Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Boston/Norton MA 949 PM EDT Sat Jun 15 2024

SYNOPSIS
High pressure will bring dry and pleasant Father's Day weekend. Dangerous heat and humidity arrives on Tuesday and peak in the Wednesday through Friday time frame. Near to record breaking high temperatures are possible with afternoon Heat Indices between 95 and 105 degrees. Not much relief at night with near record breaking warmest low temperatures and heat indices still in the 70s.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SUNDAY MORNING/
10 PM Update...

Temperatures are quickly falling throughout the region with many locations already in the low 60s. Forecast remains on track. Given the strong radiational cooling anticipated tonight along with the light winds have lowered temps a bit further in latest update. Went with the 10th percentile of guidance, which brings readings down into the 40s for much of the interior. The immediate coastline will see readings in the low to mid 50s.

Previous discussion...

As low pressure continues to exit offshore of Nova Scotia high pressure builds in further this evening and overnight bringing continued clear skies and dry weather. Humidity is much more comfortable for much of the region where (outside of Cape Cod)
dewpoints have dropped into the low 40s. This will make for quite a cold night relative to last night (nearly 20 degrees colder in some spots) thanks to radiational cooling. Thus, leaning on the MOS guidance for the low temperature forecast which handles these situations well. Lows will dip into the mid 40s to mid 50s (urban centers).

SHORT TERM /6 AM SUNDAY MORNING THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/
High pressure becomes centered over New England on Sunday as mid level heights continue to rise. This means another dry and comfortable day with highs in the 70s and dewpoints in the 40s (though more humidity will be moving in from the south late in the day on light southerly winds). Expect a mix of sun and high clouds as a weak shortwave rounds the ridge, but nothing in the way of precipitation. Overnight increased cloudcover and higher dewpoints will limit low temperatures to the mid/upper 50s.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/
Highlights

* Dangerous Heat and humidity Tue through Fri. Heat Indices range from 90-105.

* Near to record breaking high temperatures along with warmest low temperatures during this stretch. Not much relief from the heat anticipated at night. Heat peaks on Wed/Thu.

* Could see some spotty t-storms from Wed-Fri. Better opportunity for more widespread activity over the weekend.

Monday...

A shortwave trough will be sliding across Quebec/northern New England early in the day, while a ridge builds from the Carolinas into the central/eastern Great Lakes. The ridge builds into Mid Atlantic/eastern Great Lakes by late in the day. High pressure builds east of New England during the day, while a warm front lifts through.

Dry and quiet weather expected through this timeframe, despite the warm front lifting through. Think that this will add just a touch more of mid/high cloud. Should see our 925 hPa temps increasing to roughly 15-25 degrees Celsius. Think this flow will be strong enough to keep the sea breeze at bay for eastern areas. The NBM looked reasonable for high temps at this point with readings in the 70s along the south coast and the 80s elsewhere.

Tuesday through Friday...

Dangerous Heat and Humidity expected through this timeframe with generally dry and quiet weather. As previous shift mentioned and is still the case, ensembles are in excellent agreement. The anomalous 500 hPa height fields will approach 600 dm. This is rarely seen in our area and a strong signal for the potential of record heat. Both the NAEFS and EPS situational awareness tables show several parameters outside model climatology. Generally looks like the peak is in the Wed/Thu timeframe. This is a strong indication of a rare/highly unusual weather event. Does appear that the ridge axis planted over us begins to get shunted later on Wed, but especially Thu/Fri as shortwaves slide across the northern periphery.

The dangerous heat/humidity begins to arrive on Tue. Confidence quite high for the risk across the interior, but should be more limited for locations along the immediate coastline due to localized sea breezes. Think that given the S/SWly flow should see more relief along the immediate south coast, but especially the Cape/Islands.
The heat and humidity peaks in the Wed-Fri timeframe. Tossed out the idea given the higher than normal confidence for an Excessive Heat Watch, but have held off for now. This will be something future shifts need to look more into as though we may fall just shy of the 105 heat index in spots think that there is a significant risk for heat issues given we don't get much relief at night. At this point away from coastal/sea breeze areas will have heat indices in the afternoons of roughly 95-105 degrees. At night will have heat indices still remaining in the 70s as well.

Does appear that there will be spotty thunderstorm risk in the Wed- Fri timeframe as the ridge begins to be shunted a bit to the south/southeast. Should have a fair amount of instability and in combination with the heat there could be some spotty t-storms triggered.

Will have the risk for challenging the all time June high temperature records in spots, daily high temperature records for the 18-21 and warmest low temperature records as well. See the climate section below for more of these details below.

Next weekend...

Ridge axis gets shunted offshore, which will return us to a quasi- zonal flow pattern. Could see a shortwave or a more substantial shortwave swinging in, which would bring us shots for more widespread showers and thunderstorms. Still looks like we could perhaps see another mild day on Sat before we cool down to more seasonable values by Sun.

For now have stuck with the NBM guidance through this period as it seems quite reasonable given the pattern. Main focus of the extended was on the dangerous heat/humidity during the week.
