Synopsis
High pressure crosses the area today with warm conditions
continuing through early next week. A cold front arrives on
Monday with showers expected as it moves through Monday night.

More seasonable temperatures return Tuesday amid light shower
activity. Weak high pressure builds in Wednesday ushering in a
drier period with a warm trend likely.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
1030 am update...

minor changes were made to the forecast this morning to
incorporate current trends in temperatures and dew points.

Readings are already in the lower to near mid 70s at 10 am and
will continue to climb, resulting in a hot day.

730am update...

updated the forecast to include early morning observations.

Temperatures bottomed out in the 40s in northern and western
valleys while most other areas were in the 50s. Now we begin the
warm up to the 70s 80s.

Original discussion...

high pressure crosses the area today with sunny and warm
conditions expected. Some cooler temperatures are expected in
eastern areas where cooler air from canada has recently slipped
down. However, western areas will warm well into the 80s as an
upper level ridge spreads in from the west. Winds will be very
light beneath surface high pressure, turning onshore at the
coast in a sea breeze this afternoon.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Sunday
High pressure shifts offshore tonight and Sunday with southwest
flow beginning. Fog will be possible in valley locations tonight
with temperatures dropping into the 50s in good radiational
cooling conditions. On Sunday the warm air in the ridge will
spread across the entire area. Onshore winds at the coast may
keep things slightly cooler especially along the midcoast.

However, most locations will reach 80 degrees on Sunday with
some reaching 85.

Long term Sunday night through Friday
Persistent ridging breaks down as a long wave trough crosses
during the beginning of the next work week, bringing about a
change in pace with showery and cooler conditions at least for a
time. Anomalously high heights return by the middle to end of
the week and the pattern becomes ridge-dominant once more,
albeit punctuated by northern stream shortwaves. This brings
about more anomalous warmth by the end of next week.

Sunday night, mid-level flow picks up amid falling heights aloft,
increasing warm moist advection into the region overnight into
Monday. Models have trended slightly warmer with 850 mb temperatures
progged to reach 14-16c to as high as 18c by Monday, which
mixes to surface temperatures in the mid- to upper-80's across
the lowlands. Cloud cover and rounds of showers would limit
temperatures to muggy upper 70s to mid-80s readings during the
afternoon. Temperatures around 90 in SE nh southern me cannot
be ruled out Monday with clearing. Although thunder is not
expected with instability progged to be quite weak, pwat values
of 1.6"+ leave moderate to heavy rainfall potential on the
table. Dry conditions as of late minimize flood threat. A cold
front crosses Monday night, decreasing available moisture and
pops overall.

A trailing wave at the base of the crossing trough rotates up
through the great lakes and new england regions Monday night through
Tuesday night, promoting generally unsettled, cloudy, and showery
conditions although with less moisture to work with. Weak high
pressure builds Wednesday providing a dry break. 850 mb temperatures
tumble behind the wave Tuesday and Wednesday as well with more
seasonable temperatures on tap, in the 60's to lower-70's for most.

By Thursday, a ridge axis extends up the eastern seaboard leading to
an end-of-week warm trend along the coastal plain, but a trough
crossing eastern canada keeps chance pops and cloud cover
nearby at least across the mountains and areas north during the
second half of Thursday.

Aviation 15z Saturday through Wednesday
Short term...VFR conditions expected with light winds under high
pressure today. Winds may become onshore at the coast this
afternoon in a sea breeze. Fog is expected in the valleys
tonight, primarily at hie and leb.VFR again Sunday with light
southwest winds.

Long term... Greatest chances for flight restrictions in the long
term period exist in shra Monday. With moderate to heavy
rainfall rates possible, visibility restrictions as bad as ifr
are likely should a terminal take a direct hit from a rain
shower. In addition a period of llws is possible early Monday
morning ahead of this activity. Brief MVFR restrictions are
possible through Tuesday night with shra. Mainly valley fog is
possible Wednesday morning as weak high pressure nudges in.

Lightning is not expected for the period.

Marine
Short term... Long period swells continue to roll into the gulf
of maine, primarily the western portions. It will take a bit
more time for these to diminish today. Primary threats for
mariners will be in shoaling areas.

Long term... SCA wind and wave conditions are possible Monday,
although little confidence exists in the warm-advective
regime. Otherwise conditions are expected to remain below sca
limits with southwest flow dominating Monday, gradually changing
to nwerly by Wednesday.

Gyx watches warnings advisories
Me... None.

Nh... None.

Marine... Small craft advisory for hazardous seas until noon edt today
for anz152-154.
