000 FXUS61 KBOX 030539 AFDBOX Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Boston/Norton MA 1239 AM EST Wed Mar 3 2021 .SYNOPSIS... An extended period of dry weather is expected through early next week. After a brief moderation in temperatures Wednesday, cold/blustery weather will return Thursday and continue into the weekend although not to the magnitude of what occurred today. A significant moderation in temperatures is anticipated early next week. && .NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THIS MORNING/... An area of mid and high clouds moving into Western MA and CT will spread across the region overnight. Radar reports are mostly nil. An area of snow showers over the Adirondaks, but the upper flow should carry this over VT/NH. ith surface dew points in the single numbers and below zero, the air over Srn New England will be too dry for any significant showers to reach the surface. So expect a dry night with increasing sky cover. A cold night with temperatures reaching the teens. && .SHORT TERM /6 AM THIS MORNING THROUGH 6 PM THURSDAY/... * Much milder Wednesday with considerably less wind than today Wednesday... What a difference 24 hours can make sometimes especially in early March. The progressive pattern will allow 925T to moderate to near 0C by late Wednesday afternoon. This coupled with westerly flow will allow afternoon highs to recover well into the 40s to perhaps near 50 across RI/SE MA. There will be a bit of a breeze with some westerly gusts between 20 and 25 mph, but certainly nothing like today. That coupled with temperatures around 20 degrees milder will make quite a difference for outdoor activities by Wednesday afternoon. Wednesday night... Another cold front will cross the region Wednesday night, but the magnitude of the cold air will be nothing like today. Other than perhaps a brief flurry or two in the Berks, dry weather will prevail given the lack of moisture/forcing. Low temps by daybreak Thursday will mainly be in the 20s. && .LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/... Highlights * Below average temperatures move in for late week and into the weekend. Average high temperatures are in the low 40s for this time of year in our major metropolitan areas. * Little to no chance of precipitation over the long term forecast period. * Model consensus that a warm up is on the way early next week, but the exact timing is still up in the air. Thursday Night and Friday... A more seasonable Thursday, with highs in the low 40s south and east and upper 30s north and west, before a cold front slides through the region. Any precipitable water present in the column, already on the order of hundredths, will be met by extremely low dewpoints, in the single digits, making the possibility of precipitation extremely low. 925mb winds Thursday evening suggest there is a possibility for gusty winds to return to the region, especially across the maritimes, the high elevations of the Worcester hills and the downslope of the Berkshires. CONSAll guidance was blended into the NBM data to enhance the wind potential across the maritimes. On Friday, temperatures take a dive back into the 30s. Low temperatures on both Thursday and Friday night will bottom out in the 10s north and west to the mid 20s south and east across the Cape and Islands. Saturday and Sunday... Sunny skies will prevail for the weekend, and temperatures will remain below average, topping out in the 30s, slightly warmer on Sunday compared to Saturday. Widespread 10s north and west and 20s south and east for lows. Light W/NW winds except across the maritimes where stronger gusts are likely on Saturday. Early next week... Guidance suggests that we return to seasonable temperatures on Monday, with highs in upper 30s to low 40s across the area. Beyond Monday, there is a strong signal that both the NAO and AO teleconnections will trend positive. Given that the end of the forecast period is still five days away, there is good model consensus that the region will warm to the mid to upper 50s starting next Tuesday. The next shot for considerable precipitation is after our forecast period ends. && .AVIATION /06Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/... Forecaster Confidence Levels. Low - less than 30 percent. Moderate - 30 to 60 percent. High - greater than 60 percent. Early morning...High Confidence. VFR. Area of 10,000 foot cloud bases will cross southern New England from 2 AM to 8 AM. Today through Thursday...High Confidence. VFR. West southwest winds gusting to 20 kt today diminish tonight, then turn from the northwest on Thursday. Northwest winds gust to 25 kt Thursday. KBOS TAF...High confidence. VFR. KBDL TAF...High confidence. VFR. Outlook /Thursday Night through Sunday/... VFR. Breezy. && .MARINE... Tonight through Wednesday night...High Confidence. Winds continue to diminish as low pressure moves farther off to the northeast. Winds have diminished below 34 kt on the inner waters, so gale headlines have been dropped in favor of Small Craft Advisories. Gales continue on the outer waters overnight. Westerly wind gusts of 20 to 30 knots are anticipated on Wednesday with the strongest of the winds across the southern waters. Winds shift to the NW Wed night behind another cold front. Small craft headlines will be needed Wed into Wed night for many waters once the Gale Headlines expire this evening. Outlook /Thursday Night through Sunday/... Thursday: Low risk for Small Craft Advisory winds with gusts up to 30 kt. Local rough seas. Thursday Night: Moderate risk for Small Craft Advisory winds with local gusts up to 30 kt. Areas of rough seas. Chance of freezing spray. Friday through Friday Night: Moderate risk for Small Craft Advisory winds with gusts up to 25 kt. Areas of rough seas. Chance of freezing spray. Saturday: Low risk for Small Craft Advisory winds with gusts up to 25 kt. Seas up to 5 ft. && .BOX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES... CT...None. MA...None. RI...None. MARINE...Small Craft Advisory until 7 PM EST this evening for ANZ232>235-237. Small Craft Advisory until 1 PM EST this afternoon for ANZ230- 231-236-251.
