.SHORT TERM...
325 AM CDT

Through Friday...

We are right on the cusp of a considerable airmass change across
northeast Illinois and northwest Indiana this morning, sandwiched
between a much drier environment to our north and considerable
moisture to our south. A cold front is presently sneaking south of
the Wisconsin/Illinois state line, and upstream observations
indicate dewpoints are falling into the low to mid 50s with this
feature`s passage. This drying process will probably be held up a
little bit today by lake influences as some low 60s dewpoints spill
in on the northeasterly winds. A broad region of precipitation
continues immediately to our south, forced ahead of a shortwave
slicing into northwest Illinois with an assist from the right
entrance region of a 80 kt jet streak. The main moist axis
supporting this area of showers and thunderstorms currently pushing
into the I-72 corridor looks to just barely graze parts of Ford,
Iroquois, and Benton counties just before daybreak. As a result,
we`ll show a brief period of higher PoPs before chances quickly
diminish through the morning hours.

Think that the vast majority of our CWA will then remain dry today,
although have held onto a sliver of low (20%) PoPs across the far
southeast into the mid afternoon as the aforementioned cold front
will not totally clear until then. Can`t rule out a spit of rain
trying to develop with heating along the lake-enhanced push, but
we`ll be capping PoPs at 10% with no weather mention given the
anticipated very limited potential.

It also appears we`ll see a pretty decent push of northeasterly
winds down the lake later this morning and into the afternoon with
mixing. The ESRL HRRRx indicates notably stronger winds today
than the operational NCEP HRRR which is pretty intriguing. We can
only surmise that the warmer indicated lake and surface
temperatures in the HRRRx are altering the low-level static
stability profiles to support a gustier solution. Based on
upstream observations, it does look like the ESRL HRRRx is doing a
better job capturing ongoing wind trends, and we`ve followed it
more closely for winds across our nearshore waters as a result. A
persistent northeast wind of 15 to 20 kts with gusts to 25 kts or
so should result in steadily building wave action later this
afternoon and through tonight. As a result, we`ll be hosting a
Beach Hazards Statement for an increased risk of rip currents for
all of our Lake Michigan Beaches. At present we don`t think the
winds look quite strong enough to result in lakeshore flood
issues, but the high lake levels have recently resulted in
flooding in otherwise very marginal events. We`ll keep an eye on
observations and model trends today and tonight as a result, but
don`t have plans right now to hoist a Lakeshore Flood Advisory.

As morning clouds vacate the region from north to south through the
morning, it`s shaping up to be a pretty spectacular day here. High
temperatures will range from the mid to upper 70s inland, to the low
to mid 70s closer to the lake as dewpoints fall into the upper 50s
and lower 60s with mixing. A mostly clear sky tonight, combined with
the very dry airmass will set the stage for temperatures to drop
pretty quickly with the loss of heating. Have favored the cooler MOS
guidance for lows tonight, and wouldn`t be surprised to see perhaps
some near 50 degree readings in the coolest outlying sheltered
locations. Looks like we`ll continue the fine stretch of weather
into Friday to close out the week with highs ranging from the lower
70s near the lake into the mid and upper 70s inland.

.LONG TERM...
237 AM CDT

Friday night through Wednesday...

High pressure in place across the region at the start of the
period, with cooler and dry conditions expected. Under this setup,
will see a rather cool night with low temps Friday night expected
to fall to the low to mid 50s in spots. No real change through
the weekend with dry conditions to persist, as well as below
normal temps. By early next week, will see pattern begin to change
with a slight warming trend expected and with chances for precip
returning. This is especially the case Monday into Tuesday, as a
well defined trough digs through the central U.S. Attendant
surface trough/front will encounter returning moisture, with
showers and thunderstorms becoming more probable. Cool and dry
advection once again expected on the backside of this system
through midweek. Will see how long this sticks around as guidance
does vary with the large scale pattern during this time. The air
mass could rebound, but if not, it`s possible we stay in a
cooler/below normal pattern through the end of the work week.

.AVIATION...
For the 18Z TAFs...

There are no significant aviation concerns.

Main highlights over the next 24-30 hours:
* Northeast winds gusting to 15-20 kt at times through this
  afternoon at ORD, MDW and GYY. Sustained speeds 10-17 kt.
* Northeast winds 10-15 kt on Friday.

High pressure will influence the region through Friday, bringing
quiet weather conditions. With the high pressure centered north of
the Great Lakes today and over the northern Great Lakes on Friday,
expect steady northeast winds. There will be occasional gusts
through late this afternoon at ORD, MDW and GYY, with gusts likely
diminishing around sunset. Gusts may be less prevalent on Friday.
SCT to BKN lower VFR CIGs this afternoon inland of Lake Michigan
should be mostly FEW-SCT VFR on Friday.
