High pressure over over northern new england will provide cool-
dry weather through Monday. And increasing southerly flow ahead
of an approaching cold front will bring some wet weather for mid
Near term through tonight
An almost carbon copy of last night with the valleys filling
with fog. An elongated upper low just off the southern new
england coastal waters is bringing some patchy mid clouds
The low is forecast to move east today, but will likely provide
for a mix of Sun and clouds for the first half of the day until
it moves east of CAPE cod later today.
Highs today in the 70s will be slightly below normal.
The recent string of cool dry nights will continue tonight with
valley fog once again developing late.
Short term Monday
We will start to see clouds creep in as we develop a southerly
flow with the high moving off the new england coast. We should
stay dry with highs very close to what we see today.
Long term Monday night through Saturday
As the southerly flow increases between the high to the east
and an approaching front to the west, so too will the chances
for rain. I brought in the first mention of some spotty light
rain Monday night, with more general scattered showers
developing on Tuesday.
Models are in decent accord in bringing a cold front into the
cwa for mid week. The system is made to degenerate as it moves
east and encounters unfavorable low level shear associated with a
sprawling offshore low. Showers will still be widespread, but
overall QPF should remain on the light-moderate side.
Dry weather will return for the end of the week. From there some
model timing differences arise with a cold front for the
weekend. The GFS canadian are in accord with this weak feature|
sparking some new showers, while the ECMWF holds showers off
until Sunday. Given the low confidence, I used blended pops for
the sat-sun timeframe.
Aviation 10z Sunday through Thursday
09z tafs sent.
More information below.
For the 06z TAF package.
Less clouds across the north tonight than last night, and winds
not as strong as last night, thus some fog at times at bfd. Bfd
still clear but reporting 3 4sm br as of 1110 am.
Otherwise, looking at clear skies overnight.
Earlier discussion below.
High pressure and associated dry air mass will build southeast
from the great lakes, ensuringVFR conditions and light winds
through Sunday over most of central pa. The only exception will
be in some of the river stream valleys of central pa, where
late night fog will form. Namnest and lamp guidance indicate fog
will develop around 07z and dissipate by 13z-14z Sunday. Kbfd,
kipt, kaoo and kunv are the only airfields that stand a slight
chance of vis reductions early Sunday morning.
Mon... Am low CIGS fog possible.
Tue... Am low CIGS possible allegheny plateau. Potential for some
Wed... Showers and am cig reductions possible.
Thu... No sig wx expected.

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.
