Short term (this evening through Friday night)
issued at 338 pm cdt Thu mar 21 2019
the main concern continues to be ongoing and upcoming river
flooding. Luckily, conditions will be dry through the short-term and
temperatures will cool to below freezing tonight and Friday night.

The nightly below freezing temperatures will slow down the remnant
snowmelt.

Temperatures have warmed into the 40s this afternoon under sunny
skies. A cold front will shift southward through minnesota and
western mn this evening. Weak cold air advection will follow,
allowing winds to stay near 10 kts during the evening and early
overnight hours. Temperatures will cool below freezing and into the
20s again tonight.

Surface high pressure will settle over the northern plains on
Friday. This will allow for abundant sunshine, light winds, and
temperatures warming into the 40s. H925 temperatures will be
slightly cooler tomorrow afternoon, near -1c, so temperatures are
not as expected to be as warm as today. Nonetheless, model guidance
has been trending too low in daily high temperatures, so highs have
been raised slightly from the blended guidance. A few patches of
cumulus may develop Friday afternoon, but otherwise, skies will
remain mostly clear through Saturday morning. Low temperatures on
Saturday morning are expected to be in the 20s.

Long term (Saturday through Thursday)
issued at 338 pm cdt Thu mar 21 2019
the long term period will feature minimal appreciable QPF and a bit
of a roller coaster for temperatures.

Starting off Saturday we will have high pressure centered over the
western great lakes, leading to light southerly flow and warming
temperatures. A developing low pressure system will begin lifting
northeast from colorado, but the cloud shield with this system won't
reach our area until late Saturday night, so partly cloudy skies
with temperatures rising into the 50s are expected. Most of the
forcing with the system will lift into iowa by Sunday, with weak f-
gen reaching our area. With the high in place Saturday, and another
strong high dropping into our region from canada Monday, do not
expect much at all in terms of qpf. Continue to carry chance pops
for light rain Sunday, with cloudy skies a much more sure bet.

Early next week will be cooler than normal given northerly flow
behind the departing system. It won't last long however, as an
amplifying ridge builds in by midweek as southwesterly flow develops
locally. Deterministic models are hinting at a deep trough pushing
into the rockies near the end of the period. It will be worth
watching for the potential of a low pressure system to develop
toward the end of next week as a result.&&

cover is expected overnight in western wi but bkn ovc skies should

remain near 10 kts this evening before becoming light on Friday
morning.

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.
