Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Cleveland OH 407 PM EST Sat Jan 18 2020

SYNOPSIS. Low pressure currently over Lake Huron will continue to move east toward New England tonight and on Sunday. High pressure from the northern Great Plains and upper Midwest will build southeast to the Ohio Valley Monday through Wednesday, lingering over the mid- Atlantic Thursday and Friday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/. Precipitation has finally transitioned to all rain across the entire forecast area as temperatures have increased to the mid 30s to low 40s. For this reason, all Winter Weather Advisories for mixed precipitation have been cancelled.

Low pressure currently over northern lower Michigan will continue to move east tonight and tomorrow, bringing a cold front east across the area this evening. This will usher in a much colder airmass to the region. Scattered snow showers expected to develop behind the cold front with very gusty westerly winds. Widespread gusts of 30 to 40 mph are likely with locally higher amounts expected along the lakeshore, which is where a Wind Advisory is currently in effect.

With the cold airmass comes the development of lake effect snow. West-southwest winds develop tonight with temperatures aloft taking a nose dive. With the upper level trough providing synoptic scale lift and quality moisture, we will have an environment favorable for lake effect. A single band of lake effect snow is expected to develop with westerly steering flow late tonight and by early Sunday morning. This band will intensify during the day Sunday as lake-induced instability increases and cloud depths increase to a maximum of 8500 feet by early Sunday afternoon. The heaviest snowfall will occur over Erie County, PA during this period. Between 18 and 00 UTC Sunday the steering flow begins to shift to out of the northwest as the upper level trough swings down across Lake Erie. This will push the lake effect band inland and transition the event into more of a multi-band situation with the secondary snowbelt potentially having some impacts by Sunday night. Blowing snow will also be likely where wind gusts persist, especially likely tonight and early Sunday. Lake effect snow slowly diminished Sunday night as environmental moisture content decreases and synoptic scale conditions become less favorable.

SHORT TERM /MONDAY THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/. A trough aloft exits our CWA to the south and east on Monday as a surface high pressure ridge builds from the Upper Midwest. Fair weather is expected across much of the region. However, a northerly low-level flow of cold air across Lake Erie will continue generating multiple bands of lake effect snow showers across northeast OH and northwest PA, especially in the primary and secondary snow belts. These lake effect snow showers will likely be light as a lowering subsidence inversion and relatively-dry airmass accompany the building ridge and limit lake-induced instability. Any snow accumulations should be less than one inch and afternoon highs should mainly reach the mid to upper 20's.

Monday night into Tuesday, high pressure aloft builds from the west as the accompanying surface high drifts from the Upper Midwest to central Ohio Valley and continues influencing our area. Fair weather will persist. However, a northerly flow of cold air across Lake Erie will continue directing multiple bands of lake effect snow across the primary and perhaps secondary snowbelt of northeast OH and northwest PA Monday night. These lake snow showers will likely end by late Tuesday morning as lake-induced CAPE continues to wane via the lowering subsidence inversion and a continued decrease in low- level moisture. Additional snow accumulations Monday night into Tuesday will probably be less than one inch. Morning lows mainly in the teens and afternoon high temperatures in the mid to upper 20's are expected on Tuesday.

High pressure aloft crests over our CWA Tuesday night into Wednesday as the surface high drifts toward the Mid-Atlantic states. This pattern will yield fair weather across our entire CWA. Low temperatures should reach the mid teens to lower 20's Tuesday night, while Wednesday afternoon's highs should primarily reach the mid to upper 30's as the surface high's clockwise, outward circulation begins to result in warm air advection.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. Odds favor fair weather Wednesday night through Thursday night as southwesterly flow aloft develops over our region and we become located along the western periphery of the departing high pressure ridge at the surface and aloft. Simultaneously, a deepening trough should begin overspreading the central United States from the west. As flow aloft undergoes isentropic lift, a few snow showers may overspread areas west of I-71 Thursday night. At this point, little or no snow accumulation is expected.

Low temperatures should primarily reach the 20's Wednesday night. Highs should reach the lower to mid 40's in many places Thursday afternoon. Thursday night should have low temperatures mainly in the upper 20's to lower 30's as warm air advection continues.

Periods of widespread rain and/or snow are possible over our region Friday through Saturday as a surface low potentially moves from the Central Great Plains to southern Lower MI and becomes vertically- stacked with a mid- to upper-level low following a similar path. In addition, this low should allow a warm front to sweep northeastward over our CWA on Saturday. High temperatures should reach the 40's on both Friday and Saturday, while Friday night lows should reach the lower to mid 30's. Thus, the best potential for wet snow or a rain/snow mix exists Friday morning and again Friday night into Saturday morning.

AVIATION /18Z Saturday THROUGH Thursday/. Mixed precipitation has ended across all TAF sites as rain overspreads the area with some isolated spots of snow. Wide variance in ceilings are expected but generally MVFR to IFR conditions are expected through this evening before transitioning to widespread MVFR tonight. Lake effect snow develops tonight, primarily impacting KERI.

Sustained southerly winds of around 20 knots will be gusting to 35 knots most of the day today. The cold front will move east across the area this evening forcing winds to veer to out of the west after 00 UTC. Winds remain elevated through the end of the TAF period.

OUTLOOK. Non-VFR possible with lake effect snow on Sunday through Tuesday.

MARINE. Southerly surface winds veer to southwesterly by early evening as a cold front sweeps east over Lake Erie and the parent low deepens as it tracks from northern Lake Michigan to northern Lake Huron. Simultaneously, these winds will likely strengthen from about 25 knots to near 35 knots as waves build to the 7 to 11 foot range, especially in the central and eastern basins.

The surface low will continue deepening later this evening through Sunday as it advances toward the Canadian Maritimes. Southwesterly to westerly gales of 35 to 40 knots, gusting up to 50 knots, are likely this evening through Sunday morning. Waves as large as 10 to 14 feet are expected in the central and eastern basins, while a shorter fetch results in smaller waves farther west. Critically-low water levels are likely in the western basin this evening into Sunday morning. By Sunday afternoon, winds should be below gale- force and continue to ease over Lake Erie as these winds veer from westerly to northwesterly. In addition, waves should lower gradually and be no higher than 6 feet by the end of the day. Thus, the Gale Warning will likely have to be replaced with a Small Craft Advisory to account for the gradual improvement in conditions. Freezing spray will be a concern tonight into Sunday as the airmass cools over Lake Erie. However, refrained from issuing a Freezing Spray Warning since extreme icing is not expected.

Small Craft Advisory conditions may linger Monday morning as northwesterly winds continue to ease. Quieter marine conditions are then expected as winds back gradually from northwesterly to southwesterly Monday afternoon through Wednesday. Southwesterly winds should become more southerly on Thursday as the lake remains relatively-quiet.
