What's New / NOTES
6/25/2017 - NOAA is having a major issue that impact the 7 day forecast load times. Many users are reporting problems. The issue has been reported.
5/23/2017 - Worked with NOAA again to speed up the 7 day forecast load times. Thanks to them for being responsive.
5/19/2016 - There were issues with the 3 day airport observation history. I switched to another data source. Let me know if you see any issues with the data feeds.

Synopsis
Low pressure will strengthen as it tracks northeast across the
southern great lakes through tonight. As the low moves by, a
strong cold front will push east through the region. Colder and
drier conditions will prevail for Sunday. High pressure will
build back into the region Sunday night into Monday. Temperatures
will rise to near normal readings for the beginning of the work
week before falling to below normal readings for thanksgiving.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
In a moist warm air advection regime aloft due to a potent low
level jet, showers were occurring across the region early this
morning. Low pressure emerging from the southern plains will
strengthen as it tracks northeast to a position near northeast
indiana northwest ohio by late in the day. As this occurs, high
resolution models suggest that a warm front will develop on
another strong nose of a low level jet from mid morning into mid
afternoon as the low heads toward northwest ohio. This should
focus and shift showers and embedded thunderstorms to the far
northern and northwest sections of our cwfa as the remainder of
the region becomes warm sectored. By late in the day, a strong
cold front trailing from the low is forecast to push east into
the region. With strong low level frontal convergence, a line of
showers and embedded thunderstorms is expected. Given a very
strong wind regime, and sufficient mlcapes of 500 j kg for this
time of the year, there is the concern that some of the storms
may bow along the line, allowing for the potential for a few
strong to perhaps severe thunderstorm gusts. As a result, spc
has our region in a marginal risk for severe thunderstorms as
this line moves east through the region late this afternoon into
this evening. Outside the threat for gusty winds within
thunderstorms will be the synoptic scale winds. With a
tightening pressure gradient and aforementioned strong low level
jet, winds this afternoon should easily gust from the south into
the lower and mid 30s knots. There is some concern for wind
gusts to reach or slightly exceed wind advisory criteria in the
waa regime should the atmosphere adiabatically mix higher than
what the majority of models are suggesting. We will have to
watch how much saturation occurs this morning and how low
ceilings get. A wind advisory is in effect beginning from noon
onward, mainly for the synoptic scale gusts approaching 40 knots
behind the cold front from late this afternoon into this
evening. But given the caveat just mentioned, it is a good thing
that it is in effect before frontal passage. Another concern is
the potential for locally heavy rain across our far north given
some training of showers and storms today along with additional
pcpn with the front. Rainfall amounts will likely fall into the
1 to 2 inch range, but will have to watch for any potential
flooding issues. Otherwise, it will be warm today despite
considerable cloud cover with highs mainly in the lower to mid
60s.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Sunday
For tonight, low pressure and the cold front will move east away
from the region. There could be a brief period of mesoscale
frontogenetic precipitation across the region on the back side
of the departing low, otherwise, precipitation should taper off
from west to east this evening. Again, winds will be gusty from
the northwest with gusts up to 40 knots possible. The wind
advisory is in effect until 4 am. Winds should die down some
thereafter with gusts in the 20 to 25 knot range by Sunday
morning. Under a moist CAA regime, clouds will remain overnight
with lows bottoming out in the lower 30s northwest to the upper
30s southeast.

For Sunday, in a northwest flow aloft, an embedded S WV is
forecast to dive quickly southeast into the region by afternoon.

This feature, along with a cold fetch off of lake michigan, may
be enough for a few snow showers to occur across our far
northern zones. Elsewhere, it will remain mostly cloudy for a
good part of the day. Outside of the lake effect, there doesn't
appear to be support for any flurry activity as the cloud layer
will not be intersecting the dendritic growth zone, something
you need in the winter time for snowflakes to squeeze out of the
clouds. Temperatures will not show much of a diurnal rise with
highs peaking in the upper 30s to the lower 40s. Locally gusty
winds from the northwest can also be expected.

Long term Sunday night through Friday
The iln CWA will be on the back side of a mid level trough on Sunday
night, with any snow showers in the northern half of ohio likely
coming to an end before the long term forecast period begins. Though
the pattern will change a little going into the week, one constant
will be the wind, as the near-surface pressure gradient will remain
strong through Monday and Tuesday -- supporting gusts above 20
knots. High pressure nudging into the area from the southeastern
states will force a switch to southwesterly flow on Monday, leading
to a warming trend that will continue through Tuesday.

As the surface high moves off the mid-atlantic coast later Tuesday,
a weak cold front is expected to move through the ohio valley on
Tuesday night. This front will be pivoting into a wsw-to-ene
orientation, and will be far removed from its parent low (moving
into northern quebec). With moisture also lacking, a dry forecast
will be maintained as this front passes through. This forecast is
supported by recent GFS cmc model runs, though it should be noted
that the ECMWF model has been trending toward a deeper shortwave,
and thus a solution that allows for some precipitation to occur with
the front. Either way, not expecting as strong of cold advection as
with the current weekend setup. Nonetheless, MAX temperatures will
drop around 10 degrees from Tuesday to Wednesday, before starting a
slow recovery through the rest of the week.

Beyond this front, the iln CWA is likely to remain between weather
systems (in what is actually somewhat of an active pattern for other
parts of the conus) through at least Friday.

Aviation 08z Saturday through Wednesday
First round of precipitation was pushing into the region early
this morning on the nose of a fairly potent low level jet.

Showers with some embedded thunder can be expected. Ceilings
will begin out asVFR but with gradual saturation, they should
drop into the MVFR category overnight. Llws will be an issue due
to the strong wind flow off the surface. It will last until 14z,
but there are some indications that it may be need longer than
this. Will address this once again with the 12z TAF issuance.

For today, low pressure will deepen as it heads northeast
toward the southern great lakes. The overall wind field will
increase as well which will bring gusty southerly winds. Showers
with embedded thunder should show an overall movement toward the
north as a warm front lifts through the region. Then, as the low
continues on to the northeast, an attendant cold front will
swing east through the region late this afternoon and evening.

This will bring a focused line of showers and embedded
thunderstorms. Gusty winds can be expected with any storms with
stronger synoptic scale wind gusts in the 35 to 40 knot range
expected behind frontal passage. Ceilings and visbilities will
predominately remain MVFR with local ifr possible, especially
with the frontal precipitation. Will fine tune this with later
taf updates.

For the overnight period, as the low and front continue to move
away from our area, precipitation will taper off from west to
east. CAA stratocumulus will then envelope the region with MVFR
ceilings which will linger into Sunday. Gusty winds will reduce
to 25 knots toward Sunday morning.

Outlook... MVFR ceilings to linger on Sunday.
