Another round of showers and embedded thunderstorms impact the
region this morning into early this afternoon, focused across
rhode island and southeast massachusetts. Lingering showers are
expected tonight into early Wednesday across the southeast new
england coast. Mostly dry, seasonable weather late week into
the weekend, with a return of more substantial heat and humidity
early next week. Potential wash out of the mugginess late next

Near term until 6 pm this evening
* highlights ...

- flash flood watch into early afternoon across ri SE ma
* discussion (7 am update, no major changes) ...

the main issue will be another batch of heavy showers and embedded
thunderstorms expected to impact portions of ri and SE ma this
morning. This activity may linger into early afternoon across the
cape nantucket. We did go ahead and issue a flash flood watch
into early afternoon for this region, which we will discuss in
greater detail below.

A surface boundary was draped near the south coast very early this
morning. At the same time, another wave of low pressure was lifting
northeast along the boundary to our southwest. This should keep the
boundary in the same general vicinity for much of the morning, as
the wave rides along it. Pwats of 2+ inches along with unusually
strong forcing for this time of year, will bring the potential for
localized pockets of torrential rainfall across ri SE ma this morning
into early afternoon. Model QPF is all over the place and may be
too far north given convective feedback issues. So while there is
uncertainty, enough parameters are in place to warrant a flash
flood watch across ri and SE ma. The main threat will be this
morning, but may linger into the early afternoon across the cape
islands. Again, this is a result of high pwats, a boundary in the
vicinity with unusually strong forcing for this time of year. Across
the rest of the region, plenty of showers expected this morning but
given less forcing do not expect any flooding issues.

Severe weather is not expected for the vast majority of the region
this morning early afternoon given limited instability. However,
we can not rule out a low risk across the CAPE islands depending
on where the warm front and triple point setup.

By mid afternoon, the steady showers will have exited the cape
islands. However, clouds skies a few spot showers will remain
possible. Highs will only reach the upper 60s to lower 70s with
a bit of a northeast breeze across the southeast new england coast.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 am Wednesday

the cold front will be well south of our region tonight. There
will be another wave of low pressure, but this will track
further southeast then this morning s. So the bulk of the
showers will be confined to the southeast new england coast,
particularly the CAPE islands. Elsewhere, think dry weather is
on tap for tonight except for a spot shower or two. Low
temperatures will range from the upper 50s to the middle 60s.

Long term Wednesday through Monday
* highlights ...

- coastal rains lingering Wednesday
- overall dry and seasonable late week into the weekend
- build up heat and humidity early next week
- potential late week washout of the mugginess
* overview ...

brief relief, but summer heat will return. The four-corners monsoon
ridge persisting as the N pacific pattern oscillates emphasized by
positive wpo epo pna trends signaling an onshore fast N pacific
jet squeezed between ak low N of a NE pacific high. Diagnosing h85
temperatures, return of warmer than average conditions aloft mixing
down to the surface by the end of july. Conveyor belt motions from
the mild pacific and hot desert SW conus, trends coinciding with cpc
6-10 8-14 day outlooks. For now, lingering h5 trof deamplifying
through the week. Seasonable, comfortable conditions initially, a
gradual return of heat and humidity while monitoring for upstream
weak wave impulses through the mid-latitude near-flat flow into the
end of july. Some isolated to scattered shower chances but the over-
all pattern looking dry with the absence of more potent mid to upper
level synoptics (like that presently). Break down the details below.

* details ...

Wednesday ...

coastal rains lingering. Mid-upper trof and accompanying synoptics
slow to lift up against the N atlantic ridge bermuda high. Gradual
deamplification as warmer air higher heights prevail out ahead of
additional mid-latitude energy through an evolving flattening flow.

Chance to likely pops further SE closer to the weak wave low along
the now offshore cold front beneath h3 jet dynamics aloft. Cooler
airmass aloft while drier air entrenching at the surface, lean with
seasonable temperatures around the low 80s, however 2m temperatures
expected to be somewhat dependent on cloud cover. Warmest conditions
look to occur over W areas of the ct river valley. Light N W winds
despite the offshore cold front, possibility of sea-breezes along
the coast.

Thursday into the weekend ...

dry, seasonable conditions, however can't rule out an isolated spot
shower. Despite drier conditions with low to mid level low thetae,
favorable lapse rates along with very weak mid level impulses, with
anabatic flow along the high terrain, can't rule out a spot shower.

The better chance Friday and Saturday, berkshires preferred, however
light winds, can't rule out activity along midday sea-breezes. Low
confidence as there are signals suggesting prevailing subsidence.

Heat and humidity gradually rebounding throughout as we see return s
flow late.

Early next week ...

heat and humidity continuing. Subsidence ridge prevailing between
upstream synoptics up against tropical energy creeping n. May not be
till the end of the week that we'll wash out the mugginess with a
sweeping cold front. More potent synoptics can only be emphasized if
energy is downsheared out of canada ahead of re-emerging synoptics
over the gulf of ak. Low confidence forecast.

Moderate - 30 to 60 percent.

High - greater than 60 percent.

Short term through tonight ... High confidence.


northeast wind gusts of 20 to 25 knots expected behind the wave
of low pressure this morning. This will also result in 3 to 6
foot seas building across many open waters and SCA headlines are
in effect for many of our waters. The other issue will be heavy
showers and embedded thunderstorms through early afternoon. A
few of the storms may be strong across our southern waters and a
waterspout can not be ruled out.


ne wind gusts will diminish as pressure gradient weakens. However,
we will need to keep small craft headlines in effect for our
southern waters as a result of lingering seas.

Outlook Wednesday through Saturday ... High confidence.

Tuesday: winds less than 25 kt. Seas up to 5 ft. Widespread
rain showers, scattered thunderstorms, patchy fog. Areas of
visibility 1 to 3 nm.

Tuesday night: winds less than 25 kt. Areas of seas approaching
5 ft. Chance of rain showers, patchy fog.

Wednesday: winds less than 25 kt. Areas of seas approaching
5 ft. Chance of rain showers.

Wednesday night: winds less than 25 kt. Areas of seas
approaching 5 ft.

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

Thursday night through Saturday: winds less than 25 kt.
