Low pressure over the gulf of st. Lawrence will rapidly
intensify as it moves away to the northeast today. High
pressure will build in from the west tonight and crest over the
area Thursday. Low pressure will approach from the southwest
Thursday night into Friday.
Near term through tonight
The combination of intensifying low pressure moving away to the
northeast and high pressure building in from the west will bring
strong gusty winds and advection of bitter cold air today. Some
flurries and snow showers will be scattered about mainly from
the cold air gathering a bit of moisture off the st lawrence
seaway. Most of the snow shower activity will be around the
katahdin region and across the northwest. A wind advisory is
being issued today for some gusts possibly reaching 40 to 45
mph. Temperatures today will range from the mid teens north to
the low to mid 20s downeast... Cold even for mid-winter
standards. Wind chills will be near zero over the north and 10
downeast. Winds will diminish tonight as high pressure builds
over bringing a clear and very cold night across the region.
Short term Thursday through Friday
Thursday will be tranquil and cold as 1035mb high pressure builds
over the state in the aftn. MAX temps expected to range fm 10-15
degrees blo normal for the day with h9 temps rising to -9 or -10c.
This wl lead to highs rmng in the 20s acrs most of the area with
arnd 30f along the coast. A closed upr lvl low located ovr the srn
plains tonight wl begin to eject into the ms vly by Thu morning. At
the same time a NRN stream WV wl mv into the upr midwest and deepen
throughout the day.
Snow wl begin to spread into the CWA fm the southwest as we go thru
the ovrngt hours on thur night. At this point trof wl begin to
take on a negative tilt as it lifts into the northeast. Sfc low
that dvlpd off of the southeast coast Thu mrng wl begin to head
up along the coast drg the day with a position in the vicinity
of the ny bight by 12z fri.
By Fri aftn at 18z, models begin to diverge on location of sfc low.
Gfs conts to rmn furthest out to sea but has trended more in twd the
gulf of maine. All guidance, including ec ensemble members, indicate
sfc low by this time approx 100 miles to the northeast of CAPE cod.
Still some questions center arnd ptype on the immediate coast with
potential for mixing with sleet or rain drg the aftn hrs twd
interior downeast. For the time being hv btwn 2-4 inches of|
snow sleet falling in coastal hancock and washington counties with
btwn 6-8 inches acrs cntrl sxns of the area. As is typically the
case with coastal storms, lesser amnts appear likely in the
north woods as this area may be on the far NRN fringe of qpf
depending on track of sfc low. At this time it appears the
heaviest pcpn wl occur Fri aftn.
Long term Friday night through Wednesday
Long wave trof in wake of departing low wl keep chcs for snow
showers for Fri night. May see addnl accums acrs the far north into
sat mrng. Unsettled pd expected thru the long term as wvs continue
to ripple thru at random intervals due to ERN u.S. Trof bcmg
established thru the end of the week. Blo normal temps expected but
med range guidance conts to differ on timing of shots of cold air.
Aviation 06z Wednesday through Sunday

across the north today with some snow showers, withVFR
conditions expected downeast. Strong gusty winds and deep mixing

lower as coastal storm approaches. Ifr at downeast terminals in
light sn will move north during the day on Friday. Snow
expected at all terminals with possibly exception of bhb where
mixed precipitation may mix in for a time during the afternoon.

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.
