GREAT LAKES ICE OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE CLEVELAND OHIO
545 PM EDT MON MAR 30 2015

ACTIVE WATCHES...WARNINGS...AND ADVISORIES ON THE GREAT LAKES CAN
BE FOUND AT...HTTP://WWW.CRH.NOAA.GOV/GREATLAKES/?C=HAZ&L=GL&P=A

5 DAY ICE DISCUSSION...
A PROGRESSIVE PATTERN IS EMERGING WITH A SERIES OF SYSTEMS MOVING
ACROSS THE LAKES THIS WEEK.  FIRST...A CLIPPER SYSTEM WILL MOVE
ACROSS THE LOWER LAKES TUESDAY PRODUCING A QUICK BURST OF SNOW FOR
THE LOWER LAKES.  A LARGE AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL DROP OUT OF
CENTRAL CANADA TUESDAY NIGHT...AND MOVE SOUTHEAST ACROSS THE
LAKES...MOVING OFF THE SOUTHEAST COAST THURSDAY.  THIS WILL ALLOW A
LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM TO MOVE ACROSS JAMES BAY THURSDAY NIGHT DRAGGING
A STRONG COLD FRONT ACROSS ALL THE LAKES.  THE FRONT WILL STALL AND
ANOTHER CLIPPER SYSTEM WILL MOVE ALONG THE FRONT ACROSS THE EASTERN
LAKES FRIDAY NIGHT.  ANOTHER LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL MOVE ACROSS
THE NORTHERN LAKES SATURDAY...DRAGGING YET ANOTHER COLD FRONT ACROSS
THE LAKES.

MAINLY LIGHT AND VARIABLE WINDS ACROSS THE WESTERN LAKES TONIGHT AND
TUESDAY...WILL GIVE WAY TO SOUTH WINDS AT 15 TO 25 KNOTS AHEAD OF
THE NEXT MAJOR COLD FRONT.  THIS WILL LIKELY CAUSE SHIFTING OF ICE
FLOES ON LAKE SUPERIOR.  WINDS ACROSS THE LOWER AND CENTRAL LAKES
WILL TURN TO THE NORTH TO NORTHEAST AT 10 TO 15 KNOTS TUESDAY AS LOW
PRESSURE MOVES ACROSS THE LOWER LAKES.  THE WINDS WILL BECOME LIGHT
AND VARIABLE TUESDAY NIGHT AS THE LOW MOVES EAST OF THE AREA.

ICE DETERIORATION WILL CONTINUE ACROSS ALL THE LAKES THIS WEEK.
NEAR NORMAL TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED THROUGH MID WEEK. TEMPERATURES
WILL WARM TO ABOVE TO MUCH ABOVE NORMAL ON THURSDAY AS WE GET A
SURGE OF WARM AIR AHEAD OF NEXT STRONG COLD FRONT.  TEMPERATURES
WILL FALL BEHIND THE STRONG COLD FRONT THAT WILL MOVE ACROSS THE
LAKES THURSDAY NIGHT.   BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES WILL RETURN TO THE
LAKES BY  THE WEEKEND...WITH LOWS IN THE TEENS TO MID 20S ACROSS THE
NORTHERN LAKES SATURDAY MORNING.

THE NORTHERN LAKES SATURDAY...DRAGGING YET ANOTHER COLD FRONT ACROSS
THE LAKES.

MAINLY LIGHT AND VARIABLE WINDS ACROSS THE WESTERN LAKES TONIGHT AND
TUESDAY...WILL GIVE WAY TO SOUTH WINDS AT 15 TO 25 KNOTS AHEAD OF
THE NEXT MAJOR COLD FRONT.  THIS WILL LIKELY CAUSE SHIFTING OF ICE
FLOES ON LAKE SUPERIOR.  WINDS ACROSS THE LOWER AND CENTRAL LAKES
WILL TURN TO THE NORTH TO NORTHEAST AT 10 TO 15 KNOTS TUESDAY AS LOW
PRESSURE MOVES ACROSS THE LOWER LAKES.  THE WINDS WILL BECOME LIGHT
AND VARIABLE TUESDAY NIGHT AS THE LOW MOVES EAST OF THE AREA.

ICE DETERIORATION WILL CONTINUE ACROSS ALL THE LAKES THIS WEEK.
NEAR NORMAL TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED THROUGH MID WEEK. TEMPERATURES
WILL WARM TO ABOVE TO MUCH ABOVE NORMAL ON THURSDAY AS WE GET A
SURGE OF WARM AIR AHEAD OF NEXT STRONG COLD FRONT.  TEMPERATURES
WILL FALL BEHIND THE STRONG COLD FRONT THAT WILL MOVE ACROSS THE
LAKES THURSDAY NIGHT.   BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES WILL RETURN TO THE
LAKES BY  THE WEEKEND...WITH LOWS IN THE TEENS TO MID 20S ACROSS THE
NORTHERN LAKES SATURDAY MORNING.
