Synopsis
Issued at 133 am est Mon dec 10 2018
quiet weather conditions will remain the weather story through
Tuesday as high pressure remains in control. Highs will be in the
30s with lows in the upper teens to mid 20s. The second half of the
week will then feature chances for light snow Wednesday followed by
rain showers Thursday and Friday with highs warming into the 40s.

Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 133 am est Mon dec 10 2018
large lake aggregate stratus pool across mi will continue to advance
rapidly south through daybreak as sfc ridge sinks toward the oh
river by evening. Some erosion expected this aftn west and north as
stronger SW low level flow mixing develops. Nonetheless some
downward adjustment in temps ESP SE third warranted today.

Aftn eve clearing north and west expected to fill in again overnight
in association with weak sfc trough passage across the great lakes
as abundant moisture remains entrenched below stubborn broad low
level thermal inversion present across the upper midwest lakes.

Long term (Tuesday through Sunday)
issued at 133 am est Mon dec 10 2018
quiet wx through early Wed with ridging sfc and aloft in control.

Lead impulse driving through the NRN rockies this aftn will amplify
ewd into the WRN lakes late Wed as strong warm advection spreads a
band of light snow across the area. Lack of more appreciable
moisture return and narrow window of strong saturated ascent will
keep potential snow amounts in check with 1-2 inches plausible.

Late week period thereafter rife with uncertainty tied to handling
of intense wave wrapping up through the lower ms valley and degree
of potential phasing if any that may occur with concurrent wave
passing through the NRN lakes. Overall deterministic consensus trend
(growing) the last 2 days has been for more separation aloft with
strong cyclone holding south near the gulf coast however
considerable ensemble spread remains with a more phased NRN oh
valley track not yet out of the cards. Latest model based blend
essentially washes these distinctions out as gem solution counters
gfs ec and at least affords some fading continuity with prior
guidance for dys 4-5 (thu fri).

Aviation (for the 06z tafs through 06z Monday night)
issued at 1225 am est Mon dec 10 2018
stratus clouds continue to seep in from the north at this hour.

Upstream of sbn, most observations show ceilings of 700-1,000 ft.

As such, look for sbn to ping-pong in and out of ifr for the next
several hours. This stratus deck is on pace to reach fwa within a
few hours; only a minor time adjustment from the previous taf
issuance. As the 925 mb ridge builds in from the west and south, the
stratus is expected to lift during the mid-morning hours.

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.
