Synopsis
A weak trough will swing across the eastern great lakes
today kicking off a few snow showers in the snowbelt. High pressure
will move across the upper ohio valley tonight. A warm front will lift
across the forecast area Thursday ushering in above normal conditions.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Trough now south of forecast area, but but some patchy freezing
drizzle in the east with lack of high clouds to seed lower
stratus deck. So mentioned patch freezing drizzle in the east
for 630 update.

Original discussion...

initial trough near a yng to mrn line and will move south of
the forecast area shortly. Secondary trough across the central
lakes will slide across the eastern great lakes late this
morning. With a NW flow just left chance pops going in the
snowbelt. Do not expect much in the way of accumulations. With
the colder air moving in today do not think temps will improve
much through the day.

An upper level trough will swing across the upper ohio valley later
today into this evening. Short wave well south of the forecast
area, but did leave chance pops going across the extreme south late
this afternoon into this evening.

Short term 6 pm this evening through Saturday night
Ridge of high pressure will track across the upper ohio valley
tonight ending the chances for any precip. The ridge will slide
east of the forecast area Thursday allowing a warm front to lift ne
across the forecast area... Ushering in much warmer conditions
through the end of the work week.

The forecast is somewhat tricky Thursday night across extreme inland
northeast oh and inland northwest pa where it could decouple and get
cold (20 to 25f). Elsewhere the south wind will stay up and temps
will not drop much. Friday should be the blue ribbon day of the week
(unless you prefer snow cold) with sunshine. Given the warm start to
the day, the warm 850 mb temps, the sunshine, and the decent south
breeze, we should make 50 or better in most of the area. The
forecast will be a few degrees warmer than most of the guidance.

High clouds will likely start to increase late Friday.

The models have been trending a bit faster with the pacific front on
Saturday which will pinch off the warmth and bring a chance of
showers. There are still some timing differences on the models on
the arrival of the showers but it seems reasonable to have a
chance slight chance of showers from west to east late Friday night
with likely pops in most areas on Saturday.

A lot of the models continue to suggest a wave on the front later
Saturday into Saturday night. The timing, strength and location of
the wave are still up for debate. The forecast will continue with
showers likely Saturday night.

Long term Sunday through Tuesday
Not sure how much, if any, precip may be left over early on Sunday.

If there is lingering precip, there could be a transition to snow
before the precip shifts east. It does not look cold enough for snow
of any significance.

A secondary cold front and strong short wave aloft is progged to
drop across the lower great lakes late Sunday into Monday. Snow
showers will probably flare up, especially across the snowbelt.

Temperatures will drop back to near normal by Monday and below
normal by Tuesday. The ridge should be east of the area by Tuesday
night and the flow will already be coming around from the southwest
and it looks like another warm up mid week next week.

Aviation 12z Wednesday through Sunday
Trough now south of the forecast area. Only weather is some
flurries and patchy freezing drizzle in the east, which should
improve by mid morning. With NW flow still chance for a few show
showers in the snowbelt. Clouds gradually scattered from the
west overnight as high pressure builds in
outlook... Non-vfr possible late Friday night into Saturday
night in -shra.

Marine
Strong low pressure will continue to move northeast off the coast
and west winds will continue to diminish on lake erie and veer
northwest. A trough of low pressure swill linger over the eastern
great lakes today into tonight, then high pressure will slide
across the lake on Thursday and winds will back to south southwest.

The southwest flow will continue until the next front crosses the
lake on Sunday. Winds will become brisk but gale force winds are not
expected.

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.
