Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Cleveland OH 401 AM EST Mon Dec 4 2023

A trough will remain across the region today before a surface ridge nudges into the area from the southwest tonight. A low pressure system will cross the region on Tuesday and extend a cold front through the area. High pressure will build into the region behind this front for Wednesday and Thursday.

A surface trough remains across the region this morning as an upper trough moves through the Ohio Valley. Cold advective, westerly flow with these synoptic features will allow for lake enhanced precipitation to remain favored across Northeast Ohio and Northwest Pennsylvania for much of today. Temperature profiles across the region remain fairly marginal for snow (-5 to -6 C at 850 mb) and have mostly rain for the precipitation type today with perhaps a wet snowflake or two mixing in for areas well away from the lake. Moisture remains trapped under an inversion at around 6 kft and overcast skies will maintain everywhere with the trough moving through the region.
Temperatures will not warm much, if at all, across the forecast area with clouds and light cold air advection and have highs around 40 degrees across the area - give or take a degree or two.

For tonight, the upper trough axis will move through the region and the surface trough will adjust east, allowing for a surface ridge to enter. Drier air behind the upper trough and backing flow with the surface ridge will allow for lake enhanced precipitation to diminish through the night. Granted, cooling conditions may allow for any precipitation to become more snow than rain in the interior snow belt. However, any accumulation would be negligible. Temperatures will fall to freezing.

For Tuesday, another wave of the upper level trough will target the region and support a weak low pressure across the area.
There will be enough synoptic lift with help of the upper trough and enough moisture advecting into the region to allow for generally widespread precipitation to enter by late Tuesday morning/early Tuesday afternoon. Have continued a mix of likely and categorical PoPs with the highest south and west as the core of the system will stay south of the area. Because of this, the forecast area will remain cold with supportive temperature profiles for snow as the initial precipitation type before trying to fully change over to rain with slightly warming temperatures. Overall, the near surface environment and ground and pavement temperatures are likely too poor for snow to accumulate. High temperatures on Tuesday will be in the mid to upper 30s.

A weakening low pressure system will dissolve into a surface trough as it exits east of the area Tuesday evening and overnight. A chilly air mass will arrive behind the trough, characterized by 850 mb temperatures falling between -6 to -8 degrees C. Although not particularly cold, lingering mid-level moisture will allow for scattered lake-effect snow showers to persist through Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning. Snow accumulations are expected to generally remain below an inch and should be confined to the higher terrain. Mid-level moisture will then gradually decrease through Wednesday morning and afternoon, with lake-effect activity becoming more isolated and lighter before dissipating by Wednesday evening.

By Wednesday night into Thursday, an upper trough will move east across the Eastern Great Lakes bringing a brief chance for snow showers across NE OH and NW PA. Otherwise, Thursday should be fairly quiet and dry as an upper-level ridge develops and moves east across the Central CONUS/Great Lakes.

Below-average temperatures are expected for Wednesday with highs in the 30s. Temperatures will rebound back to near to slightly above average on Thursday, in the mid-40s.

Upper-level ridging will remain in place for much of Friday as a deep upper-level trough begins to develop across the Central CONUS.
Signs of a stronger storm system are starting to become more apparent for the weekend as this deep upper trough continues towards the Eastern CONUS, strengthening and becoming negatively tilted. Still a lot of finer details to work out for this storm system on the horizon, although widespread rain will be likely at some point Saturday into Sunday.

Above-average temperatures are expected for the long term period with highs in the low to mid-50 on Friday and Saturday. Depending on the timing of the storm system and associated fronts, above-average temperatures may also persist into Sunday.

AVIATION /06Z Monday THROUGH Friday/
A surface trough remaining across the region with sufficient low level moisture will allow for MVFR ceilings to persist across the entire airspace through Tuesday morning. However, the nearest surface layer is fairly dry with clouds overhead and good mixing with westerly winds over 10 kts have all largely prevented widespread IFR and fog developing like previous days.
Some IFR is present over southern Lower Michigan and there could be an opportunity for some of this to advect into NW Ohio, but did not have enough confidence to put IFR ceilings into the TAF and have just some sct IFR clouds mentioned. Low level flow will become focused off Lake Erie through the period and lake effect precipitation with a mix of rain and then snow will impact some of the NE OH/NW PA terminals. However, the setup is rather marginal and any precipitation should be light and allow for conditions to just stay MVFR. Some wind gusts of 20 to 30 kt will be possible early with the trough in place but winds will subside as the trough weakens across the region.

Outlook...Non-VFR possible in periods of rain and/or snow Tuesday with lingering non-VFR in NE OH/NW PA into Wednesday.

Rough marine conditions remain across the central and eastern basins of Lake Erie this morning as westerly winds of 20 to 25 knots persist. However, improvement will begin to be felt by later this afternoon and evening as west to northwest winds decrease to less than 15 knots. Otherwise, looking at a fairly quiet marine forecast through much of the week. Winds will briefly shift towards the north and increase into the 15 to 20 knot range late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning behind a cold front. Low confidence on if a Small Craft will be needed. Winds will then shift offshore towards the southwest by Thursday, 15 to 20 knots, and persist through Friday.

MARINE...Small Craft Advisory until 4 PM EST this afternoon for LEZ146>149.
