Alex looks like it will exit our coverage region on a somewhat disorganized note, as strong mid to upper level
flow continues shearing the deeper CDO well off to the northeast, leaving a very poorly definable center. Low
and mid level clouds still wrap around what circulation center still exists. The pressure has came down some
from earlier perhaps due to some warm and moist low level feed of air off the Atlantic. Some additional
strengthening is possible as Alex leaves our region, and heads torward New England.
As for precipitation, much of the heavier defamation snows have ended for the region, however, some modest snow
is still possible across northern lower MI through the afternoon. Winds remain brisk, but should diminish as the
storm pulls away and decoupling occurs. Alex continues zipping along on a 067 degree or east-northeast jont, and
this motion should continue through the next 36-48 hour period.
This will be the final discussion issued in connection with this system. For additional information, please refer
to the latest WSW bulletins issued by the National Weather Service.
