Synopsis
Issued at 317 am edt Tue oct 16 2018
high pressure will bring mostly sunny skies but cool temperatures
today with highs in the 50s. A weak cold front will drop south
tonight and bring even cooler temperatures for Wednesday with
highs mainly in the 40s. Frost and freezing temperatures are
expected again late Wednesday night and early Thursday. The cool
pattern will continue through the upcoming weekend with a small
chance for lake effect rain and snow showers.

Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 314 am edt Tue oct 16 2018
high pressure slides south today but will still give the area
mostly sunny skies and cool high temperatures in the 50s. Fast
moving short wave tonight across southern ontario will help push a
weak, moisture starved cold front south overnight. About the only
impacts from this front will be wind shift to northwest and
another influx of cold air.

Long term (Wednesday through Monday)
issued at 314 am edt Tue oct 16 2018
thermal trough sets up over the region Wednesday in wake of
departing cold front. With trajectories off of lake michigan
should see a substantial stratocu deck develop downwind. This
will help keep temps in the 40s most locations. Bufkit profiles
suggest shallow moisture so pcpn chances rather low despite decent
lake induced instability as sfc-850mb delta TS reach 20c.

Slight airmass modification expected late week with high pressure
sliding back in and weak warm air advection developing. Will
likely see another cold night with widespread frost and freezing
temps late Wednesday night into Thursday morning. Plenty of sun
with increased ridging should allow temps to rebound into the 50s
Thursday.

Pattern repeats Friday into the weekend with a cold front late
Friday and another surge of colder air for the weekend. Still
indications of a little deeper moisture with good instability over
lake to warrant rain and snow shower mention, especially Saturday
night. Modification follows again for early next week.

Aviation (for the 18z tafs through 18z Wednesday afternoon)
issued at 118 pm edt Tue oct 16 2018
flight conditions will remainVFR throughout the forecast period.

Gusty SW winds this afternoon will subside this evening. Winds
veering by morning to the NW as a cold front passes through the
area. Frontal passage will result in gusty winds tomorrow.

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.
