forecast discussion for routine afternoon forecast issuance

Short term Tonight and Sunday
issued at 210 pm cst Sat dec 15 2018
the latest rap analysis and satellite radar imagery show high
pressure stretching from texas to the great lakes early this
afternoon. Outside of some thin wispy cirrus dropping in from the
north, skies are mostly clear across the region thanks to ample
dry air at the surface and aloft. Looking to the west, a moisture
starved cold front is moving east across the northwest plains.

With only mid and high clouds along the front, forecast concerns
mainly revolve around temps and fog potential.

Tonight... High pressure will continue to hang across the area
during the evening before shifting to the east overnight. A narrow
band of mid and high clouds will move from west to east overnight
along the front, but progged soundings indicate a dry atmosphere
below 15 kft. However, the pressure gradient will tighten along
the front, which should prevent temps from tanking and fog from
forming over central and north-central wi. Winds will be lighter
over eastern wi so could see some patchy fog develop there. No
significant changes to temps.

Sunday... The weak cold front will exit eastern wi by midday taking
most of the cloud cover with it. Some cirrus will likely still be
present overhead though should not impact temps much. Temps will
not be much colder behind the front, but should see highs fall
back a few degrees. Highs should range from the mid 30s to near
40.

Long term Sunday night through Saturday
issued at 210 pm cst Sat dec 15 2018
the canadian low pressure trough to the north of wisconsin will
sweep east of the great lakes region on Monday and make way for a
high pressure ridge. The upper air pattern is shaping up to be
rather amplified and progressive during the first half of the week
though, and a low pressure trough will rapidly sharpen over the
plains states by Thursday, prompting the development of a surface-
based low pressure system over the lower mississippi valley. This
low will draw gulf of mexico moisture north and produce a decent
chance for mixed precipitation in northeast wisconsin late
Wednesday through late Thursday.

Aviation For 18z TAF issuance
issued at 1028 am cst Sat dec 15 2018
relatively quiet weather through the TAF period. A dry cold front
will move across the area tonight. Increasing south winds aloft
will lead to llws developing from late evening through overnight,
mainly over north-central wi. The strengthening pressure gradient
should prevent fog from becoming an issue, but continued MVFR
vsbys over the eastern wi TAF sites where winds will be lighter.

Grb watches warnings advisories
None.

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.
