Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Gaylord MI 1038 PM EDT Tue Jul 7 2020

UPDATE. Issued at 945 PM EDT Tue Jul 7 2020

Scattered to broken high level clouds spreading across a good portion of northern lower Michigan Michigan this evening . anvil remnants from a steadily decaying convective complex sliding southeast into southern Lake Michigan. Expect these clouds to gradually thin, leaving behind partly to mostly clear skies during the overnight. Plenty of lingering low level moisture, as evident by widespread dewpoints in the 60s to near 70 degrees. Overnight lows forecast to drop a smidge below these readings, supporting the development of some patchy fog during the early morning hours.

NEAR TERM. (Through Wednesday) Issued at 403 PM EDT Tue Jul 7 2020

. A few showers/storms into this evening .

High Impact Weather Potential: Minimal. A few storms with gusty winds into this evening. A few thunderstorms possible again Wednesday afternoon.

Pattern Synopsis/Forecast: A more or less flattened/zonal flow pattern is in place from the northern Plains across the northern northern lakes region with some hint of subtle short-wave trough sliding eastward through the far western Great Lakes. Surface low pressure remains well north with a diffuse low level boundary that arcs down somewhere into northern Lower Michigan. Warm and somewhat moist conditions once again across northern Lower Michigan has lead to a decent build-up of afternoon Cu as well as spotty pop-up showers (no thunder yet) generally south of M-72/ east of I-75 in northern Lower and along a narrow convergence axis in eastern Upper Michigan near Lake Huron.

Subtle short-wave trough will pass through the northern lakes region this evening with little fanfare, followed by surface high pressure and short-wave ridging regaining ground across the region overnight into Wednesday.

Primary Forecast Concerns: Minimal. Afternoon pop-up shower/ thunderstorm chances.

Ongoing spotty showers and possibly some thunder will continue to percolate across the region through early evening before ending. Haven't seen any lightning strikes/flashes as of yet on lightning detection network plots. But can't rule it out over the next few hours given 500-1000 J/Kg MLCAPE values depicted across north central and northeast Lower Michigan on SPC mesoanalysis page. Low severe storm threat however, given a weaker flow regime. Quiet and mild conditions through the balance of the night although there will be some cloud cover drifting through later on . the remnants of upstream convection developing across central/ southern Wisconsin. Some patchy fog is possible as well.

Wednesday will be another warm and somewhat humid day again, along with some low end chances for showers/thunderstorms during the afternoon again. With weaker low level flow dominated by lake breezes pressing inland from either coast, any pop-up showers/thunder should be more contained across interior parts of the forecast area and particularly along/south of M-72 where better instability will be had. Severe storm threat will be low.

SHORT TERM. (Wednesday night through Friday) Issued at 403 PM EDT Tue Jul 7 2020

. Very Warm and Muggy Weather Persists .

High Impact Weather Potential . Low. Although will need to keep an eye on stronger thunderstorm potential for Friday.

Pattern Synopsis/Forecast . Light southerly low-level flow and persistent upper-level ridging support continued very warm and muggy conditions into Thursday, along with spotty and mainly diurnally driven convection. However, by Thursday night into Friday, the upper- level wave currently pushing across the Pacific Northwest will push a cold front into the area.. The arrival of this wave/surface front should produce more organized showers/storms, especially on Friday. The wave will be shearing out as it tracks east-northeast, and will not be as strong by the time it arrives near the area. However, considering the air mass in place and current timing of the front, we'll need to keep an eye on the threat for stronger storms Friday.

LONG TERM. (Friday night through Tuesday) Issued at 403 PM EDT Tue Jul 7 2020

High Impact Weather Potential . Low.

Cooler and less humid condtions return for this weekend in the wake of the cold front, but temperature readings are expected to remain above normal with highs mainly in the lower 80s. Upper-level ridging starts building back to begin the new work week, signaling a return to more very warm/humid conditions.

AVIATION. (For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Wednesday evening) Issued at 1034 PM EDT Tue Jul 7 2020

Convective blowoff cirrus gradually thinning cross the taf sites. Lingering low level moisture will likely bring MVFR to even IFR mist and fog early this morning at KPLN and KAPN . perhaps impacting KMBL as well. Mist/fog will lift quickly after sunrise, with a developing relatively high based cumulus field expected during the afternoon. At this time it appears any showers that may develop from this cu field will stay across interior areas and away from the taf locations. Light winds, with local lake breeze development this afternoon.

MARINE. Issued at 403 PM EDT Tue Jul 7 2020

Light winds/waves anticipated through at least Wednesday with no marine headlines. A bit stronger winds may develop on Thursday. But right now, winds/waves are expected to remain below headline criteria.

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.
