Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Cleveland OH 807 PM EDT Sun Apr 14 2024

A cold front will move across the region late this afternoon into the evening. In the wake of the front high pressure controls the region through Tuesday morning. The next warm front approaches from the Mid Ohio Valley on Tuesday.

Have opted to hold onto the Severe Thunderstorm Watch with the cold front still located north of the watch area. In the last half hour some back building has been noted westward into Mahoning County with a reservoir of 1000 J/kg of ML CAPE that has yet to be utilized. This has been a tricky situation in terms of if additional redevelopment will occur and if it will be strong to severe. Several of the high resolution models do suggest at least scattered showers will develop along the front back to the west, generally along route 30 then drifting south this evening. Satellite imagery shows a fairly thick (albeit flat)
cu field where dewpoints are in the lower 50s. It does seem plausible that some showers will fill in to the west and sheer does increase through the evening. Main limiting factor for stronger convection is a lack of deep moisture as water vapor is quite dry with some warm air remaining in the mid-levels.
Will need to allow this situation to evolve past sunset before we feel comfortable letting go of the severe thunderstorm watch.

Previous discussion...The better lift associated with this storm system is currently(1930Z) moving across Lake Erie. PBZ sounding is indicating rather dry low levels as the lift moves in to assist in eroding the cap that has been over the region through the day. We are seeing a little bit of low level moisture increase ahead of the front and just ahead of this lift. This should all combine to generate convection over the next hour or so with the expectation of upscale growth. Still leaning toward an isolated to scattered coverage as the cold front sags southward across the lake.

The drier low levels lead us to a greater wind threat with any of the stronger updrafts that develop. While there is a marginal or greater risk of severe thunderstorms near and south of a Wattsburg to Findlay line it appears that the greatest threat is across our southeastern CWA This area is mainly near and east of I-77. There is potential for a couple supercells so large hail may also accompany the damaging wind gust potential.
It looks like the main time period for these thunderstorms to occur will be between 4 PM and 10 PM.

In the wake of the cold front high pressure will increase its influence on the region. This ridge then gradually drifts eastward through the day. Lows tonight dip into the 40's. Highs Monday range from the upper 50's across inland NW PA to around 70 across NW OH.

The quiet weather continues into MOnday night but the next warm front will be approaching from the middle Mississippi Valley. So there may be an increase in high level cloud cover late in the night. Lows range from the upper 30's across inland NW PA to the mid 40's.

An upper trough will move through the central CONUS on Tuesday and will support a low pressure system that will move through the Great Lakes on Wednesday. For Tuesday, a warm front will extend ahead of the system and lift toward the lake and rain chances will increase as the feature enters the forecast area. A ridge across the region will likely limit both the coverage and intensity of rain on Tuesday, although some mid-level vorticity advection will move through the area to help break down the ridge a bit. The main show appears to be Wednesday as the front will lift north across the lake and the main forcing mechanisms of the surface low and upper trough will enter the region to allow for widespread rain chances. The system will be fairly dynamic with good jet energy and moisture will advect into the region. There will some instability to allow for some rumbles but as far as widespread storm chances, it's a bit tricky to figure this far out, as there could be issues with lots of rain in the region to wipe out a large threat, especially this far north. However, will continue to highlight high PoPs and Wednesday will need to be monitored as the details become more clear.

The long term forecast trend will be largely drier and cooler through the weekend. There will be some smaller chances for rain through the period, but greatly diminished after the more active mid week system. The long term forecast will mostly be driven by an upper trough that will dig into the upper Midwest on Thursday, moving east through Canada through Friday and Saturday. Energy behind this trough will then swing through the Great Lakes region for the weekend and bring cooler temperatures across the area, along with high pressure that should drive a dry period to transition into next week. Rain chances for the first half of the period will be driven by a front remaining across the Ohio Valley region from the midweek system. Any rain chances seem marginal as the main upper level support seems to be drifting off to the northeast. The region will be on the cold side of the front though and temperatures will decrease through the period starting with 60s on Thursday down to barely lower 50s on Sunday. Nighttime lows will be trending cooler for the weekend into next week and frost/freeze potential does exist.

AVIATION /00Z Monday THROUGH Friday/
Scattered thunderstorms continue from south of Youngstown east into Pennsylvania at 00Z. A cold front is still located along a line from near Cleveland east into Pennsylvania and will settle south this evening. It is unclear at this time if this will be sufficient to kick off additional thunderstorms ahead of the front where instability remains or if deep layer dry air will limit thunderstorms with just some light shower activity ahead of the front. Opted to include a vicinity shower in the taf at MFD/CAK for a few hours this evening and may need to updated to add a thunderstorm but coverage and confidence are too low at this time to keep a tempo for thunderstorms. Outside of thunderstorms, VFR conditions are expected to persist through the TAF period. A deck of clouds near 7K feet accompanies the front but will scatter out overnight. Mostly sunny skies are expected on Monday.

Westerly winds will decrease to 10 knots or less and veer to the north/northeast behind the front overnight. Winds back to north/northwesterly on Monday.

Outlook...Non-VFR expected with periodic rain showers and thunderstorms Tuesday through Thursday.

Strong offshore flow will continue over the next couple of hours to allow for hazardous weather conditions for small craft on Lake Erie and will maintain the headline through this evening. A front will then cross the lake and allow for northerly flow to take over across the lake and diminish, allowing for any headline to end. High pressure will be over the lake on Monday and allow for lighter flow to develop. A warm front will lift to the lake on Tuesday and promote easterly flow across the basin. The front will lift north of the lake for Wednesday as a low pressure system moves through the Great Lakes region and there will be concern for a marine headline with that system, as robust southeast flow will be expected on Wednesday and a window of enhanced southwest flow will be expected on Wednesday night into Thursday behind the system.
