Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Cleveland OH 142 AM EST Wed Dec 11 2019

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will briefly build northeast through the Ohio valley across the area tonight. A cold front will push southeast through the Great Lakes into the area on Wednesday. High pressure will quickly return to the area, building east across the region Wednesday night, becoming centered over the east coast Thursday and Thursday night.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/. Have updated the snow totals for the overnight to 1 to 3 inches for lakeshore Ashtabula and both Erie PA zones. Updated the Winter Weather Advisory with better wording for overnight totals.

Previous Discussion . A little ripple is showing up in the radar imagery at this time over the western half of Lake Erie. This ripple is the result of a weak trough moving east across the area and will cause the lake effect snow band to shift north over the next few hours. Latest short term models suggest another band will develop along the shore later this evening into the early morning and then the whole thing will shift north of the area by morning. Looking at total snow accumulations in the band of 4 to 6 inches. Some locally higher amounts are possible. Will keep winter weather advisory in effect where it is currently. Starting to see some clearing pushing in from the west at this time and high clouds will continue to push off to the east overnight and will see a gradual reduction in cloud cover over the southern areas. Cold air advection will take place overnight and with clearing will see temperatures in the 20s for lows.

Original Discussion . A weakening surface trough over Lake Erie will attempt to push southward into northern OH and northwest PA late this afternoon into this evening, while pressure rises continue northeastward through the Ohio Valley into the southern Great Lakes. A modest band of snow has formed ahead of this trough over the lake, and is expected to push onshore over the next several hours, perhaps dropping a quick 1-3 inches of snow. Confidence is low on the exact evolution of this snow and lake effect/lake enhancement through tonight across the snow belt. Hi-res guidance continues to depict the surface trough pushing southeast across the snow belt and weakening, with secondary shoreline convergence setting up northeast of Cleveland, which seems to be playing out with latest radar trends. The models depict one or two lake bands becoming dominant and pushing onshore across the snow belt, with several models favoring a band into northern Geauga/Lake and another into Erie PA.

The current evolution on radar is a bit off from the model depictions spatially and timing wise, but generally on the right track. It seems the potential for heaviest snowfall will occur over the next 4-5 hours, with lingering synoptic forcing coinciding with good moisture from 900-750mb. However, dendritic growth will be minimal with the best lift centered much lower in the cloud layer, and some fairly dry air in the lowest 3kft. Instability parameters are marginal as well, with lake induced inversion heights peaking around 8-8.5 kft. After 00Z, drier 925mb air will work south across the lake, which could limit snowfall as well. Overall, kept the forecast fairly similar to the previous, with accumulations centered a touch farther north in the 2-4 inch range through tonight. Some higher amounts up to 5 inches by tomorrow morning are possible in the higher terrain of Erie PA. For now, with lower confidence in the evolution of this snow, will not issue any headlines and will monitor closely for the next several hours to see how the bands are organizing.

Snow bands will diminish and push offshore around/after midnight as boundary layer flow begins to back more southwest, with continued drying of the cloud layer. By tomorrow morning, the flow should keep any bands offshore into western NY through at least midday. An upper vort max and accompanying surface front will quickly drop southeast through the Great Lakes Wednesday morning. This now appears to be a relative glancing blow for the local area, but enough of a cold punch to reactivate lake effect into the local area, mainly northwest PA. A brief shot of 850mb moisture will follow this wave passage, with winds veering a bit more northwest Wednesday night. Dry air looks to quickly work back across the region, so the snow potential should be limited temporally. Currently forecasting an additional 1-3 inches, with the highest amounts in eastern Erie PA. Snow will quickly diminish after midnight as high pressure build across the region.

SHORT TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT/. The short term begins Thursday with models showing broad high pressure centered over Pennsylvania. To our west, low pressure will be in western Iowa. This low will move northeast to the central Great Lakes and dissipate by Friday morning lifting a warm front northeast through the region as the high moves off the New England coast. Another low will move into the Dakotas. This low will move into the western lakes Friday into Saturday as another disturbance generates a coastal low in New England from the mid Atlantic coast. Moisture will return north into the region Friday with return flow out of the southeastern states with rain chances into mainly eastern Ohio and nwrn PA by Friday afternoon. Moisture deepens from the south Friday night into Saturday. Will have pops increase to likely for the eastern half of the area Friday night and Saturday. Precip may mix with a little snow late on Saturday far west but precip should be mostly rain. Highs Thursday in the mid 30s. Highs Friday and Saturday in the 40s.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. By Sunday, models show a dominant surface low over northern New England tracking northeast into Canada. To our west, high pressure will be moving east from Minnesota into Wisconsin. Between the two, a cold front will be forced south through the area during the day Sunday. Models begin to differ Sunday night with the ECMWF continuing to bring cold air in the the region while the GFS begins to warm advect. For now will side more with the ECMWF and continue the threat of mainly lake induced precip nern OH and nwrn PA. The ECMWF does eventually show this warm advection increasing into the area Monday into Tuesday ahead of low pressure moving through the mid Mississippi Valley into the lower Ohio Valley with moisture increasing across the area out of the southeast. Will keep pops in the chance category for now and go with mostly snow showers monday and a mix Tuesday.

AVIATION /06Z Wednesday THROUGH Sunday/. Main concern for the TAF period will be lake effect snow over extreme NE OH and NW PA. A band of moderate to heavy lake effect snow has developed northeast of KCLE and extends into KERI. Variable non-VFR conditions will be present with the snow at KERI over the next several hours with a mix of IFR and perhaps some LIFR. This band will lift north towards day break and conditions will improve to VFR by late morning at KERI. Elsewhere, a ridge of high pressure has allowed for dry air to enter the region and the low clouds have scattered out, leaving just high cirrus overhead. A slight pocket of MVFR was noted at KCAK but this will be short lived.

A secondary cold front will swing through the area this afternoon and bring lower VFR clouds back to the region. Snow and non-VFR is likely to return to KERI with some heavy snow possible. Winds will pick up with gusts to 20 kts with the front.

OUTLOOK. Non-VFR possible Friday night into Saturday with a snow/rain mix to start, before transitioning to all rain.

MARINE. Winds increase by late morning across the east end of the lake with low end gales likely into the afternoon. So with that said we will go ahead and hoist the gale warning now from Conneaut into the NY open waters. The warning will go from 9 am through 7 pm.

Previous Discussion . Will extend the small craft advisory across the western half of Lake Erie through 4am Thursday. Winds this afternoon have remained near the 20 knot range on the western basin and are not expected to decrease significantly overnight before possibly rising a few knots on Wednesday. Would have needed on for Wednesday anyway so will just leave headline up. Also, for now, will continue with the gale watch as is and allow later shifts to get another model run in. At this time, current guidance touches gale force for a few hours from about noon through 22Z or so. For Wednesday night, winds will begin to diminish as high pressure begins to build in from the west. The high will cross the lake Wednesday evening causing winds to drop to under 10 knots by morning. The high will move to our east Thursday as low pressure approaches the western lakes driving southerly flow at 10 to 15 knots. Southerly flow will increase to 10 to 20 knots Thursday night into Friday as the pressure gradient tightens slightly. Winds will remain fairly light through Saturday before increasing Saturday night into Sunday from the west to 15 to 25 knots as deep low pressure moves through New England and high pressure moves into the western lakes.
