SYNOPSIS

High pressure will bring dry weather and warming temperatures to start the week. Dangerous heat and humidity arrives on Tuesday and peaks in the Wednesday through Friday time frame.
Near to record breaking high temperatures are possible with afternoon Heat Indices between 95 and 105 degrees. Not much relief at night with near record breaking warmest low temperatures and heat indices still in the 70s.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM MONDAY MORNING/

High level cirrus clouds continue to stream overhead as a weak shortwave rounds the ridge. Meanwhile the radar is clear except for one feature of note: the leading edge of the seabreeze moving north into RI and southeast MA. More of the same quiet weather is expected tonight under high pressure with mostly clear skies. This will allow for some radiational cooling once again, though slightly warmer dewpoints thanks to southerly flow will limit it a bit. Lows dip into the low to mid 50s.

SHORT TERM /6 AM MONDAY MORNING THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/

Mid level ridging continues to build over the region which, along with surface high pressure shifting east, will start to further warm the airmass overhead. 850 mb temps increase from 9C this afternoon to 16C by Monday afternoon. This translates to high temperatures in the low to mid 80s for many. The exception will be for much of Rhode Island and southeast MA where increasing southerly flow off the water will hold temps in the 70s. It will feel more humid on Monday as dewpoints increase from the 40s today to the upper 50s/low 60s.
Monday night southwest flow continues to increase dewpoints a few degrees keeping lows quite mild, in the low to mid 60s.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/

Highlights

* Dangerous Heat and humidity Tue through Fri. Heat Indices range from 90-105.

* Near to record breaking high temperatures along with warmest low temperatures during this stretch. Not much relief from the heat anticipated at night. Heat peaks on Wed-Thu.

* Could see some spotty t-storms from Wed-Fri. Better opportunity for more widespread activity over the weekend/early next week.

Tuesday through Friday...

Dangerous Heat and Humidity expected with generally dry and quiet weather. As previous shift mentioned and is still the case, ensembles are in excellent agreement. The anomalous 500 hPa height fields will approach 600 dm. This is rarely seen in our area and a strong signal for the potential of record heat.
Both the NAEFS and EPS situational awareness tables show several parameters outside model climatology. Generally looks like the peak is in the Wed/Thu timeframe. This is a strong indication of a rare/highly anomalous weather event. The ridge axis planted over us begins to get shunted later on Wed/Thu, but especially Fri as shortwaves slide across its northern periphery.

The dangerous heat/humidity begins to arrive on Tue. Confidence quite high for the risk across the interior, but should be more limited for locations along the immediate coastline due to localized sea breezes. Think that given the S/SWly flow should see more relief along the immediate south coast, but especially the Cape/Islands.
The heat and humidity peaks in the Wed-Fri timeframe. Current Excessive Heat Watches look fine, though may need to expand in future updates as though we may fall just shy of the 105 heat index in spots think that there is a significant risk for heat impacts given we don't get much relief at night. At this point away from coastal/sea breeze areas will have heat indices in the afternoons of roughly 95-105 degrees. At night will have heat indices still remaining in the 70s as well.

Does appear that there will be spotty thunderstorm risk in the Wed- Fri timeframe as the ridge begins to be shunted a bit to the south/southeast. Though there is some uncertainty in this as did have to bump up to slight chances on Wed/Thu from the NBM. Did this as there is fair amount of instability and in combination with the heat there could be some spotty t-storms triggered.

Will have the risk for challenging the all time June high temperature records in spots, daily high temperature records for the 18-21 and warmest low temperature records as well. See the climate section below for more of these details.

Next weekend...

Ridge axis gets shunted to the south, which will return us to a quasi-zonal flow pattern. Could see a shortwave or a more substantial shortwave swinging in, which would bring us shots for more widespread showers and thunderstorms. Still looks like we could perhaps see another mild day on Sat before we cool down to more seasonable values by Sun into early next week.

For now have stuck with the NBM guidance through this period as it seems quite reasonable given the pattern. Main focus of the extended was on the dangerous heat/humidity during the week.
