Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Milwaukee/Sullivan WI 1138 PM CDT Mon Jul 13 2020

UPDATE.

Temperatures will continue to fall into the 60s overnight, with overnight lows in the low to mid 60s.

AVIATION(06Z TAFS).

Quiet conditions are expected overnight. South winds will become gusty on Tuesday morning, continuing through the afternoon. High clouds will move into the area as well, ahead of thunderstorm activity developing to our northwest. These storms may begin to move toward the Madison terminal Tuesday evening, but should remain west of the others until at least after 06Z.

PREV DISCUSSION. (Issued 849 PM CDT Mon Jul 13 2020)

MARINE .

High pressure will shift into Lower Michigan tonight, while a trough of low pressure begins to approach from the Central Plains. This will bring gusty south winds to the lake on Tuesday. A Small Craft Advisory may eventually be needed for areas north of Milwaukee Tuesday afternoon and evening, as waves approach 4 feet. Across the open waters, expect gusts up to about 25 knots.

Widespread thunderstorms are expected Tuesday night and through most of Wednesday, ahead of a slow moving cold front which will move through the lake on Wednesday night. High pressure will build into the region on Thursday.

PREV DISCUSSION . (Issued 327 PM CDT Mon Jul 13 2020)

SHORT TERM .

Tonight and Tuesday - Confidence . Medium to High

Mid level and surface ridging dominate tonight. Diurnally driven CU field will dissipate with the loss of heating. Lake breeze has brought corridor of clear air westward from the lake. The surface and mid level ridging shifts eastward into Tuesday. We will see the southerly flow increase tapping into some higher moisture. With the mid level flow becoming more wsw some vorticity will be drawing closer to northwestern fringes of the area as the day wears on. The northeast/southwest lower level convergence zone is proggd to remain to the northwest of the area so some of the slower solutions on precip advancement have some merit.

LONG TERM .

Tuesday Night through Sunday Night . Forecast confidence is moderate to low.

A cold front will slowly sink southeastward Tuesday night. Storms in the west may be potentially severe, but will likely decrease in strength and coverage as they approach southern WI overnight. The front will slow, and then as a 500mb shortwave approaches from the west Wednesday morning, convection will likely perk up again for a second round during the afternoon on Wednesday. High pressure will then build in behind the system and dry conditions out for Thursday.

Friday into the weekend, a large-scale ridge should build in and allow for warmer temperatures. The GFS has consistently been holding off on higher temperatures (95+), but the ECMWF has been flip- flopping on temperatures, having them skyrocketing into the mid to upper 90s with one run and then trending back toward the GFS with the other. We'll continue to watch the heat potential for this upcoming weekend. One thing that is consistent is the possibility for intermittent t-storm activity for S WI as complexes form and ride the top of the ridge.

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.
