Short term...(today and tonight) 
issued at 404 am EDT Thursday Apr 28 2016 

Upper low and surface low over Iowa will continue to weaken today as it 
runs into persistent ridging over northern Ontario and Lake Superior 
region. Bands of light showers are trying to move over northern WI 
but greater coverage over western WI into Minnesota closer to the surface low. 
Impressive moisture gradient this morning with dewpoints still in the 
single digits over western Upper Michigan and northern WI but as high 
as 40 degrees over western WI. Main impact thus far from the upper low 
is a lot of thick high clouds. Increased sky cover today to partly 
to mostly cloudy as a result. A sprinkle may affect far SW Upper 
Michigan late this afternoon into early evening...but given the dry air 
in low-levels and seeing the bands of rain drying up as they lift 
toward Upper Michigan at this time...going to keep with a dry forecast. For 
temperatures...more clouds and 850 mb temperatures a degree or two cooler than Wednesday 
afternoon point to slightly lower readings than Wednesday for highs. Expect 
near 50 to low 50s inland near WI border and around 40 along Lake 
Superior with persistent NE wind out of Hudson Bay. Dewpoints and relative humidity 
values crashed on Wednesday afternoon...and as alluded to already...the dewpoints 
at least for West County warning area are still very low at this time. Expect less mixing 
today though with the middle-high do not have relative humidity values as 
low as Wednesday. But still may see relative humidity down to 25-30 percent in the afternoon. If 
skies become mostly sunny...dwpnts/rh would likely return to similar 
values as Wednesday. 

Middle-high clouds still in picture for tonight as the upper low slides 
slowly across WI and lower Michigan and another shortwave drops 
across northern Ontario toward upper Great Lakes. Similar to this 
morning the radiational cooling potential will be cut down so 
increased temperatures to upper 20s over cold spots of northern County Warning Area and 
in the low or even middle 30s elsewhere. 

Long term...(friday through wednesday) 
issued at 345 am EDT Thursday Apr 28 2016 

Hudson Bay hi pressure will remain the dominant influence on Upper Michigan into 
early next week...bringing an extended period of dry weather to the area 
until at least Monday. There will be a low pressure developing over the plains on 
Sat associated with a strong disturbance lifting out of a southern branch 
upper trough over the SW Continental U.S.. but since this shortwave/surface low will 
encounter a confluent northwest flow aloft on the SW flank of persistent northern 
branch troffing over Quebec...the low pressure/accompanying deep moisture and 
precipitation will be shunted to the S as the shortwave shears out through the Ohio 
River valley. Many of the medium range models show a pair of shortwaves 
in the northern branch northwest flow sliding southeast just to the east of the upper lakes 
over the weekend...but dryness of low level airmass associated with the 
NE flow out of the Hudson Bay hi pressure...which is climatologically 
favored to bring dry weather to Upper Michigan...should limit the impact to just 
some clouds over mainly the eastern County Warning Area. 

Temperatures should run at or below normal through the coming weekend with 850 mb temperatures 
forecast from about 0c to a few degrees below 0c. Early morning lows will dip to 
around 30 at the colder interior locations on Sat through Monday with dry 
air dominating and favoring good nocturnal cooling...but a good deal 
of sunshine will also allow for sharp diurnal temperature recovery during the 
afternoon to at least near 60 where there is more sunshine and away from 
the cooling influence of the lakes. 

In the longer term...temperatures should warm up at least briefly early 
next week as the Hudson Bay hi pressure drifts farther east toward the Canadian 
Maritimes and Upper Michigan becomes dominated by a west-southwest flow on the northwest flank 
of a ridge axis extending southwestward from that hi to another hi pressure center 
over the Central Plains. Some of the models show 850 mb temperatures 
rebounding to as hi as 8c late Monday into Tuesday. But any warmup is 
likely to be brief as the upper trough over Quebec is forecast to deepen and 
strengthen the northwest flow aloft into the upper lakes next week. Shortwaves 
dropping through this northwest flow and attendant cold fropas will bring some 
cooler weather along with at least a chance for some showers to the upper lakes 
as early as Tuesday. Timing differences among the models and absence of 
moisture inflow will limit probability of precipitation to the low chance category during this time. 

Despite the recent MDT to heavy rain and expected at or below normal temperatures 
through the weekend...the upcoming extended period of dry weather before 
Greenup may cause fire weather issues to become a concern...especially 
early next week during the expected brief warmup. Some of the longer 
range models show a tighter pressure gradient developing for a time before 
the initial cold frontal passage on Tuesday. If the stronger west-southwest flow ahead of the 
fnt occurs during daytime warming/mixing...gusty winds/low relative humidity could 
heighten fire weather issues. 

Aviation...(for the 18z tafs through 18z Friday afternoon) 
issued at 127 PM EDT Thursday Apr 28 2016 

VFR conditions will persist through the taf period with scattered to 
broken middle-high clouds and NE winds generally under 12 kts. Gusts 
of 15 to 20 kts are possible this afternoon. 

Marine...(for the 4 am Lake Superior forecast issuance) 
issued at 345 am EDT Thursday Apr 28 2016 

Lake Superior will remain situated between hi pressure near Hudson Bay 
and a pair of low pressure systems drifting east through the Ohio River valley/ 
far southern Great Lakes through this weekend. This pressure pattern favors 
continued NE winds under 20 kts for most of Lake Superior. The best 
chance for stronger east-northeast winds up to 25 kts will be over the Western 
Lake...where terrain influences will funnel and accentuate the NE and perhaps Sat when the pressure gradient will be 
sharpest. As a hi pressure ridge drifts over the upper lakes Sun 
night...winds should become light. West-southwest winds up to 20 kts will 
prevail early next week as this ridge axis shifts to the S ahead of 
a cold front dropping through Ontario.
