Synopsis
West wind aloft from the great lakes to new england will bring
dry and chilly weather this weekend. Expect unsettled conditions
Sunday night through Monday as weak low pressure moves across,
bringing periods of light rain and or snow. More cold air will
move in by mid week into thanksgiving, though it should remain
dry. Temperatures may begin to moderate toward the end of the
week.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Upper low pressure north of hudsons bay and upper ridge over the
pacific coast. This brings a west to east upper flow from the
great lakes to new england. Cross sections show a moist layer
between 850 mb and 925 mb but without lift. This suggests a dry
day with a mix of clouds sun. The mixed layer should reach to
about 900 mb, with temps at the top of that layer supporting
surface MAX temps in the 40s. Winds in the mixed layer reach 20
kt and possibly 25 kt in places, supporting west wind gusts of
20 to 25 mph.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Sunday
Overview...

west to east flow continues through Sunday evening. A weak
shortwave moves through the great lakes Sunday afternoon and
turns toward new england.

Tonight...

surface high pressure builds east, maintaining dry weather over
new england with diminishing wind. Expect clearing in at least
eastern mass and ri, possibly a few high clouds over NRN ct and
western mass. There should still be some snow cover
refrigerating the air, especially in areas that had the most
snow Thursday night. Dew points dip into the 20s, and with
favorable conditions for cooling expect the min sfc temps to
reach the 20s with lower 30s along the coast.

Sunday...

high pressure is overhead most of Sunday before shifting off to
the east. The great lakes shortwave may generate a weak low
pressure over the ohio valley that moves our way late in the
day. Expect a dry day through sunset with partly sunny skies to
start, then increasing mid and high clouds through the day. The
mixed layer will be more shallow, but with colder temps. So
expect MAX sfc temps in the 30s and lower 40s.

The main uncertainty is whether any light rain or snow can reach
us before 7 pm. Best chance would be in the western hills and ct
valley, but even there the chances are limited. We brought a 25
pct chance in right at the end of the forecast period.

Long term Sunday night through Friday
Highlights...

* weak low pressure brings periods of rain and or snow late
sun into mon
* high pressure brings dry but cold conditions for Wed and
thanksgiving day
* models signaling a potential warm up late this week
overview...

broad h5 trough Sunday night digs across the great lakes early
next week with mid level steering flow aloft. This will bring a
weak surface front low pressure out of the mid appalachians S ny
Sunday night, bringing a band of light rain and or snow through
Monday. As this boundary slowly slips S Monday night into
Tuesday with the mid level trough, leftover rain snow showers
will linger as colder air works in.

The majority of the 00z model suite in pretty good agreement
around the middle of the week, with the mid level trough pushing
e Tuesday night. Some model spread with another front possibly
approaching late Wed wed night. Most of the moisture should
remain N of the region in the W steering flow. More cold air
lingers into thanksgiving, but could see some moderation toward
the end of the work week as models signaling a rise in the mid
level heights.

Details...

Sunday night and Tuesday...

as the broad h5 trough across the northern plains western great
lakes begins to dig across the lakes into the ohio valley early
this week, noting a weak deformation zone in the general w-sw
steering flow. This will bring a light band of precipitation
across the region and, with borderline temps in place especially
during the nighttime hours, could see periods of light rain
and or snow mainly late Monday Monday night. The boundary should
slow push E during tue, though light precip will linger with
scattered rain snow showers. Expect another bout with temps well
below normal during Tuesday, as highs will struggle to freezing
across the higher inland terrain, ranging to the lower-mid 40s
along the immediate coast.

Looks like the best chance for steady precip will occur Sunday
night-Monday. Not a whole of of precip with the system, though,
with QPF values from 0.1 to 0.3 inches, highest central and n
mass.

Tuesday through Friday...

the digging h5 trough will sweep across the region around mid
to late day on Tuesday. Some precip will linger across central
and eastern areas through midday, then should push offshore.

Can't rule out spotty showers across the E slopes of the
berkshires through the day. The cold pool across central and
eastern canada by mid week will hold the coldest air in that
region, but noting h85 temps slowly but steadily falling through
this timeframe.

Will see dry but cold conditions on Wednesday as high pressure
builds S of the region, keeping a cool w-nw flow in place. With
the fast flow aloft, may see a clipper type system push across
northern new england late Wed wed night. Should remain dry
across the region, though some clouds will move into the higher
terrain. The chilliest temperatures are forecast for turkey day,
with readings only managing to reach the mid 20s to around 30
across the higher terrain ranging to around 40 along the s
coast.

By late Thursday and Friday, noting slow but steady mid level
height rises as another surface high pressure moves in from the
great lakes. Should see dry conditions continue as temperatures
will moderate, with Friday's forecasted highs about 5-10 degrees
milder than Thursday.
