Synopsis
Scattered snow showers will yield some minor accumulations mainly
across the high terrain before ending toward daybreak. Windy and
cold conditions prevail. After sunrise dry weather prevails but it
remains windy. Milder temperatures arrive Sunday, but it will
turn colder again Monday into the middle of next week.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
1015 am update...

satellite shows good clearing over the past few hours which will
help temperatures reach into the upper 40s even with moderate
caa. Wnw winds have come up across all of southern new england,
gusting 25-30kts with a few spots closer to 35kts. The edge of
the LLJ core will be moving further offshore this afternoon, so
expecting most locations to peak over the next several hours,
though we'll remain gusty through at least sunset (longer along
the coast).

Previous discussion...

wv imagery shows the shortwave just SE of the region as of 11z.

This suggest predominantly ava at this point aloft. Sfc winds
have also begun to increase out of the W with the impulse of
pres rises and enhanced mixing now after sunrise. These two
factors have led to much weak sn rates with sn completely ending
in spots across W ma ct. Feel that with bl mixing, there is
likely only another 1-2 hrs of sn left at any one location.

Peak LLJ is this morning, so its likely that gusts will settle
somewhat late morning and afternoon, but 30-35 kt. CAPE islands
still have best chance of exceeding these values later today,
so will maintain the current wind advisory as it stands.

Temps will recover nicely this afternoon to the upper 40s and
low 50s, low to mid 40s high terrain. However the gusty west
winds will make it feel considerably cooler with wind chills in
the 30s.

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

trough finally exits offshore and is replaced by height rises
supporting dry weather. Chilly airmass remains in place with temps
falling into the 20s region-wide. Gusty west winds persist so
looking at wind chills in the teens.

Sunday ...

short wave ridging provides plenty of sunshine with perhaps some
late day mid high clouds from next approaching trough. However a
real fine day by late march standards with temps climbing into the
upper 50s and low 60s during the afternoon. West winds during the
morning provide mild conditions everywhere including the south coast
as well but temps will fall here into the 40s during the afternoon
as winds become wsw off the chill ocean waters.

Long term Sunday night through Friday
Highlights...

* cold front brings rain late Sunday night and Monday, with
snow across the higher inland terrain
* colder weather follows through mid week, then temperatures
look to rebound late next week
overview and model preferences...

love of the arctic vortex will be gradually settling toward n
quebec and labrador into the middle of next week, with longwave
trof developing across the ne. With a conduit to arctic air,
expecting a period of below normal conditions to linger into the
mid week time-frame. After which, a ridge currently locked to
the continental divide will begin to shift E and allow for both
warm advection and height rises, yielding a milder stretch
toward the weekend. Given there are reasonable agreement between
guidance throughout this period. Will use a consensus blend as
a baseline.

Details...

sun night into mon...

arctic cold front with reinforcing arctic air moves through
early mon. Noting a weak baroclinic leaf which could enhance
lift even in spite of the fact that the N tier is moisture
starved as a whole. Still enough moisture lift for a mix of
ra sn which will be dependent on both timing and whether the
bulk of the lift is ana-frontal or kata-frontal. Marginal bl sfc
temps suggest best risk for wintry precip is across the
interior. Otherwise, given lagging caa, temps will likely remain
near normal through mon.

Tue into wed...

period of below normal weather. H85 temps will dip to near
record low values (-12c to -15c) per SPC sounding climatology.

Although late march diurnal mixing should allow for bl depth to
exceed h85, this will still yield highs 5-10f below seasonal
normal values each day. With high pres near 1035mb settling
across the region, radiational cooling is likely during the
overnights allowing mins to fall into the teens to low 20s.

Thu and fri...

gradual moderation. With h85 temps returning to positive values
near +5c to +10c. Therefore, expecting highs to return to above
normal values. In fact, low 60s are possible away from the s
coast by Fri where downsloping can be maximized. Otherwise,
quiet wx continues thanks to remnants of high pres.

Next weekend...

low pres will be approaching linked to either pacific or arctic
wave or a hybrid thereof. It will likely be on the slow end
thanks to broad ridging in place across the E conus. Overall,
mainly warmer than normal conditions continue.

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

low - less than 30 percent.

Moderate - 30 to 60 percent.

High - greater than 60 percent.

Short term through Sunday ...

06z update ...

thru 12z ... High forecast confidence. Some uncertainty on exact
snow accumulations.

Mainly MVFR in snow showers before ending 09z to 12z from west
to east. Runways mainly wet except higher terrain terminals such
as korh where a coating up to 2 inches possible. West winds
gusting 30-40 kt with isolated g45 kt.

After 12z ... High forecast confidence.

Any leftover MVFR at 12z quickly lifts improves toVFR by 15z
and dry weather prevails but gusty west winds continue 30-40 kt.

Tonight ... High confidence.

Vfr, dry and diminishing west winds.

Sunday ... High confidence.

Vfr, dry and modest west winds becoming southwest.

Kbos terminal... MVFR in snow thru about 09z then improving to
vfr by 12z.

Kbdl terminal... MVFR in snow thru about 09z then improving to
vfr by 12z.

High - greater than 60 percent.

Short term through Sunday ...

*** wnw gales continue today ***
today ... Wnw gales along with vsbys 1-3 nm in snow mainly before
sunrise, then moving offshore. 982 mb low along the maine coast is
the culprit for the gale force winds.

Tonight ... Gale center exits thru the maritimes resulting in sub-
gale force winds across the southern new england waters. Expect west
winds 20-30 kt. Dry weather and good vsby.

Sunday ... High pres off the mid atlc coast supports a modest west
wind becoming wsw in the afternoon. Dry weather and good vsby.

Outlook Sunday night through Wednesday ...

Sunday night into Monday: winds less than 25 kt. Seas locally
approaching 5 ft. Chance of rain showers. Local visibility 1 to
3 nm.

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