Synopsis for massachusetts and rhode island coastal waters.. A weak ridge of high pressure across the region will result in light east to southeast into early Sunday. Most of Monday will see south to southwest winds ahead of an approaching cold front. The cold front will cross the waters Monday night to bring northwest winds for Tuesday. For information on possible hazardous weather beyond the 24-36 hour forecast period, please visit www.weather.gov/boston and follow the current hazards link above the map on the left.

Synopsis
Very warm and humid conditions Sunday with an increasing risk
for some showers and thunderstorms. These conditions continue
through midweek, when a cold front will sweep through. Drier and
not as warm late next week.

Near term until 6 am Sunday morning
9 pm update:
line of showers storms continues to march across sne. Trend over
past hour has been for slow weakening, although near-storm
environment is favorable for cores to briefly pulse and become
capable of producing wind damage. Expectation is the line will
weaken further once it reaches the worcester hills, but we could
still see some thunder make it into metro boston toward
midnight. Although conditions are not overly impressive for a
brief tornado, we still need to watch for possibility since
there is plenty of 0-3km cape, decent 0-3km shear, and low lcls.

Looks like shear is a bit weak in 0-1km layer, however.

Modified hourly pops to reflect this trend. Otherwise, light s
flow will bring more widespread low clouds and fog into sne
overnight.

Short term 6 am Sunday morning through Sunday night
Sunday...

warm sector airmass across sne with boundary layer winds
turning sw. This will result in low clouds and patchy fog
burning off and giving way to at least partial sunshine. 850 mb
temps 17-18c which normally supports temps into the lower 90s,
but mixing depth may fall short of 850 mb so will go a bit
cooler with highs mid upper 80s with a few locations in ct
valley possibly reaching 90. Cooler along the coast where sea
breezes develop. Quite humid airmass with dewpoints into the
lower 70s.

Moderate instability develops in the afternoon with capes
1500-2000 j kg. While synoptic forcing is limited, enough
instability to support scattered showers t-storms in the
afternoon, mainly interior where best instability is located.

Sunday night...

expect scattered showers t-storms to linger into the evening as
decent instability persists within a well defined theta-e ridge.

Then convection diminishing overnight. Another warm and humid
night with lows upper 60s to lower 70s. Patchy low clouds and
fog may redevelop.

Long term Monday through Saturday
Guidance shows ridging over the southern usa, shifting to the SW us
during wed-fri as a hudson bay trough deepens and extends southward
into the eastern u.S. Sne remains under the influence of decent mid-
level flow, steering a series of shortwaves in our direction thru
mid-week. Exact timing is uncertain on the shortwaves passing thru,
but with increased moisture, each will have the ability to produce
some showers and possibly some thunderstorms to our area.

A cold front pushes south towards into our area Monday
night Tuesday. However there is model uncertainty on whether or not
the front pushes south of sne, at least for a period of time, or if
it stalls over our area. If the 12z NAM solution pans out, we could
get a brief reprieve on shower potential during Tuesday. However
because of the uncertainty, we will have a continued risk for
showers and thunderstorms during this timeframe. The front should
move back north of our area as a warm front during Tuesday
night Wednesday, which will keep or bring back an unstable airmass
over our area.

Then as the upper trough deepens and pushes short wave energy thru
the eastern great lakes region, a cold front will pass thru our
area. The cold frontal passage should pass thru our area during thu.

The approach and passage of this front will likely bring our
greatest chance for showers and thunderstorms for the week.

High pressure builds in from the west for fri-sat. The base of the
upper trough may lag behind, which could keep a cold pool over new
england on Friday. With much drier air in place, model QPF is
lacking, and for now will continue with this dry forecast. By
Saturday the upper trough should be to our east, with dry conditions
prevailing.

Until the cold front pushes east of our region on thu, it will be
very warm and humid. Dewpoints will remain in the mid 60s to low
70s, with relief from the humidity thu-fri. With temperatures rising
to around 90 degrees early next week, we may need heat advisories
for a time.

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.
