958 PM EDT Fri Jun 17 2022 .SYNOPSIS... Much cooler this weekend with well below normal temperatures, along with a few showers at times Saturday night into Sunday. Drier conditions with near normal temperatures should return for early next week. && .NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SATURDAY MORNING/... 10 PM update... Initial cold front still hung up across SE MA and southern RI. Wind shift to NW behind the front with dewpoints dropping into the 50s interior with some upper 40s. Meanwhile, dewpoints still in the mid 60s ahead of the front. Latest HRRR suggests front weakens as it moves across Cape/Islands overnight with a subtle wind shift to W. Gradual low level drying will allow stratus and patchy fog at Nantucket to erode. Secondary shortwave moves into the region overnight and will bring some cloud cover, especially interior, but any showers should remain to the north and west. Lows will range through the 50s in the interior, coolest in the Berkshires, with lower 60s closer to the coast. && .SHORT TERM /6 AM SATURDAY MORNING THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/... A steep trough digs into the region overnight; as an unseasonably cold airmass settles over southern New England; much cooler air is on tap for the weekend . Both 850 and 925mb temperatures are dismally cold, with 850mb temps anticipated to range between -1 and 3C... brr! Temperatures will be coldest across the highest terrain, where some localities will struggle to reach 60F on Saturday. Eastern MA and coastal RI will be among the warmest spots tomorrow, as temperatures aloft are not quite as cold; high temps will reach closer to 70F across the coastal plain. The day will begin with sunshine, but clouds will increase as the day goes on as an increase as low and mid level moisture pivots into our region thanks the cyclonic flow around a low centered to our north and east. Winds will also be gusty again tomorrow, as a somewhat generous low level jet parks itself over southern New England for the weekend. 925mb winds range from 25 to 30 kt across the higher terrain, while SE MA, the Cape, and Islands find some relief from the breeze in a LLJ "donut hole"; gusts in these locations will be generally below 20 kt Saturday. It is not often that Nantucket experiences the least gusty conditions of the entire CWA! Surface dewpoints continue to plummet through the period, and will settle into the low and mid 40s by early Sunday morning. Thankfully, clouds and blustery NW flow will keep us from radiating overnight. Lows will tumble back into the upper 40s to mid 50s Saturday night, coolest across NW MA and warmest along the coast. Shower chances increase overnight Saturday into Sunday as well, primarily across eastern MA. Areas to the west of Worcester look to remain dry. && .LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/... Highlights... Highlights... * Chilly nights this weekend. An unseasonably cool Sunday but temps start to moderate for CT valley. * Tranquil weather with moderating temps to start the new work week. Details... Still expecting a changeable weather pattern during this portion of the forecast. We start out with the core of an anomalous cold pool aloft just moving offshore of the southern New England coast Sunday morning. The mid level flow over the North Atlantic looks rather blocky and meridional for most of this time, so am not expecting this cold pool to move quickly off to the east. That said, this feature should at least be able to move far enough away from our region where its influence on our weather will be greatly diminished. At the surface, thinking an approaching warm front essentially stalls mid week to our west, then occludes as its paired cold front catches it and squeezes the warm sector of a low pressure in Canada farther south. Temperature-wise, most of southern New England is expected to be 5- 10 degrees below normal Sunday, transitioning to near normal Monday and Tuesday. Not seeing signs of the truly oppressive heat gripping much of the central part of the USA reaching here this week. Am thinking temperatures will trend slightly above normal Wednesday into Friday next week. Thinking most of next week will remain dry across southern New England, with only an approaching front the most likely focus for any showers. Not entirely convinced this front will even reach our region until late next week. Humidity should be slowly increasing as next week progresses. As it does, cannot completely dismiss the possibility of popup afternoon showers, especially across interior southern New England, Tuesday into Thursday. Stuck with the NationalBlend precipitation chances during this time, as it is a larger ensemble. The greatest risk of any showers will be along and west of I-91 in CT and MA. && .AVIATION /02Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/... Forecaster Confidence Levels: Low - less than 30 percent. Medium - 30 to 60 percent. High - greater than 60 percent. 00Z Update... Tonight...High Confidence. VFR for most terminals. IFR/LIFR stratus and patchy fog over Islands, will improve to VFR 02-06z as wind shifts to W/NW. Otherwise VFR with W/NW wind 5-15 kt with a few G20kt possible over higher terrain. Saturday...High confidence. VFR with sct-bkn cigs 4-5k ft developing. NW gusts to 20-25 kt developing. Saturday Night...Moderate confidence. MVFR/VFR for most terminals with sct-bkn cigs 2-4k ft. NW gusts 15-20 kt. Slight chance of RW- across eastern MA, Cape, and Islands. KBOS Terminal...High Confidence in TAF. KBDL Terminal...High Confidence in TAF. Outlook /Sunday through Wednesday/... Juneteenth: VFR. Breezy. Sunday Night: VFR. Monday: VFR. Breezy. Monday Night: VFR. Tuesday: VFR. Slight chance SHRA. Tuesday Night: Mainly VFR, with local MVFR possible. Slight chance SHRA. Wednesday: Mainly VFR, with local IFR possible. Slight chance SHRA. && .MARINE... Forecaster Confidence Levels: Low - less than 30 percent. Medium - 30 to 60 percent. High - greater than 60 percent. Winds shift to W tonight with gusts to 20 kt then a period of NW gusts 20-25 kt expected Sat. Poor vsbys expected this afternoon/evening over south coastal waters in areas of dense fog, improving later tonight. While winds look to die back inside of a "donut hole" of the LLJ across our southeastern waters on Saturday, heightened waves look to persist through much of the weekend, so small crafts will likely need to be extended to account for such through most of Saturday and Sunday. Outlook /Sunday through Wednesday/... Juneteenth: Winds less than 25 kt. Seas up to 5 ft. Chance of rain showers. Sunday Night through Monday: Winds less than 25 kt. Areas of seas approaching 5 ft. Monday Night through Tuesday: Winds less than 25 kt. Seas locally approaching 5 ft. Tuesday Night through Wednesday: Winds less than 25 kt. Seas locally approaching 5 ft. Slight chance of rain showers. && .BOX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES... CT...None. MA...None. RI...None.

National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio TX
623 PM CDT Fri Jun 17 2022 ...New AVIATION... .SHORT TERM... (Tonight through Saturday night) Issued at 105 PM CDT Fri Jun 17 2022 A 594 dm high as analyzed by latest RAP analysis remains centered over Southwest Missouri this afternoon, with weak southeasterly flow aloft over South-Central Texas. At the surface, winds remain fairly light in comparison to the last several days, at generally less than 10 kts out of the east-southeast. As the region is south of the Subtropical Ridge and flow is more east/southeasterly, a weak sea breeze may develop this afternoon/early evening. Whether or not any sort of convection can initiate, is the biggest question. As it stands right now, latest hi res guidance is not particularly bullish, given fairly warm EML/700 mb temperatures over the Coastal Plains. With that being said, think that the region will remain largely capped, with little in the way of coverage this evening. Will keep PoPs below 10% in the Coastal Plains, with the outside shot that something could form. Temperatures remain mighty toasty, but with dewpoints in the mid 50s to mid 60s, heat indices will not be much of an issue, despite afternoon highs in the mid to upper 90s and lower 100s. For tonight, we are not expecting quite as much widespread cloud cover, despite east/southeasterly surface flow. Will stick with some low stratus developing closer to sunrise, but that should quickly mix out by mid morning, leading to yet another hot day Saturday. Highs will top out in the upper 90s to lower 100s area wide. As is always recommended, continue to be mindful of the heat, by reducing strenuous activities, drinking plenty of water, and finding some A.C. to cool off. && .LONG TERM... (Sunday through Friday) Issued at 105 PM CDT Fri Jun 17 2022 An upper level blocking pattern will initially have a hold on the Central CONUS and dry and hot weather will continue to persist throughout the duration of the long-term portion of the forecast. The upper ridge axis will eventually break down on the northern end as a trough moves into the northern CONUS shifting the center of the ridge to the Southern Plains by early next week and continuing into Thursday. Temperatures through Wednesday will peak in upper 90s through 103 for most of the area with slightly warmer values by the end of the long-term forecast. Although the above normal temperatures continue for this time of the year, things look to be mainly be just below Heat Advisory criteria for now. Unfortunately, no rain is expected through next Friday. && .AVIATION... (00Z TAFS) Issued at 623 PM CDT Fri Jun 17 2022 VFR flying conditions prevail tonight through Saturday evening. FEW-SCT MVFR level clouds develop overnight and mix out by late morning. Similar to this morning, have introduced a TEMPO for MVFR CIGs at KSSF, while there is less potential at the other sites. Southeasterly winds 5 to 15 KTs prevail through the forecast, though trend southerly around 5 KTs at the I-35 sites overnight into morning. && .PRELIMINARY POINT TEMPS/POPS...

National Weather Service Louisville KY
950 PM EDT Fri Jun 17 2022 .Forecast Update... Issued at 950 PM EDT Fri Jun 17 2022 Sure enough, a few blips have shown up on radar over SE Washington county over the past several scans. The HRRR continues to show a few showers drifting SE over the Louisville metro toward Midnight. Given how consistent the HRRR has been with timing and placement, and we are actually see some returns now on radar went ahead and added a 20 pop around the Louisville metro for a couple of hours. Previous Update... Issued at 855 PM EDT Fri Jun 17 2022 Things are quiet across the CWA at this hour, and it is largely expected to stay that way overnight. However, we may still have an outside shot an a few showers around the Louisville metro later this evening. The cold front is showing up very nicely on mosaic radar imagery dropping south of IND at this hour. It is actually moving at a pretty good clip (around 20 mph) with a very notable and welcome airmass change behind it (dew points in the 40s). As the front approaches the Ohio River toward Midnight, it may set off an area of agitated cu around the metro area. The HRRR has been consistently showing a few showers later this evening with each run, so tough to rule it out. Also noticed on SPC mesoanalysis that there is an area of surface moisture convergence associated with the agitated cu, so it may not take a whole lot else other than the front to set a few showers off. The good news is that there is a notable inversion just below 700mb (confirmed by recent AMDAR sounding), so any shower should actually be capped around 10 k feet. Am debating on adding a 20% chance for a couple of hours around Midnight to account for this isolated shower potential. && .Short Term...(This evening through Saturday) Issued at 255 PM EDT Fri Jun 17 2022 A long-awaited break in the heat wave is beginning, but we could still have some warm and muggy conditions to deal with this afternoon and evening. Rain-cooled post-MCS regime may not last more than another couple of hours, and the sfc cold front still lags near the I-70 corridor. Not to worry, as the cooler and less humid air will eventually arrive, given a strong closed upper low diving SE from James Bay to Maine and a 1028mb sfc high dropping down toward Gitche Gumee. Temps tonight will run just below climo but the drop in dewpoints will be gradual through the night. Chamber of Commerce weather is expected on Saturday with lots of sunshine, temps just barely touching 80, and dewpoints crashing into the 40s in some locations. Decent pressure gradient on the periphery of the high will give us a fairly fresh NNE breeze, with 20-25 mph gusts at times. .Long Term...(Saturday night through Friday) Issued at 315 PM EDT Fri Jun 17 2022 Saturday Night and Sunday... The beginning of the extended period will kick off with seasonable temperatures and comfortable dewpoints as surface high pressure over the Great Lakes region provides cool and dry northeasterly flow to the Ohio Valley. Mid- and upper-level NW flow will be present as an upper-level trough will be located along the east coast of North America with an amplified ridge present across the center of the continent. Temperatures Saturday night will fall into the 50s across the area as mostly clear skies and light winds allow for enhanced radiational cooling. During the day on Sunday, expect mostly sunny skies with temperatures topping out in the upper 70s and low-to-mid 80s. Monday - Thursday... It looks like the break from intense heat will be short-lived as mid- and upper-level ridging moves back into the Ohio and lower Mississippi Valleys for the early-to-middle part of next week. There is still disagreement between the medium-range guidance suites as to the extent of the heat wave, especially for Tuesday and beyond. WPC Cluster Analysis continues to show the ECMWF ensemble members favoring a stronger 500 mb ridge in comparison to the GFS/CMC ensembles, which promote a flattening in the ridge during the mid- week time frame. This difference is also observed in 850-mb temperature anomaly data, with the EPS Ensemble Situational Awareness Table suggesting temperatures which could be 3-4 standard deviations above normal, compared with a 1-2 sigma anomaly in the GFS+CMC ensemble solutions. Due to uncertainty in the veracity of the ECMWF solution, will continue to show restraint with temperature forecasts for next week, keeping temps a few degrees below NBM guidance for now. This will still leave us with several days of middle- and upper-90s across the region during the Tuesday through Thursday time frame, with lows falling into the low-to-mid 70s at night. As far as precipitation chances are concerned, PoPs should remain dry through Wednesday afternoon with the ridge and surface high pressure in control. If the ridge does break down more (as in the GFS/CMC solutions), showers and thunderstorms may return to the picture across southern Indiana and north central Kentucky late Wednesday into Thursday. However, if the ECMWF solution is borne out, expect dry conditions to persist through at least Thursday. This persistent hot and dry weather may lead to flash drought concerns, especially in areas which received little-to-no rain today. && .Aviation...(00Z TAF Issuance) Issued at 749 PM EDT Fri Jun 17 2022 Look for light winds shifting from the NW to N overnight as a frontal boundary sinks southward through the area. A few to sct clouds around 4-5 K feet may linger through around midnight or so as well. By sunrise on Saturday, look for stead NNE surface winds between 10 and 15 mph, with a few gusts up around 20 mph possible. Otherwise sky cover looks to be very little, if any, so will carry SKC. && .LMK WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES... IN...None. KY...None. && $$ Update...BJS Short Term...RAS Long Term...CSG Aviation...BJS

1019 PM EDT Fri Jun 17 2022 .UPDATE... EVENING UPDATE. && .DISCUSSION... A good deal of cirrus/cirro-stratus clouds remain across the Tennessee valley and southern Appalachians this evening and will continue much of the night. A frontal boundary will move into the area early Saturday morning bringing with it much drier air. Airmass ahead of this boundary continues to stabilize with CAPES below 500. Latest HRRR does show an isolated shower or two possible across southwest Virginia and northeast Tennessee early in the morning but coverage is limited. Due to recent rains, mostly clear/partly cloudy sky, and calm/light winds, patchy fog development is expected overnight. Made some changes to going hourly temperatures to reflect current conditions. && .AVIATION... 00Z TAF DISCUSSION. Only slight chance of showers this evening. Main concern is potential of fog development. Due to this afternoon`s rains, patchy fog development is expected with the greatest potential at TRI. Also possible at TYS/CHA but confidence is too low to include. Otherwise, cool front with much drier airmass will move into the Tennessee valley for Saturday. Clear sky is anticipated. Biggest concern for Saturday is the tightening pressure gradient as surface high begins to build into the southern Appalachians.

National Weather Service Phoenix AZ
437 PM MST Fri Jun 17 2022 .UPDATE...0Z Aviation Discussion... && .SYNOPSIS... A Pacific low pressure system will bring breezy conditions to the Desert Southwest today along with an increase in moisture tonight and Saturday. There is a chance of showers and thunderstorms the next few days, particularly from Phoenix eastward. With the increased moisture and threat of storms, below normal temperatures are likely this weekend. A warming trend is expected next week as high pressure becomes reestablished across the southern US. && .DISCUSSION... Water vapor imagery reveals a large cyclonic vortex off the northern California coast. This system is anomalous for mid-June and it will bring us some atypical weather the next few days. Strong southerly flow ahead of the low ha pulled mid/high level moisture northward across central/eastern AZ this afternoon. Latest 88-D radar imagery is showing some virga/very light sprinkles moving northward across eastern Maricopa/southern Gila counties with some TS activity showing up further to the east over the White Mtns southward into eastern Cochise County. Given the inverted-V soundings, the potential still exists for localized strong wind gusts, perhaps in excess of 40 mph across portions of central Arizona through the remainder of the afternoon/early evening hours. The HRRR and the U of A WRF has been consistent depicting a complex of storms developing across southeastern Arizona tonight. There is a chance this complex will produce an outflow boundary strong enough to generate blowing dust across Pinal and southeastern Maricopa Counties. If the outflow is even stronger, it will provide a boost in low-level moisture convergence as it moves northward and interacts with the southwesterly gradient flow. This convergence combined with increasing forced ascent associated with an elongated vort lobe extending back into the low could promote the development of scattered shower activity after midnight across portions of central Arizona. There are indications that this activity could linger into Saturday morning, given the near record values of IVT. This moisture plume will shift northeastward during the day Saturday, but in its wake, latest HREF indicates breaks in the clouds giving way to increasing instability. The U of A WRF is now indicating a corridor of elevated MUCAPE (aoa 1000 J/kg extending northward across extreme eastern Maricopa/eastern Pinal/Gila Counties) developing by midday Saturday. For Saturday afternoon, the forecast reflects the latest NBM which indicates PoPs near 40 percent across the Phoenix area and up to 70 percent further east. The strongest storms will be capable of producing frequent lightning, winds in excess of 50 mph, small hail, and brief heavy rain. Flooding potential will be highest across the burn scars east of Phoenix. In the Valley, GEFS/ECMWF/CMC ensemble members have trended lower and generally point to a high likelihood of rainfall at or below a tenth of an inch. Nevertheless, the KPHX record rainfall of 0.25 inches (set in 1967) is within reach. Operational GFS/ECMWF indicate drier air will overspread the lower deserts by Sunday. However, lingering moisture will be sufficient for scattered convection in the higher terrain east of Phoenix. Better moisture may return by the middle of next week as southwesterly flow aloft shears moisture from decaying tropical systems into the Desert Southwest. However ridging aloft will likely keep the atmosphere too stable for significant convective development, except for the higher terrain north and east of Phoenix, where some isolated-scattered TS development could occur. The ridging aloft will likely lead to warmer temperatures through the middle and end of next week, with lower desert highs likely exceeding 110 degrees once again by the end of next week. Unfortunately the increasing moisture aloft will likely hamper nighttime cooling during the mid/late parts of next week, leading to lows remaining well up into the 80`s across the south-central AZ lower deserts, perhaps even approaching 90 degrees at the warmest urban locations. && .AVIATION...Updated at 2340Z. South-Central Arizona including KPHX, KIWA, KSDL, and KDVT: IMPACTS: -Scattered shower chances later tonight through Saturday -Locally gusty winds in vicinity of virga/showers -Low (20-30%) risk of thunderstorms affecting terminals Saturday PM Complex forecast through the TAF period, leading to low confidence at times. With moisture increasing from the south and favorable jet dynamics encroaching, expect continued SCT/BKN clouds around 15KFT, perhaps lowering somewhat to around 10KFT tomorrow. A period of gusty SW breezes early this evening will back around to the SE tonight after 6Z. Available guidance supports the potential (30-40% risk) for showers/virga to develop from 6Z through the rest of the night around the area. Though not explicitly in the TAF, erratic and gusty winds would accompany this should development occur. Winds on Saturday will be dictated by proximity of rain/thunder development to the metro. Large share of this activity should be near and east of KIWA. This will be when the highest risk (20-30%) exists for any thunderstorms to affect the terminals. Will have to continue monitoring for any outflow- induced pockets of BLDU as well. Southeast California/Southwest Arizona including KIPL and KBLH: At IPL, Gusty W sundowner winds are expected this evening with gusts upwards of 25 kts possible along with some lofted dust around the county. Gusts lessen overnight before picking up to 20-30KT by Saturday afternoon. For KBLH gusty S-SW winds are favored with gusts near 25 kts, with with slightly reduced vsby near 6 SM in blowing dust through the evening. && .FIRE WEATHER... Hot, dry and breezy conditions are expected today ahead of a low pressure system off the California coast. Winds and RHs may approach critical thresholds for a few hours and in localized areas of southwestern Arizona and SE CA this afternoon. Moisture however will be on the increase tonight and Saturday across SW/South-Central AZ, which will result in a chance of showers and thunderstorms, particularly from Phoenix eastward. Any thunderstorms that develop have the potential to produce gusty and erratic winds. There is also a slight chance of dry lightning, mainly across eastern Arizona through Saturday. The combination of much drier conditions and continued gusty winds will likely lead to elevated Fire Danger levels again Saturday afternoon across SE CA. Wetting rains will likely be relegated to far eastern Arizona by Sunday. High pressure will build back across the Desert Southwest next week, resulting in a warming trend and a return to above normal temperatures by midweek. There may also be enough moisture to support at least isolated showers and storms across the higher terrain north and east of Phoenix by Wednesday. && .PSR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES... AZ...None.

.DISCUSSION... Issued at 246 PM CDT Fri Jun 17 2022 Upper ridge axis was centered over the High Plains at 18Z per recent water vapor imagery with high cloud lingering overhead indicating the center of the upper high was nearby. Southerly flow has returned to most of the CWA with the old frontal boundary across southeastern Nebraska into far northeast Kansas. Latest RAP analysis shows some inhibition remaining near the boundary though weak convergence along it should keep convection in check. Dewpoints have recovered into the upper 60s to middle 70s after last night`s outflow boundary mixed out. The main question through early next week is afternoon heat indices with the upper pattern largely steady-state and only slow changes at the lower levels. Surface high pressure builds south into the Ohio Valley Sunday and brings slightly backed winds into eastern Kansas. Though dewpoints may still hold in the upper 60s to lower 70s for most of the area, temps look to be a bit lower as a result even leaning on the warmer end of guidance with some cumulus potential. This keeps heat indices in the upper 90s to around 103 for the bulk of the area, and not to levels of a confident Advisory, especially considering the area has seen a few days of near to much more extreme conditions recently and lows this morning and tonight in the upper 60s to middle 70s. Winds veer Sunday into Monday for warmer temps but lower dewpoints, especially as ground conditions continue to dry. There continues to be potential for heat indices to touch on mid 100s for at least portions of the area through Monday and perhaps Tuesday before a front works its way near/into the area as the ridge temporarily breaks down across the northern Plains. Will keep the Excessive Heat Watch going and some chance PoPs with the boundary though confidence in the boundary reaching beyond the northern counties is not high. Heat indices may return to triple digits by late next week as the ridge axis rebuilds. && .AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Saturday evening) Issued at 616 PM CDT Fri Jun 17 2022 VFR conditions will persist through the forecast period.
