Synopsis for massachusetts and rhode island coastal waters.. As a storm sweeps E from the mid-atlantic today, high pressure builds across the region immediately after persisting through midweek. By late week, we'll see another weak cold frontal system stall as it approaches the region, lingering into the weekend. Lifting, turning warmer, all prior to a more potent frontal system for early next week. For information on possible hazardous weather beyond the 24-36 hour forecast period, please visit www.weather.gov/boston and follow the current hazards link above the map on the left.

Synopsis
Building high pressure through Wednesday with seasonable, dry
weather. A weak cold front may bring a few showers Thursday
night, otherwise moderating temperatures Thursday into Friday.

Mild weather next weekend, but low pressure may bring a period
of rain sometime late Sunday into Monday with much cooler
weather possible by Monday.

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

chilly start. Cloud shield continues to erode s. Where winds are
onshore with higher dewpoint, rather than a drier N wind, seeing
some low clouds develop as the boundary layer cools, condenses,
mainly over SE new england with scattered to broken ceilings
around 2-3 kft agl. Will see N winds uptick W to E through this
morning making it feel colder with lows around the 20s for the
bus stop, roughly about 5 to 10 degrees. Cloud shield continuing
to erode s, expect plenty of sunshine at sunrise. Sunglasses
advised with morning solar glare.

Today ...

dry. Near-seasonable. Influential dome of high pressure beneath
a mid-level sweeping h5 trof axis and attendant vortmax. Overall
dry column as N winds persist in wake of aforementioned dynamics
and as mid-atlantic surface low pressure ejects out to sea, winds
that diminish with time allowing onshore sea-breezes along E ma
later in the day. Well-mixed to h8, dropped dewpoints considerably
into the single digits. Highs around the low to mid 40s. Mostly
clear conditions, abundant sunshine.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Wednesday
Tonight ...

chilly again. Dome of high pressure more influential, light winds
and mostly clear conditions, leaned with coldest forecast guidance
mainly consisting of MOS guidance that has undergone bias correction.

Looking at lows around 20 degrees for most of S new england.

Wednesday ...

beautiful day. Beneath high pressure, light winds becoming s, abundant
sunshine, slightly warmer aloft, looking at highs around the mid to
upper 40s with another day of very dry conditions, dewpoints back
down into the single digits with boundary-layer mixing. Keep the
lip balm on hand.

Long term Wednesday night through Monday
Highlights...

* dry weather prevails much of this time period
* warming trend from Thursday through Saturday
* low risk of showers Thu night Fri morning, then again
sometime Saturday night into Monday morning
Thursday through Saturday...

high pressure should move farther out to sea Thursday, which will
permit a cold front to approach southern new england towards
daybreak Friday. Above normal temperatures expected during this
time. Rainfall chances will be scattered at best and mainly confined
towards northwest massachusetts, at least until a low pressure moves
through the great lakes Saturday. It is possible a secondary low
pressure develops more towards our region Saturday night as this
system passes by. This would lead to a more widespread, but still
light, rainfall. Have only moderate confidence in the timing of
rainfall chances during this portion of the forecast.

Sunday into Monday...

expecting Sunday to be another transition day, not atypical of
spring. As a weak low pressure passes by, our warming trend is
snapped and we start trending toward lower temperatures. Still
thinking temperatures will be above normal, but noticeably colder
conditions by Monday when compared to the warmth of Saturday. High
pressure building in from the west should mean drier weather
developing from west to east on Monday.

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.
