Short term (this evening through Sunday night)
issued at 317 pm cdt Sat jul 20 2019
the main surface front separating oppressive heat humidity to the
south and cooler stable air to the north is now draped over
southern mi across the wi il border and continuing west through ia
and ne. This front will continue to drift off to the southeast
while a secondary cold front washes out over the area tonight into
Sunday morning. This will allow for any remaining areas of
showers thunderstorms to move away to the east and to have a
scouring out of moisture from the low-to-mid levels. Only high
clouds will then remain for tonight through tomorrow. A weak mid-
level disturbance will try to push east late day tomorrow into
tomorrow night, on the leading edge of an incoming ridge, so there
will be little upper support and moisture available to produce
any precipitation but a few isolated rain showers cannot be ruled
out over central mn. Temperatures will rebound back to the upper
70s to around 80 tomorrow.

Long term (Monday through Saturday)
issued at 317 pm cdt Sat jul 20 2019
finally a tranquil pattern will settle into place for the upper
midwest, lasting through the middle of next week. Sprawling high
pressure over southwestern canada will shift east southeast Sunday
into Monday, then settle over the north-central CONUS through
Wednesday. This will promote plenty of clear skies along with more
seasonable temperatures as highs run from the upper 70s to the mid
80s through midweek. An approaching low pressure system from the
western CONUS will shift across the area Thursday through
Saturday, with warm-sectoring expected Friday into Saturday which
would bring chances of showers thunderstorms back into the
forecast for the end of the week.

Aviation (for the 18z tafs through 18z Sunday afternoon)
issued at 129 pm cdt Sat jul 20 2019
thunderstorms have generally pushed south and east of all
terminals and will remain as such through this afternoon.VFR
conditions expected to prevail throughout. Clearing skies will
then follow tonight and remain through tomorrow. Winds will
eventually settle on an easterly direction with winds in the
15g25kt area this afternoon then go light variable late tonight
through tomorrow.

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 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.
