Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Boston/Norton MA 236 AM EST Sun Jan 24 2021

SYNOPSIS. Cold and blustery this morning with possible sub-zero wind chills. Winds slacken Monday as high pressure builds into Southern New England. Though a couple periods of light snow are possible thru midweek, seasonable and dry weather generally prevails. A powerful area of low pressure near the mid- Atlantic waters on Thursday may bring breezy conditions to southern parts of MA and RI, though it looks to otherwise pass harmlessly to our south. A brief shot of much colder air then filters in for late in the week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TODAY/. Not much change to the weather features today. Our region remains positioned between a low pressure over the Maritimes and a high pressure across the central Appalachians. This will maintain a cold and gusty northwest flow through most of today. Winds should become less gusty and strong late today as this high pressure edges closer to our region.

Not seeing much moisture nearby. While there may be a few clouds over land, there will be plenty of sunshine. Clouds will be more of a feature across the outer coastal waters, where some ocean- effect clouds linger.

High temperatures today are expected to be pretty close to what we saw yesterday, which will be slightly below normal. With the gusty winds, wind chills will be mainly in the single digits above zero and teens after daybreak.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH 6 PM MONDAY/. High pressure to our west will become more of a factor in our weather. Dry and chilly weather continues, but winds will continue to diminish tonight into Monday

Not ideal radiational cooling conditions tonight, but it will still be cold enough for most, and near normal for late January. Increasing mid and high clouds ahead of a warm front Monday, with near normal high temperatures expected.

LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/. Highlights .

* Light, decorative snow Tue/Tues nite for western MA/CT.

* Dry weather then prevails, but turning breezy on Thurs as a powerful cyclone near the mid-Atlantic waters passes well to our south.

* Much colder air for Fri/Sat, potentially with low wind chills.

Details:

Monday Night into Tuesday Night:

500 mb height rises and sfc ridge will initally be in place Mon night. The mid-level height rises will shift a NW-SE axis of mid- level confluent flow to the north into ME/NH. Looking at mostly clear skies and dry conditions for Mon night with modest NE winds increasing slightly late. Lows mainly in the 20s.

A deamplifying 500 mb shortwave trough is still progged to move into the lower Great Lakes Tues and into PA/southern NY Tues night. This feature will draw some moisture NE along a sfc warm front into western MA and parts of northern CT late Tues, and perhaps into central MA and RI Tues night. However a number of factors support the idea that this will likely be more of a decorative/mood snow at best. For one, weakening/deamplifying upper level energy won't support robust accumulation. The moisture that is available is rather limited, and some of that will have to initially go to top- down column saturation given initially dry air in place. Mid-level confluent flow over the eastern third of the CWA into ME/NH will also limit the eastern/northeast extent of precip. Will continue to focus highest PoPs (Chance range) from later Tues into Tues night for areas mainly SW of a Orange-Worcester-Providence line. GFS remains further north and is among the wettest guidance in terms of QPF, though did note the ECMWF increased its QPF a bit. Model QPF consensus is less than two-tenths of an inch, and part of this will go to saturating the column. With limited snow growth parameters as well, locally up to a couple inches of new snow accumulation, though most in western MA/CT into western RI will see coatings to an inch. Highs in the 30s, with lows in the 20s.

Wednesday into Wednesday Night:

High pressure returns for Wed, though some RH left behind will keep skies more partly to mostly cloudy. While most of the interior should be dry, may have some ocean effect precip for Cape Cod and adjacent coastal southeast MA later Wed into Wed night. Highs mainly in the 30s for most to near 40 for southeast New England. Lows mainly in the 20s.

Thursday/Thursday Night:

Models continue to advertise a well-defined shortwave disturbance moving through the mid-Atlantic region Thurs, which induces coastal cyclogenesis near the Carolinas/Chesapeake Bay area. Rapid deepening into a powerful (sub-980 mb) cyclone is reflected across most of the guidance, though good clustering in EPS/GEFS/GEPS ensemble member lows showing a progged track south and east of 40N/70W.

While this cyclone looks to pass to our south thru Thurs night, fairly robust northerly pressure gradient between the cyclone's circulation and high pressure established over New England could lead to fairly breezy to gusty NE wind conditions. This is particularly the case the further south one goes. Have left populated NBM winds/wind gusts as is, which brings some 30 mph gusts to the South Coast and Cape Cod. Will have to see just how close the circulationg gets and how strong the cyclone deepens but could see a need to increase winds/gusts more than currently reflected. At the moment, breezy conditions and mostly dry weather (outside of ocean- effect precip for coastal MA) look to be the only effects for our area.

Friday into Saturday:

Potent closed low near Hudson Bay digs southward through New England on Friday. This feature looks to be associated with a strong shot of colder, modified-Arctic air. Advertised a dry forecast for now with limited moisture for this closed low to work with. However it turns quite cold with 925 mb temps plummeting to around -14 to near -20C on Fri into Fri night. Highs mainly in the 20s with lows single digits to teens, about 10 degrees below normal. With northerly winds around 15-20 mph through the night, we could be talking about low wind chills that could be worthy of headlines. Looks to be a brief period of below-normal temps though; while still below-average temps for Sat, the cold air mass does start to modify.
