Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Cleveland OH 123 PM EST Mon Jan 25 2021

SYNOPSIS. Low pressure will move northeast from Oklahoma to northwest Pennsylvania by Tuesday afternoon. The low will move east of the area Tuesday night as a ridge of high pressure builds southeast through the central Great Lakes Region by the end of the week.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TUESDAY/. Main changes to the previous forecast were to move the advisory timing up from 6Z tonight to 23Z this evening for areas west of I-71 to match up with the southern half of the area.

Thinking is that much of the area will see at least a hundredth of ice accumulation from freezing rain with higher amounts up to a tenth of an inch across NW OH and NW PA. Perhaps some locally higher amounts in excess of a tenth of an inch of ice are possible in extreme NW OH (Lucas County). This will be one area to watch closely as elevated northeast flow cold air advection could cause temperatures to remain at 32 or below for an extended period of time.

The transition from snow to freezing rain should be a sharp gradient this evening and overnight as a mid-level dry slot punches in from the southwest across the area, resulting in a quick-loss of cloud ice. This means that at some point tonight, we should be dealing with either freezing rain or plain rain, dependent upon surface temperatures. For this reason, lowered snow totals to generally one inch or less across the area.

Expecting the heaviest band of freezing rain to pivot north across the area overnight. In the wake of this band, warm-air advection will spread north, with mainly rain, and perhaps some drizzle, expected across much of the area by Tuesday morning and afternoon.

As the low pressure system continues northeast of the area Tuesday, wrap-around mid-level moisture will re-enter across NW OH, resulting in an increase of cloud ice. Cold temperatures aloft will support a transition to light snow showers Tuesday afternoon, following a brief period of rain/snow mix. Any remaining snow showers should end across NW PA by early Wednesday morning.

SHORT TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/. Low pressure is exiting to the east Tuesday night with a reinforcing surge of colder flowing across the lake. Expect to see scattered snow showers along/ahead of this boundary Tuesday evening with better chances of snow occurring over NW PA. In the wake of this boundary some weak lake effect snow showers should persist across NW PA through the day on Wednesday. Snow amounts Tuesday night into Wednesday may total 1 to 2 inches. Lows Tuesday night are expected to be in the 20's. Highs on Wednesday withing a couple degrees of 30.

Current thinking is that any lake effect showers will be very light Wednesday night as the next storm system, originating near the Gulf Coast, lobs some moisture towards the region as an upper level trough passes overhead. This may end up producing some light snow across the southern CWA. We then will monitor a clipper type storm system that will track southeastward across Ontario into Upstate NY Thursday into Thursday night. We keep a cool northerly flow across the nearly ice free lake as this upper level low passes. There should be some lake enhanced snow that attempts to set up with its assistance. The amount of moisture looks like it will be limited by Thursday but still think we should see snow showers from just east of Cleveland transition eastward into NW PA by Thursday afternoon. In the wake of the upper low colder air will spill across the region Thursday night. At some point there should be an increase of lake effect snow showers. However once again we should struggle to get deep enough moisture to generate any significant snow amounts. Lows Wednesday night and Thursday night will be in the teens to around 20. Highs Thursday in the 20's.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. High pressure will slowly increase its influence on the region Friday into Friday night. Still will be enough cold air flowing across Lake Erie to generate some lake effect snow showers across NE OH/NW PA into Friday evening. Saturday looks to be dry across the entire region but high pressure is shifting to the east allowing the next storm system to approach. This low originates over the Central Plains and tracks toward the Central Great Lakes SAturday night into Sunday. Moisture ahead of the low arrives Saturday night. Current thinking is that we stay all snow until Sunday when we transition over to rain for much of the region. Temperature profiles Saturday night into early Sunday may end up providing us a wintry mix for a few hours. Models may be a little bit fast bringing this storm system eastward. Something for us to monitor through the week.

Warmer each day of the long term. Highs in the 20's on Friday then ranging from the mid 20's across NW PA to the mid 30's across NW OH on Saturday. By Sunday highs should be in the mid 30's to around 40.

Lows Friday night will be rather cold with single digits possible across NW PA, teens elsewhere. Lows teens to upper 20's Saturday night. Lows mid 20's to around 30 Sunday night.

AVIATION /18Z Monday THROUGH Saturday/. Mixed-bag of MVFR and VFR across the TAF sites this afternoon, associated with low ceilings and low vsbys. Expecting all TAF sites to fall to MVFR by this evening, then eventually to IFR overnight through the end of the TAF period.

Main focus of the TAF period will be periods of freezing rain tonight through early tomorrow morning. Precipitation should begin as snow this evening/tonight, before quickly switching over to freezing rain, then rain by tomorrow morning/afternoon. Tried to time out the period of most- impactful freezing rain potential at the TAF sites. The most concerning TAF site for freezing rain impact appears to be at TOL, where freezing rain could persist tonight through tomorrow morning. Mist/patchy fog is also possible tomorrow afternoon, which could result in widespread IFR conditions.

Winds are out of the east, around 10 knots, this afternoon. Expecting predominately east to northeast flow through the TAF period, increasing to 10 to 15 knots tonight and tomorrow morning. Some higher gusts of 20 to 25 knots are possible at TOL/FDY.

Outlook . Non-VFR possible through Tuesday. Non-VFR may continue Tuesday night through Wednesday. Non-VFR possible in NE OH/NW PA in lake effect snow Thursday through Friday.

MARINE. Lake will have light winds on it through the morning. However as low pressure moves up the Ohio River Valley it will help to tighten the pressure gradient. Expect easterly winds to increase to around 20 knots by this evening then remain elevated as low pressure tracks just south of the lake on Tuesday. Winds relax as they shift around to the north and northwest Tuesday afternoon. So a small craft advisory will be in effect 00Z Tue through 18Z Tue. We then keep north to northwest winds going on the lake into at least Friday. Winds may be just strong enough with a longer fetch building waves to 3 to 4 feet Wednesday night into Friday morning from the central lakeshore to near Presque Isle. So a small craft advisory may be needed.
