NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Taunton Massachusetts 
918 PM EST Monday Feb 8 2016 


Synopsis... 


The bulk of the steady light snow should come to an end after 
midnight as distant ocean storm moves even further away from the 
region. Then a broad area of low pressure will setup over southern 
New England Tuesday and Wednesday maintaining clouds and scattered snow 
showers. An Arctic cold front will cross the region 
Thursday...followed by bitterly cold air into the weekend. 


&& 


Near term /until 6 am Tuesday morning/... 


915 PM update... 


Despite ocean storm moving even further away from our 
region...light snow continues to fall over the vast majority of 
southern New England. This appears to be the result of a shortwave 
embedded in the upper level flow. Overall...most places may pickup 
another half to 1 inch of snow...before the bulk of it comes to an 
end after midnight. A few snow showers may linger through 
daybreak...particularly from coastal Essex County and onto coastal 
Plymouth County/Cape Cod with some ocean enhancement on north winds. 


Will let winter weather advisories continue through midnight 
with widespread light snow persisting. Temperatures will generally remain 
in the upper teens to lower 20s...but upper 20s to lower 30s across 
the cape/Nantucket with northerly winds blowing off the milder ocean. 


&& 


Short term /6 am Tuesday morning through 6 PM Tuesday/... 
bundle of jet energy over the Ohio Valley this afternoon moves east 
tomorrow and spawns south of New England in the morning with 
surface low tracking again southeast of the benchmark. However this 
system is much weaker than today/S system. So much of its affects 
will remain out over the ocean. However there is enough moist 
cyclonic flow aloft to yield scattered snow showers with activity 
most numerous across CT/Rhode Island and southeast Massachusetts. Could be some oes 
enhancement over Plymouth County and Cape Cod given moist NE flow 
but lapse rates are more marginal tomorrow. 


&& 


Long term /Tuesday night through Monday/... 
highlights... 


* shortwaves bring snow showers and clouds Tuesday night through Thursday 
* cold front Thursday 
* snow showers continue Friday and Sat 
* much colder air moves into southern New England for the weekend 


A complex forecast for the long term. The models are in fairly good 
agreement with the synoptic scale pattern with continued troughing 
over the East Coast and ridging over the western Continental U.S.. differences 
and challenges come in the exact path of the synoptic features... 
including shortwaves...as well as the more mesoscale features. 


Tuesday night and Wednesday...high confidence. 
Multiple shortwaves will move through or near southern New England 
as they rotate around an upper level low in Quebec. This will keep 
overcast skies in place with occasional snow showers expected 
throughout southern New England. Seasonable temperatures expected. 


Thursday and Friday...moderate confidence. 
An upper level trough moves through southern New England. Coupled 
with this is a low pressure system that will move north of the 
region...exact track unknown at this time... bringing an Arctic 
front through the region. Again...this will bring a chance of snow 
showers ahead of the front. Just light amounts expected at this 
time...a dusting to maybe an inch or two. The big story with this 
front will be the strong push of Arctic air moving into the region. 
Temperatures during this time will already be 5 to 10 degrees below 
normal for middle February and the colder air is yet to come. 


This weekend...moderate confidence. 
Not much...if any...precipitation expected. Instead the cold will 
take center stage...along with some bitterly cold wind chills. 
Arctic air continues to seep into southern New England with highs 
expected to be 15-20 degrees below normal. While this is still 
nearly a week out and there is some uncertainty to be had...08/12z 
eps probabilities have an over 80 percent chance of low temperatures 
dropping below zero and over 50 percent chance of low temperatures 
below negative 10 degrees! 


In addition...on Saturday...strong low pressure in the Maritimes 
coupled with an equally strong high pressure in the Great Lakes/Ohio 
Valley region will result in a tight pressure gradient across 
southern New England. This will result in breezy conditions if not 
downright strong winds across the area. But with temperatures as 
cold as they are currently forecast to be...even just slightly breezy 
conditions will result in very cold wind chills. Possibly even 
into Wind Chill Advisory criteria at points during the weekend. 


&& 


Aviation /02z Tuesday through Saturday/... 
forecaster confidence levels... 


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


Tonight... 


Mainly MVFR in periods of light snow with areas of IFR in moderate 
snow at times confined to coastal Plymouth/Cape Cod and the 
islands. North winds will diminish as the night progresses. 


Tuesday... 


Mainly MVFR and dry but can/T rule out a few snow showers. Winds 
generally light and variable. 


Kbos terminal...high confidence in trends...lower confidence in 
exact timing of snow ending. 


Kbdl terminal...high confidence in trends...snow could end an hour 
or two sooner than currently forecast. 


Outlook /Tuesday night through Saturday/...moderate confidence. 


Tuesday night through Wednesday...high confidence. MVFR/VFR 
conditions expected in low clouds and occasional -shsn. Expected 
accumulation less than one inch. 


Thursday through Friday...moderate confidence. Mainly VFR 
conditions. Arctic front moves through the region with gusty northwest 
winds. Chance of -shsn. Expected accumulation less than one inch. 


Saturday...moderate confidence. Mainly VFR conditions. Gusty northwest 
winds continue. 


&& 


Marine... 
forecaster confidence levels... 


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


Short term /through Tuesday/...high confidence. 


Overnight... 


Have converted all gales to small craft headlines as ocean storm 
continues to pull even further away. Northerly Small Craft Advisory wind gusts will 
gradually dissipate toward daybreak. Seas were still between 15 and 
20 feet across our eastern outer-waters. These gradually should 
subside...but left over swell will make this a slow process. 


Tuesday... 


NE winds 15-20 knots as weak low pressure tracks southeast of the 
benchmark. Visibility 1-3 miles at times in snow showers across southern 
ocean waters and eastern Massachusetts waters south of Boston. 


Outlook /Tuesday night through Saturday/...moderate confidence. 


Tuesday night through Wednesday...high confidence. Winds remain 
mainly below small craft criteria. Seas remain elevated as several 
weak low pressure systems move through the waters. Expect small 
craft advisories for seas to be necessary for this period. 


Thursday through Friday...moderate confidence. Northwesterly winds 
and seas increase Thursday as a strong Arctic front approaches and 
then crosses the waters. Seas subside Friday as high pressure 
builds in behind the front. Small craft advisories likely. 


Saturday...moderate confidence. Northwesterly winds continue 
between low pressure in the Maritimes and high pressure in the Great 
Lakes. Small craft advisories likely. 


&& 


Tides/coastal flooding... 
***minor coastal flooding likely with pockets of moderate coastal 
flooding possible along some east and north facing shorelines 
south of Boston tonight*** 


830 PM update... 


Have adjusted waves and surge to fit current trends. Seas are 
still running high and now with longer periods of 11 or 12 
seconds. At 830 PM...seas were running 16 to 18 feet across mass 
Bay and 22 to 25 feet east of Cape Cod and east of Nantucket. The 
surge is also running above guidance and our forecast...having 
risen to 3+ feet at Nantucket and Chatham...and still around 2.4 
feet in Boston. After making wave and surge adjustments...it now 
looks like more widespread minor coastal flooding for the high 
tide near midnight with pockets of moderate possible...especially 
on Nantucket. Still expect both seas and surge to start to subside 
a little by the time of the high tide and so have opted to keep the 
headline as an advisory versus warning. 


Have indicated in the updated coastal flood statement of the 
potential for severe erosion tonight along the Outer Cape and the 
east side of Nantucket as a consequence of large and long period 
swells breaking onshore. Long period swells can contain 
considerable energy and have a greater erosion impact than one 
might first think. 


And have added a statement to indicate pockets of minor coastal 
flooding from Boston north to Salisbury...again due to the large 
swells and the difficulty of the water evacuating from the high 
tide earlier today. It does not look widespread enough at this 
time to warrant an advisory for this stretch of coastline. 


Prior discussion issued this afternoon... 


Preliminary reports suggest fairly widespread moderate coastal flood 
impact from the Monday late morning high tide south of Boston 
including Hull...Scituate...Marshfield and Nantucket. 


Looking ahead...have issued a coastal Flood Advisory for east 
and north facing shorelines south of Boston...including Hull to 
Plymouth...Sandwich to Dennis...Orleans to Chatham and Nantucket. 
There appears to be enough residual surge and wave action for areas 
of minor coastal flooding in the advisory area around the time of 
high tide tonight...at or a little after midnight in most locations 
along the Massachusetts East Coast. We anticipate a swell of 12 to 16 feet 
propagating into mass Bay and exposed portions of Cape Cod Bay and 
14 to 18 feet just off the Outer Cape and just east of Nantucket 
around midnight. The longer periods of perhaps 11 to 13 seconds 
implies greater energy waves moving onto the shoreline...and this is 
reflected in the experimental wave runup output depicting splash 
over at our Scituate experimental location. 


Went near or a little below the etss surge guidance but above the 
estofs guidance...which continues to have a very significant low 
bias. Surface wind direction is expected to be from the north and 
considerably diminished in speed from earlier today. The 
astronomical high tide tonight runs about a half foot to a foot 
lower than the Monday late morning tide...depending upon location. 
Total water levels look to be high enough for some minor coastal 
flooding in east facing protective bays/harbors and splashover 
from the long period swells along the open shoreline. Some 
erosion is likely around the time of high tide...most notably 
along the Outer Cape and east side of Nantucket. 


A few especially vulnerable spots may experience minor coastal 
flooding around the time of the particularly high astronomical tide 
around midday/early afternoon Tuesday due to a residual long period 
swell and possible surge near one foot. Confidence is too 
low...however...to extend the advisory headline at this time.
