- Dry and cool this weekend with frost possible Sunday morning.

Issued at 1136 AM EDT Fri Apr 19 2024

Omega blocking pattern present over western Canada which will be interesting to see what kind of temporal issues are encountered with the latest modeling data. Typically the models become more progressive with blocks and so the actual atmospheric evolution may be hours to days pushed back. Having said that the eastern trough of this omega block will sit over the Great Lake region bringing colder and drier conditions. Highs Saturday will struggle to get out of the 40s. We then have our main concern this weekend which will be Sunday mornings low temperatures and potential morning frost. With many plants having emerged or in the process of emerging will be susceptible to frost damage.

Clouds will be in focus on Sunday morning as if lingering low to mid level clouds are still in place that would be enough to keep low temperatures up a degree or two. The better chance for cloud cover will be the southern half of the CWA, which means the better chance for frost will be the northern half of the area and areas away from Lake Michigan. So northwest OH, northeast IN, and southeast MI will have the higher chances for frost.
Lows on Sunday will range from 30 to 35 degrees. We will continue to monitor this situation in subsequent shifts for any potential advisory issuance.

Dry weather continues at least through Monday. As mentioned earlier the blocky pattern may cause forecast headaches as earlier runs had a trough dropping into the region late Monday into Tuesday but looks to be pushed back into later in the day on Tuesday. This trough would present the next chance of precipitation and another shot at cooler air with highs in the 50s on Wednesday and lows back into the 30s by Thursday morning. May need to watch for another potential frost event.
Ridging then returns on Thursday and temperatures will gradually warm once again with highs back into the low 60s.

Issued at 1228 PM EDT Fri Apr 19 2024

Dry, cool and somewhat breezy conditions will persist in wnw through the TAF cycle.

MARINE...Small Craft Advisory until 4 PM EDT Saturday for LMZ043-046.
