Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Milwaukee/Sullivan WI 916 PM CDT Fri Jul 10 2020

UPDATE.

Mostly clear skies tonight will allow temperatures to fall a couple more degrees than last night with values in the lower 60s. Still no clear picture on whether we'll see a few showers in the west close to sunrise. Current radar trends indicate a decreasing trend in convection out over SD/ND and early trends from the 00z guidance that are coming would point to lower chances. So, will adjust pops downward for the early morning based on those ideas.

MARINE.

Winds gradually decrease through the night but stay out of the N/NW. Lighter winds are forecast for Saturday before increasing again on Sunday as a front sweeps through. Current forecast is on track.

PREV DISCUSSION. (Issued 622 PM CDT Fri Jul 10 2020)

UPDATE .

No changes are needed at this time as the current forecast is on track.

AVIATION(00Z TAFS) .

VFR conditions will persist through the night under a slight NW breeze. Wind speeds should fall below 10kts tonight A system moving out of the Dakotas into IA/IL on Saturday could spark thunderstorms across the western portions of the area in the afternoon and evening hours. There is some uncertainty in just how far east these will make it, so have left out thunder from the TAFs for many of our eastern sites. Some guidance does suggest a few spotty showers early Saturday morning but there is low confidence in these occurring.

PREV DISCUSSION . (Issued 342 PM CDT Fri Jul 10 2020)

SHORT TERM .

Tonight through Saturday night . Forecast Confidence is medium to high:

Quiet weather is expected tonight as high pressure slides by to the south. A shortwave is then progged to come through on Saturday, bringing a chance for showers and storms. Could see a weakening area of showers/storms slide in to the west early Saturday morning. Should be enough time for heating and instability to recover before the main forcing with the wave comes through later in the day. Best chance for storms will be later afternoon into the evening along and south of line from Lone Rock to Milwaukee. Lapse rates, instability, and shear suggest a few strong to severe storms will be possible . with hail and wind the main threats. Should see near normal high temps tomorrow.

Any lingering showers/storms should wind down in the southeast by or shortly after midnight Sat night. Clouds should decrease overnight as well as high pressure begins to build in from the west.

LONG TERM .

Sunday through Friday Morning . Forecast Confidence is moderate .

As the day progresses on Sunday, the exit of a shortwave trough will provide DNVA over the western Great Lakes region. This, combined with a building ridge from the west should drive subsidence and lead to a mostly sunny to partly cloudy day. Winds will be out of the north which will push higher dewpoints out of the area and keep temperatures mild. Ridging and northerly winds will continue into Monday keeping us dry during the daytime hours.

As we go into Monday night, winds will become increasingly southerly and higher dewpoints and deeper moisture will return for the day on Tuesday ahead of an approaching cold front. Precipitation along the front is possible Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, but areal coverage is in question as this front sinks southward. Until some higher certainty arises, chance PoPs have been continued.

Behind the front, an area of higher pressure is progged to build in for Wednesday night and Thursday, but a moist air mass is likely to remain place. This could lead to a few pop-up showers and storms during the daytime on Thursday, similar to what we saw last weak.

Overall this coming week will be cooler than what we saw last week, but there are some hints that heat could return at the end of the extended period with the ECMWF bringing in a broad ridge that would drive temperatures to 90+ by Saturday. Unfortunately, uncertainty is high regarding this scenario, as GFS and Canadian solutions flatten out this ridge in favor of a rainier and cooler pattern for next weekend. Something we'll have to keep an eye on as the days march forward.

AVIATION(21Z TAFS) .

VFR conditions are expected for the remainder of the day into Saturday.

A weakening area of showers and storms may affect areas from around Madison westward early Saturday morning. There will then be a better chance for storms in the afternoon and evening. The best chance for these storms will be along and south of a line from Lone Rock To Madison to Milwaukee.

MARINE .

Low pressure over lower Michigan will continue eastward tonight, deepening a bit by the time it reaches Lake Erie early Saturday morning. Breezy northwest winds will continue on the back side of the departing low into tonight. A Small Craft Advisory remains in effect until 7 pm CDT.

Another low will drop southward across Lake Michigan later Saturday. Winds will be lighter for a time as the low moves overhead tomorrow, with increasing northerly winds behind the low Saturday night into Sunday.
