Synopsis
High pressure will begin to move in from the west today becoming
centered over the area tonight into Thursday night. A cold front
will move through late Friday night into Saturday with high
pressure building back in towards the end of the weekend.

Near term through Thursday
A band of rain and snow will exit to the east of the area by 5
am. No snowfall accumulation will occur with this initial band
of precipitation. Winds have come around to the northwest and
north-northwest, which will allow for some minor lake-effect
snow showers flurries to develop early this morning from near
lorain county eastward. A shallow inversion is in place, topping
out around 5000 feet near cleveland and 6000 feet near erie,
pa. This will continue to lower as we head into the morning
hours. There is little moisture available in the snow growth
zone, so just expecting some flurries or light snow showers
through the morning hours with little to no accumulation most
areas. Some flurries will likely make their way well into the
secondary snowbelt.

The hills of northwest pennsylvania have a better chance at
seeing some minor accumulations from this morning into this
afternoon. Generally an inch or less of snow accumulation is
expected.

Western areas will see the low clouds break up later this
morning with some high clouds moving in during the afternoon.

Areas downwind of lake erie will see low clouds stick around
much of the day, but they should start to break up in the
cleveland area by late this afternoon. They will stick around
all day into tonight across far northeast oh into northwest pa.

Highs this afternoon will generally be in the mid-30s with lows
tonight falling into the middle and upper 20s.

High pressure moves in from the southwest tonight, bringing an
end to any lingering lake-effect snow showers. High pressure at
the surface will remain in control for the thanksgiving holiday.

Expect highs Thursday to rise into the middle 30s across inland
northwest pa and the upper 30s to lower 40s elsewhere. A partly
to mostly cloudy sky is expected with clouds breaking up across
western areas by the late afternoon evening hours.

Short term Thursday night through Saturday night
A weak cold front will cross the area Thursday night but it will be
dry for most locations. However there could be a few snow showers
around erie. We will then see a warming trend with most locations
reaching 45 to 50 degrees. Unfortunately when it gets warm this time
of year it is typically accompanied by gusty south to southwest
winds. The cold front will cross the region late Friday night into
Saturday morning. This front may not have all that much moisture to
lift until it interacts with lake erie. So that will produce the
best chances of precipitation across NE oh into NW pa. Rain should
change over to all snow as we approach midnight Saturday night.

Long term Sunday through Tuesday
As an upper level trough passes Saturday night into Sunday morning
we expect a period of lake effect snow to develop. Current thinking
lingers the snow showers into early Monday morning across NW pa.

Accumulations are expected but still enough uncertainty to keep us
from mentioning amounts at this point in time. High pressure takes
control of the region by Monday afternoon but quickly moves off the
middle atlantic coast on Tuesday. This will allow the next storm
system to move into the western great lakes Tuesday night into
Wednesday.

Sunday will be the cold day of the long term with highs in the 30s.

Warmer Monday with highs in the 40s. All locations should reach the
upper 40s to lower 50s Tuesday into Wednesday.

Aviation 06z Wednesday through Sunday
A band of showers, mixed with some snow at times, continues to
move over the east half of the area. A change to all snow is
expected for a brief time across far eastern ohio into northwest
pa. Downwind of the lake some light snow showers could continue
into the morning hours. Clouds will break across western areas
in the morning, central areas in the afternoon, and far eastern
areas late evening into Wednesday night. SW flow will become w
right behind the front and then NW a couple hours after that.

Outlook... The next chance for non-vfr conditions will come
Saturday as another cold front moves through.

Marine
Winds will continue to decrease on lake erie as high pressure ridges
into the area from the middle mississippi river valley. The
northwesterly winds will continue strong enough to keep waves in the
3 to 5 foot range from vermilion to ripley. The larger waves
lingering longest from geneva-on-the-lake to ripley. High pressure
will be short lived as the the next weak frontal boundary moves
across the area Thursday night. The next storm system to impact the
lake will be over the weekend. Southwesterly winds will increase
Friday night into Saturday and may reach small craft advisory
levels, greater than 21 knots, early Saturday. A small craft
advisory will definitely be needed in the wake of a cold front
Saturday afternoon into Sunday.

Cle watches warnings advisories
Oh... None.

Pa... None.

Marine... Small craft advisory until 3 pm est this afternoon for
lez145>149.
