SYNOPSIS. High pressure will build over the area this afternoon. Another cold front crosses the area late tonight and Wed morning. Canadian High pressure then builds across the region later Wednesday through Friday night then moves east on Saturday. Low pressure from the mid Atlantic states will track across the Gulf of Maine toward Nova Scotia Saturday night and Sunday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. Pretty quiet wx wise for our FA tdy and tngt, with cont'd gradual cooling. Llvl moisture will cont to be arnd for SC cld cvr for most of the day, although there will be breaks in the cld cvr spcly this aftn Cntrl and Downeast. Hi temps tdy will be 5 to 10 deg F cooler than ystdy aftn with a fairly brisk N breeze, but still considered abv avg for this tm of season.

We xpct clrg across the Rgn tngt, with winds subsiding spcly ovr vly lctns. Models then show a s/wv with an associated cold front/mdt arctic air mass movg SSE from far Nrn QB/Wrn Labrador late tngt erly Wed morn with little even in the way of cldnss. Winds may decouple enough prior to the arrival of the front for some radiational cooling and near seasonal avg low temps ovr Nrn/Cntrl vly lctns before winds and temps increase again erly Wed morn with the arrival of increasing N winds and llvl mixing associated with the cold front.

SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Upper level ridging in east central Canada will support surface high pressure over eastern Ontario. This high will build into the area Wednesday into Thursday bringing mostly clear and cold conditions. Temperatures Wednesday will be a few degrees below normal while Temperatures Thursday modify to a bit closer to normal. A very weak front Wednesday night may bring some patchy cloudiness to the north. Otherwise, both Wednesday and Thursday should be mostly clear. Thursday night will be mostly clear and tranquil as high pressure continues to build in from the west.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/. Surface high pressure will be across the area Friday as long wave upper level ridging crosses the region. This will bring another mostly sunny day with temperatures now rising a few degrees above normal, but remaining below freezing over most of the region. Our attention going into the weekend will focus on a storm system beginning to take shape along the southeast coast late Friday night into Saturday morning. This low will be supported by a southern branch trough with a central branch trough digging in from the Great Lakes and possibly phasing. The latest GFS shows low pressure will intensify and lift to a position off eastern Cape Cod by late Saturday possibly spreading snow into the Downeast region by the end of the day. Snow may then spread north Saturday night and possibly reach northern areas on Sunday depending on the storms track. The new GFS, phasing the central and southern branch jet streams, is now very strong with the low and curves it a bit closer to the coast. The ECMWF and GEM have been weaker, further east and less strong with the system which would mean lighter snows with most of the precipitation passing to the east. The critical issue seems to be how much of the "central branch" jet stream will phase in with the southern branch, with the operational GFS now most aggressive with the phasing. The ECMWF runs the southern branch wave east before the central branch wave can phase in with it, and as a result the system is weaker and out to sea. We may not get a good idea on the outcome until the energy backing the central branch jet stream pushes into continental North America Thursday night into Friday.

AVIATION /07Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. NEAR TERM: Today . SC cld cvr all TAF sites thru the day with mainly VFR and pockets of MVFR clgs spcly this morn. Lgt to mdt N winds.

Thursday night: VFR, Light NW wind.

Friday: VFR. Very light NW wind.

Friday night: VFR: Light and variable wind.

Saturday: VFR, possibly lowering to MVFR or IFR Downeast with snow, and MVFR north late. Increasing E wind.

MARINE. NEAR TERM: Winds and seas will remain just below SCA thresholds tdy and tngt with N winds bringing weak llvl cold advcn ovr our waters. Kept close to blended model wv guidance for fcst wv hts with predominate spectral wv group pds being 4 sec propagating Swrd with an offshore N wind and a background semi-swell of 9 sec from the open Atlc propagating NW toward shore.

SHORT TERM: Winds may approach SCA in a few gusts offshore Wednesday into Wednesday night. Winds should then be below SCA through Friday night, and may reach SCA in increasing east winds Saturday.

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.
