Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Pittsburgh PA 1254 AM EST Sat Jan 16 2021
SYNOPSIS. Colder temperatures and intermittent snow showers through the weekend.
NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM THIS MORNING/. Overnight period in good shape. Updated cloud cover in line with the latest satellite imagery and model data. Temperatures were refreshed with a blend of hires model guidance.
SHORT TERM /6 AM THIS MORNING THROUGH 6 PM SUNDAY/. Scattered snow showers will develop in Ohio this morning and then expand northeast during the afternoon as another upper low moves overhead. With a shift in the wind from the west, orographic enhancement is likely for an extend period of time. Most locations will see less than an inch in accumulation, with the ridges being the focal point for higher amounts.
Ridging aloft on Sunday will keep most of the day dry. Cannot rule out a passing snow shower or flurry, but with the lack of strong cold advection and upper moisture, these look to be few and far between.
Snow shower chances will increase late in the day across Ohio as the next 500mb low approaches.
Temperatures Sunday will be near seasonal values.
LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/. 500 low rushes northeastward Sunday night which will decrease the snow shower coverage. In the wake of the exiting upper low, heights will briefly rise and most of the snow shower activity would be confined to the I-80 corridor and ridges with the minor cold advection and westerly winds.
Periodic snow showers are possible through the rest of the week as a series of shortwave troughs cross the region.
AVIATION /06Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/. Areas of IFR to MVFR fog and stratus are expected overnight with low lvl moisture in place from earlier pcpn. Widespread MVFR is expected with sct -shsn later this morning thru aftn as an upper low moves across the region. With low convective thresholds, snow showers should become enhanced this aftn with tempo IFR for most ports.
Snow showers should taper off this eve as the upper low shifts east and temps fall below convective thresholds, though widespread MVFR cigs should continue with low lvl moisture in place.
Outlook. Restrictions and ocnl shsn are likely thru Tue with a series of crossing troughs.
PBZ WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. PA . None. OH . None. WV . None.

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 numerous 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.
