Aviation Discussion

.AVIATION /18Z THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/... MVFR CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED THROUGH THE AFTERNOON AS AN AREA OF SNOW SHOWERS DRIFTS SOUTHWARD IN ADVANCE OF A SECONDARY COLD FRONT. OCCASIONAL IFR VSBYS ARE ANTICIPATED AS THIS AREA OF SNOW MOVES ACROSS THE TAF SITE...THUS TEMPO GROUPS WERE ADDED FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL HOURS WITH TIMING USED FROM RADAR. STRENGTHENING COLD ADVECTION AND NORTHWEST FLOW WILL SUPPORT LAKE ENHANCED AND UPSLOPE SNOWS THROUGH TONIGHT BUT CURRENT THINKING IS THAT RESTRICTIONS ASSOCIATED WITH SNOW SHOWERS WILL GENERALLY REMAIN CONFINED TO THE NORTHERN SITES. AN IMPROVEMENT TO VFR IS EXPECTED ON FRIDAY OUTLOOK.../FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY/... VFR RETURNING BY FRIDAY AS RIDGE BUILDS EASTWARD. THE NEXT CHANCE FOR RESTRICTIONS WILL BE SUNDAY WITH THE PASSAGE OF A COLD FRONT.

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.
