I messed up again and just now published a road trip forecast from yesterday. Oops! I messed it up, so you know I didn’t just write it now! *sigh*
At 1235AM, CT, Janesville was reporting light rain and a temperature of 71. A cold front sliced across Wisconsin, but shower and thunderstorm activity was on it’s way to collapsing for the night, and only light drizzle continued in Janesville. Heavier storms were still being seen up near Oshkosh, suggesting a little bit of instability left ahead of the front.
The upper level flow is very weak and well to the north, so the frontal passage is likely to go unnoticed through Janesville overnight tonight. Instead, a ridge of surface high pressure across the country will couple with a thermal trough that will grow to encompass a broad section of the southwestern Plains as well. This will open the Gulf and moisture as well as thunderstorms across the central Plains, some which may reach Janesville, particularly Sunday morning but generally, the next two days will be sunny, or at the very least partly cloudy.

And a look at radar shows how weak those showers are over Janesville are. Can’t even see em!
