Area Forecast Discussion

.SHORT TERM...

Today and Tonight...Forecast confidence is high...

The snow has ended across the area this morning, and skies will
continue to clear from the north. North to northwest winds will
remain breezy today, as temperatures warm into the low to mid 40s.

High pressure will settle into the area tonight. Temperatures will
fall into the low to mid 20s, though given light winds, readings
will likely bounce around a fair amount during the overnight
hours. With those light winds, mostly clear skies, and plenty of
low level moisture, fog/freezing fog development will be possible,
especially after midnight. Along with reduced visibility, any
freezing fog could result in a layer of frost on roadways,
resulting in renewed slick spots by Friday morning.

.LONG TERM...

Friday through Monday...Forecast confidence is high:

High pressure overhead Friday will move slowly eastward over the
weekend into early next week. This high will bring dry weather and
plenty of sunshine to the forecast area through this period.
Temperatures will finally warm back to around normal for the
weekend...and might even be a couple degrees above normal by
Monday!

Tuesday and Wednesday...Forecast confidence is medium:

Models show a low pressure and an associated cold front to move
through later Tuesday into Tuesday night. This may bring some
showers to southern Wisconsin. Increased precip chances a bit, as
models are starting to come into better agreement with the
details of this system. Should see the milder temps continue
Tuesday ahead of the cold front, with temps falling back to around
normal or even a below normal Wednesday behind the departing
low/front.

&&

.AVIATION(09Z TAF Update)...

Snow has ended this morning, and conditions are rapidly improving
to VFR. North to northwest winds and VFR conditions will prevail
during the day today.

After midnight tonight, some fog or freezing fog development will
be possible. Should this occur, a period of IFR visibility will be
possible Friday morning.

&&

.MARINE...

North to northwest winds will remain breezy today, with gusts
between 20 and 25 knots. Waves will also remain rather high
through the afternoon hours, with 3-7 foot waves this morning
slowly diminishing during the afternoon hours. A Small Craft
Advisory remains in effect until early evening.

After today, a period of quiet weather is expected. No significant
marine hazards are currently expected through at least early next
week.
