Synopsis
High pressure will build toward the area through Tuesday then
crest over the region Tuesday night. The high will move east of
the region Wednesday as a trough of low pressure begins to
approach.

Near term through tonight
11:00 am update: increased pops a bit for snow showers along the
corridor of convergence downwind from the laurentians which
typically sets up from western aroostook southeast into east
central to southeastern aroostook, as also indicated by
satellite and radar. Also raised temps a few degrees through
midday and a couple degrees for highs with the air warming a bit
more quickly than earlier expected. This, too, could add to some
instability supporting the snow showers, in addition to the
support of a shortwave diving down from the north.

Surface high pressure will build in from the west today as an
upper level trough moves across the region. The trough will
bring clouds to the north today into this evening as central
and southern areas remain partly sunny. Another upper trough
will move across the north late tonight. High temperature today
will be in the 20s and 30s with lows tonight in the single
numbers and teens. May be some below zero temperatures in the
north depending on amount of clouds.

Short term Tuesday through Wednesday night
Upr lvl troffing wl be dominant thru most of the pd. This wl provide
cldy and cool conds acrs the north while downeast wl lkly see prtly
to moclr skies thru tue. Ridge axis crests ovr the area Tue night
into Wed mrng and with clrg skies and lgt winds hv gone well blo
guidance acrs favored vly locations acrs the north for mins wed
mrng.

High pressure builds offshore Wed mrng allowing winds to back arnd
to the south and return warmer air to the CWA for wed. Temps wl lkly
climb abv freezing for the entire area drg the aftn. Clds wl begin
to increase fm the west ahd of next system mvg twd the northeast fm
canada. May see lgt snow beginning to mv in fm the west wed
night.

Long term Thursday through Sunday
Expect pcpn associated with weak system to mv acrs the area on thur,
bringing snow showers to the north and rain over downeast drg the
day. Aft system exits the region to the east an upr lvl trof wl
dominate most of the rmndr of the pd with temps falling blo normal
for sat. Moderating temps expected for Sun with highs near to
slightly abv normal for this time of year.

Aviation 15z Monday through Friday
Near term:VFR conditions are expected today and tonight.

Short term:VFR expected through Wed night. Low stratus may
produce MVFR CIGS acrs northern terminals on Tuesday but overall
expectingVFR into the middle of the week. System moving in wed
night into Thu may produce MVFR ifr restrictions.

Marine
Near term:will use the NAM to initialize winds. The primary wave
system today and tonight will be off-shore wind wave, although
this will be subsiding tonight as winds diminish. There will
also be a secondary long period southerly swell around 1 foot 8
seconds. Total water level: currently the water level anomaly
along the coast is near zero and this coincides well with the
surge guidance. An increase in surge is expected Wednesday into
Wednesday night as a southerly flow develops. In bangor will
continue to adjust low tide levels in bangor significantly
higher due to the presence of ice. Minimum low tide level
continues to remain around +5.2 feet mllw although this may
change as ice has begun to move.

Short term: seas and winds above SCA levels will affect the
waters Wed night and Thu ahead of next system.

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.
