Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Milwaukee/Sullivan WI 635 PM CDT Wed Aug 5 2020

UPDATE.

A broad 500 mb shortwave trough will shift east southeast through the area tonight into Thursday morning. This feature should continue to bring scattered to broken clouds during this time. There could still be some breaks in the clouds here and there. Moisture is rather shallow on forecast soundings, as well as any instability, so a few sprinkles at best would occur during this period. Lows should remain in the middle 50s tonight, with the clouds lingering.

AVIATION(00Z TAFS).

Scattered to broken clouds with bases of 6000 to 9000 feet AGL are expected to linger tonight into Thursday morning across the area. Winds will become light and variable as well. Some breaks in the clouds may occur at times. More diurnal scattered to broken cumulus clouds are expected by Thursday afternoon. A southeast lake breeze should occur by middle to late morning Thursday, lingering in the afternoon. Light south winds are expected inland.

PREV DISCUSSION. (Issued 329 PM CDT Wed Aug 5 2020)

SHORT TERM .

Tonight through Friday . Forecast confidence is high.

The lake breeze is finally beginning to move inland from Milwaukee and south, while already moving into Washington County to the north. Plenty of high based cumulus today and cannot rule out a sprinkle for the remainder of the afternoon.

A shortwave trough over the ern Dakotas and srn MN will then track across nrn IL and far srn WI late tnt-Thu AM bringing periods of broken cloud cover. The forecast soundings suggest not enough saturation or instability will occur for pcpn in srn WI. Less cloud cover is expected on Fri as upper ridging takes hold. Pleasant temps will continue with high temps back into the lower 80s for Fri.

LONG TERM . Saturday through Wednesday . Forecast confidence medium.

A sly flow and warm, moist advection will prevail for the weekend into early next week. Very warm and humid conditions are expected. The models differ on the arrival of a weak cool front either for late Monday or Tuesday. The warm, moist advection, weak vorticity maximums in the flow, and the cool front will bring chances for showers and storms during this period. High pressure may be able to slide just enough south into WI for a dry Wed.

AVIATION(21Z TAFS) . Sct-bkn070-090 cumulus this afternoon becoming few-sct for tnt and Thu AM. More sct-bkn050-070 cumulus for late Thu AM into the afternoon.

MARINE . High pressure around 30.2 inches extending from southern IL to Ohio will move Lower MI into the Lower Great Lakes through Saturday. Light to modest south winds will prevail but become breezier on Saturday.

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

Update . Wood Tonight/Thursday and Aviation/Marine . Gehring Thursday Night through Wednesday . Gehring

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.
