Updated aviation portion for 12Z TAF issuance

SHORT TERM. Today . Tonight . and Monday Issued at 244 AM CDT Sun Jul 5 2020

The main concern in the short-term portion of the forecast will be above normal temperatures and timing/chances of shower and thunderstorm development.

Today: Overall pattern is expected to remain fairly similar to Saturday. The main difference will be a shortwave passing the U.P. and across the WI/U.P. border. It is looking like the timing would put the shortwave just west of the area by mid to late afternoon and then passing through the area by early evening, so shower and thunderstorm coverage will likely increase across mainly north- central and far northeast WI. It is also possible that afternoon showers and storms could form along lake breeze boundaries, which has been happening over the past few days as well. This will keep at least isolated showers and storm potential throughout much of the rest of the area as well. Shear values increase a bit this afternoon as the shortwave passes to the north, but it looks like northeast WI will only see around 20kts of shear. This will keep the main storm mode as pulse-type, with the main impacts being torrential rainfall and brief gusty winds as the storms collapse. Otherwise, temperatures will continue to run well above normal with highs lingering in the upper 80s to low 90s. Depending on overall coverage, locations near the WI/UP border may see a bit more of a break in the highest temperatures.

Tonight: The surface ridge is expected to drift eastward as a surface low slides across Manitoba into Ontario. This low will drag a north south oriented cold front from western MN around 00Z/6 to far northwest WI as the front slows and becomes more northeast to southwest oriented by 12Z/6. The associated shortwave is expected to to follow roughly the same trek. The loss of daytime heating along with increased temperature inversion and the better forcing remaining northwest of the CWA will help to keep much of northeast WI dry through most of the night. The GFS rushes the front farther east, allowing more precipitation to move into the area. At this point, the GFS looks like the outlier and has been largely discounted. Shallow patchy fog may form once again, but this will largely depend on whether any clouds push into the area. Muggy conditions will continue with overnight lows only dropping into the mid to upper 60s. A few spots may not drop below 70 degrees!

Monday: The aforementioned cold front and shortwave are expected to make very slow progress east/southeastward through the day Monday. In fact, models generally keep the front over far northwest WI through late afternoon. This will keep much of northeast WI in the continued very warm/muggy airmass. A bit more moisture will be available as the high shifts eastward, which will help to produce isolated to scattered rain showers for much of the area during peak heating of the day. These showers and storms will likely be a bit more numerous than has been observed over the past few days. The two main areas of better focus will be along lake breezes that develop late morning into the afternoon and toward central and north-central WI as the front slowly approaches those areas. Otherwise, much of the rest of the area would be in the more pop-up type storm activity. Overall shear values look to be fairly light with only around 20 kts of shear expected. The only place that this could be slightly higher (and may lead to locally stronger storms) would be along lake breeze boundaries, with increased low-level wind shifts/converge. Still, the overall storm mode will likely be pulse-type storms with very heavy rainfall possible along with gusty winds and small hail being the main threats. High temperatures are expected to continue to be close to persistence with most locations in the upper 80s to low 90s. The challenging part of forecast temperatures for Monday will be the coverage of showers and storms.

LONG TERM. Monday Night Through Saturday Issued at 244 AM CDT Sun Jul 5 2020

Forecast concerns continue to revolve around thunderstorm chances Monday night into Tuesday and also in the Thursday to Friday time period. In general, upper troughing over the Pacific Northwest will continue to lead to above normal mid-level heights over the western Great Lakes at least into the middle of July. As a result, temperatures look to remain above normal for the foreseeable future. Like last night, will continue to rely upon the ecmwf for the details.

Monday night through Tuesday night . Guidance continues to insist that a weakening cold front will stall across northern Wisconsin on late Monday night into Tuesday before returning north. Instability will be diminishing as the front first approaches, but thunderstorm chances will increase from northwest to southeast through the night nonetheless. As the front interacts with a weak shortwave impulse and building diurnal instability on Tuesday, will likely see an uptick of thunderstorm coverage and intensity. Relatively weak shear will be prevalent, but high instability could lead to a threat of strong to maybe even a few severe pulse storms on Tuesday afternoon. Any outflow boundaries from convection on Monday night could also influence thunderstorm coverage on Tuesday. Still may need another day or two before getting a better handle on these sorts of details.

Rest of the forecast . The front will return north on Wednesday, and the strongest return flow (and thunderstorm chances), will likely remain northwest of the region. The next significant chances for thunderstorms will occur on Thursday into Friday with the arrival of the next cold front. Made no changes to the forecast initialization during this period.

AVIATION. for 12Z TAF Issuance Issued at 543 AM CDT Sun Jul 5 2020

Generally expecting VFR conditions at each of the TAF sites for this issuance. A disturbance will pass just north of the the area this afternoon and may touch off some isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms. Confidence in exact timing and coverage is fairly low, so limited mention to VCSH at AUW/CWA and VCTS at RHI between 20Z and 22Z. It is possible the precipitation could start a bit earlier. Any thunderstorms will have the capability of producing very heavy rain and brief gusty winds. Patchy ground fog may develop again tonight, especially at sites that see rain today.

GRB WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. NONE.
