Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Boston/Norton MA 1238 PM EST Mon Jan 20 2020

SYNOPSIS. Dry, but cold weather is on tap for through Tuesday as high pressure slowly builds in from the west. Temperatures will begin to moderate Wednesday and especially by Thursday/Friday, but dry weather will persist. There is the potential for a coastal storm this weekend, but uncertainty exists in regards to timing and precipitation types.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. High pressure is centered over the Midwest with a broad area of 1 mb/hr pressure rises across the Eastern USA and enough of a pressure gradient to support northwest winds across Southern New England, especially over Cape Cod and the Islands.

Radar shows ocean-effect snow across Outer Cape Cod with patches that extend through the Mid-Cape. The 12Z sounding at Chatham showed an inversion with base near 850 mb, and temps of minus 15C at that level. Buoy reports at 14Z/9 AM showed water temps of 39 to 44F/4 to 6C over Mass Bay and adjoining waters. The air-water differential was thus about 20C, enough with the existing wind to maintain ocean-effect snow into the afternoon.

No significant changes to the forecast except to extend pops for snow showers over Cape Cod later into the afternoon.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 PM TUESDAY/. Tonight through Tuesday:

Surface ridge, extending E from a strong 1044 mb high pressure area centered over the Northern U.S. Plains, will remain across much of New England through the short-term forecast period. High pressure weakens/modifies as it moves southeastward towards the central Appalachians by late Tuesday. Cyclonic flow aloft is maintained through the period as well, with some reinforcement of the trough aloft being delivered by a shortwave disturbance which moves quickly southeastward into northern NH through ME late tonight into Tuesday.

All told, this looks to be a continued chilly but also a fairly tranquil stretch of weather. Plenty of sun during the day, and clear/calm conditions at night supporting near optimal radiational cooling and cold low temps. Lingering NW winds around 10-15 mph early tonight will continue to lighten and eventually become light and variable into Tuesday.

Temperatures will be below-average compared to typical late-January climatology. Under good radiational cooling, low temperatures in the single digits across north-central and northwest MA under a light snowpack, with lower teens otherwise common in the interior into the coastal plain. Lows on the Cape and the Islands into the upper teens to low 20s. Highs Tuesday under plentiful sun then rebound back into the 20s.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/. Highlights .

* Moderating temps begin Wed with above normal temps Thu/Fri along with continued dry weather

* Potential coastal storm this weekend would favor more rain than snow along the I-95 corridor but uncertain across the interior

Details .

Wednesday through Friday .

Large high pressure will remain in control Wed/Thu and Fri. This will maintain dry/tranquil weather, but temperatures will moderate as some upper level ridging builds into southern New England. High temps should recover well into the 30s Wed and then into the 40s by Thu/Fri. Weak gradient may allow for sea breeze development, so could be some cooling along the very immediate coast during the afternoon. Regardless, given light winds and above normal temperatures it will feel rather comfortable outside during Thu and Fri afternoons for late January standards.

This Weekend .

The long range guidance/ensembles continue to indicate the potential for a coastal storm to impact southern New England sometime this weekend. Given this is still 5 to 6 days in the future, uncertainty exists on potential timing, ptype, and amounts. The one thing we can say is that the antecedent airmass ahead of this potential storm will be relatively mild for January standards. This is a result of a deep Alaskan trough allowing for modified Pacific air across our region. That being said, there does appear to be a surface high pressure located across eastern Canada. Depending on its exact positioning and track of the potential coastal storm, just enough cold air may result in the threat for snow/ice across parts of the interior. While snow can not be ruled out along the coastal plain too, rain would be favored unless the low pressure system would be ideal for winter weather.

So in a nutshell, this potential storm is still 5 to 6 days in the future and not a guarantee the we are impacted. There is some blocking to the north, so this does have the potential to be a slow moving coastal storm. Ptype would favor more rain than snow along the coastal plain, but greater uncertainty further back into the interior.

AVIATION /18Z MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. Forecaster Confidence Levels .

MARINE. This afternoon .

Small Craft Advisory continues on all waters through 4 PM and on Mass Bay and the outer waters through the evening.

Tonight: NW winds 10-15 kt gusts 15-25 kt early, then subsiding to 20 kt gusts by overnight. Seas 4-6 ft. Good visibility.

Tuesday: NW winds around 10 kt decrease to light NW. Seas decrease to 2-4 ft on offshore waters, around a foot nearshore. Good visibility.
