tonight through Sunday... Forecast confidence is high:
other than maybe a few afternoon sprinkles Thursday, high
pressure will keep it dry across southern wisconsin through the
remainder of the work week and into the weekend. There will
generally be a 50 50 mix of Sun and clouds through this period.

Temps will be a few degrees below normal Thu Fri warming back
towards normal by Sunday.

Sunday night through Wednesday... Forecast confidence is medium:
southerly low level flow between departing high pressure and an
approaching low will bring warmer and more moist conditions to
southern wisconsin early next week. A chance for showers and
storms is likely to return as well, with some uncertainty as to
the timing of the better forcing and storm chances this far out.

Aviation(18z tafs)
PrimarilyVFR conditions are expected through Thursday. Breezy
northwest winds behind a cold front will become light for this
evening and overnight as high pressure begins to move into the
area. Looks mainly dry through Thursday, other than maybe a few
afternoon sprinkles tomorrow.

May see a little fog in the typical low lying areas such as the
wisconsin river valley tonight.

Marine
High pressure centered north of the great lakes will slowly move
southeastward tonight into Thursday, reaching lake superior and
strengthening a bit by Friday. North to northeast winds will be
on the breezy side at times through Friday as the high moves into
the region. Breezy southeast winds are expected to develop this
weekend as the high slides east of the area.

Lm... None.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
