SYNOPSIS
High pressure establishes itself over Southern New England through midweek. It will bring abundant sunshine, dry weather, seasonably mild temperatures and northwest breezes through Tuesday. Dry Wednesday through at least mid-day Thursday before more unsettled conditions develop late week. Above normal temperatures return

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TUESDAY/
Tonight

Gusty winds continue out of the NW/SW this evening, depending on which side of a surface trough axis you are on. Southwest gusts prevail over southeastern MA and The Cape with W/NW winds elsewhere.

Broad cyclonic flow persists over The Northeast tonight. The axis of a deep upper- level trough shifts to the east tonight and supports a deep northwest flow over southern New England.
This will push the edge of a weak surface cold front through the region and may support a few spotty showers over The South Coast, Cape, and Islands this evening through about midnight.
Overall moisture in the column is very limited, so expect most locations to stay dry. Any showers offshore will taper off after midnight. Thereafter, clearing skies will prevail with steady northwest winds. Background flow may be weak enough to allow the boundary layer to decouple and support efficient radiational cooling. Not very confident in a maximum radiational cooling night, so elected to blend CONSMOS with the 25th percentile of MinT guidance for the region which yields lows in the upper 30s across interior/NW MA and low to mid 40s elsewhere.

SHORT TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT/
Tomorrow

Very little change in the synoptic pattern tomorrow. Southern New England will continue to be positioned west of a trough axis slowly shifting east over The Atlantic Waters. This will continue to support a deep northwest flow pattern over the region. Air mass will be a bit cooler than on Monday, but efficient mixing will allow for another mild afternoon with high temps in the mid to upper 60s. Low 70s will be a bit harder to achieve. Additionally, we can probably expect some diurnal CU developing in the afternoon thanks to the steep lapse rates. Winds aloft don't look overly impressive, so would expect any gusts from boundary layer mixing to be limited to about 20 mph. Overall a pleasant spring afternoon.

Tomorrow Night

Quiet weather continues again tomorrow night. A mid-level ridge axis will build over southern New England along with surface high pressure. This should support light winds out of the north and clear skies allowing for efficient radiational cooling. Temperatures could dip to freezing across interior/northwest MA with upper 30s to low 40s likely elsewhere.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY/
Long term

Wednesday

Axis of a shortwave ridge aloft moves over the region with a shortwave trough right on its tail. A mainly dry column on Wednesday will keep precip associated with the shortwave out until late Wednesday night. The shortwave will bring high clouds and filtered sunshine to region Wednesday. This will keep high temps down a bit compared to Tuesday only reaching the low to mid 60s inland, and low to mid 50s along the immediate coastlines.

Thursday

Shortwave ridge moves north, while the shortwave trough breaks down, but still sends some cyclonic vorticity into the region. Mid and upper level moisture increases late Wednesday into Thursday.
However, PWATS will be on the low side topping out near 0.8 to 0.9 inches. With weak forcing and low level dry air, probabilities for greater then 0.1 inches of rain from the LREF is less then 50%. With cloud cover and wet conditions around, High temperature only top into the low 50s region wide esspically with onshore flow. Winds Thursday will be on the blustery side with easterly wind gusts of 15- 20mph.

Friday

Latest model guidance is trending drier for the end of the work week with another shortwave ridge moving through along with drying mid levels. Even though the chance for rain is decreasing, clouds will continue to be around with more high level cirrus moving in ahead of a closed trough over the Great Lakes, and some low to mid level diurnal stratocumulus. Highs top out in the upper 50s with low 60s possible. Winds remain a bit gusty out of the south at 10-15mph.

Saturday and Sunday:

Forecast confidence for next weekend is quite low right now with large timing differences among model guidance. The upper level closed low over the Great Lakes looks to weaken as it moves east towards the region. This could bring a cold front and isolated showers to the region, however, not every source of guidance is in agreement that the cold front will actually make it into SNE. Stuck with the NBM which gives 30-40% POP's for Saturday and 10-20% for Sunday. As for temps over the weekend, highs rebound back into the low to mid 60s, but will likely end up on the lower side if rain ends up falling during the daytime hours.

AVIATION /23Z MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/
Forecast Confidence Levels:

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

VFR. Steady NW winds becoming more N after 06Z.

KBOS TAF...High confidence in TAF.
