Short term (this evening through Wednesday)
issued at 416 pm cdt Tue mar 19 2019
relatively balmy day across the area this afternoon with
temperatures in the upper 30s to mid 40s and a southwest wind as
of 3pm. Low stratus from earlier today has been gradually mixed
out, with only a small puddle of it north and west of kinl, but
with still more to the southwest over southeast north dakota and
south dakota. There is a weak trough axis in the general location
of where the stratus was this morning, with another stronger
feature and shortwave aloft that should move across the area
tonight and Wednesday morning. The models have been very
aggressive with stratus and precipitation formation tonight in the
vicinity of this feature, which was overdone last night, and while
i have clouds moving into the forecast area later this evening
along with a chance of precipitation, am not very confident in it
actually forming. With that, overnight lows from guidance are also
on the warm side, and have lowered those in case less cloud cover
forms. This forecast will be too warm in case clouds do not form,
but hopefully are in the right direction. Once this feature moves
out Wednesday morning, we should get some clearing skies during
the afternoon with temperatures getting up into the lower to
middle 40s. Again, if there is less cloud cover in the morning, it
will be warmer than what I have forecast.

Long term (Wednesday night through Tuesday)
issued at 416 pm cdt Tue mar 19 2019
Thursday there is another of these shortwaves forecast to dive
through the area, but it's track is farther east, and with the
airmass getting progressively drier, I expect mostly clouds with
that and maybe some sprinkles along the canadian border. With the
generally dry airmass in place and some sunshine, temperatures
away from the clouds will rise into the 40s once again. Friday a
large ridge of high pressure builds in, and with light winds and
sunshine temperatures should rise into the 40s as well.

Saturday the ridge slides off to the east, and with the southerly
flow and existing airmass, temperatures should approach 50. For
reference, the last time the high temperature at duluth was above
50 was october 24th, at 52 degrees.

That kind of warmth does not last long this time of year, so we
have an upper low poised to move across the central plains Sunday
and Monday, which may bring some chances for precipitation to the
area on Sunday and Sunday night, but there is a lot of variability
between models and from run to run, and do not have a lot of
confidence in this. Temperatures should cool off some, but will
still be seasonal for late march.

Aviation (for the 18z tafs through 18z Wednesday afternoon)
issued at 1258 pm cdt Tue mar 19 2019
a weak front approaching the area this afternoon has produced an
area of stratus that is affecting parts of NW mn, including kinl.

This stratus is slowly eroding even as it oozes east. Expect kinl
to remain MVFR ifr as this stratus area moves across the site.

Behind the front more MVFR stratus is expected to develop, and
will spread into the other terminals after 00z this evening. This
timing may be too fast as the stratus may develop right over the
area, and we will be monitoring for a possible update to slow the
development of the stratus. Once the MVFR stratus does develop, it
should spread east to affect all the terminals, and may lower to
ifr at times. Stratus is likely to linger through the end of 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.
