LATEST UPDATE . Synopsis/Discussion/Marine

SYNOPSIS. Issued at 225 PM EST Sun Dec 8 2019

- light rain tonight and Monday

- rain changes to snow Monday night

- lake effect snow showers Tuesday

DISCUSSION. (This evening through next Sunday) Issued at 225 PM EST Sun Dec 8 2019

No big storms this week but there could be some travel impacts Tuesday morning as cold air rushes in Monday night causing residual moisture to freeze and adding a coasting of snow on top of it. The rain transitions to snow and temperatures drop below freezing by the morning commute, so an advisory may be needed.

Lake effect snow showers continue through Wednesday evening but are limited by inversion height at or below 5 kft during that time, so amounts are expected to be light, generally a couple inches or less across the western third of the forecast area. Skies should at least partially clear on Wednesday night allowing temperatures to drop to the 5 to 15 degree range for Thursday morning.

A weak clipper could bring some light snow across the northern zones later Thursday, then we will have to watch a southern stream low moving north at the end of the week that could eventually spread some rain or snow Friday and Saturday.

AVIATION. (For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Monday afternoon) Issued at 1241 PM EST Sun Dec 8 2019

Areas of MVFR will persist across southern and central Lower Michigan this afternoon but some clearing of the lower clouds is expected by this evening before they return later tonight. IFR is expected to prevail after midnight into Monday morning. Southwest winds will gust to over 20 knots at times through this afternoon.

MARINE. Issued at 225 PM EST Sun Dec 8 2019

Gale Warning was replaced with a SCA for the marine zones north of Holland. Winds and waves will continue to diminish this afternoon and evening.

GRR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. MI . None. LM . Small Craft Advisory until 7 PM EST this evening for LMZ844>849.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
