area forecast discussion
national weather service duluth mn
341 pm cdt Wed oct 16 2019

Short term (this evening through Thursday night)
issued at 341 pm cdt Wed oct 16 2019
northwesterly flow aloft, in combination with some weak to neutral
temperature advection at 850mb, and an upper level impulse to
generate plenty of cloud cover across the area. Pockets of rain
showers were also occurring, especially over the arrowhead. High
pressure at the surface has kept winds relatively light.

Tonight, an upper level short wave trof will move over the region in
the continued northwest flow aloft. Additional upper level impulses
are progged to move over the area. The high pressure remains in
charge at the surface. Moisture below 2k feet is marginal for
precipitation. Model ensembles including the SREF and GEFS suggest
a dry forecast for tonight and have followed.

Upper level ridging covers the forecast area Thursday, a southwest
flow underneath the ridge, with warm air advection in the afternoon
points toward warmer MAX temps and more moisture. However, a
southeast surface wind precludes a good bump up in temps, which has
occurred in the recent past. Ensembles also indicate wind speeds
will be held in check.

Long term (Friday through Wednesday)
issued at 341 pm cdt Wed oct 16 2019
the main forecast concerns for the long term continue to involve
a warming trend Friday into the weekend and the potential for a
low pressure system to bring strong winds and precipitation to
the region early next week.

A high amplitude mid- and upper-level ridge will slide farther
east into the great lakes region Thursday night and Friday while
a shortwave trough develops over the northern plains and canadian
prairies. The trough will support a surface low over southern
manitoba by Friday evening with a weak cool front extending
farther south into the upper midwest. There is a small chance of
rain showers Friday night and early Saturday morning with the
passing system. Boundary layer mixing should continue through
much of Thursday night, which will buoy temperatures in the
middle 30s to low 40s. Have trended temps above the consensus
blend for Friday with warm air aloft and efficient mixing.

Temperatures will reach the low 50s in the high terrain of the
sawtooth mountains to the low 60s in north-central and central
minnesota east into portions of northwest wisconsin. Wind speeds
were adjusted slightly higher, too. A little cooler, but still
higher than the consensus blend for Saturday as efficient mixing
is expected once again. Overnight lows will be in the low to
middle 40s with highs in the middle 50s to around 60 degrees.

Attention then shifts to a low pressure system which will take
shape in the central plains and lift into northern minnesota and
adjacent areas of northwest ontario from early Sunday morning
through Tuesday. Several differences in the timing, strength, and
track of the low are found between the long range models.

Confidence is high that precipitation will affect the northland,
with some combination of rain, thunderstorms, and snow likely. At
this time it seems the trend is for less snow and more rain with
each successive model run, and any accumulation will likely be
relegated to elevated or grassy surfaces. Keep up to date with
the latest forecast through the weekend as details regarding this
system are refined.

Aviation (for the 18z tafs through 18z Thursday afternoon)
issued at 105 pm cdt Wed oct 16 2019
high pressure will influence the region through the TAF period,
which will lead to light winds this afternoon and calm winds
overnight into Thursday. Clouds will linger through the TAF period
with MVFR ceilings expected this afternoon and early evening. Most
short term model guidance suggests that ceilings will rise toVFR
around or soon after 00z this evening, though MVFR ceilings will
likely remain at inl for the entire period. Ceilings may lower to
MVFR again late tonight.

Marine
Issued at 341 pm cdt Wed oct 16 2019
a building ridge of high pressure will limit wind speeds over the
waters during the next 48 hours. Hazardous conditions are not
expected. An area of low pressure is forecast to move from the
central plains through the upper midwest and across northeast
ontario Sunday night through Tuesday. A period of stronger winds
is likely and may result in conditions hazardous for smaller
vessels.

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.
