Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Cleveland OH 402 PM EDT Mon Jun 17 2024

An upper level ridge will persist over the region through this week, resulting in widespread near-record temperatures across the area. The next system won't arrive until the end of the weekend.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are developing across the forecast area this afternoon, as convective temperatures are being reached in the mid 90s and surface dew points start broaching the 70 degree mark across northern Ohio. However, with no real forcing other than the diurnal forcing, coverage is just scattered across the region. However, the environment for these storms is generally supportive for strong to severe convection with SBCAPE values reaching over 3500 J/kg, DCAPE values exceeding 1000 J/kg, and low level lapse rates in excess of 8 C/km, which will support robust, quickly growing updrafts that will support severe sized hail and tall enough cores that could descend as downbursts with winds over 60 MPH. Several Severe Thunderstorm Warnings and Special Weather Statements are ongoing and the environment appears favorable for strong to severe storms through early evening. Convection will move east of the area later this evening and subside with a more stable environment with the loss of diurnal heating. Residual cloud cover across the region from this afternoon's storms could remain for some portion of tonight and help keep temperatures slightly elevated with lows likely not escaping the 70s for most of the forecast area.

Tuesday appears to be a rinse and repeat of today. An abnormally warm summer air mass will allow for temperatures to exceed 90 degrees and dew point values will once again approach the 70 degree mark. This will allow for heat index values to exceed 100 degrees and the Heat Advisory will remain valid. Temperatures should hit convective temperatures again with the diurnal cycle and scattered showers and storms will be present again. Storms could once again have a bite with an generally unstable environment to support some strong to severe wind and hail. Any convection will also taper off temperatures and heat index values from hitting the Heat Advisory values. Residual clouds and abnormally warm air mass will have another dry, but warm Tuesday night with lows likely staying above 70 degrees.

Strong upper high will maintain itself over the eastern CONUS through the short term period with southerly flow, deep moisture advection, and steamy temperatures continuing through mid to late week. As stated in the previous discussion from last night, the main challenge is how much convection occurs during this time and how much that will impact the temperatures and dew points. Regardless, temperatures will likely climb well into the 90s each day with spots in NW OH most likely reaching the upper 90s to around 100 degrees. There won't be a ton of respite overnight; overnight lows will be in the 70s with the warmest temps expected in urban areas and dew points in the upper 60s to lower 70s. In locations that don't receive rainfall, heat indices will likely climb into the upper 90s to lower 100s and the Heat Advisory remains in place through the entirety of the long term period.

As far as precip chances go, maintained slight chance PoPs during peak diurnal heating/instability; shower and thunderstorm placement will rely on the exact placement of the upper ridging over the area in addition to any boundaries from daily lake breezes since there won't be much lift otherwise. Similar to today, there will be quite a bit of buoyancy and moisture in the atmosphere so any storms that develop could produce gusty downbursts and locally torrential rainfall.

By Friday, the upper ridge will largely weaken and flatten out, but deep southerly flow and warm air advection will persist through Saturday so still expect highs in the 90s with heat indices in the upper 90s to lower 100s on Friday. Dew points may begin to decline slightly Saturday, so heat indices will likely remain in the 90s. As with previous days, there may be diurnal convection so there are slight chance PoPs during each afternoon.

Still some uncertainty in the time of arrival of the next system, but a cold front will likely slowly advance east towards the area late in the week and into the weekend with a cold front likely sweeping across the area at some point Sunday or Sunday night. This will deliver the next widespread chance of showers and thunderstorms and finally some relief from the heat to the CWA By Sunday, highs will be back into the upper 80s to lower 90s with much cooler highs in the 80s (even 70s in NW PA!) likely by Monday.

AVIATION /18Z Monday THROUGH Saturday/
VFR conditions are at the terminals this afternoon with the exception being any terminal being impacts by a scattered thunderstorm. Storms will continue across northern Ohio over the next several hours. Some storms have had a bite with them with gusts over 30 kt but confidence in that impact at a terminal is very low. Convection will subside with the diurnal cycle tonight and trend to VFR. Will need to monitor for fog overnight, where convection occurred the atmosphere has some chance to decouple.
Afternoon cumulus and new shower/storm chances will be possible toward the end of the TAF period. Winds will favor southerly through the period.

Outlook...Primarily VFR expected through Friday. Isolated thunderstorms are possible Tuesday afternoon, but confidence is low.

Outside of the potential for isolated showers and thunderstorms (best chance this afternoon/evening and Tuesday), quiet marine conditions with offshore winds under 10 knots and brief periods of light onshore flow with daily lake breezes are expected through Saturday. Do not expect any marine headlines this week.

A prolonged stretch of hot weather is expected this week.
Temperatures are forecast to approach or exceed record highs on several days. The records for Monday, June 17 to Friday, June 21 are listed below for our official climate sites.
