What's New / NOTES
6/25/2017 - NOAA is having a major issue that impact the 7 day forecast load times. Many users are reporting problems. The issue has been reported.
5/23/2017 - Worked with NOAA again to speed up the 7 day forecast load times. Thanks to them for being responsive.
5/19/2016 - There were issues with the 3 day airport observation history. I switched to another data source. Let me know if you see any issues with the data feeds.

Aviation
Moderate southwesterly flow will persist through the forecast
period. Wind gusts to 25 knots will emerge during the afternoon
hours as diurnal mixing builds the boundary layer into higher
momentum just off the surface. After sunset, the winds in the 1-2kft
layer will increase dramatically (approaching 60kt at 2kft).

Therefore, likely a pronounced speed shear layer starting around
1kft. No restrictions due to clouds or reduced visibility.

Dtw threshold probabilities...

* none.

discussion...

as alaska NW canada serve as the primary conduit of energy into the
consolidating hudson bay vortex, baroclinic westerlies will
strengthen and contract north over the next several days. During
this time, multiple mid-level impulses will track over or north of
the area with high confidence in a mean storm track north of lake
superior for the remainder of the week. Effects in southeast
michigan will be high variability in temperatures centered about
seasonal average values as a series of low impact cold front sweep
across the area Tuesday into next week. The first shortwave in this
prolonged sequence is evident over northwest canada digging into
alberta early this morning. Downstream ridging will translate across
southeast michigan forcing return flow to get underway in earnest as
high pressure slips east. 850mb temperatures are modeled to rebound
toward 5c by this evening after being below -10c 24 hours prior.

Gusty southwest gradient wind and mostly sunny skies will only help
matters as temperatures moderate by about 10 degrees compared to
yesterday, or low to mid 40s. The gradient will be sufficiently
strong to maintain a mechanically mixed boundary layer through
tonight, suggesting siding with the warmer guidance in the mid to
upper 30s. Airmass exchange will already be complete by Tuesday
raising potential high temps a few degrees further, toward 50
degrees, increasing high clouds limiting the potential to go any
higher. Once again leaned toward the warmer guidance; in this case
mos and raw ECMWF output - some members of the nwp suite actually
have snowpack and thus keep temps far too low. Cold FROPA tues aftn
will be rather uneventful as the time window for good dynamic
forcing will be just be a couple of hours as the developing surface
front sweeps through coincident with strongly convergent mid-level
forcing aloft. Chc pops remain appropriate with just a
narrow transient band of light rain transitioning to light non-
accumulating snow expected. Cold advection will dump 850mb temps
back toward -10c for Wednesday before the pattern approximately
repeats itself and a moderating trend back into the 40s to possibly
50 degrees gets underway for the second half of the week. Long range
modeling continues to suggest a couple more cold shots before
downstream effects of a pac jet extension forces the polar low to
retreat suggesting a period of milder wx to close out the final days
of the month.

winds will remain fresh today, as the region is sandwiched between
high pressure slipping through to the south and an approaching low
pressure system from the west. The current westerly flow will back
to southwesterly early in the day. Expectations are for a corridor
of higher speeds emerging from saginaw bay into the central body of
lake huron, with sustained winds increasing to near 30 knots. Near
surface stability will be increasing as warmer air washes across the
region. Therefore, wind gust potential will be limited to lower-end
gale gusts - mainly constrained to the central half of lake huron
(including outer saginaw bay). Elsewhere, the fresh flow will
support small craft headlines. In the wake of the surface cold front
on Tuesday, the flow will veer to northwesterly with the strongest
flow confined to the northern half of lake huron - again gusts in
the 35-40 knot range. Significant waves on lake huron will peak
around 10 feet during the gale event with occasional waves exceeding
15 feet in the central basin. Otherwise, the near surface will
destabilize behind the cold front, reintroducing lake-effect showers
across the entire basin.

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.
