Synopsis
Low pressure crossing southern new england tonight will bring more
widespread showers and thunderstorms, some with heavy rain. The low
will move offshore Friday morning followed by a drying trend in the
afternoon from west to east, but possibly not arriving until late in
the day across CAPE cod and the islands. Dry and seasonable weather
returns Saturday. Warmer conditions arrive Sunday into Monday then
the weather turns unsettled with the risk of showers Tuesday into
Wednesday. Some improvement possible Thursday.

Near term until 5 am Friday morning
7 pm update...

quite the moist airmass with dew pts now 70+ across ct into
western-central ma, with 60s elsewhere. SPC mesoanalysis has
pwats near 2 inches over the region. Thus it won't take much to
trigger brief heavy downpours. For example seeing new showers
developing as of this writing over CAPE cod and the islands.

However previously organized convection over nj nyc and ny state
continues to weaken with cloud tops warming, as short wave and
associated forcing over northern ny state exits into northern
new england. Therefore coverage of showers this evening will be
widely scattered, although brief heavy downpours likely with any
convection.

More organized showers will arrive after midnight into fri
morning as trailing short wave trough over eastern great lakes
moves east toward new england.

Given this moist saturated airmass dense fog will impact the
south coast of ma ri thru at least this evening with some
improvement after midnight when winds shift from sse to ssw.

Previous forecast verifying nicely and captures details mentioned
above so no major changes planned. Previous discussion below.

==================================================================
tonight...

low pressure crosses over southern new england, with showers and
isolated to scattered thunderstorms moving into the area early this
evening. Models showing up to several hundred j kg MUCAPE this
evening. Locally heavy rainfall possible, as pwats remain around 2"
east of the low center and along ahead of the associated cold front,
which will cross sne during the overnight. Added lift from the upper
jet and an approaching short wave. Models, including cams, are in
good agreement that focus for strongest convection should be to our
n nw. However, remnants of that convection will move into our area,
especially western ma north central ct. In addition to any
convection moving into our area from the w, we will still have ample
coverage of showers to warrant likely to categorical pops.

Rainfall totals for tonight will vary, and should mainly range from
0.25" to 1", with localized higher amounts to 2" possible. There is
the potential for the usual minor urban and poor drainage flooding.

The lowest flash flood guidance values, around 2" hour, are located
in western ma. While we can't completely rule out this amount of
rain falling in a short timeframe, it would likely be isolated in
nature.

Also, over western ma north central ct there is a low prob of an
isolated strong to severe thunderstorm this evening. This would
mainly be for strong wind gusts.

A dense fog advisory has been issued for coastal ri, south coastal
ma and the CAPE and islands including block island. Areas of dense
fog are expected to linger or redevelop this evening and last into
the overnight, with visibility below 1 2 or 1 4 mile at times.

Surface dewpoints will drop minimally overnight, which will in turn
limit overnight lows. Temps should fall into the low to mid 60s for
most of the area, with a few spots over the interior high terrain
dipping into the upper 50s around daybreak fri.

Short term 5 am Friday morning through 6 pm Friday
Friday...

pattern for Friday is looks more like something we see in the cool
season as opposed to late june, as models close off 700 mb low as it
tracks towards the canadian maritimes. Surface low will also be
tracking in that direction over the course of the day. We are left
in a N NW flow, airmass dries out over sne over the course of the
day, with pwats dropping below 1" in western portions of our
area by 18z, then central and eastern portions of the region
between 18z and 00z. The chance for showers continues into the
afternoon, but diminishes from W to e. Locally heavy rainfall
will be possible in the morning.

The surface low deepens as it moves away, tightening the pressure
gradient over our area. This should allow for some wind gusts of 20-
30 mph, especially during the afternoon when some breaks in the
clouds allow for mixing.

Highs recover into 70s. Decreasing clouds during the afternoon
especially over the far interior, where skies should turn mostly
sunny.

Long term Friday night through Thursday
Highlights...

* mainly dry seasonable Sat then turning warmer sun
* warm and dry weather likely lingers into Mon but then risk of
showers Tue and Wed with some improvement possible thu
details...

Friday night...

post frontal airmass overspreads the region supporting dry cool
weather with lows in the 50s along with a brisk NW wind. Comfy with
dew pt falling into the upper 40s and lower 50s.

Saturday...

nw flow aloft but anomalous closed mid level low remains over the
maritimes and ejects a robust short wave across eastern ma and ri,
accompanied by -20c air at 500 mb. Nam GFS ec and canadian models
all generate some light QPF across this region which seems
reasonable based on instability mid level lapse rates and strong
cyclonic flow (especially by late jun standards). Not a washout but
a few widely scattered afternoon showers likely ri and eastern ma.

Typically cold air aloft of this magnitude supports a low risk of
small hail but as previous forecaster noted dew pts in the 40s will
likely limit available moisture for updraft potential. Worse case
scenario will be for a few gusty showers given large temp dew pt
spread (inverted-v signature). Otherwise a real nice day with
morning sunshine mixing with afternoon clouds and highs 75-80 along
with a refreshing NW breeze given deep blyr mixing.

Sunday...

closed mid level low exits into eastern quebec resulting in height
rises here in new england. Dry NW flow aloft supports abundant
sunshine and warmer than Saturday with 850 mb temps rising to +12c
to +14c. Wnw winds (not as windy as sat) will allow temps to
overachieve with highs well into the low and mid 80s. Thus our max
temps are a few degs warmer than guidance. Warm at the beaches as
well given wnw land trajectory winds. Dew pts in the 50s will yield
comfortable humidity levels.

Monday...

deep layer ridge remains just west of new england so warm dry
weather will continue. Although with high pres overhead afternoon
seabreezes will keep the coastline cooler than Sunday.

Tuesday and Wednesday...

unsettled weather likely as next trough over the great lakes ejects
eastward. 12z ec and past runs have been more amplified than the
gfs. Both the 12z GEFS and ecens are more amplified than the 12z
gfs, thus providing some support toward the more amplified ec runs.

So risk of showers from Monday night Tue and possibly into wed.

Cooler temps too given cloud cover, risk of showers and onshore wind
especially tue.

Thursday...

some improvement possible with risk of showers more diurnal given
cold pool aloft and coverage of showers probably less than Tue and
wed. Given winds become more wsw temps should recover a bit as well.

Aviation 00z Friday through Tuesday
Forecaster confidence levels...

low - less than 30 percent.

Moderate - 30 to 60 percent.

Short term through Friday ... Moderate confidence.

23z update ...

mainly a mix of ifr lifr in low clouds fog thru this evening,
then some improvement after 03z as winds shift from sse to ssw.

Showers with locally brief heavy downpours should be widely
scattered this evening, then becoming more widespread after
midnight and especially toward Fri morning. Any tsra should be
very isolated. Earlier discussion below.

form.

Tonight...

se winds 10 to 20 kt will back during the overnight as a low

to 5 feet. Areas of fog will persist overnight, especially over the
southern waters where visibility below 1 2 mile is expected.

Friday...

small craft advisories posted for the southern outer coastal waters
and ri bi sounds for seas. Seas 3 to6 feet are expected in the sca
area. NW winds prevail during the day as surface low tracks NE into
the canadian maritimes. Gusts around 20 kts are expected, can't rule
out a few gusts to 25 kts. Showers linger in the morning,
diminishing during the afternoon.

Outlook Friday night through Tuesday ... Moderate confidence.
