SHORT TERM. (This evening through Monday) Issued at 205 PM CST Sun Dec 15 2019
At 2 PM, a 1024 mb surface high was centered over south-central Minnesota. This high was providing mostly to partly sunny skies across the Upper Mississippi River Valley. Where there was snow on the ground, temperatures ranged from 5 to 15F. Elsewhere, temperatures ranged from the mid teens to mid 20s.
For tonight, a shortwave trough will move southeast through the region. Meanwhile, further south another more vigorous shortwave trough will be ejecting east out the Central Plains. A band of weak to moderate 600 to 500 mb frontogenesis will develop across northeast Iowa and southwest Wisconsin after 16.08z. There will be enough saturation and forcing for scattered flurries and light snow to develop along and south of Interstate 90. The best chance of any snow accumulations will be in southern Grant County where snow totals will range from dusting to maybe a few tenths of an inch. With more cloud cover tonight than last night, low temperatures on Monday morning will not be quite as cold. They will be in the single digits below and above zero north of Interstate 94, and 5 to 15F elsewhere.
On Monday, the synoptic and frontogenetic forcing moves quickly southeast away from the region. With the soundings showing moisture becoming trapped under the subsidence inversion, kept the skies mostly cloudy. High temperatures will be in the teens northeast of a Charles City IA to Black River Falls, WI line and in the 20s across the remainder of the area.
LONG TERM. (Monday night through Sunday) Issued at 205 PM CST Sun Dec 15 2019
On Tuesday night and Wednesday, a shortwave trough will move southeast through the Great Lakes. At this time, it looks like the best chance of snow will stay northeast of the region.
As we approach the weekend, a ridge of high pressure will build east over the region. Like yesterday, the models have a shortwave trough on the leading edge of this ridge. However, its location remains uncertain. At this time, it looks like any precipitation will be east of the area. After a cold start to the week, high temperatures will be mainly in the 30s from Friday into the weekend.
AVIATION. (For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Monday afternoon) Issued at 1148 AM CST Sun Dec 15 2019
VFR conditions are expected through late afternoon then there could be brief visibility reductions in light snow tonight. If the snow impacts the TAF sites, plan on brief MVFR conditions. Otherwise, mid level clouds will overspread the region late this afternoon and evening. Ceilings could lower to MVFR during the morning on Monday as stratus moves in from the northwest.

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.
