Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Cleveland OH 202 AM EDT Sun Apr 14 2024

SYNOPSIS
A high pressure ridge will build over the region early this evening and shift to the mid Atlantic coast by Sunday morning. Meanwhile low pressure will track southeast across the northern Great Lakes to New York by Sunday evening. A trailing cold front will drop south through the region Sunday night and high pressure will build into the region on Monday.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT/

2:02 AM EDT Update...
Forecast remains valid per latest trends in obs and model guidance. No changes appeared necessary.

Previous Discussion...
Fair weather is expected for much of tonight as a ridge of high pressure moves overhead and to the mid Atlantic coast by morning. A weak/diffuse warm front will lift northeast late tonight and early Sunday morning and may produce a few showers and thunderstorms, mainly over Lake Erie and NW PA, via moist isentropic ascent and release of weak/elevated CAPE along the upper-reaches of the front. Much warmer air will advect into the region in the wake of the warm front. Instability will increase in the afternoon with CAPE reaching 1000-1500 J/KG. Deeper wind shear will increase to near 40 knots. As a cold front approaches the region in the mid afternoon, scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop mainly east of I-71. The ample wind shear will help organize and sustain storms. There is mainly a marginal threat of severe weather (hail and damaging wind) as the convection develops and intensify in the CWA before moving to the east.

The front will drop south through the area Sunday night and the chance of showers and storms will end by midnight.

High temperatures will range from near 65 at the nw PA shoreline to near 80 at FDY. Low temperatures tonight and Sunday night will mainly be in the 40s, except slightly cooler in nw PA this evening.

SHORT TERM /MONDAY THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT/
An upper ridge building into the Great Lakes region on Monday will allow for surface high pressure to remain strong across the area and have a dry forecast for Monday and Monday night.
Temperatures on Monday will be slightly cooler than Sunday behind a cold front with more noticeably cooler temperatures in NE OH and NW PA, where the front will be stronger and precipitation on Sunday will help temperatures tumble. For Tuesday, the former cold front from Sunday will lift north to the lake as a warm front. There could be some rain showers with this front and perhaps some thunder, depending on how much instability returns to the region. THe main upper trough and low will begin to enter late in the period and have PoPs increasing appropriately.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/
The most active system of the week will be largely into the forecast area on Wednesday as an upper trough will support a low pressure system into the Great Lakes region. A high PoP for showers and thunderstorms is reflected in the forecast for Wednesday with the system in the region. There could be some stronger convection with good jet energy across the region. The question will once again be instability, especially with the system timing across the area. The system will trek east Wednesday night into Thursday and have decreasing PoPs back to chance levels as the system departs. The next upper trough digs into the upper Midwest for Friday into Saturday and will bring another system to the region with some marginal rain chances at this time. The more notable feature with this system will be the return of cooler temperatures, perhaps cooler than normal for the weekend into next week. There will be some frost/freeze potential depending on how the set up evolves.

AVIATION /06Z Sunday THROUGH Thursday/
NW'erly flow aloft and embedded disturbances affect our region through 06Z/Mon. At the surface, a ridge exits generally E'ward before a cold front sweeps generally S'ward through our area between ~22Z/Sun and ~04Z/Mon. Behind the front, a ridge builds from the north-central United States and vicinity. Our regional surface winds trend S'erly to W'erly around 10 to 20 knots ahead of the front. Gusts up to 20 to 35 knots are expected, especially between ~14Z and ~23Z/Sun. Note: LLWS is expected over northern OH prior to 14Z/Sun as a WSW'erly jet streak of about 50 knots at/near 925 mb affects the area. Behind the front, NW'erly surface winds around 10 to 15 knots are expected for several hours before becoming variable in direction and easing to around 5 knots as a relaxing MSLP gradient accompanies the post-front ridge.

Primarily fair weather and VFR are expected during the TAF period. However, ascent ahead of a subtle disturbance aloft may trigger isolated showers/thunderstorms over/near eastern Lake Erie and NW PA between ~10Z and ~14Z/Sun. Additional isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected along and just ahead of the cold front, especially east of roughly I-71.
These storms may produce brief/erratic surface gusts up to 55 knots and damaging hail. The cold front-related showers/storms should last no more than several hours at any impacted TAF site.
Brief MVFR/IFR ceilings and visibility are possible with showers/storms.

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

MARINE
A weak low will pass north of the lake on Sunday and extend a cold front across the basin. This feature will generate some showers and storms and winds will increase from the southwest ahead of the front. Issued a Small Craft Advisory from Cleveland to Erie PA where winds will increase to 20-25 knots. Winds will be near Small Craft levels west of Cleveland and it may need to be expanded. With the frontal passage, the winds will veer to the north and decrease. High pressure will be across the region on Monday and allow for light flow, eventually shifting to southerly. 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.

CLE WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
OH...None.
PA...None.
NY...None.
MARINE...Small Craft Advisory from 8 AM this morning to 8 PM EDT this evening for LEZ146>149.
