AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GREEN BAY WI
540 AM CST FRI DEC 19 2014

UPDATED AVIATION PORTION FOR 12Z TAF ISSUANCE

.SHORT TERM...TODAY...TONIGHT...AND SATURDAY
ISSUED AT 318 AM CST FRI DEC 19 2014

CLOUD TRENDS AND TEMPERATURES WILL BE THE MAIN FCST CONCERNS
THROUGH SATURDAY.

HIGH PRESSURE WAS SITUATED OVER WI EARLY THIS MORNING. SOME LAKE
ENHANCED CLOUDS HAD DRIFTED INLAND OVER FAR EASTERN WI DUE TO
WEAK ONSHORE FLOW. IN ADDITION...STRATUS CLOUDS WERE SITUATED
OVER THE FAR WSTRN PART OF THE FCST AREA...AND WERE EDGING EAST.
IN BETWEEN...SKIES WERE MOSTLY CLEAR. TEMPERATURES RANGED FROM
THE SINGLE DIGITS ABOVE AND BLO ZERO OVER NORTHERN WI...TO THE
TEENS AND LOWER 20S FARTHER SOUTH.

AN UPPER LEVEL TROF WILL PASS MAINLY NW OF THE FORECAST AREA
TODAY...SO LIGHT SNOW/FLURRIES OVER MN SHOULD BYPASS NORTH
CENTRAL WI. EXPECT LAKE ENHANCED CLOUDS TO DISSIPATE THIS
MORNING AS ONSHORE FLOW WEAKENS AND ENDS. LOW STRATUS OVER PARTS
OF NC/C WI SHOULD CONTINUE TO VERY SLOWLY SHIFT EAST...THOUGH
THE EASTERN EDGE MAY TEND TO DISSIPATE DUE TO DAYTIME MIXING.
HIGH TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO WARM INTO THE MIDDLE 20S TO
LOWER 30S.

TONIGHT...CLOUDS WILL CONTINUE TO SHIFT EAST...WITH ALL BUT
FAR EASTERN WI BECOMING MOSTLY CLOUDY TO CLOUDY. PARTLY CLOUDY
SKIES AND LIGHT WINDS IN EASTERN WI MAY LEAD TO PATCHY FOG
DEVELOPMENT. MOST PLACES SHOULD HAVE MIN TEMPS IN THE MIDDLE
TEENS TO LOWER 20S...THOUGH SINGLE DIGITS AND LOWER TEENS ARE
POSSIBLE IN FAR NE WI.

ON SATURDAY...A WEAK UPPER TROF WILL MOVE INTO THE REGION.
THOUGH MOISTURE WILL CONTINUE TO INCREASE/DEEPEN WITH TIME...
THE MOISTURE LAYERS APPEAR TO BE A BIT DISJOINTED...AND LITTLE
OR NO LIFT IS EVIDENT...SO WILL KEEP THE CURRENT DRY FCST INTACT.
HIGH TEMPERATURES SHOULD WARM INTO THE UPPER 20S TO MIDDLE 30S.

.LONG TERM...SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY
ISSUED AT 318 AM CST FRI DEC 19 2014

THE LATEST GFS AND ECMWF ENSEMBLE MEANS CONTINUE TO SHOW AN 
AMPLIFYING TROUGH OVER THE WESTERN GREAT LAKES REGION DURING THE 
MONDAY TO WEDNESDAY PERIOD OF NEXT WEEK.  THE MEDIUM RANGE MODELS 
ARE REASONABLY CLUSTERED THIS FAR OUT...BUT SUBTLE DIFFERENCES WITH 
RESPECT TO THE DEPTH AND TRACK OF THE CYCLONE LEAD TO RATHER LARGE 
UNCERTAINTY WITH THE FORECAST.  THE NEW ECMWF HAS A MORE SOUTHERLY 
TRACK AND IS SIGNIFICANTLY DEEPER COMPARED TO OTHER GUIDANCE WHILE 
THE GEM IS FARTHER NORTH.  THE ENSEMBLE MEANS RESIDE BETWEEN THESE 
TWO MODELS...WHICH IS CLOSEST TO THE GFS...BUT DO NOT WANT TO RELY 
SOLELY ON THIS MODEL FOR THE DETAILS.  WILL INSTEAD BLEND THE 
GFS/ECMWF FOR MUCH OF THIS FORECAST.

SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT...ONE SHORTWAVE TROUGH WILL BE 
EXITING THE REGION SATURDAY NIGHT...WHILE THE NEXT WAVE MOVES EAST 
ACROSS THE CENTRAL PLAINS.  ALONG WITH LIGHT SOUTHERLY FLOW...CLOUDS 
ASSOCIATING WITH THE DEPARTING WAVE COMBINED WITH INCOMING CLOUDS 
FROM THE NEXT SYSTEM SHOULD LEAD TO A MOSTLY CLOUDY NIGHT ACROSS THE 
REGION.  STILL LOOKING AT DRY WEDGE IN THE MID-LEVELS WHICH SHOULD 
KEEP THE AREA DRY.  THIS WILL CHANGE WITH THE ARRIVAL OF THE QUICK 
MOVING CENTRAL PLAINS SHORTWAVE ON SUNDAY.  INCREASING ISENTROPIC 
ASCENT/FGEN AND WEAK QG FORCING WILL LEAD TO AN AREA OF LIGHT SNOW 
MOVING INTO THE REGION SUNDAY MORNING.  TEMPERATURES LOOK COLD 
ENOUGH FOR ALL SNOW THOUGH SURFACE TEMPS AROUND 33 TO 34 SHOULD LEAD 
TO MELTING ON ROADWAYS OVER EASTERN WISCONSIN.  PROGGED QPF AMOUNTS 
USING A 10-12:1 RATIO WOULD GIVE A HALF INCH TO AN INCH OF 
ACCUMULATION BY THE END OF SUNDAY AFTERNOON. THOUGH THE SHORTWAVE 
WILL BE EXITING THE REGION EARLY IN THE EVENING...MODELS CONTINUE TO 
GENERATE LIGHT PRECIP THROUGH THE NIGHT.  NOT EXACTLY CLEAR WHY AS 
PROGGED SOUNDINGS SHOW MID-LEVEL DRY AIR MOVING IN AND ASCENT 
WEAKENS.  WILL KEEP A SMALL CHANCE IN THE FORECAST...BUT THINK THE 
MODELS ARE OVERDONE.  COULD SEE ANOTHER INCH OVER N-C WISCONSIN BY 
MORNING IF MODELS ARE CORRECT.  

REST OF THE FORECAST...A DIGGING SHORTWAVE ON MONDAY WILL BE 
INTENSIFYING AS IT MOVES ACROSS THE CENTRAL PLAINS.  THE AMPLIFYING 
FLOW ARGUES FOR A SLOWER SOLUTION SO WONDER IF MUCH OF THE DAY WILL 
BE DRY...LIKE THE ECMWF SHOWS.  BUT AS THE CYCLONE TRACKS INTO THE 
WESTERN GREAT LAKES MONDAY NIGHT...SHOULD SEE WIDESPREAD PRECIP MOVE 
ACROSS THE REGION.  TEMPERATURE PROFILES CALL FOR ALL SNOW ACROSS 
THE WEST...AND MIX OF RAIN AND SNOW ACROSS THE EAST.  THE CYCLONE 
MEANDERS ABOUT MONDAY NIGHT AND TUESDAY WITH THE COLUMN GRADUALLY 
COOLING.  THOUGH A MIX OF RAIN AND SNOW WILL LIKELY PERSIST INTO 
TUESDAY ACROSS THE EAST...ALL AREAS COULD SEE LIGHT SNOW ON TUESDAY 
NIGHT.  LIGHT SNOW WILL LIKELY CONTINUE WEDNESDAY AND WEDNESDAY 
NIGHT BEFORE DRY WEATHER RETURNS ON THURSDAY.  

IN GENERAL THOUGH...THIS LOOKS LIKE A SEVERAL DAY EVENT OF LIGHT 
PRECIP.  NORTH-CENTRAL WISCONSIN LOOKS TO SEE THE MOST ACCUMULATING 
SNOW BUT HIGH IMPACT AMOUNTS DO NOT APPEAR LIKELY AT THIS TIME. 
DETAILS CAN CHANGE THOUGH...SO ANYONE WITH TRAVEL PLANS NEXT WEEK 
SHOULD STAY TUNED TO THE LATEST FORECASTS.

.AVIATION...FOR 12Z TAF ISSUANCE
ISSUED AT 526 AM CST FRI DEC 19 2014

LOW CLOUD TRENDS WILL BE THE MAIN FCST CHALLENGE THROUGH THIS
TAF PERIOD. LAKE EFFECT CLOUDS (MVFR CIGS AT MTW) SHOULD DISSIPATE
OVER EC WI BY MID-MORNING AS ONSHORE FLOW WEAKENS. IN ADDITION...
PATCHY FREEZING FOG OVER NC WI IS EXPECTED TO COME TO AN END THIS
MORNING. WIDESPREAD MVFR CIGS OVER NC/C WI WERE EDGING EASTWARD AT
ISSUANCE TIME...BUT THIS EASTWARD PROGRESS SHOULD BE SLOWED DURING
THE DAY AS LLVL WINDS BECOME SSW AND MIXING ERODES THE EASTERN
EDGE OF THE CLOUD DECK. CLOUD COVER SHOULD MAKE A MORE CONCERTED
EASTWARD PUSH TONIGHT...WITH LOW CLOUDS LIKELY REACHING
GRB/ATW/MTW AFTER MIDNIGHT.

&&

.GRB WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
NONE.
