Synopsis
Scattered thunderstorms will become more numerous this weekend
as a front stalls in the area. The front will linger offshore
early next week, with a potential for unsettled weather. A
tropical low may track north along the front and pass offshore
early next week, maintaining a chance of significant rain.

Update
Rainfall probability reductions are in order for the evening
update. NHC has raised formation chance to 50 percent of
tropical low pressure off andros island becoming tropical storm
strength through 5 days.

Near term through Friday night
Convection simmering down, and action lifting north, will reduce
pop values for the overnight, over land, isolated convection
may be seen in early morning over the water. Very mild lows
compared to climate 74-76 inland 77-79 near the coast into
daybreak Friday. After rainfall today, and lighter nocturnal
wind inland, patches of fog may develop after 3 am, near river
basins another prone area. Widespread coverage is not expected.

Friday starts out with dry weather, with a trend then later in
the day toward wetter conditions from north to south as a
frontal boundary approaches from the north and mid-level energy
increases in the weakly cyclonic flow aloft. Note that guidance
may likely again be over-doing precip during the daytime hours,
with the better chances of rain holding off until the evening
and nighttime hours (50-70% pops northern half of area). Held
pops to mainly 30-40% during the day with the best moisture and
lift still off to the north. No severe weather or flooding
anticipated. High temps will range from the mid 80s right at the
coast to low 90s inland, with heat indices peaking around 100.

Short term Saturday through Sunday night
Cold front moving into the area early Sat will briefly stall in the
region, before shifting just offshore Sun and Sun night. Shallow 5h
trough pushing the front into the area slides off the new england
coast Sat into sun, the trough leave the front laying under
progressive mid-level flow. Front slowly sags south Sun into sun
night as surface and mid-level high build in from the north. Deep
moisture, convergence, dewpoints in the low to mid 70s and diurnal
heating, in spite of cloud cover, will all lead to widespread
coverage of showers and thunderstorms Sat and Sat night. Although
the front shifts off the coast early sun, widespread showers and
thunderstorms will continue sun. Weak wave along the front coupled
with abundance of deep moisture will once again yield plenty of
showers, although thunderstorms may be a little more isolated in
nature. Storm motion both days, but especially sun, and deep warm
cloud layer do suggest at least some potential for flood threat with
any persistent storms that develop. Rainfall chances decrease sun
night as the wave starts slowly moving northeast, weakening dynamics
and upward motion. Hard to say for sure. Highs will run below climo
sat and Sun with lows running a little above climo both nights.

Long term Monday through Thursday
Front lingers offshore through the middle of next week. Despite low
level northeast flow and mid-level westerly flow, moisture aloft
remains plentiful. Shower and thunderstorm chances will be highest
mon as wave low moves up the coast. Medium range guidance continues
to show a low passing off the coast tue, however the nature and
strength of this low remains in questions. At this point tropical or
subtropical impacts seem unlikely given its limited strength and
track. More seasonable conditions Tue through Thu with diurnal
convection along the piedmont trough and sea breeze each day.

-low confidence concerning wave low passing off the coast next
week.

-potential for localized flooding Mon with storm motion under 5
kt and deep warm cloud layer.

-typical summer time afternoon evening showers and
thunderstorms Tue through thu
-below climo highs on mon, running slightly above climo tue
through thu. Lows above climo.

Aviation 02z Friday through Tuesday
PredominantlyVFR conditions continue into tomorrow. Scattered
high clouds tonight and overnight from this afternoon's
convection in the region. No fog concerns due to continued
elevated overnight winds. Tomorrow, scattered cumulus clouds
around 5kft with diurnal heating. Chance of thunderstorms in the
afternoon evening tomorrow, mainly away from the coast. Rain
chances inland begin to increase at tail end of TAF period due
to approaching cold front from the north. South-southwest winds
continue to persist around 5-10 kts.

Extended... MainlyVFR thru Fri with brief MVFR ifr periods each
day due to aftn evening convection and fog and or stratus
around daybreak. A cold front will drop south and stall across
the region late Fri thru tue. This will lead to an increase in
tsra coverage with MVFR ifr conditions possible at any time of
the day or night.

Marine
No headlines necessary with this forecast package as bermuda high
pressure remains offshore and a cold front slowly approaches from
the north. Expect S SW winds of 10-15 kt through Friday night, up to
15-20 kt during the afternoon early evening hours. Seas 2-3 ft,
mainly consisting of a 4-5 second ssw 2-3 ft wind wave and a 10
second SE 1-2 ft swell.

Light and variable wind field Sat into Sun as front moves into the
area then briefly stalls. Front does push south and east of the
waters early Sun with northeast flow developing as high builds in
from the north. Wave moving up the stalled boundary has potential to
enhance wind field next week, although confidence is low. Northeast
flow Sun night through Mon night will be 10 to 15 kt. Wave low exits
by Tue with weak southerly flow developing across the waters. Seas 2
ft or less Sat into Sun will start building as northeast flow
increases. Southerly swell around 10 seconds Sat takes a back seat
to developing 3 ft northeast wind wave around 5 seconds later sun
which will persist through tue.
