100 PM EDT Sat Aug 19 2017

Issued at 1018 AM EDT Sat Aug 19 2017

High pressure will build into the area this afternoon and move 
slowly east over the rest of the weekend providing dry weather. As
the high moves east of our area early next week it will become 
very warm and humid with increasing chances of showers and 
thunderstorms. The best chance will arrive Tuesday as a strong 
cold front moves southeast across the area. High pressure will 
move slowly southeast across the Great Lakes behind this front, 
providing fair weather with below normal temperatures Wednesday 
through Friday. 


.SHORT TERM...(Today and Tonight)
Issued at 401 AM EDT Sat Aug 19 2017

Shrtwv movg east across IL with an attendant wk sfc reflection 
causing an area of showers and thunderstorms nrn IN which should 
continue to move east across nw OH this morning.  Skies should clear 
behind this feature as subsidence/ridging build in allowing temps to 
mix out to highs in the lwr 80s, except a little cooler near Lake MI 
with onshore flow through the day. Decent radiational cooling 
expected tonight with clear skies early and high pressure overhead 
providing calm-light s-se winds as it moves east overnight. 
Patchy clouds may develop from the w-sw as wk waa begins in wake 
of departing high. Expect lows will be in the upr 50s to lwr 60s. 
Patchy fog psbl overnight, but confidence on impactful vsby 
restrictions too low to add mention to fcst attm.


.LONG TERM...(Sunday through Friday)
Issued at 401 AM EDT Sat Aug 19 2017

Sfc high will continue to move east away from our area Sunday as a 
cdfnt drops into the upr Midwest. Moderately increased southerly 
low level flow/waa combined with building sern U.S. ridging aloft
should result in mostly sunny skies with temps rising into the 
m-u80s in the aftn. Frontal boundary will remain nearly stnry over
the upr Midwest Monday as initial shrtwv moves east across srn 
Ontario and stronger upr level trof drops se across Manitoba. This
should result in a mainly dry day with temps continuing to warm 
slightly as wk waa and s-sw gradient flow conts. Contd with a 
slight chc of tstms n-nw as airmass will likely destabilize and 
possibility of convectively induced disturbance movg east in zonal
flow from the plains/mid ms valley. Rain chances increase Monday 
night and Tue as strong upr level trof and associated sfc cdfnt 
drop se across the grtlks. Wind flow associated with this feature will
be quite strong and moisture abundant, so unless cloud cover/convective
outflows limit destabilization on Tue (which is a possibility), 
storms along the front could become svr. Sfc high pressure 
expected to move slowly e-se across the grtlks on backside of 
amplified upr trof late week, providing fair wx across our area 
with blo normal temps. 


.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Sunday Afternoon)
Issued at 100 PM EDT Sat Aug 19 2017

VFR conditions this period as sfc ridge drifts east across the 
terminals. While some penchant for MVFR based restriction in br may 
exist late tonight within sfc ridge axis will omit at this time 
given early morning rainfall missed the terminals entirely.
