SHORT TERM. (This evening through Wednesday night) Issued at 244 PM CST Tue Dec 10 2019

Arctic high pressure sits over the central CONUS this afternoon and is the main weather feature of discussion in the short-term. It will move little over the next 36 hours, becoming reinforced tomorrow as a weak low pressure center moves southeast from the Dakotas across Iowa overnight. The main difference from this time is in the location of the high and how it will play into temperatures through tomorrow. Highs today have ranged from the single digits below zero to the single digits above zero, and this is with clear skies all day. As the high moves overhead, winds will diminish (not completely) and lead to good radiational cooling conditions. The only exception may be far southern MN where the aforementioned low pressure center drifts through the region, potentially producing some isolated/scattered snow showers around the I-90 corridor. Not looking for any significant snowfall, even little-to-no accumulation. With clear skies expected through the rest of the WFO MPX coverage area, will look for lows tonight to bottom out in the single digits below zero in far southern MN and in the negative double digits for the vast majority of the coverage area. With winds will in the 6-12mph range overnight, wind chills will drop to -25 deg F to -35 deg F for much of the coverage area, specifically north of a line from Redwood Falls to Mankato to Owatonna. As such, we have dropped the Wind Chill Advisory one row of counties south for tonight.

The high pressure area will then regain control over the area tomorrow, leading to another day of mostly clear skies but cold conditions as highs range from 0 to +10 deg F. Clouds will increase late Wednesday through Wednesday night in response to another low pressure center developing over the Dakotas which will again move into Iowa. This system is more organized with more moisture so there is higher confidence in having minor snow accumulations from this system late Wednesday night into Thursday. PoPs have been increased to the 40-50% range. In addition, with the increase cloud cover and more southerly low level flow in advance of this system, lows on Wednesday night will run in the single digits above and below zero.

LONG TERM. (Thursday through Tuesday) Issued at 244 PM CST Tue Dec 10 2019

The long term period commences with ongoing light snow in central to northern MN, with a shortwave trough exiting the area eastwards by Thursday evening. Snow is expected to remain only a couple of inches at the most, with the best chance at more in western Wisconsin as the system departs the 2nd half of the day. A period of warming during the day on Thursday alongside the precipitation will see highs returning to the mid teens to low 20s before dropping back into the low teens overnight. A weak cold front moving through the area on Friday will bring a chance for some cosmetic light snow, with accumulations remaining sparse as the front quickly passes through the region.

Another bout of arctic air moves into the area the 2nd half of Saturday through Sunday as a weak ridge forces us into northwesterly flow aloft once again with surface high pressure quickly passing through as well. This will thankfully be short- lived, with single digit highs on Sunday rebounding into the teens to low 20s to start next week. Beyond this, we continue to see fluctuations in the 7-10 day range with some models hinting at another cold spell while others keep us more moderate heading into mid December.

AVIATION. (For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Wednesday night) Issued at 1047 PM CST Tue Dec 10 2019

VFR conditions with increasing mid level clouds on Wednesday. Light southwest winds overnight will become northwesterly by morning, and then switch back to the south and eventually southeast for Wednesday evening ahead of the next system that will bring light snow Wednesday night. The heaviest snow and highest potential for IFR conditions is at KAXN, KSTC, KRNH, and KEAU.

KMSP . VFR conditions with a few mid level clouds. Light southwest winds overnight will become northwesterly by morning, and then switch back to the south and eventually southeast for Wednesday evening ahead of the next system that will bring light snow Wednesday night. Snow will probably arrive around 06-09Z, and be heaviest around 09-13Z. Expect relatively light snow, with rates of 1/4 to 1/2 inches per hour.

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.
