Marine Weather and Tides
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

High pressure will slowly move southeast of the area overnight
into Saturday. Low pressure will approach from the great lakes
later Saturday then cross the region Saturday night into Sunday.
Near term through Saturday
1045 pm update...
the latest satl imagery showed high clouds lifting N into the
state W most of the cloudiness down across central and downeast
areas. Most of this cloudiness was thin. Temps have dropped
back into the 50s and 60s. As of 10 pm, kfve(frenchville) was
at 69f and one of the warmest sites due to the wsw wind of 12
mph. Clouds are forecast to continue to increase overnight as
the upper ridge begins to break down. Stayed close to the
daycrew's overnight mins as dewpoints stay up in the 40s.

Cirrus and thickening high clouds will steadily advance
northward across the area into Saturday after an upper level
ridge crests over the area. Thicker high clouds and an onshore
flow will contribute to cooler Saturday afternoon highs in the
southern half of the area while northern aroostook county
continues to see high temperatures moderate into the upper 70s
to lower 80s. Skies towards northern aroostook county won't
become overcast until later in the day.
Short term Saturday night through Monday
High pressure is expected to be over the region Saturday
evening. The high will move to the east into the atlantic during
the day Sunday creating a southerly flow on the back side of
the high with moderating temperatures. Low pressure is expected
to approach the region from the south on Sunday and spread rain
into the area Sunday afternoon. The rain is expect to continue
into the day Monday as low pressure moves through the gulf of
maine. Will add scattered thunder to some coastal areas Saturday
Long term Monday night through Friday |
Rain is expected to end Monday night as low pressure moves off
to the east into the atlantic. Strong high pressure will build
to the south of the region Tuesday then move off to the
southeast Wednesday. This system will bring dry conditions
Tuesday into Wednesday but clouds will increase Wednesday as low
pressure approaches from the west. Showers are expected Thursday
and Friday as low pressure moves across the northern portion of
the region and a cold front moves through.
Aviation 03z Saturday through Wednesday
Near term:VFR conditions with excellent vis and no CIGS are
forecast through tonight. CIGS will develop and lower Saturday,
but should remain above 5000 feet.
Short term: expectVFR conditions Sunday. Ifr MVFR conditions
are expected Monday.VFR conditions are expected Tuesday and
Near term: light winds, no fog and seas under 2 feet are
forecast through Saturday.
Short term: have initialized winds with a 50 50 blend of the nam
and GFS for wind speeds. For waves: with relatively light winds
expected Saturday night into late Sunday, the primary wave
system is expected to be longer period swell 1 to 2 feet 7-8
seconds with a secondary wind wave around 1 foot. A more
significant northeasterly wind wave (around 4 feet 5-6 seconds)
is expected to develop Sunday night into Monday as low pressure
passes to the east. This will be accompanied by a longer period
southeasterly swell (around 3 feet 8 seconds) to produce a
combined sea of around 5 feet. Will use nwps to initialize
waves. Will add thunder to coastal areas Saturday night. Total
water level: will keep the base tide anomaly around 0.20 feet
along the coast for the next several days. In bangor will expand
tidal range above astronomical tide by 0.50 feet for the next

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 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.
