Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Cleveland OH 338 AM EST Fri Jan 28 2022

SYNOPSIS. An Arctic cold front will continue to move generally southeastward across the region this morning. Behind the front, a high pressure ridge will build very slowly from the west and northwest through Saturday night. A clipper low pressure system should move eastward across the central Great Lakes on Sunday and allow the trailing occluded front to sweep eastward through our area.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH SATURDAY/. A trough aloft digs southeastward over our CWA today before its axis traverses the area from west to east tonight. At the surface, an Arctic front extended southwestward from just north and west of Jamestown, NY to just east and south of Findlay as of 3:10 AM EST. This front will continue sweeping southeastward and should exit the rest of our CWA by about 10 AM. Behind the front, a thermal surface trough will linger over and near the Great Lakes through tonight while a surface high pressure ridge builds very slowly from the Upper Midwest.

Periods of light snow are expected via low-level convergence/ascent along the surface cold front and for several hours after surface frontal passage as moist isentropic ascent occurs along the upper-reaches of the front. All synoptic snow associated with the front should depart our CWA by midday. As cold air deepens behind the front and the mean low-level flow veers from NW'erly to N'erly, multiple bands of light lake-effect snow (LES) are expected generally southeast and south of Lake Erie, especially downwind of the central and eastern basins where the lake remains ice-free offshore. Lake-induced CAPE and LES intensity are expected to wane this afternoon via a lowering subsidence inversion accompanying the building ridge and low- level dry air advection. The light LES bands should dissipate by this late afternoon or early evening for the same aforementioned reasons. Any additional snow accumulations should be an inch or less.

Today's high temperatures should mainly reach the upper 20's before readings drop, overall, behind the Arctic front. Temperatures should reach roughly the 10F to 15F range by nightfall this evening. Fair weather is expected CWA-wide overnight tonight. Low temperatures should mainly reach the -3F to 5F range, with the coldest readings expected west of I-71 where partial clearing and very light or calm surface winds should promote greater radiational cooling. Minimum wind chills should reach 0F to nearly -15F. A Wind Chill Advisory may be needed for portions of interior northwest OH and mid-OH Saturday morning. Will let the day shift reevaluate that potential need.

Fair weather is expected for our entire region on Saturday as stabilizing high pressure at the surface and aloft builds from the west. Very shallow lake-effect stratocumuli should continue streaming generally southward and then southeastward from Lake Erie, especially essentially along and east of I-71. Elsewhere, mainly clear to partly cloudy conditions are expected. Daytime highs should only reach the mid to upper teens. However, highs closer to 10F are expected in the higher terrain of northwest PA.

SHORT TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/. Going to continue to run on the higher side of model data when it comes to the clipper system approaching late Saturday night/early Sunday, and pushing through during the day Sunday. There is not a tremendous amount of forcing/lift available but there should be a decent thickness in terms of saturation in the lower levels. The temperatures aloft are another potential issue here, where there will be some modest warm air advection that could relegate the saturation in the crystal growth layer to a short window, and again, out of phase with lift in that region. The result should be scattered snow showers where POPs may need to be increased in coming forecasts despite it being a likely lower QPF/snow forecast. A milder push of air gets the area back towards freezing prior to the low pressure passing through the CWA, but capping temperatures in the mid to upper 20s for much of the area Sunday, and even a bit cooler in the eastern zones of NW PA. High pressure eases in for Monday before it begins to make a quick exit towards the east coast.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. The potential for a brief pattern change is still the focus of the long term forecast as zonal flow becomes southwesterly in response to a digging upper trough over the high plains to the west. This upper system will be progressive and will also intensify midweek, and expect it to move to the eastern half of the CWA fairly quickly. Long term forecast models are focused on cyclogenesis over the northern Gulf Coast/lower Mississippi Valley to eventually affect our area. This source region for the cyclogenesis may allow a track northeastward where surface low reformation east of the Appalachians might not be as likely. Regardless, still looking at a potential warm surge of air and moisture midweek ahead of the surface low, and should be prepared for a period of rain as the system organizes to the south southwest. However, it looks like the northern and southern branches of the jet stream could be working together to draw a sharply colder airmass back into the Great Lakes/Ohio Valley in the wake of the low late Thursday through Friday. So the track, like usual, will become crucial as to how much of this potential event would be rain versus snow, and if it will even materialize. Will be watching closely at the trends going forward as there could be a myriad of different impacts with a system like this.

AVIATION /06Z Friday THROUGH Tuesday/. A surface cold front just northwest of KTOL at 5:55Z should sweep southeastward through our region through about 10Z/Fri. Behind the front, a surface trough lingers over and near the Great Lakes as a surface ridge attempts to build from the Upper Midwest. Surface winds shift from southwesterly to northerly with the cold frontal passage and should average 5 to 15 knots. Periods of light snow with MVFR visibility and widespread MVFR ceilings are expected along and ahead of the cold front. Brief IFR ceilings and visibility are possible with steadier snow. Behind the front, widespread MVFR ceilings persist. Scattered and light lake-effect snow showers with MVFR visibility are possible generally south of Lake Erie, especially before 21Z/Fri.

Outlook . Non-VFR possible with widespread snow showers Saturday night into Sunday. Scattered rain showers with non-VFR possible west of I-71 on Tuesday.

MARINE. Still expecting ice free areas of the open waters of Lake Erie to shrink through the weekend and into the beginning of next week as temperatures remain below freezing during this time. A cold front pushing through this early morning bringing north northeast winds 15- 20kts. High pressure moves in for the weekend with winds easing below 10kts, and expect wave heights to follow suit. Again, during this time, ice will likely continue form and squeeze the remaining open waters in the central and eastern basin.
