Marine Weather and Tides
Angle Inlet, MN

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

643 pm cdt Sun may 20 2018

Issued at 632 pm cdt Sun may 20 2018
quiet evening across the northern plains with sfc high pressure
and clear skies. Expecting temps to fall into the mid 40s for much
of the area. Across the east a few upper 30s are possible as met
guidance suggests which also handled the cooler spots well this
morning. Frost not expected to be an issue or impact.

Short term (this evening through Monday)
issued at 308 pm cdt Sun may 20 2018
temperatures and if any showers will reach our far south tomorrow
morning will be the main issue for the period.

Split flow aloft continues with a weak upper low to our south over
sd neb and northern branch ridging over our cwa. Surface high
pressure has kept us clear with light winds today, and highs are
in the upper 60s and low 70s as expected. The center of the
surface high will move off to the east tonight. Some nearly calm
winds may be possible in the eastern counties closer to the center
of the high. Met guidance has temps in the eastern tier getting
into the upper 30s, and recent mornings have been running a bit
colder than guidance. However, do think there will be a bit more
cloud cover as the weak shortwave wobbles into eastern sd, and
will keep lows above frost advisory criteria. Further west, temps
will be well into the 40s as winds start to shift southeastward
and mixing increases.

Some of the global models bring some showers into our far southern
cwa tomorrow morning as the upper low moves into southern mn.

However, the cams have most everything staying south, and given
that current radar trends have showers fizzling as they move north
of sioux city, will lean towards the drier solution. Have some
extremely low pops in grant county to blend with neighboring
offices, but think that little more than sprinkles will reach the
ground. Southeast winds will pick up just a bit tomorrow. Most
spots will be in the 70s although the southeastern counties could
stay in the upper 60s thanks more cloud cover and influence from
the weak upper low.

Long term (Monday night through Sunday)
issued at 308 pm cdt Sun may 20 2018
a continuation of dry weather stretches into Monday night as a
dominant upper ridge over WRN canada limits moisture with sfc high
pressure over the northern tier. This pattern begins to break down
by mid week as an upper low over cntrl ca moves into the az nv ut
tri-border area and weak SW flow sets up into the dakotas. This
creates a more unsettled period in the wed-sat timeframe, however
main challenge will be timing short wave troughs into the
cwa... Where models struggle with consistency, as expected. There
will be periods with some chances of shra tsra across mainly the
southern and western zones through thu... With a bit more widespread
coverage Thu night and Friday. Eastern zones begin to settle down
sat evening as system moves into grt lks. Sunday once again looks
dry. Afternoon highs next week will see the mercury climb into the
80s with Thursday looking the warmest... Especially across the
southern valley where temps should be just below the 90 mark.

Aviation (for the 00z tafs through 00z Monday evening)
issued at 632 pm cdt Sun may 20 2018
light winds and skc for much of the overnight. Light southerly
winds develop tomorrow, 5 to 10kts. There will be increasing high
and mid clouds across the south tomorrow morning.

Fgf watches warnings advisories

Mn... None.

NOTE: East coast views moved to GEOS-16. They are experimental and not well supported by NOAA so they may not be correct so be warned. This change required redoing a large amount of the GOES code.

If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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 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.
