Synopsis
Issued at 620 am edt Mon may 29 2017
a cold front will move across the area this afternoon bringing a
slight chance of showers and thunderstorms. A weak trough rotating
around a strong stationary low pressure system over ontario will
bring a slight chance of showers to our area again Tuesday.

Temperatures will be seasonably warm again today, but,
a little cooler than normal Tuesday and Wednesday.

Short term (today through tonight)
issued at 341 am edt Mon may 29 2017
parent upr low over SRN on will continue to wrapup today as
secondary disturbance rotating through the base of this feature
drives ewd through mi. Tail end of this feature will encounter a
marginally unstable airmass by aftn over ERN areas and should
initiate isolated storms by mid aftn along residual theta-e ridge
although cams guidance rather lackluster owing to significant
boundary layer drying that has spread across the area. Otherwise
strong late may insolation will drive considerable heating mixing
into this aftn with fairly gusts wsw winds.

Skies will clear this evening behind secondary trough axis with
even drier air spreading through the area making for a cool night.

Long term (Tuesday night through Sunday)
issued at 341 am edt Mon may 29 2017
general quiet seasonably cool pattern under the influence of upr low
persisting over the james valley through thu. Thereafter high
latitude disturbance over nv will drop south across hudson bay then
amplify SE through new england next weekend allowing for an active
nw-se oriented frontal zone to develop from the NRN plains to the
lower oh valley.

Best indication for precip is on Fri as vigorous upr jet MAX shifts
through the NRN lakes within SW periphery of upr low dropping toward
new england. Low level westerly jet response and temporary ewd build
of plains theta-e ridge warrant high chance pop mention although did
back away from low end likely mention per poor consensus timing on a
more specific favored period.

Thereafter general height suppression aloft upstream of new england
upr low should result in low level baroclinic zone to shift well
south through the tn valley by sun. Torturous blended pop guidance
smatters throughout the weekend yet more likely scenario is area
finally dries out as expansive sfc ridge builds in across the lakes
and sorely needed after a very wet month of may.

Aviation (for the 12z tafs through 12z Tuesday morning)
issued at 620 am edt Mon may 29 2017
vfr conditions contg across the area early this morning. Patchy alto-cu
in cyclonic flow should give way to high based CU this aftn. Cdfnt
over wi expected to drop SE across NRN in this aftn with a few shra ts
developing along it. Better chances for impacts from convection again
today look to be at fwa where FROPA will come later in the aftn.

Deep mixing and unidirectional flow will allow for wind gusts near
25kt, likely stronger in near and shra ts. Winds will diminish with loss
of heating this eve with some patchy alto CU likely persisting
overnight.

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.
