Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Pittsburgh PA 343 PM EST Sun Jan 16 2022

SYNOPSIS. Low pressure moving across the Mid-Atlantic region will result in significant snowfall for tonight and Monday. Afterward, cold weather will persist all week long with intermittent snow chances.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH MONDAY/.

Changes for the late aftn update included the insertion of a freezing rain mention for areas east of I 79 given some initial reports south of I 70 as well as a model trend of strong warm advection support for that scenario. Overnight totals for those areas will likely be degraded a bit given the retardation of dendritic growth. Nevertheless, deformation on Monday will support continued and prolonged snowfall, so snow totals remain the dominant feature of this event.

Elsewhere, the expected frontogenetic band with 1-2 inch/hour rates is also likely to be shunted slightly westward and a storm total tweak was completed for that eventuality.

Gusty wind is expected to develop in the eastern WV ridges on Monday, and will likely result in blowing snow and lowered visibility.

SHORT TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/. Once low pressure propagates northeast of the area, additional vorticity advection will move sely over the Great Lakes and result in lingering ascent, with lake enhancement and upsloping. Snow ratios will be higher with cold advection, so additional accumulation of up to an inch area wide, and an inch or two in the Laurel Mtns and ridges of WV is expected by Tuesday morning.

Quiet weather is expected on Tuesday with nwly flow, highs near freezing.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. Another low pressure system, though warmer in nature, could move through the Ohio Valley mid-week and should bring the chance for rain initially, potentially mixed with snow, and lake enhanced/upslope snow showers in cold advection proceeding the cold frontal passage.

Long range model ensembles indicate that an active shortwave pattern will continue with below climatologically normal temperature by the end of the period.

AVIATION /21Z SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. Condition degradation is underway in snow with advance of low pressure. Expect widespread IFR to develop and persist into Monday morning. Conditions will improve from the west on Monday, however, cold northwest flow will result in MVFR cigs and intermittent IFR vsby in shsn.

Outlook. Widespread VFR conditions are likely to return mid day Tuesday under building high pressure.
