Update For 06z aviation discussion

Short term (this evening through Wednesday)
issued at 145 pm cst Tue jan 23 2018
the main short term concern is clouds trends.

Band of low clouds remains over western mn this afternoon, ahead
of a developing warm front over the dakotas. This area of clouds
is expected to move and develop eastward tonight brining mostly
cloudy conditions to the region. There may a bit of light fog as
well as it moves over the state. Other than that, temperatures
will drop off into the teens most areas with some single digits to
the east before cloud envelop that region. Readings Wednesday may
be tempered somewhat and will be dependent on cloud and snow
cover.

Long term (Wednesday night through Tuesday)
issued at 145 pm cst Tue jan 23 2018
the main long term trends continue to indicate a warming trend
into the weekend. Then cold front progged over the area cooling
the region into early next week.

The flow pattern is becoming more progressive with a series of
frontal passages. We should warm as heights aloft rise for the
remainder of the week, with readings warming into the 40s for much
of the area Friday. It appears the initial cold front(more pacific
origin) moves through the area Saturday and could bring in a
small chance of snow Saturday night Sunday. The main issue will be
for much cooler air and brisk northwest winds for Sunday as the
upper trough moves over the area into Monday.

Following that, the faster west east flow continues with a
warming trend indicated again into midweek.

Aviation (for the 06z tafs through 06z Wednesday night)
issued at 1108 pm cst Tue jan 23 2018
stratus clouds will slowly expand eastward across the area
overnight, with sites becoming MVFR and even ifr. MVFR ceilings
will persist through most of Wednesday, with western sites (kaxn
and krwf) having the highest chance of seeing late afternoon
sunshine. Winds will generally be light and variable or light
west southwest through the period.

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.
