Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Marquette Michigan 707 am EDT sun Apr 19 2015 Short term...(today and tonight) issued at 304 am EDT sun Apr 19 2015 Upper air pattern consists of a 500 mb low over eastern Colorado this morning in an embedded trough and another trough over the northern plains. Both troughs head slowly east with the southern one getting absorbed into the northern one tonight while the northern trough only makes it to the upper Mississippi River valley tonight. NAM takes some deeper moisture and 850-500 mb q-vector convergence and moves it across the western County Warning Area today while keeping the east half dry before deeper moisture and stronger q-vector convergence moves in tonight across the whole County Warning Area. The low level isentropic surfaces of i290k for the NAM and GFS show the story with dry southeast flow preventing the eastward advance of precipitation for today across the east half of the County Warning Area and will go with a dry forecast. Models were hinting at this yesterday with drying the east out and will go with this scenario today and confine probability of precipitation to the west half of the County Warning Area with the highest probability of precipitation in the far west. Looks like there will be a shortwave that moves in and affects mainly the eastern half of the County Warning Area tonight and will have highest probability of precipitation there with likely probability of precipitation in the west half. Some of the computer models were putting out some quantitative precipitation forecast this afternoon over the eastern half of the County Warning Area...but will go with a dry air scenario preventing anything from hitting the ground and at most will see virga if even that over the eastern half of the County Warning Area. Looked too warm for snow and kept out of the forecast for tonight as transition and cold air arrive Monday morning. Overall...slowed eastward progression of probability of precipitation down and kept temperatures pretty much the same as southeast winds are not a real warm wind. Long term...(monday through saturday) issued at 512 am EDT sun Apr 19 2015 Cooler with unsettled weather will be the theme for much of this period. This will be as the surface low set up across north lower Michigan at 12z Monday /with an inverted trough stretched up across Lake Superior and SW Ontario/. The surface low will eject NE over east Ontario by 00z...continuing the exit of the more steady rain/rain showers during the day Monday. By 12z Tuesday the surface low will not move much...but will extend a surface trough/secondary cold front across the west third of the County Warning Area. This will be timed out well with the 500mb low nearing the area...and 850mb temperatures falling to around -7c. The result will be an enhanced area of precipitation over the west third of Upper Michigan Tuesday morning. A quick burst of less than 2in of snow is anticipated. With temperatures bottoming out around freezing Monday night/Tuesday morning...the best chance of accumulating snow will be on grassy surfaces. Middle 30s to middle 40s will be common through Friday...with the highest temperatures S central. It will be difficult to get rid of at least a mention of precipitation through this period as the surface low lingers along the Ontario/Quebec border Monday evening through Wednesday evening...before shifting to mainly S Quebec through Saturday. The broad 500mb low overhead Tuesday into early Thursday will move to the lower Great Lakes and Quebec Thursday night...but keep additional disturbances rolling in on the northwest flow through Saturday. The operational GFS and European model (ecmwf) do not have 850mb temperatures warming above - 7c from Tuesday night on through at least Friday. Much of this period will see surface temperatures of 10 to 15f below normal. && Aviation...(for the 12z tafs through 12z Monday morning) issued at 707 am EDT sun Apr 19 2015 VFR conditions are expected at kiwd/kcmx/ksaw through this afternoon as low- level southeast winds emanating from departing high pressure work to keep drier air in place. Scattered -shra will continue at kiwd early this morning. This evening...ceilings should fall to MVFR at kiwd with passage of surface trough and a wind shift to an upslope northwest direction off Lake Superior. At ksaw...VFR conditions will prevail until late tonight when winds switch to a NE direction which is upslope and should bring MVFR visible and ceilings to saw. Should stay VFR at cmx through the period with dry east flow continuing. && Marine...(for the 4 am Lake Superior forecast issuance) issued at 304 am EDT sun Apr 19 2015 As a low moves towards the area today...southeast winds will be on the increase and would expect winds up to 30 kts over the east half of Lake Superior with a few gale force gusts to 35 knots over the northeastern part of Lake Superior this afternoon. Once the low becomes established to the southwest of James Bay Monday night...expect west to northwest winds up to 25 knots to be in place through much of the upcoming work week. && MQT watches/warnings/advisories... Upper Michigan... none. Lake Superior... none. Lake Michigan... none. && $$ Short term...07 long term...kf aviation...07 marine...07
