Synopsis
After a cold start early this morning, much milder weather returns
this afternoon into Saturday along with gusty winds along the coast.

Temperature swings roll on through the following week. Warm ups out
ahead of sweeping cold fronts associated with light showery weather
and breezy conditions, frost freeze conditions following as high
pressure builds across the region.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
7 am update (no major changes to the forecast)...

after a widespread freeze in many locations early this morning,
high pressure will move off the mid atlantic coast today. The
result will be a milder SW flow of air back into our region.

Despite the cold start, plenty of sunshine and rapidly warming mid
level temperatures will allow for a nice recovery by afternoon. H85
temperatures actually rise to between +8c and +10c by late in the
day. Given the cold start and lowering october Sun angle this will
not be completely realized at the surface. Nonetheless, expect a
nice afternoon with many locations seeing highs recover into the
lower 60s. The only issue will be gusty southwest winds of 20 to
30 mph that develop this afternoon along the coastal plain, strongest
of those across the CAPE islands.

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

approaching shortwave will induce a fairly strong southwest low level
jet of 35 to 45 knots. This will keep the boundary layer mixed tonight
resulting in much milder temperatures. Lows will only drop into the
upper 40s to the lower 50s in many locales this evening, followed
by rising temperatures along the coastal plain with the gusty winds.

In fact... We did hoist a wind advisory for the CAPE islands. Sst
still 60+ across much of our southern waters which should allow the
strong low level jet to mix down at times... Resulting in southwest
wind gusts of 35 to 40 knots.

We also expect skies to become mostly cloudy overnight as low level
moisture increases ahead of the shortwave. A few showers should
also develop... Particularly across the far southeast new england
coast on the nose of the LLJ and where the moisture is deeper. Far
from a washout though as much of the night will feature dry weather.

Saturday...

any left over showers should exit the region by mid to late morning
with the departing shortwave. Will continue the wind advisory into
the late morning hours across the CAPE islands... But should see wind
diminish behind shortwave. In fact... With partial sunshine and a
mild start high temperatures should soar well into the 60s across
many locations. Dry weather should dominate after any left over
showers exit the region by mid to late morning. However... An
approaching strong cold front may result in a few more showers
developing late in the afternoon early evening across our western
zones.

Long term Saturday night through Thursday
* highlights...

- rolling temperature trend through midweek
- with any frontal passages, expect showery weather, breezy winds
- in wake, frost freeze conditions possible
* overview...

rolling temperature trend. NE atlantic block downstream of a eastern
n america h5 preferred trof and western N america split-flow regime,
as N pacific energy ejects e, +pna reloads in a +ao environment, and
we see shots of cold, canadian air at times through the weekend into
the early-half of next week. Cross-polar flow, greater
baroclinicity, local wind enhancement associated along sweeping
cold fronts. Mainly continental airmass association, expecting
some showery weather, a few wet snowflakes possible. Warmer
rebounds in-between thanks to the upstream s-branch of
aforementioned split-flow.

But a change is in the air. Most N hemisphere open, progressive, n
pacific jet MAX rounds the E hemisphere into the W conus. Weakened
epo, W CONUS split-flow and E CONUS h5 trof nudged downstream. The
pattern opens briefly, but a wary eye on energy ejecting e, riding
over W CONUS high terrain and obtaining lee cyclogenesis towards the
e CONUS into late october. Models continue to hint on possible storm
development, however an uncertain reality given deterministic and
ensemble model spread, low confidence forecast, unable to make any
outcome determination.

Gfs canadian continues to be progressive over ec ecens. Ukmet
somewhere in-between. The split in forecast guidance mid to late
week. Consensus preference early, trend with greater ec weighting
late week.

* discussion...

Saturday night into Sunday ... Cold air advection, steepening lapse
rates, mid-level trailing vortmax. With lingering column moisture,
in addition to breezy NW winds held below wind advisory criteria, 30
to 35 mph, associated with pressure rises, can't rule out scattered
rain snow showers. High outcome confidence over N W high terrain.

Little to no accumulation.

Sunday night ... Stray from coldest MOS guidance but it'll still be
chilly. Building surface ridge but still good NW flow aloft aligned
with prevailing h5 trof, energy continually streaming through. Can't
rule out mid-level cloud decks and mix down of winds, so not looking
like an ideal cold environment. Dry.

Monday through Tuesday ... Chilly and dry Monday, return warmer air
and some possible showery weather courtesy of low-level isentropic
ascent along a lifting warm front. Rebound warmer temperatures with
chance pops. Light outcomes, hardly a washout given more continental
airmass association.

Wednesday into Thursday ... Low confidence forecast, but if leaning
with ec ecens, linger a stalled frontal boundary longer in vicinity
while holding temperatures at or slightly below seasonable beneath a
near-zonal environment. Some clouds and light showers at times. A
sharper cold front not until late going into Friday.

Friday onward ... Little to no confidence. Continued exacerbated
spread among deterministic ensemble models. Again, watching energy
ejecting E from h3 N pacific speed MAX into W conus. How it evolves
e remains highly uncertain, outcomes widely unknown.

Aviation 12z Friday through Tuesday
Forecaster confidence levels...

low - less than 30 percent.

Moderate - 30 to 60 percent.

High - greater than 60 percent.

Short term through Saturday ... High confidence.

Today...

vfr. Few-sct 050-060. SW gusts 20-30 kts developing by afternoon
across coastal plain terminals. Strongest gusts across cape
islands.

Tonight...

vfr becoming MVFR after midnight. Continued gusty 35-40 kt sw
winds over the CAPE islands. Few shra possible after midnight,
greatest chance also over the CAPE islands.

Saturday...

any lower ceilings should improve to mainlyVFR by late morning
early afternoon. Gusty SW winds along the coastal plain should
diminish some during the afternoon.

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

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

Outlook Saturday night through Tuesday ...

Marine
Forecaster confidence levels...

low - less than 30 percent.

Moderate - 30 to 60 percent.

High - greater than 60 percent.

Short term through Saturday ... High confidence.

Today...

sw wind gusts increase to between 20 and 30 knots by afternoon
across the waters ahead of an approaching shortwave.

Tonight and Saturday...

strong SW low level jet developing coupled with the relatively
mild ocean will allow 30 to 40 knot wind gusts over most waters
tonight into Sat morning. Gale warnings posted for all waters
except small craft headlines for boston harbor narragansett bay.

Long southwest fetch should allow seas to build to between 6
and 9 feet across our southern waters. The winds should begin to
diminish Saturday afternoon as the core of the low level jet
lifts northeast of our region.

Outlook Saturday night through Tuesday ...

Saturday: low risk for gale force winds with gusts up to 40 kt.

Areas of rough seas. Chance of rain showers.

Saturday night: low risk for small craft advisory winds with
gusts up to 25 kt. Local rough seas. Slight chance of rain
showers.

Sunday: strong winds with local gusts up to 30 kt. Areas of
rough seas. Slight chance of rain showers.

Sunday night: moderate risk for small craft advisory winds with
areas of gusts up to 30 kt. Local rough seas.

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

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

Tuesday: low risk for small craft advisory winds with gusts up
to 25 kt. Areas of rough seas. Slight chance of rain showers.
