Synopsis
High pressure remains in control through Tuesday bringing dry
weather with moderating temperatures. Wet weather returns
Wednesday into Thursday as low pressure moves through our
region. Unsettled weather continues into the weekend, but not a
washout.

Near term until 6 am Monday morning
Just about as quiet as it gets around here weatherwise with high
pressure in control. Satellite imagery shows clear skies around
region with nearest (high) clouds in pa and southern nj.

Deep mixing to nearly 850 mb has prevented sea breezes from
developing so far this afternoon. However, model guidance
suggests winds aloft will weaken just enough to allow a weak sea
breeze to develop along E ma coast and a slightly stronger sw
sea breeze along south coast from mid to late afternoon.

Mixing has also brought drier air to surface, as dewpoints have
fallen into teens and lower 20s, resulting in relative humidity
values dropping to less than 20 percent. Dewpoints will
gradually recover through this evening as mixing subsides.

Otherwise, clear skies and light winds tonight with patchy
valley fog. Leaned closer to MOS for lows which tend to perform
well in these situations. Lows drop back into 30s to around 40
with some patchy frost inland.

Short term 6 am Monday morning through Monday night
High pressure becomes centered over sne Monday. Once again
plenty of sunshine with light winds, and coastal sea breezes
will get underway by their usual late morning time frame. This
will give way to S SW flow Monday night as the high shifts
offshore, with some increase in high clouds late.

Stayed close to MOS with highs in the 50s 60s Monday, perhaps
approaching 70 in ct valley, and lows falling back into 30s to
near 40 Monday night.

Long term Tuesday through Sunday
* highlights...

- wet and breezy midweek
- perhaps a reprieve Friday
- more showers possible Saturday
overview and model preferences...

22 12z guidance remains in decent overall agreement through
this portion of the forecast, although more detail differences
arise after Wednesday.

Generally expecting two mid level waves to phase over the ohio
valley central appalachians towards Wednesday. This amplify the
resulting trough, and steer a low pressure closer to southern
new england Wednesday into Thursday. Near normal temperatures
much of this period, except for Wednesday.

Continue to favor an ensemble approach for this portion of the
forecast, especially after Wednesday.

Details...

dry weather through Tuesday, with a large high pressure over the
maritimes. Some question as to how quickly this high pressure
will move offshore. Latest guidance has sped up the arrival of
rainfall into late Tuesday night. Some surface ridging noted
over southern new england Wednesday morning, so this might be
too fast. Preferred a slower arrival to rainfall than the
latest guidance for this reason.

Good setup for a soaking rain Wednesday into Wednesday night.

This looks to be our most likely period of wet weather during
the next 7 days. Southern new england should be in the dry slot
of this system Thursday, although there could be some lingering
showers north of the mass pike Thursday morning.

A brief dry period possible Thursday night into early Friday,
before another low pressure moves into the great lakes. This
system should be close enough where there would at least be a
chance for some showers. Not looking like a washout, though.

High pressure may start to arrive Sunday, leading to drier
weather.

Aviation 20z Sunday through Friday
Forecaster confidence levels...

low - less than 30 percent.

Moderate - 30 to 60 percent.

High - greater than 60 percent.

Short term through Monday night ... High confidence.

Sea breeze potential still questionable along E ma coast this
afternoon as winds aloft have been just strong enough to
maintain W NW flow. However, there should be some weakening in
winds later this afternoon to allow sea breeze to develop
between 20z-23z. Confidence is higher for south coastal sea
breeze which should get underway around 20z as well.

Vfr. Light W NW winds prevail tonight with local MVFR ifr
visibility in patchy valley fog. Higher confidence in sea
breezes along both coasts mon.

Kbos terminal... Moderate confidence in taf. E sea breeze
expected 20z-23z but if it does not occur, winds will veer to n.

Kbdl terminal... High confidence in taf.

Outlook Tuesday through Friday ... High confidence.

Tuesday:VFR.

Tuesday night: mainlyVFR, with local ifr possible. Chance ra.

Wednesday: MVFR ifr conditions possible. Breezy. Ra.

Wednesday night: mainlyVFR, with local ifr possible. Breezy.

Chance shra, chance ra.

Thursday:VFR. Breezy. Slight chance shra.

Thursday night:VFR. Breezy.

Friday:VFR. Breezy. Chance shra.

Marine
Forecaster confidence levels...

low - less than 30 percent.

Moderate - 30 to 60 percent.

High - greater than 60 percent.

Short term through Monday night ... High confidence.

High pressure builds over waters with light winds, flat seas,
and good visibility.

Only concern for recreational boaters is for sea breezes along
south coast this afternoon with 15-20kt gusts and choppy seas
near shore, especially when opposing outgoing tide. Similar
conditions Monday.

Outlook Tuesday through Friday ... High confidence.

Tuesday: winds less than 25 kt.

Tuesday night: winds less than 25 kt. Seas locally approaching
5 ft. Chance of rain.

Wednesday: low risk for small craft advisory winds with gusts
up to 25 kt. Areas of rough seas. Rain.

Wednesday night: winds less than 25 kt. Rough seas up to 12 ft.

Chance of rain, slight chance of rain showers.

Thursday: winds less than 25 kt. Rough seas up to 9 ft.

Thursday night: winds less than 25 kt. Areas of rough seas.

Friday: winds less than 25 kt. Seas up to 5 ft. Chance of rain
showers.
