Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Boston/Norton MA 628 PM EST Tue Dec 7 2021

SYNOPSIS. High pressure brings dry and seasonably chilly temperatures tonight. A fast moving disturbance will bring a period of snow showers and some very minor accumulations to parts of the region Wednesday evening. High pressure builds into the region Thursday, moving to the east Friday as a warm front approaches. Showers, gusty winds and unseasonably mild conditions are expected Saturday into Saturday evening as a strong cold front approaches from the west. The front moves through late Saturday night followed by blustery and cooler weather Sunday. High pressure builds south of New England early next week with dry and mild conditions.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM WEDNESDAY MORNING/. 625 PM update .

Mainly high clouds streaming across SNE this evening with lowering cigs overnight. Forecast on track.

Previous discussion .

A ridge of high pressure will bring dry weather with light winds tonight. Strung out shortwave energy to our west will result in abundance of mid and high level cloudiness streaming into our region from the west tonight, but it will remain dry. These mid & high clouds will likely keep temperatures from bottoming out to their full potential. Overall, expect low temperatures to still drop into the 20s to near 30. Those readings are seasonable for this time of year.

SHORT TERM /6 AM WEDNESDAY MORNING THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/. * A coating to 2 inches of snow possible Wednesday evening

Wednesday and Wednesday night .

Strung out shortwave energy coupled with some weak warm advection will result in a rather cloudy day on Wednesday. The forcing is rather weak; so other than a few passing rain and/or snow showers most of the daylight hours will end up dry. Ptype will likely be in the form of a few snow showers across the interior; but given the marginal boundary layer might be warm enough for a few rain showers. Again though any precipitation through Wednesday afternoon should be light/spotty with no snow accumulations anticipated.

The main threat for any minor snow accumulations will be after 4 or 5 pm on Wednesday until about midnight. A distant low pressure system will be intensifying well offshore, but upper level energy to our west may allow for an inverted trough feature to briefly setup. This is somewhat of a mesoscale feature and the various guidance has gone back and forth on whether it is able to really develop. Best chance for this appear to be east of the CT River Valley and especially across the eastern half of MA. That being said; we are only expecting a general coating to 2 inches of snow. In fact, given the marginal boundary layer along the coast; the best chance for 1-2 inches of snow may be across the Worcester Hills and into interior eastern MA.

There is a low risk that if we get a setup like the 12z NAM indicated; a very localized swath of 3-4 inches of snow would occur. However, it was much more robust with the inverted trough/forcing than the other guidance. And on the flip side of the coin; if this feature does not really setup it may be difficult for most areas to even get an inch.

Overall, a rather minor event but there certainly may be some snow covered roads/slippery spots developing Wednesday evening. Greatest risk for this will be the Worcester Hills and interior Eastern MA; given the marginal temperatures along the coast. Most of this activity should exit the region near or shortly after midnight. Low temperatures Wed night will generally be in the 20s to around 30.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. Highlights

* Dry and near seasonable Thursday, then milder Friday * Gusty winds and unseasonably mild Sat/Sat evening with showers and possibly a few t-storms * Blustery and cooler Sunday * Dry and milder early next week

Thursday into Friday .

Mid level trough axis will be well east of New Eng by 12z Thu with high pres building in from the west. Expect lots of sunshine and temps a few degrees below normal. A warm front approaches from the SW Thu nigh lifting north into SNE during Fri. Developing warm advection may bring a few snow showers to the interior Thu night into early Fri but any precip will be rather light. Otherwise, expect lots of cloud cover Friday and milder conditions with temps trending above normal.

Friday night into Saturday night .

A few showers possible Fri night as warm front lifts north into region at the nose of a developing low level jet. Warm sector airmass overspreads SNE Saturday with unseasonably mild conditions and scattered showers although not a washout as deeper moisture will be to the north and west. 925 mb temps 12-14C so highs should reach the 60s in most locations. Low level jet 60-70 kts develops late Sat/Sat evening across SE New Eng which may result in strong to potentially damaging wind gusts as temps may remain in the 60s in the evening ahead of the approaching cold front which will help to enhance mixing.

Robust mid level trough approaches Sat night with strong cold front moving across SNE late Sat night. Strong forcing for ascent within the right entrance region of a strong upper jet will result in a band of widespread showers moving across the region Sat night. Models are hinting at marginal instability so a fine line of convection with locally heavy rainfall, a few t-storms and strong winds could accompany the frontal passage Sat night. Sharp temp drop after the fropa late Sat night in strong cold advection.

Sunday into Tuesday .

Cold front will be moving offshore by 12z Sun with blustery and colder conditions. A slower fropa would result in showers lingering Sunday morning in the east. Otherwise, mid level trough will be moving through so expect broken strato-cu and can't rule out a shower although the column dries out significantly.

Zonal flow develops early next week with high pres building to the south so expect dry weather with milder temps returning Mon/Tue.

AVIATION /00Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. Low - less than 30 percent. Medium - 30 to 60 percent. High - greater than 60 percent.

00Z Update .

Tonight . High Confidence. VFR despite mid/high level cloudiness. Light NW winds.

Wednesday . High Confidence. Mainly VFR in the morning will give way to some MVFR conditions as the afternoon wears along. A few snow showers are possible, but the majority of the day will feature dry weather. Ptype might be mixed with or in the form of a few rain showers in the lower elevations. E winds 5-10 knots.

Wednesday night . Moderate Confidence. MVFR to briefly localized IFR conditions are possible during the evening with improvement overnight. A period of snow showers are expected Wednesday evening mainly east of the CT River and especially in eastern MA/RI. Any mixed precipitation should change to snow in most locales, but amounts will be light on the order of a coating to 2 inches. Most of the snow will have exited the region by 06z or so. Winds becoming NW at 5 to 15 knots.

KBOS TAF . High confidence in TAF.

KBDL TAF . High confidence in TAF.

Outlook /Thursday through Sunday/ .

Thursday: VFR. Breezy.

Thursday Night: Mainly VFR, with local IFR possible.

Friday: MVFR/IFR conditions possible. Slight chance SHRA, slight chance FZRA.

Friday Night: Mainly MVFR, with areas IFR possible. SHRA likely, slight chance FZRA.

Saturday through Saturday Night: Mainly MVFR, with areas IFR possible. Windy with local gusts up to 30 kt. SHRA likely.

Sunday: Mainly VFR, with local MVFR possible. Breezy. Slight chance SHRA.

MARINE. Forecaster Confidence Levels.

Low - less than 30 percent. Moderate - 30 to 60 percent. High - greater than 60 percent.

Tonight . High Confidence. High pressure building into the region will allow winds/seas to continue to subside. We continued small craft headlines for the evening in our southern outer-waters until left-over marginal 5 foot seas subside.

Wednesday and Wednesday night . High Confidence. Winds and seas will remain below small craft advisory thresholds during the day Wednesday. However, intensifying ocean storm will allow for strong NW small craft wind gusts to develop Wednesday night. In fact, may see a few wind gusts approach 35 knots in our eastern most waters. We will need small craft headlines for most of our open waters Wednesday night and there is even the low risk that brief Gale Headlines will be needed for our eastern most outer-waters.

Outlook /Thursday through Sunday/ .

Thursday: Low risk for Small Craft Advisory winds with gusts up to 25 kt. Local rough seas.

Thursday Night: Winds less than 25 kt. Areas of seas approaching 5 ft.

Friday: Winds less than 25 kt. Areas of seas approaching 5 ft. Slight chance of rain showers.

Friday Night: Winds less than 25 kt. Areas of seas approaching 5 ft. Rain showers likely.

Saturday: Moderate risk for Small Craft Advisory winds with gusts up to 30 kt. Areas of rough seas. Rain showers likely.

Saturday Night: Strong winds with local gusts up to 30 kt. Rough seas up to 12 ft. Rain showers likely.

Sunday: Moderate risk for Small Craft Advisory winds with gusts up to 25 kt. Rough seas up to 12 ft. Chance of rain showers.

BOX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CT . None. MA . None. RI . None. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory until 10 PM EST this evening for ANZ254>256.
