Pattern Synopsis/Pattern Forecast:

All eyes directed at one deep (and deepening) circa 978mb low pressure working its way slowly north on the east side Georgian Bay early this afternoon. Aggressive deformation/trowal within attendant deep mid level troughing brought widespread light and moderate rain to much of the Northwoods last night through this morning. High pressure and drying through the vertical resulting in a steady decay of this precipitation from west to east across the region early this afternoon. Perhaps bigger story with this system is the gusty winds, with one impressive pressure gradient resulting in sustained winds often in excess of 20 mph, with gusts up into the 40s (even a few gusts in excess of 50 mph along the Lake Huron coast!).

Significant changes expected as we head through tonight as eastern lakes low pressure begins to pick up its northeast pace. Surface high pressure and increasing mid level heights will build steadily in behind this departing system, setting the stage for a decent start to the weekend.

Primary Forecast Concerns/Challenges:

Lingering rain and wind evolution.


Drying will continue to aggressively spread east this evening, ending the rain threat by early this evening. Clouds will be a bit slower to mix out, but vertical moisture profiles do support skies becoming mostly clear across at least western areas by sunrise Saturday. Northwest winds will also slowly subside, but still looking at wind advisory gusts into this evening, with the strongest winds likely near the Lake Huron coast where gusts may approach 50 mph at times. A bit chillier tonight, with lows ranging through the 30s.


Pattern Synopsis and Forecast:

Low pressure system producing the rain showers today (Friday) will continue to pull away on Saturday as heights rise and northwest flow aloft takes over. Vort max within the flow aloft, coupled with a sfc low, will move across the Great Lakes Region Saturday night. Rain showers largely expected but there could be some convective activity especially the farther south you go. By midday to afternoon Sunday, system ejects eastward and precipitation wanes. Northwest flow remains on Monday, with dry and mild conditions.

Primary Forecast Concerns:

Expect much nicer conditions on Saturday as the rain maker pulls away from the region. Winds will remain breezy, however, but waning towards the late afternoon and evening. Next upper level perturbation swings through Saturday night with the chance for showers. Latest guidance suggests a corridor of elevated instability, favoring portions of northern lower, especially the farther south you go. Thus, could see some convective precipitation Saturday night. Not expecting a ton of accumulation though, but any additional rainfall will be beneficial rains and help with fire weather concerns. Mild temperatures expected this weekend into Monday with values in the 60s.


Pattern Synopsis and Forecast:

Next storm system takes shape early to mid next week as an upper low lifts out of the Plains States then into the western Lakes. Sfc low pressure to follow suit tracking somewhere in the vicinity of northern Michigan. Still appreciable spread within ensemble guidance on exact track, which will determine exactly how much precip we get, but probabilities (good chance for >0.5") suggest another good wetting rain will be possible for the region (could even be some thunder...something to watch). Another lobe of energy will swing on down behind this initial low pressure, suggesting precipitation may linger well into the mid to late next week time period (if the current guidance has any clue). This next system, at least initially, will be mild, with temperatures in the 50s and 60s most locations through Thursday of next week. Winds will be breezy as well as the low pressure system approaches and moves through the area.

Expect gradual improvement across the taf sites later this afternoon and evening as rain ends and cigs increase. Gusty winds will continue into this evening, at times gusting to over 40 mph. Winds will subside overnight into Saturday.


Gale force northwest winds will slowly subside from west to east tonight, with gale conditions ending last on Lake Huron early Saturday morning. Trends support sub-advisory conditions returning later Saturday through the weekend.
