Short term (today through Tuesday)
issued at 405 am cdt Mon may 27 2019
exiting upper shortwave trough along with a few elevated
baroclinic zones still producing light showers over parts of our
cwa (northern and southern cwa). The northern showers should
transition east with shortwave ridging building southeast into
our CWA this morning, while showers may continue to linger into
the afternoon across our south or southeast. Trend will be for
better coverage to be south of our cwa, and consensus of models
reflects this. Some high resolution guidance does reflect better
forcing possibly rotating back into our southeast late this
morning midday and moderate rain amounts being possible. Dry
conditions should return to our entire CWA this afternoon and
storm track will continue to favor dry conditions through Tuesday
afternoon.

Regarding temperatures: extensive opaque cloud cover will tend to
dampen daytime heating while limiting diurnal cooling. Expect
highs today in the 60s though 70f in the northern rrv isn't out of
the question if there is clearing. Where cloud cover is thicker
and showers more likely to continue upper 50s are more likley.

Skies should become mostly sunny Tuesday, with rising
heights moderating temps aloft all supporting temps near 70 to even
mid 70s in the northern red river valley.

Long term (Tuesday night through Sunday)
issued at 405 am cdt Mon may 27 2019
for Tuesday night through early Thursday, dry and warmer summer like
weather is expected for the majority of the forecast area as the
region becomes increasingly under the influence of dry air and
ridging aloft. Daily high temperatures for the second half of the
week will be generally in the 70s with potential for a few locations
to see the 80s on any given day. The exception may be for portions
of the far southern rrv and west central mn, which remain on the
northern periphery of the influence of the central plains system,
lending to increased cloud cover and chances for showers for Tuesday
night and Wednesday in this region. This occurs as the forecast area
remains juxtaposed between northwest flow aloft, prompted by a
closed upper low over the hudson bay and strong ridging over the
canadian rockies, and a southern stream closed low meandering
eastward across NE and ia toward the great lakes.

For Thursday afternoon through early Saturday, uncertainty in the
forecast begins to increase as there is decent model agreement in a
clipper system tracking from the canadian rockies to the great
lakes. For Thursday afternoon and evening, several deterministic
solutions suggest dew points in the 50s coupled with a narrow axis
of weak instability along a surface heating boundary extending from
west central mn northwest toward southwest mb. While there is a very
limited window for this to occur, this setup indicates potential for
strong daytime heating to prompt a few Thursday afternoon
thunderstorms. For Friday through early Saturday, closer proximity
of the surface low suggests higher chances for showers and
thunderstorms. Recent deterministic model runs suggest forecast area
positioning in the warm sector of the surface low, which would yield
potential for weak to moderate instability and deep layer shear for
portions of the region on Friday afternoon and evening. Confidence
in the tracking of these precise features and stronger upper level
winds is low at this point but will continue to be monitored
throughout the week.

Aviation (for the 06z tafs through 06z Monday night)
issued at 1037 pm cdt Sun may 26 2019
vfr to MVFR conditions prevail through much of the overnight with
cigs lowering after sunrise. An upper low will keep cloud cover
over much of the region throughout Monday with MVFR prevailing
conditions for kfar, and kbji through much of the day. Kdvl, kgfk,
and ktvf should see some improvement through the early afternoon
with conditions improving late Monday evening for the remaining
taf sites. Winds are expected to remain out of the east to
northeast at 5 to 15 knots through the TAF period.

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.
