Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Boston/Norton MA 1022 AM EDT Sun Sep 27 2020

SYNOPSIS. Fog and low clouds thin this afternoon leaving a mild humid afternoon. Weak low pressure area approaching tonight may trigger a few showers. Increasingly moist southerly flow out ahead of a cold front, bringing showers into Tuesday. The greatest chance of rain comes with a series of frontal systems Wednesday into Thursday. Temperatures will be near or slightly above normal until the front cools things down by late week.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/.

Challenging forecast for a quiet weather day. Low level south flow and mid level west flow are moving clouds overhead. Broad areas of clear skies over the ocean. However, also signs of clouds reforming as the ocean air moves over land. So the remaining question is about how much clearing will take place this afternoon.

Cross-sections do show drying in the lowest couple-thousand feet of the atmosphere, but also lingering moisture between 925-mb and 850-mb. All of this moisture fills in again to the surface this evening.

This forecast will show sky cover diminishing to between 60 pct and 80 pct this afternoon . a partly to mostly cloudy range. Will monitor and update as needed. Temperatures at 925 mb are forecast at 17-18C, equiv to 9-10C if lifted to 850 mb. Temps at 900 mb equiv to 10-11C. Observed temps at 10 AM were upper 60s and low 70s. Put it together, and temps similar to Saturday are reasonable.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 PM MONDAY/. A combination of a weak surface low pressure and a mid level shortwave is expected to approach our region tonight into Monday. This may be enough lift to trigger scattered showers, which have been very tough to come by the last several days. The greatest risk will be towards Nantucket, which will be closest to the weak surface low pressure. Where it does rain, most locations should only receive less than one tenth inch. A few locations towards eastern RI and southeast MA could see locally higher amounts up to one quarter inch. Unfortunately, this will not be common.

With a mid level trough axis to our west through Monday, above normal temperatures continue, despite increased cloudiness.

LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/. Highlights .

* Warm temperatures continue Tuesday, the a cool down starts beginning Wednesday

* Moist, southerly flow continues Tuesday bringing scattered showers

* Frontal systems will bring more widespread rain Wednesday into Thursday along with some gusty winds.

Details .

Monday night and Tuesday .

Rain chances increasing with time during this period, so Monday night should be mostly dry while appreciable rain chances move in during the day on Tuesday. Looking aloft we see the weak shortwave lifting north of southern New England overnight which will allow for the break in more widespread rain chances. Plenty of cloud cover remains, however. Cooling overnight will be curtailed by continued moist southerly flow and dewpoints in the low 60s. Lows would normally be in the low 50s in late September.

By Tuesday the trough moves into the mid Atlantic while the cold front approaches from the west. This, together with a stronger 25-35 kt low level jet and PWATs near 2 inches will bring more widespread showers than we saw on Monday. The anomalously warm airmass sticks around too, with highs in the upper 70s.

Tuesday night through Thursday .

A more significant wet stretch of weather begins late Tuesday, lasting through Wednesday night or early Thursday. While the GFS briefly backed off of the secondary low moving up the coast late Wednesday night, latest 00Z guidance once again places it in good agreement with the ECMWF, which has shown this solution for several days now. The temporal consistency of the ECMWF as well as support from the ensembles would would lead me to hedge toward this outcome. That would lead us to have two somewhat distinct periods of heavier rainfall, first Tuesday night into Wednesday and then again Wednesday night into early Thursday. Timing of course is subject to change and guidance disagrees on how quickly the rain ends Thursday, but the general idea remains. The first round comes as the mid- Atlantic trough digs in and a sfc low lifts across New England bringing with it strong jet dynamics. Then, a low over the southeast U.S. moves up the east coast and strengthens on approach bringing more heavy rain and potential for strong winds late Wed into Thursday. Rainfall amounts could be up to a localized few inches, but where that heaviest swath of rain falls is unknown at this time. Ensemble guidance suggests a good chance of widespread rainfall totals over a half inch. Anything would be beneficial for our drought stricken region.

Friday and Saturday .

A good deal of uncertainty with the specifics of the far extended forecast . much will hinge on how the mid week system plays out. Generally, though, much drier and cooler air filters in behind Thursday's system bringing temperatures back below normal. Highs return to the 60s with lows back in the 40s.

AVIATION /13Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Forecaster Confidence Levels .

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

12Z update .

This afternoon . Moderate confidence.

Monday . Moderate confidence.

MVFR/IFR to start, improving to VFR during the afternoon. Scattered -SHRA.

KBOS Terminal . High confidence in TAF trends. Moderate confidence in timing.

KBDL Terminal . High confidence in TAF trends. Moderate confidence in timing. Outlook /Monday Night through Thursday/ .

MARINE. Light winds and seas continue this afternoon due to circulation around high pressure centered near Bermuda.

A disturbance moving up from the Mid Atlantic coast will bring a chance of showers tonight into Monday. Expect increasing south winds and building seas. Issued a Small Craft Advisory for some of the southern coastal waters due to marginal rough seas. Gusts up to 20 kt.

Outlook /Monday Night through Thursday/ .

Monday Night: Winds less than 25 kt. Seas up to 5 ft. Slight chance of rain showers.

Tuesday through Tuesday Night: Winds less than 25 kt. Seas up to 5 ft. Chance of rain showers.

Wednesday: Moderate risk for Small Craft Advisory winds with gusts up to 25 kt. Rough seas up to 8 ft. Rain showers likely.
