Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Grand Forks ND 348 PM CST Wed Jan 22 2020

SHORT TERM. (This evening through Thursday night) Issued at 348 PM CST Wed Jan 22 2020

As of late this afternoon, low clouds continued to sag fairly rapidly to the south. These will continue to sag southward tonight, resulting in cloudy skies for the entire FA. There are fairly high surface dew points right now, so there is some low level humidity out there. Eastern North Dakota winds have become northerly at 5 to 10 mph, while along and east of the valley they are still light. There are still some clear spots, so the temperature fall early this evening could also bring some patchy fog. Fog could also advect into portions of the area, as it has already formed across portions of southwest Minnesota. Expect an inverted trough to set up into the valley tonight into Thursday, bringing some weak lift as well. This may be enough for some freezing drizzle too. Models seem to show the better potential for this to form across west central Minnesota. This same area could add some light snow to the fog/freezing drizzle mix on Thursday and Thursday night.

LONG TERM. (Friday through Wednesday) Issued at 348 PM CST Wed Jan 22 2020

Friday morning through Saturday . Flow aloft is relatively progressive. Upper level trough is forecast from northern MN to a main upper low over MO/IL border on 12Z Fri. Weak inverted trough lingers over northern MN through Fri night. Low level moisture over the Great Lakes will wrap west and south over the southeast zones but will begin to shift south and east Fri. NBM produce some light precip over the south and east zones at the 75th percentile. Impacts could produce some freezing drizzle over the southeast zones yet Fri morning. Thereafter we get into northwest flow aloft briefly. Main upper low will consolidate over OH on 12Z Sat. Return flow commences Sat.

Sunday to Wednesday . Long wave upper level ridge remains over western North America and long wave trough remains off the east coast of Canada. Also long wave trough over the eastern US shifts into the Atlantic to be replaced by another trough over the central US. Some light snow is possible Sat night/Sun mainly in the northern valley. Both the ECENS and the GEFS ensemble subtly suggest light precip. Another short wave is possible Tue/Wed. At this time little impacts are expected.

AVIATION. (For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Thursday morning) Issued at 526 AM CST Wed Jan 22 2020

VFR conditions prevail through much of the day across the region. Look for high clouds to begin working back into the area this afternoon as a disturbance approaches the area. This will bring MVFR to IFR CIGs to all sites starting this evening and persisting through the overnight period. A chance of light snow and freezing drizzle is possible from late afternoon into the evening and overnight.

FGF WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. ND . None. MN . None.

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.
