Synopsis for massachusetts and rhode island coastal waters.. Weak low pres tracks near cape cod and the islands this afternoon. High pres builds into new eng tonight and Tue from the midwest. A stronger low pres moves ne from the mid atlc region Wed, tracking across the waters Wed night and likely becoming a gale center as it moves to the maritimes Thu. Strong W winds will develop behind the storm Thu into Fri. For information on possible hazardous weather beyond the 24-36 hour forecast period, please visit www.weather.gov/boston and follow the current hazards link above the map on the left.

Synopsis
Weak low pressure will pass near CAPE cod and the islands this
afternoon and will bring showers to the south coast, CAPE cod, and
the islands. High pressure from the plains follows with dry weather
and seasonable temperatures later today and Tuesday. Storm system
Wednesday with rain and wind threats. Blustery, cool Thursday
with chance showers. Chilly, breezy conditions Friday. Frost
freeze conditions possible Saturday morning. Warming up into the
weekend, remaining dry. The next chance of wet weather early to
midweek the following week.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Dense fog has developed across parts of NE ma. Dot webcams and goes-
16 imagery indicate it is patchy and this is expected to be trend
through daybreak. Per coordination with gyx dense fog is more
widespread in S nh.

Area of showers approaching CAPE cod and islands but needs to
overcome some dry air at mid levels which will happen before
daybreak. Continuing to lean on high-res models which keep most of
showers on CAPE cod and islands but also graze south coast. Best
moisture convergence stays offshore where coupled jet dynamics are
focused (250 mb and 850 mb). Weak low passes near CAPE islands early
this afternoon before heading farther ne, bringing an end to showers
and drying by mid to late afternoon in ri E ma in W NW flow behind
it. Highs late in day should reach mid to upper 60s, but low 60s on
cape islands where clearing occurs latest.

Farther inland, just some mid and high cloudiness today before skies
clear from W to E this afternoon. Highs should be closer to 70.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Tuesday
High pressure builds into region from plains tonight and becomes
centered S of new england tue. Cross sections show drying through
column and subsidence so expect clear skies tonight and plenty of
sunshine tue.

Gradient weakens enough Tue afternoon to allow for coastal sea
breezes.

Lows tonight fall back into upper 30s and 40s, except near 50 on
immediate coast. Highs Tue reach 50s to lower 60s.

Long term Tuesday night through Sunday
* highlights...

- storm system Wednesday bringing rain and wind.

- cool, dry, blustery Thursday. Chance showers N w.

- cool with high pressure Friday. Frost freeze Sat morning.

- warm-up, dry weekend.

- potential early to midweek storm the following week.

* overview...

near-seasonable, active weather trend. Renewed NE atlantic cyclone
energy ahead of which mild atlantic air funnels across N europe. A
series of rossby wave breaks across W russia, enough to kick E the
present siberian h5 cyclone energy. Rippling downstream, the pattern
transitioning across the N pacific, a wpo epo teleconnection role
reversal towards positive yielding a mild N pacific jet into the w
conus. Bering straight alaskan h5 low promoting subtle h5 ridging
into the W canadian maritimes, a hudson bay E CONUS trof deepens
through which energy rotates round remnant cyclone energy presently
associated with the n-plains storm system Wednesday. Rossby wave-
train evolution into the latter october with pattern amplification,
a deep W CONUS h5 trof upstream from anomalous E CONUS ridging. A
potential late-october warm-up. Details below.

* details...

around Wednesday...

storm. Continued signals of potent n-stream vortlobe pv-streamer
undergoing a negative-tilt phasing with s-stream remnant eastern n-
pacific presently S of cabo san lucas. Rapid surface cyclogenesis
bombogenesis round SE new england 40n-70w benchmark during energy
transfer through a brief double-barrel low setup. Certainly strong
dynamics and associated lift ascent. Soaking rains. Strong winds.

Another october gale early season nor'easter.

However uncertainty on specifics. Continued run-to-run discrepancies
and model-to-model ensemble member spread. Synoptic wobbles with
individual features more notably the closing mid-upper level low in
respect to anticipated aforementioned cyclogenesis. Further N W over
the interior, the surface low tucks closer to the coast, whereas the
h7-3 low closing over S new england as vortlobe energy bowls through
the mid-level trof yields the surface low closer the 40n-70w bench-
mark. Much different outcomes for our area between the 2 scenarios.

It's going to be several model runs till we can nail down with any
certainty threats and impacts for any one particular area. Potent
nevertheless with 3-4 standard deviation anomaly.

Till then, monitoring several key features. 1.) moderate-heavy rain.

Focus on banding deformation as secondary cyclogenesis emerges at
or near our coastline. Trowaling sub-tropical moisture with dynamic
forcing throughout the column, expecting rain-banding with embedded
thunderstorms (some impressive +60 microbar second omega values per
14.0z gfs). 2.) strong winds. Surface pressure falls 3-4 mb second
with parent pressure fall rise couplet. Isallobaric-gradient driven
wind. At first a conditionally unstable profile and precip-drag that
could bring faster momentum aloft down to the surface preceding the
surface low center. Then a dry slot wraps into the storm. Forecast
model rh cloud fields showing a scorpion tail feature typically
associated with a sting-jet as evaporative cooling proceeds with
isallobarically descending air but looking further downstream (e me
into SE canadian provinces).

Altogether, this storm looks progressive. Not concerned much about
flooding but more about winds and their impact along the shoreline
and across the waters (wind wave). Focus on the Wednesday pm
commute as well. Continued low confidence forecast with preference
to global models. Keep the mention of gales in the hazardous weather
outlook.

Immediately behind the storm, cold air advection, steep lapse rates,
likely blustery right behind associated fronts as temperatures drop
quickly into Thursday.

Thursday...

blustery, cool, showers expected N W of the high terrain, drying and
downsloping into the ct river valley. Typical autumn winter pattern
is back. Chance pops. Clearing out, drying out overnight.

Friday...

crux of cooler air aloft. Will be concerned with frost freeze head-
lines into Saturday morning as winds become light, conditions become
clear. Another breezy day. Winds subsiding along the E SE coast as
high pressure builds from the W overnight. Interior 30s for lows.

Frosty pumpkins.

Saturday onward...

continued signals of a warming trend out ahead of a suggested early
to midweek cyclone. Anomalous h85 temperatures aloft, the potential
for highs into the 70s Sunday through Tuesday so long as SW winds
prevail.

Aviation 07z Monday through Friday
Forecaster confidence levels...

low - less than 30 percent.

Moderate - 30 to 60 percent.

High - greater than 60 percent.

Short term through Tuesday ...

06z TAF update: high confidence.

Areas of lifr CIGS vsbys across NE ma due to fog, which will
lift around 12z.

Otherwise CIGS lower to MVFR early this morning from CAPE cod
and islands into much of ri with ifr CIGS around daybreak and
lasting most of the day. Showers should be confined to immediate
south coast, CAPE cod, and islands through midday. CIGS lower
to MVFR into bos but remainVFR farther N and w. Lower ceilings
improve 21z- 00z as light S SE winds shift to W nw.

Vfr tonight and Tuesday. Gradient weakens enough to allow for
coastal sea breezes Tuesday afternoon.

Kbos terminal... High confidence in taf.

Kbdl terminal... High confidence in taf.

Outlook Tuesday night through Friday ... Moderate confidence.

Tuesday night:VFR.

Wednesday: mainlyVFR, with local MVFR possible. Breezy. Ra.

Wednesday night: mainlyVFR, with local ifr possible. Windy
with gusts up to 35 kt. Ra, chance shra.

Thursday: mainlyVFR, with areas MVFR possible. Strong winds
with local gusts up to 40 kt. Chance shra.

Thursday night: mainlyVFR, with local MVFR possible. Windy
with gusts up to 30 kt.

Friday:VFR. Breezy.

Marine
Forecaster confidence levels...

low - less than 30 percent.

Moderate - 30 to 60 percent.

High - greater than 60 percent.

Short term through Tuesday ... High confidence.

Dropped small craft advisories since seas have subsided below 5 ft
per buoy observations.

Weak low pressure tracks up coast today and passes near CAPE islands
early this afternoon before heading farther ne. Light S SE winds
shift to W NW behind low later in day, then give way to near shore
sea breezes Tue afternoon. Seas build slightly to 4 ft on outer se
waters today and tonight, then subside tue.

Showers mainly affect S coastal waters and CAPE cod bay through mid
afternoon.

Outlook Tuesday night through Friday ... Moderate confidence.

Tuesday night: winds less than 25 kt.

Wednesday: low risk for small craft advisory winds with gusts
up to 30 kt. Seas locally approaching 5 ft. Chance of rain.

Wednesday night: low risk for gale force winds with gusts up to
40 kt. Seas up to 5 ft. Rain, chance of rain showers.

Thursday: moderate risk for gale force winds with gusts up to
45 kt. Rough seas up to 10 ft. Slight chance of rain showers.

Thursday night: low risk for gale force winds with gusts up to
35 kt. Rough seas up to 10 ft.

Friday: moderate risk for small craft advisory winds with gusts
up to 25 kt. Local rough seas.
