Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Cleveland OH 943 PM EST Wed Nov 29 2023

Mild southwest flow develops on Thursday ahead of an approaching area of low pressure and cold front. These features impact the region Friday and Saturday.

915 pm update...
With this late evening update, we made some minor adjustments to the hourly cloud cover forecast now through 18z tomorrow. The two areas that needed a fresh update was the lake effect cloud cover that has been stubborn to move out of NWPA this evening.
The latest IR GOES-16 imagery this evening also has shown some clouds have sneaked back over portions of Ashtabula County this evening coming off Lake Erie. But again the overall trend overnight will be clearing from west to east for those areas closer to NWPA. We also adjusted cloud cover forecast Thursday morning into the midday hours. A closer look to the hourly data that was previously in the the forecast, it seemed a little too aggressive and high on the percentage of cloud cover through 18z with the incoming cloud cover for tomorrow. We will see an increase of high level cirrus type clouds moving in on Thursday but also have sunshine or filtered sun for most of the day.

630 pm update...
The near term forecast did not need any adjustments with this mid evening intermediate update. All the clouds have cleared out of northern Ohio as of early this evening. The last of the lake effect clouds are still over NWPA this evening and will continue to erode away from west to east overnight. The weather is quiet tonight thanks to a big high pressure system over the eastern CONUS.

Previous discussion...
All but the eastern CWA is cloud free as of 330 pm. However we should see the clouds continue to move eastward through the evening with all locations becoming clear to partly cloudy. We then will be watching a weakening cold front moving across the central Great Lakes on Thursday. This will assist with increasing southerly flow ahead of it. It will remain dry with temperatures slightly below seasonal levels tonight. Lows should dip to the 20's at most locations. However some lower teens likely where snow remains. Warmer on Thursday with passing cloud cover. Highs should be in the mid to upper 40's, except where snowpack remains.

Southerly winds continue to improve the low level moisture through Thursday night. The stalled frontal boundary over the region becomes the path for low pressure to follow as we move into Friday. Increasing isentropic lift will cause an increase in cloud cover with a few showers spreading southwest to northeast through sunrise Friday morning. Low temperatures likely occur Thursday evening then remain steady or slowly warm through sunrise.

A stationary front will be situated just north of the forecast area in southeast Michigan and across Lake Erie. A shortwave trough and associated surface low lifts northeast out of the lower Mississippi Valley to the Ohio Valley this weekend. Strong isentropic lift northeast of the low along with low-level convergence/frontogenesis along the stationary front will lead to areawide rain Friday morning through the afternoon hours. Showers should become a bit more scattered out Friday evening through early Friday night before becoming a bit more focused and increasing in coverage near the low pressure center late Friday night into early Saturday morning.
Precipitation chances should gradually diminish through Saturday night as weak high pressure builds in. Temperatures will be near normal on Friday to slightly above normal on Saturday.

Several upper-level troughs traverse the area through the long term, with low PoPs in nearly every period. This is because there's timing differences between model guidance and in general, precipitation is expected to be light and scattered. The forecast will become more focused with precipitation chances as we get closer to next week. Sunday should be warm with temperatures slightly above normal, with temperatures gradually trending downward through the week to below normal by Wednesday. The cooler temperatures midweek (i.e. Tuesday night and Wednesday) could be enough to support some snow but nothing too meaningful expected at this time.

AVIATION /00Z Thursday THROUGH Monday/
VFR will prevail for all of northern Ohio and northwest Pennsylvania tonight and tomorrow. The last of the lake effect clouds will clear out of the skies of NWPA through later this evening. VFR ceilings around 5000 feet through 06z overnight is expected around ERI. Mostly clear to fair weather skies for all areas tonight through tomorrow afternoon.

The winds tonight will continue from the south-southwest 6 to 11 knots. Winds are expected to increase again by mid to late Thursday morning from the south-southwest 12-18 knots with gusts up to 25 knots during the midday and afternoon hours.
gradually coming down to 5 to 10 knots tonight.

Outlook...Non-VFR with periods of rain expected Thursday night through Friday night. Scattered rain showers are possible again Sunday.

The small craft advisory west of The Islands was allowed to expire at 4 PM today. The rest of the small craft advisory will continue through 1 AM Friday. Southwest winds of 20 to 25 knots this afternoon decrease to around 15 knots tonight before increasing back to 20 to 25 knots during the day Thursday. Winds west of The Islands will get close to small craft advisory conditions tomorrow, so that will have to be monitored.

A cold front settles over Lake Erie Thursday night into Friday as a stationary front, remaining there through Saturday morning. Winds be light (<10 knots) and variable as low pressure comes up from the southwest and moves along this front across Lake Erie on Saturday.
High pressure briefly builds in behind the low on Saturday night.

MARINE...Small Craft Advisory until 1 AM EST Friday for LEZ144>149.
