Aviation Discussion

.AVIATION...ISSUED 1159 PM EST FRI DEC 19 2014 //DISCUSSION... VERY LIGHT NORTHWEST/NORTH WINDS HAVE ALLOWED LOW CLOUDS TO SLIP JUST SOUTH OF THE SOUTHERN TAF SITES. HIGH CLOUDS STREAMING INTO THE LOWER MICHIGAN THIS MORNING WILL COMPLICATE THE RETURN OF THE MVFR CLOUDS...AND CONFIDENCE IN THE TIMING OF THE RETURN OF THE LOW CLOUDS IS LOW...ESPECIALLY ACROSS NORTHERN TAF SITES...MBS/FNT/PTK. VERY LIGHT DEVELOPING SOUTHWEST WINDS WILL SPREAD MODEST MOISTURE BACK INTO SOUTHEAST MICHIGAN TODAY....WITH LOW CLOUDS CREEPING NORTH DURING THE DAYTIME HOURS. THIS TREND SHOULD CONTINUE THIS EVENING AND TONIGHT...BUT STILL NOT SURE IF THE LOW CLOUDS WILL MAKE IT TO MBS. FOR DTW...CONFIDENCE IN THE TIMING OF THE RETURN OF MVFR CEILINGS IS LOW AS THEY REMAIN RIGHT AT THE DOORSTEP...BUT ONCE LOW CLOUDS DO ARRIVE...THEY SHOULD REMAIN LOCKED IN THROUGH THE TAF PERIOD. //DTW THRESHOLD THREATS... * MEDIUM CONFIDENCE IN CEILINGS BELOW 5000 FEET THIS MORNING...HIGH CONFIDENCE THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH TONIGHT.

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.
