627 am edt Sun sep 23 2018
A cold front will cross the region today. Cool canadian high
pressure will build in behind the front tonight and Monday then
move east Tuesday. Low pressure from the great lakes will
approach on Wednesday.
Near term through tonight
625 am update... Have cancelled the frost advisory at this
point as temperatures will begin rising shortly after daybreak.
Mid level clouds associated with the approaching cold front are
already moving into far northern areas at this hour. Only minor
tweaks to temps dew points at this time.
a cold front approaching from southern quebec province will
cross northern areas through mid morning and move off the
downeast coast early tonight. This front marks the leading edge
of a cooler air mass. H850 temperatures will fall to around -5c
by daybreak Monday across the far north and to around 0c at the
downeast coast. At the same time, h925 temperatures fall to
around -2c across the north and around +2c at the coast.
Moisture is limited with the front but there is the chance of a
shower, mainly across the far north later this morning and
continuing into early afternoon. QPF amounts will only be a
couple hundreths on an inch at best. Highs today will range
from the low to mid 50s north and low to mid 60s downeast.
Skies will become mainly clear across the north this evening and
then late tonight across downeast, as a large canadian high
pressure system builds toward the region from quebec. Expect a
widespread hard freeze across the north as lows will fall into
the low to mid 20s. With the frost freeze program having ended
there, no headlines will be included for tonight, but we will
mention widespread frost in forecast products. Across interior
downeast areas, expect areas of frost late tonight, with lows
expected to fall into the low to mid 30s. Along the coast, lows
will range from the mid to upper 30s, with patchy frost
expected. The one mitigating factor for frost downeast tonight
may be that the high will still be centered well to our
northwest by early Monday morning. This may keep enough of a
gradient across that region for winds to completely decouple.
With current frost advisory headlines up through early this
morning, will not issue any frost freeze products for tonight
quite yet, and re-evaluate the need with subsequent forecast
updates later today.
Short term Monday through Tuesday night
Can hi pres will linger ovr the fa Mon thru Mon ngt providing
fair wx alg with one more cool day and ngt and more frost
potential by late Mon ngt. Low temps by erly Tue morn, however,
do not look quite as as low as Mon morn due to warmer temps at
the subsidence invsn lvl and the possibility of sct-bkn hi
Otherwise, Tue will begin fair, with increasing cldnss by aftn
with hi temps recovering to near 60 deg f. Warm advcn shwrs rn|
will then advc into the fa from the wsw late in the day Tue and
tue ngt with much breezy srly winds and milder ovrngt lows.
Long term Wednesday through Saturday
Intermittent shwrs rn will cont Wed into Wed eve as the main low
from the great lks tracks NE across the st lawrence vly of qb
prov, bringing a cold front across the fa late Wed ngt and erly
thu morn. With pws reaching or just exceeding 1.50 inches, we
cannot rule out lcly hvy rnfl and even isold tstms prior to the
cold front Wed aftn eve, but these elements are a little early
to assign to the fcst attm. Total rnfl from this event will
generally range from 0.50 to 1.00 inch with locally hvy rnfl.
Max pops with this event are currently being shown to be arnd 90
Fair and drier conditions follow for Thu and Thu ngt with near
seasonable temps. Cldnss increases again for Fri as another cold
front and associated S WV alf apchs from the midwest. The next
chc of shwrs with this system will be late Fri into Sat morn,
with longer range models showing scenarios ranging from a quick
band of shwrs crossing the rgn alg a cold front, to more
organized rnfl associated with a WV of low pres forming alg the
front. Given uncertainties, we capped MAX pops t the hi chc
category for now.
Aviation 12z Sunday through Thursday
Near term:VFR through tonight.
Short to long term:VFR conditions are xpctd Mon thru Tue across

Near term: winds seas will remain below SCA levels today and
then increase to SCA levels in the wake of a cold front.
Therefore, an SCA has been issued beginning late tonight and
continuing into early Monday morning.
Short to long term: marginal SCA winds and seas may linger into
the mid morn mon, then subside below SCA thresholds late mon

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.
