impulses is expected to cross the region this afternoon setting
the stage for more scattered showers and thunderstorms,
especially across northern and central areas. With low freezing

continued mention in the forecast for today. Highs today will
range from the mid to upper 60s across northern and central
areas and low 70s down east, except cooler along the immediate
Any lingering scattered showers and thunderstorms will quickly
wind down by early evening setting the stage for partial
clearing overnight. May need to add fog to the forecast
overnight but will look a bit closer at this with the afternoon

50s down east.
Overall no significant changes were made to forecast other than
some minor tweaks based on current conditions.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
