Synopsis
Dry and unseasonably cool weather will continue into this
evening. An approaching warm front will bring a soaking heavy
rain to the region Tuesday into Tuesday evening. Warmer and
muggier weather returns Wednesday with scattered
showers thunderstorms. Some uncertainty regarding the forecast
late this week into next weekend, but overall mainly dry and
seasonable weather will dominate.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Backdoor front moving into northern ma and will reach the south
coast by daybreak. A surge of gusty NE winds expected behind the
front through the morning, especially across eastern ma and ri
before diminishing somewhat in the afternoon. The NE flow will
result in a shallow layer of moisture in the 900-950 mb layer
which will contribute to some lower clouds moving east to west
across the region. We so expect some Sun to mix with the clouds
but there may be periods when clouds will dominate.

A chilly airmass for this time of year as 925 mb temps cool to
6-8c, even some 4c air across NE ma. Highs will range from the
mid upper 50s across central and NE ma to lower 60s ct valley
and ri SE ma.

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

expect some clearing in the evening with just high clouds,
especially across eastern new eng which will allow for decent
radiational cooling for the first part of the night. Low temps
should drop into the 40s across much of the region. Clouds will
increase overnight and leading edge of overrunning rain may move
into portions of western ma and northern ct toward daybreak. The
rest of sne should remain dry.

Tuesday...

a widespread soaking rainfall expected as warm front approaches
from the south with good forcing for ascent aided by a low level
jet. However, timing of heaviest rainfall for eastern new eng
may be delayed until the afternoon. Pwats approach 2 inches
which is 2sd above normal and low level wind anomalies are
2-3sd above normal. This is a good signal for heavy rainfall.

Fortunately, instability aloft is limited so rainfall rates
should not be excessive. Rainfall amounts through Tue will
average 1-2 inches in the interior where best forcing is located
along the nose of the low level jet. Locally higher amounts are
possible per hi-res guidance. Less rainfall with amounts less
than an inch expected across SE new eng. Widespread flooding is
not anticipated with just the typical urban and poor drainage
street flooding.

Temps will start out on the chilly side in cool sector north of
the warm front, but will rise through the 60s in the afternoon,
especially south of the mass pike. Temps may remain in the 50s
across interior northern ma for much of the day before rising
tue night. Gusty SE winds with gusts to 25-35 mph possible
across SE new eng in the afternoon as the low level jet moves
through.

Long term Tuesday night through Sunday
Highlights...

* widespread soaking heavy rain into Tue evening
* much warmer & muggier Wed wed eve with scattered showers t-storms
* forecast uncertainty thu-sun... But favoring mainly dry & seasonable
details...

Tuesday night...

warm front approaching from the south with core of low level
southerly jet (45-50kt) across eastern ma and exiting offshore. Thus
heaviest rain likely confined to eastern ma Tue evening then moving
offshore. Thus rain should transition to more showery weather
overnight tue. Although with pwats around 2 inches, can't rule out a
few tropical downpours. Also with dew pts surging upward thru the
60s expect areas of fog possible. Therefore temps likely rising
overnight.

Wednesday and Wednesday night...

good model agreement on warm sector overspreading the region with
all model guidance offering +20c to +21c air at 925 mb wed! These
warm temps aloft should easily support highs Wed afternoon near 80
and perhaps a few degs warmer if some breaks of sunshine develop as
clouds thin Wed afternoon. Humid as well with dew pts climbing into
the low 70s. Thus a summer-like day along with about 500j of cape.

This instability combined with approaching cold front will result in
a round of convection, potentially a few strong to severe storms
possible. Heavy rain possible too with pwats surging up to 2+
inches, which is about +2 to +3 standard deviations. Something else
to watch is a tropical disturbance southwest of bermuda this
morning. This feature may get entrained into the SW flow along the
eastern seaboard and ride northeast along or ahead of approaching
frontal boundary wed-wed night. This would increase the heavy
rain flood threat here.

Thursday through next weekend...

lower heights across new england suggest a cooling trend but with
southeast ridge holding strong the core of the cooler air will
remain across the great lakes into the high plains. Mainly dry
weather should prevail, however some signs that cold front from wed
night gets hung along our south coast with a wave of low pressure
possibly bring a period of rain here Thu night into Fri morning.
