1005 am update... No significant changes were needed with this
update. Some scattered clouds are moving into the upper saint
john valley this morning in association with an approaching
trough and cold air advection, but otherwise expect plenty of
sunshine and breezy conditions to prevail today. The forecast is
in good shape, so just made some minor tweaks to temps, winds,
dewpoints, and sky cover to bring these parameters into line
with current conditions.
a cold front will exit across the maritimes this morning. High
pressure will then build toward the region later today through
tonight. Northwest winds will increase today with a tight
pressure gradient and deep mixing. Wind gusts of 30 to 35 mph

sunny skies are expected today. Clear skies are expected
tonight along with diminishing winds. High temperatures today

If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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.
