Low pressure will move away through the maritimes today. Another
area of low pressure will approach from central canada tonight
and cross the region early Sunday.

Near term /through tonight/
We will finally get a chance to dry out today as the low pressure
system that brought rain to northern and downeast maine the past
few days continues to move east of the canadian maritimes. Expect
mostly cloudy skies across northern areas and partly sunny skies
across downeast today. Highs will range from the mid to upper 40s
north and low to mid 50s downeast.

Low pressure tracking across central canada will bring more
showers to the region tonight especially across northern areas.

Lows tonight will range from the mid to upper 30s north and low to
mid 40s downeast.

Short term /Sunday through Monday/
Low pressure dropping down from central canada will cross the area
on Sunday bringing showers, mainly across the north. The low will
pull east across the maritimes Sunday night as a blustery cool
northwesterly wind follows behind the low. Showers will become
lighter. Showers across the north may mix with wet snow late
Sunday night or early Monday morning as cooler air circulates in
behind the departing low. Skies will partially clear across the
north Monday afternoon and become mostly clear downeast as the low
pulls east and away.

Long term /Monday night through Friday/
A thin ridge of high pressure will move over the region Monday
night into early Tuesday bringing mostly clear skies. Clouds may
increase late Tuesday as a new area of low pressure tracking
through central canada pulls a warm front across the area. This
will be followed by a mild night Tuesday night ahead of an
approaching occluding front. Some showers will then be likely
late Tuesday night into Wednesday as the occluding front moves
through. The air will still be mild behind this front and some
breaks of sunshine will be possible Wednesday following the
frontal passage. Some much cooler air dropping south through
eastern canada will then begin to flow into the region Thursday
into Friday. Low pressure will be developing off the east coast.

Latest guidance is taking this low south of the area, but if it
does make it north it could be cold enough for snow early in the

Aviation /06z Saturday through Wednesday/
Near term: mainlyVFR today but there could be some lingering MVFR
cigs thru 12z.VFR this evening will give way to MVFR in showers
laet tonight.

Short term: MVFR conditions are likely Sunday into Sunday night,
possibly dropping to ifr across the north at times. Conditions
should improve toVFR Monday night and remainVFR on Tuesday.VFR
conditions Tuesday night may drop to MVFR late at night. MVFR
conditions are likely Wednesday.

Near term: wind/seas will remain below small craft advisory levels
through tonight.

Short term: an SCA will be needed Sunday through Monday, possibly
reaching a gale Monday morning. Winds will diminish Monday night
and be light Tuesday as ridging crosses the water.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. 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 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.
