Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Cleveland OH 923 AM EST Wed Dec 6 2023

A high pressure ridge will build east across the area today and tonight departing to the southeast by Thursday and remaining there through Friday. A deepening low pressure system lifts northeast across the Great Lakes region Saturday and Sunday, bringing a strong cold front across the region. High pressure builds south of the area early next week.

9:15 AM Update...
Light snow has entered parts of Northwest Ohio this morning earlier than expected, so opted to include a light PoP starting now and lasting through this afternoon.

Previous Discussion...
Some light lake effect snow showers continue across Northeast Ohio and Northwest Pennsylvania this morning. However, dry air entering the region is causing clouds to break up across Northwest Ohio and Lake Erie, and this has really allowed for any snow to be more isolated in nature this morning and have decreased PoPs. As a surface ridge enters the region today, flow will back and any lake effect snow will continue to diminish in coverage over Northeast Ohio and Northwest Pennsylvania. A little bit of moisture and energy aloft will move into Northwest Ohio late this afternoon and there is a non-zero chance for some rain or wet snow to pop up and have maintained a slight chance PoP. Otherwise, temperatures will remain cool with 30s across the board. Some sun will make it through the clouds but expect these clouds to fill back in ahead of the surface ridge.

For tonight into Thursday, a surface trough will move through the northeast Great Lakes region with a potent northwest flow jet halting the progress of a broader upper ridge. This combination will support some scattered snow chances in NW PA and extreme NE OH tonight into Thursday. Low level flow is southwest against the northwest flow upper jet and temperatures with this event are very marginal for much in the way of lake enhancement to get any noticeable accumulating snowfall totals.
This system will exit by mid-day on Thursday with clearing conditions through a large portion of the area. Temperatures tonight will be near freezing and temperatures on Thursday will warm considerably across the area with most in the 40s and maybe a stray 50 degree reading in NW Ohio.

Above-average temperatures are expected through the short term period as an upper-level ridge builds across the Eastern CONUS.
Highs will reach into the mid-50s on Friday, increasing further into the upper 50s to perhaps lower 60s on Saturday.

Initially, quiet weather will persist into Saturday morning under the large upper-level ridge. By Saturday afternoon and evening, precipitation aided by moist isentropic lift will begin to spread northeast into the region as a deep upper-level trough moves east across CONUS, strengthening and becoming negatively-tilted as it reaches the Eastern CONUS on Sunday. At the surface, a low pressure system will quickly strengthen as it moves northeastward from the ArkLaTex region on Saturday and into the Upper Great Lakes through Saturday night. Recent model trends have displaced this strengthening surface low further north than previous forecasts. The heaviest and most widespread precipitation is expected late Saturday night into Sunday morning as a new area of low pressure develops across the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic, coincident with the arrival of a cold front through the Lower Great Lakes.

Active weather will persist through the long term period, beginning on Sunday as a cold front moves east through the area, ushering in a much cooler air mass across the region. Depending on the timing of the cold air in conjunction with a deepening low pressure system across the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast, there could be a period of moderate rain transitioning to snow Sunday evening and overnight.
Winds may still be gusty behind the cold front Sunday night into Monday, although for the most part, wind gusts are trending downwards, especially with the further north trend of the first low pressure system.

Precipitation chances will quickly diminish on Monday behind the cold front with only limited lake-effect activity expected as mean boundary-layer flow wavers from west to southwest. Weak upper-level ridging may build across the Great Lakes by Monday night into Tuesday with mainly dry weather expected for Tuesday.

Above-average temperatures in the 50s are expected for early Sunday ahead of the cold front, although temperatures will be quickly dropping throughout the day behind the front. Temperatures will return back to average to slightly below average for Monday and Tuesday with highs struggling to reach the 40-degree mark.

AVIATION /12Z Wednesday THROUGH Sunday/
VFR remains the most dominant flight category across the region this morning, but some fleeting MVFR remains in portions of NE OH downwind of Lake Erie. A rather expansive gap has developed in the clouds and some locations of Northwest and North Central Ohio will be without a ceiling for a short time this morning.
Additional clouds will return to the region allowing for additional low VFR or MVFR conditions later today. Eventually, a ridge will build from the southwest and trends for all sites should be to VFR. A trough will enter from the north for tonight into Thursday and bring additional clouds and a chance of rain or snow to NW PA and have an early vicinity shower mention at KERI. Winds will start generally northwest and back to the west and southwest through the period. Winds will increase later in the TAF period with the approaching trough from the north.

Outlook...Widespread rain with non-VFR possible this Saturday through Sunday.

A fairly quiet marine period is in store through much of the period with no headlines anticipated until Sunday.

North to northwest winds of 10 to 15 knots this morning will shift towards the south to southwest later this evening and overnight, increasing to 15 to 25 knots by Thursday with the higher end of winds remaining mainly in the open waters. Offshore flow will persist through Saturday. By Sunday, a cold front will move east across Lake Erie, ushering in west winds of 20 to 25 knots. A Small Craft Advisory will likely be needed for this time period.
