Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Detroit/Pontiac MI 1021 AM EST Fri Jan 24 2020

UPDATE.

Isentropic upglide and copious Gulf moisture will allow drizzle/light rain showers to persist for the remainder of the morning and afternoon. Not much room for rising temperatures with easterly flow in place, with highs capping in the mid to upper-30s -- but warm enough to ensure all rain today. Closed low system, presently over Missouri/Illinois, will continue to meander northeast into lower Michigan by 06Z, introducing the chance to see areas of fog as the occluded front sets up over the state. Sufficient evidence for fog also observed over IL/MO, increasing confidence for fog chances tonight. Otherwise, no major updates to the forecast package.


PREV DISCUSSION. Issued at 623 AM EST Fri Jan 24 2020

AVIATION .

A deep plume of low level moisture will accompany a low pressure system into the region this taf period. Brief window this morning for VFR conditions, before a steady reduction in ceiling heights emerges late morning through the afternoon as rainfall increase in coverage. The likelihood for LIFR restrictions will increase late afternoon or evening as the low advances in lower Michigan. Winds through the daylight period holding from the east around 10 knots. Maintenance of very low stratus with some component of restricted visibility in rain or drizzle will persist into tonight.

For DTW . Precipitation is expected to fall in the form of rain today and tonight.

DTW THRESHOLD PROBABILITIES .

* Medium for ceilings aob 5kft this morning, then high this afternoon through tonight.

* High in ptype as rain today and tonight.

PREV DISCUSSION . Issued at 312 AM EST Fri Jan 24 2020

DISCUSSION .

Closed low over southern Missouri will modulate Southeast Michigan weather through the weekend. Widespread rain this morning is occasionally mixing with snow where rates are sufficiently high owing to low surface dewpoints. Snow has been transient, however, and temperatures continue to steadily rise. Initial moisture surge will lift through the area by around sunrise with the secondary surge following quickly on its heels. Daylight hours today charactertized by ongoing isentropic ascent within increasingly divergent flow aloft which will support periods of rain all day. Upper low will then meander toward Lower Michigan tonight through Saturday, much of this period on the drier side for most areas given the degree of dry air that has already wrapped into the core of the circulation. Snow potential emerges Saturday night through Sunday as cold cyclonic flow persists, any signal for sufficiently organized forcing to support accumulation remaining nebulous for now. Will toe the line with chc type pops and snow shower mention through the latter half of the weekend. High temps remain in the 30s, the warmer side of normal, throughout this period. Active subtropical jet once again emerges next week which will support relatively high floor on temps and introduces higher-than-normal uncertaninty into the medium range.

MARINE .

Southeasterly winds will rotate to easterly during the day today before slowly backing to northwesterly Saturday into Sunday as the low center crosses the lower peninsula. This system will bring a mix of rain and snow lasting through the day Sunday. The low is not particularly strong with a weaker pressure gradient reducing the wind potential. However, there is a small craft advisory along the Thumb Friday night as southeast flow creates higher wave action in the nearshore zone.

HYDROLOGY .

Forecast rain amounts around one half inch into existing snowpack, itself containing about one half inch liquid equiv, will cause ponding water in flood prone areas and some rises toward bankfull of area rivers and streams. However, the light rain amounts and slow release of frozen water source negate flooding potential.

DTX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. MI . Lakeshore Flood Advisory from 4 PM this afternoon to 4 AM EST Saturday for MIZ049-055-063.

Lake Huron . Small Craft Advisory from 4 PM this afternoon to 4 AM EST Saturday for LHZ421-441>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.
