Synopsis
Issued at 628 am edt Wed apr 25 2018
skies will gradually clear today but it will remain breezy and
cool. High temperatures will range from the upper 40s near lake
michigan to the lower 60s over eastern indiana and northwest ohio.

The rest of the week through the weekend will feature mainly dry
conditions and temperatures averaging a little below normal for
late april. This will change early next week as much warmer air
arrives and temperatures look to climb well into the 70s and
possibly even flirt with 80 degrees to start may.

Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 354 am edt Wed apr 25 2018
lingering moisture along with areas of light drizzle from an
upper low that was over virgina early this morning will end early
today as a cold front passes and subsidence increases later today.

Highs today will be near 60. A brief intrusion of cold air will
allow lows to dip to near freezing tonight. Have added patchy
frost tonight in this regard.

Long term (Thursday through Tuesday)
issued at 354 am edt Wed apr 25 2018
a second cold front will move across the area Friday with a few
more showers with this system into early Friday night. Moisture
flux ahead of this system should be very limited allowing a
somewhat narrow band of showers to develop along or just ahead of
the front. Patchy frost is likely Friday night and Saturday night
as temperatures drop into the mid 30s. Otherwise, much warmer
weather is ahead with highs rising well above normal early next
week as an upper level ridge builds over the region. Have gone
above the model blend guidance with highs approaching 80 Tuesday.

Aviation (for the 18z tafs through 18z Thursday afternoon)
issued at 100 pm edt Wed apr 25 2018

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.
