Synopsis
Low pressure will push northeast from the mid atlantic coast,
crossing the region tonight. This will bring locally heavy
downpours may result in some brief poor drainage street flooding
and possibly an isolated thunderstorm or two. Seasonably mild
temperatures will follow for the remainder of the week with
mainly dry weather other than a period of showers Friday. A cool
down will occur Saturday night and Sunday, but this will be
short lived as unseasonably warm temperatures are in store for
the region by the middle of next week.

Near term until 6 am Thursday morning
7 pm update...

convective showers with locally heavy rain continue to lift
north across eastern half of new england. Activity is located
along the nose of the low level jet. In addition, still can't
rule out an isold t-storm as elevated instability is present.

As the axis of the low level jet shifts to the east main focus
for heavy rain will gradually shift offshore after midnight.

Main impact will be localized nuisance poor drainage street
flooding in areas of heavy rain. Gusty southerly winds SE new
eng this evening will diminish late this evening.

Other concern for tonight is dense fog as some mid level drying
moves in tonight while low levels remain saturated. Low vsbys
have developed over southern ri where we will issue a dense fog
advisory through tonight. Plenty of low level moisture present
and advisory may need to be expanded along the rest of the south
coast.

Previous discussion...

surface low still in the vicinity with digging upper level
trough approaching from the west. The evening will start off
with a dry weather trend as mid-level dry slot pushes through.

Still quite saturated as the low levels so fog and drizzle may
be an issue. As the upper level low rotates through, the mid and
upper levels begin to saturated and there could be a
redevelopment in strong showers moving through sne. Best timing
is between 3-9z as strong mid-level omega pushes through. The
east coast of ma has the best shot of seeing the strong
downpours. Still cannot rule out the thunder potential as rap
data has several hundred julep of MUCAPE and showalters dropping
below 0c. Heavy rainfall will be the main threat as well as
gusty winds, especially along the passing cold front.

Ahead of the passage of the front, patchy dense fog is possible
across the region. This is due to the saturated low level moisture
as well as weak pressure gradient ahead of the fropa. Both the hrrr-
tl and the narre indicated high probs that visibilities will drop
at or below a mile, with some potential for less than 1 4 mi.

Locations along long island are starting to drop below 1 2 mile, but
still see coastal above 1-2 miles. So confidence isn't quite high to
issue a dense fog adv at this time.

Short term 6 am Thursday morning through 6 pm Thursday
Thursday...

upper level low will begin to pivot out of the region during the day
on Thursday. Still some lingering moisture in the mid-levels with
steep lapse rates which will yield to sct showers in the morning.

Deep layer moisture will push northward towards maine resulting in
low precip chances by the afternoon hours. Still expect sct to
broken clouds but overall trend will be dry by sunset.

Gusty wnw flow expected along as the mid level shortwave passes
through. Steep lapse rates and downsloping flow will result in good
mixing to near 850mb. Expect wind gusts to near 25-30 mph by the
afternoon as highs reach into the mid to upper 60s. Overall a
pleasant spring day.

Long term Thursday night through Wednesday
Highlights...

* a period of showers Fri afternoon evening
* scattered showers sat, mainly interior
* dry and cooler Sun then seasonably mild mon
* dry with a significant warming trend Tue wed
Friday...

southern stream shortwave will be lifting northward into sne during
the afternoon evening. Shortwave is deamplifying but modest low
level jet and pwat plume will bring a period of showers to much of
sne, especially afternoon into early evening. There may be a focus
for brief heavy showers and an isold t-storm across ri and SE ma
where some elevated instability is present along the nose of the low
level jet. Highs will range from the upper 50s to lower 60s.

Saturday...

next mid level shortwave and cold front approaches from the west.

This will lead to an increasing risk of sct showers, mainly across
central western ma and northern ct during the afternoon. Otherwise,
expect pt-mosunny skies in the coastal plain with increasing
afternoon clouds in western new eng. There is a low risk a few
showers could move into eastern new eng Sat night as the front moves
through. With pre-frontal SW flow, milder temps expected sat,
reaching mid 60s to near 70, except cooler along the south coast.

Sunday...

cooler post-frontal airmass as deep trough settles over the
northeast and 850 mb temps cool to around -4c. Temps will remain
mostly in the 50s, with a few locations topping out near 60 in ri
and eastern ma. Chilly night Sun night with lows in the 30s but
close to 30 across the typical colder locations. Frost headlines
may be needed where growing season has started, with greatest risk
across northern ct.

Monday through Wednesday...

a pattern change will occur next week as deep trough lifts out mon
and is replaced by building heights and mid level ridging through
the middle of the week. Monday will be the transition day with
seasonably mild temps after a cold start to the day. Then warming
mid level temps will result in temps reaching into the 70s Tue with
potential for some lower 80s wed. But SW flow will result in cooler
temps along the south coast.
