Update
No changes from the mid evening update. The new guidance rolling
in still largely supports the current forecast.

Aviation(06z tafs)
The previous TAF discussion is still on track. Look forVFR
conditions through most of Monday morning with light east or
northeast winds. A complex of showers and thunderstorms will
roll west to east across the area... Beginning about 9 am Monday
west of madison, reaching madison in the late morning noon, then
milwaukee waukesha kenosha by around 18-20z Monday. Conditions
will then quickly lower to MVFR and even some ifr CIGS in the
afternoon due to the rain and increasing atmospheric moisture.

Dense fog should roll into the lake shore areas after 00z Tuesday.

Look for increasing easterly winds on Monday... Gradually veering
to the southeast toward Monday evening.

Prev discussion (issued 908 pm cdt Sun may 26 2019)
update...

the 00z runs of the hrrr and NAM still show a two pronged
evolution of the activity on Monday, though the separation between
events looks to be tightening up. The first wave is mainly due to
the leading deep warm and moist air advection. The first wave is
slowing down and may not reach madison until late morning and the
far southeast in the early afternoon. It also may diurnally weaken
as it moves east. This allows the second round with better mid
level dynamics and potentially better instability to generate some
stronger storms for the afternoon into the early evening.

Overall, the current forecast still looks in good shape. The
changes are a bit subtle and subject to further variation. Will
let the overnight crew take it all in and make any meaningful
changes needed.

Marine...

no significant changes to the going forecast. Light winds will
continue over lake mi tonight via high pressure. Modest enely
winds will then develop for Monday afternoon and Tuesday as a warm
front stalls west to east across NRN il to far SRN lake mi to
lower mi. Waves will build to 2 to 3 feet over the nearshore
waters from sheboygan to winthrop harbor. Showers and
thunderstorms are expected over much of lake mi for Monday
afternoon and night.

Prev discussion... (issued 618 pm cdt Sun may 26 2019)
update...

quiet through the night. No change beyond tonight as previous
forecast has it handled well. The latest hrrr and NAM hold off
precip in madison until about 10-11 am and milwaukee until early
afternoon. You might be able to get that lawn mowed before the
rain arrives.

Aviation(00z tafs)...

look forVFR conditions through most of Monday morning with light
east or northeast winds. A complex of showers and thunderstorms
will then roll west to east across the area... Beginning about 9
am Monday west of madison, reaching milwaukee waukesha kenosha by
around 18z Sunday. Conditions will then quickly lower to MVFR and
even some ifr CIGS due to the rain and increasing atmospheric
moisture. Dense fog should roll into the lake shore areas after
00z Tuesday. Look for increasing easterly winds on
Monday... Gradually veering to the southeast toward Monday evening.

short term...

tonight and Monday... Forecast confidence is medium.

A pleasant afternoon and night is expected as a sfc ridge moves
across SRN wi and lake mi. A shortwave trough late tnt will move
across the central great plains and across SRN wi for mon
afternoon. Strong 850-700 mb warm, moist advection will begin
mon am mainly during the daylight hours and continue enewd into
the afternoon. At the sfc, a wave of low pressure will track along
the nwd moving warm front from ia to the wi il border. Models
including cams suggest a couple rounds of convection with the
second round stronger than the first as more elevated moisture and
cape will be available during the afternoon. Elevated CAPE of
1000 j kg and mdt effective shear will be enough for a marginal
threat of svr storms. One half to an inch of rainfall is forecast
for mon-mon eve which may be enough to cause minor river flooding
on rivers that are already experiencing above normal flows.

Long term...

Monday night... Forecast confidence medium.

The main area of showers and thunderstorms will be exiting to the
east during the evening. This is in response to mid level ridging
setting up and the low level flow weakens and becomes westerly.

Then a frontal boundary becomes stationary near the wi il state
line. Can't rule out a few showers or a thunderstorm overnight
with any shortwave activity moving through and some elevated
instability.

Tuesday... Forecast confidence medium.

There is a small chance for showers and thunderstorms during the day
with shortwave activity and instability which will likely be
elevated. The 12 models have the frontal boundary hovering around
the wi il state line. Where it ends up will play a big factor in
severe thunderstorm risk. At this time the track of the low doesn't
look to move far enough north to put us in the warm sector to get
surface based storms, but will have to keep an eye on it.

South of where this boundary sets up mu CAPE is 1300 plus with 40
knots of shear, supportive of severe thunderstorms. Storms are
expected to develop to our southwest during the evening and then
move through overnight. They will become increasingly elevated as
they move into our area but some strong to severe storms may be
able to hold together, mainly towards our southwest. North of the
boundary models vary quite a bit with the amount of elevated
instability but there is enough for a thunder mention through the
night.

Hydro is another concern with the repeated rounds of rain Monday
into Wednesday. The low level jet will bring another surge of
moisture Tuesday night with pws around 1.5 inches. Right now the
best moisture transport and heavy rain potential is to our south,
consistent with the placement of the front. Regardless
precipitation totals into Wednesday could be 1.5 to 2 inches, or
higher towards the southwest, which may lead to some flooding.

Wednesday and Thursday... Forecast confidence medium.

A wave of low pressure looks to move across southern wi on
Wednesday, continuing rain chances through at least the morning.

Then there could be a break, allowing for instability to build.

With the next low approaching the area the warm front could get
shifted north and will have to watch the far south for surface
based storms. Will have to keep on eye on this for a severe
threat.

The low will move through Wednesday night or Thursday bring
additional rain and thunderstorm chances into Thursday.

Friday through Sunday... Forecast confidence medium.

Friday looks dry then there is more uncertainty for the weekend. A
system could move through Saturday or Sunday.

Aviation(21z tafs)... Sct050 fair wx cumulus this afternoon well
away from lake mi. TheVFR conditions will continue tnt before
rounds of showers and tstorms move across SRN wi on mon. CIGS of
1-3 kft and areas of MVFR vsbys will accompany the showers and
storms, but very lows CIGS and vsbys would briefly occur in any
stronger storms or periods of heavy rainfall.

Marine... Light winds will continue over lake mi tonight via high
pressure. Modest enely winds will then develop for Monday
afternoon and Tuesday as a warm front stalls west to east across
nrn il to far SRN lake mi to lower mi. Waves will build to 2 to 3
feet over the nearshore waters from sheboygan to winthrop harbor.

Showers and thunderstorms are expected over much of lake mi for
Monday afternoon and night.
