NWS Forecaster Discussion

Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Marquette Michigan 
727 am EDT Sat Nov 1 2014 

Short term...(today and tonight) 
issued at 415 am EDT Sat Nov 1 2014 

The combination of warm air advection at 850 mb and lowering subsidence inversion 
heights ahead of approaching middle-level ridge from the plains appears to 
have ended the lake effect snow over the area as noted on radar 
imagery early this morning. However...infrared satellite imagery reveals 
that stratocu lake clouds still linger roughly east of a line from 
Houghton through L'Anse to Iron Mountain in a light northerly 
onshore flow ahead of a surface ridge axis centered over Western Lake 
Superior and north central WI. Clearing along the WI bdr in Gogebic and western 
Iron counties has allowed temperatures to fall into the lower teens in many 
places. Wakefield has even reached into the single digits with a 
reading of 5f in the past hour. 

The big short term forecast challenge will be timing the clearing of 
these lake clouds as the surface ridge axis continues to work across 
forecast area today. 

Today...expect clearing of lake clouds to reach into MQT...Dickinson 
and mnm counties just before sunrise as winds back more northwest. Clearing 
will be slowest over eastern counties...perhaps not until late afternoon 
when onshore northerly winds back more W-SW. Warm air advection SW flow developing 
on the backside of the ridge axis will allow temperatures to rebound into 
the lower 40s west and scntrl under sunny skies. Expect only middle to 
upper 30s far east where clearing will be delayed as metnioned 

Tonight...with increasing srly flow/isentropic ascent under 
sharpening pressure gradient between slowly departing surface hi pressure ridge and 
developing low pressure in the northern plains associated with shortwave lifting 
northeastward through the northern rockies...models indicate increasing middle/hi level 
relative humidity. But since the low level feed of air will remain dry and with an absence 
of any other forcing under 500 mb height rises ahead of incoming upper ridge 
axis...expect only an increase in middle/hi clouds especially over the west 
half. These clouds and increasing srly flow will limit the nocturnal 
temperature fall especially in the downslope areas near Lake Superior over 
the west half. Look for inland min temperatures west half generally in the middle 
20s with readings closer to 30f along the lake. For eastern 
counties...where the gradient is slacker/winds lighter and slower 
arrival of hi clouds...expect inland temperatures to fall closer to the lower 
end of guidance (around 20f) in the presence of precipitable water less than .25 
inch or about 50 percent of normal. 

Long term...(sunday through friday) 
issued at 506 am EDT Sat Nov 1 2014 

An initially amplified pattern across namerica...featuring a western Central Ridge and deep eastern trough...will deamplify some and 
become more progressive during the first half of the long term. Some 
amplification will occur again later next week as an eastern trough 
redevelops. This pattern evolution will mean that below normal temperatures 
initially will transition to normal to above early next week. There 
will then be a trend back to below normal temperatures later next week as eastern 
trough redevelops. As for precipitation...after dry weather over the 
weekend...precipitation chances will return early next week in response to 
one shortwave trough shifting across the Great Lakes region. Then... 
additional precipitation chances will be provided by 2 or 3 shortwaves that 
will work to carve out a new eastern trough during the late week period. 
Looking farther ahead...the first really cold air mass of the season 
for North America still looks like it will be developing in north central 
Canada in the 7-10 day time frame as a positive height anomaly 
develops in the vicinity of Alaska/northwest Canada and the adjacent Arctic Ocean. 
At lower appeared yesterday that a general zonal flow 
would be the rule across the Continental U.S.. appears there may be 
a bit more western ridging per European model (ecmwf) and more of the Gem ensembles to 
help drive some of this cold air a little farther S. With Pacific 
flow still undercutting the western ridge and sending shortwaves east 
across the northern Continental U.S....there could be a more active wintry precipitation 
pattern setting up for the upper lakes beyond this forecast 
period...aided by the strengthening temperature contrast over the 

Beginning sun...despite continued warm air advection/isentropic ascent between high 
pressure moving toward the Carolinas and a low pressure trough shifting out 
over the plains...forecast soundings Show Low levels remaining too dry 
to support any precipitation concerns. Under some high/middle clouds...temperatures on 
sun will rise into the 40s everywhere even with shallow mixing to 
only around 925mb on forecast soundings. If mixing reaches 900mb... 
temperatures will top 50f. Daytime mixing will tap winds up to 25-30kt... 
resulting in gusty winds that will make the air feel cooler. 

One shortwave will shift out over the northern plains Sun night 
while another moves into the southern rockies. Ahead of these 
shortwaves...SW flow will continue through the central Continental U.S. Into the 
Great Lakes. Despite the continued SW flow...moistening of the 
low-levels remains slow per forecast soundings. Combined with the lack 
of meaningful forcing...Sun night will remain dry. Steady SW flow... 
increasing precipitable water and middle/high clouds will limit 
nocturnal cooling. Expect mins in the 30s. Interior locations that 
decouple more may slip into the upper 20s. 

Monday through Tuesday night...northern shortwave will shift NE toward Hudson Bay. now looks like a piece of energy will eject out of 
the southern portion of the trough over the southern rockies and lift into the 
Great Lakes. This will help pull the better tap of Gulf moisture a 
little farther west than it appeared in previous model runs. Better 
moisture combined with forcing provided by shortwave...upper jet and 
cold front moving across the area Monday night/Tuesday morning suggests 
raising probability of precipitation from previous forecast...especially over the eastern forecast area. 
Will continue to carry dry weather through Monday morning with probability of precipitation then 
ramping up Monday aftn/night. With the departure of the shortwave Tuesday 
morning...precipitation will mostly end. However...some lake enhanced precipitation 
(mainly snow) is possible for a time under westerly flow Tuesday/Tuesday 
night as 850mb temperatures fall to -5/-6c in the presence of another 
shortwave swinging through the upper lakes. 

Of the aforementioned 2 or 3 shortwaves heading southeast to carve out the 
late week eastern trough...the first will already be approaching Wednesday 
morning. Timing/intensity/track of shortwave and associated surface wave 
are not well agreed upon by medium range guidance. The GFS is most 
robust with the surface feature as it takes a low pressure from ND across 
Upper Michigan/Lake Superior...accompanied by rain/snow and followed by 
the typical period of strong north-northwest winds/gales and lake enhanced snow. 
The Gem/European model (ecmwf) are weaker/farther S with the surface feature. Given the 
excellent run-to-run consistency of the last 3 runs of the European model (ecmwf)... 
forecast will lean more strongly toward its solution for Wed/Thu. So... 
there is the potential for a streak of rain/snow to move across the 
forecast area Wednesday/Wednesday night...especially southern portions. Lake effect/lake 
enhanced precipitation (mostly snow) should then follow Wednesday night/Thursday as 
850mb temperatures fall to at least -8c with another shortwave also 
dropping southeast across the area. 

Forecast uncertainty increases substantially for Friday due to poor model 
run-to-run consistency. looked like warm air advection/isentropic 
ascent generated precipitation would streak into the area...but now there is 
some indication that a surface high pressure ridge will dominate. 

Aviation...(for the 12z tafs through 12z Sunday morning) 
issued at 718 am EDT Sat Nov 1 2014 

Other than an MVFR lake cloud deck lifting from ksaw around 15z this 
morning...expect VFR conditions and light winds to prevail through 
the taf period at all sites as high pressure dominates. A 
strengthening low-level jet maximum ahead of low pressure trough moving into 
the plains tonight will allow for low level wind shear to develop at kiwd later this 
evening. && 

Marine...(for the 4 am Lake Superior forecast issuance) 
issued at 415 am EDT Sat Nov 1 2014 

Winds will remain generally at or below 20 kts with first a ridge 
moving across the area this weekend and then a trough/cold front 
moving through late Monday/Monday night. Look for west winds to briefly 
increase to 30 kts on Tuesday/Tuesday evening in the wake of a cold 
front...strongest over the east half of the lake. Another round of 
stronger northwest winds will be possible Thursday...with marginal gales not out 
of the question over the east half of the lake.
