Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Marquette Michigan 417 PM EDT Wednesday Apr 1 2015 Short term...(this evening through thursday) issued at 402 PM EDT Wednesday Apr 1 2015 Middle to high warm air advection clouds and light showers linger from North Lake Superior through the east third of the County Warning Area at 20z this afternoon. The main focus is turning to the west where we have ongoing convection being helped out by the Lake Superior lake breeze. Expect this area that has been producing pea sized hail to diminish in intensity as it exits the lake breeze area and moves closer to Upper Michigan. Kept the potential for isolated thunderstorms along the WI border through the overnight hours...closer to the ribbon of instability over WI. With strong warm air advection and a 40-50kt low level jet tonight...expect temperatures to stay in the 40s for most locations. The favorable downslope areas over the west half /excluding the Keweenaw peninsula/ along Lake Superior may stay in the middle 40s. Over the east a few pockets of upper 30s will not be out of the question...farther away from the nearing surface low over east ND and far west Minnesota...with a few more pockets of clearing possible. Expect low relative humidity/strong gusty winds to develop Thursday afternoon...with relative humidity values bottoming out 20-25 percent west of a line from around Baraga to Iron Mountain. After coordinating with fire user groups and due to The Pockets of snow still in the Woods...and recent precipitation...a wildfire potential statement or Fire Weather Watch is not needed at this time. Expect temperatures to rise near 60f over the west half of the County Warning Area...while linger in the 50s west-west-southwest under increasing surface winds. Expect middle to late afternoon gusts nearing 30mph over the far west near iwd. Long term...(thursday night through wednesday) issued at 417 PM EDT Wednesday Apr 1 2015 Thursday night into Friday...shortwave and associated cold front push through Upper Michigan Thursday evening. Cold air advection in the wake of the front will drop 850 mb temperatures to -10c to -12c by 12z/Fri. With inversion heights dropping to around 5k feet...and marginal instability for les...only lower end chance probability of precipitation were included from late Thursday night through Friday morning for northwest flow favored areas. Also with fairly extensive ice cover lingering over much of Eastern Lake Superior this may further limit any les over eastern counties. With much colder air moving in expect fridays high temperatures in the lower to middle 30s...about 25 degrees lower than Thursday. Friday night into Sat...precipitation chances will increase again late Friday night into Saturday as models show another weak clipper shortwave moving through the northern lakes. However...with only limited moisture available in a northwest flow and fairly weak forcing indicated...any snowfall amounts should amount from a dusting to half an inch. If precipitation occurs south central it could briefly mix with rain due to expected warmer temperatures there...but dryness of airmass and associated evaporative cooling should tend to keep predominant precipitation type snow. Sun...still plenty of model differences and thus lower forecast confidence as the pattern transitions from northern branch dominant to more zonal Pacific flow. The 00z/12z European model (ecmwf) runs allow another stronger shortwave to bring a batch of snow into the area sun while the GFS keeps dry conditions with middle-level and surface ridging over the area. 12z Canadian run offers more of a compromise bringing precipitation into mainly the far scntrl County Warning Area. For now will maintain going low slight chance probability of precipitation until models come into better agreement. Mon-Wed...as a trough digs into the western Continental U.S. The resulting SW flow through the plains toward the Great Lakes and warm air advection pattern could bring additional precipitation to the northern lakes. The 12z European model (ecmwf) still shows confluent flow and drier conditions into the northern lakes on Monday similar to 00z run...but begins to trend farther north with plains system for Monday night into Tuesday night bringing precipitation into the area. Meanwhile...the 12z GFS and Gem-New Hampshire bring plains surface low and associated warm front farther north already on Monday spreading precipitation into SW and scntrl portion of the County Warning Area. Given model uncertainty for now will continue to utilize a model blend for probability of precipitation Monday into Tuesday night keeping chance probability of precipitation across the area...highest to the south closer to warm front. Wednesday looks drier as both European model (ecmwf) and GFS have high pressure ridge building in from north of Lake Superior. && Aviation...(for the 18z tafs through 18z Thursday afternoon) issued at 236 PM EDT Wednesday Apr 1 2015 Middle to high clouds will lower this evening in advance of a 40-50kt low level jet. While much of the period will be VFR ceilings/vis...there is a chance of MVFR ceilings overnight. There is a very small chance of an isolated thunderstorm at iwd 02-04z. && Marine...(for the 4 PM Lake Superior forecast issuance) issued at 402 PM EDT Wednesday Apr 1 2015 As a ridge of high pressure moves off the middle Atlantic coast tonight...low pressure just west of International Falls will move east. An associated trough/cold front will Cross Lake Superior late tonight and Thursday morning while the low moves over North Ontario. South-southeast- S gale force gusts of 35kts will be possible over mainly Central Lake Superior into the early overnight hours. A secondary cold front will then Cross Lake Superior Thursday evening as the low moves across James Bay. High pressure will then move into the north Central Plains on Friday...and the middle MS and Ohio River valleys on Saturday. Look for a weak trough to cross the upper Great Lakes on Saturday. For Sunday and Monday...a high will settle across Manitoba and Ontario...as broad low pressure forms across the Central Plains. && MQT watches/warnings/advisories... Upper Michigan... none. Lake Superior... Gale Warning until 10 PM EDT this evening for lsz244-245. Gale Warning until 11 PM EDT this evening for lsz265. Gale Warning until midnight EDT tonight for lsz264-266. Lake Michigan... none. && $$ Short term...kf long term...Voss aviation...kf marine...kf
