NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Taunton Massachusetts 
1014 am EST Friday Jan 30 2015 


Synopsis... 
low pressure will weaken over southern Quebec as a secondary low 
develops along the southern New England coast this afternoon. This 
low will intensify over the Gulf of Maine by tonight bringing 
periods of snow. Blustery and very cold conditions are expected 
this weekend. Low pressure will pass south of New England Sunday 
night and Monday...possibly bringing another accumulating 
snowfall. Cold conditions will continue through most of next 
week. Yet another low may develop around next Wednesday or Thursday with 
a threat for snow...though low confidence. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 PM this evening/... 


10 am update... 


Two areas of precipitation this morning...one over eastern New York state 
associated with lead short wave...with a second and blossoming area 
of precipitation over eastern CT/Rhode Island and eastern Massachusetts. This second area is 
associated with secondary short wave energy diving southeast into 
the middle Atlantic region. This will be the trend for today with precipitation 
focused over Rhode Island and eastern Massachusetts with precipitation tapering off over CT and 
western-central Massachusetts as dry slot approaches from the southwest. 


So with this first batch of precipitation expecting a coating to an inch in 
most locations with a low risk of a few spots picking up 2". However 
with temperatures around freezing most roadways will remain wet..except 
some secondary roads may become snow covered. Overall a low impact 
event. Across the South Coast of Massachusetts and Rhode Island boundary layer will be 
warm enough to support rain or a mix of rain and snow. However late 
today as secondary low develops south and east of the region a wind 
shift to the north will change rain back over the snow late in the 
day. 


Will leave headlines as is for now but new 12z NAM suggest even less 
snowfall tonight as comma-head may develop too far east with high 
risk for 2+ snowfall over Cape Ann and Cape Cod with less westward. 
However will await full 12z GFS and European model (ecmwf) before dropping any 
headlines. Thus previous forecast in good shape for now. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through 6 PM Saturday/... 
tonight into Saturday... 


Negative tilt trough evolves into a closed middle level over southern New 
England this evening then it jumps to the Gulf of Maine later 
tonight. The surface low deepens rapidly tonight in the Gulf of Maine 
but likely remains a bit too far offshore to rotate heavy snow 
back across southern New England as the heavier precipitation will remain to the north 
over Maine. However...a robust comma head will develop to the 
west of the middle level low tonight and extend across eastern new 
eng which will likely bring bands of snow to the region. 


The westward extent of the snow tonight will likely be across 
central Massachusetts and Rhode Island with the main focus across east Massachusetts including the 
cape/islands. Mainly dry weather expected in the CT valley. 
Models backed off a bit on the quantitative precipitation forecast so we have lowered snow accumulate a 
tad...but have to watch NE Massachusetts and Cape Cod which will be closest 
to the best forcing. 


Snow lingers across east Massachusetts into Sat morning...before gradually 
moving out. The Outer Cape will be last to dry out around midday. 
Otherwise...clearing skies will develop from west to east late 
morning through the afternoon but windy and very Cold Saturday 
with highs mostly in the teens. 


We kept the Winter Storm Warning for Essex County but downgraded 
Middlesex County to an advisory. Expanded the advisory to Cape 
Cod which should get into a decent band of snow tonight. 
Otherwise...dropped the advisory for NE CT...north Rhode Island and adjacent southeast 
Massachusetts where snow amounts should fall shy of advisory criteria. 


Total snow accumulate of 4-7 expected across NE Massachusetts with the maximum 
amounts in Essex County...with 2-4 inches central Massachusetts to east coastal 
Massachusetts including Cape Cod. An inch or 2 possible near the S coast. 


In addition to the snowfall tonight...northwest winds will 
increase late tonight into Sat with gusts to 40 to 45 miles per hour as low 
intensifies east of Massachusetts. Low probability wind gusts could reach 50 miles per hour 
near the S coast and wind advisories may eventually be needed. 


Very cold air moves in tonight into Saturday combined with gusty 
northwest winds will result in dangerously cold wind chills of 10 to 20 
below zero in central and western Massachusetts and portions of north CT where 
wind chill advisories have been issued. Wind chills 5 to 10 below 
in the coastal plain. 


&& 


Long term /Saturday night through Thursday/... 
headlines... 


* cold conditions through Sunday as winds diminish 
* low pressure looks to pass S of New England Sunday night and 
Monday with accumulating snow possible 
* cold conditions continue through most of next week 
* another low is possible around Wednesday or Thursday...low confidence 


Overview... 
overall...noting a rather progressive upper level pattern across 
the lower 48 which will keep weather systems moving...but there is 
also the potential for a couple more snow events on the horizon. 


Details... 


Saturday night-Sunday...high pressure moves off the middle Atlantic coast as 
a ridge pokes north into the region. Northwest winds will remain blustery 
early Sat night...then will diminish. A dry cold front will push 
across the region Sunday morning...bringing large high pressure out of 
south central Canada into the northern Great Lakes. Noting a 
digging 500 mb short wave working east out of the middle Mississippi Valley 
as surface low develops. Will likely see clouds pushing in during 
Sunday. 


Sunday night-Monday...big questions with low pressure passing S of New 
England. First...more cold Arctic air works across the region...so 
temperatures will be rather cold. However...most models and several 
ensembles signaling low pressure will pass close to just S of 40n 
latitude...possibly passing near the 40n/70w benchmark. Noting 
the 00z GFS and European model (ecmwf) were more in line this morning in spreading 
a swath of quantitative precipitation forecast across the region while high pressure extends into 
Quebec. Looks like a set up for more accumulating snowfall. 
Current forecast suggests around 0.3 to 0.5 inches quantitative precipitation forecast and...with 
the cold air in place...could see snow to liquid ratios of around 
15:1. 


Exact timing is still in question though as the pattern remains 
progressive...but will be monitoring this development very 
closely. 


Tuesday...another high crosses the region during Tuesday with 
more cold air working in. 


Wednesday-Thursday...models and ensembles continue to signal low 
pressure and cold front moving out of the Great Lakes Wednesday night...then 
moving offshore Thursday morning. Low pressure may develop along this 
front...possibly bringing more southern stream moisture up the 
coast. Way too early to tell how the northern and southern streams 
will interact...low confidence. 


&& 


Aviation /15z Friday through Tuesday/... 
forecaster confidence levels... 


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


Short term.../through Saturday/...moderate confidence. 


10 am update... 


Snow exits western Massachusetts-CT and becomes focused over eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island 
until about 18z. Precipitation mainly rain South Coast of Massachusetts and Rhode Island. So 
mainly MVFR conditions but IFR at times. Earlier discussion below. 


===================================================================== 


Today...a mixture of conditions early this morning...mainly 
MVFR/IFR in areas of snow...with rain cape/islands. Snow tapers 
off and ends CT valley to the Rhode Island coast during the afternoon with 
mainly MVFR ceilings...but periods of snow continue central and east Massachusetts. 
Gusty northwest winds to 25 knots developing across CT valley by late 
afternoon. 


Tonight...main focus for areas of snow and MVFR/IFR conditions 
will be across east Massachusetts...with VFR CT valley. Gusty northwest winds develop 
from west to east in the evening with gusts to 30-40 knots after 
midnight. 


Saturday...lingering MVFR/IFR in areas of light snow across east Massachusetts 
and cape/islands early...otherwise improving to VFR with clearing 
skies from west to east. Gusty northwest winds to 35-40 knots. 


Kbos taf...moderate confidence. 


Kbdl taf...moderate confidence. 


Outlook /Saturday night through Tuesday/... 


Saturday night-Sunday...high confidence. VFR. Northwest winds gusting to 
25-35 knots Saturday...highest along the coast. Lighter winds 
Sunday. 


Sunday night-Monday...low confidence. Developing low pressure looks to 
pass S of New England with accumulating snow possible. Could see 
IFR conditions for a time...especially S of the Mass Pike. 
Conditions may improve early Monday night 


Tuesday...moderate confidence. Mainly VFR. May see gusty northwest winds 
early. 


&& 


Marine... 
forecaster confidence levels... 


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


Short term /through Saturday/...high confidence. 


Today...southerly winds will shift to west then northwest during Friday 
afternoon...with gusts to 25 knots developing across Rhode Island coastal 
waters by late afternoon. 


Tonight and Saturday...as low pressure intensifies over western Gulf 
of Maine...gale force northwest winds will develop. Gusts to 40-45 knots 
expected late tonight into Sat. The gusty winds and rough seas 
combined with Arctic air moving into the region will result in 
areas of moderate freezing spray over the nearshore waters so 
freezing spray advisories were issued. Snow reduces visibility over 
eastern waters tonight into Sat morning. 


Outlook /Saturday night through Tuesday/...moderate confidence 
through Sunday...then low confidence Sun night-Tuesday. 


Saturday night...northwest winds gusting to 35-40 knots early...then should 
start to diminish around or after midnight. Seas up to 10-14 feet on 
the outer waters early...then slowly subsiding but remaining well 
above 5 feet. Light to moderate freezing spray. 


Sunday...expect winds and seas remain at small craft levels. 
Light freezing spray likely. 


Sunday night-Tuesday...highly dependent on strength and track of 
developing low pressure south of the region. Worse conditions 
would be Monday with slow improvement on Tuesday.
