Synopsis
Issued at 330 pm edt Fri jun 23 2017
colder than normal temperatures can be expected this weekend
through early next week, with widely scattered showers and
thunderstorms. Rainfall will not be excessive.

Short term (this evening through Sunday night)
issued at 330 pm edt Fri jun 23 2017
trough aloft and series of vorticity maxima shortwaves sliding
through the northwest flow will bring periods of cloudiness and
scattered showers over the weekend.

Best coverage of convection, and the best time for a few tstms,
should generally be in the afternoon and evening hours when the
diurnal contribution instability is highest. Also,the lake shadow
should tend to focus things inland from lake michigan.

Lowering freezing heights through the weekend may eventually lead to
a chance of some small hail in some of the low topped convection,
which would be more possible on Sunday than on Saturday.

Scattered intermittent nature of the convection of the weekend
should lead to total qpfs of generally no more than a quarter
inch, with highest amounts north of i-96.

Long term (Monday through Friday)
issued at 330 pm edt Fri jun 23 2017
Monday will see cooler than normal weather with diurnal enhancement
of showers and a few thunderstorms as upper level troughing brings
steep lapse rates. No severe weather is expected although the
storms could bring small hail during the afternoon as freezing
levels are unusually low.

The trough axis moves east by Tuesday with shortwave ridging
returning Wednesday along with warming temperatures. We will also
see moisture return in southwest flow with chances for rain by
Wednesday afternoon. Surface low center tracks north of lower
michigan on Thursday and showers and thunderstorms along and ahead
of trailing cold front will persist into Friday as the front sags
south of lower michigan and stalls across the ohio valley.

Aviation (for the 18z tafs through 18z Saturday afternoon)
issued at 143 pm edt Fri jun 23 2017
MVFR conditions with ceilings 1500 to 2500 feet will continue
early this afternoon thenVFR conditions are expected this evening
through Saturday morning. Some showers and isolated thunderstorms
will develop by 18z Saturday.

Winds will be west to northwest through Saturday and gust over 20
knots at times this afternoon and again Saturday afternoon.

Marine
Issued at 330 pm edt Fri jun 23 2017
wave heights will probably flirt with small craft advisory
criteria much of the weekend, especially on Sunday, and we may
need to issue some headlines eventually. Typically in a cold air
advection pattern this time of year, the waves tend to over
perform and current water temps around 70 will lead to well mixed
conditions similar to what we normally see in the later
summer early fall.

Hydrology
Issued at 257 pm edt Fri jun 23 2017
major flooding is expected along the chippewa river in isabella
county and sharp rises are also occurring along the muskegon basin
and will continue the next couple days as the crest moves down
the river. From 3 to 5 inches of rain fell last night combined
with earlier heavy rains.

The good news is that no heavy rain is expected through the
middle of next week which will allow those areas that are flooding
to recover. The next chance for significant rain will be Thursday
of next week.

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.
