Updated aviation portion for 06Z TAF issuance

.SHORT TERM...Tonight and Saturday
Issued at 127 PM CST Fri Mar 9 2018

Much of the area has become mostly sunny this afternoon as some
drier air has advected in from the west. The main exception is
across the far north and northeast with moisture streaming in from
Lake Superior. Clouds will once again be an issue tonight as winds
weaken and turn northeasterly, which could keep some clouds in
across the northeast. However even if this happens the clouds
themselves shouldn`t be a solid overcast during the entire
overnight period. The clouds will play an important role in low
temperatures tonight, as low temperatures last night plummeted
across much of the region into the single digits. Given less cloud
cover tonight, a still relatively new snowpack, and light winds
with high pressure overhead will take temperatures down a few
more degrees with lows ranging from below zero across the far
north, around zero a bit farther south across the rest of north-
central Wisconsin, with lows in the single digits above zero
across central and around 10 across east-central Wisconsin away
from the lakeshore.

By Saturday the high slides east allowing mid and high clouds from
a low out to the west to infiltrate the region. A bit warmer
temperatures are expected on Saturday as the region gets on the
backside of the high with afternoon temperatures in the 30s.

.LONG TERM...Saturday Night Through Friday
Issued at 127 PM CST Fri Mar 9 2018

High pressure will dominate the weather pattern over Northeast
Wisconsin next week. Other than a few flurries or two in northern
Wisconsin, no precipitation is expected in our area until late in
the week; computer models indicate the pattern will break down on
Friday and a low pressure trough digging down along the
California Coast will have a chance to sling out toward the
