Synopsis
Dry and unseasonably cool weather will continue into Monday evening.

An approaching warm front will bring a soaking heavy rain to the
region Tuesday into Tuesday evening. Warmer and muggier weather
returns Wednesday with scattered showers thunderstorms. Low
confidence forecast late this week into next weekend... But overall
feel mainly dry and seasonable weather will dominate.

Near term until 6 am this morning
150 am update...

skies are clearing skies as high clouds finally move to the
south. Radiational cooling will result in temps bottoming out in
the 40s. The backdoor front is pushing south from the gulf of
maine and will move through sne through daybreak followed by
increasing NE winds with gusts to 20-30 mph across eastern ma
coast. Expect rising temps after the frontal passage as the wind
comes from warmer sst.

Model soundings continue to show a shallow layer of moisture around
900-950 mb developing by daybreak Monday morning across NE ma,
allowing for some lower clouds to develop.

Short term 6 am this morning through 6 pm Tuesday
Monday...

will certainly feel like a fall day as an area of strong canadian
high pressure pushes SE and becomes centered over me nova scotia.

This sets us up for a brisk east wind, with gusts 20 to 25 mph.

Anticipating some gusts 25-30 mph along eastern ma during the
morning. Shallow layer of moisture remains at 900-950 mb, onshore
winds will likely help keep that moisture in place prompting a
considerable amount of lower clouds to linger over our area. However
since that moisture layer is so shallow, not expecting showers to
accompany it. Should have some breaks of sunshine. Then late in the
day, models show an increase in upper level moisture so could see
some cirrus moving in.

It will quite cool as 925 mb temps fall to 6-8c across much of the
area, even some 4c air at 925 across the far northern tier of ma.

Highs will range from the mid upper 50s across central and NE ma to
lower 60s lower ct valley and ri SE ma.

Monday night...

the high pressure center tracks eastward into the canadian
maritimes, with warm air advection bringing increasing moisture from
sw to ne, mainly after midnight. Will see cloudy skies as the night
wears on. Chances for rain increase across central and western
portions of the area during the early morning hours on Tuesday.

Long term Tuesday night through Sunday
Highlights...

* widespread soaking heavy rain Tue into Tue evening
* heavy showers may re-develop near the south coast late Tue night
* warmer & muggier Wed wed eve with scattered showers t-storms
* low confidence thu-sun... But favoring mainly dry & seasonable
details...

Tuesday and Tuesday night...

the model guidance continues to advertise a widespread soaking heavy
rainfall Tue into Tue evening. A warm front will be approaching
from the south coupled with a southerly low level jet pwat plume
that increases to 2-3 standard deviations above normal. Given a 40
to 50 knot low level jet with a warm front acting as a focus... The
stage is set for a soaking heavy rainfall. Overall... This looks
like a widespread 1 to 2 inch rainfall event with perhaps some
localized higher amounts around 2.50 inches. Appears the greatest
chance for the higher amounts will be focused across the
interior... Where the best forcing resides. High temps Tue will
mainly be in the 60s... But some locations across the interior high
terrain may not break 60.

Overall... Feel this heavy rain will be more of a typical nuisance
poor drainage street flooding event. We still can not rule out the
low risk for more significant flooding if convective elements get
involved. It is something to monitor but nothing warrants us to
issue any type of flood watch at this time.

Otherwise, if the warm front lifts north of the region Tue night
which is always tricky to predict... Precipitation should become more
scattered in nature and there may even be an embedded t-storm or
two. We also should note... May have to watch some for some tropical
moisture and downpours re-developing late near the south coast in
association with a low level jet tropical moisture plume getting
pulled northward.

Wednesday and Wednesday night...

model guidance indicates that southern new england will be in the
warm sector. This will result in a warmer and muggier day. High
temps should reach well into the 70s and it is possible that some
locales break 80 if enough solar insolation occurs. While Wednesday
will not be a complete washout... There will be the potential for
scattered showers and thunderstorms. Perhaps in the morning across
southeast new england with plume of tropical moisture. Another good
chance may come in the late Wed afternoon evening... When the
greatest height falls forcing arrive. Decent jet dynamics... So if
somehow we have enough instability can not rule out the low risk for
a few strong to severe thunderstorms across the interior. Main
concern would be risk for locally strong to damaging wind gusts.

Thursday through next weekend...

low confidence... But appears much of the time from Thu into next
weekend will feature dry seasonable weather. Low risk for some
showers Thu Fri as the GFS has a wave of low pressure near the south
coast... But most of the other guidance builds high pressure into the
region. Perhaps a weak front bring a few showers sometime sun
too... But overall feel this time period will feature mainly dry
weather.
