.potential for easterly storm force 50 knot wind gusts and seas building to 20+ feet late Monday into Tuesday... A strong low pressure system will be tracking up the eastern seaboard and into the new england coast early next week. This storm has the potential to result in a period of easterly storm force wind gusts of 50 knots later Monday into early Tuesday across our waters. In addition...long easterly fetch may result in seas building to 20+ feet across our eastern outer-waters. In addition periods of heavy rain will result in very poor visibility. This is a potential dangerous and life threatening storm for mariners. Please continue to Monitor the forecasts over the next day or two and be prepared return port this weekend.

Synopsis
High pressure over marine will retreat into the maritimes, but
provide cool weather across southern new england today. A warm
front will approach the region during this time and result in
periods of rain with areas of freezing rain across the high
terrain. Wet weather continues Tue and Tue night as low pressure
tracks over or near the region. Although Tue should be milder
than Monday. High pressure brings dry but chilly weather Wed and
thu. More unsettled weather is possible late Fri into sat.

Near term /through today/
Continuing to monitor progress of main area of precipitation
toward southern new england. Temperatures at elevations about
700 feet and higher were near freezing, so will continue the
freezing rain advisory this morning. Low dew point depressions,
so additional cooling is possible with the main area of
precipitation arrives. Temperatures still expected to rise above
freezing by 8 am, ending the threat of freezing rain.

A warm front will try to push north into southern new england
later today. A low pressure moving along this front will prevent
it from completely doing so. This will provide a focus for
periods of widespread rain.

Not much sunshine today, but temperatures should be near normal.

Short term /tonight through 6 pm Tuesday/
Tonight...

abundant clouds linger. Lots of low level moisture in the lowest
3,000 feet above the ground in the wake of a low pressure moving
offshore. As previously mentioned, cannot completely rule out
some patchy drizzle. Still not expecting temperatures to fall
much, even with a weak cold front moving through.

Tuesday...

not a lot of sunshine anticipated, despite southern new england
getting into the warm sector of a low pressure in southeast
canada. MAX temperatures should be above normal, in the upper
40s and 50s. Could be warmer if clouds and rainfall are delayed
until late in the day. Low risk of a isolated thunderstorm or
two toward the south coast due to elevated instability.

Long term /Tuesday night through Sunday/
Highlights...

* showers linger Tuesday night as cold front passes through
* cooler but dry weather for Wed and thurs
* unsettled weather returns Friday into Saturday
pattern overview...

00z model consensus continues to show an active weather pattern
for the period. Split flow aloft will continue through the
period with a few shortwaves moving through the flow. Partial
phasing of the two streams will occur across the great lakes and
northeast on Tuesday. This will result in the development of a
low pressure system east of the region late Tuesday into
Wednesday. High pressure and upper level ridge will follow
Thursday into early Friday. The next upper level low/trough
deamplifies as it moves into the mid/upper ridge axis across the
eastern u.S. A coastal low is forecast to develop and quickly
move east in the aforementioned region of this phasing. The
spread has decreased for this timeframe but the still question
in strengthen and location of this system will determine p-types
and QPF amounts.

Details...

Tuesday night... High confidence.

Weak shortwave will move over the region on Tuesday with surface
low pressure over northern new england. Along the cold front,
guidance develops a secondary low pressure system just south of
southern new england by Tuesday night. This wave of low pressure
will bring showery weather Tuesday evening into the overnight
hours. Cannot rule out some isolated thunder with this system as
tt increase above 50 and li's drop below 0. This is strongest
in the conservative ec.

Precip chance will quickly come to an end from west to east
during the overnight hours as CAA takes a hold of the region.

Wednesday into Friday... High confidence.

Trough overhead as upper level low deepens as it moves towards
the canadian maritimes. This puts the region in northwest flow
through the period resulting in dry but breezy conditions.

Clouds may be stubborn on Wed over the CAPE and islands given
northerly flow across the waters. In fact could have some ocean
effect rain/snow showers over the outer cape! Despite cold
advection, the environment should be well mixed, so max
temperatures will be close to normal.

Northwest flow continues on Thursday with an area of high
pressure building in new england. Anticipate increasing
sunshine and lighter winds. Dry and seasonable conditions should
persist through Friday with high pressure in control.

Friday night into the weekend... Low confidence.

Split flow remains over the region with the next southern stream
wave interacting with the northern stream. Still some model
spread in this system leading to a low confidence forecast. The
ec has become more progressive with this approaching coastal low
developing it over 1-95 while the GFS keeps the system
suppressed. The UKMET is more inbetween the two systems, but the
gefs and eps continue to show the system south of sne. Overall
a chilly rain with potential for wet snow/sleet at times on the
northern portion of the precip shield. All guidance suggest
system should be or moving offshore by Sunday, thus drying trend
possible second half of the weekend.

Aviation /07z Monday through Friday/
Forecaster confidence levels...

low - less than 30 percent.

Moderate - 30 to 60 percent.

High - greater than 60 percent.

Short term /through Tuesday/... High confidence.

Today... Fzra risk diminishes early. Otherwise, -ra/ra with
MVFR-lifr CIGS with light E winds initially turning SE and
increasing.

Tonight... Ra diminishing, however ifr-lifr CIGS remain. Could
see areas of -dz. Light winds.

Tuesday... MVFR conditions likely in areas of rain and fog, with
a trend lowering to ifr as frontal boundary and surface low
approach. Low risk for thunder toward the south coast.

Kbos taf... Not expecting any fzra impacts at the terminal with
e onshore flow. Lowering MVFR down to lifr this morning.

Kbdl taf... Not expecting any fzra impacts at the terminal, as
temperatures remain above freezing.

Outlook /Tuesday night through Friday/...

Tuesday night... High confidence. MVFR conditions within any passing
rain showers with improving CIGS toVFR by the morning hours. Low
risk for thunder across the south coast.

Wednesday into Thursday... High confidence. Gusty n/w winds
Wednesday withVFR conditions into Thursday.

Friday... Moderate confidence. VFR and dry to start but likely
lowering to MVFR or possibly ifr Fri night in rain/wintry precip.

Marine
Forecaster confidence levels...

low - less than 30 percent.

Moderate - 30 to 60 percent.

High - greater than 60 percent.

Short term /through Tuesday/... Moderate confidence.

Today... Warm front will lift across the waters, resulting in an
increasing east to southeast flow. Rough seas across the
eastern outer coastal waters are more likely than the southern
outer waters. Continued the small craft advisories for those
waters. A few gusts to 25 kt are also possible across CAPE cod
bay and nantucket sound. Have less confidence across those
waters, so did not expand an advisory there. That will need to
be monitored as the day progresses.

Tonight... A weak frontal boundary sweeps the waters, with light
west winds developing. This will allow seas to subside and small
craft advisories to conclude.

Tuesday... Light south winds with frontal boundary north of the
region. Vsby reduced at times in rain and fog.

Outlook /Tuesday night through Friday/...

Tuesday night... Moderate confidence. Winds becoming northeast late
tue night as front slips south and wave of low pres tracks along the
front south of new england. Vsby reduced at times in rain and fog.

Wednesday into Thursday... High confidence. Gusty north winds near
Wednesday into early Thu then diminishing as high pressure builds
into the area later thu.

Friday... High confidence. Quiet weather with high pressure over the
area early fri. However increasing east-southeast winds Fri night as
low pres approaches from the west. Also vsby lowering in rain and
fog Fri night.

Box watches/warnings/advisories
Ct... None.

Ma... Freezing rain advisory until 8 am edt this morning for
