Short term (today through Wednesday)
issued at 304 am cdt Tue mar 26 2019
high pressure will retreat to the east today. Latest satellite
showing fair amount of high clouds over the western CWA this
morning. Expect this trend to continue much of the day with clouds
increase from the west into tonight. Low level WAA pattern ahead
of the incoming surface front should increase winds to the west
overnight and over much of the area into at least Wednesday
morning. We should see temperatures respond with sunshine expected
to the east anyway, with some lower 50s expected. Tonights lows
should drop off too far with southerly winds increasing along with
cloud cover, especially after midnight to the west and south. We
should see readings around 40 southwest and low mid 30s to the
northeast.

Surface front moves into eastern mn by late afternoon. We are
expecting a decent thermal ridge bisecting the mn portion of the
cwa. Potential highs of 65 to 70 are possible, especially to the
southwest where we expect clouds to be thinnest into the
afternoon. Shower chances remain limited. Probably more of accas
type activity to the northeast of the incoming front in the waa
pattern. Forcing other than that is rather weak. Will keep any pop
mention to the northeast of i-94. Southerly winds should gust
near 30 mph ahead of the front and gradually drop off as the front
approaches.

Long term (Wednesday night through Monday)
issued at 304 am cdt Tue mar 26 2019
Wednesday night through Friday night... On the backside of a
sweeping cold front, ahead of which produced a strong warm surge
across the WFO mpx coverage area on Wednesday, noticeable cold
air advection will bring temperatures back down closer to normal
values for the latter portion of the workweek. A secondary cold
front looks to pass through the region during the day on Friday.

At the same time, a potent low pressure system developing over the
tx ok panhandle region will shift northeast into the ohio valley.

This system will come close enough and interact with the
secondary cold front to produce scattered rain showers over far
southern and eastern portions of the coverage area during the day
Friday. These showers will then mix with and change over to snow
showers Friday night for south-central and southeast mn into
western wi, but they will be of very little consequence due to the
sparse coverage, quick duration, and little moisture available.

Highs on Thursday will drop to the 40s and lower 50s followed by
highs only in the low-mid 40s on Friday.

Saturday through Monday... Benign weather will continue through the
weekend into early next week with high pressure back in control
and no significant disturbances in the upper levels. After
high temperatures dip below normal into the the 30s area-wide on
Saturday, a warming trend is expected going into early next week
with highs in the 40s Sunday and Monday.

Aviation (for the 06z tafs through 06z Tuesday night)
issued at 1134 pm cdt Mon mar 25 2019
the chance for some MVFR fog late tonight at axn seems to be
decreasing, with such dry air in the low levels. Short term models
have become less bullish on this. Patch of stratocu in south
central mn has been sinking southward but will make a return later
Tuesday as winds shift to southerly on the backside of the
retreating high pressure system. Finally, abundant mid level
clouds, and eventually lower level clouds, will move in to western
mn tomorrow afternoon with weak trough.

Kmsp... No additional concerns expected.

Outlook for kmsp
wed...VFR. Winds SW 15g30 kts.

Thu...VFR. Winds NW 5-10 kts.

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.
