Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Marquette Michigan 
348 am EDT Sat Sep 20 2014 


Short term...(this evening through saturday) 
issued at 359 PM EDT Friday Sep 19 2014 


Main concerns during this time period is the gusty wind this 
afternoon along with shower and thunderstorm potential tonight and 
Saturday. 


This afternoon...the main issue this afternoon is the continued 
strong wind gusts across the region. This is due to a very tight 
pressure gradient between strong high pressure departing over the 
northeast and strengthening low pressure pushing from Manitoba into 
Ontario. Modeled 850mb winds are prognosticated to be around 40 to 45 knots 
across the area. This is also supported by the MQT VAD wind profiles. 
While we may not actually able to mix up to 850mb...it does look like 
we could mix to near 900mb which would easily give wind gusts around 
30 to 35 miles per hour with a few gusts close to 40 miles per hour...especially over the 
central and eastern u.P. As the gradient shifts eastward by late 
afternoon expect winds to diminish over the western half of the Upper 
Peninsula...however...the east may see stronger gusts through the 
early evening hours. As far as precipitation GOES...models continue 
to slow the precipitation movement into the Upper Peninsula. A warm 
front will continue to lift north of the u.P. Late this 
afternoon...allowing showers and a few thunderstorms to develop. This 
will remain mainly over the far western u.P. Where the better 
isentropic ascent and increased moisture remains. Additionally...the 
better system forcing will remain north and west of the u.P. As shown 
by analyzing deep layer qdiv along with deep layer relative humidity. 




Tonight through Saturday...a cold front will approach the upper 
Great Lakes region tonight as the surface low continues across 
Ontario. The better forcing through tonight will remain over mainly 
the north half of the Upper Peninsula...closer to the low pressure 
center. Have generally placed the best probability of precipitation over Lake 
Superior...however...an increased chance of showers and a few 
thunderstorms will be possible as the cold front pushes through the 
region as shown by analyzing 850mb Theta-E along with surface winds. 
The increased instability tonight will come from cooler air aloft 
associated with an upper level 500mb shortwave prognosticated to push 
across the region overnight. Plenty of moisture will remain in place 
for showers and thunderstorms as sounding remain fairly moist and 
1000-500mb relative humidity values remain fairly high. The cold front will be over 
the Eastern Upper Peninsula by 18z Saturday...pushing most of the 
shower and thunderstorm potential over the far eastern u.P. A few 
thunderstorms could be strong Saturday afternoon ahead of the cold 
front over the far eastern u.P. Saturday afternoon as the shortwave 
and cold front become nearly collocated while shear values around 
around 35 to 40 knots perpendicular to the front. Strong wind gusts 
and small hail would be the main threat. By late in the day 
Saturday...additional showers and an isolated thunderstorm or two 
will begin pushing in over the far west as the next 500mb shortwave 
rotates into the the area. 


Long term...(sunday through friday) 
issued at 343 am EDT Sat Sep 20 2014 


On Sunday...the pv anomaly currently over central Alberta will be 
just south of the area. This will allow for low pressure to develop 
Saturday night into Sunday along the front which is expected to move 
through the area this afternoon and this evening. Expect any rain 
associated with this wave to be focused near the Michigan/WI border Sunday 
morning where the best moisture and frontogenetic forcing will be 
located. However...this should move out by afternoon with high 
pressure and anticyclonic flow moving in during the day. As 
such...will continue with chance probability of precipitation across the east half of the 
forecast area Sun morning. With strong cold advection and a 
tightening pressure gradient...it will be quite raw Sun morning with 
gusty north winds and temperatures only in the 40s. Temperatures should rebound 
some Sun afternoon as the sun comes out...but the worry is that areas 
closer to Lake Superior may stay in the clouds for much of the day 
due to the upslope northerly flow and continued low level moisture 
per model soundings. Will therefore trend toward the lower end of 
guidance for Sunday with temperatures near Lake Superior in the low-middle 50s 
while areas closer to the WI border will be close to 60. 


Sun night into Monday will be quite tranquil with high pressure in 
control. Would not be shocked to see some frost Sun night/Monday 
morning with clearing skies and light winds due to precipitable water values under 
0.40 inch. In fact...even the native NAM guidance suggests temperatures 
near freezing at MQT. Will therefore expand patchy frost for most 
inland locations in the Upper Peninsula. The east may see the 
coldest temperatures Monday morning due to the coldest temperatures aloft. 
Otherwise...Monday will be a pleasant autumn day with mostly sunny 
skies and temperatures in the 60s as 850mb temperatures rise to +10 by Monday 
evening. 


Tuesday through Friday...looks like a quiet and Indian Summer type 
setup for the week with building heights across the region Midwest 
and Great Lakes...leading to generally dry and warm conditions. Only 
chance for rain would be Wednesday night into Thursday with the GFS and European model (ecmwf) 
suggesting a weak upper disturbance moving through the area in the 
west-northwest flow aloft. Otherwise...expect temperatures well into the 70s for much 
of the time period. Warmest day may be Friday with the GFS and European model (ecmwf) 
suggesting 850mb temperatures of +14 ahead of a developing trough over the 
High Plains. 
&& 


Aviation...(for the 06z tafs through 06z Saturday night) 
issued at 119 am EDT Sat Sep 20 2014 


Expect ceilings to gradually deteriorate to MVFR and then IFR at all 3 
taf sites by sunrise as SW flow advects more low level moisture into Upper Michigan 
in advance of an aprchg cold fnt. Best chance for some LIFR conditions 
will be at cmx...where wind shift to a more favorable upslope west direction 
coincident with the arrival of the fnt will enhance upslope cooling. 
There will be some -shra...and even an elevated ts is possible...but no 
sgnft visibility restrictions are likely. As dry air moves into the area 
on Sat behind the frontal passage...conditions will improve to VFR. But another 
trough will swing through the area this evening...and some low clouds/MVFR or 
even IFR ceilings may move in off lake supply. 
&& 


Marine...(for the 4 PM Lake Superior forecast issuance) 
issued at 359 PM EDT Friday Sep 19 2014 


As a strong pressure gradient linger over the eastern half of Lake 
Superior...expect strong southerly winds to gust to 20 to 30 knots 
through the evening hours. A few gales to 35 knots will be possible 
for the higher platforms and closer to the Upper Michigan shoreline 
through this evening. These gusty south winds will gradually 
diminish across the east half of the lake overnight tonight through 
Saturday as the trough moves across Lake Superior. Expect a period 
of westerly winds of up to 20 knots Saturday afternoon and northwest winds 
to 20 knots Sunday behind this trough. Winds will remain under 20 
knots through much of next week as a series of high pressure systems 
moves over the upper Great Lakes. It is possible...however...that 
wind could gust to 25 knots Monday afternoon as a fast moving trough 
swings across Lake Superior.
