.AVIATION /14Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/... A QUICK DETERIORATION IN CONDITIONS OVERNIGHT FROM WEST TO EAST. LARGE AREA OF SNOW WILL OVERSPREAD THE REGION TAKING VFR CONDITIONS QUICKLY TO MVFR. THE MAIN PROBLEM WILL BE THE LONG TERM REDUCTION IN VISIBILITY...GENERALLY IFR...FOR MUCH OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. STILL SOME UNCERTAINTY ON HOW FAR NORTH THE WARMER AIR WILL MAKE IT...BUT IT DOES APPEAR A GOOD BET TO SEE AN EVENTUAL CHANGE OVER TO RAIN AT MGW BY LATE MORNING. A MIX IS POSSIBLE AT ALL PORTS EXCEPT FKL AND DUJ. RIGHT NOW CONFIDENCE IS LOW...SO KEPT ALL SNOW FOR THE FORECAST. WINDS WILL REMAIN LIGHT THROUGH THE DAY. .OUTLOOK.../SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY/... RESTRICTIONS LIKELY WILL PERSIST THROUGH MUCH OF MONDAY. LOW PRESSURE CROSSING THE GREAT LAKES IS LIKELY TO SPAWN WIDESPREAD RESTRICTIONS ONCE AGAIN BY LATE TUESDAY.

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.
