Near term (tonight through Wednesday)
issued at 321 pm edt Tue apr 24 2018

Rain chances end tonight...

high impact weather potential... None
pattern synopsis forecast... A narrow band of moisture starved air
directly behind a cold front associated with a weak area of low
pressure over the great lakes region will diminish cloud cover
from northwest to southeast throughout the rest of the evening and
into the early nighttime hours. Rain chances mainly south of a
line extending from alpena to cadillac continue, but will also end
throughout the evening hours as it continues it's march towards
the east. An associated upper level low with accompanying deeper
moisture behind said system will once again cloud the skies and
possibly produce some drizzle (according to forecast soundings)
over northern lower by sunrise and then dissipate throughout
Wednesday as high pressure ridges into the forecast area from the
upper midwest. High temperatures Wednesday afternoon will be in
the upper 40s.

Short term (Wednesday night through Friday)
issued at 321 pm edt Tue apr 24 2018

Wednesday night through Friday
Warmer then cooler...

primary forecast concern... Pops late Thursday night into early Friday.

It looks like a roller coaster ride as far as temperatures go over
the next several days which is fairly typical of this time of the
year. This is mostly good news as far as ridding ourselves of the
highly unusual late april snowpack in the higher terrain. As far
as the details go, high pressure will lead to precipitation free
conditions Wednesday night into Thursday so after a chilly night
daytime highs should be warmer once again. A short wave and
associated surface cold front then swing through later Thursday
night into early Friday bringing small chances for showers as well
as cooler temperatures. Lows Wednesday night in the 20s to lower
30s. Highs Thursday ranging from the middle 50s to lower 60s. Lows
Thursday night mainly in the 30s with highs Friday only in the
middle 40s to lower 50s.

Long term (Friday night through Tuesday)
issued at 321 pm edt Tue apr 24 2018
the extended period will begin with precip pulling out of the
area. Blended solutions bring dry air in pretty rapidly... But i'm
thinking some wrap around moisture... Along with a bit of a north
flow lake contribution might cause moisture to lag a bit into
Saturday... At least in the form of low level cloud cover. That
said... Transient high pressure will move across the region through
the second half of the weekend and into the new work week.

Temperatures will moderate rapidly from Saturday to Monday... With
the warmest air of the year on the schedule for Monday and
Tuesday.

Aviation (for the 00z tafs through 00z Wednesday evening)
issued at 713 pm edt Tue apr 24 2018

MainlyVFR conditions expected...

high based showers will come to an end this evening. Secondary
band of moisture will swing south later tonight, perhaps bringing
a round of MVFR CIGS by morning, especially across kapn. Clouds
expected to gradually erode Wednesday. North to northwest winds
expected, at times a bit gusty.

Marine
Issued at 321 pm edt Tue apr 24 2018
as high pressure starts to work in from the northwest, north to
northeasterly winds will increase this into tonight. Advisory-
level winds waves are expected in some zones over lake michigan
tonight and then lake huron by morning Wednesday and last
throughout the day. Rain chances will remain over lake huron
through tonight.

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.
