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.

Discussion
Main focus for this forecast will be heat advisory conditions coming
to a close by the end of today and the potential for some
thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. Upper ridge and high
pressure remain anchored over the southeastern CONUS with good
moisture wrapping around the northern end of the ridge into SE mi.

Warm airmass with 850mb temperatures up to around 20c still forecast
across the southern mi this afternoon. Visible satellite shows a
fair amount of clouds present over mi with thicker clouds across the
thumb and tri-cities and a little more clearing towards the south.

Heat indices across the i-69 corridor and south remain on track to
stay in the upper 90s and low 100s during the remainder of the
afternoon with the combined moisture and heating. Heat advisory will
be allowed to expire early this evening with a cold front set to
progress south throughout the day into tonight that will usher in a
cooler airmass.

A few isolated showers have been able to develop within a moisture
corridor and elevated across far lower mi, though have not amounted
to more than brief showers. The aforementioned cold front will
provide a focus for increasing shower and thunderstorm activity
through the remainder of the afternoon and into the evening with a
few storms already underway across the lower thumb. The environment
ahead of the front in lower mi will be characterized by moderate
instability with SBCAPE values reaching into 1500-2000 j kg range,
but lacking in both shear and steep mid-level lapse rates. The
isolated showers should increase in coverage to more scattered
showers and thunderstorms with the advancement of the front into
this evening. Cloud cover should hamper greater thunderstorm
potential across the tri-cities and northern thumb. Greater thunderstorm
potential will reside across far lower mi where enough clearing has
occurred and good diurnal CU has developed. The conditions are
conducive for a few isolated strong to potentially severe
thunderstorms which could produce some locally strong winds given the
potential for water loading within the high moisture environment.

Once the front advances south of the state line, weather should
begin to quiet down over much of southeast mi for Tuesday. There
will remain some chances for precipitation across the far lower
portion of mi with the front hanging around northern in oh.

Temperatures will drop back into the 70s with northerly flow
sending cooler air southward. Precipitation chances increase again
come Tuesday night into Wednesday as the front is drawn back
northward with a shortwave. Cooler conditions remain for Wednesday
with high temperatures mainly in the 70s.

High pressure will continue to expand southward across the region
Thursday with dry conditions and relatively cool easterly flow.

Temperatures Thursday will continue to run a few degrees below
normal with highs in the 70s and lows Thursday night generally in
the 50s outside of near 60 degree readings in the detroit metro.

Thursday night into Friday, the aforementioned high pressure will
begin sliding off to the east as deep upper-level troughing closed
low over the central CONUS begins to approach the great lakes from
the mid-mississippi valley. Cyclogenesis will likely occur as the
system progresses northeastward over lower michigan Friday through
Saturday with increasingly unsettled weather with scattered to
numerous showers and embedded thunder. This system looks to be
relatively progressive in nature, and will attempt to exit the
region Sunday as dry canadian high pressure tries to build southward
over the great lakes. Highly amplified north american flow heading
into early next week will yield an uncertain forecast that will
ultimately be dependent on the relative position of the main
ridge trough axes over the eastern conus.

Temperatures will continue to remain slightly below normal Friday
and Saturday with the unsettled pattern in place, but begin
moderating back towards normal for the second half of the weekend
into early next week.

Marine
Moderate southwest flow will veer to the northwest with the
passage of a cold front late today. Gusts late today will be limited
to 20 knots or so due to stable over water conditions. A few showers
or thunderstorms may accompany this front into the evening hours.

Winds will veer further to the northwest tonight into Tuesday with
onshore flow of up to 15 knots. Winds will then become weak Tuesday
night into Wednesday before picking up again from the northeast on
Thursday in the wake of another backdoor cold front.

Hydrology
Showers and thunderstorms will accompany a cold frontal passage
late this afternoon into this evening. While this activity will be
scattered in nature, expect one quarter to one half of an inch of
rainfall in some locations. Locally higher amounts will be possible
with some of the strongest storms.

effective low level front convergence will bring widely scattered
showers to i-94 corridor early in the forecast. Main cold front will
then shift south through the area late afternoon into this evening,
bringing a period of shra tsra chances during the first half of the
evening. Once this front convection shifts south, MVFR stratus will
settle south through the area. These low level clouds should then
slowly lift break out on Tuesday. Winds will veer from southwest to
northwest to northeast over the next 12-18z with this fropa.

For dtw... Southwest winds today of 20 to 25 knots weakening and
veering to west northwest this evening. There will be a few showers
in vicinity of terminal this afternoon with a several hour window
for tsras with cold FROPA this evening. MVFR CIGS will then settle
into the area post front tonight.

Dtw threshold probabilities...

* moderate for ceilings AOB 5000 feet this afternoon, high
overnight tonight.

* low for thunderstorms ~23z-02z this evening.
