area forecast discussion
national weather service cleveland oh
517 am est mon jan 7 2019

.synopsis...
low pressure will move northeast today from the central plains
and reach the central great lakes tonight. a warm front will
move east across the area today. a cold front will follow
tonight. another cold front will move through the region on
tuesday.

&&

.near term /through tonight/...
update...patchy light snow/sleet/rain/freezing rain noted across
north central and northeast oh the past hour or so. precip is
very light so far and is expected to remain so. road temps in
the area are in the mid 30s so currently there shouldn`t be any
significant impact at least initially. also temps should begin
to rise quickly enough this morning in the warm advection. have
updated the forecast to have chance pops reach further into
north central and northeast oh/nwrn pa through the morning. will
continue to monitor for the need for an advisory.

original...currently watching warm advection precip aloft on
radar across northwest ohio. this feature should shift east
across the region through the balance of the night reaching
northeast oh and nwrn pa by morning where chances are best
(although still low) to get a little light freezing
rain/drizzle. for now will have pops increase to a low chance
category by mid morning nwrn pa. slight chance otherwise. a more
significant chance for rain will come in the afternoon
beginning west ahead of the approaching cold front. will go with
categorical pops getting into the far west between 21z and 00z
this evening. will bring the categorical pops east across much
of the region through the evening. after midnight tonight,
models show drier air moving in from the west behind the cold
front. will drop pops in the west after midnight with pops
dropping to chance east. tuesday, should begin dry for the most
part but by afternoon, models bring another surface low east
across michigan to just north of lake erie. this low will drag a
second cold front across the area as well. expect rain showers
to develop across the area from late morning on with pops in the
likely category northeast oh and nwrn pa.

will continue with wind advisory headline as is. another shot at
wind advisory conditions will come tuesday evening in cold
advection behind the second cold front. will need to watch the
evolution of this event.

&&

.short term /tuesday through thursday night/...
the short term forecast period continues to look very active for the
forecast area, especially the snow belt of nw pa and ne ohio. an
arctic cold front will move through the forecast area on tuesday
night, bringing strong westerly winds to the area. for now, have
left gusty winds in the forecast but there is an outside chance of
needing a wind advisory if some of the stronger low level winds can
make it down to the surface. there will be a round of precipitation
with this frontal feature. precipitation ahead of this cold front
will start as rain with 850 mb temperatures and surface
temperatures above freezing but the p-type will quickly change over
to snow as 850 mb temperatures plunge to -10 to -14c and surface
temperatures crash 20 degrees.

the first lake effect snow episode of 2019 is looking more and more
likely for the snow belt region from wednesday morning through
thursday evening. the setup continues to feature arctic air, along
with some residual synoptic moisture and a favorable fetch over a
completely ice-free lake erie, that allow for lake effect snow to
develop behind the cold front on wednesday into thursday. the deeper
lift for lake effect seems to be immediately behind the front early
wednesday morning with inversion heights around 8000 ft. the
inversion falls a bit late wednesday morning and some shear is
introduced to the region as winds shift from the west to the
northwest. however, things appear to re-establish themselves on
wednesday evening with northwest flow and saturation into the dgz
and will continue into thursday until the arctic high moves in and
shuts things down. think that west flow to start will favor areas of
inland erie county, pa for wednesday morning, but then the wind
shift to the northwest will favor inland erie/northern crawford pa,
west to the higher terrain east of cleveland. the northwest flow
will also likely produce some sort of lake huron connection, which
will also greatly influence final snow totals. with all of this in
mind, will go with a forecast of 6 to 8 inches total in inland erie,
4 to 6 inches for the rest of nw pa, and then 2 to 4 inches for the
ne ohio snow belt; this is for the 42 hour period from early
wednesday morning to thursday evening. fine tuning will certainly
down the road, but definitely something to watch in the short
term.

&&

.long term /friday through sunday/...
arctic high pressure over the eastern great lakes will continue east
on friday as a low pressure system moves in from the west for the
weekend. high pressure overhead on friday will eliminate lake effect
as winds will shift around to the northeast and eventually to the
south. there still is plenty of dissonance in the forecast with the
incoming low pressure system for the weekend as the gfs has a much
more pronounced clipper system approaching the area, while the ecmwf
has a fading clipper system that quickly gets absorbed into a
southern system. at this point, do believe that there will be a
chance for some snow at some point this weekend but tough to tell
when that might be so have just generic low chance pops for now in
timing with the gfs, which has actually been the more consistent
model over the past 48 hours... temperatures through the period
continue to look seasonable with highs in the 30s and lows in the
20s.

&&

.aviation /06z monday through friday/...
mainly vfr overnight as high pressure moves east. keri does have
an mvfr cigs but expect that to lift over the next couple hours.
monday moisture continues to deepen in isentropic lift ahead of
a warm front. the warm front will be followed by a cold front
monday evening. expect conditions to drop to mvfr as the cold
front sweeps east across the area. also ahead of the cold front
south to southeast flow will increase to around 20 to 25 knots
with gusts into the 30s. peak gusts around 40 knots are likely
keri vicinity.

outlook...non-vfr monday night. occasional non-vfr tuesday
through thursday especially across northeast oh/nw pa.

&&

.marine...
low pressure over the upper mississippi river valley this morning
will move east into the northern great lakes today. a warm front
extends from this low into the ohio valley and will lift north
today, crossing the lake this afternoon. winds will shift around to
the southeast and increase with the warm frontal passage. given
upstream observations over lake michigan and present timing of the
front, have bumped up the start time of the small craft advisory for
cleveland and west to 10 am this morning and aligned the zones east
of cleveland with nws buffalo to start at 1 pm this afternoon. the
surface low will continue east into canada and force a cold front
across the area tonight and wind will shift around to the southwest
and diminish by sunrise on tuesday.

there will be a brief reprieve in hazardous conditions on the lake
before an arctic cold front will cross lake erie on tuesday night.
this front will pack a punch with strong westerly winds 25 to 30
knots, which will veer around to the northwest with the frontal
passage, allowing for building waves in the nearshore areas. arctic
high pressure will slowly ebb in from the west on wednesday and
thursday but winds will remain strong out of the northwest through
the middle of the week. in short, could see small craft advisory
worth conditions through much of the week. high pressure finally
makes it to the lake on thursday night into friday and flow will
become light and variable for a period before the next disturbance
approaches the great lakes region for the weekend.

day 1 convective outlook
nws storm prediction center norman ok
1104 pm cst sun jan 06 2019

valid 071200z - 081200z

...no thunderstorm areas forecast...

...summary...
the risk for thunderstorms appears negligible across the u.s. today
through tonight.

...synopsis...
broadening large-scale mid/upper troughing, which has generally
emerged from the mid-latitude pacific, and is comprised of a number
of smaller-scale perturbations, is forecast to continue progressing
across and east of the rockies during this period. this is being
preceded by a substantive influx of mid/high-level moisture, within
a narrow plume emanating from the subtropical eastern pacific.
however, associated precipitation across the lower missouri valley
into the upper midwest is falling through relatively dry/potentially
cool mid/lower levels. this is impeding low-level warming and
potential destabilization, and will continue to do so while
spreading across parts of the great lakes and ohio valley, into the
northeast, today through tonight. at the same time, boundary layer
modification over the western/northern gulf of mexico remains
modest, and it appears unlikely that inland moistening, on
pre-frontal southerly low-level return flow, will contribute to
sufficient destabilization to support an appreciable risk for
thunderstorms.

Even the president’s most stalwart supporters understand that this administration has been a failure, wrapped in a joke, written by a con man.

good #quote but this part smacks of stupidity:

He lost the popular vote in 2016 by 3 million votes.

maybe the editors need a remedial course on presidential politics. presidential campaigns are engineered to win the electoral vote and not the overall popular vote. the popular vote only matters in a handful of battleground states, and even then, it's not statewide in those states.

for ohio, the popular vote only matters in a handful of large urban areas, which nearly always go to the democrat candidate, but that's expected. the less populated counties nearly all go for the republican candidate. the key is for the republican candidate to lose by as small a margin as possible in the urban counties.

it's still best for a republican candidate to campaign multiple times in lucas county (toledo) than it is in van wert county. more bang for the buck by visiting the urban counties.

if the presidential election was determined by the popular vote, then ohio becomes nearly insignificant. candidates my make an occasional stop in northeast ohio or columbus, but the number of visits to ohio would be greatly reduced. candidates would visit the top 20 or so largest metro areas.

Do you know who the real “Never Trumpers” are? They are the majority of American voters. If the conservative movement cannot reckon with this fact, then it is spent as an intellectual force.

I don't understand how grandmothers spend $5 on acrylic yarn when they could spend $10 to make a (better) wool scarf that they'll spend 20 hours knitting. (e.g. the wool scarf will protect you in a fire, the acrylic scarf will melt, burn you, and produce toxic fumes.)

I was devastated to hear about the layoffs at @dallasnews today. Please join me in supporting our local newspaper and the incredible journalists who are essential parts of our democracy.

essential parts of our democracy???

A free, independent press is a vital part of a healthy democracy. Support local journalism.

about the only functioning business model left that works for local newspapers is being bought by a billionaire or least a big millionaire.

Makes me sick. Laugh & make jokes at media's expense all you want, BC some is warranted, but these are people with homes, lives & responsibilities. Zero is good about this.

it's not unique to the newspaper industry. many companies across many industries let people go every year, and it sucks.

Got a lot of feedback writing last week about Trump and newspapers that papers are “getting rich” off DJT. Quite the opposite. 2 papers, NYT + WP (and cable TV) make more $$$ b/c of 45. The rest are out here struggling

trump bump does not filter down to local newspapers, probably because people who read local newspapers want to read about local news and happenings.
