Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Boston/Norton MA 740 PM EDT Thu Jul 29 2021

SYNOPSIS. Isolated strong to severe thunderstorms possible overnight south of I-90. Passing cold front produces clear skies for Friday and Saturday afternoon. A frontal system brings another threat for showers sometime Sunday and/or Sunday night. Dry weather returns for Monday before our weather pattern turns more unsettled into the middle of next week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM FRIDAY MORNING/.

730 pm update .

As expected, things have stayed quiet thus far with cores struggling to even reach 15,000 ft. Given that, we've yet to even achieve any lightning with these showers. Instability is limited for now, with a good deal of CIN from Worcester east helping to keep things in check. Over the next 6 hours the axis of greater instability shifts overhead as the warm front which still sits just to our southwest lifts north; that will be our window of a few strong to severe storms. No major changes to the previous thinking.

Previous Discussion .

.Tonight. Light to moderate showers with isolated thunder continue this evening for areas north and west of I-95. Surface low-pressure tracks northwest of southern New England overnight. Showers and thunderstorms will overspread the rest of southern New England as the surface warm front lifts northeast over the region and the surface cold front approaches from the west. There will be the potential for a couple of isolated strong to severe thunderstorms as both sufficient instability (500-1000 J/kg CAPE) and deep layer shear (35-40 knots effective shear) will be supportive of organized convection. While damaging wind gusts will be the most likely hazard, we cannot rule out the possibility of an isolated tornado. Model low-level shear and helicity values have been rather impressive for areas south of I-90 with the GFS suggesting the possibility for 1km shear values near 30 knots. Furthermore mean 1km helicity values from the HREF members are in the 100-150 unit range. Should any tornadic activity occur it would likely be limited in both duration and intensity given the relatively weak instability and poor low-level lapse rates.

In addition to the isolated threat for strong to severe thunderstorms, we're also under a slight risk for excessive rainfall tonight. PWATs > 1.5" will be supportive of heavy downpours and locally high precipitation rates. Should any training thunderstorms occur over the more vulnerable areas in western MA/CT, flash flooding could be a possibility. Showers and storms lingering into the morning should be clear of the area an hour or two after sunrise as the surface cold front pushes east of the region.

SHORT TERM /6 AM FRIDAY MORNING THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT/. .Friday.

Surface cold front pushes through the region tomorrow morning resulting in a windshift to the northwest. This will usher in drier air which will allow for clearing skies as the day progresses. Gusty northwest winds will support deep mixing that should support high temperatures in the upper 70s to low 80s for most areas in southern New England tomorrow afternoon.

.Friday Night.

Strong cold air advection behind the surface cold front coupled with radiational cooling will support chilly temperatures Saturday morning for late July. Could see lows in the upper 40s for areas out west! For reference, the average low temperature this time of year for Worcester,MA is 61 degrees. So this puts us at close to 10-15 degrees below normal (an early taste of fall). Modest winds Friday night(5-10 knots) may result in mechanical mixing that will limit radiational cooling so rather than going with the lowest guidance available, I opted to blend the consensus MOS guidance and the 25th percentile of the NBM. This seemed reasonable given the strong CAA aloft and expected clear skies.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Highlights .

* Dry, cool, and pleasant Saturday with low humidity and highs in the mid 70s.

* Relatively cool and periodically unsettled weather continues through at least mid week with no big warm up in sight.

Details .

The region will remain in this overall (relatively) cool and periodically unsettled pattern through at least the middle of next week. This is thanks in part to the persistent area of upper level troughing overhead with its axis over the Great Lakes region through the extended forecast. This places southern New England under the influence of a cool airmass with 850 mb temperatures in the +10 to +12C range. As such, while the warmest spots like the Connecticut River Valley may touch 80 a few times, most locations will see highs in the mid to upper 70s every day. For reference, normal highs for early August are in the 80s. Additionally, dewpoints in the 40s Saturday and 50s Sunday will allow for some cool nights. While Saturday morning will be the coldest, Sunday morning will still be quite cool, in the low to mid 50s inland.

A few chances for showers and thunderstorms come late Sunday into next week as shortwave after shortwave move through downstream of the parent trough. Additionally, we'll be in favorable placement to have at least one coastal storm move up along the east coast and within our vicinity first Sunday night then again potential around Tuesday or Wednesday. At this point confidence is low on potential impacts if any. Odds are good that rain returns late Sunday/Sunday night but more likely associated with the low pressure passing to our north. The system around Tue/Wed carries even less confidence. Regardless, we remain beneath cyclonic flow with periodic surges of moisture so rain chances will be off an on through the week, but no big warm ups are in sight.
