What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Waves are provided as a range of significant wave heights, which is the average of the highest 1/3 of the wave, along with the average height of the highest 10% of the waves which will occasionally be encountered. .SYNOPSIS...Lake Michigan remains between 30.1 inch high pressure over the mid-Atlantic coast and a 29.7 inch trough extending from Lake Superior into the Central Plains. The trough will shift south across Lake Michigan Monday morning through Monday evening, then stall across central Illinois and Indiana Tuesday through Thursday while weakening to 29.9 inches. During this time, a 30.1 inch ridge will extend from the far northern Great Plains to southeast Ontario. A 29.7 inch low will form over the Plains Thursday and reach the lake late this week.

Update
Widespread showers and storms currently across northern and
central wisconsin will continue to push south as they diminish and
decrease in coverage through the early morning hours. By mid
morning, storms should be quite scattered. Isolated to scattered storms
are expected into the early afternoon as instability gradually
builds back in through the day. Thanks to that instability, storms
will likely reintensify and expand in coverage by mid afternoon.

A few severe storms may be possible into the early evening hours.

Aviation(06z tafs)
Widespread showers and storms currently across northern and
central wisconsin will continue to push south as they diminish and
decrease in coverage through the early morning hours. By around
12z, showers and storms may begin to reach the TAF sites, but i
expect them to be quite scattered at that point and I don't have
particularly high confidence that they will actually impact and
taf sites.

Isolated to scattered storms are expected into the early
afternoon as instability gradually builds back in through the
day. Thanks to that instability, storms will likely reintensify
and expand in coverage by mid afternoon. A few severe storms may
be possible into the early evening hours. Storms should move out
tomorrow evening, and meso models continue to indicate MVFR to ifr
cigs behind the storms. I'm not terribly confident in that
solution, so i've chosen to only include scattered 2.5 kft clouds
int the tafs tomorrow evening.

Prev discussion (issued 914 pm cdt Sun jun 17 2018)
update...

isolated convection has developed near the eastern mn ia state
line and is pushing to the ene. Previous forecasts did not have
convective development this far south this early, and so i've
adjusted pops up somewhat in our far west. With 0-6 km shear
around 25kts, severe weather doesn't seem likely. However, mucape
values are around 2000, so I can't rule out some of these storms
pulsing up and dropping 1" hail or strong winds.

I still don't expect the widespread storms move into the cwa
until after midnight as the surface front nears southern
wisconsin. Fortunately, storm intensity should dwindle as these
storms move into the cwa, so severe weather seems especially
unlikely as the more widespread precipitation moves into the cwa.

Marine...

a cold front will sweep across southern lake michigan on Monday
afternoon, swinging winds around to the north and gusting up to 20
kts. Thunderstorms will move in from the north prior to this
frontal passage, beginning as isolated storms after midnight
tonight, becoming more widespread as the front moves into the
area.

Fog is possible due to high moisture over the relatively cool
lake through Monday afternoon.

Prev discussion... (issued 649 pm cdt Sun jun 17 2018)
update...

heat advisory will be allowed to expire at 7 pm. Otherwise going
forecast looks in good shape. Warm muggy evening with diminishing
winds after sunset. A few warm advection showers and thunderstorms
may brush NW portion of the CWA around midnight. Hrrr is more
aggressive in dropping outflow dominant MCS south into CWA after
midnight but rap is not as progressive and keeps most of the
activity north. We will keep an eye on trends this evening.

Aviation(00z tafs)...

vfr forecast with S SW flow through the night. Outside chance for
a shower or storm at msn either side of 06z. Thunderstorms will
develop along a cold front by Monday afternoon with greatest
coverage during the late afternoon into early evening. Flow
becomes NE behind the boundary and there is the threat for lower
cigs vsbys tomorrow evening as the flow comes off lake michigan.

Prev discussion... (issued 402 pm cdt Sun jun 17 2018)
short term...

this afternoon... Forecast confidence is medium.

Two separate lines of thunderstorms developed across northern
illinois this afternoon. These are along areas of weak low level
convergence and possibly some differential heating due to high
clouds. The line that is closest to rockford may expand into
southeast wi in the next hour. These are pulse storms with rain
hitting the same area for a period of time, so expect some heavy
rain. Not expecting severe wind or hail, but a few gusts and pea
size hail are not out of the question.

Tonight... Forecast confidence is medium.

The storms along a cold front over NW wi will slide southeast into
central and northeast wi overnight. Showers and a few storms are
possible from sauk to sheboygan counties late tonight into Monday
morning as the line weakens.

Monday and Monday night... Forecast confidence is medium.

The front will continue to slide south through southern wi on
Monday. This will be marked by a wind shift to the north.

Thunderstorms will likely re-develop along the front by noon,
probably around the i-94 corridor. This line will slowly drift
south through the afternoon. The slow movement and high
precipitable water content is conducive for heavy rain. Strong
instability with CAPE of around 2000 j kg and modest bulk shear of
20 to 30 kt will give us a chance for a couple severe storms
during the afternoon hours.

The stronger storms will continue south with the front during the
evening. The cold pool rain shield will keep us with showers and
thunderstorm chances through much of the night since the front is
expected to stall over northern il ia.

Temperatures will be back up around 90 in far southern wi, with
heat indices in the mid to upper 90s. That's not quite high enough
for a heat advisory at this time.

Long term...

Tuesday through Thursday... Forecast confidence is medium.

Models are picking up on a possible thunderstorm complex
developing over southern mn Monday night and tracking through
southern wi Tue morning as it weakens. The 850mb baroclinic zone
will remain over southern wi through Wednesday so there is a
chance for storms until that slides south of the area. High
pressure will clear us out of thunderstorm chances for Wed nt and
thu.

High temperatures will be in the mid to upper 70s.

Friday through Sunday... Forecast confidence is medium.

Our next chance for showers and storms will arrive Thursday
night Friday morning as a closed mid level low and associated
surface low will slide from the midwest through the great lakes
through Saturday. Chances for showers and some storms will
continue through Sunday.

Aviation(18z tafs)...

a line of thunderstorms that is near rockford this afternoon may
expand northeast into southeast wi late this afternoon. Heavy rain
and pea size hail are possible.

Thunderstorms over northwest wi along a cold front will slowly
slide southeast overnight. The weakening line may reach dells and
fond du lac sheboygan areas early Monday morning. After a lull in
precip activity, stronger storms should develop along the cold
front near south of i-94 by around noon. These will gradually
slide south of the il border Mon evening. Heavy rain is expected.

Severe storms are possible with large hail and damaging wind.

Marine...

gusty southerly winds near the shoreline may reach 23 knots this
afternoon. Gusts will be lower toward the open lake.

Fog is possible due to high moisture over the relatively cool
lake through Monday afternoon.

Hydrology...

there is the potential for heavy rainfall Monday afternoon and
evening. Precipitable water values are at or over 2 inches, which
is very high compared to climatology. The cold front should move
progressively southward during this period, which may preclude
widespread heavy rainfall and training convection. However, any
storms could still produce heavy rainfall with the high moisture
content in the air. Wpc has most of the area in a slight risk for
excessive rainfall for Monday afternoon evening. Will issue a
hydrologic outlook to highlight the heavy rainfall potential for
Monday afternoon and evening.
