Synopsis
High pressure over the great lakes will continue to move northeast
of the area tonight. Low pressure will develop over the tennessee
valley region and move north into the ohio valley by Thursday night.

The low will become absorbed in an east coast low pressure system
Thursday night. The east coast low will develop near jacksonville,
florida tonight. Another area of high pressure will build northeast
across the southern states to ohio valley region by Friday night. A
cold front will sag south across the area Saturday night.

Near term through today
Update... Reworked weather grids overnight through Thursday
night. Main change for Thursday was to remove shower wording for
a more stratiform precip shield. Also found a few grids where
zr was collocated with above freezing temps so fixed those
issues.

Original... A potential winter type scenario is shaping up
across the local area in the next 12 to 24 hours. The upper
level pattern will begin to trend toward a progressive one as a
deep upper level low pressure system pivots slowly northeast
into the ohio valley by Thursday night. The upper level low will
slowly weaken and dissipate into a negatively tilted trough.

This will result in cyclogenesis in and around the tennessee
valley that will track northeast toward the local area.

Meanwhile, a coastal low will develop and move northeast along
the east coast and will eventually absorb the surface low
pressure system over our area.

The surface low pressure system will force moisture to stream north
toward the region. Initially, the lower levels will be quite dry
but we are expecting this layer to moisten over a few hours tonight
resulting in precipitation reaching the surface.

Model soundings are fairly certain freezing rain will occur across
the south but they suggest the air temperature will hug the zero
line in a fairly deep layer in the north. We think the
precipitation will be freezing rain that will transition to a mixed
precipitation over much of northern ohio. The exception will be
northwest pennsylvania and ashtabula where the onset of
precipitation will be later. Our concern is the potential for light
freezing rain drizzle that will last well into the evening tomorrow
evening. To downplay the impact of this event, we are only
expecting a light glazing of ice. Most impacts should be to
untreated surfaces.

As far as temperatures go, looking at lows into the 20s overnight as
cold air advection continues. Not much of a warm-up expected
Thursday expecting highs just above the freezing mark. Highs in the
northeast should be in the 30 to 32 degree range for the extended
freezing precipitation later into the evening.

Short term tonight through Saturday night
East coast storm will reach the new england states by Friday
afternoon. This will allow the next upper level trough to move into
the area which should provide an increase in snow chances. It doesnt
appear that the snow will be significant on Friday. We will need to
monitor the lake effect snow Friday night into Saturday across the
primary snowbelt. The next cold front will move into the central
great lakes by Saturday night.

Temperatures will be below seasonal averages. Highs generally int eh
upper 30s to around 40.

Long term Sunday through Wednesday
Frontal boundary will be in the region on Sunday. As some jet energy
moves across the region on Sunday night into Monday we should nudge
the boundary out of the region with a brief period of lake effect
snow showers possible. The troughiness then persists across the
central great lakes into Wednesday with chances of snow persisting
across the primary snowbelt. Something for us to watch but current
thinking is that amounts will remain on the light side.

High temperatures mainly in the 30s Sunday through Tuesday. Slightly
warmer on Wednesday. Lows in the 20s to around 30.

Aviation 06z Thursday through Monday
Expect a slowly lowering overcast through the night as moisture
continues to increase across the region.VFR conditions will
quickly transition over to ifr after daybreak as precip moves
into the area. For tol believe precip will be primarily snow
with some light accumulations. For the other terminals precip
should start off as snow then be a mix of rain, freezing rain,
sleet and snow through much of the day. As the storm system
moves out precip will transition to all snow.

Outlook... Non-vfr likely Thursday night area wide and in the
northeast Friday. Non-vfr again Saturday through Sunday.

Marine
High pressure over the region this afternoon will shift eastward
quickly as the storm system takes shape along the east coast. A
stronger upper level trough will cross the central great lakes on
Friday with increasing southwest to west winds. A small craft
advisory will be needed. High pressure will ridge northward toward
the lake from the ohio river valley Friday night into early
Saturday. The next cold front will be near lake erie Saturday night
into Sunday.
