Synopsis
A few showers remain possible today into early Thursday, but the
majority of this time period should feature dry weather. A more
potent storm system late Thursday into early Friday with
numerous showers and a few embedded thunderstorms that may
contain locally heavy rainfall. Dry and seasonable weather
returns for the weekend, then summer warmth for early next week
with a risk for a few showers and thunderstorms as a cold front
approaches from the west.

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

mid-morning satellite imagery showing breaks in the cloud cover over
interior southern new england. Expecting breaks in the cloud
cover over this area thru the afternoon. However, stratus fog
over east coastal ma and the CAPE islands will likely be
tougher to break. This is due to the stratus deck extending
well offshore accompanied by an onshore flow. Visibility has
continued to improve as areas of fog lift and dissipate.

However the offshore stratus deck may re-introduce fog near the
shoreline at times today.

Not much by way of forcing for convection today, however the warmer
interior should allow for surface-based CAPE up to a few hundred
j kg, and pwats gradually increasing above 1.5". This will allow for
a few showers to develop, and brief heavy rainfall can't be ruled
out. Current forecast pops reflect this thinking. The marine-
influenced shoreline will minimize shower potential in that area.

Temps will have marine influence nearshore this afternoon, with
highs in the 60s to low 70s. Over the interior anticipating highs in
the 70s, with some locales nearing 80.

Previous discussion:
dependency on erosion of low clouds and fog as well as surface winds,
whether more E onshore, as to where the environment can destabilize
within the continental-tropical airmass yielding widely scattered
showers, the additional potential of heavy downpours given slow
steering motions. Airmass generated as there is seemingly not
much synoptic support nor lift, higher pops focused W where
thetae will be on the rise in more favorable regions of surface
- h85 lapse rates, overnight mid-level dry air and subsidence
behind yesterdays weak wave low shifting e.

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

widely scattered shower activity continues, however exactly where
is left to be determined. Chance pops for all of S new england given
uncertainty however noting height falls across the region, a diffuse
warm frontal boundary beginning to lift back N along with thetae
continental-tropical airmass. Still an absence of lift and synoptic
forcing which resides further W across the oh river valley. Little
airmass change with some boundary layer cooling and continued onshore
flow, expecting low clouds and fog to spread back towards the interior
if not having persisted throughout the day. Lows around the low 60s.

Thursday ...

return of widespread rains with embedded heavier showers and thunder-
storms, the concern that there could be a localized area of exceptionally
heavier rain contributing to flooding. Digging trof axis with accompanying
synoptics and mid-level energy above a surface-reflection cold front.

High thetae continental-tropical airmass well in place with precipitable
waters to 2-inches ahead of a surface low deepening to 995 mb (atypical
for mid june). Localized convergence ahead of the front with instability
and freezing level heights 13-14 kft beneath mid-level ascent and
h3 jet streak, the possibility for deep-layer ascent and locally
heavy rainfall. Convective allowing models signaling some appreciable
rainfall amounts over central portions of new england. Wpc excessive
rainfall outlook with a slight chance for flash flooding. An eye
on the steering-level flow. No certainty just yet as to exactly where
impacts will be felt. Morphology dependent. Notably the 19.0z gfs
is a faster solution compared to a lot of other guidance. Could
end up mostly dry Thursday under the continued influence of marine
air, possibly including low clouds and fog. Higher confidence
s E whereas out towards the ct river valley has a better chance
of destabilizing and seeing outcomes if supportive synoptics are
there. Preference to href 3-hour probability match mean. Not so
much focused on actual progged rainfall amounts but rather the
probability areas.

Long term Thursday night through Tuesday
Highlights...

* showers and a few embedded thunderstorms Thursday night with a
low risk for flooding mainly across western and northern ma
* lingering showers possible Friday morning but mainly dry weather
by afternoon
* dry seasonable this weekend with Sun being the warmer of the days
* warmer with summer-like temps early next week with the risk for a
few showers t-storms but that majority of the time will be dry
details...

Thursday night...

a fairly strong low pressure system for late june approximately
995 mb will track across southern new england Thursday night.

This combined with pwats around 2 inches, some elevated
instability, and a low level convergence zone will result in
showers and a few embedded thunderstorms with localized
torrential rainfall possible. There remains uncertainty as to
where the axis of heaviest rain localized flash flood threat
will setup as we will discuss below.

Most of the guidance suggests that the risk for localized flash
flooding should be to the west and north of our region, where better
low level convergence forcing is depicted. However, we have to be
careful that mesoscale processes do not push the front further
south than modeled. This would place western and northern ma in
the risk for localized flash flooding, since activity may train
along the moving boundary.

So in an nutshell... Current guidance suggests the main flash flood
threat will be west and north of our region.

Nonetheless... Mesoscale processes could shift the boundary
further south putting our western and northern ma zones at risk.

Something will have to watch closely over the next 24 to 36
hours.

Friday...

some lingering showers possible Friday morning, but most of the
guidance suggests northwest flow behind departing low pressure.

Should result in mainly dry weather by afternoon. High temperatures
should top out mainly in the 70s.

Saturday and Sunday...

a closed low over the canadian maritimes will result in
dry seasonable weather for the weekend. It will be a bit breezy sat,
but overall a great start to the weekend with highs mainly in the
70s. The closed low lift further north on Sun allowing for a
warming trend to begin with many locations seeing highs of 80+.

Humidity levels will remain comfortable so a really nice weekend is
in the cards.

Monday and Tuesday...

upper level ridge begins to flex its muscles allowing for rising
height fields summer-like warmth to finally make it into southern
new england by next Mon and tue. Highs will probably be well up
into the 80s to perhaps near 90. The majority of the time will
feature dry weather, but a few showers t-storms will be possible
sometime later Mon Tue as moisture and instability increase out
ahead of a cold front.

Aviation 14z Wednesday through Sunday
Forecaster confidence levels...

low - less than 30 percent.

Moderate - 30 to 60 percent.

High - greater than 60 percent.

Short term through Thursday ... Moderate confidence.

Today ...

ifr-MVFR lifting towardsVFR W to E thru the afternoon.

However, some of the immediate coastal locations especially the
cape and islands may remain or hover around MVFR-ifr as low
clouds and fog flirt with the coast.

Tonight ...

ifr-lifr filtering back in across the interior with continued
light winds and spotty shra activity. Lowest conditions along
the coast.

Thursday ...

winds shifting more s, could be a situation in where ifr-lifr
conditions erode S to N rather than W to e. Towards the latter-
half, the threat of widespread ra with embedded +ra and possible
tsra out across interior new england. With any activity could
see brief lower conditions.

Kbos terminal...

ifr stratus lingers thru midday. Conditions gradually improve
to MVFRVFR during the afternoon.

Kbdl terminal...

MVFR thru midday, which should improve toVFR for the afternoon.

Monitoring for spotty shra activity possible by afternoon, but
the bulk of the activity should be northwest of the terminal.

Outlook Thursday night through Sunday ... Moderate confidence.

Thursday night: mainlyVFR-MVFR, with local ifr possible.

Shra, isolated tsra, patchy br.

Friday:VFR. Breezy. Slight chance shra.

Friday night through Saturday night:VFR. Breezy.

Sunday:VFR.
