Synopsis for massachusetts and rhode island coastal waters.. High pres builds S from quebec today into Thu. Expect ocean effect snow bands to develop under n/nw winds across the ern ma waters today into tonight. This high pres will shift E of the waters on Fri. A storm system will approach the waters from the sw Fri night and Sat, lifting slowly across the waters Sat night and Sun.

Synopsis
Mainly dry and cold weather prevails into Thursday, except for some
scattered light ocean effect snow showers flurries today across
the outer-cape. Milder temperatures arrive Friday and continue
into early next week. Light to moderate rain on tap for Friday
night into Saturday, while an uncertain forecast prevails
thereafter with an offshore storm potential Sunday into Monday
followed by dry weather for the remainder of the week.

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

plenty of sunshine today, but another chilly day with afternoon
high temperatures remaining in the 30s. Decent mixing in the
cold air advection pattern will result in northwest wind gusts
of 20 mph at times and a bit stronger across the CAPE nantucket.

The only exception to the mostly sunny skies will be across
portions of the cape. Nnw flow and delta t values from the top
of the mixed layer to the ocean are around 20c... Which is
adequate for light ocean effect snow showers flurries across the
outer-cape. However... Limiting factors will be that model
soundings indicate some dry air in the low levels and surface
temps will generally be above freezing. With that
said... Scattered light ocean effect snow showers flurries
remain possible today mainly east of hyannis. Do not expect much
of an impact though and it may be difficult to get much more
than a coating of snow.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Thursday
Strong high pressure moves from quebec across northern new england
tonight, then reaching a point south of nova scotia late Thursday.

Dry weather for most of southern new england tonight and Thursday.

With the high pressure not directly overhead, looking at abundant
mid level clouds arriving late tonight into Thursday as another
shortwave approaches from the west.

These clouds may not arrive in time to place an curbs on radiational
cooling tonight. Low temperatures in the teens and single digits
above zero will be common. Even near the coast, low temperatures
of 20-25 degrees are expected. The colder start and limited sunshine
Thursday will mean another day of well below normal high temperatures,
likely even lower than today.

Long term Thursday night through Tuesday
* highlights...

- seasonable and dry Thursday night into Friday
- light to moderate rain Friday night into Saturday
- hold a dry forecast Saturday night into Sunday
- uncertain forecast around Monday, dry through the week
* overview...

broadly speaking, evaluating temperature along potential vorticity
surfaces (2 pvu), seemingly subtle eastward propagation of a rossby
wave train. Favorable h5 trof development into the NE pacific (+epo
trends) resulting in SW advance W central canada +h85 temperature
anomalies from h2 h85 W perturbations from +enso EL nino source
regions coincident with a E propagating mjo from phase 3 to 4. Down-
sheared equatorward pv-streamers shifting into the conus, lee of the
rockies, storms manifesting further E along a sub-tropical pacific
jet. Captured, cut-off, propagating along a favorable storm-track as
colder air pv-streamers are continually downsheared E of the h5
ridging parent to aforementioned +h85 temperature anomalies over w
canada, the NE CONUS pattern has been quiet as of late beneath cold
northerlies.

But into mid-december, those cold northerlies becoming lax, there's
the opportunity for the favorable storm track to lift n, as is the
potential for secondary pv-streamers to wrap S and capture any such
storm development. Worth noting with respect to the weekend into
early next week forecast. Whether this pattern maintains is somewhat
uncertain per N pacific trends (wpo or epo) as well echoes occurring
up through the stratosphere with dominant N american ridging as the
sw heat-pump continues downstream across canada, the parent strato-
vortex shoved to the other side of the hemisphere. CPC 8 to 14 day
and 3 to 4 week outlooks concerning above-average temperatures seem
to coincide with such trends.

Details in the discussion below highlighting forecast thinking along
with forecast model preference.

* discussion...

Thursday night through Friday...

dry and seasonable. Deamplifying mid-level vortex exiting, consensus
model forecast guidance has heights rising with S winds in tow. The
influence of high pressure, winds light, partial clearing, there is
the potential for radiational cooling into Friday morning. However
some indication of a non-diurnal temperature trend with light winds
becoming s, increasing into Friday pushing highs into the 40s prior
to active weather into the weekend.

Friday night into Saturday night...

light to moderate rain. Likely pops especially towards the s-coast.

Cut-off low lee of the rockies along the sub-tropical pacific jet
loses its connection with the n-stream which races faster e. Broad
and diffuse connection through jet coupling echoed down to a surface
frontal boundary, mid to upper level isentropic upslope towards new
england, yet majority of surface to low level focus confined to a
secondary offshore mid-atlantic t-occlusion low with anomalous s
winds and precipitable waters. Isallobaric response, undercutting
drier northerlies as ridging pushes into E canada, leaning a storm
track shunted S drying us out into Saturday night. Preference to the
more run-to-run consistent ec. Brief period of freezing rain possible
along the high terrain with onset.

Sunday through Monday night...

low confidence forecast. Forecast model solutions struggling with a
secondary PV streamer wrapping into a now warm-core mid-upper level
low pushing E off the mid-atlantic. Timing crucial as to potential
interaction phasing, unclear is the proximity and morphology of
potential storm development to S new england. Noteworthy ensemble
member spread lending to uncertainty. Confident progressive flow
downstream lending to storm maturation further e, but will have to
watch for cyclonic, comma-head development reaching back over new
england. Again, preference towards ec model guidance. As noted by
the prior forecaster, within a mild regime, any wintry outcomes
would require a deeper storm center and cold manifestation with a
near-benchmark (40n 70w) track.

Tuesday onward...

arctic air bottled up well N per aforementioned trends within the
overview, a SW CONUS anti-cyclonic wave break emerging promoting
downstream NE CONUS h5 trof preference, with any storm development
possible by the end of the week, location dependent as well as to
whether it can manifest its own cold or colder air S determinant
towards any potential wintry weather outcomes.

Aviation 15z Wednesday through Sunday
Forecaster confidence levels...

low - less than 30 percent.

Moderate - 30 to 60 percent.

High - greater than 60 percent.

Short term through Thursday ... High confidence.

Vfr with nnw wind gust up to 20 knots... But a bit higher at
times across the CAPE nantucket. The exception toVFR conditions
will be the risk of marginal MVFR conditions at times in ocean
effect clouds and perhaps some scattered light snow
showers flurries across the outer-cape. Winds turning light
overnight, shifting E into Thursday.

Kbos terminal... High confidence in taf.

Kbdl terminal... High confidence in taf.

Forecaster confidence levels...

low - less than 30 percent.

Moderate - 30 to 60 percent.

High - greater than 60 percent.

Short term through Thursday ... High confidence.

Northerly flow increases across the waters this morning. Rough
seas expected to develop across the outer coastal waters as a
result. A small craft advisory has been issued for many of our
open waters. In addition to the winds, ocean-effect snow showers
may reduce visibility at times to less than 3 nm late into this
evening across the eastern coastal waters. Winds diminish
tonight, but seas will take longer to subside, especially across
the eastern outer coastal waters.

Outlook Thursday night through Sunday ...

Thursday: winds less than 25 kt. Seas locally approaching 5 ft.

Thursday night: winds less than 25 kt.

Friday: winds less than 25 kt. Chance of rain.

Friday night: winds less than 25 kt. Seas locally approaching
5 ft. Rain.

Saturday: low risk for small craft advisory winds with gusts up
to 25 kt. Areas of seas approaching 5 ft. Rain.

Saturday night: moderate risk for small craft advisory winds
with gusts up to 30 kt. Areas of rough seas. Chance of rain.

Sunday: low risk for small craft advisory winds with gusts up
