High pressure will push slowly east across the great lakes
region through Sunday. This will provide for dry conditions and
slightly below normal temperatures through the weekend. An
upper level low pressure system moving out of the mississippi
valley will bring a chance of showers for the start of the work
Near term until 6 pm this evening
Updated the forecast to allow the freeze warning and frost
advisory to expire. Brought in a little extra cloud cover to the
north this morning, based on the latest satellite loop.
Rest of forecast is looking ok right now.
Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Sunday
The mid level ridging will continue to weaken tonight into
Sunday with weak pieces of mid level energy pushing east across
the region overnight. This will help keep a fair amount of
mainly high level cloudiness in place across our area. An upper
level low will begin to slowly lift out of the lower
mississippi valley through the day on Sunday, but with still
some weak mid level riding hanging on across our area, dry
conditions will prevail through the day. Lows tonight will be in
the upper 30s to lower 40s with highs on Sunday in the low to
Long term Sunday night through Friday
Sunday night an upper level low will be located near arkansas and be
mostly cut off from the main flow. The vertically stacked low will
slowly push northeast with light rain moving into the area Monday
evening. GFS forecast soundings are not to impressive, with mainly
light rain and cool weather expected. The low will then remain quasi-
stationary over the area Tuesday as an upper level disturbance over
canada remains to far north to pick the low up.
By Wednesday the upper level disturbance over canada will push far
enough south to help pull the low northeast and out of the area. The
latest run of the 00z models this morning are in general agreement
with a slightly further north track of the low compared to the 12z
model runs (except the cmc), so have nudged the chance of
precipitation further north.
Wednesday night into Thursday models begin to quickly diverge as
each handles the ejection of the aforementioned low differently.
Both the GFS and ECMWF dive a secondary upper level shortwave
southeast out of canada, but the GFS is much stronger with the
shortwave and even wrap it up into a closed low. The ECMWF keeps the
wave open. For now have split the difference between the models
given the wide range of uncertainty. By the end of the extended a
more potent upper level disturbance will dive south pushing a cold
front through the region. Both the ECMWF and GFS have the front
pushing through the area Friday or Saturday.
Aviation 13z Saturday through Wednesday
High pressure will gradually weaken across the region today
through tonight, allowing for some high and mid level clouds to
overspread the area.VFR conditions are expected through the

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
