NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Marquette Michigan 
332 PM EDT Sat Oct 25 2014 


Short term...(today and tonight) 
issued at 350 am EDT Sat Oct 25 2014 


..a sunny but breezy day... 


WV loop and current observations indicate a strong shortwave passing 
by over northern Ontario. Surface low around 990mb is over far northern 
Ontario while initial cold front is crossing Lake Superior and western 
County Warning Area. Canadian and National Weather Service MQT/apx radars show area of rain expanding 
over Eastern Lake Superior but bulk of the rain/colder cloud tops 
aloft is staying closer to track of shortwave...and will miss Upper 
Michigan. Clouds beginning to clear out and by daybreak it should be 
clear for all but far east County Warning Area. Another push of stratocu clouds at 
h9-850 mb seems destined to drop across at least northwest County Warning Area by late 
this morning...with clouds then diminishing through the afternoon with 
this overall very dry airmass eventually winning out. Temperatures today 
in the 50s overall...though some low 60s could occur over parts of 
central and east County Warning Area into the afternoon. Temperatures may become steady middle-late 
afternoon for those areas...or perhaps fall slightly as 950-925mb cool 
air advection begins kicking in. 


Winds remain the main issue for today. Tight pressure gradient on 
southwest flank of Ontario low will be battling lack of strong 
instability as cool air advection is marginal though most of the 
day. Decent winds just off the surface with 925mb winds 35-43 kts... 
strongest over Keweenaw as well as Eastern Lake Superior and adjacent 
County Warning Area. Elsewhere 25-30 kts are in the mixed layer. Good efficient 
mixing due to the mostly sunny conditions and the tight pressure 
gradient will result in wind gusts near 40 miles per hour from Keweenaw to 
shoreline of Alger and Luce County...with 25-35 miles per hour gusts elsewhere. 
Strongest winds will occur most of the day into early evening along 
Lake Superior and occur mainly from late morning into late afternoon over 
inland areas. Lack of isallobaric component to winds and the marginal 
unstable profile leads to only a marginal setup to see advisory level 
winds anywhere in County Warning Area. Will continue to mention hazard in 
hwo/ewho...but not issue any kind of Wind Advisory for land areas. 
Due to higher waves at end of fetch over Eastern Lake Superior could 
see minor beach eroision and will also mention this in severe weather potential statement. 


Winds diminish tonight...but should be enough wind to keep temperatures from 
falling off too much. Put lowest temperatures in middle 30s over far West County warning area 
in Gogebic County closer to surface ridge axis. Otherwise...min temperatures 
should stay in the upper 30s or lower 40s as even with no clouds 
around...a light but steady northwest wind persists. 


Long term...(sunday night through saturday) 
issued at 332 PM EDT Sat Oct 25 2014 


A 500mb ridge will be over the County Warning Area at 00z Monday...but will move east by 
12z Monday as an upper trough moves into the northern plains accompanied by 
a broad surface low across Minnesota. Expect showers /and possibly some 
thunderstorms/ associated with warm air advection/isentropic ascent ahead of the 
low to move across the western County Warning Area Sun night in Monday morning...then 
across the rest of the area Monday morning and afternoon. The upper 
trough will then shift across the County Warning Area Tuesday into Tuesday night...with 
intensification of the broad surface low occurring. Exactly when/where 
the best cyclogenesis occurs is uncertain due to model disagreement 
on multiple shortwaves moving through the upper trough. Despite 
lacking exact details...the precipitation forecast remains somewhat more 
certain. Rain showers /again with a chance of thunderstorms/ should 
move across the area late Monday evening through Monday night...but the 
dry slot will lead to a drier forecast for Tuesday morning. Wrap around 
moisture and cooler northwesterly flow will lead to lake enhanced rain and 
snow showers late Tuesday into Thursday as 850mb temperatures fall as low as 
-5c...although a diminishing trend in shower coverage is expected 
through this time. Monday and Tuesday will see high temperatures in the upper 40s 
to middle 50s...but Wednesday will only see highs reach the low to middle 40s. 


Wednesday night and Thursday morning look dry for the most part as a surface ridge 
shifts across the area...but clouds will cover the area due to ample 
low level moisture as well as flow off Lake Superior. 


Poor run to run continuity from the models does not lend much 
confidence for Thursday through next Sat as they point to a deeper trough 
moving through the region...bringing much colder temperatures at or below 
-10c. As mentioned models vary from run to run and disagree with 
each other on all but the very general pattern...and even at that 
the timing of when and for how long the cold air moves overhead is 
not agreed on. Will have chances of lake effect/enhanced snow Thursday 
night into Friday night. For Sat...models want to bring a surface high into 
the area but with continued uncertainty. Will keep probability of precipitation going into 
Sat for lake effect...but just slight chance for now. High temperatures on 
Friday may not make it out of the 30s in many locations.

Aviation...(for the 18z tafs through 18z Sunday afternoon) 
issued at 123 PM EDT Sat Oct 25 2014 


Expect gusty west-northwest winds in the 30-40kt range this afternoon under sharp 
pressure gradient between hi pressure in the northern plains and low pressure near James 
Bay to diminish a bit toward sunset with loss of daytime heating/ 
mixing. The strongest winds will occur at the more exposed cmx 
location. The winds will diminish further later tonight/Sun morning with 
closer aprch of surface hi pressure from the plains/weakening gradient. VFR 
conditions will be the rule as the incoming airmass is dry. 
&& 


Marine...(for the 4 PM Lake Superior forecast issuance) 
issued at 332 PM EDT Sat Oct 25 2014 


As strong low pressure system moves slowly west to east over 
northern Ontario...SW to west gales over 35 kts are expected into 
this evening...mainly central and East Lake Superior. Northwest winds of 20 
to 30 kts will linger into Sunday morning in wake of the low and 
before surface ridge crosses the upper Great Lakes region. After a brief 
period with winds less than 20 kts with the high pressure...southeast winds 
increase to 30 kts over mainly East Lake Superior on Monday ahead of 
an approaching low pressure system. Once this low moves to the east 
of Lake Superior on Tuesday...west winds to 30 kts and possibly up 
to gale force of 35 kts will develop late Tuesday into Tuesday 
night. Winds will then shift northwest and stay up to 30 kts into 
Wednesday...before gradually diminishing to less than 25 kts by 
Thursday.
