Marine Weather and Tides
10/6/2018 Colors of tide XTide graphs changed to emphasize that they were upgraded. See next note. Comments welcome.
10/4/2018 I have fixed XTide and updated the harmonic files. There were some name changes so you might have to click EDIT to find the new station name.

we have cancelled the dense fog advisory since visibility has
improved in cass county. Updated pops to reflect ongoing flurries
in the arrowhead and portions of north-central wisconsin.
Short term (today through Tuesday)
issued at 344 am cdt Mon mar 18 2019
a mix of clear and cloudy skies have developed over the
northland, along with some patchy fog in spots as well,
particularly in areas of enhanced radiational cooling due to the
clear skies. Radar imagery is showing some enhanced returns
between international falls and hibbing as a mid-level shortwave
impulse continues to sweep through the region. The high-resolution
models have struggled simulating this reflectivity. Area webcams
in those areas show a burst of light snow falling, so have
increased to chance pops and increased the snow amounts as well.
Snow accumulation along the international border region south to
duluth could see a few tenths up to a half inch of accumulation
with this snow. These chances of snow will slowly diminish after
sunrise today as surface high pressure builds across the central
great plains states. The high pressure ridge, and associated
subsidence per the thaler QG omega progs, should bring a period of
partly to mostly sunny skies over much of the northland. This
should allow highs today to warm to the middle to upper 30s across
the northland, slightly above average for this time of the year.
The influence from the high pressure will be brief as a compact
shortwave trough will dive southward over the dakotas late this
afternoon through tonight, which will increase lift over the
region, supporting more chances of precipitation. For now, we have
pops increasing over koochiching county late this afternoon,
mainly in the form of light rain, mixing with snow this evening,
and expanding southeastward. These pops may be a little too early
as the NAM and the rap model soundings show a good bit of dry air
in the low-levels, which could inhibit the onset of the
precipitation. However, there is better agreement that this dry
air will eventually be overcome this evening and overnight due to
top-down saturation, so have more widespread small pops over
northeast minnesota. Once again, a coating to perhaps a few tenths
of an inch of snow will be possible.
Cloud cover will be a bit more robust during the day Tuesday as
some warm air advection will increase on southwest flow. Highs on
Tuesday could warm well into the 40s over northwest wisconsin,
with lower 40s elsewhere. For now, there isn't a strong signal for
precipitation for Tuesday, but cannot rule it our completely.
Confidence is much higher for some partly to mostly cloudy skies.
Long term (Tuesday night through Sunday)|
issued at 231 am cdt Mon mar 18 2019
the extended period continues to look mostly dry, with a warming
trend into next weekend.
A shortwave may bring some light snow or light rain to far
northern minnesota into northern wisconsin Tuesday night and over
a portion of far northeast minnesota Wednesday. Any accumulation
will be quite light. After this time, an upper ridge will slowly
move east reaching the northland Friday Friday night. The ecmwf
remains slower moving the upper ridge into the area and also
moving it east of the area over the weekend. Most areas will be
dry Wednesday into Saturday. High temperatures during this time
will be in the lower to middle forties on Wednesday but warm to
into the lower to middle fifties on Saturday. Overnight lows will
still drop below freezing each night, slowing the snowmelt some.
The GFS continues to push the upper ridge east Saturday night
into Sunday quicker than the ecmwf. The GFS then brings an upper
trough over the region on Sunday along with a surface low. Light
rain will be possible if the GFS solution ends up verifying.
However, the upper ridge may end up being tougher to displace than
the GFS is forecasting. We do have chances for precipitation
Saturday night into Sunday for now.
Aviation (for the 12z tafs through 12z Tuesday morning)
issued at 650 am cdt Mon mar 18 2019
conditions varied across the northland this morning from lifr to
vfr. A shortwave will exit the region this morning with an area of
light snow or flurries moving out of the area with it. The snow
was mainly over northeast minnesota early this morning. There was
fog occurring in spots, mainly over northern minnesota and price
county in wisconsin and both low ceilings and visibility will
occur through mid to late morning. Scattered to brokenVFR clouds
will then occur from late afternoon into the evening for most
areas. Another shortwave will bring moreVFR or MVFR ceilings to
the area tonight and possibly some light snow or flurries.

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.
