falling ovr SRN areas and far NW zones with cntrl and nern sxns

mesoanalysis. CWA is currently clouded ovr which has
significantlyreduced svr threat this aftn evng. Lightning fm
glm network confined to SRN new england to the south of the warm
fnt with only isold storms present acrs most of the state of
maine. Expect this trend wl continue thru 06z tonight and hv
dropped thunder mention to isold. With pw values > 2 inches
heavy rain wl be the main threat. All guidance, including hires
models, indicate area of hvy rain near the central region. This
lkly in correlation to h8 low that dvlps along the bndry and in
conjunction with the nose of the llj.

With influx of significant low-lvl moisture areas of fog and low
stratus expected to overspread entire CWA tonight. This wl lkly
keep temps in the m u 60s most locations with a vry small
diurnal range. Cold front will cross the area Thu aftn with
small chc for showers and tstms as moisture wl be lacking

Short term Thursday night through Saturday night
At the start of the period, a cold front will be extended
across coastal washington county on its way out of the area. An
occluded low will be over quebec bringing wrap around
precipitation into northern aroostook county. Higher pressure
will begin to build into the mid portions of the state. Friday
morning the cold front will push into the coastal waters. Higher
pressure will spread to the rest of the area. Friday afternoon
a trough associated with the occluded low over quebec will move
into northern aroostook county, bringing showers to the area.

The trough will clear the area early Saturday morning, higher
pressure will build back across the area. High pressure will
dominate through the end of the period.

Loaded a blend of the GFS nam ECMWF gem to smooth out the minor
differences in the models.

Long term Sunday through Wednesday
High pressure will dominate the weather through early Wednesday
morning. A cold front will move into western maine Wednesday
and will slowly move across the state through the end of the
period. A low pressure system moving north along the atlantic
seaboard will help slow the forward movement of the front. The
extended models are not in agreement on position and movement of
this low, though they all agree that there will be a low in the
atlantic Thursday and Friday.

Loaded a blend of models to smooth out the minor differences.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
