Synopsis
High pressure will move over the region Tuesday and Wednesday.

Low pressure will intensify off the mid- atlantic coast
Wednesday night and quickly track north into the gulf of maine
Thursday morning. The low will continue northeast across the
maritimes Friday. High pressure will return Saturday.

Near term through tonight
710am update... Overcast skies confined to very southern reaches
of aroostook county and much of hancock washington county at
this time. This will continue to pull east through the morning,
with sunny skies today for the cwa. Updated temp obs and
forecast remains on track.

Prev discussion...

high pressure will build into the northeast today, bringing
sunny and dry conditions to northern and eastern maine. Some
overcast skies may linger after daybreak, but expect this to
move off to the east during the morning hours. This will allow
many places to warm nicely into mid to upper 50s with fall
sunshine.

The surface high will slide into the gulf of maine tonight,
bringing calm winds and clear skies to much of interior and
downeast maine. Many locations will fall into the 30s given
ample radiational cooling conditions.

Short term Wednesday through Thursday night
Will see hipres beginning to shift offshore Wed mrng as next system
appchs the northeast fm the great lks. System wl be taking on a
negative tilt drg the day on Wed and with sfc high upr lvl
ridge axis ovr most of the cwa, hv backed off on timing of rain
until closer to midnight. With good portion of the area
receiving Sun on wed, expect that temps wl climb to svr degrees
abv normal with NRN areas in the m u 50s and downeast zones
climbing to nr 60f in the aftn.

Clds begin to increase Wed night fm SW to ne. Vry potent system wl
begin to transfer it's energy to the coast Wed evng as sfc low dvlps
nr the ny bight by 00z thu. Sfc low deepens as it heads northeast
twd ma by 06z thu. All models are in fair agreement with
strengthening of lopres and mvmnt, tho gem is tracking system
more inland and wl disregard.

Between 00z and 12z thu, GFS deepens lo by 18mb, ec by 14mb and nam
by 21mb and ultimately place sfc low within 150m of each other,
somewhere in the vicinity of the western gulf of maine.

Vry strong jet dynamics wl likely deepen coastal low ovr the gulf of
maine drg the day on Thursday. LLJ of 50-60kts wl bring serly winds
into downeast by 12z Thu as coastal low deepens. Cannot rule out
wind gusts on the order of 30-45mph on Thu morning along the
immediate coast though questions continue to center around how much
mixing wl be achieved.

Locally hvy band of rain is expected Thu morning acrs SRN areas and
mvg north in the aftn. Only nuisance-type ponding of water on
roadways is expected as system wl lkly be progressive. Main concern
wl be culverts and drains clogged with leaves exacerbating the
flooding. Mainstem rivers not expected to see much rise as they are
fairly low at this time.

As system heads north and east into canada expect that rain wl go
over to light showers beginning late aftn with wrap-around moisture
contg thru the overnight hrs.

Long term Friday through Monday
|system wl be mvg into the maritimes on Friday with contd gusty nw
flow ovr the area. Mocldy skies drg the day wl keep temps in
the 40s acrs the north and in the lwr 50s for downeast. High
pressure both at the sfc and aloft wl quickly build in Sat mrng
leaving a dry and cool weekend on tap.

High pressure looks to build east into the canadian maritimes
early next week with the next chc for rain Mon tue.

Aviation 12z Tuesday through Saturday
Near term:VFR expected Tuesday through tues night. Potentially
some patchy fog in vicinity of northern terminals along river
valleys early tues morning, but will dissipate after sunrise.

Short term:
Wednesday:VFR with light south wind.

Wed night-thu: rain will move into southern terminals after
midnight Wed night and continuing at all terminals on thu.

Locally hvy rain is possible with ifr and or lifr expected.

Winds 5-10 from the ese Wed night increasing to 10-20kts on thu
out of the NE with occasional gusts.

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