NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Taunton Massachusetts 
155 PM EDT Tuesday Apr 21 2015 


Synopsis... 


A cold front will bring scattered showers...and perhaps even an 
isolated thunderstorm or two...Wednesday afternoon and evening. 
Unseasonably cool weather follows Thursday through this weekend with 
just a spot shower from time to time. 


&& 


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


155 PM update... 


An abundance of clouds covered southern New England at middle 
afternoon...but there were peeks of sun especially across southeast 
Massachusetts. Cold front was crossing southeast Massachusetts...where some locations 
have reached into the lower 70s. To the northwest of the 
front...temperatures were mainly in the upper 50s to middle 60s. Over the 
next hour or two...may see temperatures climb a more degrees across the 
interior...while areas across southeast Massachusetts fall a few degrees behind 
the cold front. 


Earlier isolated showers have dissipated and expect mainly dry 
weather through the afternoon...although can/T rule out an isolated 
spot shower. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through 6 am Wednesday/... 


A shortwave will be approaching from the west...bringing a chance 
for some showers to portions of western Massachusetts by daybreak Wednesday. 
With a cold front having already passed through our region late 
this afternoon...models do not show much rainfall as instability 
is rather limited. Much of tonight should remain dry across 
southern New England with seasonable minimum temperatures. 


&& 


Long term /Wednesday through Monday/... 
highlights... 


* scattered showers Wednesday with a low risk of thunder/small hail 
* seasonably mild temperatures Wednesday 
* unseasonably cool Thursday-sun with a spot shower or two at times 


Overview... 


Overall the 12z guidance is in good agreement within the medium and 
long range. However exact timing and strength of each system still 
needs to be worked out. Upper level low will continue to dominate 
the region through the extended...pinwheeling between the Great 
Lakes and New England. This system will yield to a more showery and 
cooler forecast for the rest of the week and into the weekend. 


Details... 


* Wednesday and Wednesday night...moderate confidence. 


Strong shortwave will move through the flow on Wednesday developing 
a surface low across Hudson River valley and into southern New 
England. This low will bring scattered rain showers and isolated thunder 
to the area by the afternoon hours. Appears we may try to warm 
sector allowing surface temperatures to reach into the low to middle 60s. This 
will steepen the lapse rates to around 7-8 c/km as 500 mb temperatures are 
-24c. Model guidance is also indicating that some surface Cape May 
develop which will help in thunderstorm development. In fact we 
could see small hail/graupel as freezing heights will be low 
thanks to the cold pool. Still a lot of details to work out but 
something to watch in the coming day. 




* Thursday into Monday...moderate confidence. 


Strong cut off low will continue to spin over the northeast during 
this time period. New England could see a several waves develop and 
push through the region. However may see a lot of diurnal cumulus and 
diurnal showers developing rather than widespread rain. These 
showers will be diurnally driven as cold pool aloft will be overhead 
steepening the lapse rates. Areas that have the best chance for 
any precipitation will be north of the Pike...closer to the low pressure. 


Lastly expect temperatures to be about 5-10 f below average for the week 
thanks to the cooler temperatures aloft via the cold pool. In fact some 
areas may not see the 60s for the rest of the week and into the 
weekend. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Tuesday through Sunday/... 
forecaster confidence levels... 


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


Short-term /this afternoon through Tuesday night/... 


This afternoon...high confidence. Any left over MVFR 
ceilings should improve to VFR by late afternoon. The exception will be 
Nantucket where low clouds and dense fog still covered the region. 
Should see conditions improve in that region over the next few hours 
behind the cold front. 


Tonight...high confidence in mainly VFR conditions. 


Tuesday and Tuesday night...high confidence that VFR conditions 
dominate. However...a cold front will bring a band of scattered 
showers Wednesday afternoon into Wednesday evening. A few isolated 
thunderstorms can not be ruled out...which may contain localized 
gusty winds/small hail graupel but confidence in that is low. 


Kbos taf...high confidence in mainly VFR through Tuesday morning. 


Kbdl taf...high confidence in mainly VFR through Tuesday morning. 


Outlook...Wednesday through Saturday... 


Wednesday...moderate confidence. A cold front will bring a round of 
scattered showers mainly Wednesday afternoon/early evening. Low risk for 
even a few rumbles of thunder and perhaps small hail/graupel with 
the heaviest showers. 


Thu/Fri/Sat...high confidence. Mainly VFR. Conditions could lower to 
MVFR quickly in a brief diurnally driven shower or two. 


&& 


Marine... 
forecaster confidence levels... 


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


Short term /through tonight/... 


Winds have diminished below Small Craft Advisory criteria...but seas remain above 
thresholds across the outer-waters. Therefore...small craft 
headlines continue into tonight. Main concern through middle afternoon 
will be areas of fog especially from Nantucket Sound and into our 
southeast waters. Expect gradual improvement through the afternoon. 


Outlook...Wednesday through Saturday... 


Wednesday...high confidence. Modest west to southwest flow expected 
ahead of a cold front...but speeds will be near Small Craft Advisory especially across the 
near shore waters. A few showers Wednesday afternoon and evening with a 
low risk of an isolated thunderstorm with small hail. 


Thursday through Saturday...high confidence. Modest westerly flow 
as a result of closed low pressure across Quebec. Enough cold 
advection over the waters will be present to generate periods of 25 
knot wind gusts. Marginal Small Craft Advisory seas expected across the outer-waters 
at times...but with good visibility. 


&& 


Box watches/warnings/advisories... 
CT...none. 
Massachusetts...none. 
Rhode Island...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory until 6 PM EDT Wednesday for anz235-237- 
250-254>256. 
Small Craft Advisory until noon EDT Wednesday for anz251.
