645 am edt Sun may 26 2019

Near term (today through tonight)
issued at 241 am edt Sun may 26 2019

Dry thru tonight with near seasonal temps...

high impact weather potential... None.

Pattern synopsis forecast... Low pressure has reached james bay early
this morning. Associated cold front has pushed just SE of our cwa.

The arrival of drier air and building subsidence in the wake of this
front has brought an end to all precip across our CWA and has
resulted in mainly clear skies across the western great lakes region.

Little will change today and tonight as high pressure and dry air
thru the column remain firmly in control. Skies will remain mostly
clear thru tonight... With no precip expected. CAA in the wake of the
cold front will result in a noticeably cooler but still rather
pleasant day across the northwoods. Afternoon highs will warm into
the upper 60s and lower 70s this afternoon... With overnight lows in
the mid 40s to around 50 degrees.

Short term (Monday through Tuesday)
issued at 241 am edt Sun may 26 2019
high impact weather potential: thunderstorms possible Tuesday.

Primary forecast concerns challenges: timing of precipitation Monday
afternoon evening.

Pattern synopsis forecast...

high pressure and dry air will give way to an area of low pressure
from the central great plains and return flow Monday. Models are in
decent agreement with increased cloudiness during the morning hours
and precipitation beginning during the afternoon early evening hours
as it spreads southwest to northeast. A warm front from
aforementioned low pressure will produce chances of showers and
possibly thunderstorms as it treks closer to northern michigan.

Highest chances for heavier rain and thunder will be Tuesday as
pwats creep to near 1.50 inches and synoptic forcings improve. High
temperatures will be a bit cooler than Sunday. Temperatures will
only warm into the 60s for both Monday and Tuesday.

Long term (Tuesday night through Saturday)
issued at 241 am edt Sun may 26 2019
high impact weather potential: minimal. An overall wet and cool-ish
week ahead.

Northern michigan will remain on the northern periphery of ridging
anchored over the SE gulf coast states through at least midweek with
more of less zonal flow across the great lakes and stalled boundary
draped across the lower lakes ohio valley region. Longer range
guidance continues to advertise a fairly substantial closed low and
core of cold air dropping down out of canada into the great lakes
for the latter half of the week. Temperatures look to continue to be
below normal... Only reaching into the 60s.

Aviation (for the 12z tafs through 12z Monday morning)
issued at 645 am edt Sun may 26 2019
high pressure... Subsidence and drier air will continue to build
into northern michigan over the next 24 hours... Resulting in dry
weather and solidVFR conditions. NW wind AOB 10 kts today will
become light variable tonight.

Marine
Issued at 241 am edt Sun may 26 2019
winds and waves will remain below SCA criteria through Monday night.

Building high pressure will result in no precip today... Tonight and
Monday morning. A warm front and associated moisture will lift
northward into the western great lakes region on Monday... Providing
our next chance of precip beginning Monday afternoon.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
