NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Taunton Massachusetts 
202 PM EDT Thursday Apr 24 2014 


Synopsis... 
windy and dry conditions today...then winds diminish tonight and 
Friday as high pressure builds into the region. Low pressure will 
bring rain Friday night into Saturday...then mainly dry and 
seasonable conditions Sunday into Monday as high pressure returns. 


&& 


Near term /until 7 PM this evening/... 


2 PM update... 


Not much change from previous update with northwest winds gusting 
up to 45 miles per hour. The exception was Nashua with a gust to 51 miles per hour 
/44kt/. Thus Wind Advisory remains in effect until 7 PM. Temperatures 
climbing into the mu50s except low 50s higher terrain. Few 
locations will likely touch 60 briefly later this afternoon across 
eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island including Boston to Providence. 


&& 


Short term /7 PM this evening through 6 PM Friday/... 
tonight... 
gusty winds lingering into the evening...then winds diminish as 
pressure gradient relaxes with high pressure approaching from the 
west. Clear skies and diminishing wind will result in a cold night 
with mins middle 20s to lower 30s across much of the region...except 
upper 30s bos/pvd and Outer Cape/islands. 


Friday... 
high pressure moves across new eng then to the east by days end. Next 
shortwave will be lifting NE from the Ohio Valley which will 
result in an increase in middle/high clouds in the afternoon from the 
west. It will remain dry as deep moisture transport associated with 
the low level jet remains to the west through 00z. It will be a 
milder day in developing warm air advection pattern. Soundings 
show mixing to 850 mb where temperatures increase to 2-3c around 18z. 
This supports temperatures into the low and middle 60s...but 50s along the S 
coast due to southerly wind. 


&& 


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


* unsettled but seasonable weather Friday night into Saturday 
* uncertainty higher than normal for next week 


24/00z models are in decent agreement through much of the long term. 
There are of course some discrepancies towards the end of the 
period. A double barreled low pressure system will affect 
southern New England Friday night and Saturday with some 
uncertainty in how close the southern low moves to the southern 
New England coast. The European model (ecmwf) is farthest from the coast...passing 
over the 40/70 benchmark and the NAM is closest passing over 
Nantucket. The European model (ecmwf) has trended north since the 12z run so went 
with a NAM/GFS blend for this portion of the forecast. Beyond 
this...models are struggling with a developing blocking pattern. 
Models are quick to move towards a more progressive pattern. 
Ensembles show the blocking pattern a bit better though there are 
differences amongst the members as to whether we will be more 
influenced by ridging or troughing. Between this and the models 
tendency to rush a return to a more progressive pattern...have a 
lower confidence than normal for next week. 


Friday night and Saturday...double barrel low pressure moves east 
across southern New England. The northern low moves through Quebec 
while the southern low passes south of southern New England. The 
European model (ecmwf) is the farthest south with the southern low while the NAM is 
the farthest north. Expect scattered showers across southern New 
England with this system. Steep middle level rates provide enough 
instability for thunderstorms to occur and as such have mentioned 
thunder in the grids. 


Sunday into early next week...as stated above a more blocked pattern 
looks to develop with middle level troughing over the NE bringing 
unsettled weather to the region. Where exactly the blocked pattern 
sets up will determine what sort of weather we are looking at. Some 
models have a pronounced easterly flow which would result in 
unseasonably cool temperatures and overcast skies across much of the 
area. However...a shift could result in more seasonable weather. 


&& 


Aviation /18z Thursday through Tuesday/... 
low...less than 30 percent. 
Moderate...30 to 60 percent. 
High...greater than 60 percent. 


Short term /through 12z Saturday/...high confidence 


Through 00z...gusty northwest winds 30-40 knots continue then beginning to 
diminish around sunset. VFR as well. 


After 00z...VFR with a diminishing wind. 


Friday...VFR with light winds...seabreezes along the coast. 


Friday night...VFR to start then quickly lowering to MVFR with 
rain overspreading western CT/Massachusetts 00z-06z then into Rhode Island and eastern 
Massachusetts 06z-12z. Low risk of IFR toward 12z Sat. East-southeast winds 
may increasing up to 25 knots toward 12z Sat across Rhode Island and eastern 
Massachusetts. 


Kbos terminal...high confidence in taf. 


Kbdl terminal...high confidence in taf. 


Outlook...Saturday through Monday... 


Moderate confidence. Mainly VFR. Brief periods of MVFR/IFR 
conditions in rain showers/fog. 


Sunday and Monday...low confidence. VFR. 


&& 


Marine... 
forecaster confidence levels... 


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


Short term /through Friday/...high confidence. 


10 am update... 


No major changes from previous forecast. Strongest winds near 
shore given warmer land temperatures /55-60/ than ocean temperatures /low 40s/. 
Earlier discussion below. 
--------------------------------------------------------------- 


Northwest gales expected through today with gusts to 35-40 knots. Winds 
diminish through tonight as gradient relaxes with light winds on 
Friday as high pressure moves across the waters. 


Outlook...Friday night through Monday... 


Friday night and Saturday...low to moderate confidence. S winds 
and seas increase as a cold front approaches the waters. 
Visibilities may be reduced at times in rain showers. Small craft 
advisories may be necessary on the outer waters. Winds shift to 
the northwest as the cold front crosses the waters. 


Sunday and Monday...moderate confidence. North/northwest winds and seas 
generally remain below small craft criteria but conditions are 
close. Small craft advisories may be needed. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
10 am update... 


No major changes from earlier discussion. Previous forecast 
matching up nicely with current conditions. 
----------------------------------------------------------- 


Conditions today are favorable for fire weather headlines with 
min relative humidity 15-25 percent and strong wind gusts to 40 miles per hour. 
However...recent rainfall in central and eastern new eng will 
preclude red flag conditions in these areas. However...less 
rainfall occurred in the CT valley and after collaboration with 
okx/aly we have decided to issue a red flag warning for north CT. 


&& 


Box watches/warnings/advisories... 
CT...red flag warning until 8 PM EDT this evening for ctz002>004. 
Massachusetts...Wind Advisory until 7 PM EDT this evening for maz004>007- 
012>021-026. 
New Hampshire...Wind Advisory until 7 PM EDT this evening for nhz011-012-015.
