Low pressure will track across the lower lakes this evening
dragging an arctic front across the forecast area. Lake effect
snow showers will develop Sunday and linger into Monday when
high pressure builds in.
Near term through Sunday
Low pressure system just SW of fdy with current ht falls near cle.
Low is forecast to track dragging arctic front across the area.
The arctic front should be SW of the forecast area toward
midnight local. There are some thunderstorms with the system but
the best dynamics and shear is south of the warm front.
Kept the flood watch up basically south of a yng to fdy line.
The area has received between 1 1 2 to 2 inches with a another
inch or so possible this evening.
Pushed back wind advisory until 7pm. Warm front just now into
central ohio so the winds have not mixed down yet. Once the
arctic front moves through the NW winds will increase to 25 to
35 mph with higher gusts.
Rain will move east of the forecast area overnight. Could see
some snow in the higher elevations of the snowbelt late tonight,
with a dusting or so possible by daybreak.
Short term Sunday night through Tuesday night
The 850 mb temps plunge to -8c by daybreak but by then moisture
is shifting east. Best chance for lake effect snow will be late
Sunday into Sunday night when 850 temps dip to -12c and an upper
level short wave moves across the eastern lakes. Still looks to
be below advisory criteria.
The short term begins Monday with high pressure in the over the
lower ohio valley. Flow will be off lake erie and 850mb temps -7c
although shear will be increasing. Would expect we begin with snow
showers but they will be decreasing quickly as dry air and high
pressure continue to build and winds back. Elsewhere expect
increasing sunshine. The next chance for precip will come Tuesday
evening and Tuesday night as another cold front moves through the
area. Will hold precip off until after 00z Wednesday and begin with
a chance of either rain or snow with highest chance northeast. After
about 3z will change precip to all snow but will decrease pops as
colder but drier air moves in which should hamper any significant
lake effect. Highs in the 40s and 50s Monday and Tuesday. Highs in
the 30s Wednesday.
Long term Wednesday through Saturday
Not many changes to long term. It looks like we will be able to
sneak in a dry and quiet thanksgiving and also a dry Friday. Low
pressure will move southeast across the northern lakes Friday night
into Saturday. The usual timing and placement differences are
present in the 12z guidance. But... It looks it could precip at some
point. Will go ahead with chance pops both periods with best chances|
across the northern end of the area. Precip type remains in
question Friday night but Saturday should see all rain. Given model
differences going no higher than low chance pops seems reasonable.
Thursday will be a chilly day but temps will warm back into the 40s
for the end of the period.
Aviation 00z Sunday through Thursday
The the back edge of the main area of precip is currently along
the i-71 corridor with a second area of rain over NW oh. Both
of these will continue to move east across the area this
evening. The surface cold front should be to cle and mfd in an
hour or so and east of the area by 06z. Expect CIGS behind the
front to dip to ifr for several hours with improvement beginning
in the west late tonight. Sunday will bring a combination of
MVFR andVFR cigs. Have not hit the lake effect very hard at eri
as warm air coming from the lake should prevent a changeover to
Perhaps the biggest story of the night will be winds. Expect
strong NW winds to develop overnight with gusts in the 35 to 40
knot range all locations. Speeds will gradually diminish on
Outlook... Non-vfr continues into Monday across northeast ohio
and northwest pennsylvania. A brief period of non-vfr possible
Tuesday night all areas.
Will continue with the gale warning as it is. Low pressure will
move northeast of the lake this evening. Winds behind the low will
increase out of the northwest to 35-40 knot gales this evening
continuing through the night and into Sunday morning. Winds will
remain out of the northwest through Sunday night before backing to
southwest by Monday. Wind speeds will remain 25 to 30 knots Sunday
afternoon through much of Sunday night. Wind speeds will remain at
or above 20 knots much of the period Monday through Tuesday before
dropping back to 10 to 15 knots Wednesday and Thursday.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
