Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 320 am cdt Sat apr 29 2017
the main forecast challenge will be the strong weather system for
later Sunday through Monday. Until then, looking at fairly quiet
weather. For today there should be abundant sunshine with just
some thin cirrus around. Temps have responded well the past couple
of days to the strong sunshine, so went with the higher end of
temp guidance for today. The central plains surface low organizes
over kansas by 12z Sunday, bringing a little bit more cloud cover
to the southern fa tonight.

Long term (Sunday through Friday)
issued at 320 am cdt Sat apr 29 2017
with more cloud cover across the south and southeast fa on Sunday,
highs will be warmest to the north and northwest. Models seem a
little faster on bringing in some light rain to west central
minnesota Sunday afternoon. More substantial pcpn moves in by
Sunday night, with the ECMWF showing the most, but similar to the
gfs in where it falls. By 12z Monday, this would be south of a
line from lake of the woods to buxton to valley city. Coolest
925mb temps are restricted mainly to west central mn, which
continue into Monday morning as well. Latest wpc snowmap shows
the potential for more than 4 inches from elbow lake to park
rapids. GEFS ensembles show a potential for even more in this
area, but confidence is not as high in exactly where it could
fall. With our latest snowfall events, narrowing down where the
heavier bands set up have not occurred until closer to the event.

After coordinating with neighboring offices, have elected to hold
off on any headlines for now. Any remaining pcpn should exit off
to the east Monday night.

For Tuesday through Friday... A couple of weak 500 mb short waves
will move across the area once the large upper low has moved east.

This has been a consistent signal in all the models and worthy of
keeping low chance pops for rain showers. Warming up late week as a
500 mb ridge moves in. GFS mos temps for thu/fri are showing lower
70s in E nd vs the blended model soln of 65-70. Either way back to
more normal spring/early may weather.

These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. 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.
