SHORT TERM. (Issued 215 PM CST Fri Nov 27 2020)
Tonight and Saturday:
Skies continue to clear across southern Wisconsin this afternoon. As a cold front and upper level short wave move through the region today. Winds will shift to northwesterly and colder air will move into the state behind the front. Dry conditions will persist.
High pressure will then move into the region from the west behind the upper level short wave tonight. Southwesterly winds return Saturday as the high pressure moves southeast toward the Ohio River Valley. The dry air and high pressure will keep skies clear Saturday. Temperatures are expected to be warmer with highs expected to climb into the mid to upper 40s. There even a chance that a few locations could reach 50 degrees.
LONG TERM. (Issued 215 PM CST Fri Nov 27 2020)
Saturday night through Friday:
The dry conditions are expected to continue through the weekend across southern Wisconsin. A low pressure system will move eastward across the northern Great Lakes Region on Sunday. This will drag a cold front across southern Wisconsin. No precipitation is expected as the front passes due to the lack of atmospheric moisture. Colder temperatures and increasing cloud cover will occur on the back side of the front.
By Monday an amplifying upper level trough will move over the region. This upper level trough will phase with a cut off low that is lingering over the southern Mississippi Valley Region. This will cause the upper level low to move from the western Great Lakes Region into the Ohio Valley Monday Night. There is increasing confidence that southern Wisconsin will remain on the cold, windy, and dry side of this system. The prolonged period of breezy north winds and colder conditions Monday and Tuesday will focus the higher waves on the Lake and could potentially cause issues with lakeshore flooding farther south and east. Dry and quite conditions are expected through the middle of the week.
AVIATION. (Issued 215 PM CST Fri Nov 27 2020)
VFR conditions will persist through the period. Any linger cloud cover this afternoon will burn off or move eastward out of the region. Clear skies are expected to continue through Saturday. North to northwest winds are expected to continue through the evening hours before shifting to southwesterly tonight.
MARINE. (Issued 215 PM CST Fri Nov 27 2020)
West to northwest winds are expected to continue through the evening hours. Then the winds will shift to southwesterly tonight into Saturday. An approaching low pressure system that is expected to pass through the Ohio River Valley will shift the winds back to northerly on Sunday night and Monday. There is a good chance for gale force winds over the open waters of Lake Michigan Sunday night through Tuesday.

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 numerous 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.
