Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Milwaukee/Sullivan WI 1017 AM CST Sat Nov 28 2020

UPDATE. (Issued 944 AM CST Sat Nov 28 2020)

Looking clear and pleasant today as the surface high skirts to our south with high temps in the 50s. Then a cold front is expected to push through the region Sunday late morning/afternoon as a low passes to our north. Given the dry low-levels, not expecting much if anything in the way of precip with it. Otherwise, breezy, colder, and mostly dry conditions are expected through the first half of next week across southern WI as we sit on the backside of a potent storm system, which is progged to work its way into and linger over the Northeast region beginning Monday. The current forecast remains on track with no major changes.

Wagner

SHORT TERM. (Issued 345 AM CST Sat Nov 28 2020)

Today through Sunday:

Quiet conditions over the next couple days with no precipitation expected as we will have large scale upper level ridging through much of the day Sunday with a mostly dry column through at least early Sunday. Thus expect mostly clear skies today into Sunday with some moisture pushing into the region Sunday in association with the surface front pushing through from a low pressure system moving across the northern Great Lakes. The increased moisture should allow for some clouds but still we expect conditions to remain dry.

Otherwise given broad high pressure to the south and broad low pressure to the north winds from the southwest will be breezy from the southwest which should allow for temperatures to over-perform some with highs expected to reach the low 50s. With the front coming through Sunday morning a slightly cooler air mass and breezy northwest winds will bring slightly cooler temperatures with highs only expected to reach the mid 40s.

Kuroski

LONG TERM. (Issued 345 AM CST Sat Nov 28 2020)

Sunday night through Friday:

Brisk nwly winds and cold advection will prevail Sun nt-Mon AM in the wake of a cold front. The associated digging upper trough will slow over the wrn Great Lakes and wrn Ohio River Valley as cyclogenesis ensues from the lower MS River Valley to the lower Great Lakes for Sun-Mon. The low will occlude and slowly fill as it moves nwd along the Ontario/Quebec border toward the middle of the week. Any precipitation and LES is expected to remain over Lake MI and ewd for this system.

Another large upper low will drop swd through the Great Plains from Canada for Fri-Sat, but it looks dry at this time for srn WI. Temps will return to near seasonal normals for the week with lessening winds Mon nt-Tue.

Gehring

AVIATION. (Issued 944 AM CST Sat Nov 28 2020)

VFR conditions under mostly clear skies will prevail today and tonight with breezy southwesterly winds developing this afternoon. Some lower ceilings are expected to work into WI tomorrow late morning/afternoon as a cold front pushes through the area, but expecting it to be mostly dry. Then breezy northwesterly winds will develop behind the cold frontal passage.

Wagner

MARINE. (Issued 345 AM CST Sat Nov 28 2020)

High pressure continues to move into Kentucky today with southwest winds becoming breezy due to low pressure across Canada, lingering into Sunday.

Low pressure will move from far northern Minnesota to east of Lake Superior tonight and Sunday. The low will bring a strong cold front across Lake Michigan by late Sunday afternoon. Gusty northwest winds are then expected behind the front Sunday night, with strong north winds Monday into Monday night becoming northwest on Tuesday. Gales are looking more likely for Monday into Monday night, along with high waves over the southern portions of the lake. Thus a Gale Watch has been issued for the open waters from 6z Monday to 6z Tuesday.

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.
