Synopsis
High pressure will build across the region through Sunday, then
slowly move east Monday and Tuesday. Low pressure from the west
will begin to approach on Wednesday into Thursday.

Near term through Saturday
955 am update: no sig chgs made this update ovr the prior fcst
update.

Latest Sat imagery shows bkn sc CU cld cvr now entering the nw
quarter of me with sct sc CU clds elsewhere. Fcst hrly
temps dwpts were modified slightly into the aftn hrs based on
trends from midday sfc obs with little if any additional chgs to
fcst aftn hi temps.

Orgnl disc: cooler weather getting established today.

Clouds will fill back in, mainly across the N and W this
afternoon as the trof apchs. Warming in the llvls coupled W the
cold air aloft and the trof will be enough to trigger some
showers. Rainfall amounts will be light(<.05"). Decided to stay
close to the daycrew's assessment of 20-30% for showers across
the crown. NW winds 10-15 mph W gust potential to 30 mph given
the good shear noted in the soundings. Daytime temps will be
below normal for late august.

Winds will gradually die down during the evening. Clouds will be
around the region, especially across northern and western areas
as the upper trof slides through the region. Any showers will be
confined right near the NW border. Much cooler W mid to upper
40s across N and w, while central and downeast areas see lower
50s.

Short term Saturday night through Sunday night
Impressive surface and upper level ridging builds through the
period and will ensure dry conditions. Low level moisture and a
northeast flow will generate cloud cover on Saturday. These
clouds and cold air advection will limit highs to the upper 60s
to lower 70s. The warmest temps will be on the coast with an
offshore flow. Clearing will arrive from the north as the 1030mb
high settles over the area Saturday night. The air mass is cool
enough to consider some patchy frost for some of the colder
aroostook county valleys both Saturday and Sunday nights. Patchy
fog over lakes and river valleys can also be expected. Sunday
will feature little cloud cover under the sfc high and highs in
the lower 70s.

Long term Monday through Thursday
The rex block continues in place into Wednesday with slightly cooler
than normal temperatures. Any tropical systems are currently expected
to stay well south of the area. Afternoon sea breeze processes
will return along the coast Mon into wed. Lowered temps for
Monday and Tuesday nights with continued clear skies and light
winds. Clouds gradually increase Wednesday as the remnants of a
warm occluded front moves towards the area. This front will
likely produce little or no precipitation as it decays over the
area. A second weakening occlusion will move into the ridge
later Thursday. Maintained chance pops Wednesday night into
Thursday as uncertainty remains on the exact evolution and
timing of these fronts.

Aviation 14z Friday through Tuesday
Near term:VFR through tonight. The caveat will be this morning
across the hul and pqi terminals as some patchy fog will briefly lead
to MVFR vsbys.

Short term:
Saturday... Chance of morning MVFR cigs... Mostly north of
hul... OtherwiseVFR
Saturday night through Tuesday...VFR except patchy shallow fog
around sunrise

Marine
Near term: wnw winds around 10 kts through tonight W ocnl gusts
to 20 kts this afternoon. Seas will average 2-3 ft.

Short term: no significant issues are expected. Fog won't return
until later Thursday. Winds will increase with a few gusts to 20
kts Saturday night into Sunday. At this point, stronger east
winds on Monday and Tuesday are forecast to stay south of the
coastal waters. A tropical system well to the south may
generate high swell than currently forecast Tuesday into
Thursday.

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.
