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.

Near term (through tonight)
issued at 321 pm edt Tue jun 19 2018

Some light showers thru early evening south of m-72...

high impact weather potential... None.

Pattern synopsis forecast... High pressure remains centered over lake
superior this afternoon... While a stationary front is holding just
south of the great lakes region. Our CWA remains along the northern
fringe of the moisture shield associated with the stationary front.

Limited moisture combined with weak lift continues to produce an
area of showers... The northern edge of which is stream thru southern
sections of our cwa... Mainly south of m-72. Meanwhile... Skies are
generally clear across eastern upper michigan under the influence of
strengthening subsidence and dry air thru the column. Places in
between across far northern lower michigan are partly to mostly
sunny and dry with some mid high clouds drifting thru the region
thanks to blow off from convection to the south.

As we head into tonight... Sct nmrs showers will continue to impact
locations mainly south of m-72 into the evening hours... And will
gradually sink southward later in the evening and overnight as high
pressure continues to drop southward into northern michigan. Clouds
will diminish from north to south as well... But our far southern cwa
will hold onto at least some partial cloud cover all night. Temps
will be near normal for this time of year... With overnight lows in
the low to mid 50s.

Short term (Wednesday through Friday)
issued at 321 pm edt Tue jun 19 2018

Seasonal late june weather across the great lakes...

high impact weather potential: none expected through the period, the
next chance for precipitation will be late Friday night and early
Saturday.

Primary forecast concerns challenges: forecast concerns will be
limited through the period, as surface and upper level ridging
remain the main influence over the northern great lakes through the
work week.

Pattern synopsis forecast... The northern great lakes will largely be
dominated by subsidence through the end of the work week, as a large
area of high pressure (which settled into the NRN plains Monday)
drifts south into the state through the end of the work week. Models
do suggest a weak boundary drifting across the ERN lakes Wednesday,
with 850 700mb qvectors showing some weakly organized forcing
influencing northern michigan Wednesday afternoon in response to
this feature. Model soundings show a stable and basically dry
vertical profile Wednesday, showing only some increase in mid lvl
mstr as the boundary drops south across the area. Otherwise model
soundings and mstr progs indicated continued dry airmass setting up
across northern michigan through Friday, as additional subsidence at
upper level settles into the region.

Overall will continue with current line of thinking and keep the
forecast area dry through the period. However there is some evidence
in the latest model runs that enough moisture and energy will lift
north into central lower michigan Friday in advance of the feature
lifting into the ohio valley, to generate a slight chance of rain
over the extreme SRN portion of the forecast area early Friday
evening.

Long term (Friday night through Tuesday)
issued at 321 pm edt Tue jun 19 2018
seasonal temperatures in the mid to upper 70s are expected across
the entire great lakes region through period, as mid lvl temps range
between 8c and 12c at 850mb. A fairly interesting day is setting up
across the region for Saturday, as a feature in the central plains
becomes better organized Thursday and lifts up across lower michigan
Saturday. Cyclonic flow on the backside of this feature exiting
northeast into quebec Sunday, will continue the chance of some pcpn
into Sunday. Some Sun and drier conditions are expected Monday and
Tuesday as surface and upper ridging return to the area.

Aviation (for the 00z tafs through 00z Wednesday evening)
issued at 737 pm edt Tue jun 19 2018
vfr conditions expected through the period with only some passing
high and mid level clouds. Light winds through the period.

Marine
Issued at 321 pm edt Tue jun 19 2018
winds and waves will remain below SCA criteria thru late week as
high pressure gradually builds into northern michigan. Remaining
showers will come to an end this evening... With some decrease in
cloud cover from north to south as well.

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.
