NWS Forecaster Discussion




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.
