Discussion
The center of the broad surface high moving across lake superior and
southern ontario will continue to influence the region today while
an upper trough axis swings into the eastern great lakes by tonight.

A convergence zone that set up earlier in the day brought isolated
to scattered showers across the thumb. These were supported by
instability over the lakes as north to northwesterly flow brought
reinforced cooler air over the warmer waters. Slight chance for
scattered shower activity has mostly come to an end off lake huron.

Isolated shower development will remain possible for the next hour
or so across the thumb to the i-69 corridor as the hybrid lake breeze
releases inland. The loss of daytime heating will allow any shower
potential to diminish by the evening. The remainder of southeast
michigan will remain dry with a general cloud clearing trend into
tonight as the upper trough axis moves east. Mostly clear skies will
bring another cool night with overnight low temperatures in the upper
40s to low 50s for much of southeast michigan.

Upper ridging and broad surface high will transverse the great lakes
region leading to ideal late summer weather conditions through the
weekend. High temperatures to start the weekend will be slightly
below normal as thermal trough is maintained under cooler north and
easterly flow. Temperatures at 850 mb will be in the 6-8 degree c
range tomorrow resulting in highs in the low to mid 70s. Humidity
will also be low with dewpoints in the 50s. The departing high
pressure on Sunday will bring some subtle airmass modification with
south to southeasterly flow pushing some warmer temperatures into
lower michigan. High temperatures on Sunday rebound to the mid upper
70s to around 80 degrees.

Strengthening LLJ and warm front amplification ahead of an
approaching upper-level trough will increase heat and especially
humidity across SE mi Monday into Tuesday as dew points rise from
the 50s into the low to mid 60s (Monday) and upper-60s to lower-70s
(Tuesday). Will only see a slight uptick in temperatures as they
will be modulated by extensive cloud cover and rain
showers thunderstorms. Best moisture transport will set up across
the great lakes and will allow pw values of 1.50 - 1.75 inches to
build in for both Monday and Tuesday. Some models advertising pw up
to 2.00 inches, but will stay conservative as it lines up more with
ensemble means. On and off showers and thunderstorms are expected to
develop along the warm front Monday with additional help from
embedded shortwaves. Last, breezy conditions will be possible Monday
as tightening pressure gradient sets up across SE mi.

Stacked low pressure system drifting eastward from manitoba into
ontario will drag a cold front across michigan late in the day on
Tuesday (need additional model runs to pinpoint timing) which will
bring the last of the rain and thunderstorms associated with the
humid airmass, before cooler and dry canadian air filters in behind
the front. Post-frontal airmass will bring relief from the humidity
and temperatures as highs in the 70s hold, with gusty conditions
possible as CAA increases mechanical mixing. Long range models are
advertising a second cold front projected to move across michigan
sometime between Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, which would
be the next chance to see precipitation late next week.

Marine
Stable high pressure will broaden further this weekend over the
great lakes bringing about cooler and drier air. Winds are expected
to veer a bit further toward the NE to around 15 knots before
backing northerly and dropping below 10 knots overnight. Primary
marine concern over the next few hours is the dwindling threat for
waterspouts given the warm surface temperatures of lake huron which
have aided in the generation of enhanced instability. Lake effect
showers capable of producing waterspouts have greatly diminished in
coverage and will trend toward clearer conditions by 21z for
southern lake huron. NE winds will continue until Sunday after which
a SE flow pattern sets up through Monday, coinciding with an uptick
in speeds in the 15-20 knot range Monday afternoon. Dry conditions
will prevail through the same period as high pressure remains in
control.

areas of isolated showers should remain east of the terminals for
the reminder of today as stable high pressure manifests over the
great lakes for the weekend. Mainly sct with brief periods bkn
cumulus coverage has been observed via goes-16 imagery as moisture
advection over the warm waters of lake huron helps to increase the
vapor content of otherwise drier lower-level air. Clouds will
gradually thin-out this evening with the loss of daytime heating.

Winds are expected to veer a bit further toward the NE before
backing northerly and diminishing overnight. So far, there have only
been intermittent weak gusts noted via asos. A dry,VFR forecast
will be maintained through the entirety of the TAF period as this
current pattern holds with more diurnal cumulus expected on
Saturday.

Dtw threshold probabilities...

* low for ceilings at or below 5000 ft through this afternoon
and again on Saturday from 21-00z.

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.
