1031 am edt Wed sep 20 2017

Synopsis
An extended stretch of fair and warm weather is expected into
next week as high pressure dominates.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Cirrus, dense at times, from tropical storm jose is moving
across the eastern 1 2 of the CWA this morning. Models suggest
that a fairly dense cirrus canopy should be in place across this
same area through the day. Thus tweaked cloud cover for later in
the day to keep skies more on the cloudy side.

Temperatures are tracking closely to forecasts. So, despite
dense cirrus not of a mind to lower MAX temps.

As far as tropical storm jose goes, the storm continues to move
northeast at around 7 mph. This general motion is expected to
continue today with a decrease in forward speed along with
gradual weakening. Please refer to the national hurricane center
for forecast and other details on jose. Again, no impacts in our
area from jose.

Short term 6 pm this evening through Friday night
The ridge over the eastern united states strengthens at all
levels of the atmosphere and will result in fair and continued
warm weather for the area. Tropical storm jose will meander off
the east coast and continue to weaken. Please refer to the
national hurricane center for forecast and other details.

It will not be a muggy humid as dew points gradually drop
eventually into the mid 40s to mid 50s. This will result in
cooler nights compared to recent ones.

Long term Saturday through Tuesday
Highly amplified flow pattern during the long term featuring a full-
latitude trough over the western third of the country and
anomalously strong ridge centered over the central and eastern great
lakes and northeastern us. Per the latest gefs, this ridge is
forecast to be +1 to +2 sd at h500. As a result, expecting
temperatures to run significantly above normal, with h850 temps
averaging around 15-18c. This should lead to high temps in the 80s
in the valleys, possibly approaching 90 in the warmest spots by
Sunday. Dewpoints are forecast to rise into the 60s Sunday into
Tuesday, so it'll feel quite summer-y. The moisture will also allow
low temps to be well above normal values which are mainly in the
40s.

The only fly in the ointment for the above scenario has to do with
tropical cyclone activity. By the long term period, jose will be
post-tropical and likely continuing to weaken, but there is still
uncertainty with its path. There are a non-trivial number of
solutions that drift post-tc jose back westward as the ridge builds,
which could lead to increasing cloud cover and perhaps even showers
over southern portions of the forecast area Sunday onward. However,
will continue to keep the forecast dry and mainly sunny as even if a
westward drift occurs, it may be too far south to impact our
forecast area. Finally, will have to keep an eye on TC maria toward
the end of the period as it moves poleward in the vicinity of 75w.

Still large model spread in both speed and track, with consensus
keeping its impacts south of the forecast area through the long
term.

Aviation 15z Wednesday through Sunday
MainlyVFR expected for the majority of the TAF period as jose
continues to drift northeastward and the terminals remain on its
periphery. Kpsf may see MVFR linger a bit longer into the
afternoon. Tonight, still enough influence from jose in terms of
cloud cover and light northerly breeze to keep fog at bay,
except perhaps at kgfl which is furthest removed.

Winds will be from the north to northeast through the period.

Speeds will increase to around 10 kt during the daylight hours
with some gusts to around 20 kt at kpsf kpou closer to jose's
circulation. Speeds will decrease to less than 10 kt tonight.

Outlook...

Thursday through Sunday: no operational impact. No sig wx.

Fire weather
An extended stretch of fair and warm weather is expected into
next week as high pressure dominates.

Minimum relative humidity values will only be in the upper 50s
to upper 60s this afternoon with higher values across western
new england. A recovery to 90 to near 100 percent will occur
tonight. Minimums are expected to be in the 50s Thursday
afternoon.

Winds will be out of the north to northeast at 10 to 15 mph with
gusts into the 20s today for areas south and east of the capital
district with lighter speed to the north and west. Winds will
not be as strong Thursday.

Hydrology
No widespread hydrologic impacts are expected. An extended
stretch of fair and warm weather is expected into next week as
high pressure dominates.

observed and forecast river stages and lake elevations, please
