SYNOPSIS
A weak cold front moves across the region today with a few showers possible. High pressure gradually builds in Tuesday and Wednesday. A cold front approaches late in the week bringing another chance for rain showers.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/
1125 AM...Quick update just to freshen up POPs mostly based on current conds. One round of forcing is moving out of the ME mtns bit cold front still progressing slowly S. With trough axis moving through this afternoon could see a few showers along it as it makes its way to the coast. Otherwise p/sunny and warm this afternoon.

630 AM Update...No changes to the going forecast as all elements remain on track.

Previously...

Upper level trough holds firm over Quebec southward into New England today through Tuesday. A short wave trough moving through the broader cyclonic flow will aid in pushing a weak cold front through our forecast area later this morning into this afternoon. Forcing for ascent and moisture availability is lacking so just a few showers are possible this afternoon. Went with a blend of MET and MAV guidance for highs today which are one or two degrees higher than the NBM. Otherwise, a couple-hour period of 25 knot gusts are possible across southern NH this afternoon.

Early morning valley fog may be locally dense.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 PM TUESDAY/
High pressure gradually moves into the region tonight with clearing skies and diminishing winds. Low temperatures derived from a blend of MOS products.

Another weak cold front moves through on Tuesday with variable clouds but no showers expected. Highs around 60 many areas.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/
Overview: Warm and mostly dry weather for the long term, but a few weak disturbances will bring the chance for showers late week and this weekend.

Details: The area will remain in a pattern to keep highs in the 50s to lower 60s likely into late week. Low pressure will track into the western Great Lakes Wednesday afternoon. This will bring some rain into southern New England, but dry air looks to hold on tight for Maine and much of New Hampshire. Guidance profiles suggest a low to mid level cloud layer easily advancing into the area Wed night, but don't think this is deep enough to suggest PoPs greater than slight chance until Thursday afternoon or evening. These showers become more likely overnight into Friday morning for much of the area.

The parent low departs towards James Bay, but the elongated front partially washes out over ME/NH. This could leave some convergence for another incoming front Friday evening. However, current ensembles are quite bearish with QPF as both episodes struggle to generate more than a quarter inch.

The latter part of the weekend sees broad high pressure across the central CONUS start to nose in. This could see the area running a couple degrees below normal considering the NW flow, but also remaining mostly dry.

AVIATION /16Z MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/
Short Term...Local IFR early this morning through about 11z, especially at NH terminals in fog. Otherwise, VFR today through Tuesday. Some westerly 25 kt gusts possible at KCON and KMHT this afternoon.

Long Term...VFR through Thursday afternoon. MVFR cigs may be possible Thursday night into Friday with -SHRA. Another period of restrictions will be possible Friday afternoon with additional RA.

MARINE
Short Term...Seas continue to stay in the 5-7 ft range outside the bays today. Conds stay below SCA tonight and Tuesday.

Long Term...Current forecast suggests long term will feature largely below SCA conditions. Slow moving and weakening front will cross the waters Thursday evening and overnight, with another stronger front following up Friday afternoon. Both of these will bring the chance of rain, but winds currently don't look overly impactful.

GYX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
ME...None.
NH...None.
MARINE...Small Craft Advisory until 8 PM EDT this evening for ANZ150- 152-154.
