Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Marquette Michigan 716 PM EST Thursday Feb 11 2016 Short term...(this evening through friday) issued at 403 PM EST Thursday Feb 11 2016 See the west-southwest for expectations during upcoming event. Essentially...an upper low dropping from Hudson Bay to western Quebec tonight into Friday night will lead to a sharp surface trough and cold front moving north-S through the area tonight...then lingering a trough over Central Lake Superior into the beginning of the long term period. Should have 850mb temperatures of around -21c over the area right now...but those temperatures will be dropping to around -29c by 00z Sat behind the upper trough that immediately follows the surface trough. Expect a narrow band of heavy les along the surface trough tonight...then will see moderate to heavy les develop late tonight through Friday. Another significant factor in headline decisions was the winds...gusting to 45 miles per hour along the Lake Superior shore between Marquette and Grand Marais. Expect to see blizzard like conditions...with zero or near zero visibilities...along M-28 between Harvey and Munising. For this reason decided to go with lake effect warning for Marquette and Alger counties. Elsewhere near Lake Superior...combo of snow and blowing snow justified lake effect advisories. May also need Delta County in an advisory if a strong band can extend into the northestern part of the County...but will let future shifts monitor for that potential. Have temperatures mostly falling on Friday...with noon Friday temperatures in the single digits over all but Lake Michigan bordering areas. The cold temperatures and increasing winds will lead to wind chill values falling to -25 from west to east on Friday...even starting the day with -25 wind chill over the west. Long term...(friday night through thursday) issued at 243 PM EST Thursday Feb 11 2016 NAM shows a deep and broad 500 mb trough over the eastern half of the U.S. 00z Sat with a ridge over The Rockies. A shortwave moves into the upper Mississippi River valley 00z Monday. Lake effect snow will continue this forecast period with a slow winding down of the event. Airmass will be cold and made a few adjustments downward for low temperatures away from the lake effect snow belts as airmass is coldest of the season so far. Overall though...did not make too many changes to the going forecast. In the extended...GFS and European model (ecmwf) show a broad 500 mb trough over the eastern half of the U.S. 12z Monday. Surface cold front dividing the cold air from warmer air sites just to the north of the area through Tuesday...and then this front moves through the County Warning Area on Wednesday. What this will mean is a warming trend with temperatures warming to near normal. && Aviation...(for the 00z tafs through 00z Friday evening) issued at 712 PM EST Thursday Feb 11 2016 West winds ahead of a trough will keep lake effect confined to kcmx through this evening. Could see some temporary improvement in visibility at kcmx but ceilings should remain MVFR. At kiwd and ksaw...conditions will be VFR this evening. Expect conditions to deteriorate late tonight into Friday as a trough and stronger north-northwest winds will bring much colder air...lake effect snow and blowing snow into the region. && Marine...(for the 4 PM Lake Superior forecast issuance) issued at 403 PM EST Thursday Feb 11 2016 As low pressure approaches the area from the north tonight expect winds to increase over Lake Superior. Gales are expected late tonight into Friday night across Lake Superior as next shot of cold air moves in and the pressure gradient tightens ahead of the low. Freezing spray will also increase with the heaviest freezing spray tonight through Saturday. Winds will continue to be gusty through Saturday...up to 30 knots...before high pressure slides in Saturday night through Sunday bringing winds in the 15 to 25 knot range. && MQT watches/warnings/advisories... Upper Michigan... lake effect Snow Advisory until 7 am EST Saturday for miz001>003- 084. Wind Chill Advisory from 9 am Friday to 9 am CST Saturday for miz009>011. Lake effect Snow Advisory from 1 am Friday to 7 am EST Saturday for miz004-007-085. Lake effect snow warning from 1 am Friday to 7 am EST Saturday for miz005-006. Lake Superior... heavy freezing spray warning until 4 PM EST Saturday for lsz263>267. Gale Warning from 7 am Friday to 1 am EST Saturday for lsz264>266.
