Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Milwaukee/Sullivan WI 240 AM CDT Sun Apr 21 2024


- Potential for patchy frost tonight, with more widespread frost/freeze concerns Tuesday and Wednesday nights.

- Elevated fire weather potential on Monday.

- Rain chances return Monday evening.

Issued 240 AM CDT Sun Apr 21 2024

Today through Monday:

Warmer temperatures are expected today with mostly sunny skies and continued breezy west to northwest winds. Deep mixing this afternoon will favor low dewpoints and relative humidities, but relatively moist fuels will limit fire weather concerns for today.

With winds turning southerly tonight and warm advection commencing, lows don't look to be as cold as the last few nights, with readings closer to the mid 30s. This should mitigate the freeze risk, but at least some patchy frost is possible given the light winds. Will continue to evaluate the potential for a Frost Advisory for portions of the area through the day today.

Gusty southwest winds are expected for Monday, which will help boost temperatures into the mid and perhaps upper 60s. Moisture will be a bit slow to return to the area, which will allow RHs to fall into the 25-30 percent range. Combined with the winds this could result in elevated fire weather conditions in some areas.


Issued 240 AM CDT Sun Apr 21 2024

Monday night through Saturday:

Rain moves in Monday evening and night, ahead of an upper low dropping through the Dakotas. This low will open up and become more elongated on Tuesday. The first half of Tuesday may be largely dry before additional precipitation arrives with a cold front Tuesday evening. This looks to end by late evening, with temperatures then falling into the upper 20s to low 30s by Wednesday morning.

High pressure is expected to build into the area for Wednesday and Thursday. Temperatures on Wednesday will be a little below climo, before returning to average on Thursday. With the high overhead, another cold night with frost/freeze potential looks to be in store for Wednesday night/Thursday morning.

A warmer and more active pattern then looks to start taking shape by the end of the workweek and into next weekend, as a series of troughs dig through the Desert Southwest and Southern Plains. Along with warmer temperatures, this favors several chances for showers and thunderstorms for southern Wisconsin.


Issued 240 AM CDT Sun Apr 21 2024

VFR conditions and modest west to northwest winds are expected through the daytime hours today. Skies will remain clear with winds becoming light and variable this evening, before turning southerly late tonight. Gusty southwest winds are then expected for Monday.


Issued 240 AM CDT Sun Apr 21 2024

Relatively light winds are expected today and tonight as high pressure builds across the Lake. Breezy south winds will then develop Monday into Tuesday as low pressure approaches the northern Great Lakes from Saskatchewan and Manitoba. A Small Craft Advisory is likely for the nearshore waters, and winds could approach gale force during this time over the open waters.
Winds shift to northerly Tuesday night as the low passes eastward and a cold front moves down the lake. Northerly gales will be possible behind the front.
