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.

LCZ423 522 Pm Edt Sat Jun 23 2018
.showers producing heavy rainfall during late afternoon... The areas affected include... Detroit river... Michigan waters of lake erie... At 520 pm edt, doppler radar indicated a shower producing heavy rainfall near estral beach or 8 nm northwest of Monroe harbor, moving east at 10 knots. This and additional showers over Monroe and wayne counties will move over marine areas and produce low visibility and possibly wind gusts near 30 knots. An isolated Thunderstorm is also possible. Locations impacted include... Elizabeth park marina, estral beach, bolles harbor of refuge, woodland beach, Monroe harbor, lake erie metropark harbor, detroit river light, detroit beach, stony point and wyandotte. Precautionary/preparedness actions... Mariners can expect gusty winds up to 30 knots, locally higher waves, isolated lightning strikes, and heavy downpours. Boaters should seek safe harbor immediately until the activity passes. && lat...lon 4189 8337 4189 8338 4206 8319 4219 8315 4211 8317 4211 8316 4213 8314 4225 8314 4232 8308 4227 8312 4236 8296 4225 8313 4212 8313 4200 8318 4192 8327 4197 8326 4195 8327 4174 8346

Discussion
Convection within the convergent corridor along the periphery of the
surface circulation is waning as an open wave structure develops in
the lower troposphere in response to a more diffuse pattern of mid-
level forcing. Some level of activity will likely persist for the
next several hours within the remnant surface trough, particularly
as modest isentropic ascent increases ahead of the next upstream
wave presently lifting ene through illinois. Limited instability and
loss of heating will further limit intensity and coverage, but very
slow storm motion will still potentially produce locally heavy rain.

Strong nwp consensus on overall evolution tonight through Sunday as
the resident airmass remains in place for one more day. Diminished
moisture quality owing to developing dry northeast flow should be
more than offset by stronger forcing. Any remnant activity within
the aforementioned surface trough will tend to consolidate over the
thumb and possibly portions of northern lower as mid-level
deformation becomes increasingly well defined tonight through midday
Sunday. Substantial increase in pops warranted across the northern
counties for late tonight into Sunday. Incoming confluent flow in
the wake of this wave will then quickly usher the developing frontal
zone across the area during the afternoon, leading to a transient
shower threat worth an increase in pops to the high chc low likely
range. Steady onshore marine winds may also cause low end lakeshore
flood concerns INVOF essexville in bay county by Sunday aftn.

Building high pressure and 850mb temps around 11c may allow
temperatures to approach the upper 70s under full sun, but cirrus
peeling off a wave undercutting the ridge will be worth watching as
it may suppress temps a few degrees.

Upper-level troughing and an embedded PV anomaly will push from
southern minnesota into northern lower michigan and will bring
likely rain and thunderstorm chances to SE mi both Tuesday and
Wednesday. Increased southwesterly flow will continue to advect warm
and moist air ahead and during the passage of the PV anomaly, as
noted by 850 mb dew points ranging between 10 - 15c and pw values
averaging 1.60 inches.

The PV anomaly and upper-level trough will push east out of michigan
by 06 - 12z Thursday and will bring a period of dry conditions as a
surface high and upper-level ridge builds across the state. High
pressure centered across the eastern ohio valley will allow for
strong WAA to take place towards the end of the week as 850 mb
temperatures soar from 13c Thu 12z up to near 23c by Sat 00z. For
reference, record SPC climatological 850 mb temperatures reside
around 20 - 22 c. Daytime highs in the lower 90s are now reflected
in Friday and Saturday's forecast, however, a bump into the mid-90s
may be necessary over the next day if models continue to suggest 850
temperatures between 21 - 23 c in conjunction with minimal cloud
cover. Overall, confidence is very high in regards to above normal
temperatures by the end of the week.

Marine
Broad and weak low pressure will slowly exit the central great lakes
tonight into tomorrow. Light and variable winds this afternoon into
tonight will become light north northeasterly flow less than 20
knots in the wake of the departing low pressure on Sunday. Still
a chance for showers during the first part of Sunday before dry
weather returns Monday as high pressure returns to the great lakes
region. A warm front lifting through the area will lead to chance
for showers and thunderstorms on Tuesday, with increasing southeast
winds.

Hydrology
Showers will redevelop tonight, especially along and north of i-69,
continuing into early Sunday afternoon. Total rainfall amounts will
generally be a half an inch or less. Although locally higher amounts
will be possible, flooding is not expected. Drier air will work into
the region late Sunday and into Monday as high pressure builds
across michigan.

circulation over wayne county this morning producing numerous
showers is exiting east early this afternoon. However, trailing low
level convergence will still offer up opportunity for scattered
showers slight chance of a thunderstorm. Diurnal surface heating
lifting CIGS into high MVFR lowVFR late this afternoon
outside of any showers. In addition, with the low level convergence
axis tending to shift north this evening, there is opportunity for
yip dtw to dry out even more with light westerly wind developing,
and going to carry optimisticVFR conditions for most of the
evening, with MVFR high ifr CIGS for northern tafs.

However, it is only a matter of time before low clouds sweep back
south, and certainly possible for period of ifr CIGS by sunrise,
with renewed shower development tracking through late
tonight tomorrow morning before final push of dry air and winds
shift to the north-northeast Sunday afternoon.

For dtw... Still very low chance of a thunderstorm developing this
afternoon, with another chance late tomorrow morning early tomorrow
afternoon. Confidence inVFR conditations this evening is average at
best, and MVFR or even ifr CIGS could re-develop sooner than
currently projected.

Dtw threshold probabilities...

* high for ceiling 5000 feet or less through entire period.

* low for thunderstorms this afternoon and late tomorrow morning
early tomorrow afternoon.

Dtx watches warnings advisories
Mi... None.

Lake huron... None.

Lake st clair... None.
