NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Marquette Michigan 
1032 am EDT Tuesday Jul 22 2014 


Update... 
issued at 1031 am EDT Tuesday Jul 22 2014 


Reduced probability of precipitation for today in several areas with showers/T storms being 
confined along the frontal boundary and the pre-frontal troughs. As 
of 13z...low pressure was situated over Isle Royal in Northwestern 
Lake Superior. A line of showers and thunderstorms over north 
central Upper Michigan at 14z will continue their eastward progression 
through the afternoon as the low pressure system moves into Quebec 
/by about 00z/. Still seeing around 1000 j/kg of MUCAPE across the 
east this morning...so with the front assume this will be enough to 
keep them going for now. Will lose instability as the day progresses 
though...so do not expect much in the way of severe weather/isolated 
at best. Main thing we have been seeing with storms this morning is 
heavy rain and marginally severe winds. Kept scattered showers/T 
storms in the forecast over the northwest this afternoon as wrap 
around moisture behind the exiting low could briefly bring another 
round of precipitation in...which is currently observed on radar. 


With seiching detected on Western Lake Superior with the earlier 
storms...upgraded the swim risk to moderate this afternoon for 
Marquette and Alger counties. With strong winds moving across the 
lake due to the low pressure system and the storms...felt this was 
warranted. Winds behind the front will become west-northwesterly 
late this afternoon...which will kick waves into the 3 to 4 foot 
range. Onshore flow...3 to 4 foot waves...and possible water level 
fluctuations with any seiching could develop strong rip 
currents...particularly in areas with pre-existing rip channels 
within the sandbars. This would be mainly Alger County beaches and 
Middle Bay in Marquette. 
&& 


Short term...(today and tonight) 
issued at 509 am EDT Tuesday Jul 22 2014 


Severe mesoscale convective system is currently over the western County Warning Area...which puts the focus in 
the short term on the next 12 or fewer hours. 


Expect the mesoscale convective system to continue east in line with NCEP high-res WRF arw/nmm 
and NSSL WRF. Should see overall intensity/severity of storms 
decrease as they move east due to decreasing instability over the eastern 
County Warning Area. Severe potential will continue over mainly the western half of the 
County Warning Area /what portion that is still ahead of the squall line/. Main 
threat will continue to be damaging winds...with a marginal hail 
threat also possible. Have bulk ot precipitation out of the County Warning Area by 00z 
Wednesday...with some lingering showers until 06z Wednesday. 


Long term...(wednesday through monday) 
issued at 509 am EDT Tuesday Jul 22 2014 


Over the next few Days...Ridge will build north through The Rockies into 
north central Canada...forcing a trough to deepen over eastern North America. For 
Upper Michigan...this will bring about a return to cooler weather though 
temperatures will only briefly fall back below normal for late July. Flow 
will relax/deamplify a bit heading into the weekend...allowing for 
some warming...and then the eastern trough will reamplify significantly 
next week. As a result...temperatures next week will fall back more notably 
below normal as we wrap up July. As for precipitation...dry weather during 
the last half of the work week on the backside of the eastern trough will 
trend more unsettled over the weekend as flow relaxes and shortwave 
energy tracks east-southeast into the Great Lakes. Next week...precipitation chances 
will revolve around where axis of amplifying trough sets up and how 
amplified the trough becomes. With recent European model (ecmwf) runs indicating a 
large middle/upper level low developing over the Great Lakes region... 
unsettled weather could linger early next week. 


Beginning Wed/Thu...a quiet period of weather is expected as 
upstream middle/upper ridge extending from The Rockies to north central Canada 
supports surface high pressure settling into the Great Lakes region. A 
shortwave dropping southeast through northern Ontario into the eastern trough Thursday will 
push a surface trough S toward Lake Superior. Rain showers associated with feature 
will stay north and east of Lake Superior as shortwave will be too far to 
the north and east of forecast area. Wednesday will be the coolest day of the two 
under weakening gradient nearly flow ahead of approaching high. It 
will be coolest along Lake Superior east of kmqt where temperatures Lakeside 
will struggle to get out of the 50s with long fetch of wind across 
the lake. In the interior...mixing to 850-800mb on forecast soundings 
yields maximum temperatures into the low/middle 70s. 850mb temperatures rise a few 
degrees for Thursday...and this should result in interior maximum temperatures 
rising well into the 70s to near 80f. Under a dry air mass 
(precipitable water 40-50pct of normal) with light/calm wind...Wednesday 
night will be a chilly night. Favored min temperatures at or below the lowest 
available guidance. Traditional cold spots may slip just below 40f. 


Should be able to get one more dry day in on Friday though there are 
indications of a shortwave pushing through the deamplifying ridge. 
Given rather weak 850mb flow/warm air advection into Upper Michigan...will maintain a dry 
forecast Friday. 


Over the weekend and on into Monday...shortwave energy will track east-southeast 
into the upper Great Lakes...followed by reamplification of the eastern 
trough. This evolution of the pattern will provide the potential for 
scattered rain showers...and perhaps some thunder at times Sat/sun. 
&& 


Aviation...(for the 12z tafs through 12z Wednesday morning) 
issued at 738 am EDT Tuesday Jul 22 2014 


Large complex of thunderstorms over the region will move east today. 
Low level moisture behind the complex will lead to lowered ceilings this 
afternoon before lifting this evening as drier air moves in. 
&& 


Marine...(for the 4 am Lake Superior forecast issuance) 
issued at 509 am EDT Tuesday Jul 22 2014 


A complex of thunderstorms is moving across Lake Superior early this 
morning...with severe winds and marginally severe hail possible 
along the squall line. The thunderstorms will move to east of the 
lake by this evening. In addition to possible severe winds along the 
squall line...west winds may increase for a period behind the line. 
High pressure will settle into the Great Lakes late Wednesday through 
Sat...providing a period of light winds. 


On a final note...fog will continue to expand on Lake Superior today 
before drier air spreads southeast...clearing the fog from northwest to southeast later 
today and tonight.
