Short Term...Tonight and Wednesday

Main concern in this forecast period is the evolution of the scattered showers and thunderstorms through late this evening, especially in east-central WI.

This evening through tonight...The last of the embedded shortwaves within a mid-level trough over Ontario will continue to slowly move over the central Great Lakes region during this forecast period. The mid-level support from this shortwave, in combination with several land boundaries colliding in an area with around 800 J/kg of CAPE, caused thunderstorms to quickly pop-up in east-central WI. With little deep-layer shear of 20-25 kts in this area, the storms have and will struggle to maintain an updraft, resulting in locally heavy rainfall and small hail. Meanwhile, rain over central and north- central WI will shift eastward and combine with the scattered showers and storms in east-central WI. This will keep chances for showers and storms in east-central WI through late this evening.
Additionally, radar is picking up on isolated showers and storms in western WI this afternoon, that may drop into central and north- central WI this evening. However, these showers are diurnally driven, so anticipate these showers and storms to decrease as the sun sets. The remainder of the night will be dry with some clearing in central and north-central WI, as high pressure sneaks into the region.

Wednesday...High pressure will continue to build over the area allowing for the return of dry weather. Plenty of sunshine is expected for Wednesday, however, forecast soundings indicate a cu field developing in the afternoon. High temperatures will remain a few degrees below normal with values ranging from low to middle 60s along the lakeshore, to the middle 60s to low 70s elsewhere.

Long Term...Wednesday Night Through Tuesday

Dry weather is anticipated for the first portion of this forecast period before the pattern becomes unsettled starting Friday.

Wednesday night through Friday...High pressure is expected to remain over the area for Wednesday night into Thursday and keep conditions dry. However, with the high pressure overhead into Thursday morning, chilly temperatures are expected with lows ranging from the low 30s to low 40s. Anticipate frost to develop for some locations, especially across the Northwoods, where temperatures will be coldest. The high pressure will gradually exit on Thursday and Thursday night, allowing winds to turn southwesterly and lift warmer, moist air into the region for Friday. Depending on how quickly or slowly this high pressure and associated upper-level ridge exits to the east on Friday, the forecast area may see the next chance for precip from the trailing embedded shortwave. Models indicate much of the forecast area should remain dry on Friday, with the exception in far north- central WI, where rain may develop later on Friday.

Rest of the extended...Models are struggling with the evolution of the upper-level pattern and how the embedded shortwaves will interact beyond Friday. However, there does appear to be multiple chances for showers and thunderstorms at times throughout the weekend and into early next week.

for 06Z TAF Issuance Issued at 1000 PM CDT Tue May 28 2024

Isolated showers should end by the beginning of the new TAF period, as a short-wave trough departs. Clearing has already occurred over the western part of the forecast area, and should spread into eastern WI later tonight into early Wednesday. Expect VFR conditions to prevail, except in NC WI, where patchy ground fog will drop vsbys to IFR overnight into early Wednesday. Cannot rule out the potential for fog in east central WI, where heavy rainfall fell earlier today, but winds should provide enough mixing to prevent it in most areas. Winds will be from the north tonight, then gradually veer NE-E on Wednesday.
