412 pm edt Thu mar 21 2019

Synopsis
A pair of cold fronts will drop southeast across the area
tonight and again on Friday. Cool high pressure will follow for
Saturday. The next cold front will sink south Monday. High
pressure and fair weather then takes us into mid week.

Near term through Friday night
Scattered light rain still occurring with the departing system,
but these will be ending before long. Area of fog hugging the
immediate lakeshore from near cleveland eastward. Hi-res
guidances drifts it east with the flow and brings it into erie,
pa for a few hours. Not confident on how dense the fog will be
by then. After a pause in precip chances for a time this
evening, a pair of cold fronts dropping down from the
northern central lakes later tonight and on Friday will bring
some wet snow showers to much of north-central and northeast oh
and northwest pa on Friday. A large portion of the lake is wide
open. Temperatures aloft do not suggest pure lake effect, but
rather a lake enhanced situation. Moisture depth inversion
height lapse rates high enough for decent snow showers to
develop with the trough and in the northwest flow. The
predominate precip type will be snow, but do have a mix with
rain possible for the west south extent of the pops. Have
extended the precip chances into Friday evening. The coldest air
arrives Friday afternoon just as the better moisture is about
to leave. There may be a juxtaposition and some continued snow
showers toward evening. Granted this time of year and with
marginal temperatures low- mid 30s, accumulations will be a bit
harder to come by. Expect light accumulations across the higher
terrain though. Have continued the 1 to 3 inch forecast for
those higher areas. Areas around the i-75 corridor will likely
be dry.

Temperatures will likely fall mid-morning Friday with another
drop later in the afternoon with the next push of cold air. Only
ones to see 40 would be the i-75 corridor. Friday night will be
cold in lower 20s (with a few upper teens).

Short term Saturday through Sunday night
High pressure will build southeast out of canada and be
overhead on Saturday. Any lingering cloud cover should dissipate
quickly giving way to clear skies. The light northerly flow off
the lake will keep conditions cool on Saturday with
temperatures ranging from mid 40s along the i-75 corridor and
mid 30s in NW pa. Saturday night will be chilly with favorable
radiational cooling and temperatures in the 20s. Warm advection
will develop on Sunday as the high shifts to the south and
return flow sets up. Southerly winds and a fair amount of sun
during the first half of the day will allow temperatures to top
out a couple degrees above normal in most locations.

Models are coming into better agreement with a wave of low pressure
passing from iowa to kentucky Sunday night into Monday. Isentropic
ascent in advance of this feature will result in some rain spreading
into portions of the area. Still a little concerned that models are
too far north with the precipitation as a dry northeasterly flow
develops with a back door cold front settling south towards the
area and will keep the likely pops south of a line from findlay to
wooster. Monday will be cooler again with temperatures in the lower
40s.

Long term Monday through Thursday
High pressure returns Monday night through Wednesday. Tuesday
will be cool with a warming trend to follow Wednesday and above
normal temperatures across the region by Thursday. Upper level
ridge axis expected to shift east of the area Thursday night
with moisture advection increasing to end the week.

Aviation 18z Thursday through Tuesday
Widespread MVFR conditions for the rest of the afternoon with an
area of lifr ceilings vsby hugging the central lakeshore,
reaching as far inland as cle for a time. Model guidance
suggests that with the shifting flow, this will reach eri this
evening for a few several hours. Low confidence, but with
current situation unfolding, included it in the taf. Otherwise
there may be a few breaks in the MVFR overcast, but another
trough and decent cold front will drop down across the terminals
for later tonight and Friday bringing snow showers to mfd cle
and points eastward. Northwest winds will gust Friday to upwards
of 30 knots.

Outlook... Non-vfr conditions Friday afternoon through Saturday
morning. Non-vfr likely Monday.

Marine
A trough will swing south across lake erie late tonight,
pulling a strong cold front across the lake. Winds will shift to
the north northwest and increase to 20-30 knots. With
considerable open water west of the pa state line, waves are
expected to build to 6 to 9 feet east of cleveland and small
craft advisories will be needed. The strong north winds will
likely cause ice floes to move around and possibly close
available channels off the pa shoreline.

Improving conditions are expected over the weekend as high pressure
builds southeast out of canada towards the carolina coast.

Another cold front will push south out of canada on Monday with
north winds increasing to 10-20 knots.

Oh... None.

Pa... None.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
