Synopsis
A cold front across the forecast area will exit into southern
new england tonight before stalling. High pressure will build by
to our north overnight through Sunday and provide some clearing
mainly to northern sections of new england. Low pressure will
approach from the southwest later Sunday night and for Monday
and will deliver cooler temperatures and the likelihood of rain.

Conditions will gradually improve by Tuesday night and
Wednesday as high pressure moves in.

Near term through tonight
At 18z the cold front extended from mid coast maine westward
through central new hampshire and into upstate new york. This
boundary continues to inch southward and will provide a weak
focus for widely scattered convection through early evening. The
nws doppler radar mosaic has showed some widely scattered
echoes over the past few hours and expect that to continue.

The boundary will finally settle into southern new england and
long island sound by morning before stalling. Clearing should be
confined to northern areas... As the remainder of the region
remains on the northern periphery of the high and mid cloud
shield.

Short term Sunday through Sunday night
On Sunday... The northeast synoptic flow between the surface
high over eastern canada and the stalled front to our south will
gradually become more easterly. Much of the area will remain on
the northern periphery of the high cloud shield from the stalled
baroclinic zone and those clouds and the onshore flow will
limit highs to the mid 70s to lower 80s. It should be a dry day
with comfortable humidity levels.

Sunday night... Thicker clouds will gradually spread north and
east in developing warm air advection ahead of approaching
shortwave impulse and associated surface reflection. Showers
should gradually spread north and east in the predawn hours and
reach all but our far northern and eastern maine zones by
morning.

Long term Monday through Friday
A temporary pattern shift will occur, with cooler and more raw
conditions developing for the beginning of the work week next
week. Some much needed rainfall may finally reach the coastline
which has missed out on much of the convection during the past
month or so do to cooling onshore breezes. Upslope conditions
may allow for locally heavy rainfall in the mountains.

Temperatures to begin the week well below normal with widespread
60s for daytime highs. Details are below.

A significant upper level trough for mid to late july swings
east and into new england on Monday. This will trigger
cyclogenesis along the south coast of massachusetts during the
day. This will provide a cool and raw northeast flow over the
region. Low cloud cover will keep readings in the 60s over many
areas, especially near and along the coastline. Showers will
break out. The atmosphere will remain fairly stable at the
surface, but instability aloft may be sufficient for a few
embedded thunderstorms.

With high precipitable water values and the likelihood of
showers throughout the day, there may be some pockets of locally
heavy rainfall. As the showers and isolated storms continue
Monday night, the threat of the possibility of localized
flooding will be on the increase, mainly in favorable upslope
areas where persistent heavy showers are a possibility.

By Tuesday, the surface low will begin to exit to the east
towards the canadian maritimes near halifax nova scotia. With a
wind shift, most of the showers will exit the region over
southern areas. However, the h7 and h5 low will remain over the
region, allowing an easterly upslope flow to continue over the
mountains. This will allow for additional showers across the
higher terrain during the day.

All areas finally begin to have drier air advect into the region
Wednesday as the upper level trough shifts to the east and a
ridge of high pressure builds into the region.

Yet another cold front will approach the region on Thursday,
before crossing off the coastline by Friday. This will add a few
more scattered showers and perhaps a thunderstorm during the
period.

Aviation 18z Saturday through Thursday
Short term through Sunday night ...VFR tonight and Sunday with
river valley stratus and fog psb late tonight. Areas of MVFR
developing aft 05z Mon in -shra.

Long term... Monday will continue to lower into ifr conditions
as log pressure develops. There may be an embedded thunderstorm.

Ifr conditions will likely persist throughout the night
especially along the coast Monday night. Conditions will
improve on Tuesday with mostly mountain shower activity and
increasing ceilings to the south. High pressure builds back in
for Wednesday.

Marine
Short term through Sunday night ... Ne flow will develop behind
a cold front tonight and could briefly approach small craft at
times in gusts outside the bays overnight into Sunday.

Long term... A low will develop south of new england through
Monday. This will bring increasing easterly winds to the waters
with small craft conditions potentially during the day on
Monday. A strong low level jet may result in a few gusts over
sca thresholds in regions of heavy showers. High pressure will
move in for Wednesday with subsiding winds and seas.
