Synopsis
Issued at 212 pm edt Wed aug 21 2019
a cold front will drop south through the region into this evening,
with chances for shower and thunderstorms along it. Better chances
for showers and storms may arrive tonight, especially locations
south of route 30 with showers then lingering into Thursday. Otherwise,
cooler and less humid weather is in store for Thursday through
Saturday.

Short term (this evening through Thursday)
issued at 256 pm edt Wed aug 21 2019
monitoring two features in the short term. The first is a cold
front that is slowly dropping south out of southern wisconsin and
central michigan. The second feature is a complex of showers and
thunderstorms associated with an mesoscale convective vortex
centered over western illinois. Model guidance leaves something
to be desired at this time, but hint at widely scattered storms
along the cold front, and much of the leftover MCV activity
tracking through the southern half of the county warning area
tonight. Thursday will be less humid for locations toward the in-
mi state line, before spreading south. Until the cold front fully
pushes through the area, will carry some pops in the vicinity of
the front.

Long term (Thursday night through Wednesday)
issued at 212 pm edt Wed aug 21 2019
high pressure will finally suppress any precip chances, with the next
chance for rain now arriving until late Monday into Monday night as
series of upper level waves carve out the ridging aloft. Few changes
to model blends at this stage with variations in highest pops likely
given likely timing differences.

With regards to temps, cooler and less humid conditions will prevail
with highs in the 70s through Sunday before warmer temps and higher
humidity begin to creep back in with the expected increase in rain
chances.

Aviation (for the 18z tafs through 18z Thursday afternoon)
issued at 136 pm edt Wed aug 21 2019
18z tafs subject to change, especially at kfwa as low confidence
forecast exists regarding potential impacts of upstream wave set
to move in tonight along with cold front dropping south of the
next 12 hours. Models vary on exact impacts to the area with no
impacts (generalVFR conditions) at both sites, to potential for
ifr CIGS at one or both sites along with rain and maybe a few
storms. Have trended slightly more aggressive at kfwa bringing in
MVFR conditions with showers after 2z. May need to do something
similar at ksbn if more of the area appears to be impacted. Cigs
may not be low enough later tonight into the start of Thursday
with conditions possibly lingering through 18z.

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.
