Synopsis for massachusetts and rhode island coastal waters.. A warm front will pass north of the region today. Low pres tracking well to our north Monday will drive a cold front across the waters Monday evening. High pressure builds in from the west Tue into Wed. NEar gale force northwest wind gusts are possible on Tuesday and Tuesday evening, especially over the eastern waters.

Synopsis
A warm front will lift north of the region this afternoon.

Scattered showers and an isolated thunderstorm will move
through this morning. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are
possible again tonight. Summer-like heat and humidity is
forecast for Monday. A cold front will trigger scattered strong
thunderstorms Monday afternoon and early evening. This will be
followed by dry, but windy and much cooler weather Tuesday. Dry
weather continues Wednesday into Thursday afternoon with less
wind and temperatures moderating back to near normal. A period
or two of unsettled weather may return Thursday night into next
Saturday, but a washout is not expected.

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

scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms were developing
early this morning in western ny from syracuse southwest to the
pa border. They were forming on boundary that separates air
masses... With showalter indices dropping from +10 to near or
just below 0. This much more unstable air is also coincident
with a 25-35 kt low level jet. High resolution models all bring
this scattered convection eastward across southern new england
this morning, mainly along and north of the mass pike. It exits
the boston area between noon and 2 pm. Just to reiterate, not
all areas will see rain, but any showers could be briefly heavy
as they speed eastward.

Overall, skies will be partly sunny and highs will reach the
mid 70s away from the coast. Dewpoints will be climbing to the
mid and upper 50s - not nearly as pleasant as yesterday, but
not uncomfortable. Expecting south to southwest winds to gust up
to 20 to 25 mph this afternoon.

A line of showers and thunderstorms, some strong to severe,
is expected to form across new york state by late afternoon.

While we are not expecting severe weather in southern new
england, there could be a few thunderstorms working their way
into franklin and hampshire counties of northwest ma toward
evening.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Monday
Tonight...

moisture continues to increase across our region tonight.

Dewpoint temperatures will rise to the lower 60s. That will lead
to the development of low cloudiness and fog, locally dense,
especially along the south coast, where ocean water temperatures
are still only in the lower 50s.

Remnants of convection to our west may overspread parts of
southern new england this evening. Additional showers and
scattered thunderstorms are likely to develop after midnight,
especially over ct, ri, and southeast ma, per latest mesoscale
guidance. K indices range from 33 to 35. But there is little to
no cape. Any convection is expected to be elevated and not
severe.

Monday...

a cold front will be approaching the region late Monday
afternoon and moving through early Monday night. Out ahead of
this front, low clouds and fog in the early morning should break
out into partial sunshine. If this happens, temperatures over
the interior are forecast to soar to the lower 80s. Some mid 80s
are not out of the question. Dewpoints will be in the mid 60s.

Several parameters are in place for the potential for an active
severe weather day. Abundant CAPE is forecast, with surface
based CAPE up to 2000 j kg. Winds are mainly unidirectional,
from the southwest and with 35-50 kt winds from 850-700 mb, that
is sufficient for severe convective wind gusts. While damaging
winds would be the main threat from any storms, there is some
potential for an isolated tornado, especially where low level
winds are locally backed (more southerly to southeasterly).

Based on several tornado cases we have studied, a very important
factor is the CAPE in the 0-3 km layer. These values soar to
near 300-350 j kg, which when combined with 0-1 km helicity
values of 125-175, lead to this isolated tornado potential. Spc
sref indicates relatively high probabilities of supercells and
the GFS sigtor paramater reaches 2 to 3 from central ma
northeastward into the merrimack valley. There is much that
could preclude severe weather from happening. If clouds linger
longer than expected it would cut down on heating and
instability. Also, instability could be maximized farther to the
north in central new england, with less of a threat here.

We will be keeping a close eye on this situation.

Long term Monday night through Saturday
Highlights...

* any lingering showers t-storms dissipate by mid-late Mon evening
* dry and much cooler Tue into Tue evening with northwest wind gusts
of 30 to 40 mph and a low risk for a few gusts between 45-50 mph
* dry weather continues Wed into Thu afternoon with much less wind
and temperatures moderating back to seasonable levels by thu
* a period of two of unsettled weather may return sometime thu
night into next sat, but a washout is not expected
details...

Monday night...

any lingering scattered shower and thunderstorm activity should come
to an end by mid to late Monday evening. Otherwise, much drier air
will work in behind the cold front overnight on gusty northwest
winds. Low temperatures will generally range from the upper 40s to
the middle 50s by daybreak, but a much drier airmass will have
worked into the region by daybreak.

Tuesday and Tuesday night...

an anomalous and intensifying low pressure system in vicinity of the
canadian maritimes will bring dry weather, but much cooler
temperatures. It will also be quite windy for late may standards.

The 850 mb northwest jet is on the order of 40 to 50 knots Tuesday
afternoon and evening, which is about 3+ standard deviations above
normal for this time of year. Therefore, we are confident in
northwest wind gusts of 30 to 40 mph with good mixing and a low risk
for a few 45 to 50 mph wind gusts. Given many trees are almost fully
leaved there will be an elevated risk for some downed tree
limbs isolated power outages. Later shifts may need to consider a
special weather statement or wind advisory.

High temperatures on Tuesday will generally be in the 60s. However,
the strong winds will make it feel cooler especially after Monday s
warmth and humidity. Low temperatures Tuesday night will be in the
40s.

Wednesday and Thursday...

the closed upper level low near the canadian maritimes Tue will be
lifting northeast and further away from our region Wed into thu
afternoon. At the same time... Surface high pressure will be building
in from the west. The result will be continued dry weather, but
with much less wind and moderating temperatures Wed into thu
afternoon. Highs should be well up into the 60s to near 70 wed. Most
areas should break 70 on Thu away from any localized marine
influences along the coast.

Thursday night through next Saturday...

the strong southeast upper level ridge will try to flex its muscles,
but unsure how far north it will get. This may place our region in
more westerly flow aloft with perhaps the threat for a period or two
of unsettled weather, but we are not expecting a washout. Perhaps we
have a brief return to warmth humidity to by Sat ahead of the next
cold front, but too far out to say much more at this time.
