SHORT TERM. (This evening through Tuesday night) Issued at 255 PM CDT Mon Apr 19 2021

Troughing across the north central CONUS will bring occasional chances for light precip during the short term forecast period, along with cool temperatures.

Temperatures will get chilly tonight as the stratus deck scours out and scattered flurries/sprinkles come to an end. Expect lows to dip into the low to mid 20s, which is around 10 degrees below climatological normals.

Cyclonic flow will bring a renewal of cloud cover on Tuesday, along with more shower chances as weak shortwave energy pivots across the area. Max layer wet bulb temperatures look to stay primarily below freezing to yield flurries/snow showers, but a transition to sprinkles/rain showers could occur during the afternoon as the wet bulb temp sneaks to around freezing and surface temps warm into the 40s.

Another cold night is expected on Tuesday night, with lows again dipping into the 20s.

LONG TERM. (Wednesday through Monday) Issued at 255 PM CDT Mon Apr 19 2021

One more chilly late April day is on tap for Wednesday before temperatures return to more seasonable readings. As a trough pivots through the region with its anomalously cold 850 and 500mb temps, a few rain/snow showers are possible Wednesday afternoon. These showers will primarily be across the eastern third of the forecast area and will wrap up into the evening hours as high pressure builds in. Highs take quite a leap from the low to mid 40s to near 60 Thursday. Most locales will start at or just below freezing in the morning as clearing skies overnight allow for better radiational cooling. Clear skies will remain in place for Thursday, making it the best weather day of the period.

Sadly, the clear skies will be relatively short-lived as our next system approaches late Thursday night into early Friday morning. A weak shortwave will bring a chance for showers through the overnight hours, but QPF totals are only a few hundredths of an inch. On the heels of this system, model guidance has come into better agreement with the placement of a cold front sweeping through Saturday morning. Northerly winds increase behind it with highs struggling to achieve low 50s. One final minor disturbance Sunday could allow for yet another round of showers, but left PoPs low for the time being.

The start of next week continues to look more active as a pattern change appears to be in the cards for the central CONUS. There remains a good amount of spread in the guidance with the ECMWF wanting to place a ridge from the Gulf of Mexico up to Canada, while the GFS is a little more conservative with more zonal flow in place for the northern plains. Beyond Monday, there is a little better agreement between them with the formation of a deep trough across the Rockies, which could set the stage for our next round of active weather.

AVIATION. (For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Tuesday afternoon) Issued at 1058 AM CDT Mon Apr 19 2021

The stratocu deck will bring mostly low-end VFR ceilings through this afternoon, with pockets of high-end MVFR ceilings and flurries/light snow showers. The deck will scatter out this evening. Northwest winds around 15 knots gusting to 25 knots will weaken to speeds below 10 knots this evening.

KMSP . Visibility/ceilings could briefly lower to around 5SM/2500FT with scattered flurries or even light snow showers this afternoon.
