Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Boston/Norton MA 1057 PM EDT Sat Jul 4 2020

SYNOPSIS. Low clouds and fog build back westward tonight. Warm and humid conditions ahead of a cold front may produce scattered thunderstorms on Sunday afternoon north of the Massachusetts Turnpike. Weak high pressure follows Monday and moves off the coast Tuesday. Hot and humid conditions move in for the middle and end of next week with scattered afternoon/evening thunderstorms Wednesday through Friday. Heat Advisories may be needed. Low pressure passing to our south Saturday could bring more widespread showers and thunderstorms to the region. With abundant moisture in place late in the week, any storms could produce locally torrential rainfall.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SUNDAY MORNING/. 1045 PM Update:

GOESEast nighttime microphysics RGB imagery shows low stratus already advancing into our eastern and southern coastal locations. Its current extent along the South Coast extends from Westerly RI eastward into Plymouth and across the Cape, while a sliver of stratus also evident up towards Gloucester. Continued northwestward advection of this stratus deck is anticipated in light SE flow over the next few hours, and have increased sky cover to reflect expected overcast conditions with this update. Increasing SW flow across western/central MA into Tolland/Hartford Counties in CT will likely serve as a western bound to this stratus deck.

Will have to see if we can generate any showers toward the pre- dawn/early Sunday AM hrs, stemming from a shortwave trough now over eastern Ontario which shifts SE through the overnight. Incoming 00z guidance seems to be de-emphasizing this potential. Thinking we will end up being dry but will continue to monitor.

Previous discussion .

Tonight clear skies prevail over most of the region to begin. Hi- res guidance indicates that the stubborn area of low stratus and fog over the Cape and islands will once again fill back in and expand westward. As mentioned previously, developing west winds may help keep this coastal stratus/mist/fog contained to southeastern MA/RI. However, hi-res guidance indicates increasing low level moisture/cloudcover across portions of western MA/CT along with a few scattered showers associated with a weak convergence boundary dropping south after midnight into mid morning Sunday. Model soundings show some elevated instability as well, so can't rule out a rumble of thunder. On the whole, though, expecting a dry night . the main question being extent of cloudcover out west and the effect on how cold it gets.

SHORT TERM /6 AM SUNDAY MORNING THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/. ** Scattered Strong to Severe Storms Possible mid Afternoon/Evening**

We continue to be concerned with the steady if not a bit increasing potential for a few strong to severe storms to impact the region Sunday afternoon and evening. At the moment the area with the greatest chance of strong to severe storms looks to be northeast MA. This is where we see collocation of the best instability, moisture, and shear. However, a more broad area of thunderstorm chances will be generally a line from Providence to Plymouth northward, and west to Worcester.

This convective setup comes courtesy of a mid level shortwave dropping through with a sfc cold front which will help to initiate storms. After the early morning's clouds and any light showers dissipate we'll begin to heat up quickly toward highs in the 80s to near 90 in the CT valley. There are several factors contributing to a chance for strong storms. Dewpoints in the warm sector will reach well into the upper 60s and even low 70s in northeast MA. Under NW flow ML lapse rates steepen substantially, to the 6.5-7 C/km range, while LL lapse rates remain very steep, ~8 C/km. CAPE values will reach 1500-2500. Bulk effective shear increses as well and at 30-35 kts will certainly be capable of sustaining some strong to severe storms. One thing that we've seen as a detriment to storms today has been very dry mid and upper levels. While that will be an issue tomorrow as well, especially for areas south and west of ORH- PVD, we do see increased moisture in the mid and upper levels over northeast MA tomorrow afternoon. This is also where effective shear it maximized, and thus why the greatest threat of severe storms lies here. 12Z HREF guidance indicates a swath of potential for 2-5 km updraft helicity <75 (a proxy for stronger thunderstorms) from eastern CT stretching northwest into northeast MA where values are maximized.

Timing-wise, the window for best thunderstorm chances would be generally 2 pm through 10 pm. Some of the CAMs are indicating two rounds of convection, first in the mid/late afternoon, then another round over northeast MA near/just after sunset.

The main threats from these storms continues to be damaging winds and hail. However, there is small chance for a tornado or two as well. Low level shear parameters are favorable (0-1 km shear 20-25 kts, 0-1 km SHR >150 m2s2). Also, it's been found that a favorable parameter space for quick spin up tornadoes in our area is to have >75 J/kg of 0-3 km CAPE coupled with decent 0-1 km helicity. Both of these thresholds are likely to be met tomorrow. None of these parameters mean we'll see a tornado, but simply indicate that it is a possibility, if/when storms get going. Some flies in the ointment that may inhibit more widespread storms would be marginal mid/upper moisture and forcing being a bit weak. However, this may be able to be overcome by the ample instability and shear.

Overnight the cold front passes and the low moves offshore. Behind the front showers and thunderstorms will dissipate overnight. Behind the front a drier airmass moves in and PWATs drop <0.75", except toward SW CT where the moist airmass lingers.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. Big Picture .

Upper level trough moves from the Gulf of Maine eastward past the Maritime provinces Monday. The upper flow then becomes zonal across the northern U.S. and New England with several shortwaves moving through this flow. Heights rise as upper level ridging moves in.

There is a split in the flow, with consensus of models and ensembles creating an upper level low from the Mid-Atlantic to the southeastern coast. The low pressure surface reflection varies from inland over the eastern Carolinas on the GFS to just off the coast over the warm waters on the ECMWF and Canadian, with a hint of possible tropical development on those models. All models bring tropical-type moisture over our region by Saturday as this low scoots out to sea to our south.

Daily details .

Monday .

Precipitable water values are forecast to drop to 0.5 to 1.0 inches as deep layer dry air spreads southward across most of the region. Expecting mainly a dry day with chances any shower or thunderstorm activity confined to western and southern CT. Highs mainly in the 80s except 70s along the immediate coast.

Tuesday .

Southerly flow develops as high pressure moves off the coast. Highs in the 80s. Sea breezes at the coast. Dewpoints climb to the mid 60s. Not much to trigger thunderstorms, other than typical summertime heat and humidity. have 20-30 percent PoPs, especially in western sections.

Wednesday through Friday . **Heat Indices may exceed 95 degrees each day**

Hot, humid conditions Wednesday through Friday. Highs will reach the 90s inland each day, with each day a degree or two warmer. By Friday, expecting highs in the mid 90s at many inland locations. The heat will combine with sultry dewpoints near or above 70 degrees to produce Heat Index values of 95 to 98 degrees in parts of the area, especially the Connecticut Valley and Merrimack Valley. Heat Advisories will likely be required.

The temperatures at 700 mb will be approaching or exceeding 9C, which is rather high, but probably not high enough to cap convection. So, from mid afternoon through evening hours each day, there will be scattered thunderstorms. With precipitable water values approaching 2 inches, any storms will produce torrential downpours and possible localized flooding.

Saturday .

Saturday's forecast will largely depend on the outcome of the low pressure development over the Mid-Atlantic states on Friday and its movement. All models bring excessively moist tropical air over us with precipitable water values well over 2 inches on Saturday. The ECMWF implies possible tropical development well to our south, with a convective band across southern New England. The Canadian also has the low just off the Mid-Atlantic coast. The GFS remains over land with the low center, which drifts northward toward us. The upshot is there is a lot of uncertainty but showers and thunderstorms with heavy rain appear likely over our region. The clouds and rain could hold temperatures in the 80s.

AVIATION /03Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Forecaster Confidence Levels .

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

03z TAF Update:

Rest of the Overnight: High confidence in trends, moderate on timing.

Expecting an IFR-LIFR stratus layer, having now moved into much of the South Coast and the Cape, to continue advancing northwestward across much of central/eastern MA and into much of RI. Sped up the onset a bit with the recent 03z TAF AMDs, and while confidence in the timing could be off by an hour or so, there's high confidence that most TAFs east of ORH will remain in this stratus deck all night long. Western tier of TAFs to stay VFR as southwest flow caps western extent of the stratus. Light SE winds become S 4-8 kk, though will become SW/W west of ORH.

Sunday: Moderate confidence.

Continued MVFR-IFR near/east of ORH, with low-prob of showers/possible thunder SE of BOS-PVD/I-95. Improvement toward VFR mid-morning/early-afternoon. Thereafter, lowered confidence on location and timing of any possible TSRA in northwest flow aloft between 18-00z. Higher confidence on TSRA into NH. Best chance appears to be near or north of a FIT-BOS line, but may extend as far south as an ORE-ORH-PVD-PVC line. If storms develop, potential for any one to become strong with localized gusty winds and brief sub-VFR visby.

Sunday Night: VFR. Slight chance SHRA and isolated TSRA early, patchy BR.

KBOS Terminal . High confidence in TAF.

KBDL Terminal . High confidence in TAF.

Outlook /Monday through Thursday/ .

Monday: VFR. Breezy.

Monday Night: VFR.

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

Tuesday Night: MVFR/IFR conditions possible. Chance SHRA, chance TSRA, patchy BR.

Wednesday: MVFR/IFR conditions possible. Chance SHRA, chance TSRA.

Wednesday Night: Mainly VFR, with local IFR possible. Slight chance SHRA, slight chance TSRA, patchy BR.

Thursday: MVFR/IFR conditions possible. Chance SHRA, chance TSRA.

MARINE. 715 PM update .

Tonight through Sunday: High confidence.

Winds and seas remain below SCA levels through Sunday. Low clouds and fog (visbys 1-3 miles) will continue to affect most waters tonight.

Southerly winds expected on Sunday. Potential exists for thunderstorms, some possibly strong, on the northern and eastern waters later Sunday afternoon though confidence on development is low.

Outlook /Monday through Thursday/ .

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

Monday Night: Winds less than 25 kt.

Tuesday: Winds less than 25 kt. Seas locally approaching 5 ft. Slight chance of rain showers.

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

Wednesday: Winds less than 25 kt. Areas of seas approaching 5 ft. Slight chance of rain showers, slight chance of thunderstorms, patchy fog. Local visibility 1 to 3 nm.

Wednesday Night: Winds less than 25 kt. Areas of seas approaching 5 ft. Chance of rain showers, chance of thunderstorms, patchy fog. Areas of visibility 1 to 3 nm.

Thursday: Winds less than 25 kt. Seas locally approaching 5 ft. Slight chance of rain showers, slight chance of thunderstorms, patchy fog. Areas of visibility 1 to 3 nm.
