Synopsis for massachusetts and rhode island coastal waters.. A front will remain stalled south of new england through tonight. Weak waves of low pres will move along it, bringing scattered showers and patchy fog, especially across the southern waters. Gusty ne winds up to around 25 kt through tonight.

Synopsis
A stalled front to the south will lead to occasional drizzle and
showers especially across the south coast into Monday. Showers
and storms possible Tuesday night into Wednesday. Dry weather
occurs late week.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
720am update...

although NE flow continues the impact of subsidence behind the
stalled front has actually allowed for some breaks in the cloud
away from the SE coastline this morning. This is likely to be
case much of the day, with sct bkn clouds inland, to bkn ovc
conditions across SE ma and ri, closer to the trapped moisture
attendant to the stalled frontal boundary. Primary update this
morning will be to adjust highs up a bit. Even with onshore
flow, the sunshine and mixing should allow temps to be a bit
milder than much of the guidance, although with ssts still in
the low 70s across the gulf of maine, it will still keep temps
generally below mid august normals.

Previous discussion follows...

gusty NE winds continue to work down E coastal mass early this
morning with tight pressure gradient surge as the front stalled
e of the central nj coast and just N of 40n latitude as seen on
latest surface analysis. Noting wind gusts up to around 20 kt
across E mass into ri, with sustained winds up to 10-15 mph.

Bands of light showers continue to move onshore mainly S of the
mass pike as seen on latest kbox 88d radar imagery. Noting
brief visibility restrictions with the showers, along with
patchy drizzle and fog along the immediate E coast. Scattered
showers also continue across the southern waters and into the
southern islands.

Short range high res and global models continue to signal
patchy drizzle, showers and fog across E coastal areas into
portions of NE ct and ri through the day, with the best chance
along S coastal areas and the southern coastal waters.

Dewpoints slowly but steadily fall during the day, especially
across central and western areas, with readings in the upper 50s
to around 60 there. It will be a bit more humid where the ne
flow persists across E mass into ri. Temps will top off at
around 70 degrees along the E coastal, ranging to the mid and
upper 70s across the ct valley.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Monday
High pressure ridge from the maritimes across northern new
england will slowly nose southward tonight and Monday. Will see
leftover low level moisture across NE ct ri SE mass with light
scattered showers tonight, which will slip S overnight. Even so,
might still see spotty showers lingering across portions of
cape cod and the islands into Monday with a persistent NE wind
flow there.

With the onshore flow, temps will run close to or below seasonal
normals, especially on Monday as highs will only be in the 70s.

Dewpoints across eastern areas and especially along the coast
will remain relatively high, mainly in the lower-mid 60s tonight
and Monday.

Long term Monday night through Saturday
Highlights...

* more humid with showers storms Tuesday night and Wednesday
* dry Thursday into next weekend with lower humidity building
into the weekend.

Overview and model preferences...

a cutoff, stalled within weak flow S of the mean n-stream jet
continues to weaken Mon night into tue. Inverted ridging
results, linked to a maritimes high pres. The production of
onshore flow from within this inverted ridging will keep highs
below normal, but lows above thanks to marine influence. Wed,
deepening wave linked to a vortex near nunavut will draw
tropical moisture back toward new england. While the parent low
pres linked to the wave will shift into N new england, frontal
lift will allow for some convective shra tsra into Wed night.

Trof axis shifts E Thu and lifts, allowing bermuda high to once
again force warmer, humid air back toward new england with
rising heights into the weekend. This will bring about a return
of seasonably warm and humid conditions.

Temperatures...

onshore flow continues through tue, drawing air off the gulf of
maine where ssts rest in the low 70s near shore. This will
limit highs Tue wed, keeping them mainly below normal (mid to
upper 70s most likely). Overnight mins mild, as dwpts remain in
the low-mid 60s. Late week expected to be more comfortable as
dwpts drop into the 50s Fri before rising back into the 60s by
late weekend. Highs will once again rise late week, likely
exceeding seasonal normals through the weekend, (mid to upper
80s).

Precipitation...

aside from drizzle linked to onshore flow mainly dry conditions
linger into tue. Widespread shra tsra likely Wed as a weak warm
front, then cold front shift across the region. Noting pwats
near or even above 2.00 inches or nearly 2 std deviations above
normal. Combine this with LLJ near 30 kt and reasonably high
ensemble probs of CAPE +500j kg, and a risk for heavy rain is
possible. With anomalously high rainfall for early august for
many parts of S new england, will need to monitor for flood
potential Wed and Wed night. Into the weekend, mainly dry wx
expected as high pres near 1030hpa builds across new england.
