What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Short term (this evening through Monday)
issued at 424 pm cdt Sun jun 17 2018
subtle short wave has helped kick off storms from southwest mn
into east central mn and northwest wi. A cold front extended along
this area as well, and there is quite the temp and dew point
difference. Precipitable water values remain around two inches.

Winds aloft are not all that impressive, but the low level jet is
anticipated to strengthen by about 10-15 knots this evening per
several short term models. Front is projected to accrue more of an
ene-wsw orientation, and with storms continuing to develop to the
southwest, the concern is for storms to move across the same area
tonight. Several other factors are present as well, and some areas
could pick up several inches of rain. Thus issued a flash flood
watch in coordination with neighboring offices. Severe weather is
also a concern and while some storms have shown decent rotation
and updraft strength, there have not yet been any reports of
severe weather in our area.

Once the front moves through, abundant residual moisture and temps
dropping by 20-25 degrees should promote extensive cloud cover
later tonight and tomorrow morning.

Long term (Monday night through Sunday)
issued at 424 pm cdt Sun jun 17 2018
with upper low over hudson bay and upper high centered over the
southeast, upper flow over mn wi will mostly be zonal later
tomorrow, and then our area is affected by southwest flow from
the next upper low moving into the western states. Thus have
precip chances over most of the area through Tuesday night, though
probabilities will be on the low side. Western upper low will
slowly move east, and flow will become favorable for general lift
with any short waves, none of which appear to be very strong. Thus
have low chances for precip later Wednesday through the rest of
the week. Temperatures look seasonable for the week.

Aviation (for the 06z tafs through 06z Monday night)
issued at 1102 pm cdt Sun jun 17 2018
a cold front will slowly move through the region overnight with
northwest winds and MVFR, possibly ifr ceilings after is passes.

Expect some showers and thunderstorms to continue overnight, but
they should gradually shift southward. Ceilings should gradually
improve on Monday, withVFR conditions spreading from west to east
Monday afternoon.

Kmsp...

winds should remain northerly, with a few lingering showers and
thunderstorms overnight. Should see MVFR and possibly ifr
conditions overnight as low clouds move in. ExpectVFR conditions
to return Monday afternoon as winds become more northeasterly.

Outlook for kmsp
tue...VFR. Wind NE 10 kts.

Wed...VFR. Wind ene 10g15 kts.

Thu...VFR. Wind ese 10 kts.

NOTE: East coast views moved to GEOS-16. They are experimental and not well supported by NOAA so they may not be correct so be warned. This change required redoing a large amount of the GOES code.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
