Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Boston/Norton MA 349 AM EDT Wed Jun 19 2024

SYNOPSIS
Dangerous heat and humidity continues through Thursday, although not as hot along the south coast, where winds off the cooler ocean will provide some relief. The heat peaks on Thursday when record highs are possible, before more seasonable temperatures and not as humid weather returns later Friday into Saturday. Showers and thunderstorms are possible each afternoon and evening, from Thursday thru Monday, however many hours of dry weather are expected. Heat and humidity looks to return Sunday and Monday, although not as hot as the current heat.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/

345 AM update...

* Excessive heat and humidity continue today away from the south coast * Mainly dry weather, just low risk of a brief, spot shower/T-storm northern MA this afternoon

Wednesday...

Subtropical ridge continues to build northeast into New England and peaks at around 598 dam this afternoon, slightly stronger than Tuesday. Thus, more of a capped environment should support a mainly dry forecast. Can't rule out an isolated, brief shower/t-storm over across northern MA on the periphery of the ridge. Otherwise, most locations remain dry today along with mostly sunny conditions. Some late day cloudiness across northern MA in response to convection just across the border in NY/VT and NH.

Airmass continues to warm with 850 mb temps rising another deg or two from Tuesday, up to +19C to +20C by late Wed. 925 mb temps also rise to +24C to +26C, highest values across northern MA. This will support a swath of highs of 92 to 97 across northern portions of CT/RI/MA, hottest across northern MA. These air temps combined with dew pts in the low 70s will yield heat indices ranging from 95 to 104, hottest values in the Merrimack Valley of northeast MA. Hence, heat headlines remain in effect.

Not as hot along/near the south coast, in response to SSW winds streaming across cooler SSTs in the low to mid 60s. This will yield highs in the 80s, except 70s along the immediate coast including Cape Cod and the Islands.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 PM THURSDAY/

345 AM update...

* Another warm and humid night * Heat & humidity peak Thu with highs 93-98, not as hot south coast * T-storms possible northern CT/RI/MA Thursday

Tonight...

No change in airmass, thus not much relief with lows only 65-70.
Remaining humid with dew pts in the 60s. Any early evening isolated shower/t-storm along or near the MA/VT-NH border will fizzle quickly with sunset given lack of deep layer shear and poor mid level lapse rates. Could have some patchy late night/early morning fog along the south coast.

Thursday...

Subtropical ridge remains over the region with temps aloft warming a few more degs, with much of northern MA having 925 mb temps warm to about +26C. This will support highs in the mid to upper 90s with hottest values across northern portions of CT/RI/MA, including metro Boston. These air temps will combine with dew pts in the low 70s to yield heat indices between 95 and 104, highest values once again over northern CT/RI/MA. Mostly sunny conditions will continue, except during the afternoon becoming partly cloudy with possibly convection across northern MA. Surface winds becoming more WSW as ridge becomes elongated west to east.

As northern stream trough traverses Ontario and Quebec, some weak height falls occur on the northern periphery of the tropical ridge, opening the door for afternoon convection across NY/VT/NH, possibly spilling into northern MA. Low risk for a few strong storms especially across northern MA with up to 2000 j/kg of SB CAPE combined with some weak forcing for ascent and eroding cap on northern periphery of ridge over northern MA. Also, localized heavy rain threat with PWATs up to 2 inches and deep unidirectional westerly flow, promoting backbuilding/training cells. HRRR PMM field has 10% probability of 3 inches of rain in 3 hours across northern portions of CT/RI/MA. Given the lack of deep layer shear and poor mid level lapse rates, thinking the threat of heavy rain is greater than the risk for severe storms. Also, lack of shear and instability aloft will support afternoon convection weakening with sunset and cooling blyr.



LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/

345 AM update...

* Some relief from the heat on Friday and Saturday, though heat headlines may still be necessary for portions of Connecticut on Friday.

* Shower/Thunderstorm chances each afternoon/evening through Sunday, with the best chance across CT.

* Stronger shortwave/cold front may bring more widespread precipitation/thunderstorm chances late Sunday night and Monday

Strong ridging begins to collapse late week which will allow a cold front to drop south across southern New England during the day on Friday. While signals of this began to crop up last evening, confidence continues to increase with significant model consensus between the global and long ranged hi-res (NAM12km) guidance, in more tolerable temperatures developing across the region. There does remain uncertainty in how far south and west the front will progress, which will likely lead to a significant temperature gradient Friday afternoon across the region, with portions of the CT River Valley making (yet another) run at 90F and temps across eastern MA cooling into the 70s thanks to onshore flow behind the front. Given growing confidence in cooler conditions, heat headlines have been dropped away from the CT River Valley on Friday.

Showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop along the "ridge", well collapsing ridge, axis Friday afternoon, which is currently expected to be concentrated across central Connecticut.
Low level lapse rates around 8C/km combined with MUCAPE values approaching 2200J/kg will drive storm development, but with really subpar mid level lapse rates (around 5C/km) and the best bulk shear flip-flopped from the greatest instability (bulk shear of less than 20kt across CT Friday afternoon/evening, but higher across eastern MA where CAPE is much lower), we'll likely see some pulsey sub severe storms that could generate a heavy downpours given a "skinny CAPE" and PWATs exceeding 2". Storms will struggle to survive past ~02Z, however, as instability completely collapses after sunset.
It's sort of a "copy paste" scenario for Saturday with little change in the airmass. Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are again possible across the region, though would hedge fewer localities see rain Saturday afternoon compared to Friday as both temperatures and dewpoints around 5F cooler.

Showers/thunderstorms look to grow in coverage Sunday afternoon and evening as robust shortwave begins to approach from the Great Lakes region. Will likely see several rounds of precipitation between Sunday afternoon and Monday evening before trailing cold front finally moves eastward of the region by late Monday/early Tuesday.
The first round of storms Sunday afternoon will again struggle to persist past sundown as instability is lost. Beyond Monday, it appears that another prolonged period of warm and dry conditions develops for next week.
