Update For 00z aviation discussion below

Short term (this evening through Friday)
issued at 353 pm cdt Thu jun 22 2017
cold front was just now making it into eastern mn, and clearing
has moved into west central and central mn behind the front. Upper
trough axis is expected to move across the area late tonight and
Friday morning, but main forcing will depart this evening. There
is some decent fgen across the area, and radar does indeed show
some bands of heavier precip. But the only thunder threat is
across south central into southeast mn, and even that should end
by early evening.

A fairly dense band of stratucu in manitoba and saskatchewan had
moved into northern nd and mt, associated with the upper low now
in central manitoba. As the low moves across northern ontario
tonight, northwest flow will bring the clouds over our area
tomorrow morning. Thus think that a large part of central mn into
wi will see plenty of clouds tomorrow. Southwest mn might escape
some of this, but even that is doubtful. Looks like mostly cloudy
and cool conditions tomorrow, and a bit blustery, especially in
western mn, but with some peeks of sun.

Long term (Friday night through Thursday)
issued at 353 pm cdt Thu jun 22 2017
little change to the long term period. The primary topic of
discussion continues to be the longwave trough taking hold over
eastern north america keeping us in cool northwesterly flow this
weekend, with bouts of showers and possibly a few weak
thunderstorms.

By tomorrow evening, the cooler airmass will be in place with the
main jet to our south. A shortwave trough will be in the process of
diving south across canada, headed for our area by Saturday. Given
the PV advection and steepening lapse rates due to upper level
height falls and diurnal heating, we should see showers develop,
with weak thunderstorms possible during the afternoon. Average
highs are now in the low 80s, but the weekend will be held in the
mid and upper 60s across the region.

Nothing really changes Sunday, more perturbations in the flow will
move through and we again have chances for showers and weak storms
under cyclonic flow aloft.

The western CONUS ridge looks to progress east by midweek, pushing
the trough well east of us and bringing warmer air back to the
region. Temperatures look to climb back to normal for late june
by the middle of the week.

Aviation (for the 00z tafs through 00z Friday evening)
issued at 630 pm cdt Thu jun 22 2017
showers will affect keau at the start of the period, and then
clouds will scatter out area-wide tonight. Cyclonic flow will
bring in a dense deck of stratocu clouds for Friday, with bkn-ovc
cigs around 5000 feet, and potentially a lower deck around
2500ft. Northwest winds will also become gusty on Thursday
morning, generally around 15-17kts with gusts to between 22-25kts.

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.
