Issued at 1214 pm est Fri feb 23 2018
widespread significant flooding will continue over northwest
indiana and southwest lower michigan with record crests on several
rivers. Rain has moved out for a time and temperatures have made
their way into the mid-40s to low-50s. Rain returns early
Saturday morning from south to north. There can be a wintry mix
for a time along the us 6 corridor. Dry air returns on Sunday.
Short term (today through Saturday night)
issued at 342 am est Fri feb 23 2018
some rivers were still yet to crest from earlier record rainfall
causing extensive flooding. Additional waves tracking along the
front could bring another half inch of rain to the hardest hit
areas; however, this additional rainfall should not have a major
impact on the current situation. Heavier rainfall amounts are
expected to fall south and east of fort wayne where about 1.75"
is expected from portland to lima. Will update the hydrologic
outlook to mention additional rainfall sending several rivers into
flood. Some lowlands are also likely to flood over these areas.
In addition to the rain, a light wintry mix is possible tonight
over far northern indiana into northwest ohio. There could be some
minor travel issues in the vicinity of highway 6 around daybreak;
however, temperatures should warm quickly after sunrise bringing
the end to any travel issues.
Long term (Sunday through Thursday)
issued at 342 am est Fri feb 23 2018
the main upper trof should linger over western north american
through the middle of this upcoming week. Mild weather can be|
expected downstream of this system with highs generally in the mid
40s to the mid 50s through Wednesday. Little if any rain is
expected during this time as the main energy with this system
stays west of the forecast area.
Aviation (for the 18z tafs through 18z Saturday afternoon)
issued at 1214 pm est Fri feb 23 2018
satellite imagery indicates ifr ceilings can continue for the
next few hours before both terminals transition to MVFR ceilings.
There is high confidence in sbn seeing the greatest improvement,
with ceilings near 2,000 feet. Meanwhile, at fwa, ceilings will
likely linger near ifr and ifr alternate minimum through the taf
period. When rain moves in Saturday morning at fwa, lifr ceilings
could be a problem. At this time, confidence is low in this
One more detail is that winds will gradually become easterly
through the TAF period as high pressure tracks eastward through
the upper great lakes.

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.
