Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Boston/Norton MA 1012 PM EDT Mon Jul 26 2021

SYNOPSIS. Summer heat returns Tuesday before a cold front slides across the area Tuesday evening. Unsettled pattern returns with the risk for showers and a few thunderstorms each afternoon and evening Tuesday into Friday. Dry and pleasant weather is expected to start this weekend.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM TUESDAY MORNING/.

1010 PM Update .

Previous forecast remains on track. A cluster of scattered showers & thunderstorms across south central NH should track east and stay to our north over the next few hours given the mid level flow. Therefore, maintained a dry/tranquil forecast overnight with no real forcing in our region for precipitation. Low temperatures should mainly be in the 60s.

The main issue overnight will contine to be the smoke in the air and reduced visbility from Wildfires burning in the western U.S. and western Canada. The HRRR indicates some improvement overnight from west to east as the core of the smoke plume pushes east of the region.

SHORT TERM /6 AM TUESDAY MORNING THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/. Tuesday .

High pressure begins to weaken, but clear skies will once again be muddied by elevated smoke on Tuesday morning as another wave of wildfire smoke is transported over southern New England. 925mb temps remain quite high during the morning hours, once again approaching 23-24C. Given good mixing, surface temperatures will approach 90 degrees, warmest across Connecticut.

Things become more interesting after 4 pm as a cold front begins to slide through our area. The greatest threat for significant thunderstorms is north and west of the MA turnpike, where some guidance shows surface CAPE exceeding 2000 J/kg. Additionally, K indicies approach 40 during the same time frame. One limiting factor tomorrow is that the greatest shear remains north of our area, across NH. The greatest 0-6 km shear approaches 40-45 kts, with bulk shear values around 45 kts along the MA/NH border. Northern MA will find itself in the crosshairs of favorable shear and high CAPE, suggesting that the strongest storms will be centered there. Low level lapse rates approach 8-9 C/km.

CAPE diminishes quickly after sunset, but thunderstorms likely persist all the way the south coast through midnight. K indicies will linger in the upper 30s while mid level lapse rates approach a healthy 6.7-7 C/km. Bulk shear values of 45-50 kts will also breathe life into some post-sunset storms.

Tuesday Night .

Thunder lingers through the first half of the evening. Behind the passing cold front, winds will shift from the SW/W to the North as cooler air rushes in. Lows will once again fall into the low and mid 60s. Fog is less likely overnight Tuesday as dewpoint depressions remain between 5-7 degrees.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY/. Highlights .

* Periodic rain and thunderstorm chances through the period, first on Thursday/Friday morning then again the latter half of this weekend

* Temperatures trend below normal Wednesday through this weekend

Still a tale of where will the front be, and when will it be there. expecting a cold front to stall to our south. Lingering risk for some showers early in the day until this front moves by our region. Thereafter looking at drier conditions most of Wednesday. This front should return north as a warm front Thursday, setting the stage for another round of showers and thunderstorms Thursday into Thursday night. Another cold front should move offshore sometime Friday morning, leading to drier weather Saturday. Yet another warm front and cold front pass by Sunday into Monday, leading to the chance for more showers and thunderstorms. None of these days will be a complete washout, but there will be prolonged periods for a chance of precipitation.

Still looking like below normal temperatures Wednesday into early next week.

AVIATION /02Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. Forecaster Confidence Levels.

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

Mainly VFR conditions persist through Tuesday afternoon before local MVFR conditions develop in showers and downpours. Smoke and haze will reduce visibility at times. Patchy fog will be less widespread overnight, primarily impacting Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard.

KBOS TAF . High confidence in TAF. Mainly VFR. Smoke and haze will reduce visibility at times this evening. Showers develop late in the day on Tuesday; chance of VCTS.

KBDL TAF . High confidence in TAF. Mainly VFR. Smoke and haze will reduce visibility at times this evening. Showers develop in the early evening hours on Tuesday; chance of VCTS.

Outlook /Wednesday through Saturday/ .

HYDROLOGY. No active river flood warnings are in effect for rivers and waterways across southern New England.

However, after having a tremendous amount of rainfall from early to mid July, many rivers and streams are running much higher than normal. This is resulting in swift currents that would not typically be seen in the summer. These swift currents can catch those swimming or tubing/kayaking on area waterways off guard. There have been 3 total reports of drownings in the last week on the Farmington River in CT and Squannacook River in MA given the higher than usual flows and swift currents.

Those with interests swimming, tubing or kayaking on area rivers and waterways should be aware that swift currents due to high flows are occurring. This can result in dangerous conditions, and it is generally discouraged to swim, inner-tube, or kayak until flows decrease.

BOX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CT . Air Quality Alert until 11 PM EDT this evening for CTZ002>004. MA . Air Quality Alert until midnight EDT tonight for MAZ002>016- 026. RI . Air Quality Alert until noon EDT Tuesday for RIZ001>008. MARINE . None.
