A stationary front will remain across the gulf of maine this
evening. A pair of low pressure waves will move along the front
tonight into Tuesday. High pressure will build across the
region Tuesday night into Thursday. The high will gradually
move offshore Friday into Saturday.

Near term through Tuesday
630 pm update...

radar showing highest echoes moving across the downeast. Obs
showing some light rain as far N as rockland. Most of the rest
was clouds ATTM as drier air exists from below 700 mbs as shown
by the latest rap soundings. Llvls are expected to moisten up
this evening allowing for some light rain to reach the surface
as far N as the bangor region. The latest run of the rap was
doing quite well W the placement of the rain. Therefore, shifted
the highest rain chances to the immediate coast and pull back on
the chances further N as the drier air should hold through late
evening. Hrly temps.Dewpints were adjusted the fit the latest

Previous discussion...

high clouds streaming northeastward along the stalled frontal
boundary will continue to thicken this evening with rain
starting in the SW corner of the forecast area and spreading
eastward this evening. The deep southern stream moisture with
pws approaching 2 inches will be funneled along the frontal
boundary near the coast. Up to an inch of rain is possible along
the immediate coast tonight. There's still some uncertainty as
to the exact location between models and have taken a consensus
approach based on all available models and analysis. Meanwhile,
no precip is expected tonight towards northern aroostook county
and lows will dip into the upper 40s and lower 50s. Most of the
precip will fall tonight for the coast, but the chance of precip
and clouds will continue along the coast on Tuesday as the
second wave of low pressure moves along the offshore frontal
boundary. The 12z guidance from GFS and ECMWF indicated a subtle
digging of the upper trough to the west which pushes steadier
precip further inland on Tuesday. Will maintain chance pops for
bangor and much of the downeast region for now and let the night
crew take a look at 00z analysis and guidance. Highs will only
be in the upper 60s... At best... Tomorrow. The warmest temps on
Tuesday will be in the far NW portion of the forecast area where
some mid to upper 70s are possible. The upper trough may
generate some light, low-topped showers inland, but most of the
energy will be focused along the frontal boundary offshore.

Short term Tuesday night through Thursday
Fairly quiet weather Tuesday night through Thursday with surface
high pressure over the region. A weak upper level trough on
Wednesday will bring a slight chance of afternoon showers, then
another weak trough on Thursday could ignite a few afternoon
showers as well. Little or no chance of storms, though, as air
is too dry and capes too low. Generally partly cloudy skies
Tuesday night through Thursday with more clouds in the afternoon
hours than overnight or morning hours due to diurnal convection.

Temperatures near or a touch below average. Light winds through
the period.

Long term Thursday night through Monday
Thursday night through the weekend, an upper level high builds
over the region with a surface high over the gulf of maine. This
will lead to warmer southwest flow. Highs will be in the 80s and
it will be fairly muggy. The upper high over the region inches
just east of us late Sunday and Monday, allowing for a return of
mainly afternoon thunderstorm chances. Models are in fairly good
agreement and forecast confidence is higher than usual.

Aviation 22z Monday through Saturday
Near term: from hul mlt gnr northward,VFR conditions with light
winds are forecast. Bgr and bhb will have cig vis reductions to
ifr in rain tonight into Tuesday morning. These sites will
improve to MVFR after mid morning Tuesday. Bhb is most likely to
experience ifr conditions tonight.

Short term: Tue night through sat... MainlyVFR with light winds
except for afternoon sea breezes mainly Thursday through

Near term: light winds and seas under 2 feet are expected.

Patchy fog and rain are the primary concerns. The rain could be
heavy at times.

Short term: conditions remaining below small craft levels.

Marine fog possible toward Thursday night and Friday as onshore
flow develops.

If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at 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.
