Synopsis
Dry and chilly weather continues into Sunday afternoon. Weak
low pressure may bring patchy light rain and or snow late Sunday
into Monday. Another shot of colder air moves in by the middle
of next week, though it should be mainly dry.

Near term until 6 am Saturday morning
Weak upper shortwave races across new england early tonight,
then moves off through the maritimes after midnight. Satellite
images show many clouds over central mass and western areas.

Every so often a patch of clouds breaks off and drifts southeast
across the rest of our region.

As the shortwave moves off to the east, any remaining lift to
diminish. This will allow the cloud coverage to shrink westward,
bringing clear or clearing skies to much of southern new england
overnight.

No change in thinking for temperatures, with sfc temps falling
to the upper 20s and 30s.

Earlier discussion...

a few left over light rain snow showers will wind down early
this evening. Temps mainly above freezing... So no problems
expected on the roadways. Otherwise... Dry weather with just an
abundance of clouds this evening. We should see the clouds
scatter out tonight... But guidance might be doing this too fast
given a fair amount of low level moisture remaining. Enough
westerly flow aloft and lack of cold advection will keep
temperatures from bottoming out tonight. Lows should generally
range from around 30 to the middle 30s... So many locations will
not see temperatures drop too much from their current late
afternoon readings.

Short term 6 am Saturday morning through Saturday night
Saturday...

westerly flow aloft and at the surface will result in a
dry tranquil Saturday. A mixture of clouds and sunshine with decent
mixing will allow highs to reach the lower 40s in the higher
terrain... To the middle and upper 40s elsewhere. It is not out
of the question that a couple locations hit 50. While these
temperatures are still below normal for mid november... Quite a
bit milder than what we have experienced the last few days.

Saturday night...

large high pressure gradually builds in from the west Saturday
night. This will result in a dry, but chilly night. While we may
see an increase in some mid high level cloudiness
overnight... There should be enough of a window to allow most
locations to bottom out in the 20s especially with early season
snow cover in place.

Long term Sunday through Friday
Highlights...

* weak low pressure brings periods of rain and snow late Sun into
mon
* dry and colder mid week
* potential for warm up toward next weekend
overview...

high pressure on Sunday will give way to a weak low pressure system
which crosses sne late Sunday bringing a mix of rain and snow
showers to the region. There exists good model agreement that the
broad upper trough extending from canada sweeps it east by mid week.

This ushers in a large surface high pressure and a drier, much
colder air mass. This dry airmass sticks around through the end of
the week while temperatures, after bottoming out on Wednesday, start
to moderate back toward more seasonable warmth. There's good support
for this warmup, as both the eps and GEFS ensemble models show
anomolous warmth in the low levels.

Details...

Sunday...

Sunday will be a quiet day under the influence of a large surface
high centered over sne. Winds are light under a dry zonal flow at
the mid levels with pwats <0.5". We'll start out with partly sunny
skies, but clouds are on the increase through the day from south to
north as mid level moisture streams in ahead of the next system.

Northwest to west winds initially will keep temps cool, topping out
in the 30s and low 40s.

Sunday night and Monday...

flow becomes more amplified late Sunday as a shortwave swings
through the broad upper trough extending from a mid level low over
hudson bay. This helps develop an inland surface low that tracks
across our south coast overnight. A weak warm front lifts north
overnight with an increased tap of moisture through the column
(pwats ~0.75") for widespread light precipitation. The airmass
remains cold enough that we'll see snow initially for areas away
from the coast. Along the coast onshore winds will keep the column
too warm. Mid and upper level flow then becomes southwesterly as we
go into Monday, which will warm temperatures and change thing over
to rain from south to north through early Monday. QPF amounts are
minimal, though there is still ample disagreement. The GFS ec want
to bring in between a quarter and a half inch of liquid while the
higher res NAM indicates much less, so went with a blend for now.

Tuesday through Friday...

Tuesday we remain under the broad upper trough but should remain
mostly dry with clearing skies and our last "warmer" day with highs
in the 30s-40s (it's all relative). By Wednesday a large surface
high moves in bringing good CAA and a very cold airmass. H85
temperatures dip around -10 to -14c, 2 to 3 sd below normal.

Deterministic and ensemble models paint a similar picture with low
temps in the teens to low 20s Wednesday morning and highs in the 20s
to 30s. This CAA will also have potential to help mix down a decent
h95 jet for some gusty winds, but confidence is low on this given
~24 hr timing difference between the GFS and ec. Thursday and Friday
temperatures begin to moderate a bit each day as the lob of arctic
air rotates out of the area. Details are uncertain but in general
Thursday-Friday look dry as a weak ridge builds toward the east
coast and temperatures moderate into the 40s. Ensemble solutions
begin to show anomolous warmth in the low levels by next weekend and
we could in store for a significant warm up.

Aviation 03z Saturday through Wednesday
Forecaster confidence levels...

low - less than 30 percent.

Moderate - 30 to 60 percent.

High - greater than 60 percent.

Short term through Saturday night ...

overnight... Moderate to high confidence.

MainlyVFR with cloud bases 3500 to 4500 feet and a trend to mainly
clear skies overnight. West winds will diminish, but 25 to 35
knot gusts will continue across portions of the outer CAPE ack
with good mixing over the relatively mild ocean.

Saturday and Saturday night... High confidence. MainlyVFR but
some marginal MVFR CIGS are possible generally during the
daylight hours across the interior. Westerly wind gusts around 20
knots are expected Saturday afternoon.

Kbos terminal... Moderate to high confidence in taf.

Kbdl terminal... Moderate to high confidence in taf.

Sunday night: MVFR ifr conditions possible. Chance sn, chance

Marine
Forecaster confidence levels...

low - less than 30 percent.

Moderate - 30 to 60 percent.

High - greater than 60 percent.

Short term through Saturday night ... High confidence.

Overnight...

winds are slowly diminishing. Observations of gusts on the
southern waters through 10 pm showed gusts at 33-34 kt, still
close to gale. We will continue gale warnings through planned
expiration at 06z 1 am. Continue seas at 5 feet or higher on all
exposed waters.

Saturday and Saturday night... Pressure gradient will continue to
weaken... But enough mixing should still yield westerly wind
gusts of 20 to 25 knots. We will likely need small craft
headlines for at least seas into Saturday afternoon over the
open waters.

Outlook Sunday through Wednesday ...

Sunday: winds less than 25 kt. Seas locally approaching 5 ft.

Sunday night: winds less than 25 kt. Chance of rain.

Monday through Monday night: winds less than 25 kt. Areas of
seas approaching 5 ft. Slight chance of rain.

Tuesday: low risk for small craft advisory winds with gusts up
to 25 kt. Areas of seas approaching 5 ft. Slight chance of
rain. Local visibility 1 to 3 nm.

Tuesday night: moderate risk for small craft advisory winds
with gusts up to 30 kt. Local rough seas. Slight chance of
snow. Areas of visibility 1 to 3 nm.

Wednesday: winds less than 25 kt. Local rough seas. Local
visibility 1 to 3 nm.
