SHORT TERM. (This evening through Thursday night) Issued at 351 PM CDT Wed May 27 2020
A very slow moving cold front has kept an area of rain showers parked over northwest Wisconsin east of Ashland and Hayward all day. There is a decent amount of MUCAPE just to the east of the front on the order of 1-2k J/kg over southern Price County, but without any significant lifting mechanisms ahead of the cold front itself, there hasn't been much activity aside from towering cumulus development. Therefore, not anticipating too much in the way of thunder activity this afternoon, though it certainly can't be ruled out. Elsewhere, skies have become clear except for some fair-weather cumulus clouds.
A secondary cold front will swing through tonight with an upper level trough passing through Thursday morning. The front will cause winds to become northwesterly and a bit breezy by Thursday afternoon as the pressure gradient tightens ahead of high pressure moving in from the west. There may also be clouds and a few very light showers associated with the upper level trough as it moves through Thursday morning, though with dry air working its way in, this may just amount to virga. Otherwise, clouds may hang on in northwest Wisconsin through the morning, but skies will become mostly sunny to partly cloudy with highs in the 70s in the afternoon for the rest of the region.
Several embedded short waves will pivot through the larger upper level trough Thursday evening and overnight, which may bring some clouds to the region, especially over northeastern Minnesota. Winds will continue to be a bit blustery and cooler air will filter in with northwesterly flow, resulting in low temperatures in the 40s Thursday night.
LONG TERM. (Friday through Wednesday) Issued at 351 PM CDT Wed May 27 2020
Friday and Saturday's weather will be characterized by dry conditions as surface high pressure moves into the region from the west. There may be some scattered clouds as remnants of an upper level trough pass through on Friday, but in general expect partly to mostly sunny skies. Cooler air will advect into the region with northwesterly flow, and this will keep high temperatures in the 60s across the region. With a cooler airmass moving in, there is a slight chance for some patchy frost Friday and Saturday nights as temperatures drop into the 30s across northeastern Minnesota.
An upper level jet will set itself up over the Northland through the weekend, but will move east on Sunday as a broad upper level ridge moves over the area. As the ridge moves over and surface high pressure moves east, southerly return flow will bring warm air advection which will bring high temperatures back up into the 70s and 80s by early next week. Rain chances look pretty slim early next week, but there may be some slight chances early- to mid-week as there is some potential for a shortwave to move through. There are quite a bit of model differences that far out, however, so just kept some slight chance PoPs for now.
AVIATION. (For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Thursday afternoon) Issued at 1256 PM CDT Wed May 27 2020
Scattered showers are possible at HYR early this afternoon, but should gradually diminish as a cold front slowly moves east. There's a slight chance for MVFR visibilities in a moderate rain shower, but most likely visibilities will remain VFR. Elsewhere, high pressure is moving in and skies have cleared out except for a few cumulus clouds. Winds will be a bit breezy from the west with gusts approaching 20 kt at INL this afternoon as a secondary cold front passes through. Expect VFR conditions for the rest of the period at all terminals except HYR, which may see some fog tonight.
MARINE. Issued at 351 PM CDT Wed May 27 2020
Fog continues to persist along the North Shore this afternoon. Improvement is expected as winds slowly become west and then northwest as a cold front passes through overnight, but dense fog will likely persist for a few more hours. Therefore, I extended the dense fog advisory until 00Z from Grand Marais to the Canadian border. Otherwise, winds will be light overnight.
Tomorrow, west to southwest winds will be a bit breezy at times with occasional gusts from 15-20 kt. Winds will become northwesterly again Thursday night into Friday with speeds ranging from 5-10 kt and gusts 15-20 kt. Wave heights will be 2 ft or less in the next 48 hours.

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.
