915 am edt Sat mar 17 2018

A cold air mass out of canada will remain across the region this
weekend. No significant weather systems are expected to affect
the area through early next week.

Near term through tonight
9:00 am update... Forecast remains on track this morning. Clouds
can be seen dropping down from the north as upper low slides
over and east of the area. Some light flurries will likely push
into the north beginning around midday. Lowered dew points a
bit. Otherwise, no significant changes this hour.

Previous discussion:
a deep and cold upper low over northern maine at 12z this
morning will pull east of nova scotia this evening. Another
upper low in quebec will move toward the region tonight. Arctic
air has spilled into the area early this morning, and
temperatures today will feel more like january with highs in the
teens north to the low 20s along the coast. A gusty northwest
wind will add to the chill. Weak disturbances may touch off some
light snow showers and flurries, mainly across the northern and
eastern zones. It will likely be mainly cloudy in the north and
p sunny downeast. Tonight will be cold with lows mainly in the
single digits with teens along the immediate coast. If the
clouds break and the wind can go light late at night a few
valleys could even drop a little below zero.

Short term Sunday through Monday
Surface upper level low pressure will remain near labrador
through Monday. Meanwhile, high pressure will begin to build
southeast from central canada. Expect generally partly cloudy
skies across the north and mainly clear skies across down east
Sunday through Monday. Temperatures are expected to be below
normal for this time of year through the period.

Long term Monday night through Friday
High pressure from central canada will build toward the region
through mid week. Meanwhile, low pressure will track east of the
mid atlantic coast Monday night through Tuesday, passing well
south of nova scotia. Another low is forecast to develop off
the southeast coast on Tuesday and then track northeast toward
eastern nova scotia by Thursday, at this time, it appears as if
this system will be too far east to have much of an impact on
our region. Temperatures through the period will be at near
normal levels.

with brief reductions to ifr possible in -sn -shsn. Conditions

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.
