NEAR TERM. (Today through Tonight) Issued at 344 AM EDT Tue May 11 2021

. Cool stretch of weather almost done .

High Impact Weather Potential: Freeze concerns again tonight.

Pattern Synopsis/Forecast: Split flow and a weakening block pattern remains across western NOAM, with stronger quasi-westerly flow stretching from the SW CONUS to off the east coast. Our pesky closed upper trough axis on the eastern flank of the block has/is becoming elongated and sagging down into northern Michigan along with the core of coldest air aloft (-6C/-34C H8/H5 temps respectively). Band of modest QG-forcing for ascent, thicker cloud cover and some shower activity along and north of the trough axis is also in the process of dropping down into northern Michigan.

Elongating upper trough axis and core of coldest air aloft expected to finally drop southward through the Great Lakes during the course of the day as upstream sharp ridge axis and sfc high pressure begins to build into the Midwest and eventually into the western Great Lakes through tonight.

Details: Band of thicker cloud cover and some light precip will be dropping down through the eastern U.P. early this morning and eventually down through northern Lower Michigan through today . bolstered somewhat by cold air aloft/steeper lower level lapse rates and daytime heating. Precip may be a little mixy this morning, especially across eastern Upper Michigan, before sfc temps warm rather quickly after sunrise. But sfc high pressure and drier air will be building into the region through the afternoon which should bring a diminishing trend to cloud cover and shower chances as we get later in the day.

Upper level ridging, sfc high pressure/drier air continue to build into the region in earnest tonight with clearing skies anticipated. A good radiational cooling night, except we do keep a decent pressure gradient/gradient wind going through a good part of the night. Nonetheless, temperatures will likely dip at or below freezing at many locations . and potentially the middle 20s for our usual cold locations and areas that can decouple. Another round of freeze warnings will likely be needed once again.

SHORT TERM. (Wednesday through Thursday) Issued at 344 AM EDT Tue May 11 2021

High impact weather potential: One more night of frost/freeze concerns Wednesday night.

Pattern synopsis/forecast: Troughing that's plagued the region this past weekend and through the early portion of the week is expected to have shifted across the Northeast states by Wednesday as upper- level ridging slides across the Upper Mississippi Valley into the western Great Lakes through the forecast period. Attendant high pressure will accompany this feature, largely keeping northern Michigan's sensible weather dry with moderating temperatures.

Primary forecast concerns/challenges: Wednesday night's low temperatures.

Surface high pressure gradually presses into the region late Tuesday night . becoming centered overhead during the day Wednesday. After a cold start to the day Wednesday, little in the way of sensible weather is anticipated across northern Michigan as mostly sunny skies are expected to be the rule. Moderating temperatures arrive as well with highs climbing 10 or so degrees above Tuesday's highs . ranging from the upper 50s to low 60s for most -- cooler at the lakeshores.

One more chilly night is on tap Wednesday night, although not quite as cold as the previous several given weak/subtle warm air advection underway. Expecting the coolest readings to be found across interior northern lower/eastern upper . generally ranging from the low-mid 30s. Several degrees warmer across the Great Lakes coastal collar counties. Certainly another night to take precautions to protect any sensitive vegetation, especially for inland locations.

Another tranquil day anticipated Thursday with more sun than clouds and temperatures climbing back to near-normal . perhaps even a couple of degrees above normal as highs range from the low-mid 60s for most -- again cooler near the lakes.

LONG TERM. (Thursday night through Monday) Issued at 344 AM EDT Tue May 11 2021

High impact weather potential: Minimal for now.

Upper-level ridging will continue to trek over the Great Lakes becoming centered over New England during the day Thursday as high pressure sits over the region to wrap up the work week. Mainly precipitation-free conditions continue through the end of the week before some low-end rain chances enter the picture for the weekend; however, a lack of substantial forcing will limit meaningful precip. Temperatures certainly look to remain more spring-like through the forecast period . generally ranging from the mid-upper 60s for most.

AVIATION. (For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Wednesday morning) Issued at 609 AM EDT Tue May 11 2021

Sharp upper level low is in the process of sliding down through northern Michigan dragging core of coldest air down into the region. In response, lower (MVFR) cloud cover is in the process of expanding into northern Lower Michigan early this morning, and there may be some light precip that develops across the area this morning and into the afternoon.

High pressure and drier air will build into the region later this afternoon and through tonight. This will bring a clearing trend to northern Lower Michigan this afternoon with VFR conditions returning to the terminal sites. Overall clear skies anticipated tonight.

Northwest wind gustiness expected today. Winds diminish tonight and remain on the lighter side through Wednesday.

MARINE. Issued at 344 AM EDT Tue May 11 2021

Gusty northwest winds will result in small craft advisory conditions on Whitefish Bay/Saint Marys River and parts of northern Lake Huron . today through this evening. High pressure builds into the region tonight bringing diminishing winds later tonight and for the next few days.

APX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. MI . FREEZE WARNING until 8 AM EDT this morning for MIZ016>018- 020>036-041-042-098-099. LH . SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY until midnight EDT tonight for LHZ347-348. LM . NONE. LS . SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY until midnight EDT tonight for LSZ321-322.
