Forecast discussion for routine morning forecast issuance

.SHORT TERM...Today...Tonight...and Monday
Issued at 237 AM CDT Sun Jun 26 2016

A cold front that was forecast to push across most of Wisconsin
overnight will bring an end to showers and thunderstorms as it
passes to the east. 00Z models showed the front and some rain
lingering into the morning across eastern Wisconsin so have left
some pops in the east for at least the early part of the morning.
Once the front passes and the rain departs skies should become
partly cloudy/mostly clear for the rest of the day as drier air
makes its way into the forecast area. Clouds will increase across
northern Wisconsin tonight in surface cyclonic flow ahead of a mid
level short wave that is expected to move into the state on Monday.
This will also bring a chance for showers to northern Wisconsin on
Monday, but the rest of the area should just see an increase in
clouds.

Highs are expected to be well above normal today, but a little
cooler and drier than Saturday. It should be a bit cooler tonight,
but still warmer than normal. Highs on Monday will be a little below
normal and around 10 degrees cooler than today.

.LONG TERM...Monday Night Through Saturday
Issued at 237 AM CDT Sun Jun 26 2016

Northwest flow aloft will dominate much of the week and even into
next weekend with cooler readings. Series of short wave troughs
dropping through the area will provide spotty chances of rainfall.
With the deeper moisture pushed well south of the area rainfall
amounts will be limited.

First chance of showers will be Monday into Monday night as a
shortwave trough drops southeast over Upper Michigan and
Northeast Wisconsin before departing to the east Monday night.
After a few quiet days, Medium range progs in fair agreementwith
dropping another but more robust shortwave trough over the area
toward thursday. Will keep thunderstorm chances going thursday
with a cold front passage and reinforcing shot of cooler air.

showers and storms, with some IFR ceilings in far northern
Wisconsin. Visibilities were MVFR and IFR in the some of the
heaviest rainfall. The showers and storms will make their way out
of the area as a cold front continues across central and eastern
