High pressure will build across the region through Monday then
exit to the east Tuesday. Low pressure will cross the northern
and drag a cold front across the south Wednesday, bringing
showers. High pressure builds back in for the end of the week
and into next weekend.
Near term until 6 am Monday morning
Sfc high pressure centered over new brunswick continues to
extend S and W into me tonight, and a light NE flow will
persist, but should see decoupling in the sheltered areas, which
should produce some patchy fog. Lows will generally be around 50
in the n, and in the mid to upper 50s.
Short term 6 am Monday morning through Monday night
The ridge holds Monday into Monday night but does weaken a bit.
Still should be a nice day on Monday with mainly sunny skies and
highs generally in the mid to upper 70s, but cooler at the
shore. Monday should stay mainly fair as as well with lows
similar to Sunday night. Some signs that we could see some
coastal stratus and fog moving onshore Monday evening, but
should still have some light NE boundary flow which provides
enough fry air to prevent it.
Long term Tuesday through Sunday
Decent 500 mb trough will be track ene out of the great lakes
late Tuesday and Tuesday night, with sfc low tracking ene N of
the st. Lawrence valley Tue night into wed. Tue should be fine,
with maybe increasing clouds, but also some warmer air moving
air as flow shifts to the sw. Highs should generally be in mid
70s to low 80s. Best chance of rain looks to be Wednesday, but|
could see some showers moving in late Tue night. Also, the best
dynamics with system stay to the north, but should be energetic
enough to produce a decent line of showers, and maybe some
t-storms along the front as it moves through Wednesday.
High pressure will build I behind the front thu-fri with mainly
sunny skies and comfortable humidity. Highs Thursday will be in
the 70s, but look for temps to warm to around 80 in may places
on Friday. Saturday looks dry and warm as well.

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 L-36.com. 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 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.
