Synopsis
High pressure over the mid atlantic states provides dry but much
milder temperatures this afternoon. However a trend toward cooler
weather arrives Monday as a dry cold front sweeps across the region.

Dry weather prevails much of next week with chilly weather tue
gradually moderating as the week progresses.

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

short wave ridging across the region and associated 1026 mb high
pressure over the mid atlc provides dry weather across southern new
england today. However low level WAA commences ahead of approaching
cold front from the north this afternoon. This results in 925 mb
temps warming from about -1c early this morning to +5c this
afternoon. Model soundings indicate blyr mixing up to about 900 mb.

This combined with abundant sunshine and wnw winds becoming wsw this
afternoon will support highs in the mid to upper 50s. Even a low
prob some locations away from the south coast briefly touch 60!
quite the difference from Saturday's blustery conditions. Coolest
temps this afternoon along and near the south coast with highs in
the low 50s early this afternoon then falling into the 40s as winds
shift to the SW off the chilly ocean waters.

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

cold front slowly sags southward to near the south coast by sunrise
Monday. Modest lift associated with short wave trough and attending
cold front but model cross sections reveal lots of dry air below 10
kft. Thus not expecting much than a spot shower or sprinkle second
half of the night. Most locations remain dry. Not as cold as
previous nights given prefrontal airmass, with lows mainly in the
30s.

Monday ...

cold front along or near the south coast at sunrise. As mentioned
above lots of dry air below 10 kft. Thus just expecting an abundance
of mid clouds with just the low risk of a spot morning shower or
sprinkle. Otherwise front moves offshore with sunshine developing
from north to south. Core of cold air lags and holds off until mon
night into tue. Thus seasonable temps Monday with highs 45-50.

Long term Monday night through Saturday
* dry through the week with high pressure building over the region
* colder weather through mid week, then temperatures look to
rebound late next week
overview and model preferences...

overall, noting fairly good agreement between both ensemble and
operational guidance with the 24.00z guidance update. The only
caveat, unsurprisingly, is toward the end of the 7 day period,
dealing with two separate waves, one from the pacific, the other
moving out of NW canada. As such, there remains timing, and
strength differences regarding low pres and attendant frontal
passage for late next weekend. Overall, a consensus blend will
be used given the agreement early, and the uncertainty late, to
take into account differences.

Mon night into wed...

coldest stretch of the long term. Deep cutoff settles across
quebec and labrador, allowing h85 temps to drop near seasonal
record lows per SPC sounding climatology. This range is general
-14c to -16c on Tue which should limit highs to the upper 30s
and low 40s. Milder wed, closer to seasonal normals thanks to
mixing likely exceeding h85. Overnight mins coldest Tue and wed
nights as high pres crests, yielding good setup for radiational
cooling.

Thu and fri...

more spring like as h85 temps approach 1 std deviation above
normal, or around +5c to +7c. This should allow highs Thu to
move into the upper 40s to mid 50s and potentially approaching
60f by fri. Dry wx continues under high pres influence even as
modest mid lvl warm advection occurs. One fly in the ointment,
will be sea breezes given light sfc flow and cool ssts in the
40s. So coastal areas likely remain cooler.

Next weekend...

will be watching the gradual approach of low pres and attendant
cold front. Given there is at least a loose link to subtropical
moisture, anticipate there will be a period of precipitation,
but timing remains somewhat uncertain. Mild conditions continue
until this frontal passage.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
