National Weather Service Grand Forks ND
656 PM CDT Wed Jul 26 2017

Issued at 651 PM CDT Wed Jul 26 2017

No significant updates planned for this early evening. The CU
field should continue to dissipate with sunset.


.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 00Z TAFS through 00Z Thursday evening)
Issued at 651 PM CDT Wed Jul 26 2017

VFR conditions with light northerly blayer flow throughout the
forecast period. CU field over the area now should dissipate with
sunset. Expect Cu field to redevelop over the northwest MN through
the mid morning period on Thursday. SCT-BKN VFR CIGS are possible
from mid morning through early afternoon over the Lake of the
Woods and Red Lakes Region of northcentral MN.
