Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Gray ME 630 PM EDT Wed Aug 5 2020

SYNOPSIS. A weak cold front drops to the south of our region tonight with high pressure moving in for Thursday. A wave of low pressure along this front may bring a few showers to southern New Hampshire on Friday. Temperatures and humidity will begin to creep up over the weekend, but it will remain mainly sunny and fair.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THURSDAY MORNING/. Update . Minor changes to reflect latest observational trends.

Previous discussion . Much more tranquil weather through tonight after a weak and mostly dry cold front crosses this evening with a few showers toward the north. A Downeast fog bank is seen on visible satellite and will try to creep west toward the MidCoast of Maine but the crossing cold front stops its advance late this evening. Otherwise, a mostly clear night combined with lowered dew points and some cold advection will allow for good sleeping weather tonight with lows dipping into the 50s for most . slightly warmer near 60 along the coast and as cool as the upper-40s in sheltered valleys across the north where a better chance of decoupling exists. Some patchy fog development is possible for those sheltered valleys as well, but mid-level clouds around may preclude that in some spots.

SHORT TERM /6 AM THURSDAY MORNING THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/. High pressure builds into the region tomorrow as a thermal trough dips into the area from Canada. The cooler airmass aloft caps temperatures tomorrow in the 70s to mid-80s with dew points comfortably in the low- to mid-50s. Paired with mostly sunny skies it ought to be a great weather day. A sea breeze develops in the otherwise weak PGF environment by mid-afternoon which keeps temperatures along the beaches in the 70s. High pressure sets up right on top of us by tomorrow night leading to a good radiational cooling night, especially north where skies are likely to stay clear. Thus lows up north dip into the upper-40s over most places in and north of the Whites/western Maine mountains . to near 60 at the New Hampshire Seacoast where clouds increase through the night.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. Quiet weather is foreseen through the weekend as the forecast area will be dominated by high pressure. Low pressure passing to the south of New England may allow for a few light showers across southern NH on Friday, but amounts are expected to be light if any. The next chance of showers and thunderstorms looks to be around Tuesday when a cold front moves into our increasingly warm and humid air mass.

AVIATION /00Z THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. Short Term /through Thursday night/ . VFR prevails with a gusty southwesterly wind today turning lighter and westerly tomorrow. Fog may impact LEB/HIE tonight, but with low confidence given some mid-level clouds around and a persistent breeze.

Long Term . Mainly VFR through Mon, with the only exception vly fog at KLEB/KHIE.

MARINE. Short Term . Seas continue to subside and are expected to fall below 5 ft over the outer waters this evening. High pressure builds into the waters starting tomorrow with quiet weather to continue.

Long Term . Winds/seas stay below SCA levels Friday through the weekend.

GYX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. ME . None. NH . None. MARINE . None.

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.
