Discussion
Tonight through Friday night... Forecast confidence is high.

Our dry and mild pattern will continue through the work week.

Wednesday will be very similar to today, plenty of sunshine, but
with more gusty wind. A weak dry cold front will drift across
wisconsin Wednesday night, dropping highs on Thursday about 3 to 4
degrees from the previous day. Warmer temperatures push right
back in on Friday with highs in the lower to mid 70s.

Saturday and Sunday... Forecast confidence is high.

A cold front with better moisture and dynamics will push through
the area mainly Saturday night into Sunday morning. That should be
the period for the best chance of rain. Some guidance is spitting
out some light, pre-frontal showers on Saturday, but again, the
bulk of any rainfall will come Saturday night into Sunday morning.

Temps will remain warm, in the 70s, ahead of the front on
Saturday, dropping back into the 60s behind the front on Sunday.

Monday and Tuesday... Forecast confidence is medium.

We start to see a deeper mid level cyclonic flow develop across
the upper midwest and great lakes early next week, keeping small
chances of showers in the forecast, along with highs falling back
into the 50s.

Aviation(21z tafs)
Vfr conditions will continue through the TAF period with clear to
scattered high clouds. Southwest surface winds will fall off
early this evening, but remain elevated above the boundary layer.

This will result in low level wind shear concerns through the
overnight hours. The wind shear threat will diminish once we mix
out by mid morning on Wednesday. Expect gusty southwest winds on
Wednesday.

Marine
The current small craft advisory for areas south of milwaukee will
remain in effect until evening. A new small craft advisory will go
into effect at 8 am on Wednesday and continue through Wednesday
night due to strong and gusty southwest winds. The highest waves
will be out toward open water and over our northern marine areas,
like sheboygan.

Mkx watches warnings advisories
Wi... None.

Lm... Small craft advisory until 7 pm cdt this evening for lmz645-646.

Small craft advisory from 8 am Wednesday to 4 am cdt Thursday
for lmz643>646.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
