Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Milwaukee/Sullivan WI 850 PM CDT Tue Mar 31 2020

UPDATE.

Temperatures continue to very slowly fall through the 30s this evening.

MARINE.

North winds will persist through tomorrow as high pressure starts to slowly move east of the area. Winds will then turn easterly and southeasterly Thursday and Friday. The easterly onshore component will result in somewhat higher waves across the nearshore waters, but should remain below advisory levels.

A front will pass through the lake Friday night, with winds becoming northerly again on Saturday.

PREV DISCUSSION. (Issued 639 PM CDT Tue Mar 31 2020)

AVIATION(00Z TAFS) .

Stratus will remain in place across the region through at least mid day tomorrow. Ceilings will generally be low end MVFR, with occasional IFR, especially early tomorrow morning near Lake Michigan. By tomorrow mid day to afternoon, we should see ceilings begin to lift and eventually try to scatter out, likely starting out west. The exact timing of this improvement is very uncertain, however.

Winds will remain light through the period, generally from the northeast.

PREV DISCUSSION . (Issued 356 PM CDT Tue Mar 31 2020)

SHORT TERM .

LATE THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT . Forecast Confidence - Medium.

Patchy light rain and drizzle showing signs of diminishing per latest KMKX/KGRB radars. However wl continue isold mention through the late aftn with a very small chance for flurries or sprinkles into the evening as weak upper short wave and lingering weak low level convergence further weakens across the southern Lake Michigan area. Seeing some thinning of the stratus across the lake, and this trend could continue into parts of east central and southeast WI this evening. However with diminishing low level winds and moist east to northeast flow, thinking clouds should return and fill back in overnight. Clouds will likely linger into Wednesday morning before thinning and possibly breaking up in the afternoon. However upstream warm air advection ahead of slowly advancing cold front in the plains will bring increasing mid-high level clouds back into the area Wednesday night. Wl hold off on introducing any showers to western CWA Wednesday night as warm air advection remains mostly to the west, and low level remains fairly dry.

LONG TERM .

Thursday through Tuesday . Forecast Confidence: Medium.

There is large scale meridional flow throughout the extended period, which has come into greater agreement with this model guidance. Southeasterly surface flow and mostly cloudy skies will prevail Wednesday night through Friday as a sfc trough and cold front slowly approaches from the Central Plains. Friday night into Saturday morning there will be a cold frontal passing through the northern Plains. Dry air and northerly sfc flow on the back side of the cold front will bring dry and pleasant conditions for Sunday. Rain chances and more clouds will return Monday as another shortwave trough and warm, moist advection begin again.

MKX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. WI . None. LM . None.

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.
