Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Milwaukee/Sullivan WI 1150 PM CDT Sun Mar 29 2020

UPDATE.

Showers and drizzle continuing to wind down as expected. Beginning to see some breaks in the clouds in the southwest as well. In all, the forecast remains on track for the overnight hours.

AVIATION(06Z TAFS).

Showers/drizzle will wind down early tonight, with ceilings improving in the west overnight into Monday morning. MVFR ceilings may stick around into at least Monday afternoon in the east closer to the departing system . possibly lingering into Monday night.

PREV DISCUSSION. (Issued 927 PM CDT Sun Mar 29 2020)

UPDATE .

The forecast remains on track for tonight.

MARINE .

Low pressure over northern Lake Huron this evening will head southeast, reaching Lake Ontario by Monday evening. Winds will ease overall tonight into Monday as high pressure begins to build in behind the departing low, though gusts could approach gale force for a time in the north Monday.

The Gale Warning expiration of 10 pm looks reasonable based on latest observations. Will need a Small Craft Advisory for the nearshore waters once the Gale Warning expires. This will likely go through Monday morning.

Quiet weather is then expected through at least mid-week under high pressure.

PREV DISCUSSION . (Issued 640 PM CDT Sun Mar 29 2020)

UPDATE .

On and off showers and drizzle will continue through the evening hours, winding down after midnight as the low moves on to the east. Winds will gradually ease overnight, with mostly cloudy skies persisting.

AVIATION(00Z TAFS) .

Mainly MVFR ceilings along with occasional showers and drizzle will continue through the evening. The precip will wind down early tonight, with ceilings improving in the west by around daybreak Sunday. MVFR ceilings may stick around into Sunday afternoon in the east closer to the departing system.

PREV DISCUSSION . (Issued 219 PM CDT Sun Mar 29 2020)

SHORT TERM .

Forecast Period . Forecast Confidence is High .

Blustery conditions will persist into the evening hours as low pressure exits stage northeast this evening. Expect a gradual decline in wind speeds and gusts as the wind direction shifts to the northwest. Best chance for showers will be closer to Fond du Lac and Sheboygan areas this afternoon. One last vort lobe enters from the northwest this evening, but with the loss insolation and the low departing quickly to the northeast should dissipate rather quickly this evening. Cloudy skies, a northwest breeze and temperatures falling into the 30s are expected for tonight.

Monday will be a tale of clearing versus clouds. Latest guidance is keeping low level moisture longer over the eastern third of the area (roughly from Fond du Lac to Lake Geneva and points east). With cyclonic flow remaining in place through at least midday, it's tough to argue against clouds lingering longer. As a result, the forecast is a little pessimistic over the eastern third of the area, where daytime temperatures may suffer a bit only reach the upper 40s. Where clearing occurs, low/mid 50s are expected.

LONG TERM .

Monday Night through Sunday . Forecast Confidence: low to medium .

The extended forecast is dominated by a meridional flow pattern. This flow pattern is making evolution and timing differences of the overall jet stream pattern. High pressure moves in Tuesday bringing a brief period of dry weather to southern Wisconsin. By late Wednesday, there is a constant stream of shortwave troughs moving through the flow aloft. This will bring a few low pressure systems and frontal boundaries through the northern plains starting late Wednesday through Saturday. Low PoPs are carried throughout much of this time period to account for uncertainty with shortwave tracks and timing of these systems as they move through the northern plains. The strongest signals for precipitation during this period comes from the passage of a cold front by the end of the week.

AVIATION(18Z TAFS) .

No changes from previous discussion.

MVFR conditions will be the rule, with the main culprit being a stratus deck that will be hard to shake over the next 24 hours. Occasional bouts of showers will continue through the day, though visibility restrictions will be a bit tougher to come by as the better rainfall rates look to focus on areas further to the north, closer to the departing area of low pressure. Southwest winds will remain gusty, with MKE/ENW in line for the higher gusts (just shy of 40kt) this afternoon. Winds will only gradually decrease with time this evening as directions shift to more of a westerly direction, then northwesterly later tonight into Monday.

Biggest challenge forecast wise Monday is how long stratus lingers. At this point, am a bit more pessimistic for UES/MKE/ENW Monday as low level moisture within cyclonic low level flow should keep stratus in place, though bases should gradually rise to VFR during the afternoon.

MARINE .

Southwest gales are expected over the southern half of the lake through the mid evening hours as low pressure of 29.2 inches moves from central WI to the upper peninsula of Michigan. Waves between 10 and 12 feet are expected, lowering to between 6 and 8 feet later this evening and overnight. Winds will shift from southwest this afternoon to west this evening and then northwest overnight tonight. Gales should subside over the south half of the lake by early/mid evening, though will need to monitor the north half of the lake late this evening into early Monday as latest forecast gusts approach 35kt. The Gale Warning for the near shore will need to be followed up with a Small Craft Advisory by 7 PM as wind gusts to around 25 kt will be frequent through the overnight hours.

Heading into later Monday and Monday night, expect a gradual decline in wind speeds as high pressure of 30.2 inches moves into the area.

MKX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. WI . None. LM . Small Craft Advisory until 1 PM CDT Monday for LMZ643>646.
