Synopsis
Issued at 337 am edt Fri mar 22 2019
a brief light rain or snow shower is possible this morning as a
weak upper level system moves south across the area. Skies will
clear as high pressure builds in by late today with highs around
40. Dry conditions are expected Saturday before the next system
moves across the area Sunday accompanied by rain. Highs this
weekend will be from around 45 to near 50.

Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 336 am edt Fri mar 22 2019
a weak upper level trof will move south today across lower michigan
into northern indiana early today. Very limited moisture is
available ahead of this system. There is a small chance for a
light rain or snow shower or a sprinkle; however, most areas will
remain dry. High pressure will build into the region late today
and tonight and bring clearing skies as subsidence increases. The
clearing skies, along with a dry and cold airmass will allow
temperatures to fall well down into the 20s tonight as winds
become light.

Long term (Saturday through Thursday)
issued at 336 am edt Fri mar 22 2019
an upper low will move out of the great basin region and into the
central plains Saturday. This system will reach the forecast area
Sunday and bring a round of rain starting by late Sunday. Thermal
profiles favor essentially an all-rain event, although it is
possible for snow to briefly mix with rain late Sunday night
before ending. It does not appear that there will be any travel
issues early Monday with most roads staying just wet. Rainfall
amounts should be around or under a quarter of an inch near the
michigan line up to three-quarters of an inch from near portland
to lima. Chilly temperatures are ahead Monday and Tuesday as cold
air spreads back across the area. Temperatures will then rise above
normal by late this coming week with chances for rain increasing
once again ahead of the next system.

Aviation (for the 12z tafs through 12z Saturday morning)
issued at 608 am edt Fri mar 22 2019
upstream SW trough now over NRN lwr mi will continue sewd through
the ERN lakes today resulting in a return of lowerVFR bound
stratocu by mid morning as potent secondary cold front comes
through. Expect gusty NW winds to develop within intense post
frontal cold advection wing with peak gusts AOA 25kts mid morning
through late aftn.

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.
