area of light fzdz continue to move to the east tonight. Will
impact the pkd and bji areas over the next couple hours. Patchy
icy roads are possible and have been reported by the public and
mndot. As winds turn to the west pcpn ends as does the weak lift.

stratus coverage overnight and any fog developing overnight will
be the main issue for the period.
Stratus continues to hang on across the red river valley, although
some clearing has been going on in west central portions of our
counties and continues in the east. There is more stratus coming
in from the northwest behind the surface trough, so think overall
we will be fairly cloudy overnight. High 925-850mb relative
humidity levels move eastward, so eventually think the stratus
will ooze back to the east and northwestern mn counties again
will be cloudy. Most of the short range models have any fog
formation on the western edge of the stratus, which should remain
to our west overnight. Kept any fog mention out for now. The
clouds should keep us mild overnight and kept lows in the teens.
Northwest flow with several weak shortwaves moving through. One
such shortwave has been helping to produce some flurries across
portions of the cwa, and another shortwave will approach from
canada late tonight tomorrow morning. Think the best chances for
any measurable snow will be in the far northeastern counties, with
flurries elsewhere. Anything will be extremely light and low
impact. Think there will be at least some breaks in the clouds
later tomorrow, so have highs in the 20s to approaching 30 degrees
in the southwest.|
Long term (Wednesday night through Tuesday)

models continue showing general agreement through the extended
period and will keep a blended soln for this forecast package... With
the main focus on a generally progressive weather pattern through
For Wednesday night through Friday... Look for the upper level ridge
to shift east over the forecast area. Return flow as the surface
high retreats into the lower ohio valley will allow for a slow
warming trend... With most areas reaching the freezing mark or better
on Thursday and Friday ahead of the next system.
For Friday night... A surface low pressure system is forecast to
cross the region. Moisture is limited with the system... But some
light precipitation can be expected. Behind the low... Cooler
temperatures will prevail for a day or so... But overall trend is to
stay near seasonal norms. Temps will rebound again for the end of
the period... With temps remaining near or slightly above normal.
Little precipitation is forecast for the end of the period.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
