What's New / NOTES
10/6/2018 Colors of tide XTide graphs changed to emphasize that they were upgraded. See next note. Comments welcome.
10/4/2018 I have fixed XTide and updated the harmonic files. There were some name changes so you might have to click EDIT to find the new station name.

Aviation
Cirrus deck will thicken overnight into early Thursday morning with
perhaps some streamers of few-sct stratus backing into area as east
to southeast flow increases off of lake erie. Lower CIGS will work
north by midday Thursday as a low pressure system passes just south
of the area. With this, a mixture of rain snow can be expected with
MVFR to borderline ifr conditions. Timing will be about 16z-18z for
i-94 and 18z-20z kfnt north.

For dtw... Maintained rain snow mix starting 18z Thursday as the
precipitation shield northwest of a passing low pressure system
lifts into the area. Confidence is low in ptype as relatively mild
surface temperatures will duel with varying precipitation rates to
bring periods of light rain, rain snow, or even straight snow at
times.

Dtw threshold probabilities
* low for ptype of rain snow mix Thursday afternoon.

* low for CIGS below 5000 ft through tonight increasing to high by
Thursday afternoon.

discussion...

benign weather conditions will exist for the tonight period, as
southeast michigan briefly resides between energetic northern stream
westerly flow and a closed mid level circulation now centered over
arkansas. General large scale subsidence contained within this
pattern will solidify the resident cool and dry environment right
through the morning hours Thursday. Radiational cooling potential
not nearly as ideal tonight, given the eastward displacement of the
surface high to the east and the eventual influx of cirrus cloud
from the south. Potential for the coldest locales to bottom out in
the mid-upper teens, elsewhere lows settling into the 20s.

Steady east-northeast ejection of the upper low takes the center of
this system through the southern ohio valley on Thursday. The
projected pace of this movement continues to indicate that
sufficient separation of potential vorticity will exist between this
feature and the trailing strong inbound wave of north pacific
origin. This will tend to focus the stronger dynamic response
downstream across the east coast. Brief window for moderate
isentropic ascent in the presence of emerging mid level deformation
forcing will progressively lift northwest into southeast michigan
through the day. A solid surge of theta-e advection anchored on this
forcing will subsequently support an expanding swath of
precipitation over the region during this time. Deep layer of sub-
freezing wet bulb temperatures will leave the onset precipitation
type as snow, but with a tendency for rain to mix in at times by
afternoon once fully saturated as temperatures within the boundary
layer nudge above freezing - particular southeast of the glacial
ridge. Daytime accumulation mainly reserved to grassy surfaces with
temperatures above freezing, with a strong reliance on the
development of some heavier snowfall rates to witness accums on
pavement. Highs Thursday in the mid 30s.

Deformation axis will arc from southern lake michigan into the tri-
cities by Thursday evening, before washing back eastward while
weakening overnight. Greatest potential for more meaningful
accumulation will exist within this axis early Thursday night, as
longer residence time of forcing more efficiently capitalizes on a
cooling nocturnal boundary layer condition. Provided an upward nudge
in forecast snowfall totals accordingly for the saginaw valley and
northern thumb - still within the 1-2 inch range at this stage.

A trailing strong shortwave surges across the region Friday morning.

Quick shot of light snow possible given the strength of the compact
forcing contained along the height fall gradient. Greater potential
with northward extent although a mixed signal yet within the model
spectrum on the overall potential. A period of weak post-frontal
cold air advection countered by the diurnal timing, allowing for
modest temperature recovery. Highs mid-upper 30s, under gusty
westerly winds.

Cool conditions - temps on the order of 10 degrees below normal -
will continue through the extended period. A longwave trough will
remain nearly stationary over hudson bay, with a series of
shortwaves rotating through the flow over the great lakes helping to
maintain it into next week. The coldest temps will be held off just
to the north with mostly zonal flow over our area. Still, highs
Saturday through mid next week will have a hard time rising out of
the 30s and lows will settle in the 20s. A few chances for light
precip exist during this period as well as the shortwaves provide
some lift, with the best chances looking like Saturday and again
late Monday with cold fronts moving in from the northwest.

Marine...

high pressure centered over the eastern lakes will keep winds and
waves in check through this evening. Winds will switch around to
southerly on the backside of the high tonight with a brief increase
in wind speeds expected. Winds will stay below 25 knots and any
larger waves should remain primarily over the open waters due to the
wind direction. There could be a brief window Thursday morning when
winds become more southeasterly which could cause some larger waves
to clip the nearshore waters from outer saginaw bay down to harbor
beach. Waves height will be marginal and duration too short to issue
an advisory. A cold front will then push across the region on
Friday, resulting in a veering of the winds from south to west-
northwest and modest uptick in wind speeds.

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.
