Synopsis
A weak disturbance will drop south of the region overnight with
a few showers possible along the massachusetts border. High
pressure builds in to start the week on Monday and remains in
place through the work week and the weekend. A warming trend
begins Thursday with above normal temperatures expected for
Friday and the weekend.

Near term until 6 am Monday morning
1020 pm... Showers over the ERN zones finally moving out. Once
these showers exit should be dry the rest of the night with
clearing outside the mtns after midnight.

720 pm... As advertised by the hrrr early this evening, line of
light shra developing over WRN me and moving e, these will be
light and may not measure in many spots, and should exit the cwa
by 01z. May a see a few showers in the mtns longer into this
evening as the weak 500 mb trough passes and exits.

5 pm... Updated the pops thru early this evening. This covers
the few light showers over the mtns ATTM and the potential for
a few light showers coming from the area currently over vt and
ern ny. Meso models do show some weakening, but hangs onto a
light band of showers thru about 00z, so have added some chc
pops further n, and slt chc pop southward thru the nh lakes
region and across aug and belfast.

Previously... Clear skies across the region will give way to
some mid level clouds this evening. Radar reflectivity shows a
shower complex over lake ontario this afternoon. Expect these
showers to decay as they move east but have increase pop along
the canadian border this evening for anything that is able to
reach the area.

Further south a weak low over ohio will move east with more
light precipitation passing mainly south of our region with just
a slight chance of rain along the massachusetts border. Even
with these two very weak features the pattern will be
predominately dry overnight and expect valley fog to form once
again in the ct river valley.

Short term 6 am Monday morning through Monday night
Monday will begin with the showers passing through the southern
portion of the area and mid level clouds remaining. As the day
goes on expect mostly sunny skies.

Temperatures will be near average on Monday with highs in the
low 70s south to low 60s north. While northwesterly flow will
prevail across most of the region it will be weak enough for a
seabreeze to develop along the immediate shoreline.

Monday night will again see valley fog form as the low level
moisture remains trapped beneath the high pressure.

Long term Tuesday through Sunday
Overview: surface high pressure continues to build in from the
west on Tuesday and remains over new england through the long
term period, keeping our region dry and quiet. Temperatures will
be near normal through Thursday but a warming trend will push
them well above normal for Friday and the weekend.

Impacts: no significant impacts anticipated.

Details: Tuesday begins with surface high pressure building in
from the west in the wake of a weak area of low pressure. Broad
surface high pressure then remains over new england through the
rest of the work week, allowing for some dry and comfortable
days as fall approaches. In fact, the best chance for
precipitation over the whole period is not until Sunday when the
latest deterministic guidance shows a frontal system
approaching from the west late in the day.

Temperatures will be near normal through Wednesday with generally
northwest flow aloft. However, an upper level ridge will begin
to push northward into new england on Thursday, starting a
warming trend that will continue into Friday and last through
Sunday. Highs on Wednesday will struggle to reach 70, but by
Friday, some locations in southern nh may reach 80 with
widespread mid to upper 70s expected for much of our region.

Similar high temperatures are expected through the weekend.

Patchy fog will be possible in the river and mountain valleys
early each morning as light winds and mostly clear skies will be
common with the surface high pressure over our region.

Aviation 03z Monday through Friday
Short term... VFR conditions today with just a slight chance for
a few showers along the northern border. After midnight expect
ifr fog to develop in the ct river valley keeping hie and leb
fogged in through just after sunrise. A few showers may move
through the mass border early tomorrow but elsewhereVFR with
clearing skies through the region.

Long term...VFR conditions are generally expected at all
terminals as broad high pressure resides over new england. Winds
will gradually shift from northwest to east to southwest from
Tuesday through Thursday. Hie and leb can expect periods of ifr
conditions due to fog in the early morning hours each day.

Marine
Short term... A few showers may pass over the southern waters
tomorrow. Very light northwesterly flow gives way to high
pressure on Monday with no hazardous conditions expected.

Long term... With high pressure generally dominating the region
and no significant weather systems anticipated, seas and winds
are expected to remain below SCA criteria through Friday
evening. Early Saturday morning may see the arrival of swell
from humberto and possible SCA conditions for the outer waters.

Gyx watches warnings advisories

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.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
