Short term (this evening through Thursday)
issued at 140 pm cst Wed nov 14 2018
a deepening area of low pressure will cross to the north of lake
superior - this will increase winds this evening and also bring a
threat for snow and possibly patchy freezing rain at precipitation
onset Thursday. QPF amounts are light with only a tad more than a
tenth of an inch of liquid equivalent expected which translates to
an inch or two of snowfall across northern mn. NW wi doesn't see
as much qpf, so snowfall amounts are only a 1 2 an inch there. In
the wake of this low, lake effect snow is likely over NW wi.
Added a marine section to the afd to highlight gales.
Long term (Thursday night through Wednesday)
issued at 140 pm cst Wed nov 14 2018
lake effect snow along the south shore of lake superior will be
the main forecast parameter to begin the long term. Northwest
winds will spark lake effect snow showers as they bring cold air
across the warm, big lake. However, the pressure gradient only
warrants a short period of these showers as the flow is quite
High pressure builds for Saturday and most of Sunday. A weak
trough of low pressure accompanying an upper level wave slides
through on Sunday night into Monday - again low qpf, but this will
bring a burst of cold air with lows dipping into the single digits
above below zero. Another clipper system mid week. Overall, a
fairly quiet forecast in terms of large systems.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
