Synopsis
Issued at 425 am edt Sat sep 23 2017
very warm conditions will continue today with high temperatures
reaching around the 90 degree mark once again. Much above normal
temperatures will continue into the early next week as highs
reach into the middle and upper 80s. Markedly cooler air will
build into the region by midweek as a cold front moves through the
area.

Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 423 am edt Sat sep 23 2017
yet another day within stagnated air mass with within low level
thermal ridge over southern portion of upper great lakes with
widespread lower 90s near record high temperatures across the
region. Fervent ridging and meager lapse rates in the mid levels
over the southern great lakes through the period to maintain dry
airmass with large scale subsidence to offset potential late
afternoon evening buoyant parcels.

Long term (Sunday through Friday)
issued at 423 am edt Sat sep 23 2017
northern portion of deep western CONUS trough to finally progress
eastward into upper great lakes midweek and allow shallow frontal
zone to quell extreme near record temperature of past few days.

Cooler airmass to become well entrenched towards weeks end as cwa
betwixt extratropical remnants of maria and southward progressing
anticyclone of canadian high plains origin. Timing of showers
primary forecast problem mid to late part of week associated with
mid level trof progression into upper great lakes and disparate
model evolutions.

Aviation (for the 12z tafs through 12z Sunday morning)
issued at 610 am edt Sat sep 23 2017
high pressure will continue to support light variable winds,
mainly clear skies, and dry conditions. There may be some shallow
ground fog that could briefly impact the terminals toward
daybreak each morning.

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.
