Synopsis
Issued at 243 pm edt Tue mar 28 2017
rain returns Thursday and continues into Friday as a large upper
level system moves into the area. Rainfall amounts should range
from half an inch to over an in by late Friday. Until then quite
and seasonably weather will predominate through Wednesday night.

Highs the rest of the week will be mainly in the 50s with lows in
the 30s and 40s.

Short term (this evening through Wednesday)
issued at 243 pm edt Tue mar 28 2017
potent SW disturbance over SW nm this aftn will eject out through w
tx tonight and then open northeast into the WRN oh valley thu. At
the sfc... Ridge extending swd out of hudson bay will retreat ewd
into qb as broad srly rtn flow develops on the backside. In the
interim shallow dirty inversion in place should continue to whittle
down as nerly low level dry entrainment upticks overnight into wed
am. Thereafter will continue to hold out hope that partial
insolation develops on Wed resulting in more vigorous diurnals.

Long term (Wednesday night through Tuesday)
issued at 243 pm edt Tue mar 28 2017
aforementioned tx shortwave will open and slowly kickout south of
the oh river fri. In advance of this system... Robust deep moisture
tongue with gomex origin will advect north into the SRN lakes thu
and interact with frontal zone to bring widespread rainfall to the
area ESP Thu morning through Thu evening. Additional shra likely fri
morning as upper trough overhead accelerates ewd.

Secondary following potent epac disturbance takes a similar track
into the swrn us Fri and then out through the SRN plains this
weekend. Short amplitude ridging inbetween with seasonably temps.

This sys then expected to kickout ahead of NRN stream SW advancing
through the NRN rockies mon. Details on ewd evolution of this sys
remain quite unclear with sizable spread aloft indicated in spectral
models. Will therefore temper blended pops late mon-mon night.

Regardless more substantial temp moderation indicated early to mid
next week ahead of central plains gyre.

Aviation (for the 00z tafs through 00z Wednesday evening)
issued at 729 pm edt Tue mar 28 2017
starting to have some doubts about how far south clearing will
work overnight. Satellite trends and timing tools show a steady
southward progression to clearing line this evening across lower
michigan. Hires models seem to have good handle on this and agree
with latest timing tool suggestingVFR into ksbn between 03z and
04z. Issue is further south and east as low level wind field
begins to veer more easterly overnight as high pressure over upper
great lakes slides southeast. This easterly flow begins to slow
southward progression and last few hires runs show clouds stalling
near kfwa and near the us 24 corridor around 04-06z... About the
time clearing is expected in kfwa taf. Continued with previous
clearing trend toVFR at kfwa but did slow it down by a few hours
based on satellite. Will have to monitor trends later this evening
but MVFR could hang on at kfwa through the night or be just south
of terminal.

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.
