Short term (this evening through Wednesday)
issued at 337 pm cdt Tue sep 25 2018
it has been another rainy, cloudy, cool afternoon across much of
the northland as a shortwave and wave of frontogenesis within the
broader upper level trough moves from southwest to northeast
across the eastern two thirds of the area. This feature will
continue to the east tonight, bringing an end to the precipitation
for most of the area by midnight. With the upper level trough
remaining over the area with another weak wave of moisture that
moves through have kept cloud cover high, and have even included
some sprinkles during the late night as this wave moves through.

Some models are spitting out some actual showers, but considering
how things look upstream on satellite and radar in the winnipeg
area, have limited them to sprinkles. Overnight lows should be
kept on the milder side with all that cloud cover, and have raised
mins enough to keep them in the mid to upper 30s. Wednesday
morning should be dry as a weak ridge axis slides through the
area, and we may see some clearing clouds. Our next
shortwave clipper marches across saskatchewan and manitoba towards
the forecast area during the day Wednesday, and models continue
to bring the leading edge of the precipitation into the forecast
area by late afternoon, and have included some chance pops in the
far northwest. Warm air advection ahead of this clipper should
allow temperatures to be warmer than today, with highs in the 50s
most locations, with only the very tip of the arrowhead staying in
the upper 40s.

Long term (Wednesday night through Tuesday)
issued at 337 pm cdt Tue sep 25 2018
the concern for the long term is the chance for a widespread
freeze, except along the lakeshore Friday night
the long term forecast period will be cool through the weekend with
warmer temperatures early next week. Also, it will be unsettled
weather with with chance for light rain possible for some of the
days.

A large upper trough will be located over the great lakes and
northern plains. A shortwave will move through the trough Wednesday
night and Thursday bringing a chance for light rain for the region
as there will be good moisture across the area. The shortwave moves
away from the region on Friday as cooler air continues to flow into
the forecast area. There will be some breaks in the clouds Friday
night as an area of high pressure builds into the region. However,
there could be enough low level moisture to keep the clouds
persisting longer. If there are longer breaks, temps will drop into
the upper 20s to lower 30s away from lake superior and will cause
a widespread freeze. Most areas except the borderland and hibbing
have not experienced a freeze so this may be their first freeze
this season. The highs on Saturday will be much below normal and
will mainly in the 40s to lower 50s.

A warm front will move north through mn Sunday causing rain to
develop Sunday into Sunday night. The threat for rain continues onto
Monday as the front will be in the vicinity. Being south of the
warm front means warmer temps and highs are expected in the middle
50s to lower 60s.

Aviation (for the 00z tafs through 00z Wednesday evening)
issued at 644 pm cdt Tue sep 25 2018
an upper level shortwave will move eastward across the region
tonight, with high pressure gradually working its way in overnight
and especially on Wednesday. We will see some lingering rain
showers this evening, along with some MVFR cig's. However, as the
night wears on, and especially on Wednesday, we will see
conditions largely becomeVFR. Westerly winds will be a bit gusty,
especially by mid to late morning.

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.
