Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Detroit/Pontiac MI 1139 PM EDT Fri Sep 22 2023


Sfc dewpoints around FNT and mbS have remained elevated, around 60 degrees since the brief round of late afternoon convection. With sfc wind speeds light, IFR conditions in fog will be mentioned at both mbS and FNT. Sfc dewpoints are a little lower at the Detroit terminals. Given this and with a slightly stronger easterly gradient atop the shallow nocturnal stable layer, vsby reductions will remain in the MVFR category at the Detroit terminals. With a little better push of subsidence and drying Saturday afternoon, the daytime cu flare up is not expected to be as great as today, with skies likely remaining clear or with just few cu.


* None.

Issued at 347 PM EDT Fri Sep 22 2023


Weather will be pretty quiet across the region through the weekend as we remain trapped under an upper level ridge with a surface ridge centered over Ontario/Quebec with the Great Lakes on the southern periphery keeping an easterly feed of air into the region. We're at the tail end of a split flow pattern with a strong southern stream across the southern states and the northern stream well to our north across Canada. This kind of gets washed out by an upper low drifting across the Plains, but we remain ridged locally as the pattern is stalled by the next tropical system lifting up the east coast. So the ridge gets pinched between these systems, keeping the current airmass largely locked into place and holding the upper low over the Midwest and Northern Plains through the weekend.

There is a chance of some patchy fog around once again late tonight into morning as a strong low level inversion sets up. Dewpoints are forecast to be lower than this morning, but a consistent easterly feed of air off the lakes could be enough to saturate the boundary layer creating a few hours of fog. Whatever develops won't last long past sunrise as daytime mixing will tap into dry air aloft scouring it out.

Later in the weekend we'll have a backdoor cold front drop through the region forced by a strengthening 1035mb surface high building south over Hudson Bay. This doesn't look to amount to much in the way of precipitation, but will bring some gustier winds out of the northeast vs the persistent lighter easterly winds ahead of it. The resultant strengthen easterly wind fields will also bring temps down a bit from the upper 70s, to upper 60s to start the new week.

Next chance of precipitation will be Monday night and Tuesday as the stalled upper low to the west drifts a bit eastward and a trough slings up into lower MI. The upper low will follow through mid week keeping temps in the 60s with a fair amount of cloud cover and entry level rain chances.


High pressure will dominate the region heading into the weekend.
First a high over northern New England will hold over the region producing continued light winds and dry conditions. A second large high pressure center building over northern Ontario will push a backdoor cold front through the region result in increasing northeast flow for the second half of the weekend. Wind gusts of 20 to 25 knots and waves building to near 4 feet will be possible.

Lake Huron...None.
Lake St Clair...None.
Michigan waters of Lake Erie...None.
