Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 357 am cdt Thu jun 29 2017
it is a quiet morning across the upper midwest, with thunderstorms
still rumbling across the central plains and mid mississippi valley.

The quiet weather will continue here until a mid level wave on water
vapor imagery over western south dakota this morning slides east to
minnesota by this evening. Modest mixed layer instability should
limit the overall thunderstorm threat through tonight, and models
are struggling to develop anything too organized. Therefore,
maintained chc pops beginning late this afternoon across western and
southern mn, spreading east to wi overnight.

Otherwise, partly to mostly cloudy skies will prevail with
temperatures near normal.

Long term (Friday through Wednesday)
issued at 357 am cdt Thu jun 29 2017
cool and unstable weather continues into the holiday weekend as a
mid level trough pivots over the upper midwest. We then dry out
and warm up at the beginning of next week over all but possibly
locations along i-90 as western ridging works toward the central
conus and a mid-level trough skirts the area to the south.

Friday looks to feature cyclonic flow and attendant scattered
showers and thunderstorms, along with the passage of a weak cold
front. Shear and instability progs are limited, so do not expect
severe storms, although a few stronger ones could produce small
hail.

Given the cool northwest flow and relatively low heights,
Saturday temperatures will top out in the low mid 70s. Sunday we
moderate into the upper 70s to mid 80s prior to the passage of a
secondary cold front. The better chances for showers and
thunderstorms will be on Sunday eve from south central mn across
west central wi, given the frontal position at time of peak
heating.

The boundary looks to dwell south of the area through the
beginning of the upcoming week. This will mean a good probability
of dry weather for us, along with warming temps as the western
ridge builds toward the central conus. The fourth of july will
feature near-normal highs in the upper 70s to mid 80s, with
continual moderating into Thursday of next week, when highs in
the 85 to 90 degree range are expected.

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.
