Forecast Discussion for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin

Today’s Weather:

A warm and moist advection pattern is well underway with a large area of stratus clouds along with areas of fog and drizzle in place over our area Today.  High temperatures on this final day of August 2011 were in the 60s to around 70 degrees with upper 50s at the head of Lake Superior.  Dewpoints Today ranged from the mid 50s to mid 60s and winds were out of the east or southeast under 20 mph.

Today’s Upper Level Analysis:

A fairly strong disturbance which brought the area some rain on Tuesday was exiting to our north-east This Afternoon per water vapor satellite imagery.  A potent upper level trough was digging south-east across the Pacific Northwest and Northern Rockies with a southwest H5 flow developing ahead of this trough across the Northern Plains.

Tonight:

Low clouds will remain in place in our area along with patchy fog and drizzle, some of the fog could become dense at times with visibilities falling to around one quarter mile.  A warm front currently in Southern Minnesota will remain in that general area during the night while low pressure in Northern Wyoming heads into the Northern Plains Overnight.  Southerly winds ahead of this system will continue to feed warm and moist air into our area.  Instability will also be on the increase Tonight north of the warm front as elevated CAPE climbs to around 1000 j/kg.  The threat for showers and thunderstorms is on the low side Tonight due to a cap (warm layer of air aloft) which will strengthen during the night, however, a few elevated thunderstorms could develop late Tonight especially in Northcentral Minnesota.  Low temperatures Tonight will be in the 50s and 60s with east or southeast winds under 20 mph.

Thursday and Thursday Night:

A warm front will lift northeast into Eastcentral Minnesota and Northern Wisconsin while a cold front moves east out of the Dakotas Thursday Morning…This boundary will reach the International Falls and Brainerd Lakes area by late Thursday Afternoon…And will move through Northeast-Eastcentral Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin Thursday Night.

A warm, moist and potentially very unstable airmass will be found across the Upper Midwest on Thursday with CAPE ranging from 1500-4000 j/kg and Lifted Indices from -3 to -8 degrees C.  Dewpoints are forecasted to be in 64-73 degree range with PWS of 1.25-1.75″ and 850mb td’s of +14 to +20 degrees C.

A strong cap is still expected to lift northeast into our area through Thursday Evening with 700mb temperatures of +12 to +14 degrees C, but there have been some trends per recent model data that the cap may weaken just enough to allow for the development of scattered thunderstorms by late Thursday Afternoon or early Thursday Evening from Northcentral into Eastcentral Minnesota, and possibly into Northwestern Wisconsin…Should the cap not weaken, then the threat for showers and thunderstorms would hold off until late Thursday Evening, or most likely during the Overnight hours.

Note:  There may also be a round or two of showers and thunderstorms affecting mainly Northern Minnesota Thursday Morning on the nose of the approaching cap.

The potential for severe thunderstorms does exist for Thursday and Thursday Night with plenty of instability, warm and moist air in place…This combined with 30-50 knots of 0-6 KM SHEAR and EFFECTIVE BULK SHEAR in conjunction with a 65 knot mid level jet and a 80-110 knot upper level jet from the Northern Plains to Red River Valley will support a severe risk.  Large hail and damaging winds appear to be the greatest threats at this time, but there could also be an isolated tornado threat if storms can develop between 3-9PM Thursday.  1KM HELICITY is forecasted to range from 100-200 m2/s2 with 1KM EHI values of around 2 per 12z model data.

High temperatures on Thursday will be in the 70s and 80s with 60s at the head of Lake Superior.  Low clouds, areas of fog and drizzle should burn off in most areas on Thursday, but the exception might be around Lake Superior unless the marine layer can weaken during the day.

Low temperatures Thursday Night will be in the 50s in far Northern Minnesota with 60s to lower 70s elsewhere.  Winds Tomorrow will be from the south or east at 10-20 mph.  Winds Tomorrow Night will be out of the north, east or south under 20 mph.

Extended Forecast:

Low pressure and cold front will exit to our east Friday Morning…Some lingering rain showers are possible in Eastern Minnesota and Northern Wisconsin before Noon Friday, thereafter high pressure builds in with dry weather Friday Afternoon into Saturday Morning.  High temperatures on Friday will be in the 60s and 70s with lows Friday Night in the 40s and 50s.  A quick moving cold front will drop southeast through our area on Saturday…This system looks like it may be fairly vigorous, but won’t have much moisture to work with due to the speed of it.  A line or two of showers and isolated thunderstorms will probably occur Saturday Afternoon and Evening in Northern Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin as this front moves through.  Dry weather should then return to the area Saturday Night through Labor Day Monday as high pressure builds into the Upper Midwest.  High temperatures on Saturday will be in the 60s and 70s with lows Saturday Night in the 40s and 50s.

Forecast Discussion for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin

Today’s Weather:

Late This Afternoon…A cold front was moving south into extreme Northern Minnesota with low pressure of 1004mb centered near Hudson Bay Canada with high pressure of 1016mb in Southeast Wisconsin.  A warm W-SW wind was found in our area Today along with partly cloudy to sunny skies.  High temperatures made it into the upper 70s to lower 80s which is around 5-10 degrees above average for late August.  Dewpoints Today were mainly in the 50s with west or southwest winds at 10-20 mph.

Today’s Upper Level Analysis:

W-NW 500mb flow was in place across the Upper Midwest per RUC model analysis and water vapor satellite imagery.  A vigorous H5 low was moving SE through Northern Ontario Province while a disturbance heads east out of the Northern Rockies, a broad area of 30 meter 12 hour 500mb height falls was accompanying that disturbance to our west Today.

Tonight:

A weak cold front will sag south and should reach Central Minnesota late Tonight.  Moisture and instability is on the low side along and ahead of this front with late Afternoon CAPE generally of 500 j/kg or less with Lifted Indices around -2 degrees C.  A couple showers or isolated thunderstorms may develop especially this Evening in Northern Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin, but this does not look like a very big deal at this time.  Partly to mostly cloudy skies are forecasted Tonight with lows mainly in the 50s.  Winds will be out of the west, north or east under 20 mph.

Tuesday and Tuesday Night:

Tonight’s weak cold front will stall out and lift back north as a warm front while an upper level disturbance moves east across the Northern Plains.  Showers could develop at times in our area, especially by Tuesday Afternoon and Tuesday Night.  Instability looks low, but a few rumbles of thunder can’t be ruled out with these rain showers.  Highs on Tuesday will be in the 60s and 70s with lows Tuesday Night mainly in the 50s.  Partly sunny to mostly cloudy skies are expected Tomorrow with mostly cloudy skies Tomorrow Night.  Winds during this period will be out of the east at 10-20 mph.

Extended Forecast:

Southwest 500mb flow will lock in for mid to late week with high pressure in Eastern Canada and low pressure to our west.  A southerly flow of increasingly moist and unstable air will build north into the Upper Midwest with the highest combination of moisture and instability arriving for Thursday and Thursday Night the way it looks now. 

The latest model data from Today shows some rather high amounts of CAPE for Thursday with values of 1500-3000 j/kg with Lifted Indices from -3 to -7 degrees C.  0-6 KM SHEAR and EFFECTIVE BULK SHEAR is forecasted to be in the 30-40 knot range with 1KM HELICITY of 100-200 m2/s2 and 1KM EHI of 2-4.  All those parameters are rather high for possible severe weather, but a strong cap looks to build in on Thursday with 700mb temperatures of +12 to +14 degrees C and 850mb temperatures approaching +25 degrees C. 

A cold front will move east into our area by Thursday Evening into Friday Morning, and this front could bring some showers or thunderstorms to our area at that time…Not sure how widespread this activity will be at this time due to the strong cap that is forecasted to be in place later this week, but if thunderstorms can develop they could certainly become severe if the current shear and instability projections hold up in coming days.  There will also be a risk for showers and isolated thunderstorms for Wednesday and Wednesday Night as a warm/moist advection pattern carry’s over from Tuesday.

High temperatures on Wednesday will be in the 60s and 70s with lows Wednesday Night in the 50s and 60s.  Highs on Thursday will be in the 70s and 80s with lows Thursday Night mainly in the 60s.

Looks like a cooling trend is in store starting either on Friday or during the weekend, this cool airmass could carry over into at least the early portion of next week the way it looks now.  Doesn’t look like it will be cold enough at night to produce any frost, but this could change in coming days.

5 DAY FORECAST FOR DULUTH/SUPERIOR

.Tonight…  Partly cloudy.  Low 55 to 60.  Wind west to southwest at 10 to 20 mph, becoming north Overnight.

.Tuesday…  Partly sunny.  High 71 to 76.  Wind east at 10 to 15 mph.

.Tuesday Night…  Occasional showers possible.  Mostly cloudy.  Low 55 to 60.  Wind east at 10 to 15 mph.  Chance of rain 60%.

.Wednesday…  Occasional showers possible.  Considerable cloudiness.  High 65 to 70.  Chance of rain 40%.

Issued at 5:16 PM CDT, Sunday, August 28th, 2011

Weather History:

On this date in 1984:  A record high temperature of 91 degrees occurred at Duluth, Minnesota.
On this date in 1982:  A record low temperature of 34 degrees occurred at Duluth, Minnesota.

WEATHER HEADLINES:

-Spotty rain showers Tonight

-Risk for showers/thunderstorms Tuesday, possibly lingering into the end of the week

Forecast Discussion for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin

Today’s Weather:

High pressure of 1016mb covered Northern Minnesota late Today.  A weak disturbance embedded in the northwest upper level flow caused some clouds and scattered mostly light rain showers across Northern Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin Today.  High temperatures were generally in the lower to middle 70s with variable winds under 15 mph.

Today’s Upper Level Analysis:

Northwest H5 flow continues Today with Tropical Storm Irene pushing north through the Northeast U.S. into Quebec Province while an upper level low moves slowly E-NE through Oregon per water vapor satellite imagery.

Tonight:

Partly to mostly cloudy skies will be found in our area with a possibility for a few light rain showers.  Lows will mainly be in the 50s with variable winds under 15 mph.

Monday and Monday Night:

A weak cold front will sink south and stall out over or close to our area by Monday Night.  Weak moisture and instability will develop near this boundary and this could cause a few showers or isolated thunderstorms Monday Afternoon into Monday Night.  Partly-mostly cloudy skies are expected during this period with highs Tomorrow in the 70s to lower 80s with lows Tomorrow Night in the 50s.  Southwest winds on Monday will become east or west Monday Night.  Wind speeds will be under 20 mph.

Extended Forecast:

Southwest upper level flow will develop by mid to late week which is a change compared to what we have seen the majority of August and it’s northwest or west-northwest 500mb flow.  Moisture and instability will gradually increase from southwest to northeast across the Upper Midwest and warm temperatures aloft (CAP) will also advect northeast out of the Western High Plains for Wednesday and Thursday.  Looks like will see an area of low pressure pass west-north of our area for Thursday and Friday…A cold front attached to this low is forecasted to pass through Northern Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin sometime between Thursday Evening and Friday.  This system could bring some showers or thunderstorms to our area Thursday and or Friday, but how widespread these storms will be is uncertain at this time due to the potential cap that may move into the Upper Midwest later this week.  There will also be a risk for some showers or thunderstorms on Wednesday, that would be associated with the warm/moist advection pattern which will lift northeast into our area.  High temperatures for Tuesday and Wednesday will be in the 60s and 70s with low temperatures Tuesday Night and Wednesday Night in the 50s to lower 60s.

5 DAY FORECAST FOR DULUTH/SUPERIOR

.Tonight…  Partly to mostly cloudy.  Low 50 to 55.  Wind variable under 12 mph.

.Monday…  Partly cloudy.  Late day showers or thunderstorms possible.  High 75 to 80.  Wind southwest at 10 to 15 mph.  Chance of rain 20%.

.Monday Night…  Partly cloudy.  Showers or thunderstorms possible.  Low 50 to 55.  Wind becoming north at 5 to 15 mph.  Chance of rain 20%.

Forecast Discussion for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin

Today’s Weather:

A cold front has moved into Central Wisconsin late This Afternoon with high pressure of 1020mb centered in Western Saskatchewan Province.  A few showers and thunderstorms developed early This Morning into early This Afternoon in Northeast and Eastcentral Minnesota into Northwest Wisconsin as this cold front moved through.  Isolated severe thunderstorms did develop during the Morning in Northeast Minnesota with one report of hail in Cook County.  Most of the storms, however, stayed below severe levels with downpours and frequent lightning being the main hazards.  Partly cloudy to sunny skies were found in our area Today with above average temperatures with highs in the upper 70s to middle 80s.  Dewpoints ranged from the 60s in Northwest Wisconsin with PWS of 1.00-1.40″, much drier air with dewpoints in the 40s and PWS falling to around 1/2″ are beginning to push S-SE out of Northern Minnesota late Today.  Winds Today were out of the southwest or northwest at 10-20 mph.

Today’s Upper Level Analysis:

500mb ridge stretched from the Central Rockies and Central Plains through the Southwest and Southern U.S. per RUC model analysis.  A fast NW flow aloft with a 100 knot jet streak was located to our N-NW Today with a potent H5 low moving through Central Canada along with it’s 60-90 meter 12 hour 500mb height falls.

Tonight:

Clear to partly cloudy skies will be found in Northern Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin with lows in the 40s and 50s.  Winds will be out of the northwest at 10-20 mph.

Saturday and Saturday Night:

High pressure will move from the Northern Plains to Upper Midwest during this period.  Partly to mostly cloudy skies are expected with the possibility for a few brief light rain showers or sprinkles Tomorrow Afternoon or Tomorrow Night, mainly from Cass Lake and Walker, down toward the Brainerd area.  Highs Tomorrow will be in the 60s and 70s with lows Tomorrow Night in the 40s and 50s.  Winds will be out of the north, west or east under 20 mph.

Extended Forecast:

High pressure moves off to our east on Sunday while a weakening cold front moves into the Upper Midwest during the Sunday-Monday Morning time frame.  A few showers could accompany this front as it moves through our local area late this weekend.  High temperatures for Sunday and Monday will be in the 60s and 70s with lows Sunday Night and Monday Night generally in the 50s.  Long range models show a SW 500mb flow setting up for the middle and end of next week which should pump warm, moist and unstable air north into the Upper Midwest.  A cold front will move across the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest sometime during the Wednesday-Friday time frame and that is when our next best shot for showers/thunderstorms will be the way it looks now.

WEATHER HEADLINES:

*A few showers/thunderstorms late Tonight-Friday
*Dry Friday Night-Sunday Morning
*Shower threat returns Sunday Afternoon-early Monday

Forecast Discussion for Northeast Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin

Today’s Weather:

A very pleasant late summer day with plenty of sunshine along with high temperatures in the 70s to lower 80s.  Dewpoints were generally in the 50s to around 60 degrees.  Winds were from the southwest or west under 20 mph.

Today’s Upper Level Analysis:

W-NW 500mb flow covered the Upper Midwest with an upper level ridge in place from the Rockies through the Central-Southern U.S.  Water vapor satellite imagery shows one disturbance passing E-SE through Minnesota and Wisconsin, ridging and little moisture in place resulted in no precipitation with this disturbance.  The next disturbance was moving east through the Northern Rockies into the Northern Plains per water vapor satellite imagery.

Tonight:

High pressure to our southeast and low pressure to our northwest will cause a southwest wind and a warm/moist advection pattern which will be aided by a 25-35 knot SW low level jet which will develop out ahead of a cold front which will enter the Western portion of Minnesota Overnight.  A few showers or isolated thunderstorms could develop after 1AM from International Falls through Grand Rapids, and west through Cass Lake, Walker and Brainerd.  Lows Tonight will be in the 50s to around 60 degrees with partly-mostly cloudy skies.  Winds will be out of the southwest under 20 mph.

Friday and Friday Night:

A cold front will move through our area from west to east on Friday.  Dewpoints around 60, PWS approaching 1.25″, 850mb td’s around +12 degrees C will develop along and ahead of this boundary with CAPE generally around 1000 j/kg and Lifted Indices around -3 degrees C.  A few showers and thunderstorms are possible Friday Morning in Northern Minnesota and through early Afternoon in Eastern-Northeast Minnesota.  The risk for a few showers and thunderstorms will reach Northwest Wisconsin Friday Afternoon.  Moisture and instability are forecasted to be on the marginal side on Friday, but with mid level winds increasing to 40-50 knots combined with 30-40 knots of EFFECTIVE BULK SHEAR and 0-6 KM SHEAR, the risk for isolated strong to severe thunderstorms will exist, mainly Friday Afternoon over Northwestern Wisconsin.  Damaging winds and possibly some large hail would be the main threats from any severe weather, otherwise expect occasional lightning, wind gusts up to 40 mph, quarter inch hail and brief downpours.  Partly to mostly cloudy skies are expected Tomorrow with highs in the 70s to lower 80s.  Skies will clear Friday Night as the cold front exits to our south/east.  Lows will be in the 40s and 50s.  Winds Tomorrow will be out of the northwest or southwest at 10-25 mph.  Winds Tomorrow Night will be out of the northwest at 10-20 mph.

Extended Forecast:

Dry weather can be expected for Saturday and at least into Sunday Morning the way it looks now.  Could see some rain showers return to parts of our area Sunday Afternoon into early Monday.  High temperatures for Saturday and Sunday will mainly be in the 70s with lows Saturday Night in the 40s and 50s with mainly 50s for Sunday Night.

5 DAY FORECAST FOR DULUTH/SUPERIOR

.Tonight…  Mostly clear.  Low 57 to 62.  Wind southwest at 10 to 15 mph.
