Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Marquette Michigan 
752 am EDT Sat may 30 2015 


Short term...(today and tonight) 
issued at 458 am EDT Sat may 30 2015 


The initial focus for the short term is the departing rain showers 
behind the cold front that moved through the area yesterday 
afternoon/evening. As of 4am...rain showers are currently southeast 
of a line from Iron Mountain to Munising. To the west...have seen an 
occasional report of drizzle over north central Wisconsin and 
visibilities have been bouncing between 8-10mi at kiwd...leading to 
the expectation of some light drizzle or fog. Farther to the 
west...the influence of the drier air seen on the 00z kinl are 
starting to near the western part of the County Warning Area with ceilings rising to 
VFR values at kcmx this past evening and in northwest Wisconsin. Expect the 
showers to continue to move northeast while the overall push is to 
the southeast (aided by the upper trough moving through northern 
Ontario and the surface trough continuing to move southeast through 
lower michigan). Thus...will show continued decreasing probability of precipitation from 
northwest to southeast through the morning hours...with the showers 
out of the u.P. By middle morning. Behind the showers...that low level 
dry air (associated with an approaching high) will eat away at what 
remains of the low clouds from northwest to southeast and produce 
sunny conditions over the west by early afternoon and over the 
central/east by middle-late afternoon. Even with the expected 
sunshine...the cool northerly flow will lead to temperatures 10 to 
20 degrees below normal across the u.P. The coldest temperatures 
will occur over the northern u.P. Due to the cooling influence of 
Lake Superior...with areas in the north central u.P. Seeing highs in 
the middle-upper 40s. 


The high tries to nose into the area tonight...but the center of the 
high remains just to the north of Lake Superior. This leads to light 
northeasterly flow over Upper Michigan and produces concerns on how 
low temperatures will fall tonight. With the dry air becoming 
established over the u.P. This afternoon...the clear skies and 
precipitable water values around 0.25in (nearing record low value 
for kgrb sounding on 5/31 at 12z of 0.23in) would lead to a 
favorable radiational cooling night. But with the high staying to 
the north of the area...there appears to be enough of a low level 
gradient flow to (925mb winds of 20-25kts) to lead to some mixing 
and keep the best radiational cooling conditions from occurring. 
That being said...still think areas over the interior west will see 
temperatures falling below freezing and into the upper 20s in the 
normal cold RAWS sites. After coordination with grb...issued a 
freeze warning for Gogebic/Ontonagon/Iron and southern Houghton counties 
for tonight. For the rest of the area...the influence of the Great 
Lakes and the potential for slightly stronger winds should keep 
temperatures in the lower 30s (will likely see some bouncing of 
values through the night as winds briefly increase in some 
locations). Have issued a frost advisory for the central u.P. And 
the Keweenaw for the expected cold temperatures and frost. Did leave 
out Schoolcraft/Luce County for now...since forecasted lows are in 
the middle 30s and winds are expected to be higher. That led to lower 
confidence for widespread frost and will let the day shift take one 
final look. 


Finally...the Flood Advisory for the Michigamme river near Crystal 
Falls continues into early afternoon...with values staying steady 
about 0.1ft above action stage over the last 18-20hrs. 


Long term...(sunday through friday) 
issued at 458 am EDT Sat may 30 2015 


Last 24hrs of medium range model runs remain consistent on the 
overall changes that will be occurring during the long term. Northern 
stream ridging/positive height anomaly over far western Canada/Alaska 
vicinity that has been a prominent feature for many weeks...and really 
much of this year...will be weakening as it retrogrades to the northwest of 
Alaska. Meanwhile...a trough will be developing over the northwest Continental U.S. 
Which will force downstream height rises over the Great Lakes. These 
changes will lead to a warmer pattern (above normal temps) during 
the middle and late part of the upcoming week. Prior to that...one last 
surge of cold air currently diving S into the upper Great Lakes will 
bring frosty nights (tonight and Sun night and probably even Monday 
night in some areas). As for precipitation...dry/Canadian air mass will 
dominate for the next several days under slow moving surface high pressure 
ridge. During the last half of the upcoming week...pattern looks 
active with periods of rain showers/thunderstorms and rain as the northwest Continental U.S. Trough sends energy 
downstream. 


Beginning sun...while the center of the parent surface high pressure will 
drift east to Quebec on sun...ridging back to the west-southwest will result in 
another high center developing over the chilly waters of Lake 
Superior in typical early warm season fashion. Slow moving 
shortwave trough shifting across northern Ontario and approaching Western Lake 
Superior may spread a fair amount of high clouds across the forecast 
area during the day per GFS/NAM relative humidity forecasts. Expect maximum temperatures from 
around 50 north to around 60 scntrl/interior west. Most Lakeside locations 
along Lake Superior will stay in the 40s. 


Underneath the surface high pressure ridge axis Sun night...radiational 
cooling potential across Upper Michigan is better Sun night than tonight. 
NAM/GFS precipitable water Sun night is similar to tonight... 
suggesting similar cooling potential between the 2 nights. However... 
the complicating factor is cloud cover as the aformentioned slow 
moving shortwave drifts over the upper lakes. GFS/NAM suggest scattered to 
perhaps broken high clouds over the area. Normally would go at or below 
lowest guidance given the dry air mass and surface ridge over the 
area...but with the cloud cover uncertainty...will stay within the 
lower range of the guidance temperature spread for this forecast issuance. 
Still looks like a frost/freeze is likely in the interior. 


With upper level trough drifting east of the area during the day Monday... 
there will be an increase in sunshine compared to sun. Surface high pressure 
continues to ridge back into the upper Great Lakes...so it will be 
another day with a mesoscale high pressure center redeveloping over Lake 
Superior during the afternoon...probably over Northern Lake Michigan as well. 
Thus...lake breezes will again be the rule...though the lake breeze 
off Lake Superior will not extend as far inland as on sun. In the 
interior away from lake cooling...temperatures should rise into the 
middle/upper 60s. 50s expected near the lakes. 


On Monday night...dry air mass continues to linger...especially central 
and east where precipitable water remains around a quarter inch. There 
is some uncertainty in how quickly pressure gradient tightens and return 
flow begins...but it will likely be slow enough to result in one 
more chilly night with some frost over the central and eastern forecast area. 
Continued the cooler trend from previous shift for min temperatures Monday 
night based on the latest guidance. Increasing moisture/return flow 
will yield a warmer night over the west...more notable in the areas 
that see downsloping under S winds. 


Dry weather lingers Tuesday with temperatures back close normal as 850mb temperatures 
rise to around 6c by midday. Expect highs around 70 west and 
around 60 along the Great Lakes shores. 


Shortwaves ejecting from the northwest Continental U.S. Trough will begin to 
affect the upper lakes during the Wednesday through Friday time frame. With surface 
high pressure to the east and low pressure troffing over the plains... 
warmth/moisture/instability will build north and east toward the area. Cold 
front drifting S and east through scntrl Canada toward the upper lakes 
will be a key feature for focusing shra/tsra...the potential for heavy 
rainfall and possibly severe storms late week. Latest wpc guidance 
shows front settling over Upper Michigan by Friday morning and drifting S 
into WI/lower Michigan by Sat morning. If the front does end up over Upper 
Michigan Friday morning...Thu/Fri will probably be the period most likely to 
see rain showers/thunderstorms and rain over the area along with potential for some heavy 
rainfall as GFS shows precipitable water to a little over 200pct of 
normal. Warming will continue Wed/Thu. Temperatures on Friday will be highly 
dependent on where frontal boundary is located. This will be most 
critical close to Lake Superior as that area will see an onshore 
wind if the front does drop into Upper Michigan.

Aviation...(for the 12z tafs through 12z Sunday morning) 
issued at 751 am EDT Sat may 30 2015 


A tricky start to the taf forecast...with pockets of low clouds 
leading to low confidence for the first couple of hours of the 
forecast. These pockets have affected all three sites this 
morning...with it being the most persistent at kiwd. Recent drops 
in the visibility at the site and combined with webcams in the area 
indicate a combination of drizzle/fog affecting the site at the 
start of the forecast. Have continued that idea for the first 
couple of hours with slowing rising ceilings as drier low level air 
moves into the site. Expect similar pockets of low clouds to 
influence kcmx and potentially ksaw. The low clouds at ksaw are 
difficult to pin down as they are present at the office...but 
webcams upstream of ksaw Don/T show any low clouds. Thus...have 
trended the taf to VFR and will amend if needed if webcams 
indicate low clouds developing. 


Otherwise...as a high pressure ridge moves into the area this 
afternoon...expect a transition to VFR at all sites with decreasing 
winds. VFR conditions are then expected to prevail for the next 
several days. 
&& 


Marine...(for the 4 am Lake Superior forecast issuance) 
issued at 458 am EDT Sat may 30 2015 


The strongest winds through the middle of next week will occur 
through this afternoon...as Lake Superior is between a departing 
cold front and a high building into the area from Manitoba. Expect 
northerly winds up to 25kts this morning (and maybe some gusts to 
30kts at the higher platforms) before quickly diminishing this 
afternoon and evening as the high builds over the area. This high 
will lead to light winds (largely under 15kts) through the middle 
of the upcoming work week. 


Finally...will allow the dense fog advisory over Eastern Lake 
Superior to expire at 5am this morning due to the drier low level 
air arriving with the northerly winds and the lack of fog on ship 
observations.
