Synopsis
High pressure will cross the region today. A warm front then
lifts across the region Friday, with a cold front Friday night
into Saturday.

Near term through tonight
1240 pm update... Satellite imagery showing fair weather cumulus
popping up across the state, especially over the central
highlands and downeast. Have increased sky cover to party sunny
in these areas accordingly. Otherwise the forecast is on track
and no other changes were needed.

Previous discussion...

transient high pressure at the surface and aloft crosses the
area today into tonight. The air mass is very dry with dew
points dropping into the lower 40s in northern zones today. Did
adjust model guidance downward as drier air will be mixed to the
surface. The mixing layer will be quite deep today and generate
some gusty west-northwest winds. Gusts will reach 20 to 25 mph
at times. There will be some scattered to occasionally broken
cumulus fields at the top of the mixed layer... Mostly towards
the crown of maine and near the coast. The coast will be the
warmest area with the offshore flow. Highs will range from the
low to mid 70s north to upper 70s to near 80f for bangor and the
down east region. Winds will die down Thursday night, but
increasing high clouds and warm advection will limit radiational
cooling. Overnight lows will generally be in the lower to mid
50s.

Short term Friday through Saturday night
A warm front will lift across the region Friday with overrunning
rains developing. Afternoon thunderstorms are also possible. The
steadiest rains will occur across northern areas, where the
rain could be heavy at times during the afternoon. Lesser rain
totals will occur southward across the remainder of the
forecast area. A cold front will then begin to cross the region
later Friday night. Rain, with a chance of thunderstorms, will
occur across the region early Friday night with rain chances
then decreasing overnight. The steadiest rains early Friday
night will remain across northern areas, where the rain could be
heavy at times during the evening. The cold front crosses the
region Saturday with mostly partly cloudy skies along with a
chance of showers. Showers could linger Saturday evening.

Otherwise, partly cloudy skies are expected Saturday night.

Temperatures will be at near normal levels Friday. Near normal,
to slightly above normal, level temperatures are expected
Saturday.

Long term Sunday through Wednesday
Unsettled conditions are expected across the region Sunday
through Wednesday. A series of cold fronts trofs and upper
level disturbances will cross the region in advance of an
approaching upper level trof which should reach the region
Wednesday. The exact timing of these fronts trofs and
disturbances is still uncertain. However, expect the chance
of occasional showers will persist across the forecast area
Sunday through Wednesday along with partly mostly cloudy skies.

Temperatures will be at near normal levels Sunday through
Wednesday.

Aviation 18z Thursday through Tuesday
Near term:VFR with excellent visibility through tonight.

Temporary broken CIGS near 6k feet are possible by later this
morning into the afternoon. Gusty wnw winds are forecast. Gusts
may reach 20 to 25 mph today.

Short term:VFR MVFR conditions early Friday will lower to
ifr lifr levels Friday afternoon. Similar conditions will
persist early Friday night, with MVFR ifr conditions later
Friday night. Occasional MVFR conditions are possible across the
region Saturday into early Saturday night. Generally expectVFR
conditions later Saturday night into early Sunday, with
occasional MVFR conditions again possible later Sunday into
Monday.

Near term: no significant weather is forecast. Adjusted wind and
wave guidance downward in line with buoy obs.

Short term: winds seas are expected to be below small craft
advisory levels Friday. Small craft advisory conditions are
then possible Friday night into Saturday. Conditions should
fall back below small craft advisory levels Saturday night.

Visibilities will be reduced in fog along with a chance of rain
and showers Friday into Saturday.

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.
