Chi Mac Weather Coverage – Accuweather Update

Trouble in the Weather Wheelhouse

Yesterday, the GFS was suggesting the front would move south of Chicago while the NMM-WRF kept it north. On last night’s runs, those roles reversed. At issue seems to be another low pressure area that will move into the central Great Lakes later in the weekend. The faster that system moves and the stronger it is, the less time the front will have to move south ahead of it. The storm itself could cause showers and thunderstorms over much of Lake Michigan Saturday night and Sunday. Obviously, this forecast situation remains challenging, and updates to the Chicago to Mackinac race weather story will address these issues. Please see ( more )
