Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Boston/Norton MA 434 PM EDT Sun Jul 5 2020

SYNOPSIS. A weak cold front and upper-level trough will develop isolated showers and thunderstorms late this afternoon and evening across RI and eastern MA. A few storms may become strong to severe. 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 MONDAY MORNING/.

*** Few Strong Storms remain possible in northeast MA including the Greater Boston area ***

435 PM Update .

Very warm to hot conditions across much of the region at 4 pm with 91 degs at BDL/BAF/HFD. However a weak cold front was moving across central MA into RI, providing a large dew pt boundary, with dew pts in the 50s behind the front and 65-70 head of the front across RI and eastern MA. As this boundary continues to advect east and interacts with seabreeze boundaries in I-495 corridor as seen on TBOS radar, this may provide sufficient low level forcing to initiate convection. CU field beginning to blossom a bit over the Worcester Hills into I-495 corridor, so this may be a sign for potential convection over the next 3-6 hrs.

Despite moderate instability (MLCAPE 1000 and 100 j/kg of 0-3 km CAPE) across RI and eastern MA in response to dew pts 65-70 and temps in the mid 80s, forcing for ascent is very weak and has precluded convection from firing so far. However with short wave trough well to the north across southern Quebec into ME, southern periphery of mid level forcing will bleed southward into northeast MA, including the Greater Boston area and possibly westward into the Worcester Hills. This is where 12z HREF has strongest potential updrafts along with 15z SREF Craven-Brooks exceeding 20000. Models typically struggle in these weakly forced environments but we continue to think the focus for convection this evening will be in northeast MA including Greater Boston area and possibly into the Worcester Hills. Main concerns with any storms will be strong winds, hail and heavy downpours. Although can't rule out an isolated storm over southeast MA and RI.

Otherwise a mild night but more comfortable across western CT/MA in the post frontal airmass. Still humid over RI and eastern MA with low clouds and fog for Cape Cod and Islands. Surface low develops on the boundary and tracks toward the south coast. This will shift winds to the north with cooler/less humid air bleeding south late.

SHORT TERM /6 AM MONDAY MORNING THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/.

Monday .

Surface wave near Cape Cod early exits out to sea with weak high pressure building into the maritimes. This yields a light N-NE flow into the region, providing cooler temps for eastern MA with highs only in the 70s for the immediate coastline including Boston. This northeast flow is very shallow with 925 mb temps warming to +22C over western CT. This will support highs in the 80s across RI into central MA and topping out around 90 in the CT River Valley including Hartford. Not quite as humid as today with dew pts in the low to mid 60s except upper 50s in western MA. Dry weather for most of the region, the only exception is over western CT/MA where an isolated shower/T-storm possible given closer to deeper moisture/instability and low level convergence from warm front across eastern NY.

Monday night .

Mainly dry and less humid as 1023 mb maritime high builds southward into Gulf of ME and Cape Cod.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/.

Highlights

* Heat and humidity returns for the middle and second half of the week - could reach 'Heat Advisory' status.

* Tropical moisture to influence Southern New England late week into next weekend.

Tuesday.

A quasi-stationary front will slowly drift from south to north across southern New England. This will give us the chance for thunderstorms during the afternoon hours. CAPE values, especially across western MA/CT, are forecasted to be between 500 and 1200 J/kg. Additionally, it doesn't appear to be a washout of a day, but an isolated heavy downpour or two are possible as PWAT values are between 1.50" and 2.00".

Wednesday though Thursday.

We begin to crank up the heat for the mid-week. Temperatures at 850mb reach +15C to +17C. Mixing to those heights, temperatures at the surface should reach well into the upper 80s to low 90s across MA/RI/CT. Dewpoints will also become uncomfortable - reaching the low 70s. This will give us a Heat Index (apparent temperature) in the middle and upper 90s, which may require a 'Heat Advisory'.

Similar to last week, diurnal heating and sufficient SBCAPE between 1000 and 1500 J/kg will allow for pop-up thunderstorms.

Friday through next weekend.

As of 2 PM Saturday the National Hurricane Center gave an area of storms off the coast of Louisiana a 40 percent chance of tropical formation over the next five days. So far, the guidance suggests it will move across northern Florida and up the east coast. The Euro brings this area of low pressure up towards southern New England earlier Saturday, while the GFS is more progressive, having the arrival on Friday. What models do agree on is that there will be anomalously high PWAT values - around 2.00" to 2.50". That is between 2 to 3 standard deviations above average. With the possibility of heavy rain for an extended period of time, the threat for flooding will be monitored. Besides the threat for heavy rainfall - swells will increase off shore for Friday into much of next weekend. Confidence remains moderate for this period of the forecast.

AVIATION /21Z SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. Forecaster Confidence Levels .

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

18z update .

Thru 00z .

VFR with isolated MVFR in TSRA in the I-95 corridor of RI/MA. Strong winds, hail and heavy rain main concerns. IFR/MVFR in low clouds continue over Cape Cod and Islands continues. S-SE winds along/near the coast from seabreeze.

After 00z .

Any isolated TSRA thru 02z/03z should be focused over northeast MA into NH, then diminishing thereafter. Elsewhere VFR except MVFR/IFR in low clouds/fog over Cape Cod and the Islands. Light SSW winds.

Monday .

VFR with light NE winds. Low risk of isolated an isolated -TSRA over CT into western MA.

Monday night .

VFR but trending toward MVFR/IFR in western CT/MA with low risk of isolated SHRA/TSRA. Light SE winds.

KBOS Terminal . Moderate confidence in TAF. Greatest risk for TSRA 22z-01z this evening. Strong winds, large hail and brief heavy rain.

KBDL Terminal . High confidence in TAF. Mainly VFR and dry weather. Low risk of isolated SHRA/TSRA Monday afternoon and night.

Outlook /Tuesday through Friday/ .

Tuesday Night: Mainly IFR, with local MVFR possible. Breezy. Chance SHRA, chance TSRA, patchy BR.

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

MARINE.

Tonight . Weak low pressure forms on a front over southern New England. Light S-SE winds ahead of the front along with low clouds and patchy fog. Chance of a T-storm over northeast MA waters.

Monday . weak low exits into Georges Bank with light N-NE winds over MA/RI waters. Dry weather and any vsby restrictions in the morning improve in the afternoon.

Monday night . 1023 mb high over the Maritimes provides dry/tranquil weather.

Outlook /Tuesday through Friday/ .

Tuesday: Winds less than 25 kt. Chance of rain showers, chance of thunderstorms, patchy fog. Areas of visibility 1 to 3 nm.

Tuesday Night: Winds less than 25 kt. Seas locally approaching 5 ft. Chance of rain showers, patchy fog. Visibility 1 to 3 nm.
