SYNOPSIS
Second round of strong to severe thunderstorms expected through early tonight ahead of a dry and pleasant Father's Day weekend.
Several days of excessive heat and humidity are likely starting Tuesday and lasting through next Friday.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SATURDAY MORNING/
630 PM Update:

Activity currently near PVD-BOS developed in area of MLCAPE and weak 0-6km shear and has shown weakening trend in past 30 minutes. Some brief wind gusts earlier (34kt at OWD) but this is now transitioning to briefly heavy rain with minor street flooding as airmass stabilizes with loss of daytime heating.

Next round of convection over NJ and SE NY is associated with cold front and upper trough which will rotate through SNE later this evening. HRRR has a good handle on this and brings it through in a weakened state, meaning we'll see more in way of showers vs thunderstorms as we approach midnight, and this activity should be heading off Cape Cod overnight.

SHORT TERM /6 AM SATURDAY MORNING THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/
Departing cold front/deep digging shortwave will allow very, at least for June, dry air to filter into the region on NW/N flow tomorrow. PWATs are expected to drop to around 0.4" by 18/21Z Saturday, yielding a gorgeous, comfortable start to Father's day weekend. Little cloud cover is expected, with dewpoints dropping into the low and mid 40s by early evening. 850mb temperatures between 8-10C will support highs in the mid 70s to low 80s.

Radiational cooling will be in play Saturday night. With very dry airmass in place and mainly clear skies overhead, as well as slackening winds, it is quite possible that low temperatures drop into the low to mid 40s across northwestern MA by daybreak on Sunday. Urban heat islands, like Boston and Hartford, will remain our most mild localities, with lows around 60F expected.
Temperatures across the coastal plain will fall back into the 50s. This is our last shot of cool air for quite some time as mid level ridging starts to build in to end the weekend.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/
Key Point:

* Several days of dangerous heat/humidity Tue-Fri

Big story for next week continues to be likelihood of dangerous heat and humidity starting Tue and peaking Wed-Fri. Ensembles are in very good agreement on building strong upper ridge over eastern U.S.
through most of next week which lends increasing confidence. In fact, 500 mb heights nearing 600 dm is something rarely seen in the Northeast and is a very strong signal for record heat. This aligns with EPS and NAEFS Situational Awareness Tables which show several parameters outside of model climatology relating to temperature, signaling potential for a highly unusual event.

We're also seeing fairly high chances of afternoon highs well into 90s Tue-Fri, if not near 100 in some spots. More importantly, daytime heat indices may reach as high as 105 degrees and there will be little relief at night with nighttime heat indices in 70s.

Upper ridge also favors dry weather for much of next week, but it's possible we see widely scattered showers/storms, especially in Thu- Fri timeframe as cold front approaches from Great Lakes.

AVIATION /22Z FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/
Forecast Confidence Levels:

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

00z TAF Update: High confidence (70%)

Area of showers/storms moving through eastern MA/RI moves offshore early this evening, but another round of showers with embedded thunder should cross southern New England 02z-08z as cold front pushes through. Expect brief lowering to MVFR/IFR.

Otherwise VFR ceilings should prevail through tonight as SW winds veer to W-NW and N overnight, except IFR/LIFR is likely to develop near Cape Cod and Islands. Slow improvement Sat morning with VFR-MVFR ceilings gradually scattering out Sat afternoon as N winds increase to 10-20kt with gusts to 25kt near coast.

KBOS TAF...High confidence in TAF (70%).
