.AVIATION...ISSUED 136 PM EDT FRI AUG 1 2014 //DISCUSSION... DIURNAL CU OF THE VFR VARIETY HAS DEVELOPED EARLY THIS AFTERNOON AND REVEALED A LINE OF CONVERGENCE DRAPED ACROSS DETROIT METRO. SHOWERS HAVE DEVELOPED ALONG THIS LINE BUT WITH ACTIVITY SLOW TO EXPAND IN COVERAGE OR INCREASE INTENSITY...OPTED TO OMIT MENTION FROM THE 18Z FORECAST...ALTHOUGH A BRIEF SHOWER/TSTORM WILL BE POSSIBLE DURING THE NEXT HOUR OR TWO. BEHIND THIS LINE, PROBABILITY FOR PRECIP WILL DIMINISH A BIT...WITH THE CHANCE FOR TSRA ENDING WITH THE LOSS OF DIURNAL HEATING. WINDS WILL REMAIN LIGHT OVERNIGHT WHICH WILL AID IN PATCHY LIGHT FOG FORMATION. FOR DTW...A BROKEN LINE OF POORLY ORGANIZED SHOWERS AND A LONE THUNDERSTORM ARE GRADUALLY WORKING THRU THE METRO AREA. THERE WILL BE POTENTIAL FOR BRIEF IMPACT OVER THE NEXT HOUR OR TWO, BUT PROBABLE SHORT DURATION AND LOW CONFIDENCE IN DIRECT IMPACT PRECLUDES A MENTION IN THE TAF ATTM. CEILINGS MAY BRIEFLY HOVER AROUND 4KFT BEFORE LIFTING ABOVE 5KFT. //DTW THRESHOLD THREATS... * LOW CONFIDENCE IN CEILINGS BELOW 5000 FT TODAY AND TONIGHT. * LOW CONFIDENCE IN THUNDERSTORMS THIS AFTERNOON.

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.
