Synopsis
High pressure will continue to bring an extended period of
mainly dry weather right through this weekend. This high
pressure will initially be accompanied by below normal
temperatures into Thursday morning. A warmup occurs thereafter
with above normal temperatures expected by this weekend.

The next best chance at any rainfall in the form of showers is
forecast for early next week.

Near term through today
High pressure over eastern canada will be the dominant feature
for our weather today. Expecting a N to NE flow to develop,
with colder air being push across southern new england. Plenty
of sunshine today will take a bit of the edge off this colder
air. Slightly below normal high temperatures, lowest near the
immediate east coast, CAPE and islands.

Short term tonight through 6 pm Wednesday
Onshore flow continues tonight into Wednesday. Colder air will
continue to flow into our region, with Wednesday probably being
the coldest day this week. As temperatures lower, expecting
marine stratus to develop and move onshore. The layer of higher
moisture content is rather shallow beneath a substantial
subsidence inversion. Temperature differential for ocean
enhancement is impressive for mid september. There may be a few
sprinkles to contend with tonight into Wednesday morning.

Long term Wednesday night through Monday
Highlights...

- mild days, cool nights through the week, dry throughout
- turning warmer over the weekend into next week
- next chance of rain may not be till early next week
details...

transitioning warmer? Mild days, cool nights through this week.

But by this weekend into the following week, we could see
warmer than average conditions. Positive teleconnections across
the board minus the pna. Wpo epo strongest into late september
signaling a strong pacific jet into western N america. Mid-
latitude energy downsheared across the W CONUS as a prominent
mjo is forecast over the W hemisphere africa (phase 1 8), the
potential combination N atlantic tropical waves latent heat
release with favorable downstream E CONUS ridging from an
onshore mild pacific jet supports warmer than average conditions
advertised by CPC 6-10 8-14 day outlooks. All signs point
towards higher heights late september across new england. With
that there does not seem to be much rainfall opportunity.

Ensembles showing out through the rest of the month there's an
sw-ne E CONUS axis into S new england of less than an inch of
total rainfall. Deterministic forecast guidance highlights our
next best chance of rainfall early the following week. Looks
like we're in store for a long period of dry weather which is
not atypical as september is one of more drier months on
average. Neither is warmer than average temperatures. A glance
back at records for late september, we've observed upper 80s to
low 90s for highs.

An ensemble blend forecast with lower certainty on specifics
further out in the forecast. Warming trend into the weekend as
high pressure shifts E and S SW winds prevail prior to a
sweeping cold front early the following week with a chance of
showers. Could see a brief cool down thereafter before warmer
weather builds back in as we go into autumn.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
