Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Cleveland OH 937 PM EDT Sun Apr 5 2020

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will expand overhead tonight and then gradually shift to the East Coast through Monday. A warm front will lift north into northern Ohio and stall Monday night through Tuesday night. A wave of low pressure will ride east along the front Tuesday night and Wednesday pulling it back south as a cold front.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/. It will be a crisp night. Temperatures are falling nicely with good radiational cooling. Will continue with lows around/slightly below freezing. Some patchy fog still possible, but not enough areal extent to mention in the forecast. Previous discussion follows.

Area of stratus over the region continues to gradually erode but will take much of the evening to clear the whole area. Eventual clearing is expected as high pressure expands overhead with increasing subsidence. Some patches of mid-level cloud will move overhead tonight with broad ridging aloft, but expecting a fairly good window of cooling with light winds. Lows tonight will be cooler and may approach the freezing mark in many areas. As high pressure moves off to the east on Monday, temperatures are expected to make a good recovery beneath passing high cloud. Most areas will see temperatures into the low 60s except near Lake Erie where lake breezes will develop and keep temperatures cooler.

By Monday night, a warm front is expected to lift north into the area. Good moisture advection will overspread the area from west to east driven by shortwave energy rounding the ridge aloft. Although initial echos on radar Monday evening may struggle to reach the ground as we overcome dry low level air, PW values increase to over an inch overnight with even a few thunderstorms possible. Thunderstorms are expected to remain elevated but could bring a quarter to half inch of rain to areas generally along and south of a line from Toledo to Akron to Youngstown. Low temperatures on Monday night will range from the lower 40s in PA to lower 50s closer to Central Ohio.

SHORT TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/. By Tuesday morning low pressure will be located over Minnesota with an associated warm front extending southeast across northern Indiana and portions of central/northern Ohio. This warm front will make its way northeast across the forecast area through Tuesday afternoon/evening, likely stalling somewhere over Lake Erie and parts of northeast Ohio and northwest Pennsylvania. The aforementioned low pressure will traverse east across lower Michigan and the lower Great Lakes late Tuesday night.

Southwesterly winds behind the warm front will advect warm, moist air into the region with increasing temperatures and moisture through the afternoon/evening hours. This will result in an environment with favorable for severe weather. Instability will be okay with most models having at least 1000 J/kg of MLCAPE by 00 UTC Wednesday for much of northern and central Ohio. Mid levels are expected to cool down ahead of a shortwave trough with forecast modeled 500mb temperatures of around -18 to -20 C producing 500-700 mb lapse rates around -7 to -8 C/km Tuesday evening into Tuesday overnight. 0-6 km bulk wind shear is also expected to be around 40- 60 knots during this same time period. A capping inversion is likely to be in place Tuesday afternoon/evening due to early morning convection, which should keep from any thunderstorms developing during that time period. However, convection is expected to develop upstream near MI/WI/IL area, which will then propagate southeast across northern Ohio during the Tuesday overnight hours. The greatest chance (albeit low chance) for severe weather will be with this overnight convection.

A more prominent upper level trough is expected to dive down from Canada and across the upper Midwest and Great Lakes region on Wednesday and Wednesday night. This will result in a strong cold front (extending from low pressure over Ontario) moving east across the area late Wednesday night, resulting in widespread rain showers.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. The cold front sweeping across the area on Wednesday night will result in gusty conditions on Thursday and quite the pattern change for the remainder of the long term forecast. Temperatures expected to be below normal Thursday through Friday night, with a chance for some scattered lake effect/enhanced snow/rain showers Thursday night. Uncertainty increases for the rest of the weekend as there is very little consistency with model guidance. In general though, expect near normal temperatures with a low chance of precipitation.

AVIATION /00Z Monday THROUGH Friday/. VFR expected for much, if not all, of the period through Monday afternoon. Only exception may be some early morning fog. Low confidence in this and more likely scenario would be for shallow fog in the low lying areas and sparing the terminals. Did include 2 to 3 hours of MVFR vsby for the potential. Winds will be light/variable.

OUTLOOK. Non-VFR possible near a warm front Monday night through Tuesday night as showers/thunderstorms spread across the region. Non- VFR will linger into Wednesday with the cold front before clearing. Non-VFR possible again Thursday with another cold front. Non-VFR ceilings may linger into Friday across northeast OH/nw PA.

MARINE. High pressure continues to build east across the Great Lakes through at least early tomorrow tonight. This will keep conditions on Lake Erie rather quiet through at least Monday night and much of Tuesday. Low pressure over the upper Midwest on Tuesday will move east across the Great Lakes region Tuesday night. A warm front will extend from this low and settle across Lake Erie on Tuesday night. This will result in varying wind directions until the low passes east of Lake Erie, which is when westerly winds of up to 15 knots develops, lasting through the day Wednesday. A more significant cold front associated with a deeper low moving across Ontario will move east across Lake Erie late Wednesday night. Westerly winds of 15 to 25 knots will develop Wednesday night behind this cold front, persisting through Thursday night and perhaps even into early Friday. This will likely warrant an extended Small Craft Advisory during this time period.

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.
