Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Gaylord MI 900 PM EDT Thu Jul 29 2021

UPDATE. Issued at 900 PM EDT Thu Jul 29 2021

High pressure continues to build into the Western Great Lakes region late this evening in the wake of a cold front that passed thru our area earlier today. A weak moisture-starved secondary cold front is making its way thru Northern Lower Michigan attm . resulting only in a small area of low clouds immediately behind it. Surface winds remain gusty even with the approach of sunset . but N/NW winds should gradually diminish as we head into the overnight hours Otherwise. expect a mostly clear and cool night across our Northwoods with ongoing CAA behind the cold front. Low temps will cool mainly into the lower 50s.

NEAR TERM. (Through Tonight) Issued at 304 PM EDT Thu Jul 29 2021

. Dry and seasonal tonight .

High impact weather potential: None.

Pattern synopsis and forecast:

Upper level pattern remains remarkably persistent, with northern Michigan centered squarely between broad western ridging and northeast NOAM centered troughing. Deep northwest flow the result across the Great Lakes, helping drive last nights shower and storm producing system well to our east and south. Extensive area of Canadian originate high pressure building southeast into the region, as evident by slowly clearing skies and an increasingly dry airmass. Temperatures remain about on par for were they should be for this time of year, with readings ranging from the lower 70s to around 80.

High pressure will continue to build into our area tonight, slowly exiting off to the southeast Friday into Friday night.

Primary forecast concerns/challenges:

Nothing significant for sure tonight . with main emphasis on temperature trends.

Details:

As mentioned above, high pressure will continue to build southeast into the area tonight, bringing dry weather and mostly clear skies along with it. Pressure gradient does not entirely relax, suggesting maintenance of at least some light northerly flow. This will prevent temperatures from falling too much. Still, would expect widespread lows in the lower to middle 50s, with some of our typical colder locations likely making a run into the upper 40s.

SHORT TERM. (Friday through Sunday) Issued at 304 PM EDT Thu Jul 29 2021

. More rain and storm potential Saturday .

High impact weather potential: Some storms possible Saturday

Pattern/Synopsis: The Great Lakes region remains in steady northwest flow to end the work week, with a 80-100 knot jet crossing overhead between western ridging and New England troughing. Troughing deepens across the Great Lakes heading through the weekend with shortwave energy sinking down through Ontario. At the surface high pressure slides through the upper Great Lakes through Friday, followed by a cold frontal passage late Saturday. This will lead to showers and storm chances that linger Saturday into very early Sunday.

Forecast/Details: Friday will be quiet and dry with light northerly winds and a few late morning/afternoon cumulus. Highs should top out a couple degrees either side of 70 for many areas. Synoptic moisture increases Friday night ahead of a system trekking through northern Ontario. Another weak wave should induce a secondary surface circulation which will cross Eastern Upper Saturday afternoon. We get into a pseudo warm sector through the day, and this combined with decent instability and moisture plus around 35 kts of bulk shear orientated perpendicular to the cold front should allow for some storms to pop Saturday afternoon. Some of these could become strong so it bears watching this potential the next couple days. Enough moisture and instability linger into the night and early Sunday to support showers. This will followed by increasing dry and clearing conditions later Sunday as high pressure moves into the upper Great Lakes. Highs through the weekend look to remain in the low to mid 70's.

LONG TERM. (Sunday night through Thursday) Issued at 304 PM EDT Thu Jul 29 2021

High impact weather potential: Minimal

Additional waves of energy rotate through broadscale troughing early next week, bringing more shower chances to the Great Lakes. The best chances look to be on Tuesday with another front swinging through the area. Guidance continues to hint at an upper level low becoming cut off across either the Lakes or the Ohio Valley in the mid week time frame. But run-to-run and intermodel consistency with this leaves a lot to be desired with a lot of uncertainty. As of now only have very low chances of precipitation. Highs should be increasing through the 70's to near 80 by the end of the week.

AVIATION. (For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Friday evening) Issued at 700 PM EDT Thu Jul 29 2021

High pressure will continue to build into the Western Great Lakes region tonight thru Friday in the wake of a cold front that passed thru the region earlier today. VFR conditions will prevail at all Northern Lower Michigan TAF sites for the next 24 hours. Winds will remain from the north at 10 to 20 kts.

MARINE. Issued at 304 PM EDT Thu Jul 29 2021

Gusty north to northwest winds will gradually subside tonight as high pressure further builds into the region. Northwest winds, at times gusty, continue through Friday. Current trends support winds and waves remaining just below advisory levels on Friday. Winds become southwest and remain a bit gusty Friday night and Saturday ahead of the next approaching cold front. This front will bring our next chance for more showers and a few thunderstorms, especially late Friday night into Saturday.
