Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Marquette Michigan 
725 PM EDT Monday Sep 1 2014 


Short term...(this evening through tuesday) 
issued at 308 PM EDT Monday Sep 1 2014 


Upper air pattern consists of a broad 500 mb trough over the 
northern rockies to the upper Great Lakes with a negative tilted 
shortwave over the upper Mississippi River valley. The shortwave 
passes through this afternoon and the upper trough passes through on 
Tuesday. Deeper moisture and dynamics leave the area tonight. 


Did not make too many changes to the going forecast except sped up 
exit of probability of precipitation for late this afternoon and tonight and delayed probability of precipitation 
for early Tuesday morning until the middle morning. Looked like there be 
enough instability with some heating and still being in the upper 
trough to have some probability of precipitation for late Tuesday morning into Tuesday afternoon 
with some diurnal instability showers possible. 


Long term...(tuesday night through monday) 
issued at 338 PM EDT Monday Sep 1 2014 


An active Middle-Range forecast ahead with a strong early-fall system 
tracking across the region Wednesday night through Thursday night. 
Heavy rainfall is possible for western Upper Michigan Wednesday 
night...followed by a very conditional chance for strong storms 
Thursday afternoon. Seasonably cool temperatures then arrive by the end of 
the week. 


Tuesday night and Wednesday morning...a weak middle-level shortwave 
trough will be exiting to the east at the beginning of the 
period...with zonal flow developing across the north central Continental U.S.. 
a weak shortwave trough currently over northwest Alberta is prognosticated 
to track across northern Ontario late Tuesday night into 
Wednesday...clipping the County Warning Area. Meanwhile...a deep trough developing 
over Alberta Wednesday will be inducing a broad surface low over the 
northern and Central High plains. Low-level moisture will be surging 
northward ahead of this trough. However...the arrival of this 
moisture along a warm front southwest of the region Wednesday does 
not line up well with the weak trough passage. Isolated showers are 
possible across Lake Superior late Tuesday night into Wednesday 
morning...but a rather dry sub-cloud layer over land should result 
in nothing more than some virga across the northwest County Warning Area. 


Wednesday afternoon and night...weak middle-level ridging will develop 
over the upper Great Lakes in response to abundant low-level warm air advection. 
With increasing 850 hpa temperatures to 14 to 16c and some clearing across 
the County Warning Area Wednesday afternoon...temperatures should rise well into the 70s to 
low 80s. While a couple light showers cannot be ruled out with the 
warm air advection in the afternoon...probability of precipitation were cut back for Wednesday given 
minimal overall support in the region. The surface warm front will push 
northward across the County Warning Area Wednesday night. The combination of precipitable waters  
surpassing 1.7 inches...the presence of a 45kt low level jet...and impressive 
isentropic lift on the 300-310k Theta sfcs all point to heavy rain 
across the western County Warning Area overnight. MUCAPE of around 1000 j/kg also 
supports this notion. Best chances for heavy rain look to be from 
The Arrowhead of Minnesota to the western counties of Upper Michigan. Greater 
than 1 inch amounts will be possible wherever embedded thunderstorms 
train over an area. While 0-6km shear will be an impressive 
50kts...freezing levels will be fairly high...at or above 13kft. This will 
result in just a marginal hail threat with any stronger elevated 
storms. 


Some guidance shows the warm front stalling along Lake Superior late 
Wednesday night. With a stronger surface low at this point tracking 
eastward along the international border...would expect the front to 
lift farther northward. However...experience leans to the former 
idea. With that said...lake temperatures well into the 50s to low 60s at 
this point support a complete frontal passage across the Western 
Lake. 


Thursday...the forecast at this point will be highly conditional 
upon on the movement of the warm front and approaching cold front. 
Thursday morning looks to have some residual showers and storms 
associated with the warm front and continued low-level moisture 
transport. Think things will clear out a decent amount from late 
morning through the afternoon across the central County Warning Area. The east is a 
little more questionable if the warm front stalls on the cooler 
Eastern Lake Superior waters. The Middle-Range model suite...excluding 
the Gem...is in good agreement of the fronts progression...with it 
reaching the far western County Warning Area around 18z. 


A fairly Stout cap around 5kft will settle across the area behind 
the warm front...so any convection will be tied to the strongest 
forcing along the cold front. Conditional upon any 
development...convective parameters are Worth a close look. A pool 
of MUCAPE values of up to 2000 j/kg associated with the increasing 
low-level moisture should reach the interior western County Warning Area by late 
afternoon. 0-6km shear vectors of 50kts from mainly speed shear will 
lie nearly perpendicular to the surface front. This would support 
discrete structures along the front. The main focus at this time is across 
the central County Warning Area where clearing can help weaken the cap ahead of the 
surface front. Once again...all of this is highly conditional upon any 
development along the front. 


Any convection should weaken Thursday even across the eastern County Warning Area as 
it enters a less-favorable environment in terms of instability. 
Complete frontal passage is expected by late Thursday night. 


Friday through Monday...wrap-around moisture with the departing 
system may bring drizzle/light showers to mainly west to 
northwesterly favored upslope regions Friday morning. Overall deeper 
moisture will be limited in the dry slot behind the cold front...so 
clouds should mix out a decent amount by the afternoon. Surface high 
pressure over the northern plains impinging on a lingering surface 
trough over Lake Superior on Friday should result in gusty northwest winds 
across much of the County Warning Area on Friday. 850 hpa temperatures fall to 1 to 4c 
across the County Warning Area on Friday...leading to seasonably cool high temperatures in 
the low to middle 60s. 


Remaining moisture will then depart the region Friday night as a 
middle-level ridge and surface high pressure build in from the upper MS 
valley. Low precipitable waters  of under 0.4 inch and weakening winds will allow 
for some cool temperatures Friday night across at least the interior west. 
Favored guidance at this point is indicating low 40s. Given the 
set-up...have followed the low end of guidance. In fact...would not 
be surprised to see temperatures fall well into the 30s for the colder 
locations. 


A weak...moisture-starved trough is prognosticated to pass across the upper 
Great Lakes Saturday night. With most of the limited forcing 
remaining north of Lake Superior...nothing more than some middle to 
high clouds are expected. Temperatures Saturday night will be dependent on 
these clouds...so did not lower temperatures as much as Friday night. 
However...in the absence of clouds...conditions will be favorable 
for more temperatures around 40 for colder locations. High pressure will 
remain in control through Sunday as broad low pressure forms across 
the northern and Central Plains. Model solutions diverge by this 
point...but conditions look dry through at least the first half of 
Monday.

Aviation...(for the 00z tafs through 00z Tuesday evening) 
issued at 723 PM EDT Monday Sep 1 2014 


Expect VFR conditions to predominate this forecast period with the slow 
arrival of drier air in the wake of departing cold fnt. Gusty west 
winds at cmx will diminish this evening with arrival of weaker pressure 
gradient and loss of daytime heating/mixing. An aprchg upper 
disturbance could bring some -shra to mainly saw on Tuesday afternoon...but 
expected dry low level air should maintain predominant VFR weather even if the 
-shra occur. 
&& 


Marine...(for the 4 PM Lake Superior forecast issuance) 
issued at 308 PM EDT Monday Sep 1 2014 


Winds will be 20 knots or less through most of this forecast period 
except for Thursday night into Friday where west to northwest winds 
behind a strong cold front will approach 30 knots. This will be the 
when the strongest winds occur with no gales expected at this time.
