Aviation
Late day cumulus strato-cu in the 6-7kft layer will persist early in
the forecast, but fade by mid evening. Diurnal CIGS look likely
again on Friday within cyclonic northerly flow associated with upper
trough passing from the central to eastern great lakes. Clearing at
the end of the forecast should be quick as this trough axis passes
east and surface high pressure settles into the region. Winds will
remain north northeast with speeds to about 10 knots in best mixing
again by midday Friday.

Dtw threshold probabilities
* medium for cigs AOB 5fkt for a period Friday afternoon.

discussion...

a much cooler and drier post frontal airmass is settling into the
central great lakes today. The 60s dewpoints across the southeast
michigan yesterday have been pushed south by the canadian high
pressure leaving upper 40s and 50s dewpoints. This cooler airmass is
also characterized by a drop in 850 mb temperatures to the 7 to 10 c
range. This is resulting in high temperatures largely in the low to
mid 70 range for today with a fair amount of sunshine. The clouds
associated with the frontal boundary to the south have mostly pushed
east of michigan making way for diurnal cumulus field now the state.

Mostly dry northerly flow will keep conditions quiet through the
remainder of today. Loss of daytime heating will bring clearing
skies into tonight resulting in good radiational cooling. This will
bring overnight low temperatures down into the 50s with upper 40s
achievable across the thumb.

Southeast michigan will reside on the southern side of the surface
high as an upper trough axis departs to the east ushering in
shortwave energy from the north. With cooler air moving over the
relatively warmer lakes, over-lake instability will bring a low end
chance for light showers mainly affecting the thumb region during
the day tomorrow as the shortwave moves through. The thermal trough
remains over the great lakes region tomorrow and Saturday keeping
high temperatures on the cool side of normal. Upper 60s to low 70s
across parts of the thumb and mostly 70s for the remaining inland
areas with overnight lows mostly in the 50s. Shortwave ridging with
the surface high centered across the north central great lakes and
southern ontario will keep the mostly dry conditions to start to the
weekend.

Western periphery of the surface high pressure system and a
weakening omega blocking pattern in the mid-levels will bring
continued dry conditions to end the weekend. Return flow from the
departing high pressure will continue to reinforce easterly flow
through Sunday morning, veering southeast throughout the day which
will increase temperatures to near-normal values with highs in the
upper-70s to lower-80s.

Upper-level trough will then amplify across the northern plains as
high pressure settles over the new england area on Monday which will
increase the pressure gradient across the midwest into the great
lakes. Strengthening LLJ warm front amplification over the ohio
valley will bring a warm-up and increase in humidity to SE mi Monday
into Wednesday with highs in the 80s and dewpoints increasing from
the 50s into the 60s and potentially lower 70s across the metro
area. Increase in moisture will also bring rain and thunderstorm
chances early next week, especially late Monday into Tuesday, as
moisture transport is maximized across SE mi during this time. A
secondary chance for rain and thunderstorms will again be possible
late Tuesday into Wednesday as a stacked low slowly travels east
from manitoba across ontario, dragging a cold front behind it which
will sweep across michigan. Last, mechanical mixing with stronger
low level winds and the increasing pressure gradient will bring
gusty conditions Monday and Tuesday, and again Thursday (tied to
caa).

Marine...

canadian high pressure will expand into the northern great lakes
through the end of the week before departing to eastern canada over
the weekend. This system will influence the region right through the
end of the weekend. Winds and waves will gradually decrease this
evening 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 will promote enough over lake instability to support a chance
for waterspouts through Friday.

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.
