Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Boston/Norton MA 1009 PM EDT Sun Apr 14 2024

SYNOPSIS
Showers end overnight, along with gradual clearing. Dry and seasonably mild Monday through Wednesday. Another unsettled pattern develops late this week, with near normal temperatures and a few chances for rain Thursday into next weekend.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM MONDAY MORNING/
1005 PM Update:

Low pressure near the Poconos in northeast PA will continue to ride ENE along an elongated frontal boundary from its center northeastward into Southern New England through late tonight.
This should gradually shift the effective frontal boundary southward into the southern waters as time goes on tonight.
Though we had a few lightning strikes in CT a few hours ago, the bulk of convective activity has remained well to the southwest.
Radar showing a fractured line of scattered showers located just south of the Route 2 corridor, which will slowly progress southeast toward the southern coastal waters thru midnight.
That will likely be the extent of it though over much of the land with dry weather for the 2nd half of the overnight, however it is possible we could see a rogue, garden-variety TS develop over the southern waters (perhaps near MVY/ACK?) early overnight per the HRRR and 18z/14th NAM-3km guidance. Rain amts probably won't amount to much more than a tenth of an inch as showers should be passing and of generally light intensity.

Though the frontal boundary will be slowly sagging southward for the 2nd half of the night well into the waters, cloud cover could be a little slower to erode especially if the boundary slows down. Did bump cloud cover up somewhat across the southern half of Southern New England thru the pre-dawn hrs, essentially a slower erosion of cloud cover. Further inland though, most areas should trend mostly clear by overnight/pre-dawn period.

Previous Discussion...

A disorganized frontal wave will traverse over the Northeast this afternoon and evening with scattered showers and a perhaps a few thunderstorms. Latest SPC meso-analysis reveals no significant surface based CAPE over southern New England within the warm sector of the wave of low pressure moving through the region. However, steep mid-level lapse rates are contributing to elevated instability that could support a few rumbles of thunder across western MA/CT and possibly over some locations near the south coast this evening. Areas along and north of I-90 are forecast to be in the cool sector, thus not expecting any thunderstorm activity north of that mark. Any remaining showers and thunderstorms are forecast to clear to the south and east around or just before midnight. Thereafter we can expect gradual clearing with winds shifting to the west/northwest. Low temps bottom out in the low 40s across northwestern MA and mi to upper 40s elsewhere.

SHORT TERM /6 AM MONDAY MORNING THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/
Tomorrow

A dry surface cold front pushes through the region during the day tomorrow. This will support dry conditions and west/northwest winds throughout the day. Skies will be clear to start which will allow surface temps to warm to the upper 60s to near 70 in some locations by the mid-afternoon hours. After a sunny start, we will begin to see increasing diurnal cu during the afternoon thanks to steep low- level lapse rates from cooler air aloft. Overall a warm/dry afternoon. Warmest temps will be focused in the CT River Valley and over southeastern MA where downsloping from WNW winds should help temps over achieve.

Tomorrow Night

Very quiet tomorrow night. Clear skies and light west/northwest winds. There is some question as to whether or not the atmosphere decouples overnight. This will govern how far temperatures are able to fall with radiational cooling. Will have a better idea by tomorrow, but for now have leaned on a blend of CONSMOS and NBM for low temps in the low to mid 40s on Tuesday morning.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/
Highlights:

* Broad trough settled over the region for much of the upcoming week, with a brief period of mid level ridging in the Tuesday- Wednesday timeframe

* Near to above normal temperatures, with an unsettled pattern developing late this week

Based on the latest guidance suite, still have the greatest confidence in the forecast details into early Wednesday. After then, there is little consistency with the timing and amplitude of some synoptic features, leading to low confidence in the forecast details. Kept a broad period of unsettled weather from late Wednesday into Saturday, but not expecting this to be a total washout this entire time. Expecting it will be a couple more days before these details come into better focus. All that said, there has been a consistent signal for near to above normal temperatures through this portion of the forecast.

High pressure dominates our weather Tuesday into Wednesday.
Thinking we could get through most of Wednesday dry, especially across the eastern half of southern New England. Just a low risk for some showers during the afternoon farther west. More likely to see rainfall arrive some time Wednesday night into Thursday as a low pressure moves into the Great Lakes, with a secondary low pressure possibly developing toward the Mid Atlantic coast.
This should move offshore Friday, with a lingering cold front into Saturday. A large high pressure over the northern Plains states should become more of a factor in our weather some time Sunday.

Moisture is not particularly impressive, so not expecting a lot of rainfall during the second half of this week. This should be a good thing, by permitting area waterways a chance to drain further.

Forecaster Confidence Levels:

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

Tonight

Some showers and possible a rumble of thunder possible over the south coastal waters before midnight tonight. Otherwise, expect gusty southwest winds to diminish as winds shift to the west/northwest overnight. Sustained speeds fall to 5 to 10 knots by tomorrow morning with gusts less than 20 knots. Seas begin to subside but remain high enough to warrant Small Craft Advisory headlines for the outer marine zones.

Tomorrow and Tomorrow Night

Seas continue to subside to sub-Small Craft Advisory criteria by tomorrow evening. Otherwise, expect relatively quiet conditions over the coastal waters with modest 10-15 knot west/northwest winds.

Outlook /Tuesday through Friday/...

Tuesday: Winds less than 25 kt. Seas locally approaching 5 ft.

Tuesday Night through Wednesday: Winds less than 25 kt.
