Rain Chances Leading up to Late Week System

Sep 17 2018 4:30 PM CST| 0 Comments | Wisconsin | Weather Forecasting


Rain will be possible Monday night through Tuesday night. Overall confidence in placement and timing is low. For now have simply mentioned the chance and left things vague. Want to emphasize the late week system when impacts will be relatively more widespread.

Late Week System

Can you consider Wednesday "late week"? Oh well. By Wednesday night a low pressure system will move in bringing the best chance for widespread rain statewide. On Thursday the system moves through. Widespread rainfall amounts Wednesday PM through Friday AM could exceed 2" across northern Wisconsin.

In addition to widespread rain...strong/severe thunderstorms are possible Thursday afternoon/evening. The low will drag a cold front through Wisconsin deepening quickly to the northeast. 50kt+ veered bulk shear, 2K+ SBCAPE. The timing is favorable for severe weather but sometimes systems slow down OR don't become organized until later. The potential is there for severe thunderstorms.
