SHORT TERM. (Tonight through Wednesday) Issued at 147 PM CDT Tue Sep 29 2020
Cool/cyclonic northwest flow aloft continues across the region this afternoon with Visible satellite this afternoon showing cumulus-o- plenty in daytime heating and steep low level lapse rates. A few showers will be possible this afternoon but are expected to diminish going into this evening with loss of surface heating. Water vapor this afternoon showing a weak wave upstream along the US/Canadian border and this will drop southeast into the area after midnight. Fairly good lift associated with this wave, so expecting more scattered shower activity mainly east of the Mississippi River. This wave departs east of the area by afternoon only to be followed by another one moving through MN. So, will continue shower chances through the day with even the chance of a few rumbles of thunder in deeper convection. Also, it will be a brisk day with northwest winds gusting in the 20 to 30 mph range. Otherwise, unseasonably cool conditions continue with lows tonight in the upper 30s to mid 40s and highs Wednesday ranging from the lower 50s to lower 60s.
LONG TERM. (Thursday through Tuesday) Issued at 147 PM CDT Tue Sep 29 2020
Northwest flow ushers another mid-level wave/surface cold front in on Thursday for continued shower and isolated thunderstorm chances. Plan on highs only in the upper 40s to mid 50s. Will have to watch for areas of frost Thursday night, depending how much cloud lingers. Highest probability of frost looks to be in the favored bog/sand areas of central WI. Right now, looks like overnight lows will range from the upper 20s/lower 30s across central WI, to the mid 30s elsewhere.
Friday is looking very cool with highs only in the mid 40s to the lower 50s as high pressure builds south out of Canada.
Deep trough remains anchored across the Mississippi River Valley/Great Lakes region through the weekend. More shower chances move into the area Saturday into Sunday as a fairly vigorous embedded mid-level wave pushes into the area. Otherwise, another chilly day on tap with highs only in the 40s to mid 50s.
Some drying/warming looks to take place Monday into Tuesday as the trough pushes east and mid-level heights recover some. Right now, looks like highs Monday will top off in the mid-50s/lower 60s and in the 60s to near 70 for Tuesday.
AVIATION. (For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Wednesday evening) Issued at 629 PM CDT Tue Sep 29 2020
Another shortwave trough will move through the area late tonight and Wednesday. The rainfall associated with this system will likely be east of KRST. Meanwhile, KLSE will see see periodic showers and maybe an isolated storm after 30.08z. Ceilings will be primarily around 10K feet tonight and around 5K on Wednesday for the TAF sites. Meanwhile, there will likley be MVFR ceilings along and north I-94 on Wednesday.
