Synopsis
High pressure will maintain dry weather this week along with a
gradual warming trend.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Shortwave has pushed offshore and clearing has set in across
most of sne in drying and subsidence behind it. Exception is
near CAPE cod and islands, where northerly flow over milder
ocean was producing some ocean effect clouds (and a few showers
earlier). Trend will be for clearing by mid morning, as upper
flow turns more anticyclonic and northerly flow begins to back
to west.

Flow may weaken enough to allow sea breeze to develop around
midday along eastern ma coast, but our thinking is there will
be just enough mixing to prevent that from happening. Winds do
turn more W SW this afternoon.

Many locations will be off to a cold start with temperatures in
30s and areas of frost. We are keeping frost advisory posted
until 8 am. Airmass doesn't recover too much today but sunshine
will help temperatures reach well into 50s, if not near 60 in a
few locations.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Wednesday
High pressure becomes centered south of new england, putting
us in SW flow tonight and wed. Clear skies and light winds will
allow for radiational cooling tonight, so we undercut mos
guidance, and there is potential for patchy frost across
interior once again. Frost advisories will probably need to be
re-issued later this morning, once we assess this morning's
lows and decide which zones will remain active for frost freeze
program.

On wed, we begin the warmup with increasing SW flow. Airmass
remains very dry through column so plenty of sunshine is
expected. This should boost highs into 60s and lower 70s.

Long term Wednesday night through Monday
* highlights...

- warmer than normal through this period
- dry weather through this weekend
this portion of the forecast will feature a nearly zonal mid
level flow evolving into a strong ridge toward this weekend.

This will mean a warming trend, and above normal temperatures.

Almost no moisture to work within the lowest levels of the
atmosphere, so mainly clear skies expected until later this
weekend. This should even be the case for a weak cold frontal
passage late Thursday into Friday.

Operational and ensemble guidance agree on the overall pattern,
but do have some detail differences. Will continue to favor a
consensus approach to smooth over the less predictable details.

Aviation 07z Tuesday through Saturday
Forecaster confidence levels...

low - less than 30 percent.

Moderate - 30 to 60 percent.

High - greater than 60 percent.

Short term through Wednesday ... High confidence.

MVFR ceilings near CAPE cod and islands will scatter out toward
sunrise, leavingVFR conditions today into wed. N winds gusting
to 20-25kt on CAPE cod and islands this morning will diminish by
afternoon as winds turn to W SW areawide.

Kbos terminal... High confidence in taf. Brief weak sea breeze
possible 15z-19z but not included in TAF since it looks
marginal.

Kbdl terminal... High confidence in taf.

Outlook Wednesday night through Saturday ... High confidence.

MainlyVFR through the period except some patchy ground fog at
typically prone terminals each morning.

Marine
Forecaster confidence levels...

low - less than 30 percent.

Moderate - 30 to 60 percent.

High - greater than 60 percent.

Short term through Wednesday ... High confidence.

Maintaining small craft advisories, mainly through this morning
for lingering 25kt gusts and 5 ft seas, except on outer waters e
of CAPE cod where seas will take most of day to subside. Winds
diminish this afternoon and become w, before SW flow prevails
tonight and wed.

Outlook Wednesday night through Saturday ... High confidence.

Mainly tranquil boating weather expected across the coastal
waters through this period. The exception should be a period
late Thursday into Friday morning when a dry cold front crosses
the waters. Wind gusts may reach up to 25 kt behind this front.

Seas may approach 5 feet as well, especially across the outer
coastal waters. Small craft advisories may be needed for at
least a portion of the waters late Thursday into Friday.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
