Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN 534 PM CST Tue Jan 28 2020

Updated for 00Z Aviation Discussion. Issued at 529 PM CST Tue Jan 28 2020

SHORT TERM. (This evening through Wednesday night) Issued at 305 PM CST Tue Jan 28 2020

The light snow/flurries that began overnight has stuck around with most of MN reporting light snow/flurries. Visibility restrictions with the snow have minor impacts with most stations reporting 4 miles or greater. The light snow should begin to taper off this evening for the Twin Cities metro.

Model guidance has trended weaker/drier with the disturbance that will move into western MN tonight. Dry air aloft in the mid levels will limit the potential for light snow, but it cannot be completely ruled out.

As the pattern stagnation continues the stratus deck will remain in place. With no significant airmass change for Wednesday, look for temperatures Wednesday to only be a couple of degrees warmer than what we see this afternoon. Wednesday evening presents another chance for light snow/flurries in central MN as the parade of weak waves continue to pivot through.

LONG TERM. (Thursday through Tuesday) Issued at 305 PM CST Tue Jan 28 2020

There was little change in the long term forecast period again today, with no significant weather systems noted, and even more mild temperatures on the way to start off the month of February.

On Thursday and Friday, a mid-level low will be rotating across the Upper Midwest. Weak lift will likely generate light snow, although given limited moisture any accumulations would most likely be an inch or less each day. Given we will be transitioning to a more mild airmass, will also need to monitor the threat for freezing drizzle, but at this point have kept an all-snow mention.

For the weekend, the southwest ridge builds into the central CONUS. We expect temperatures to moderate well into the 30s for highs, with lower 40s still possible on Sunday. There's a fairly low model spread on forecast highs for Sunday, with only about a 4 degree difference between the 25th and 90th percentiles. Therefore confidence in 35-40 degree max temps is fairly high.

Above normal temperatures look to persist into Monday, but come crashing down on Tuesday as a trough over the Rockies begins to eject into the central CONUS. Right now the main track for this system looks to be mostly south of the forecast area, but southern MN into west central WI could end up being on the northern fringes of the measurable snowfall.

AVIATION. (For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Wednesday evening) Issued at 529 PM CST Tue Jan 28 2020

MVFR/IFR conditions throughout. Winds will be light, so the low stratus will continue. Could see a few light snow showers overnight as well, especially at KRWF and KAXN.

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.
