.AVIATION /06Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/... TONIGHT WILL REMAIN MOSTLY CLEAR THROUGH 08-11Z AT WHICH TIME SKY COVER WILL INCREASE WITH CEILINGS DEVELOPING AROUND 3500 FT THEN DROPPING FAST TO AROUND 1500-2000FT. 2000FT WINDS WILL INCREASE TO 30-35KT OVERNIGHT AS WARM AIR ADVECTION MOVES INTO THE REGION...BUT SURFACE WINDS WILL REMAIN UNDER 15KT OUT OF THE SOUTH. AS THE WARM/MOIST AIR ERODES THE DRY/ARCTIC AIRMASS IN PLACE OVER THE REGION THERE COULD BE A TRANSITION PERIOD WITH A FEW HOURS OF VERY LIGHT FREEZING RAIN TO THE SITES STARTING AROUND 10Z AT KTOL AND KFDY AND 12-16Z AT KCAK/KMFD/ AND KYNG (AT THIS TIME NOT EXPECT -FZDZ AT CLE OR ERI). EXPECT IT TO LAST FOR JUST AN HOUR OR TWO BEFORE THE SURFACE TEMPERATURES WARM ABOVE FREEZING. AROUND 12Z THE LOW LEVEL JET WILL INCREASE OUT OF THE SW AT 40-45KT WHILE THE SURFACE WINDS REMAIN SOUTH UNDER 15KT. FORECAST SOUNDINGS SHOW THIS CONTINUING THROUGH THE BETTER PART OF THE DAY WITH AN INVERSION STAYING IN PLACE AND OFF AND ON RAIN SHOWERS AND MVFR CEILINGS. HAVE INCLUDED LLWS IN THE TAF SITES EXCEPT FOR ERI WHERE THE SURFACE WINDS WILL BE STRONGER AND WINDS ALOFT NOT AS STRONG LATER IN THE DAY. .OUTLOOK...MORE NON VFR SHOULD RETURN SAT NIGHT AND CONTINUE MUCH OF THE TIME SUN THRU TUE SHIFTING INTO MAINLY THE SNOWBELT WED.

Cleveland Center Weather Service Unit (CWSU)
Mission:
Our main responsibility is to provide up to the minute weather information to FAA Supervisors and the ZOB Traffic Management Unit (TMU). Some of the products issued by the CWSU are the Center Weather Advisories (CWA) and the Meteorological Impact Statement (MIS). The CWA is an aviation weather warning for thunderstorms, severe icing or turbulence, and low IFR ceilings and visibility. The MIS is a 2-12 hour forecast for weather conditions, which are expected to impact ARTCC operations.
 
Operations:
The Cleveland Center Weather Service Unit (ZOB CWSU) is located at the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Air Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC) in Oberlin, OH. Four National Weather Service meteorologists staff the office. Our hours of operation are from 6:00 A.M. to 9:30 P.M. daily.
