Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Detroit/Pontiac MI 712 PM EDT Sun Jun 23 2024


- A cooler and less humid air mass gradually builds into Lower Michigan today and tonight.

- High temperatures in the upper 70s to lower 80s Monday are right around normal for mid to late June.

- Showers and thunderstorms become active again during the mid week period.


Broken coverage of VFR cloud maintained within the back end of daytime heating will linger through the evening. Conditions remain favorble for some pockets of light showers during this time. Gusty northwest wind will ease with loss of diurnal support, while cloud cover gradually decreases coverage. High pressure centered over the region will then bring a stretch of dry and stable conditions overnight and Monday. This will simply translate into a limited coverage of high based diurnal cu Monday. Modest winds from the northwest through the day, shifting to the south in the wake of the high toward evening.

For DTW/D21 Convection...No convection is expected during the forecast period.


* Low for ceilings aob 5kft this evening.

Cold front moves off to the southeast today bringing relatively drier air to the CWA and helping drop dew points from last week's muggy 70 degrees. ThetaE values are set to drop another 10-15 degrees overnight, and in combination with some overnight clearing, will allow temperatures to drop into the low 60s/upper 50s tonight for the first time in a week. Isolated showers spilling off the cold conveyor belt of the departing low pressure system are possible through the evening tonight, mainly in the Thumb and over Lake Huron. Showers are expected to be weak and will produce less than a tenth of an inch.

By sunrise Monday showers will be over with and skies will be mostly clear. Ridging in full effect with a broad high pressure system will keep winds calm. Seasonal temperatures of upper 70s to 80 degrees could push slightly higher into the low 80s. Ridge axis passes overhead Monday afternoon and hands over control to an upper level low over Canada that will bring the next disturbance to the region.

Divergence aloft will support the development of the next low pressure system and allow it to bring showers and storms to the Great Lakes on Tuesday. Warm and moist air will advect in and push dew points into the upper 60s/low 70s. Temperatures are set to approach 90 Tuesday afternoon, although cloud cover could limit the heating potential. However, the heat and moisture will help destabilize the atmosphere and produce an environment capable of producing strong storms. CAPE values ranging between 2000-3000 J/kg are set to move overhead, although hi-res models will have a better idea when they come into the time range. There has also been some signal to show that storms may split the CWA, opting to stay both north along the area of greater divergence aloft and south in the higher CAPE environment. In terms of rainfall, ensemble guidance gives a 50th percentile value between 0.25" and 0.5" of QPF for this system, but higher amounts are easily possible. The DTX CWA is under a Marginal Risk for severe weather for this system, with parts of GRR and IWX nearby under a Slight Risk. The cold front sticks around for a bit and brings chances for rain through Wednesday before moving across the area Wednesday evening.

Behind the front, weak ridge moves in an promotes high pressure. Dry air will be in place, keeping clear skies and dew points in the 50s.
Seasonal to below normal temperatures for Thursday and Friday with ensemble means giving slightly below climatological normal high temperatures. Low cloud cover leading to full insolation may allow for temperatures to push closer to normal and touch 80 in places.
Trough off to the west helps develop a low pressure system set to track from MT/ND into southern Canada. That system will bring the next chances for showers and storms via warm and cold fronts moving across the Great Lakes over the weekend.


Area of low pressure now over Ontario, heading into Quebec, pulled a cold front across the region this morning. A secondary cold front is rotating south down through Lake Huron. This will keep elevated northerly flow persisting through the rest of the day before high pressure building in from the west can settle the wind and waves back down. High pressure will center over the region on Monday bringing improved conditions but the next frontal passage comes Tuesday bringing the next chance of increased southwesterly flow and thunderstorms.

Lake Huron...Small Craft Advisory until 10 PM EDT this evening for LHZ421-422- 441>443.

Lake St Clair...Small Craft Advisory until 10 PM EDT this evening for LCZ460.

Michigan waters of Lake Erie...Small Craft Advisory until 10 PM EDT this evening for LEZ444.
