Synopsis
Issued at 133 am edt Sat jun 24 2017
cooler and less humid conditions will dominate into early next
week. Clouds will increase this afternoon, but little if any
precipitation is expected. Slightly better chances for showers
arrives Sunday afternoon. Highs Saturday in the lower to middle
70s. &&

Short term (this evening through Saturday)
issued at 237 pm edt Fri jun 23 2017
west-northwest flow will persist through Saturday, ushering in
cooler and less humid air. Boundary layer will be well mixed do
not expect to see any fog formation by morning.

Afternoon heating will lead to formation of cu... Especially lee
of lake michigan. Lack of deep moisture and instability will keep
the threat of measurable precipitation to nearly nil. As the
clouds increase during the peak heating Saturday, this will keep
temperatures from climbing too rapidly and have kept with the
previous trend of low-mid 70s for highs.

Long term (Saturday night through Friday)
issued at 237 pm edt Fri jun 23 2017
the trof over the great lakes will deepen and amplify slightly in
response to the ridging over the rockies. This amplification will
result in continued influx of cooler air. With this amplification
the models are hinting at short waves embedded in the flow.

Similar to past several events of troffing over the great lakes
will see the clouds increase and there will be isold scattered
light showers late Sunday with the threat continuing through
Monday. This is not a heavy rain event and do not expect to see
deep convection either.

The next threat of significant convection will be as the ridging
shifts eastward. Temperatures and moisture will increase... Leading
to increased instability and greater threat for thunderstorm late
Wednesday into Friday. At this time there is low confidence in
talking about timing and intensity. This will need to be watched
and monitored as we get closer to the event. A head's up for
planning for events that may be planned late in the week as we
approach the 4th of july weekend.

Aviation (for the 06z tafs through 06z Saturday night)
issued at 133 am edt Sat jun 24 2017
band of mid clouds was working east across the area in association
with progressive wind shift secondary cold front. Clouds have been
stubborn to leave ksbn but will not include in tafs as back edge
should be nearly clear of the site soon. Have added in mention at
kfwa through remainder of the night. Skies will clear in the wake
of this front, only to fill back in with sct-bkn CU as steep lapse
rates and limited moisture stir up development. Can't rule out a
stray shower, but not worthy of any mention. Skies will partially
clear after 00z.

Winds will pick up somewhat during the late morning into afternoon
hours, gusting to around 20 knots.

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.
