SYNOPSIS.

It will be hot again today, but a bit less humid. Scattered showers and thunderstorms return on Monday afternoon and Tuesday. High pressure then brings fair weather for Wednesday and possibly Thursday. Scattered showers and thunderstorms return on Friday and Saturday.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THIS MORNING/.

140 AM Update .

Very muggy early this morning with temperatures still in the lower to middle 70s. Although it was dry, low clouds covered much of the region with patchy fog along the south coast. We actually should see low clouds and fog scatter out in many locations in the next several hours. This a result of veering low level winds allowing a little bit of drier air to mix down.

SHORT TERM /6 AM THIS MORNING THROUGH 6 PM MONDAY/.

230 PM Update:

Sunday:

Shortwave trough will be moving into northern New England on Sunday. A related fairly weak surface low will move through the St. Lawrence Valley, with troughing extending down into northwestern MA and the Berkshires. High pressure should maintain itself over southeastern New England.

Sunday should be another very warm day and while dewpoints are lower it will still feel quite muggy again. Once the sun comes out to erode any residual stratus from overnight, looking at mostly sunny conditions and it should also become fairly breezy for a typical mid- July day. Gusts to 25 mph not out of the question with strong heating allowing for mixing to occur. A few higher res models simulate isolated to widely scattered thunderstorms near the weak trough axis over northwest into north-central MA. Better large-scale support for storms looks north of our area, instability looks to be less than prior days due to slightly lower dewpoints, weak lift/convergence and dry air in the mid-levels should keep most storms fairly isolated if any develop at all. Wouldn't necessarily cancel any plans but certainly keep an eye to the sky if in towns north and west of a Worcester to Springfield line. Highs will again top out in the lower 90s in the interior, though slightly lower dewpoints due to mixing and some downsloping should keep heat indices from reaching Advisory levels.

Sunday Night:

Any thunderstorms which may have developed across western into north- central MA should dissipate after sunset. A brief period of shortwave ridging and dry weather then resumes for most of the overnight. However late in the overnight into the pre-dawn hours, 500 mb heights again start to fall as the next shortwave trough moves through east-central PA into southern NY. While low-levels are stable, seasonably-strong 850-500 mb WSW flow advects in some modest elevated instability into early Monday morning across northern CT, northwest RI into western and central MA (Showalter indices -1 to -2 units, associated with 6-6.5 C/km 700-500 mb lapse rates). Though timing remains a question - it could be more focused into Monday morning as opposed to very late Sunday night - the potential exists for early-morning thunderstorms in the Springfield-Hartford to Worcester corridor. While it is the exception and not the rule, an upper-end outcome could feature thunderstorms with small sub-severe hail given MUCAPEs increasing to around 500-900 J/kg. Otherwise, still a muggy evening ahead with lows in the upper 60s to lower 70s.

LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/.

Big Picture .

High pressure in control coast-to-coast across the Southern USA. One trough moves across New England Monday and Tuesday, followed by a weak ridge Wednesday. Another shortwave trough based in Canada moves across the Nrn Tier of the USA, crossing New England Thursday or Friday.

Height contours at 500-mb, reflecting the deep layer, are forecast near normal Monday-Tuesday, trending above normal the remainder of the week. Surface high pressure passing north of the region midweek may generate a low-level easterly flow that would buffer the warming trend, but the high pressure moves east and the surface flow returns to a west-southwest direction late in the week.

Mass fields are similar through Thursday morning, then show differences in handling the late week trough. Confidence is moderate- high through Thursday, then lower confidence Friday-Saturday.

Daily details .

Monday-Tuesday .

A leading shortwave trough sweeps across Srn New England Monday, supporting a surface cold front that crosses the region late in the day or evening. An associated 100-kt jet in the southwest upper flow moves across New England with Srn New England under the right entrance region of the jet, supporting lift. The airmass will be unstable with LI of -3 to -5 and CAPE of 1000-1500 J/Kg. And 0-3 Km Helicity will be around 100. Expect showers and scattered t-storms with the front. PW values are forecast around 1.9 inches, so local downpours are also expected.

The main trough axis sweeps overhead late Monday night and Tuesday, cooling temps at 500 mb by 2-3C from Monday. CAPE of 500 J and LI of minus 1 to minus 2 extend south into Eastern MA during Tuesday. This may be enough to generate scattered showers/thunder Tuesday, with most favorable conditions in Eastern MA. PW values diminish to 1.3 inches, so less favorable for downpours.

Wednesday-Thursday .

High pressure builds south from Quebec, and combined with a shortwave upper ridge this should bring rain-free weather and lower dew points. The surface high remains centered to our north, which suggests an east flow over the region and cooler temperatures along the eastern coast.

Friday-Saturday .

The next shortwave approaches from the Great Lakes, but timing remains in question due to the variety of model timings. Expect increasing instability with LI falling to near -5 by Saturday and CAPE increasing to near 2000 J/Kg. PW values climb to 2 inches. The question remains whether the convection reaches Srn New England Friday, or waits until Saturday. When it arrives, expect scattered showers and thunder, with local downpours.

AVIATION /06Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Forecaster Confidence Levels .

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

06Z Update .

Today . High confidence. VFR today after lingering lower clouds/fog patches scour out by 12Z. SW wind gusts of 20 to 25 knots develop by afternoon.

Tonight . High confidence. VFR with light SW winds.

Monday . Moderate confidence. While VFR are expected much of the time, scattered showers & thunderstorms are expected to develop during the afternoon. A few of the thunderstorms may become strong and produce localized torrential rainfall. This will result in locally much lower cigs/vsbys.

KBOS Terminal . High confidence in TAF.

KBDL Terminal . High confidence in TAF.

Outlook /Monday Night through Thursday/ .

Monday Night: Mainly VFR, with local MVFR possible. Slight chance SHRA, isolated TSRA. Patchy BR.

Tuesday: Mainly VFR, with areas MVFR possible. Chance SHRA, slight chance TSRA.

Tuesday Night: Mainly VFR, with local IFR possible. Patchy BR.

Wednesday: VFR.

Wednesday Night: Mainly VFR, with local IFR possible. Patchy BR.

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

MARINE. Tonight through Sunday Night: High confidence.

Small craft advisories remain in effect for all waters due to southerly winds 25-30 kt and/or seas over 5'. Winds should subside early this evening across Boston Harbor and Narragansett Bay. However SCA conditions then continue through Sunday afternoon, with SW gusts in the 20-25 kt range and longer period 5-6' seas. Areas of low clouds and fog again set in for most waters tonight.

The High Surf Advisory ended at 6 PM today. Given the continued long-period southerly swell and the continued threat for rip currents, a new High Surf Advisory has been issued for Sunday from 8 AM to 8 PM for much of the RI and MA South Coast.

Outlook /Monday Night through Thursday/ .

Monday through Monday Night: Winds less than 25 kt. Areas of seas approaching 5 ft. Chance of rain showers, slight chance of thunderstorms.

Tuesday: Winds less than 25 kt. Areas of seas approaching 5 ft. Slight chance of rain showers, isolated thunderstorms.

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

Wednesday through Thursday: Winds less than 25 kt.
