Today and tonight... Forecast confidence is high.
Continued quiet this period. We'll see a mix of mid and high
clouds with low pressure passing well to the south of wisconsin.
A brisk northeast flow will keep it cold by lake michigan, warmer
west and south of madison.
Tuesday through Thursday... Forecast confidence is high
area under the influence of large area of high pressure across
southern hudson bay and angled into the western great lakes
Tuesday and Wednesday with cooler than normal temps. Surface high
over the area Thursday... Temps closer to seasonal average in the
lower to middle 40s. Dry through Thursday.
Friday through Sunday... Forecast confidence is low
an area of low pressure looks to start to develop across the front
range of the rockies Friday... Moving into the mid mississippi
valley by early Saturday. Models showing three different solutions.
Canadian has farthest north track... Better chances for snow north
of the area. Euro has southern wisconsin in the bullseye with
solid forcing that could produce significant amounts of snowfall
areawide. GFS further south of the euro and lesser impacts as the
better snowfall chances would be just to the south by 50-100|
miles. So... With all of that mentioned above... Precip type and
amounts are still to be determined by the storm track as the
energy that will kick this whole thing off is still way out in the
pacific. Temps will be likely below normal through the period... If
the euro solution hits temps could be well below average from the
end of the weekend into early next week with the fresh snowfall
and colder air rushing in behind the system. Much to watch this
Vfr conditions are expected through the TAF period. Winds will be
persistent out of the northeast, rather brisk gusty today,
diminishing tonight... Especially inland.
Increasing and persistent northeast winds will bring small craft
advisory conditions today through Tuesday night.
Another round of small craft advisory conditions are expected late
in the week with a strong low pressure system moving through the
region. Brisk east winds will produce large waves from late
Friday night into Saturday night.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
