Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Green Bay WI
418 AM CDT Sun Apr 15 2018

Updated headline coding is below. Complete discussion to follow a
little later this morning.

Issued at 413 AM CDT Sun Apr 15 2018

The main headline change this morning will be to extend the
Lakeshore Flood Warning/Advisory to 6 pm, and the Gale Warning to
midnight. Sleet in east-central Wisconsin has kept vsbys up and
snow amounts down since yesterday evening, and kept the southern
part of the forecast area from meeting blizzard criteria.
RAP/HRRR/NAM soundings are very insistent the warm layer aloft
will erode in the next several hours, resulting in a change to
heavy snow. Looks like this is happening now in GRB, but may take
a while (until around 12-13Z) to reach the SE corner of the area.
Grids already sent. Hazard products will be out ASAP.
