Benton Heights, MI

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Synopsis
Issued at 751 am edt Wed may 23 2018
high pressure over the area will keep conditions dry and sunny
through Friday night. Temperatures will become unseasonably warm
for the holiday weekend, with highs in the mid to upper 80s.

Expect highs in the 70s and low to mid 80s today and Thursday.

Lows will be in the 50s and 60s. There is a chance for showers and
thunderstorms Saturday into Monday, mainly during the afternoon
and early evening timeframe.

Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 333 am edt Wed may 23 2018
primary emphasis on modified marine layer with inland extent
across northwest cwa. Moist boundary layer and temps several
degrees below crossover allowing areas of dense fog stratus to
envelop laporte berrien counties. Farther inland expect more
patchy nature more diffuse marine layer and while upstream
convective debris may limit further temp fall, will continue to
assess for potential areal expansion next couple hours.

Long term (Thursday through Tuesday)
issued at 333 am edt Wed may 23 2018
weak boundary to slide southward through the upper great lakes
associated with shortwave spur through high belted northern stream
flow for slight chance shra tsra this weekend, primarily tied to
diurnal heat instability cycle. Otherwise split flow dominates
with stagnating surface airmass with incremental increases in
heat humidity through the weekend. Eventual impact as tropical
disturbance remnants lift northward still likely beyond current
forecast timeframe.

Aviation (for the 12z tafs through 12z Thursday morning)
issued at 751 am edt Wed may 23 2018
vfr conditions are expected at the terminals for the most
part... With the exception for fog potential this morning. While thus
far the terminals haven't really been impacted as of yet, it still
remains a possibility as many sites are still below 2 miles-
especially across the southwest where koxi kmgc krcr are all at 1 2
mile or less. Will leave MVFR conditions through 13z to account for
this, given continued light winds and surrounding observations.

Iwx watches warnings advisories

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.
