.a strong Thunderstorm over the waters... The areas affected include... Detroit river... Michigan waters of lake erie... At 625 pm edt, doppler radar indicated a strong Thunderstorm, capable of producing winds to up 30 knots and small hail. This Thunderstorm was located over detroit river light, moving east at 20 knots. The strong Thunderstorm will be near, detroit river light around 630 pm edt. Other locations impacted by the strong Thunderstorm include stony point, estral beach and gibraltar. Precautionary/preparedness actions... Mariners can expect gusty winds up to 30 knots, locally higher waves, and lightning strikes. Boaters should seek safe harbor immediately until this storm passes. && lat...lon 4192 8327 4195 8327 4197 8326 4200 8322 4203 8321 4204 8322 4205 8321 4204 8320 4211 8320 4210 8313 4203 8315 4197 8311 4196 8311 4190 8319

Aviation
A stable low-level profile remains in place today which will hold
vfr conditions through the course of the daylight hours with
upstream obs indicating just an increase in high clouds on the way
this morning. A strong low pressure system will track through the
great lakes tonight, bringing showers and deteriorating aviation
conditions this evening and tonight. A cold front will bring showers
in the 01z to 09z time frame and introduce MVFR CIGS that will
persist through Wednesday. Potential exists for ifr conditions
tonight coincident with frontal passage, but will leave out of tafs
until greater confidence is achieved.

For dtw... Most likely timing for showers occurs 03z to 09z with at
least MVFR expected during that time and afterward. Wind shift to
the west occurs around 08-09z.

Dtw threshold probabilities...

* high for ceilings AOB 5 kft this evening through tonight.

closed mid level circulation currently lifting east-southeast across
the northern plains on pace to take residence locally tonight and
Wednesday, setting the stage for another period of well below normal
temperatures for the latter half of the week. Emerging corridor of
modest warm air advection immediately downstream of this system will
bring a respectable warming trend today, particularly in light of
existing cold morning readings. The additive contribution of good
early day insolation potential will effectively bring afternoon
readings to around average for mid october - highs upper 50s north
to mid 60s south. Moisture advection tied to the isentropic ascent
remains rather lackluster and generally confined above 10k ft
through the daylight period. Little tangible forcing otherwise
outside of perhaps brief ascent associated with a weak impulse now
lifting across iowa. This may allow for a few widely scattered high
based showers or sprinkles late today generally north of i-69, but
overall limited precipitation potential prior to 00z.

The aforementioned closed low will undergo steady strengthening as
it lifts into the region tonight. Sharp height fall gradient on the
lead edge will drive the attendant cold front across southeast
michigan early tonight. An increase in mid level dynamics and upper
jet support coincident with the frontal arrival will translate into
an expanding coverage of showers as the boundary advances through
lower michigan. Looking at a several hour window for rainfall
centered primarily 01z-05z. Greater forcing set to emerge just
downstream across ontario ohio, effectively keeping rainfall amounts
more manageable locally less than .25" . A few rumbles of thunder
not out of the question given the dynamics and brief reduction in
stability as narrow ribbon of higher theta-e noses northward
immediately ahead of the front. Latter half of the night then
defined by post-frontal cold air advection within developing
westerly flow. Lows Wednesday morning in the 40s.

High amplitude upper troughing firmly entrenched during the
Wednesday and Thursday periods, as the governing upper circulation
only slowly exits to the east during this time. This will
effectively establish another stretch of colder conditions -
temperatures likely a solid 10 degrees below average during this
time. A secondary cold frontal passage Wednesday afternoon anchoring
the emerging deeper layer northwest flow on the backside of the
exiting upper trough low will reinforce this thermal profile. A
perturbed underlying environment featuring cold mid level cyclonic
flow in the presence of ongoing cold air advection, daytime heating
and a combination of both synoptic and lake moisture advection will
support a scattered coverage of showers, particularly during the
latter half of the day. West to northwest winds turning gusty by
afternoon - around 30 mph at times. Lingering ascent likely
perpetuates some light showers into Wednesday night. Dry and cold
northwest flow will then dictate conditions Thursday. Surface
ridging builds back in Thursday night, presenting another favorable
radiational cooling opportunity and the possibility for some frost.

Dry and gradually moderating conditions Friday, as a progressive
upper ridge lifts across the region. Deeper layer southwest flow
develops as the ridge axis settles east, establishing a more
meaningful warming trend over the weekend. Highs currently projected
to reach into the 60s both days. This pattern may yield a lower end
potential for showers at times throughout the weekend, but chances
still remain rather ill-defined at this stage. Another dynamic
system set to impact the great lakes Monday will bring a higher
likelihood of rainfall and the next push of colder air for next
week.

Marine...

winds back to the southeast and strengthen over the course of this
afternoon as a strong low pressure system develops over northern
wisconsin. Gusts over lake huron may reach the 25 to 30 kt range
this evening in advance of the system, but will weaken as the center
of the low moves over northern central lake huron late tonight. The
system pushes a cold front through overnight and introduces moderate
westerly winds for early Wednesday, gusting to about 25 kt, in
addition to periods of showers. The main impact of this system will
be felt by late Wednesday afternoon into early Thursday as strong
northwest flow wraps around the low and has potential to produce
gales to 40 kt. A gale watch remains in effect for lake huron and
saginaw bay for this potential and small craft advisories will
likely be needed for the nearshore marine zones. The northwest
gradient remains elevated through Thursday as the low slowly departs
to the east.
