.TODAY AND TONIGHT...This section will be added shortly.

.FRIDAY...Forecast Confidence...High

High pressure will likely bring pleasant weather to southern
Wisconsin on Friday. Will probably see mid/high level clouds
increase from the southwest during the day, but the day will at
least start out with a good amount of sunshine. High temps will be
comfortable in the mid/upper 70s.

.FRIDAY EVENING THROUGH SATURDAY...Forecast Confidence...Medium

Deeper surge of moisture will push in from the southwest Friday
evening and overnight. Will see decent warm advection too as low
level jet increases over southern Wisconsin. Bumped pops up quite
a bit for this period (especially after midnight) with models in
decent agreement with a shortwave lifting through.

Showers/storms will then be likely across southern Wisconsin
Saturday ahead of an approaching trough. Precip chances will
linger into Sat night as the trough moves through. Could see some
locally heavy rainfall, with precipitable water values up around
2 inches.

Should see near normal temps on Saturday.

.SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY...Forecast confidence...Medium

Surface high pressure will be in place for most of the time Sunday
through Wednesday. The overall upper level pattern will be ridging
during this time period, so warm temps are expected for the first
half of next week. Kept it mainly dry through Wednesday, though
have some low pops at times as a weak wave or two may move through
the northern periphery of the ridge.
