Short term
Tonight and Monday... Forecast confidence is high:
high pressure to the east will pull away tonight into Monday as a
weak trough approaches. Southerly low level flow between the
approaching trough and departing high will keep an unseasonably
warm airmass in the area. Temperatures tonight and tomorrow will
be fairly similar to the last 24 hours. The main difference will
be in increase in moisture which will produce more clouds. Thus
decided to go with high temps tomorrow just a little lower than
today.

Seems like enough moisture instability for a couple
showers storms in the west by tomorrow evening, so left some low
precip chances in there.

Monday night and Tuesday... Forecast confidence... High
a lead upper shortwave moves into the upper mississippi valley
region Tuesday evening, with the upper jet across eastern
minnesota and northwest wisconsin. Upper level divergence is
neutral or weak across southern wisconsin, but 700 mb upward
motion increases Tuesday afternoon south central sections. 700 850
mb rh increases south central. Surface based CAPE west and
northwest of madison rises to 1500 joules kg, but only around 500
joules kg of zero to 1 km mixed layer cape. With the marginal
forcing and shallow layer of moisture around 800 mb, will keep
shower and thunderstorm chances in the low to medium range.

The surface cold front does make it through south central
wisconsin Tuesday afternoon.

Long term
Tuesday night and Wednesday... Forecast confidence... High
the lead upper shortwave moves to the north of lake superior,
with the upper jet across wisconsin. Moderate upper level
divergence overnight, lingering far southeast Wednesday morning.

Moderate 700 mb upward motion southeast Tuesday evening, then
downward motion spreading in from the west. Little in the way of
zero to 1 km mixed layer cape. Soundings do show moistening over
the atmospheric column. With the marginal forcing lifting
northeast, will keep shower chances in the low to medium range.

The surface cold front makes it through southeast wisconsin
Tuesday evening. Strong drying occurs Wednesday behind the cold
front.

Thursday through Sunday... Forecast confidence is medium
the upper trough re-establishes itself over the upper mississippi
valley Thursday, and over the great lakes Friday. Cooler air
(near normal) is expected, with some instability showers possible
with the upper trough, mainly Thursday night and Friday.

A large surface high moves across Saturday on the ecmwf, but is
quicker on the gfs.

Warm air advection begins on the GFS later Saturday, and on Sunday
on the slower ecmwf.

Aviation(18z tafs)
Vfr conditions are expected through Monday as southern wisconsin
sits under the western edge of high pressure. The only exception
could be a little river valley fog later tonight into early mon
morning. Few-sct diurnal cumulus are likely this afternoon and
again Monday afternoon. Could see an isolated shower storm in the
west by tomorrow evening.

Marine
Light winds and low waves are expected for the first couple days
of this week.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
