NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Taunton Massachusetts 
1032 am EDT Sat Jul 4 2015 


Synopsis... 
low pressure races south of New England this afternoon bringing 
scattered pockets of light rain. High pressure returns Sunday and 
lingers through Monday. A transition period is likely middle next 
week...with a chance for showers and thunderstorms. 


&& 


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


Two areas of concern...one over Cape Cod and islands and the 
second over western mass. Low pressure offshore has spread 
scattered showers over the islands and could similarly effect Cape 
Cod this morning. Scattered showers will be over or just south of 
the islands through afternoon. The second area is moving northeast 
from New York into western mass and western CT. Observed precipitation 
upstream has been light...roughly .01 to .10 inches. Dew points 
have moistened in New England but will be dry enough to eat away 
at the precipitation. Right entrance region of upper jet is moving into the 
region...which should support rain/showers for a few hours. The 
chance of .01 inches in western mass is reasonably high...enough 
to boost probability of precipitation to 65-70 percent for the afternoon. Parts of northern CT 
may also be affected. Back edge of the light rain trends across 
western mass around 3-4 PM. 


Late morning temperatures are running about 2-4f lower than forecast. We 
have made adjustments lower by a couple of degrees for the hourly 
temperatures and in overall maximum surface temperature for the day. 


&& 


Short term /6 PM this evening through 6 PM Sunday/... 
the coastal low moves farther offshore this evening...moving south 
of Nova Scotia late tonight. This should bring any rainfall to an 
end late this evening. The supporting upper trough moves east of 
US by morning. This should bring a clearing trend after midnight 
with winds turning northwest. 


Weak high pressure moves into southern New England from the south 
Sunday. This should mean dry weather with higher temperatures. 


&& 


Long term /Sunday night through Friday/... 
highlights... 


* high pressure and warming conditions into early next week. 
* Unsettled conditions return middle-late next week. 


Overview and model preferences...with 04.00z model guidance 
coming in...there is better agreement with the middle and long term 
than previous runs...although typical uncertainty remains in the 
long term. Strong ridging early in the week will give way to 
mainly zonal flow on the SW quadrant of a strong northern stream vortex 
developing across north central Canada. The flattening wave will 
arrive middle week...with high precipitable waters  and instability in Tow which may 
need to be watched. There are timing issues...especially regarding 
the influence of the ridge of high pressure for Tuesday...but with better 
agreement in this round of guidance a blend of operational models 
will work well as a baseline. 


Details... 


Sun night into Monday night...warm ridging builds across southern New 
England with high pressure at the surface. Mainly dry weather prevails with 
moderating highs/lows as 850 mb temperatures increase to between +12c and 
+14c by late Monday. This suggests highs mainly in 80s across the 
region. 


Tuesday...upper level wave will be approaching from the west. Models 
indicate increasing moisture as precipitable waters  approach 2 Standard deviations 
above normal with k-values over 30. A warm front will be the 
initial surface reflection of this wave. However...soundings support 
the possibility of high pressure remaining in control through much of 
Tuesday. Therefore...chance for afternoon rain showers/T-storm with the warm 
frontal approach may be quite low to near zero the further east one 
GOES. In fact...the best axis of surface cape/Theta-E ridge is mainly 
west of the Massachusetts/New York border. Therefore...chance probability of precipitation west will be lowered 
to slight chance to none probability of precipitation further east. Will include thunder with 
this forecast given the favorable parameters. 


Wednesday...as previous forecaster noted...this is where the model 
solution divergence begins to show more significantly. Mainly with 
the timing of a cold frontal passage. GFS remains progressive 
while European model (ecmwf)/CMC continues to linger as the front begins to 
parallel the zonal flow developing aloft. Will continue with the 
chance and slight chance probability of precipitation from the the previous forecast since 
the convergent boundary remains in place. Soundings do support 
some surface based cape exceeding 1000j/kg and high k-values...so will 
continue to include ts...but given the lacking shear...remain 
somewhat dubious of severe chances at this time. 


Thursday...the uncertainty remains as the cold front continues to push 
further southeast...albeit slowly. Will gradually reduce probability of precipitation from 
north-S during the day...but will have to wait before we can nail down 
timing for the late week. 


Friday and Sat...uncertainty remains but with zonal flow...a series 
of ridge/trough Couplets is likely to yield periods of 
dry/potentially wet periods are likely. Interestingly...with southern 
New England on the ridge periphery may need to monitor for mesoscale convective system 
steering flow as well. Still way too many variables to nail 
anything down...but seasonable temperatures and low to none probability of precipitation should 
cover the spread. 


&& 


Aviation /15z Saturday through Wednesday/... 
forecaster confidence levels... 


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


Short-term /through Friday night/... 


Today...high confidence. 
Mainly VFR. A spot shower is possible through early evening...with 
the highest risk being along the immediate S coast later today. 
Very low chance of brief MVFR conditions in these showers. Winds 
will be generally light...with sea breezes likely on coastlines. 


Tonight...high confidence. 
Rain over southeast mass/Rhode Island should taper off during the first 
part of the night. MVFR conditions possible in any areas of 
rain/fog...otherwise VFR with cloud bases lifting/clearing. 


Sunday...high confidence. VFR. 


Kbos terminal...high confidence in taf. 


Kbdl terminal...high confidence in taf. 


Outlook /Sunday night through Wednesday/... 


Sun night into Monday...high confidence. VFR with high pressure. Sea 
breezes likely Monday. 


Tuesday and Wednesday...moderate confidence. First a warm front Tuesday...then a 
cold front Wednesday may provide a focus for occasional showers and 
thunderstorms each day with periodic MVFR or lower conditions. 
Otherwise VFR. Some fog possible during the overnights. 


&& 


Marine... 
forecaster confidence levels... 


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


Moderate confidence today and tonight...high confidence Sunday. 


Low pressure developing along the middle Atlantic coast will pass 
over or south of the southern outer waters this afternoon and 
evening. This will bring lower visibilities in rain to the southern 
waters with east winds increasing to 15-20 knots. Farther north 
the winds will become east...but with lighter speeds. As this low 
pressure moves off to the east...winds will diminish and turn 
north overnight. Weak high pressure builds over the waters 
Sunday. 


Persistent winds will build seas across the outer southern coastal 
waters. There has been a persistent signal the past few days for 5 
feet seas. While marginal...decided to issue a Small Craft Advisory 
due to this persistent signal. 


Outlook /Sunday night through Wednesday/... 


Sun night into Monday...high confidence. Any lingering swell recedes 
below 5 feet Sun night. High pressure then brings quiet boating weather 
to the waters through Monday. 


Tuesday and Wednesday...moderate confidence. A warm front on Tuesday...then a cold 
front on Wednesday will be approaching from the west. While winds should 
generally remain out of the S-se...wind speeds should remain below 
Small Craft Advisory thresholds. Seas is also likely to remain 
below small craft thresholds. Some showers/thunderstorms and/or 
fog are possible over the waters. 


&& 


Box watches/warnings/advisories... 
CT...none. 
Massachusetts...none. 
Rhode Island...none. 
Marine...Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas from 2 am to 5 PM EDT 
Sunday for anz254. 
Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas from 8 PM this evening 
to 5 PM EDT Sunday for anz255. 
Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas from 5 PM this
