Synopsis
Dry and seasonable tonight. Continued seasonable, less wind on
Wednesday. Low pressure passes north of the region, with its
associated cold front bringing showers and isolated
thunderstorms late Thursday into Friday morning. Another brief
dry period late this week. Fast moving systems may bring
scattered showers Saturday night and late Monday, but the rest
of the holiday weekend will be dry.

Near term until 6 am Wednesday morning
10 pm update...

winds are decoupling from the bl, but gradient will keep winds
up along the coast and higher terrain. A secondary shortwave
will be rotating south and passing east of new eng which will
bring another pulse of wind, mainly to the eastern waters and
adjacent coastal locations. Decent radiational cooling will
allow temps to fall into the 40s by daybreak and possibly near
40 in the colder locations in the ct valley, except closer to 50
east coastal ma and CAPE islands.

Short term 6 am Wednesday morning through Wednesday night
Wednesday ...

seasonable, dry day. High pressure in control with light winds which
should allow for developing sea-breezes around midday. Mixing again
to h8 where temperatures are just a tad warmer in comparison to today.

Add in light winds, abundant sunshine, leaning warmest guidance with
temperatures likely to over-achieve. Widespread highs in the low 70s
may be a sure bet, cooler along the coast with onshore winds. Scattered
mid to high level clouds late towards evening.

Wednesday night ...

a chance of scattered light showers into the W ct river valley towards
Thursday morning. Mid-high level clouds thickening and lowering towards
morning with enhancing isentropic upslope along the w-periphery of
departing high pressure ridge, now shifted SE of new england. Still
a measure of lingering dry air and subsidence inferred from forecast
model soundings, prefer to just keep up to chance pops in far W ma
and ct as there is some confidence of upslope precipitation along
the lifting warm front from the oh river valley to reach the surface,
albeit light, just a trace to a hundredth of outcomes by daybreak
Thursday.

Long term Thursday through Tuesday
Big picture...

upper flow continues to feature a ridge over the eastern usa, upper
trough closed low over the western usa, and the "battle zone"
between the two over northwest mexico and the plains. Meanwhile the
northern stream flows from northern canada to the prairies and
then east to the maritimes.

Two shortwaves eject from the western trough, moving around the edge
of the eastern ridge and across new england. Model consensus would
bring them through on Thursday night and Saturday night. A shortwave
in the northern stream drops south to the great lakes, then
moves east across new england early next week.

With the building heights associated with the upper ridge, expect
temperatures during the forecast period to be near seasonable
Thursday-Friday and warmer over the weekend. Normal highs are
currently mid 60s to low 70s, normal lows around 50.

Good agreement on model mass and thermal fields through Saturday,
then some diverging early next week. Timing of shortwaves can be a
variable that adds uncertainty to a forecast. Overall, moderate
confidence in the forecast.

Concerns...

Thursday-Friday...

surface high pressure shifts offshore Thursday with developing south
flow. This should bring increased moisture to the column... Pw values
climb to near 1.25 inches during the morning. Question is... How much
lift will be generated with the high so close to us. We will show
diminishing morning showers, mainly in ct. Dry weather in the
afternoon with mixing to around 925 mb. This taps 925 mb temps of
13c-15c, which supports MAX temps in the mid 60s to low 70s.

As noted above, the first of three shortwaves is expected to move
through during Thursday night. This will drive a surface low and
cold front from the great lakes across new england. Weak cold
advection aloft but favorable jet dynamics as a 130-kt jet feeds
southeast from canada and places southern new england in the left
exit region. Stability parameters are favorable for thunder... Totals
at 48-50, mid-level lapse rates 6 to 6.5c km, LI around 0... But
doesn't look severe at this time.

The shortwave and surface systems move off to the east on Friday.

Could be leftover showers during the morning, but the trend will be
for drying and clearing, especially in the afternoon. With colder
temps aloft, expect a deeper mixed layer... Possibly to 850 mb. Temps
in the layer reach 7-8c and should support MAX sfc temps in the
lower 70s. Winds in the mixed layer will be nnw about 25 kt, so
expect gusts of 25-30 mph in the afternoon.

Saturday through Tuesday...

shortwaves cross new england Saturday night and Monday, times
approximate. Pw values are forecast around 1.5 inches Saturday night
and 1.25 inches Monday, both above seasonal norms and Saturday night
much above. Convective parameters are marginal but may support
thunder especially with the Saturday night system. Therefore we
expect showers with each passage, possibly some thunder. The
mixed layer shrinks and expands over this period, but temps in
the layer generally support sfc highs in the 70s. Dew points
will be in the upper 40s and 50s, trending lower through the 40s
Tuesday... So we expect min temps mainly in the 50s.
