High pressure will build across the area through tonight. Low
pressure will cross north of the region later Sunday into
Sunday night. High pressure will then build back in through mid

Near term through tonight
Northwest flow can be expected today as high pressure builds
east from central canada. Mainly cloudy skies this morning will
give way to partly to mainly sunny skies this afternoon. High
temperatures will range from the mid to upper 30s north and mid
to upper 40s down east. High pressure will build to our north
tonight with mainly clear skies followed by increasing high
clouds late. This will result in some radiational cooling
potential across the north tonight as high clouds will not reach
there until toward daybreak Sunday. Thus have leaned a bit
colder for lows across the far north for tonight where lows will
generally range from 5 below to 5 above zero. Elsewhere, across
central and down east, lows will range from the low to mid teens
as thicker cloud cover will reach this area earlier in the
night, limiting much in the way of any radiational cooling

Short term Sunday through Monday night
After a fair and chilly start to the day, model guidance has
been consistent with the idea of another warm occlusion system
apchg the rgn from the W later Sun and crossing the area sun
ngt. The primary low tracks well N of our rgn while the triple
point low tracks sig S of the rgn. Deep layer moisture ahead of
the occluded front between these two lows will result in a
rapid increase in cldnss late Mon morn into aftn, with sn
breaking out by mid aftn. This deep moisture band, however, will
quickly move out of the rgn by late eve, limiting snfl
potential spcly ovr ERN ptns of the rgn where the band will have
weakened traversing from WRN ptns of the fa.

Persistent supercooled low cldnss in the immediate wake of the
occluded front will likely bring intermittent fzdz to the rgn
inland of the downeast coast later Sun ngt into erly Mon morn
with abv fzg temps resulting in drizzle alg the immediate coast.

Low clds and fzdz dz will dissipate later Mon morn with skies
becoming prtly to msly sunny Mon aftn, with sig abv fzg, mild
hi temps. Fair and mild conditions will cont Mon ngt.

Long term Tuesday through Friday
A developing blocking pattern is xpctd ovr NE can durg the long
term, with S wvs from upper midwest great lks S cntrl can movg
ese, msly S or affecting the SRN periphery of the fa. MAX pop
chcs have been kept in the slgt to low chc range for now durg
this tm frame with this update given the potential of at or
below normal precip, until we get better model confirmation of a
more coherent event worthy of higher pops as we get closer to
this pd. With little on the way of arctic air available, both hi
and low temps will be milder than seasonal norms during the long

Aviation 08z Saturday through Wednesday
Near term: MVFR ifr conditions as a result of ceilings will
eventually give way toVFR later this morning, withVFR then
continuing tonight. Northwest winds today will give way to light
north winds tonight.

Short to long term: initiallyVFR all TAF sites into erly aftn,
then lowering to ifr in sn Sun aftn and eve, with a rn sn mix
possible downeast sites. Cont'd ifr in sn Sun eve across NRN taf
sites, transitioning to lgt fzdz ovrngt Sun while downeast sites
xprnc sn, rn, and possible fzdz. All sites becomeVFR again mon
morn and cont so thru wed.

Near term: a small craft advisory is in effect for the outer
coastal waters though this afternoon. Winds seas should subside
below SCA levels tonight.

Short to long term: winds and seas will increase back to sca
conditions Sun aftn into Sun ngt ahead of and with the passage
of low pres S of the waters. Winds and seas will then gradually
subside below SCA thresholds on Mon and cont below SCA Tue and
wed. Kept close to a blend of ww3 and nwps WV guidance for these
ptns of the fcst.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at 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.
