kpqi, and
khul. Expect MVFR ifr conditions this morning andVFR conditions
this afternoon at kbgr and kbhb.

Short term:VFR Wed and thur. Restrictions lower late Thu night
ahead of next system. Light -fzra moves in Fri morning with rain
fri afternoon through Sat and ifr conditions continuing acrs nrn
terminals. Downeast terminals improve to MVFR Sat aftn.

Marine
Near term: will use the NAM to initialize winds. For waves:
currently the primary wave system is system is off-shore wind
wave. There is also a secondary long period southeasterly swell
system present. Combined seas will remain around 6 feet today
then slowly subside tonight as off-shore winds diminish. Will
keep the current timing of the gale warnings. Total water level:
current surge guidance indicates surge is going negative with
strong off-shore winds expected to develop. There however
appears to be a very strong positive anomaly across the
coastline based on the latest tidal observations so will
increase the base tide anomaly to +0.70 through the day today
then reduce it to +0.50 by Wednesday morning then to +0.30 by
late Thursday. Will then increase the base tide anomaly Friday
into Saturday as a strong southerly flow develops across the
gulf of maine.

Short term: winds subside below gale force by Wed mrng but rmn
aoa 25kts into Wed aftn with seas blo SCA levels. Winds pick up
again Fri morning with seas increasing in serly long-period swell.

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.
