Synopsis
Issued at 233 am edt Wed jun 28 2017
high pressure over the ohio valley will move east today. Southerly
winds will increase resulting in breezy and warmer conditions.

Thunderstorm chances will be increasing into Thursday night ahead
of a slow moving cold front. There is a good chance for storms
Thursday night through Friday evening.

Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 233 am edt Wed jun 28 2017
potent lead SW trough ejecting out of WRN sd this morning will track
rapidly newd into the up by mid evening as trailing cold front
stalls wwd through the central plains. Meanwhile strong return flow
develops ewd into the lakes especially by late aftn in concert with
ewd shift of llj. Somewhat slower ewd advection of low level theta-e
ridge seen throughout 00z guidance suite and as such will delay pops
again while cutting sharply back from prior likely pops in light of
nwd shift of LLJ core late tonight along with most substantial upper
forcing tracking well north in mi.

Long term (Thursday through Tuesday)
issued at 233 am edt Wed jun 28 2017
lead disturbance shears out through on Thu to start the period. Some
precip potential still indicated within the solution scope to hold
with a low chance pop Thu morning in deference to cams solutions
indicating remnant outflow from late Wed night convection over mi
residing across NRN zones. Otherwise far greater prospects for
storms indicated lt Thu aftn and Thu night INVOF of convectively
reinforced boundary. Substantial theta-e ridge and resurging llj
sewd of upstream significant SW trough digging through the dakotas
highlights a certain heavy precip producing MCS risk yet placement
details quite sketchy and no doubt predicated in late dy1
developments concerning modulation of potential outflow boundary.

Thereafter dakotas SW deepens further ewd into the upper midwest
Friday night. This will allow sfc frontal zone to kick ewd late fri
with corresponding band of shra tsra extending swd from sfc cyclone
ejecting through wi. Shra likely to extend well into Sat too
especially east as upper low wraps up through WRN on again and upper
trough slow to edge east.

Beyond that mid level subsidence and weak sfc ridging follows
through the lakes Sun followed by yet another upstream SW dropping
through the NRN plains Mon and into the SRN lakes tue.

Aviation (for the 18z tafs through 18z Thursday afternoon)
issued at 1238 pm edt Wed jun 28 2017
an area of showers and isolated storms over northeast il is
expected to weaken this afternoon. There is a better chance for a
storm late tonight as a weak upper level disturbance approaches.

Mentioned vcts at sbn 09-12z; otherwise, no significant weather
is expected.

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.
