NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Taunton Massachusetts 
213 PM EDT sun Mar 29 2015 


Synopsis... 
dry weather through tonight then a cold front sweeps down from 
Canada and crosses New England Monday. Fast moving area of low 
pressure passes south of New England Tuesday night and Wednesday 
bringing more light rain and/or snow showers. A more significant 
storm may approach late in the week. 


&& 


Near term /through tonight/... 
215 PM update...high pressure centered over the Middle-Atlantic 
States has brought sunny skies and dry weather to southern New 
England. Temperatures are slowly climbing into the middle to upper 
30s. Should see a few locations hit 40 by the end of the day. 


Tonight...cold front and upper trough moving through the Great 
Lakes will push an upper level ridge through southern New England 
overnight. Mostly quiet overnight...with clouds building in from 
the west late tonight towards Monday morning. Temperatures should 
be a few degrees warmer than last night but will remain in the 20s 
for most locations. 


&& 


Short term /Monday through Monday night/... 
a cold front and upper trough swing across New England on Monday. 
Expect showers along/ahead of the front. Support for showers 
should start near sunrise in the west and middle to late morning in 
the east. The cold frontal passage should be midday/early 
afternoon west and middle to late afternoon east. 


Temperature profiles allow for snow initially across the 
northwestern zones but expect warming during the morning that will 
change this to rain. Any snow accumulations should be limited to 
an inch or less. 


Cold advection mixing behind the front May Draw upon 35 knot winds 
aloft bringing them to the surface in middle to late afternoon gusts. 
We will trend forecast gusts higher with this package but stay a 
little below this full potential...roughly 25 to 30 knots. 


Monday night...cold advection continues with excellent mixing in 
place. Expect gusty westerly winds to continue through the night 
so have increased winds and wind gusts. Overnight lows will be in 
the 20s to low 30s. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday through Sunday/... 
highlights... 


* Alberta clipper moves through Tuesday night into Wednesday 
* moderating Spring-like temperatures late this week 
* increasing chances for precipitation sometime during the Easter weekend 


Overview... 


Northwest flow to start over the region Monday night lasting into 
next weekend. Several shortwaves will be riding through this flow 
allowing for the active pattern to continue. 00z model guidance is 
in good agreement some discrepancies on the Tuesday night system and 
again on the Thursday/Friday timeframe. 00z NAM seems to be the 
farthest north on the Alberta clipper moving Tuesday night compared 
to the rest of the guidance. Threw the NAM out and did a blend of 
the GFS/CMC which gives a good run in the middle. For the end of the 
week...the ec becomes more amplified compared to the progressive GFS 
and has slowed down by 24 hours. Trended this portion of the 
forecast towards wpc as there is to much uncertain still. 
Temperatures will remain at or below average for this long term 
expect by the Thursday into Sat timeframe where a brief warm-up...may 
occur. 


Details... 


* Monday night into Tuesday...high confidence. 


Cold front will push offshore by Monday night allowing for cold air advection to 
stream into the region. Expect westerly winds to remain gusty 
overnight...near 25-30 miles per hour. 


Tuesday will be mostly dry as southern New England is squeezed 
between two systems. Winds will continue to gust through the day. 
Temperatures will be in the middle to upper 40s but with the wind...it will 
feel like the upper 30s. Clouds will be on the increase throughout 
the day as next system approaches. 


* Tuesday night...moderate confidence. 


Next shortwave will quickly dive through the flow from Canada and 
move just south of southern New England. The latest ec has trended 
towards the GFS in pushing this system farther south impacting the 
mid-Atlantic. However the NAM drags the clipper right over southern 
New England where the CMC is close to the ec ensembles. Overall 
believe that locations along and south of the Pike have the best 
chance to see precipitation. Models are similar on the timing bringing 
precipitation in overnight and pushing out by late Wednesday morning. This will 
allow for temperatures to be cool enough for snow showers. Will need to 
continue to watch the trends with this system since it could produce 
a quick 1-2 inches of snow across the area. 


* Wednesday into Thursday...moderate confidence. 


Weak ridge will build behind the clipper system Wednesday into Wednesday night. 
This will allow for strong high pressure to build over southern New England. Latest 
trends in the guidance is most of the day on Thursday will stay dry 
as high pressure is slow to break down. Temperatures will be on the 
increase with middle 40s on Wednesday and low 50s on Thursday as warm air advection 
increase ahead of approaching system. 


* Thursday night into Saturday...low confidence in timing. Moderate 
confidence in precipitation occurring. 


High pressure will move offshore as a low pressure system moves 
across southern Canada. This system will drag a cold front across 
the area either Thursday night/GFS or Friday/ec.. appears there 
could be a few waves that may develop along this front so decided to 
blanket this time frame with chance probability of precipitation and hopefully within the next 
24 hours can put better detail into the forecast. Regardless appears 
temperatures on Friday will be above average allowing from spots to finally 
get about 60f. Temperatures will turn colder behind the frontal passage by 
Sat or sun.

High confidence. 


High pressure builds over the waters today bringing diminishing

initially on the exposed waters and lingering 5 foot seas on the 
outer waters late in the day. Small craft advisories will continue 
on most waters this morning but should expire during the afternoon 
and evening as the seas subside. 


Cold front approaches on Monday...swinging across the waters 
during the afternoon and evening. Expect south-southwest winds to 
increase during the day Monday with potential frequent gusts 
25-30 knots. Seas will also build with 5-8 foot heights possible 
by afternoon. Small Craft Advisory may be needed again at that 
time. 


Outlook...Monday night through Thursday...moderate confidence. 


Tuesday...high pressure will be over the area however winds will be 
gusty reaching near 30kts. This will keep seas up above Small Craft Advisory. 


Tuesday night...quick moving system will move over southern waters. 
This will keep both seas and winds above Small Craft Advisory on Tuesday night. 


Wednesday into Thursday...high pressure will follow on Wednesday allowing 
for seas and winds to relax.
