Tonight...and Saturday

The latest RAP analysis and satellite/radar imagery show low pressure over North Dakota and high pressure over the far southeast United States. Strong warm advection above the boundary layer is occurring between these features and over the western Great Lakes. Low stratus (300-600 ft agl) is expanding across far northeast WI and into north-central WI early this morning, while other 4000-5000 ft stratus is moving northeast into central WI.

Rather large 0-2km dewpoint depressions exist upstream in this warm advection pattern, and dry conditions prevail over the central Plains. But then attention turns to potent shortwave energy moving into the Colorado Plateau and its impacts on the sensible weather tonight into Saturday across northeast Wisconsin.

Today...Forecast soundings indicate that low clouds will be difficult to erode across northern Wisconsin thanks to a strong inversion and additional low level moisture (currently over South Dakota) pushing in from the west during the afternoon. Parts of central and east-central WI should see more in the way of sunshine, and warmer temps. Adjusted high temps slightly lower across the north to account for more cloud cover. Dont't think will see drizzle/showers out of these clouds as saturation depth looks relatively shallow. Highs will range from the lower 40s to lower 50s.

Tonight into Saturday...Where low stratus doesn't prevail, clouds will spread northeast across the region after midnight as strong shortwave energy and low pressure system rapidly move from the southern Plains to the central Great Lakes. Compared to 24 hours ago, models have trended weaker and further east with the strength and track of the cyclone. Significant differences remain with the precipitation fields, particularly between the convective allowing models versus the medium range models. Confidence remain below normal for this time period of the forecast.

Strong lift will arrive between 3 am to 9 am Saturday across northeast Wisconsin with passage of the shortwave/surface wave.
Negative thetae lapse rates in the 850-500mb layer suggest reduce stability that could lead to a few lightning strikes over northeast WI.

With the eastward track, forecast precipitation has trended down significantly across northeast WI while the heaviest showers should fall from southeast WI to northern Lower Michigan. In fact, most of the convective allowing models generate little to no precip over north-central WI through Saturday morning. Given relatively warm airmass and lack of high precip rates, the probability of significant snowfall has dropped significantly compared to 24 hours ago.

That said, there remain a few models that produce a few inches snowfall over north-central WI. The 06z HRRR is most aggressive (06z NamNest not far behind), and produces a narrow band of 6 inches from Langlade to western Florence county! Therefore think that details could still change rather abruptly.

After a break in the precip from late morning through early afternoon, northern stream shortwave will bring light snow to the north- central WI in the afternoon. Temperatures will be colder by this time, which should allow for minor accumulations perhaps around a half inch to an inch by 6 pm Saturday.

LONG TERM...Saturday Night Through Thursday Precipitation will taper off early Sunday morning as low pressure departs to the northeast out of the Great Lakes region. Surface- based high pressure ridging will then expand east and north into our area. The tail end of a Canadian cold front appears to sweep through Wisconsin on Tuesday morning and bring some colder temperatures and gusty winds, but little or no precipitation is expected with the front as it whips through. The strong high pressure ridge is then expected to reassert itself again and bring high temperatures in the 40s later in the week.

for 18Z TAF Issuance Issued at 1238 PM CST Fri Dec 8 2023

For the afternoon and evening, high clouds will pass over the region but will keep VFR in place for most. The only exception will be an area of MVFR clouds that are moving into north-central WI this afternoon and will likely impact RHI starting in the mid afternoon.

Tonight, an active weather system will move in from the south, bringing widespread 5000-6000 foot ceilings followed by rain. As we get into the morning, ceilings will drop to MVFR and possibly lower in portions of central WI. Visibility could also drop briefly in the late morning as rain ends and some fog develops. A few spots in the far north could see snow from this system as it departs the region, so made a mention in RHI. Finally, there should be some improvement in conditions in the afternoon for Saturday, before another round of active weather arrives Saturday evening. Snow will be the more likely precipitation type Saturday evening into Saturday night.
