Aviation
High pressure centered over northern michigan will produceVFR
conditions through the TAF period. The main concern is some lowVFR
stratus advecting off lake huron. Early morning observations show
3500-5000ft CIGS with this stratus. Diurnal mixing will raise cloud
bases to 5-6kft this afternoon with mainly a scattered coverage.

Will watch for any overachieving plumes working toward the sites
which may require a brief bkn period. Best chance of this would be
at mbs with the channeling down the bay.

Dtw threshold probabilities
* none.

discussion...

a broad region of surface high pressure is centered from quebec into
the central great lakes supplying SE michigan with nearly perfect
late summer weather for the weekend. Temperatures remain on the cool
side of normal with low humidity as exhibited by morning readings in
the upper 40s from the typically sheltered locations around the
region. A steady northeast breeze then maintains the cool and dry
air mass as the center of high pressure remains to our north. The
combination of low level thermal troughing and onshore wind limits
high temperatures to the upper 60s across the thumb while daytime
heating helps lift inland readings mostly into the lower and mid
70s. Early morning high based stratocu from over the warm water of
lake huron supports hi-res models that suggest a generous scattered
coverage of fair weather cumulus over land areas with daytime
surface heating through the afternoon and then dissipating during
the evening. This leads to another clear and cool night although
with a few less readings in the upper 40s by sunrise Sunday.

The center of cooler and less humid air shifts eastward Sunday as
high pressure migrates toward the new england states. The system
still maintains mostly sunny sky across SE michigan with light se
wind both helping high temperatures modify to around 80 Sunday
afternoon. Sunday night then starts a transition toward influence of
upstream low pressure systems the first of which being the current
central rockies wave trough as it moves into the plains and midwest.

This upper level feature interacts with the moisture laden surface
front stalled near the gulf coast. At the same time, a powerful
pacific upper jet produces strong cyclogenesis over central canada
with the result of both contributing to strong moisture transport
back into the central great lakes during Monday and Monday night.

Model soundings continue to advertise pw rising to around 1.8 inches
as 700 mb dewpoint is lifted to around 5c in a strong surge of gulf
moisture capable of scattered to numerous showers in lower michigan
Monday night into early Tuesday. Nocturnal elevated instability is
modest but still supportive of ordinary thunderstorm potential. The
strong cold front associated with the central canadian low pressure
system is timed to move through lower michigan Tuesday afternoon but
with plenty of question marks still there regarding instability. The
front itself appears strong enough to force stronger convection even
if recovery of instability is slow after early day rain and clouds.

The front is then projected to clear eastward by Tuesday night
leaving cooler and less humid air in place for mid week.

Marine...

fairly quiet conditions across the waters as high pressure remains
over the northern great lakes to start the weekend. This high will
slowly drift eastward through quebec tonight reaching the canadian
maritime Sunday. This will cause winds to veer from northeasterly
today to southeasterly Sunday all while staying primarily below 15
knots. Southeast flow will continue into Monday as the next trough
approaches from the west but speeds will be on the rise as the
pressure gradient tightens. Expect winds of 15 to 20 knots with
gusts of 25 to 30 knots possible Monday with increasing chances of
showers and thunderstorms Monday night and Tuesday.

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.
