No significant updates planned for this late evening. Generally
fair skies through the overnight and early morning..with cu

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Thursday)
Issued at 302 PM CDT Wed Jul 26 2017

The afternoon cumulus should fade away pretty quickly this evening
and winds will become light. Not a lot of change in the thermal
profile tonight into Thursday, so highs Thursday should be pretty
similar to those from today. Thursday winds look to be a little
lower too.

.LONG TERM...(Thursday night through Wednesday)
Issued at 302 PM CDT Wed Jul 26 2017

Typical late July weather in store for the region late week and into
early next week as temperatures will be within a few degrees of
normal.  Also typical for this time of summer, no strong systems to
affect the area as the main 500 mb jet remains a bit north of us
while deep moisture will be limited.  One trough/front will come
thru Saturday into early Sunday and do expect enough instability
with this and moisture for a few storms.  Same on Tuesday.  0-6km
bulk shear progged to be rather weak those organized long lived
convective events not anticipated.


.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Thursday night)
Issued at 1128 PM CDT Wed Jul 26 2017

Expect Fair skies with light northerly winds during the overnight
and into Thursday morning. A weak shortwave trof will dig
southward across northern MN through the day on Thursday and help
to generate a SCT-BKN VFR CU field across most of northwest MN
from 14z /northern MN/ through 23z /central MN/. In eastern ND
expect fair skies and winds beginning to turn from the southeast
in the afternoon.
