Synopsis
Low pressure will track northeast across the upper great lakes
tonight with a cold front moving east across the area. The low will
continue northeast into canada with high pressure expanding up the
ohio valley Friday night into early Saturday. A secondary upper
trough will swing across the great lakes region on Saturday.

Near term through today
Things have quieted down. Continue to get pictures and now even some
video of the tornado in trumbull county. For the overnight
hours will see just a few stray showers the next few hours. Some
periods of mostly clear skies are likely but the flavor of the
night in the west will be partly cloudy. Further east the clouds
will be greater in coverage. Made some very minor adjustments
to the temperatures as well. Still some 70s dew points but those
should dip into the middle 60s most locations overnight.

Previous... Vigorous convection has not been able to get
established this afternoon along the line in northern ohio. The
convection has outpaced the better height falls to the west and
convective debris cloud has outpaced the line and had a limiting
effect on destabilization. We will continue to monitor for any
stronger cells that develop as we head into peak heating, but
the severe weather threat appears to be isolated in nature. Rain
will continues to move northeast and most areas will see some
showers with just scattered thunderstorms as this line continues
to the east.

Much drier air aloft spread in from the west overnight as the mid-
level dry slot wraps around the trough. High dewpoints will
make conditions feel humid overnight and some areas of stratus
could develop as the high cloud clears out aloft. Patchy fog
also possible but not expecting it to get too bad with southwest
winds of 5 to 10 mph.

Low pressure will continue to track northeast into canada on Friday
with breezy west southwest winds gusting to around 20 mph. Trimmed
back any chance of rain on Friday to just a low chance in NW pa.

Expecting partly to mostly cloudy skies as a healthy CU field
develops with daytime heating. High pressure will expand up the ohio
valley Friday night. Clouds will begin to increase late ahead of
the next trough approaching from the west.

Short term tonight through Sunday night
A trough is progged to move east across the CWA on sat. Upper
support looks good but surface moisture and focusing is weaker so
will keep pops in chc category. A few leftover shra could still be
in NW pa Sat night, otherwise high pressure spreads in from the west
and should dominate thru Mon and keep conditions dry. Temps should
start out near to a little below normal Sat then warm to be above
normal by mon.

Long term Monday through Thursday
A fast moving upper level trough will push east across the eastern
united states during the extended periods Monday night through
Wednesday. This will cause a fast moving surface low pressure to
race across the great lakes region during the same time period.

Models are suggesting the low pressure system will begin to spread
some moisture into the local area Monday night into Tuesday with a
chance for showers and thunderstorms along the cold front. Once
storm system moves east of the area, a large area of high pressure
will begin to nose southeast toward the local area for the latter
half of the forecast period. Warm air advection will take place in
advance of the low pressure but after frontal passage, we should see
some cold air advection. Possibility exists for some lake effect or
better yet lake enhance rain showers after frontal passage across
the northeast. Would not be surprised with cold air sliding south
across the area that we see some waterspouts and cold air funnels
during the latter half of the week.

Aviation 06z Friday through Tuesday
The line of showers storms from earlier has shifted mainly east
of the forecast area. Stratus was starting to form across
central and eastern ohio and ifr ceilings will develop soon
around kcak and soon after at kyng. Not sure whether the stratus
can clip kmfd and perhaps keri. The cold front is still to the
west and cannot rule out a shower as it crosses the area this
morning but kept the TAF forecasts dry given the isolated nature
of any shower development. MVFR stratocumulus will likely
develop behind the front for a while this morning into early
afternoon. Winds will become gusty from the west today. Skies
will clear for a while by early tonight (Friday night).

Outlook... Areas of non-vfr possible in showers Saturday.

Marine
The cold front moving across the lake tonight will gradually veer
winds from SW to west thru Fri afternoon with speeds increasing to
15 to 25 knots eventually bringing 4 foot or better waves into the
nearshore Fri aftn. Winds will slowly settle down into Sat night
while wavering back and forth as a trough crosses the lake sat. High
pressure will tend to dominate Sun into Mon with winds eventually
turning out of the SW by Tue and increasing to 10 to 20 knots ahead
of the next cold front.

Cle watches warnings advisories
Oh... None.

Pa... None.

Marine... None.

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.
