Forecast discussion for routine afternoon forecast issuance

.SHORT TERM...Tonight and Friday
Issued at 243 PM CDT Thu Mar 15 2018

Satellite showed that clouds had cleared all but parts of far
eastern WI this afternoon. North to northwest winds were gusting
to 15 to 20 knots, but are expected to subside by sunset. Clear
skies and light winds will allow temperatures to plummet
overnight. Expect lows to range from around zero in far north
central WI to the teens in the Fox Valley and lakeshore areas.

Sunny skies should boost temperatures into the upper 30s and lower
40s on Friday, with onshore winds resulting in slightly cooler
readings near the lakeshore.

.LONG TERM...Friday Night Through Thursday
Issued at 243 PM CDT Thu Mar 15 2018

Canadian high pressure will keep the forecast area dry through
the weekend. A back door cold front will sag south across the
region on Sunday/Sunday night, with an associated increase in
cloud cover. Ahead of the front, temperatures will moderate,
with highs in the 40s and lower 50s over the weekend.

Mostly cloudy, cooler and blustery conditions are anticipated
early next work week, as a significant low pressure system tracks
well to our south. Gusty northeast winds are expected in the Fox
Valley and lakeshore areas. High temperatures will settle back
into the 30s and lower 40s.

Precipitation chances are low through the extended period, but
there may be a chance of light snow showers or flurries as an
upper level trof passes through midweek. However, Canadian high
pressure should reestablish itself over the region by Thursday.

.AVIATION...for 18Z TAF Issuance
Issued at 1232 PM CDT Thu Mar 15 2018

Any remaining stratocumulus in eastern WI should quickly erode
early this afternoon, followed by mostly clear skies for the rest
of the TAF period. Gusty northwest to north winds will become
light tonight, then turn southeast Friday morning.

There could be patchy MVFR/IFR fog over far north central WI
(mainly Vilas county) late tonight, but confidence in this aspect
of the forecast is low.
