Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Cleveland OH 708 AM EST Fri Mar 5 2021

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will remain across the Midwest today. A weak trough will settle south across the eastern Great Lakes tonight, pulling a weak cold front south across the area. High pressure will expand to the Ohio Valley on Sunday then shift to the southeastern states by Monday allowing a warm front to lift north across the region.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH SATURDAY/. The near term forecast will remain under the influence of a cool northwest flow on the western periphery of an upper level trough over New England. A piece of energy will rotate westward around the upper trough tonight, pushing a weak cold front south across the eastern Great Lakes. A secondary shortwave originating over Central Canada will dive south across the Great Lakes on Saturday, leading to additional deepening of the upper level trough. At the surface, high pressure is centered over the Upper Midwest, with a dry airmass and clear skies persisting across most of Ohio today. The northwest flow will focus some cloud cover from the upstream lakes towards NE Ohio and NW Pennsylvania. It will take some time to develop, but we will see an increase in flurries or light snow showers in Pennsylvania this afternoon. Not expecting any accumulation today but an uptick in activity is expected overnight as the trough pivots westward after midnight. Moisture depth remains a limiting factor but we do see a marginal increase up to 6-7K feet late tonight into Saturday. Minor accumulations of generally 1-2 inches are possible for inland Erie County overnight through Saturday with lesser amounts extending into Crawford County. Snow bands are expected to gradually shift towards New York through the day on Saturday. With high pressure oriented towards the Ohio Valley, we occasionally see surface winds back faster than models expect, causing this shift to occur faster. If this does occur then snowfall totals may be reduced.

With lots of sun today, temperatures in NW Ohio will recover several degrees from yesterday and top out near normal. Meanwhile little change from yesterday is expected in eastern portions of the forecast area where the cool airmass remains in place and wind chills are starting out in the single digits in some areas. Low temperatures will dip into the 20s again tonight, with expanding cloud cover having an effect on temperatures in the east. Temperatures will drop back a couple degrees behind the front for on Saturday.

SHORT TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/. By Saturday night, vorticity on the backside of the upper-level trough will be working its way southeast across the eastern CWA. Most available model guidance doesn't have any accumulating precipitation during this time period, but most models do have thick low-level cloud cover with some amount of lift from vorticity advection, along with 850 mb temperatures around -15 C. So despite no accumulating precipitation in derived model output, other parameters suggest that it's likely there will be at least some scattered lake enhanced snow showers or flurries late Saturday night and perhaps into early parts of Sunday across northwest Pennsylvania and maybe far northeast Ohio. Will keep a slight chance PoP for now and see how future model forecasts look.

High pressure builds in from the northwest, centered over the region by Sunday. Below normal temperatures expected during the overnight period Saturday night, due to radiational cooling with light winds and decreasing cloud cover (except northwest Pennsylvania). Daytime highs on Sunday may actually reach near normal as mostly sunny skies work to counteract the cool airmass that will accompany the surface high. Initially, it appears that Sunday night would be another cold night but as the high moves off to the east, light southwesterly winds develop, which may be enough to keep low temperatures near normal (or least least only slightly below normal).

By Monday, the beginning of a big pattern change is expected as the surface high moves solidly out of our CWA, centered over the southeast CONUS by Monday afternoon. Southwesterly winds will continue through the day, advecting warm air into the region. The entire region will experience above normal temperatures though with still a fairly wide range in high temperatures (upper 50s for northwest Ohio to mid-upper 40s for northwest Pennsylvania).

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Above normal temperatures expected through the entirety of the long term forecast, with the possibility for 60 degree high temperatures, especially by Wednesday and Thursday. Tuesday will probably be the "nicest" day of the week, with only partly cloudy skies and highs ranging from the mid 50s to low 60s.

Precipitation is also forecast in the long term, from Wednesday afternoon onward. This is associated with low pressure that develops over the Great Plains and moves across the Midwest and Great Lakes regions. Confidence is very high that there will be several periods of precipitation at points between Wednesday and Friday, though perhaps there is less confidence in the evolution of precipitation, exact time periods, and precipitation amounts. It seems most likely time periods are Wednesday night and Thursday night, though it still remains to be seen. Ensemble guidance is showing the possibility for a good soaking rain through the end of the week with GEFS showing approximately 50% chance for one inch of rain and ENS mean near one inch through the end of the week as well. Would like to seem more run-to-run consistency with placement of QPF before there is concern of flooding chances.

AVIATION /12Z Friday THROUGH Tuesday/. Satellite imagery depicts clear skies across the area except for a band of lake effect clouds focused towards NW Pennsylvania with VFR clouds at ERI. Some expansion of the cloud field is expected into NE Ohio and may return to YNG. Flurries may develop at ERI this afternoon with better chances late tonight as a trough swings south across the eastern Great Lakes. NW winds will be breezy this afternoon with gusts to 20-25 knots between 17-23Z.

Outlook . Non-VFR conditions are possible with snow showers at ERI into Saturday, possibly returning on Sunday.

MARINE. Northwest winds of 10 to 20 knots continue across Lake Erie through Saturday as surface high pressure very slowly builds into the Great Lakes region, becoming centered over Lake Erie on Sunday. As this high moves off the Atlantic Coast by midweek, southwest to south winds develop over Lake Erie, persisting through the rest of the forecast period. These winds could reach 20 knots by Wednesday.
