A cooler and drier environment taking residence over the region will
provide a stretch of quiet conditions for aviation interests this
taf period. Period of late day diurnal cumulus may briefly become
broken in coverage, before quickly fading withe loss of heating this
evening. Another round of high basedVFR diurnal CU likely on
Friday. Modest northerly winds late today, turning northeasterly

discussion...

last evening's cold front has cleared SE michigan and will remain
semi-stationary south of the ohio border today. The air mass behind
the front is much cooler and drier than what has been in place
recently. With surface dew point depressions of 5 to 13 degrees and
mid to high clouds moving overhead, the fog low stratus potential is
minimal this morning. 850 mb temps are progged to fall to the 8 to
10 c range by this afternoon, resulting in a cooler day in the 70s. A
few ripples of upper energy will travel along the ohio valley
frontal zone this morning, but should only result in an isolated
coverage of showers for monroe and lenawee counties. Will keep slight
chance pop in place to account for this. Skies clear later this
morning with gentle isentropic descent introducing a continued flow
of dry air into the midlevels. Some diurnal cumulus may develop
during peak heating but will be of little impact.

Clear skies and dry low-levels will allow for good cooling potential
tonight; lows in the 50s with a shot at some readings in the upper
40s in the thumb. High pressure expands over the northern great
lakes from the late week into the weekend and keeps conditions cool
and quiet. Temperatures will be more reminiscent of mid september
with highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s both Friday and Saturday.

A shortwave trough will rotate around the canadian upper low late
Friday morning and may tap into enough over-lake instability to
produce some showers over the thumb.

A warming trend then begins on Sunday as the thermal trough axis
moves off to the east and southerly flow starts to advect warmer air
back north. Shortwave ridging will remain overhead on Sunday as we're
positioned between two troughs which will lead to continued quiet
weather. Temperatures will rebound back to near-normal for late
august during the early week. The next chance for showers and storms
comes late Monday into Tuesday as an upper trough digs through the
upper midwest and pushes a cold front through. A negatively-tilting
trough and 80kt jet streak moving overhead hint at the potential for
some strong storms, but still plenty of time to resolve many moving
parts in the forecast. Cool air will move back in for the late part
of next week.

Marine...

canadian high pressure will expand into the northern great lakes
over the next couple days before departing to eastern canada over
the weekend. This system will influence the region right through the
end of the weekend. There is an ongoing push of seasonally cool air
across the lakes as this high builds in. This is currently
supporting gusty northerly winds across southern lake huron. The
winds and waves will gradually decrease during the course of the day
and into tonight as the gradient slowly relaxes. Light to modest
northerly winds will however persist across the the lakes through
the day Friday. Persistent cold air advection across the lakes today
into Friday will promote enough over lake instability to support a
chance for waterspouts.

Dtx watches warnings advisories
Mi... None.

Lake huron... Small craft advisory until noon edt today for lhz441>443.

Lake st clair... None.

Michigan waters of lake erie... None.

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.
