SYNOPSIS.

Unseasonably cool and dry conditions persist into early next week. Hurricane Teddy will lift north and pass well east of our region Monday into Tuesday before moving into the Canadian Maritimes. The only impacts for southern New England will be high surf and pockets of minor coastal flooding/beach erosion, but dry weather will persist. Temperatures moderate to near or above normal level for the middle and end of next week. The other main story will be the continuation of prolonged dry weather through most if not the entire week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/.

130 PM Update .

No changes in the latest update forecast remains on track.

1025 AM Update .

Bumped up high temperatures slightly based on observations. May be just a touch too cool for this afternoon. Could see a few spots that get into the mid to upper 60s along the south coast. Remainder of the forecast is on track.

725 AM Update .

* Chilly day despite plentiful sunshine.

* High Surf Advisory posted for most coastlines through Monday.

After a chilly night with first frost of the season for some, an unseasonably cool day is in store. It will be less windy than on Friday though, as surface high pressure moves overhead. 850mb temperatures fall to between -1C and +1C, which will only support highs mainly in the lower to middle 60s despite plentiful sunshine.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 PM SUNDAY/.

Tonight:

* Freeze headlines likely needed for the East Slopes of the Berkshires tonight. Frost headlines elsewhere away from the immediate coast.

Surface high pressure moving overhead combined with dew points falling into the 20s will make for the coldest night of the season so far. A combination of a very dry air mass (PWATs less than 0.25 inches) and winds decoupling will allow temperatures to fall into the upper 20s to low 30s for the usual cold spots and mid to upper 30s elsewhere except for 40s on the immediate coast. Record minimum daily lows could be challenged. See the Climate section for more details. Note that it will remain breezy along the coast throughout the night due to pressure difference between a 1035mb high over Quebec and Hurricane Teddy approaching Bermuda.

Sunday:

* Chilly day with many locations not getting out of the 50s on the last full day of astronomical summer.

As surface flow turns northeast, the large temperature difference between the top of the boundary layer (+2C at 925mb) and the SST (around +18C near Massachusetts Bay) will help with vertical mixing and development of ocean-effect clouds over parts of Eastern MA and RI. How far inland the clouds spill inland remains to be refined but we have high confidence in widespread highs in the mid to upper 50s, which are more typical for late October! In other words, a real shot of fall for the last full day of astronomical summer. Normal highs for mid September are in the low to mid 70s. See the Climate section for the record minimum highs that could be challenged.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/.

Highlights .

* Hurricane Teddy passes well to our east Mon into Tue limiting impacts to high surf & minor coastal flooding/beach erosion

* Below normal temperatures to start off the week moderate to near or above normal levels by the middle to end of the week

* Prolonged period of dry weather will continue through at most if not all of next week

Details .

Monday and Tuesday .

The main focus Mon into Tue will be Hurricane Teddy that will pass well east of southern New England. Model consensus continues to favor the track too far east to bring any rainfall to southern New England. Low risk that a few showers briefly back onto the coast, but even if this were to any rainfall would be light and short-lived. Strong high pressure centered over northern New England will bring persistent gusty NNE winds along the coast and especially the Cape/Islands. The result will be continued high surf and pockets of minor coastal flooding/beach erosion during the times of high tide through Tuesday. Please see that specific section for more details.

We probably will be dealing with more frost/freeze conditions in the normally coolest outlying locations Sun night. High temps on Mon will be mainly be in the lower to middle 60s, but parts of the immediate coast may struggle to reach 60. High temperatures should modify into the middle to upper 60s by Tue.

Wednesday through Friday .

Hurricane Teddy will have lifted into the Canadian Maritimes by the middle of next week. The result will be more of a westerly flow of air aloft and at the surface, allowing for moderating temperatures. Highs should be well into the 70s and perhaps near or above 80 in some locations Thu and Fri depending on the timing of our next cold front.

Besides temps moderating to near or above normal thresholds over this time, the main story will be the continuation of prolonged dry weather. Perhaps a few brief showers sometime Thu night/Fri with a cold front, but even if that occurs instability/forcing appears quite limited so any rainfall would probably be short- live and rather light.

AVIATION /18Z SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/.

Forecaster Confidence Levels .

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

Through 00Z . High confidence.

VFR conditions expected with winds out of the N/NNE. Speeds generally 5-10 kts, however winds will be higher across Cape Cod and the Islands due to a tight pressure gradient. Here could see gusts of 20-30 kts. Cannot completely rule out some stratocumulus advecting in from the ocean with cloud bases around 4 kft.

Tonight . High confidence.

VFR with any gusty winds decoupling at all areas except for ACK. Winds generally out of the N. ACK will see gusts of 20-25 kts overnight.

Sunday . High confidence.

VFR conditions anticipated through the forecast. Gusty winds shifting to the NE. Could see gusts of 15-25 kts at times. Expected some ocean effect stratocumulus to advect inland to Cape Cod and the Islands per NAMnest and NBM guidance. Cloud bases will be around 3-4 kft. Cannot completely rule out MVFR ceilings, but am thinking it will be more SCT to FEW at this point in time. This cloud cover could spread into PVD/BOS.

Sunday Night . High confidence.

VFR with clear skies and light winds across the interior. Will remain gusty across Cape Cod and the Islands. Winds out of the NE with speeds of 10-15 kts and gusts of 25-30 kts.

KBOS Terminal . High confidence in TAF.

KBDL Terminal . High confidence in TAF. Outlook /Monday through Wednesday/ .

Monday through Tuesday: VFR. Windy with gusts up to 35 kt across the southeast New England coast.

Tuesday Night: VFR. Windy with local gusts up to 30 kt.

Wednesday: VFR. Breezy.

MARINE. Gale Warnings continue through this afternoon for the waters of Cape Cod and the Islands. Small Craft Advisories continue for all other waters for the entire weekend due to gusty NNE winds of up to 30 kts and rough seas of 6 to 10 ft. There could be a brief period late tonight and early Sunday when conditions drop below Small Craft criteria as post TC Sally departs and Hurricane Teddy moves north but expect rough seas and gusty winds for much of the weekend.

Outlook /Sunday Night through Wednesday/ .

* Distant Hurricane Teddy may still bring dangerously high seas and Gale Force Wind Gusts Mon into Tue

The main concern will be Hurricane Teddy passing well east of our waters Mon into Tue. Nonetheless, very high seas on the order of 12 to 17 feet will likely develop across our eastern waters along with a period of Northerly Gale Force Wind gusts.

FIRE WEATHER. * A Special Weather Statement is in effect for elevated fire weather potential this weekend.

With minimum RH falling to between 20 to 35 percent for many locations away from the immediate coast, as well as gusty northerly winds, there will be elevated fire weather potential today. The potential is exacerbated by the prolonged dry weather across southern New England.

TIDES/COASTAL FLOODING. Large high pressure over eastern Canada/northern New England will generate gusty NE winds and rough seas across our waters this weekend.

This high pressure system will then combined with Hurricane Teddy passing well east of our region Monday and Tuesday. The end result will be for continued gusty N-NE winds and offshore seas building to between 12 and 17 feet across our eastern waters.

Given this setup we have issued a High Surf Advisory through Monday for ocean exposed beaches. This will likely need to be extended into Tuesday with later forecasts. High surf/Dangerous rip currents are anticipated.

In addition, we are in a period of high astronomical tides into early next week generally between 11.6 and 11.8 MLLW in Boston. This coupled with persistent gusty NE winds and high seas will lead to pockets of minor coastal flooding/beach erosion. We opted to issue a Coastal Flood Statement for today/s midday high tide mainly for some minor splash over along the eastern MA coast. We think Sun and especially Mon/Tue have a greater risk for pockets of minor coastal flooding/beach erosion during the high tide cycle given very high sea offshore. We could see a 0.5 to 1.5 feet of storm surge with a low risk for up to 2 feet on Tue depending on the timing of the strongest winds. Coastal Flood Advisories will likely be needed, but fortunately significant coastal flooding is not expected.

BOX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. CT . None. MA . High Surf Advisory until 8 PM EDT Monday for MAZ007-019-020- 022>024. RI . High Surf Advisory until 8 PM EDT Monday for RIZ006>008. MARINE .
