LATEST UPDATE . Synopsis/Discussion/Marine

SYNOPSIS. Issued at 235 PM EST Sun Mar 7 2021

- Moderating temps, low RHs and Gusty winds next few days

- Several rounds of rain possible middle to end of the week period

DISCUSSION. (This evening through next Sunday) Issued at 235 PM EST Sun Mar 7 2021

- Moderating temps, low RHs and Gusty winds next few days

Strong warm air advection develops later tonight and more so on Monday as a low level jet moves in. Southwesterly gusts are likely to reach 30 mph as the mixing height increases during the day. Up north where there is still some snowpack . high temperatures are likely to reach the low 50s while further south some near 60 degree readings look possible given the 925 mb temps shown to rise into the 5 to 8 deg C range. It will mostly be dry air advection on Monday so very low RH values look likely to occur. The NAM is showing low clouds moving in Monday night into Tuesday . which could impact the temperatures somewhat. Other models are not being as aggressive as the NAM on this scenario.

Strong warm air advection resume Tuesday into Wednesday. The temp at 925 mb climbs several degrees each day with most locations expected to see High temps in the 60s by Wednesday. There is some uncertainty how deep we will mix Tuesday night into Wednesday. This low level jet will be stronger but due to increasing cloud cover . the mixing depth is shown to be lower. As a result there will likely be less wind on Wednesday as compared to Monday assuming less mixing.

- Several rounds of rain possible middle to end of the week period

Gulf moisture steadily streams in Tuesday into Wednesday with PWAT values forecasted to top an inch starting Wednesday. This is when a low level jet will be lifting through the region. Showers are looking increasingly likely through the day on Wednesday. A slow moving frontal zone moves in from the west Wednesday into Thursday and some models stalling it out for 24 hrs . not pushing the front through til Friday. The upper level diffluence increases Thursday as the trough pivots in from the west. That will likely help to keep the rain going or generate another round mainly for southern parts of the CWA. Some weakness in the stability is shown as well . so there may be a thunder risk as well.

AVIATION. (For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Monday afternoon) Issued at 1220 PM EST Sun Mar 7 2021

The relatively dry airmass in place will act to keep any cloud or fog conditions at VFR. A surge of stronger winds will arrive tonight . mainly just off the ground. As a result an increased risk for LLWS exists. For Monday the surface winds increase steadily in the morning and become rather gusty by noon. Values over 25 knots look possible from the southwest.

MARINE. Issued at 235 PM EST Sun Mar 7 2021

As one low level jet moves in tonight into Monday . the winds will be on the increase over the nearshore waters. South to southwesterly gusts are likely to top 25 knots and build the waves up to at least 4 feet. This will support the current small craft advisory that we have out.

Next later Tuesday night into Wednesday another low level jet surges in. Gusts are likely to top 30 knots and we may make a run at Gale conditions. One concern is how deep the mixing will be given the seasonably stable conditions over the lake. No watch at this time but it will be a consideration going forward.
