Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Cleveland OH 105 PM EST Sat Dec 14 2019

SYNOPSIS. Low pressure over southern West Virginia will move northeast today and deepen rapidly. High pressure will build southeast through the central Great Lakes tonight through Sunday. Another low pressure system will move northeast through the Ohio Valley late Monday and Monday night and off the New England coast Tuesday. A ridge of high pressure will build northeast into the eastern Great Lakes through mid week followed by an Alberta Clipper Thursday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH SUNDAY/. Observations this morning have trended much cooler than model guidance originally suggested, especially for inland areas across northeast Ohio and northwest Pennsylvania. For this reason, have increased snowfall amounts through tonight. This has lead to an upgrade to a Winter Storm Warning for southern Erie county for 6 to 9 inches of snow and a Winter Weather Advisory for northern Erie county and Crawford County for 3 to 6 inches of snow. Other parts of the snowbelt area, including Lake, Geauga, and Ashtabula counties should receive 2 to 5 inches of snow. Did consider adding Geauga and Ashtabula to the Winter Weather Advisory but decided to hold off right now due to higher uncertainty for those areas.

Original Discussion . An upper level trough of low pressure will move east across the Great Lakes and become negatively tilted by later this morning. The transition of the upper level trough will cause low pressure over southern West Virginia to rapidly intensify later this afternoon. The low will initially bring abundant moisture to the local area and then as the flow shifts around to the north, colder air will be forced south and this should change the precipitation over to all snow from west to east. Snow could be mixed with the rain over the western half of the forecast area through the morning hours. This will be a difficult forecast for northwest Pennsylvania because the changeover timing is highly dependent on how fast the cold air descends through the column. Model soundings indicate gradual cooling aloft and the surface being the last to go below freezing. Expecting heaviest snow to occur in northwest Pennsylvania to occur this afternoon and evening and then transition to lake effect that will affect northeast Ohio as well. Inversion height will rise to around 7000 feet tonight and enough synoptic moisture lingers to support snow. There is the possibility that we could see higher snow accumulations overnight depending on how organized the lake effect becomes. Snow threat diminishes Sunday afternoon and evening as inversion settles down and drier air works into the region. Therefore, will go ahead and hoist a winter weather advisory for inland Erie county in Pennsylvania. Snow accumulations of 4 to 6 inches can be expected in the advisory area. Lesser accumulations expected along the lakeshore and south of Erie county.

For the rest of the forecast area, expecting the rain/snow mix in the west at Toledo/Findlay and mainly rain elsewhere. Then as low pulls out to the east, the threat for precipitation outside of the snowbelt areas diminishes.

Temperatures will likely max out by mid day across the area ahead of the cold air advection and will see colder temperatures tonight. Cold air advection will continue through tomorrow with highs in the lower 30s.

SHORT TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/. Snow showers will be ending or diminishing to flurries fairly quickly Sunday evening. The flow will be backing with a brief stay of high pressure Sunday evening. The next system originating from the Texas panhandle will develop and move to the lower Ohio Valley for Monday night/Tuesday. With cold air initially in place and warm air advancing aloft, this system is likely to yield a wintry mix, especially across the southern/southeastern counties. Have freezing rain chances mentioned, but the track of the low will be critical and will need to closely monitor. This system may yield a Winter Weather Advisory for the area Monday into Monday night. Did limit PoPs some Sunday night/early Monday with an initial weak wave and a more southern track. Colder air filters in behind this system with a changeover to all snow Monday night. Snow departs Tuesday with dry air and backing flow. Lake effect to take over though late Tuesday night with another surge of colder air and deeper moisture. After temperatures staying within an upper 20 to low/mid 30s range from Sunday night through Tuesday, Tuesday night's lows are expected to drop into the teens.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/. With the surge of colder air for Wednesday/Thursday and a continued west-northwest flow, lake effect snow will be a possibility. Will need to refine precip chances for the snowbelt with coming days. There is a lot of variation in the amount of moisture that will be available. Toward Friday, the upper ridge begins to build/shift overhead. Therefore for Wed/Thu will have highs in the upper 20s/lower 30s respectively, moderating to the mid/upper 30s for Friday.

AVIATION /18Z Saturday THROUGH Thursday/. A mix of VFR to LIFR expected across the local area as low pressure moves northeast along the Appalachian Mountains. This system will continue to bring bring a rain/snow mix that will transition to all snow as colder air moves into the area behind the low. The uncertainty with the forecast continues to remain with surface temperature, which will play a huge role in precipitation type. For now, plan on mostly rain/snow mix transitioning to all snow over the next few hours. Some improvement of conditions will take place later tonight as low pressure pulls out to the northeast. Lake effect snow is expected to develop tonight, impacting mainly KERI but also possibly at KCLE and KYNG. Northwest winds will increase to 10 to 15 knots with gusts of 20 to 25 knots as they back to out of the west by this evening. Winds because to decrease right around 18 UTC Sunday.

OUTLOOK. Non-VFR possible Monday and Tuesday with periods of rain and/or snow. Freezing rain may also be possible on Monday. Non-VFR possible with lake effect snow on Tuesday and Wednesday.

MARINE. Have made timing and areal adjustments to the upcoming Small Craft Advisory with the latest wind and wave guidance. Deepening low pressure moving from the mid-Atlantic to New England today will increase winds on the lake and bring them around from the north to the west-northwest. West winds will continue from tonight into Sunday with a peak a solid 30 knots. Not anticipating any Gale concerns though with the low center quite removed from the local area. Wind/waves diminish/subside later Sunday. Winds will back with a brief stay of high pressure Sunday night, but respond to low pressure moving from the mid-Mississippi Valley to West Virginia between Monday and Tuesday. Northeast to northwest winds will make for a choppy lake early Tuesday. Will likely need a Small Craft Advisory by Tuesday evening through Wednesday with a stronger west- northwest flow between an advancing cold front cross the Great Lakes and a building high across the Ohio Valley.

CLE WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. OH . None. PA . Winter Weather Advisory until 1 PM EST Sunday for PAZ001-003. Winter Storm Warning until 1 PM EST Sunday for PAZ002. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory from 4 PM this afternoon to 10 PM EST Sunday for LEZ147>149. Small Craft Advisory from 10 PM this evening to 10 AM EST Sunday for LEZ143-144.
