High pressure will build across the region tonight through the
weekend then move east Monday. A cold front will begin to cross
the area Tuesday.

Near term /through Saturday/
The ridge will provide light winds, clear skies and another good
night for radiational cooling. Lows will drop to the upper 40s to
near 50f for most of the area. A few colder readings in the low to
mid 40s are possible in the allagash and interior washington
county. The high remains in command Saturday, but will move
offshore. This will generate a warming southwest wind for most of
the area that will allow temperatures to rise into the lower 80s.

Some mid 80s readings are possible towards the st john valley. On
the other hand, the flow will be more onshore for mdi and the
outer islands with highs cooler than today. The only other item of
significance will be a shortwave upper trough moving north of the
state. There's very little moisture for any shower/thunderstorm
activity but some cape. There may be just enough moisture and lift
to generate a brief isolated thunderstorm towards moosehead lake
and also in the st john valley.

Short term /Saturday night through Monday/
High pressure will remain ridged across the region Saturday night
through Sunday night with generally mostly clear/partly cloudy
skies north with mostly clear skies downeast. High pressure will
then begin to move east of the region Monday while a slow moving
cold front tracks east across quebec province. Generally expect
mostly/partly sunny skies across the region Monday... Though could
have the slight chance of an afternoon shower or thunderstorm
across western portions of the forecast area. Temperatures will
remain at above normal levels Sunday/Monday.

Long term /Monday night through Friday/
A cold front will approach from the west Monday night as low
pressure moves southeastward across quebec province. This system
will produce a period of rain across the region Tuesday night into
Wednesday. High pressure is then expected to build in from the
southwest Wednesday night into Thursday. The high will then move
to the southeast of new england late Thursday into Thursday night.

Weak low pressure is then expected to approach from the west on

Aviation /20z Friday through Wednesday/
Near term:VFR conditions with no ceilings are expected through
the period with the possible exception of patchy shallow fog near
sunrise. There is also a slight risk of isolated afternoon
thunderstorms near gnr and fve.

Short term: generally expectVFR conditions across the region
Saturday night through Monday. Expect ifr/MVFR conditions Tuesday
and Wednesday.

Near term: no significant weather is expected. A long period south
swell will generate 3 to 4 foot seas.

Short term: winds/seas are expected to remain below small craft
advisory levels Saturday night through Monday.

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.
