PREV DISCUSSION... (Issued 353 AM CDT Sun Jun 18 2017)


Today and tonight...Forecast confidence is high.

Showers north of Madison will continue newd and exit east central WI
by 11z. The strong shortwave trough over sw WI will track newd to
Ontario, Canada by this evening. Cyclonic flow today and cooler air
aloft will result in isolated showers and possibly a tstorm for the
afternoon. Cold advection on breezy wly winds will keep temps in the
70s today with more comfortable humidity as the dewpoints fall into
the 50s. Weak cold advection will continue tonight with low temps
ranging from 55-60F.


Monday and Tuesday...Forecast confidence is medium to high:

A broad trough will remain in the area early this week. Weak waves
are expected to move through both Monday and Tuesday, bringing
precip chances. The showers will likely be mostly diurnally driven
each day, so best chance will be from late morning into early
evening. Better moisture and instability will be on Monday, so
have higher precip chances and mention of thunder. Highs will be a
few degrees below normal for early in the week.

Wednesday through Saturday...Forecast confidence is medium:

The flow will turn more zonal mid-week, allowing a return of
deeper moisture and warmer temps. Shower/storm chances will also
increase during this time as moisture/instability and forcing
increase with low pressure moving into the region.

Models are in pretty good agreement that the first focus of
storms will be with temperature and moisture advection on
Wednesday, with storms likely Wednesday night as the main wave and
low move through.

Precip should wind down early Thursday, with mainly dry weather
for the rest of the day. Models aren`t in great agreement beyond
this. They agree that there will be more waves and resultant
shower/storm chances late in the week, but struggle with timing
and placement of the systems.

AVIATION(09Z TAFS)...Showers and mid level clouds will exit srn WI
by 11-12z. However sct-bkn010-030 stratocumulus will occur over
south central WI this AM but rise to 3.5-5.0 kft for the late
morning and afternoon over all of srn WI. Isold showers for the
afternoon, possibly a tstorm. Partly cloudy skies for tnt.
