Wisconsin Weather Update

Wisconsin Weather Update for August 29, 2014.

By: HaleStorm, 1:13 PM GMT on August 29, 2014

Good Friday morning! Here’s your personally-researched weekend weather preview for east-central and southern Wisconsin:

Forecast Summary: Scattered storms through early Saturday. More storms Sunday night. Warm and somewhat humid through the holiday weekend.

Scientific Synopsis: A slow-moving area of low pressure to our west is going to continue to develop these scattered showers and thunderstorms that began yesterday evening and should linger through early Saturday. After that we probably dry out for a couple days, other than an isolated thundershower that could develop Saturday afternoon or evening. Temps should be warmer than yesterday and somewhat humid through Monday, with the humidity dropping on Tuesday.

Wisconsin Weather Update for August 22, 2014.

By: HaleStorm, 1:00 PM GMT on August 22, 2014

Good Friday morning! Here’s your personally-researched weekend weather preview for east-central and southern Wisconsin:

Active Advisory: Dense fog advisory remains in effect until 10 am CDT this morning.

Forecast Summary: Areas of morning fog. Warm and humid with scattered thunderstorms through Tuesday. Tropical summer is here!

Scientific Synopsis: Very warm and humid air has moved in from the south and will create a tropical atmosphere around here through next week Tuesday. There’s a stalled area of low pressure in the Rockies, which will continue the flow of humid southerly air ahead of the low through early next week. Once this low finally moves through Tuesday, we will finally get some relief as cool air moves back in behind its cold front on Wednesday, but until then it’s swimming pools, air conditioners, and less complaining about how it never really got that warm this summer.
http://www.hpc.ncep.noaa.gov/sfc/ussatsfc.gif

Today:
Conditions: Mostly cloudy, warm and humid. Areas of fog this morning. Isolated thunderstorms may pop up later today, but they aren’t likely.
Chance of Rain: 25%
High Temp: Near 83 east-central, mid- 80s south.
Dew Points: Upper 60s to lower 70s. (humid)
Winds: Mostly light from the southeast.

Raw Model Data: (combined numerical output range from three different NOAA weather models)
Appleton: Highs 78-82.
Madison: Highs 84-87.
Milwaukee: Highs 77-81.
http://www.nws.noaa.gov/cgi-bin/mos/getall.pl?sta =KATW&sta=KMSN&sta=KMKE

Tonight:
Conditions: Mostly cloudy with isolated thunderstorms. Warm and muggy overnight.
Chance of Rain: 20%
Low Temp: Upper 60s.

Saturday:
Conditions: Morning fog, then mostly cloudy with scattered thunderstorms.
Chance of Rain: 40%
Temps: Highs in the lower 80s.
Dew Points: Upper 60s to near 70. (humid)
Winds: Just a little breezy from the southeast.

Sunday:
Conditions: Morning fog, then mostly cloudy with scattered thunderstorms. Again.
Chance of Rain: 40%
Temps: Highs in the mid- to upper 80s. Some spots could hit 90!
Dew Points: Upper 60s to near 70. (humid)

Next Week’s Outlook:
The trend of warm and humid air with scattered thunderstorms is likely to continue through Tuesday night. We should dry out and cool off for the second half of next week. Highs in the mid- to upper 80s Monday and Tuesday, then back into the 70s after that.

Forecast Summary: Partly sunny, warmer today. Scattered storms, more humid Saturday. Cooler, drier Sunday.

Wisconsin Weather Update for August 1, 2014.

By: HaleStorm, 1:21 PM GMT on August 01, 2014

Good Friday morning! Here’s your personally-researched weekend weather preview for east-central and southern Wisconsin:

Forecast Summary: Scattered storms today and Sunday, partly cloudy Saturday. High temps near or just above 80 for the foreseeable future.

Scientific Synopsis: On Tuesday the Appleton area had only its second Severe Thunderstorm Warning issued all summer. Scattered storms are in the forecast again today as a short wave trough coming down from Canada is expected to work with our warm and somewhat humid air to create an unstable environment this afternoon and evening. Similar to yesterday, expect scattered storms to develop this afternoon and evening, with an isolated shot at a storm reaching severe levels with strong winds and small hail possible. We should remain dry tomorrow but more storms are in the forecast on Sunday and continuing through most of next week.

Today:
Conditions: Sunshine this morning, but becoming partly sunny with scattered thundershowers developing again this afternoon and evening.
Chance of Rain: 40%
High Temp: Near 81. Dew point near 60.
Winds: Light and becoming variable.

Raw Model Data: (combined numerical output range from three different NOAA weather models)
Appleton: Highs 78-81.
Madison: Highs 82-83.
Milwaukee: Highs 76-79.
http://www.nws.noaa.gov/cgi-bin/mos/getall.pl?sta =KATW&sta=KMSN&sta=KMKE

Tonight:
Conditions: Becoming partly cloudy.
Low Temp: Upper 50s.

Saturday:
Conditions: Partly cloudy.
Temps: Highs in the lower 80s. Dew point near 60.

Sunday:
Conditions: Partly sunny with scattered showers and storms.
Chance of Rain: 40%
Temps: Highs in the lower 80s. Dew points in the lower 60s.
