Short term (this evening through Friday night)
issued at 255 pm cst Thu dec 13 2018
a weak surface trough will continue progressing eastward through
mn and wi this evening with an upper-level trough following
closely behind. While this will help eliminate 925-500mb moisture,
forecast trends indicate that boundary layer moisture will remain
abundant. With an inversion in place and light winds, freezing
fog will likely develop across south central mn, east central mn,
and west central wi overnight. Fog will gradually erode on Friday
with mostly sunny conditions expected for the afternoon. High
pressure will build into the eastern great lakes region on Friday
and allow for mild conditions with high temperatures in the 30s.

Freezing fog will be possible again on Friday night with mostly
clear skies, light winds and stout inversion atop the boundary
layer.

Long term (Saturday through Thursday)
issued at 255 pm cst Thu dec 13 2018
the extended period looks to be mild and benign with the main jet
remaining to our north most of the time. We may be able to eclipse
40 across portions of the area a couple of times, but with such
limited insolation at this time of year we could also just be
sitting beneath an inversions with temperatures in the middle to
upper 30s. Good southwest flow will be in place Saturday, but there
is minimal moisture return so we won't see any precipitation
develop. A surface trough will push through Saturday night, with
mild and dry west to northwest flow on Sunday. A weak surface ridge
looks to slide across the region on Monday, with continued dry
weather. Southwesterly flow will return Tuesday. A cold front will
eventually push through the area on Wednesday, but at this point the
main forcing from its associated shortwave trough looks to pass by
to our north, keeping things dry across our area. A narrow ridge of
high pressure looks to work into the area on Thursday before the
next shortwave trough drops southeast toward the area Friday into
Saturday with what currently looks like a small chance to bring some
light snow.

Aviation (for the 18z tafs through 18z Friday afternoon)
issued at 1129 am cst Thu dec 13 2018
stratus and fog remain widespread across the area. Conditions are
expected to gradually improve through the afternoon and evening
from west to east as cloud cover clears and fog erodes behind a
front. This front will also cause 5-10 kts winds to become
northwesterly today. Winds will become light overnight with the
possibility of fog developing again. Axn and stc will likely stay
clear of the fog and remainVFR overnight into Friday. Any fog
that does develop overnight should clear out by late Friday
morning.

Kmsp... Ifr conditions are expected to remain in place through the
afternoon due to cloud cover and fog. Conditions are expected to
improve tonight behind a front with a brief period ofVFR likely
tonight. Fog may develop again Friday morning, leading to MVFR
conditions. The denser fog and ifr conditions will likely
remain to the south and east of msp.

Outlook for kmsp
sat...VFR with MVFR possible. Winds S 5-10 kts.

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

Mon...VFR. Winds NW becoming SW 5-10 kts.

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.
