- Dry tonight and cooler.

- Dry but cool this weekend with the opportunity for morning frost.

Issued at 329 PM EDT Wed Apr 17 2024

The severe weather risk has ended as thunderstorms along the cold front have moved east.

Temperatures have fallen into the low 60s and will remain there through the remainder of the day. Because wind is from the southwest or west, temperatures haven't crashed like a traditional cold front. Gusty wind subsides after sunset as the surface low exits the Great Lakes. Seasonably cooler tonight with lows in the upper 40s before warm air advection returns Thursday afternoon. This, as a low develops over Missouri and slides east through the day. The chance for showers and thunderstorms begins near sunset Thursday and ends by daybreak Friday. Locally, a marginal risk for severe storms is noted along our border with Indianapolis. Aloft, we'll be on the nose the 850mb jet and the warm front will linger in this area as well. Instability is forecast to be poor while bulk shear will be modest at around 30 knots. Therefore, not overly impressed but do confirm the marginal risk there.

Dry and cool this weekend, but not too horrible weather-wise. Cold mornings, however, as frost will be a concern both Saturday night and Sunday night. Confidence is medium-high in frost, with lows near 34 and light wind. This cool trough aloft moves east by Monday, allowing temperatures to warm back toward 60 degrees. A disturbance moves through the upper-Midwest Tuesday providing our next rain chance.

Issued at 119 PM EDT Wed Apr 17 2024

Thunderstorms, producing heavy rain, are approaching KFWA. The TSRA risk ends after this line clears.

Otherwise for the TAF period, MVFR stratus is noted upstream across Illinois. High confidence that this builds into KSBN over the next couple of hours. These probabilities are much lower at KFWA, so have retained VFR ceilings there. Wind gusts diminish this evening as the low, currently over Wisconsin, depart to the northeast.

MARINE...Small Craft Advisory until 5 AM EDT Thursday for LMZ043-046.
