.AVIATION...ISSUED 216 PM EDT FRI OCT 31 2014 //DISCUSSION... EXTENSIVE LOW LEVEL MOISTURE WILL CONTINUE TO PIVOT ACROSS SE MICHIGAN THROUGH THE EVENING HOURS ON THE BACKSIDE OF EXITING LOW PRESSURE. THIS WILL CONTINUE TO SUPPORT LOWER MVFR CEILINGS WITHIN POCKETS OF LIGHT PRECIPITATION. A COOLING THERMAL PROFILE AT THE SAME TIME WILL FAVOR AN EVENTUAL TRANSITION TOWARD A RAIN/SNOW MIX. THIS PROCESS ALREADY UNDERWAY AT MBS...WITH THE FNT/PTK CORRIDOR IN LINE BY 21-22Z AND DTW LIKELY NOT UNTIL AFTER 00Z. ANY ACCUMULATION WOULD BE CONFINED TO GRASSY SURFACES. MORE NOTABLY...NORTHERLY WINDS WILL STRENGTHEN THROUGH THE AFTERNOON...LEADING TO GUSTS IN EXCESS OF 30 KNOTS. STRONGEST WINDS WILL EXIST ACROSS THE NORTHERN TAF SITES...WHERE SOME PEAKS GUSTS WILL REACH THE 35 TO 40 KNOT RANGE /ESPECIALLY MBS WITH FLOW DIRECTLY OFF SAGINAW BAY/. FOR DTW...NORTHERLY WINDS WILL STRENGTHEN AFTER 21Z...PEAKING THIS EVENING WITH GUSTS IN THE 30-32 KNOT RANGE. ANY LINGERING RAIN SHOWERS MAY TEND TO MIX WITH SNOW AFTER 01-02Z. NO ACCUMULATION EXPECTED. //DTW THRESHOLD THREATS... * HIGH CONFIDENCE IN CEILINGS BELOW 5000 FT THROUGH SATURDAY. * HIGH CONFIDENCE IN NORTHERLY WIND GUSTS TO 30 KNOTS 21Z-03Z. * MEDIUM CONFIDENCE IN SNOW MIXING WITH RAIN AFTER 01Z.

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.
