Updated aviation portion for 00z taf issuance

Short term...tonight and Monday
issued at 244 PM CDT sun Jul 24 2016

A weak cold front was moving through the eastern part of Wisconsin
this afternoon. It was plently humid enough at the surface for
convective clouds but the air in the mid levels was warm and dry
enough to limit activity to just a few showers as of 20z. Any
shower activity in th enext few hours shoudl exit the area by
sunset.

Clearing expected tonight with lows about 8 degrees above normal
in most places, but with lower humidity than much of the last
week. Monday should be mostly sunny and around 3 degrees warmer
than usual. Dewpoints will also be closer to normal, so it should
be pleasant to most people.

Long term...Monday night through Sunday
issued at 244 PM CDT sun Jul 24 2016

Little change in previous forecast...outside of minor timing
adjustments on late Tuesday shortwave trof. Generally flat upper
flow across the region gradually becomes more west-northwest by
the end of the week as a longer-wave trough starts to amplify
over the Great Lakes/Ohio Valley. Shortwave trofs in the upper
level flow, along with a surface boundary in the vicinity and
abundant low-level moisture lurking just to the south, yield
plenty of chances for showers and thunderstorms during the mid- and
latter part of the week. The best chance for convection still
looks like the period late Tuesday night through Thursday as a
couple of short waves and a cold front pass through the area.

Temps will be typical of late July with no wild swings + / - of
climatological normals.
