000 FXUS61 KBOX 010555 AFDBOX Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Boston/Norton MA 155 AM EDT Wed Apr 1 2020 .SYNOPSIS... Closed upper low pressure lingers over New England through midweek, but should see mainly dry conditions. An ocean storm will pass well south of the region late this week, bringing gusty and cool northeast winds especially along east coastal areas. An area of rain will move onshore across the region Wednesday night into Friday morning, with wet snow possible especially across the high terrain. High pressure will bring dry but continued cool conditions Saturday. Another weak, fast moving system will bring unsettled weather on Sunday, then dry conditions return early next week. && .NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THIS MORNING/... 150 AM update... Strato-cu has filled in across western MA/CT with lower clouds across Cape/Islands and mainly clear in between. Expect lower clouds to gradually fill in across SE MA overnight as low level moisture backs in across SE New Eng. Strato-cu breaks up out west but high clouds will be moving in overnight. Previous discussion... Clear skies across much of SNE, but areas of low clouds rotating south across waters north and east of Cape Cod and impacting the outer Cape and ACK. Low level RH fields indicate this moisture gradually moving west and HREF suggesting low clouds expanding across eastern MA overnight with a low risk for spotty light rain developing. Meanwhile, some strato-cu expected to fill in across western New Eng per 850 mb RH. Lows will drop into the upper 20s to lower 30s before leveling off. && .SHORT TERM /6 AM THIS MORNING THROUGH 6 PM THURSDAY/... Tomorrow will be watching mid level low emerging out of the TN Valley this afternoon as it tracks ENE off the Mid Atlc coast Wed morning. Dry weather prevails across our region but clouds may dominate the day across eastern MA given NE onshore flow and perhaps some light rain late in the day over Cape Cod and Islands. However farther inland across RI/CT and western-central MA expecting dry weather to prevail with at least partial sunshine. Despite the partial sunshine inland temps will remain chilly given same airmass in place. Expecting highs in the mid to upper 40s inland and upper 30s to lower 40s across eastern MA. Thus another cooler than normal day and gusty NE winds up to 25-30 mph across Cape Cod and Islands will add to the chilly conditions. Wednesday night ... Low tracking well southeast of New England and deepens to about 980 mb by 12z Thu as it enters southeast Georges Bank. While most of our area will remain dry given this distant storm track, the mid level circulation is very large and wraps warm air aloft (TROWAL) back into New England. This will support a risk of rain entering eastern MA. Per model soundings column is cold enough to support some light snow per wet bulb temps but precip may not be heavy enough for wet bulb temps to be realized. Thus, expecting mainly light rain now but will have to watch if heavier precip rotates westward. && .LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/... Highlights... * Near to below normal temperatures through Saturday night, the near to above normal temperatures into early next week * Periods of showers developing sometime late Wednesday night into Friday * Dry Saturday, then spotty showers with another weak disturbance Sunday * Mainly dry conditions Saturday through Tuesday, expect for some scattered showers possible with a cold front passage Sunday into Sunday night Details.... Mid level flow not expected to evolve too much through the end of this week. Still thinking southern New England will be under the influence of a persistent cutoff meandering between the Great Lakes and the North Atlantic. This pocket of colder air aloft will maintain some instability where showers will result at times. This cutoff should finally move far enough away from our region towards Saturday. Expecting the weather pattern to be more progressive as we head into early next week. At the surface, expecting an offshore low pressure to retrograde back to the west Thursday night into Friday. While this low should remain over the North Atlantic, it should get close enough to produce a period of showers, especially across eastern MA. Depending upon the exact timing, which is not yet known, there is a risk for some wet snowflakes across the higher terrain of central and western MA Thursday night. With a high pressure farther to the north, the pressure gradient increases. Could be quite gusty towards the coasts during this time, too. As this low pressure moves farther away Friday into Saturday, looking at a drying trend. Winds will diminish Friday night, but will remain onshore so could see a few isolated showers lingering across Cape Cod and the islands. High pressure then passes by Saturday, with another cold front sweeping across our region Sunday. We should return to the influence of a high pressure early next week. && .AVIATION /06Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/... Forecaster Confidence Levels... Low - less than 30 percent. Moderate - 30 to 60 percent. High - greater than 60 percent. Through 12z... MVFR cigs Cape/Islands spreading inland across SE MA, otherwise mainly VFR. Today...Moderate confidence due to some uncertainty with how far inland MVFR cigs will track. Expect MVFR cigs developing across much of eastern MA/RI this morning with pockets of IFR this afternoon outer Cape/Islands. Mainly VFR to the west. Low risk for some light rain developing late in the day Cape/Islands. N wind gusts 25-30 kt developing in the afternoon over Cape/Islands. Tonight....Moderate confidence. MVFR cigs eastern MA/RI with localized IFR outer Cape/ACK. Mainly VFR to the west. Occasional light rain developing over the Cape/Islands and possibly spreading across eastern MA overnight. N wind gusts to 35 kt over ACK and outer Cape with 25 kt gusts developing along the coast. Thursday...Moderate confidence. MVFR with occasional rain developing eastern MA/RI gradually spreading west and possibly reaching CT valley by late afternoon. Areas of IFR Cape/Islands. N wind gusts 35-40 kt outer Cape/ACK with 25 kt gusts elsewhere. KBOS Terminal...High confidence in trends, but lower confidence on exact timing. MVFR cigs developing 12-14z. KBDL Terminal...High confidence. Outlook /Thursday Night through Sunday/... Thursday Night: Mainly MVFR, with areas IFR possible. Windy with gusts up to 35 kt. Chance SHRA, patchy FG. Friday: MVFR/IFR conditions possible. Windy with gusts up to 35 kt. Slight chance SHRA. Friday Night: Mainly VFR, with local IFR possible. Windy with local gusts up to 30 kt. Slight chance SHRA. Saturday: Mainly VFR, with areas MVFR possible. Breezy. Saturday Night: VFR. Sunday: Mainly VFR, with local MVFR possible. Chance SHRA. && .MARINE... Tonight...Modest NNE wind 10-15 kt with gusts up to 20 kt. Seas 5-8 ft across the outer waters given long NE fetch. Mainly dry weather and good vsby. Wednesday...Low pres emerges off the NC coast and moves ENE well south of New England. However NE winds increase to 20-25 kt late in the day. Seas build as well along with some light spotty rain. Wednesday night...Low pres intensifies as it tracks well southeast of 40N/70W then into southeast Georges Bank. NNE winds increase 20-30 kt along with vsby reduced in rain. Outlook /Thursday Night through Sunday/... Thursday: Low risk for gale force winds with gusts up to 35 kt. Rough seas up to 12 ft. Rain showers likely, patchy fog. Local visibility 1 nm or less. Thursday Night: Low risk for gale force winds with gusts up to 35 kt. Rough seas up to 18 ft. Rain showers likely, patchy fog. Local visibility 1 nm or less.
