NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Chicago/Romeoville Illinois 
1000 PM CDT Sat Apr 19 2014 


Discussion... 


250 PM...forecast concerns include highs back in the 70s Sunday 
and Monday...along with possible lake cooling. Showers along with 
a chance of thunderstorms Monday afternoon/evening...additional 
showers for the end of the week. 


Despite the center of high pressure now over the eastern lakes 
and pushing into western Quebec...the gradient remains weak over 
Lake Michigan and this is aiding cooler easterly flow with temperatures 
along the Illinois Lakeshore only in the 40s. Temperatures warm quickly into 
the 60s inland. This easterly flow will slowly turn southeasterly 
as the gradient gradually tightens overnight. Lows tonight are a 
bit tricky...dewpoints will gradually creep up...perhaps into the 
lower 40s by morning. Air aloft will also be warming. Lows may end 
up occurring in the late evening or early overnight then become 
steady or slowly rise toward morning. But usual cool spots may dip 
into the lower 40s. 


Sunday will be dry and warmer as highs should easily reach the 
lower to middle 70s with some upper 70s possible across parts of 
central Illinois. However...the gradient now appears to be just weak 
enough for a lake breeze to form from downtown north to the WI/Illinois 
state line and it will likely remain right along the shore... 
making the temperature forecast difficult. Temperatures could stay in the upper 
40s/lower 50s right at the shore line...quickly warming into the 
lower 70s just a few miles inland. 


A frontal boundary will slowly sag across the northern lakes 
tonight into Sunday and then become stationary into Sunday night 
as low pressure moves across the upper Midwest and northern Great 
Lakes region Monday. Precipitation timing continues to slow and much of 
the area should remain dry through daybreak Monday with only the 
western third of the County Warning Area potentially seeing some showers Monday 
morning. Best chance of showers and perhaps a few thunderstorms 
will be along/ahead of a trailing cold Monday afternoon into 
Monday evening. With lows only falling back into the 50s Sunday 
night/Monday morning...highs on Monday will likely be able to 
reach the lower 70s...especially eastern two thirds of the County Warning Area 
and bumped temperatures up a few degrees. 


A ridge of high pressure will move across the region Tuesday and 
Tuesday night allowing for seasonal temperatures along with easterly flow 
keeping the Lakeshore areas cooler. As the high departs...a brief 
period of showers appear possible Wednesday afternoon into 
Wednesday evening as warmer air spreads across the region but this 
should be fairly short-lived with the rest of Wednesday night and 
the first part of Thursday mostly dry. Temperatures rise back to the middle/ 
upper 60s Thursday and while winds look fairly breezy...they will 
be mainly southerly...so some lake cooling along the Illinois shore will 
be possible. The best chance of showers and thunderstorms will be 
along/ahead of a cold front later Thursday afternoon into Thursday 
evening. Cms

East-southeast winds early this evening will veer to south then 
south-southwest Sunday increasing a bit in speed Sunday. There 
could be some occasional gusts 15-20kt Sunday afternoon. Otherwise weather

151 PM CDT 


Low pressure track from southern Manitoba east-northeastward to near 
the James Bay by late Sunday. This will system will produce a period 
of stiff southerly winds up around 25 knots across the lake tonight 
into Sunday. However...the strongest of these winds should remain 
over the open waters of the Lake. A cold frontal 
boundary...associated with this low...is forecast to move across the 
far northern portion of the lake Sunday night...then as a second 
area of low pressure moves over the lake Monday...the front will be 
driven across the entire lake by Monday evening. It appears that a 
period of strong northerly winds (25 to 30 kt) may set up for a 
period in the wake of this front for Monday night and 
Tuesday...before high pressure begins to build across the lake by 
midweek. 


The later portion of the upcoming week appears to remain active 
across the Great Lakes region...as weather systems remain very 
progressive. It appears that another significant area of low 
pressure will impact the upper Midwest and the Great Lakes region 
late in the week and into early next weekend. This system could 
produce thunderstorms across the lake and also additional periods of 
significant winds.
