Synopsis
Low pressure over northwest missouri will move to the central
great lakes by this evening. This will allow a warm front to
lift northward across the region this morning. A cold front will
sweep eastward across northern ohio and northwestern
pennsylvania this evening into the overnight. High pressure will
briefly build across that area Thursday night into Friday. A
much stronger storm system will move into the central great
lakes over the weekend.

Near term through Thursday
Have updated to remove the winter weather advisory for those
areas that were expiring at noon and also to remove
lorain cuyahoga. What remains still is a touch of freezing
drizzle and light snow for northwest oh northeast oh northwest
pa for a few more hours. Overall everything is transitioning as
expected. The freezing drizzle should have limited affect at
this point. Another surge of precipitation is expected for the
evening rush and into the early evening, but this will be plain
rain. Relevant portion of the previous discussion follows.

A cold front will sweep across the area this evening into the
overnight hours. The warmest temperatures of the day will occur
just ahead of the cold front this evening. So the highs for the
day, in the 40s, will be after dark for a large portion of the
region. The remaining rain will transition to a few snow showers
late tonight into Thursday morning. High pressure should be
ridging into the region by Thursday afternoon. Some sunshine
will be possible Thursday afternoon which may help to nudge
highs close to 40 degrees.

Short term Thursday night through Saturday
Dry conditions expected Thursday night through Friday as high
pressure builds east across the region. Min temperatures on
Thursday night will be a little tricky based on the degree of
clearing of the low cloud and the influence of cirrus and high
cloud aloft, dropping into the lower to mid 20s most areas.

Expecting temperatures to recover fairly well with filtered sun
on Friday with highs near 40.

Moisture surges back north Friday night into Saturday with deep
southwest flow ahead of a system moving out of the plains. The
northward extent of the precipitation late Friday night is a little
uncertain given the dry low level easterly flow. If precipitation
arrives in areas before temperatures have a chance to warm above
freezing then could see a quick shot of light freezing rain but
chances look low. Best chance would be towards the toledo area but
would be short lived even there as temperatures climb on Saturday.

Scattered showers expected Saturday with winds veering to the south
as a warm front lifts north into the area. Late day highs in the 50s
are expected.

Long term Saturday night through Tuesday
Highly dynamic system lifts out of the plains across the central
great lakes Saturday night through Sunday. A strong low level jet
wrapping north across the area Saturday night will bring showers
with a chance of thunderstorms as the warm sector moves north to
near lake erie. Warming temperatures can be expected Saturday night
with much of the area in the 50s. The system undergoes impressive
deepening both at the surface and aloft as it wraps the cold front
in from the southwest on Sunday morning. Strong winds are expected
with gusts of at least 40-50 mph if the current track holds. Will
need to monitor the track and evolution of this system with the
potential for even stronger wind gusts if the track holds.

Cold advection behind the front will bring falling temperatures
through the day on Sunday with 850mb temperatures falling by nearly
25c in 24 hours. Lingering showers will transition back to snow on
Sunday night before drying out on Monday morning. Temperatures will
back to near normal by Monday.

Aviation 18z Wednesday through Monday
Still active weather for the terminals, but fortunately we are
nearly finished with fzra fzdz. Still have a little fzdz threat
for tol yng cak, but only for the next hour or two. Otherwise
either the precip will be ending or temperatures will get above
freezing. Eri will still see some light snow for a bit longer.

The relative break in the precipitation continues into mid
afternoon, but then another surge of rain is expected to cross
the terminals for late this afternoon and evening. Some fog to
follow the rain. Ceilings will be MVFR and ifr through this
afternoon and then ifr for a time overnight along with vsbys.

Ceilings slowly lift Thursday. Winds are beginning to veer to
the southeast and will continue to the south and then west-
southwest with the cold frontal passage this evening. Gusts of
25 knots or so will be common just before and after the front.

Outlook... Non-vfr Thursday. NonVFR possible again Saturday Sunday.

Marine
The lake remains mostly ice covered. Easterly flow of 15-20 knots
this morning will veer to the south today as a warm front approaches
from the south. A cold front will quickly follow this evening with
southwest winds increasing to 15-25 knots with locally up to 30
knots on the far east end into Thursday. High pressure will build
east across the region Thursday night through Friday night.

A rapidly deepening low pressure system will track out of the plains
on Saturday, moving northeast across the central great lakes
Saturday night into Sunday and bring strong winds to the region. If
the current track holds, gales are likely on lake erie as the cold
front is wrapped east across the lake. Increased winds accordingly
in the forecast but they may need to be raised even more. Winds will
veer to the northwest on Sunday night and decrease through the day
on Monday.

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.
