updated aviation portion for 18z TAF issuance

Short term Today... Tonight... And Wednesday
issued at 326 am cdt Tue oct 16 2018
waa ahead of an approaching cold front was generating widespread
mid-level clouds over the forecast area, and a few flurries over
the far north. This cloud cover will shift east this morning,
but more clouds will overspread the region in the afternoon as
the cold front moves through. Gusty southwest winds will turn
west-northwest during the afternoon. High temperatures should
range from the middle 40s northwest to the lower 50s southeast.

A short-wave trof will move through northern wi and combine with
minor lake-enhancement to produce scattered snow showers over
north central and far northeast wi. A half inch to an inch of snow
is possible north of highway 8. Lows should drop into the upper
20s northwest, and lower to middle 30s southeast.

On Wednesday, any lingering snow showers in the far north
northeast should end by midday as a ridge of high pressure builds
into the region. Decreasing clouds are anticipated in the
afternoon as the ridge axis moves through. Gusty northwest winds
will develop by mid to late morning, and highs will only reach
the mid to upper 30s northwest and lower to middle 40s southeast.

Long term Wednesday night through Monday
issued at 326 am cdt Tue oct 16 2018
flow aloft is expected to be mainly from the northwest into early
next week. This will lead to below normal temperatures and
generally small amounts of precipitation. There will be a brief
period of warmer weather Thursday and Friday with southerly
surface flow and a shift to southwest upper flow as a closed 500
mb low ejects out of the southwest conus. Once a cold front and
mid level short wave pass it is back to colder weather in
northwest flow. The front will likely bring rain to the area
during the day on Friday.

A secondary cold front and another mid level short wave will
bring precipitation chances to the area on Saturday. Temperatures
across the north will be cold enough for snow or a mix of rain
and snow at times. Precipitation may linger into Saturday night
across the north in cyclonic flow at the surface and aloft.

Surface high pressure and a weak mid level ridge should keep the
forecast area generally dry Sunday through Monday.

Aviation For 18z TAF issuance
issued at 1132 am cdt Tue oct 16 2018
gusty west winds will continue this afternoon into early this
evening before winds gradually subside this evening. Lows
clouds between 2,500 and 4,000 feet across northern minnesota
into far northwest wisconsin will continue to spread southeast
this afternoon into early this evening and then continue
through the night into Wednesday. MVFR CIGS possible at times
across the north tonight into Wednesday morning. There is a chance
of snow showers later this evening into Wednesday morning across
far northern wisconsin. Snow accumulations of an inch or less are
expected, except across vilas county where locally higher amounts

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
