area forecast discussion
national weather service cleveland oh
912 am est fri jan 11 2019

.synopsis...
canadian high pressure will continue to build over the area
today. this will break down as an intensifying area of low
pressure over the mississippi valley tracks eastward over the
weekend into the mid-atlantic region. surface high pressure
over the central plains will follow early next week.

&&

.near term /through saturday/...
update...no big changes to the grids although wording has
evolved to show the trend in the grids of becoming partly
sunny this afternoon as holes get poked in the low level
stratus.

original...lake effect flurries are coming to an end this
morning as the center of the arctic surface high pressure slips
southeastward over the northern great lakes region. drier air
and lighter winds are cutting off the snow machine for now.
winds will become light and variable later today but it looks
like we will stay mostly cloudy for much of the area. there will
be some breaks in the clouds from time to time.

a light easterly flow will return tonight as well as increase in
high level cloudiness because of our next storm system
developing in the central u.s. we will be cold tonight with
lows in the teens and lower 20s but will remain dry. we will be
tracking a shield of light snow developing over the ohio river
valley and advancing across ohio during the day on saturday into
saturday night. light snow will become likely for the southern
two thirds of the area saturday afternoon into saturday evening.
the highest snowfall is expected the further south into
portions or central and southern ohio with this event. lighter
amounts further north. we will keep an eye on the track. any
shift in the track of the storm system will wobble the snow
amounts north or southward.

&&

.short term /saturday night through monday night/...
elongated vort max over the ohio valley will be shunted south on
saturday night as an upper trough slides across the eastern great
lakes into new england. snow will linger into the evening across
mainly central and southern portions of the area before quickly
drying from north to south as low level flow shifts around to the
northeast. lows on saturday night will be above normal given the
precipitation and clouds.

clouds will tend to clear on sunday with high pressure building
south over the area by sunday night. once clear, good radiational
cooling conditions will develop with most areas dropping into the
teens. seasonal values expected on monday.

&&

.long term /tuesday through thursday/...
the forecast area will be under the influence of a generally dry
northwest flow through the extended periods. surface low pressure
will pass north of the lakes on tuesday with a back door cold front
settling south into the area on wednesday. disagreement remains
between the models with respect to the degree of cooling with the
00z/11 ecmwf keeping the coldest air north of lake erie while the
gfs is at least 6c cooler at 850mb by 12z thursday. an early day
high may occur on wednesday with temperatures trending cooler into
thursday. there will be a chance of snow showers, mainly in the
snowbelt but any accumulation would be light as we are expected to
dry out quickly. will take a blended approach to temperatures until
confidence increases on either solution.

&&

.aviation /12z friday through tuesday/...
mvfr ceilings to gradually becoming vfr later today. there will be
slow clearing from southwest to northeast of the mvfr cloud
deck with everyone likely seeing vfr conditions by late
afternoon and evening. winds will be light northwest to westerly
5 knots becoming light and variable below 5 knots later this
morning through the evening. winds will be light easterly 5
knots overnight. high and mid level cloudiness will increase
tonight. there are no significant aviation impacts expected
during the next 24 hours other than mvfr ceilings this morning.

outlook...non-vfr possible saturday into sunday in snow showers.

&&

.marine...
high pressure overhead will maintain light winds today. winds shift
around to the east on saturday ahead of weak low pressure moving
through the tennessee valley. winds back around to northeast
saturday night into sunday morning and increase to near 20 knots.
small craft advisory conditions are likely on the central basin of
lake erie. the small craft will be short lived on sunday with high
pressure building in sunday night into monday. southwest winds will
be on the increase late tuesday into wednesday ahead of the next
cold front.

&&

oh...none.
pa...none.
marine...none.

32 years ago today, the Broncos defeated the Browns in Cleveland for the AFC Championship. Denver tied the game near the end of regulation with The Drive. The Broncos won the game in overtime with a field goal that some still think was no good, since the ball went over the upright, but the camera angles were lacking at that time. We only see the shot from behind the goal post, and it's unclear when the ball passed the upright.

A United States sportswear company has stopped using a Chinese supplier following concerns it was using forced labour in camps in northwestern China.

https://wptavern.com/wordpress-5-1-to-replace-blogging-references-with-publishing

Excerpts from this incredible project. [eyeroll]

WordPress 5.1 will replace the “Happy blogging” language in wp-config-sample.php with “Happy Publishing.”

“As of this commit, WordPress is no longer a simple blogging platform,” Gary Pendergast wrote in the commit message. “It’s now a comprehensive publishing solution.”

This commit signifies the end of an era, which actually ended a long time ago but is now formally recognized in the software’s language.

A simple blogging platform? That probably ended with WordPress more than 10 years ago. Definitely before this decade. WordPress has been known as a CMS app for a long time.

Svbtle.com is a blogging CMS-hosted solution. Svbtle does not provide software for download for users to host on their own server setups. The main point is that Svbtle has few features, compared to WordPress. Svbtle is a blogging tool.

One way to "fix" this, unfortunately, is the same way some firms "fixed" their non-GDPR compliance. Block European users. More specifically, block users coming from IPs known to be located in Europe.
