Synopsis
Issued at 313 pm est Fri jan 19 2018
mild air will continue to spread over the area through the weekend
with highs around 40 Saturday and then 40 to 45 Sunday.

Temperatures will be a little cooler over remaining snow covered
areas. Lows tonight will be in the upper 20s, followed by lows in
the 30s Saturday night. Fog is expected to develop late Saturday
and then persist through Sunday as moisture spread north. Rain
will develop Sunday night and persist through much of Monday as
the next system moves into the area.

Short term (this evening through Saturday)
issued at 312 pm est Fri jan 19 2018
mild but dry air will continue to spread north across the area
tonight with temperatures only falling into the upper 20s.

Moisture will begin to increase Saturday ahead of the next system
with patchy fog developing by late in the day. Highs should top
40, expect over areas of snow cover. There is a chance for light
rain or possibly light drizzle by late in the day.

Long term (Saturday night through Friday)
issued at 312 pm est Fri jan 19 2018
areas of fog will continue to develop Saturday night and persist
into Sunday as moisture continues to spread north. Rain will
develop Sunday night and continue Monday with rainfall amounts
around an inch possible over northwest areas. Concern for rises
on rivers given snow melt, rain, and frozen ground. Upper level
jet dynamics should translate over this area early next week.

Otherwise, not much arctic air behind this system, so temperatures
should stay a little above normal behind the cold front. The best
chance for any winter travel issues appears to be Tuesday morning
as temperatures fall below freezing over most areas.

Aviation (for the 12z tafs through 12z Saturday morning)
issued at 1245 pm est Fri jan 19 2018
vfr conditions are the story for both sbn and fwa this afternoon
with southwesterly winds increasing as the pressure gradient
strengthens.

A potent low-level jet tracking through the great lakes will be
responsible for the llws. Guidance is in good agreement with this
feature, with only subtle differences in timing.

Ceilings are expected to fall Saturday morning as a "warm" and
moist air mass arrives from the south. There can also be fog,
through confidence is low at this time.

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.
