Discussion
The numerous showers and thunderstorms which worked through
southeast michigan this afternoon (a few severe), helped drop
temperatures into the 70s, leading to a significant stabilization of
the airmass (see 19z SPC mesoscale analysis). Thus, confidence is
low that activity with the actual cold front will be severe, not to
mention the coverage of activity is in question this far north. At
least, the 17z rap looks to be trending in the right direction (less
activity). None-the-less, still a short window to destabilize (lower
80s) before sunset, and the upper level dynamics shear (50 knots of
effective shear) needs to be respected as it sweeps through around
00z. On the flip side, could be in the shadow of the organizing
thunderstorm complex developing over central indiana into ohio where
the MAX instability (mlcapes of 2500 j kg) presently resides, which
should help mitigate our severe chances as well.

Strong upper level low (545 dam at 500 mb) over northern manitoba
will be the main influence director to our weather over the several
day, as it swings through ontario during the mid week period,
supporting a significant cool down.

An extension of trough axis will be lifting through the northern
great lakes tonight, with 500 mb heights beginning to rebound over
southern lower michigan on Monday. Thus, the cold front that slips
through southeast michigan tonight, will more or less wash out. With
the lingering low level moisture, especially with the rainfall from
this afternoon, and weak surface convergence, some fog and or low
stratus development appears possible late tonight.

500 mb heights rise to around 588 dam on Monday, but still enough
residual low level moisture 850 mb theta-e and instability around to
support low chance pops along south of i-94.

Pseudo zonal upper level flow with upper level energy PV coming out
of the rockies and tracking through midwest Monday night. It appears
the potential thunderstorm complex will track off to the southeast
during Tuesday and miss the state. This will also help cut off some
of the moisture advection ahead of the cold front, which tracks
through late Tuesday night or Wednesday. Thus, a dry frontal passage
remains possible.

Warmer temperatures, with highs in the 80s, will remain in place on
Wednesday before cooler temps come back for the remainder of the
week. By Thursday, 850mb temps will be back in the single digits. A
slight chance of precipitation also remains in the forecast
Wednesday afternoon, as a wave passes over. The rest of the
forecast period going into the weekend will feature pleasant
temperatures and dry weather as high pressure settles in over the
region.

Marine
A low pressure system lifting through lake superior this afternoon
will pull a cold front through the region this evening. This front
may produce another round of thunderstorms this evening before
pushing east of the area. Southwesterly winds will veer westerly
behind this front tonight and to the northwest on Monday as a
secondary front drops through the region. Winds will be strongest
this evening out of the southwest with gusts reaching 25 knots.

Though cooler air will advect in behind the front tonight, high
pressure building in will weaken the gradient and prevent stronger
gusts tonight and Monday. Though mostly a dry forecast beyond
tonight, additional showers and thunderstorms will continue to be
possible over lake erie and st. Clair with the frontal boundary
stalling nearby.

aviation...

active forecast with convection chances through the evening with
fog stratus overnight as precip moves off to the east. Convection is
ongoing but should push east of the TAF sites within an hour or two.

Questions for this evening as models continue to indicate a second
line of storms developing and pushing through around 22-02z.

Confidence is low with this second line due to ongoing precip and
cloud cover preventing stronger destabilization. Will leave tempo
group to highlight timing for now as we monitor the next couple
hours. Fog should again develop tonight in the wake of the showers.

Winds will veer from southeasterly today to westerly tonight and
northwesterly on Monday. Stratus may linger well into the day
Monday.

For dtw... Storms currently in the vicinity will be pushing off to
the east early in the forecast. Attention then turns to a second
round of storms that look to target the airport after 23z. Question
remains for strength of this second round but will highlight with
tempo as we monitor trends this afternoon. Stratus may linger
through the overnight which would prevent thicker fog cover, so will
hold MVFR for now.

Dtw threshold probabilities...

* moderate for ceilings AOB 5kft this afternoon through tonight.

* high for thunderstorms 18-20z. Low between 00-03z.

Dtx watches warnings advisories
Mi... None.

Lake huron... Small craft advisory until 4 am edt Monday for lhz421-422.

Lake st clair... None.

Michigan waters of lake erie... None.

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.
