SYNOPSIS Low pressure tracks south and east of the area today and tonight. High pressure will build into the region on Thursday.

Low pressure passes north of the area Friday with high pressure building in Saturday through Saturday night. Low pressure may approach the region later on Sunday.

NEAR TERM THROUGH TONIGHT 835am Update...

Main change with this update was to lower sky cover a bit through the day over the extreme north, where some clearing is showing up as drier air sneaks in from the NE.

Previous Discussion...

Low pressure east of the Southern New England coast will slowly move northeast today. The low will remain well to our east keeping most of the precipitation offshore. Some guidance is suggesting some moisture associated with the system may wrap as far west as portions of downeast Maine later this afternoon and into this evening in the form of some light rain changing to light snow this evening. The best chance for any precipitation will be along the coast and Washington County. Any precipitation that does make it into downeast areas will be light, generally less than a tenth of an inch. Otherwise today will be a cloudy day. The best chances of seeing any breaks in the clouds will be across far northern Maine, especially the St. John Valley. High temperatures today will be close to normal levels for this time of year. The low continues to track east of Nova Scotia tonight with any precipitation downeast ending with mainly cloudy skies expected across the region overnight. Lows tonight will fall into the low to mid 20s north and mid to upper 20s downeast.

SHORT TERM THURSDAY THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT CWA wl be in between second departing low to our east and appchg system fm the midwest. 00z models are in good agreement with sfc ridge axis dominating the area's wx for Thu. Skies wl be mostly sunny acrs Downeast in the aftn while stratus conts to flow in acrs the north on NW flow. Maxes wl top off about 5 degrees blo normal for Thu with highs right around freezing acrs the north and in the m u 30s ovr Downeast.

H5 ridge wl flatter on Thu night as next WV appchs fm the west. By 00z Fri sfc low wl be located nr the WRN Great Lakes and eventually riding to the north and east with overrunning pcpn occurring acrs the north and west around daybreak on Fri. Pcpn shud begin as snow around 09z before warm air moves in aloft. Expect a quick-hitting mixed precip event this time mainly during the day on Friday with a quick transition from snow to sleet to rain over all of the region, with the possible exception of the St. John Vly.

Dry slot wl move in during the evng ahead of boundary mvg thru. In wake of the bndry expect to see gusty NW winds mvg into the CWA after midnight on Friday night.

LONG TERM SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY Ridge axis wl mv in on Sat to start off the extndd portion of the fcst with dry wx expected thru Sat night. Temps wl rmn cold during the weekend especially acrs the north. The next potentially significant system is currently dropping along the California coast and wl mv thru the central U.S. thru the course of the week. Both operational GFS and EC develop sfc low near the Delmarva Sun mrng while global GEM is more progressive and further south with upr feature. Still quite a bit of discrepancy with regard to potential system as 00z GFS ensemble members are pretty much all over the place by 12z Sun as it 00z Euro members. Hv opted to boost pops into the chc category on Sun and Sun night tho much uncertainty conts with this system.

By the middle of the week upr lvl ridge builds along the east coast.

Temperatures will moderate toward normal values by the end of the period.

AVIATION 14Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY NEAR TERM: Widespread MVFR IFR ceilings expected at the terminals this morning from KHUL south. Could see some improvement toVFR at KFVE KCAR KPQI KHUL after 15z. Expect MVFR to persist at KBGR KBHB through tonight with LCL IFR ceilings possible at times. Chance -RA -SN vcnty KBHB aft 18Z. North Wind around 10 kt expected at the terminals through tonight.

SHORT TERM: Thu: MVFR in stratocu acrs the north withVFR over Downeast terminals. NNW 5-10kts Thu Night - Fri: MVFR possible IFR across the north in wintry mix with mainly rain Downeast terminals. Lgt vrb winds Thu night becoming S 5-10kts on Fri.

Fri night - Sat:VFR for Downeast. MVFR localized IFR possible across the north in -shsn becomingVFR Sat afternoon. NW winds 10-15kts with gusts approaching 30kts Sat.

Sat night:VFR over Downeast terminals with MVFR across the north in low clouds. NW winds becoming light.

Sun: IFR for southern terminals as potential system moves toward the Gulf of Maine. Low MVFR possible across the north. Light NW winds.

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.
