MM’s 5-Day Forecast
Short-Term Precip Model
This radar model moves in one-hour increments, starting at 7:00 a.m. this morning and ending at 11:00 pm. Notice the general trend of showers increasing, especially as we get into this evening and overnight. This model isn’t always accurate but it seems to be doing a great job with what I’m thinking for today.
Yesterday’s Weather Statistics
On This Day
1913 – The freshwater fury , a rapidly deepening cyclone, caused unpredicted gales on the Great Lakes. Eight large ore carriers on Lake Erie sank drowning 270 sailors. Cleveland, Ohio, reported 17.4 inches of snow in 24 hours, and a total of 22.2 inches, both all-time records for that location. During the storm, winds at Cleveland averaged 50 mph, with gusts to 79 mph. The storm produced wind gusts to 80 mph at Buffalo, New York, and buried Pickens, West Virginia, under three feet of snow.
1996 – The Veteran’s Day storm of November 9-14, 1996 may be the most severe early season lake effect snow (LES) storm the Great Lakes has witnessed in the past 50 years. At the height of the storm, over 160,000 customers were without power in Greater Cleveland alone, as the storm produced isolated snowfall tallies approaching 70 inches. As usual with these LES events, the Veteran’s Day storm battered snowbelt communities downwind of each of the Great Lakes while nearby towns went unscathed.

72-Hour Jetstream Forecast
Jet streams are relatively narrow bands of strong wind in the upper levels of the atmosphere, typically occurring around 30,000 feet in elevation. Jet streams follow the boundaries between hot and cold air. Since these hot and cold air boundaries are most pronounced in winter, jet streams are the strongest during winter. The map below begins 6:00 a.m. this morning and moves in six-hour increments.
72-Hour 500-mb Map
The 500 millibar (mb) map plots a variety of information collected by weather balloons and represents atmospheric conditions at an altitude of approximately 18,000 feet. These maps, like the jet stream maps, provide a good snapshot of what is occurring in the atmosphere above and can be especially useful in the winter and spring. The map below begins 6:00 a.m. this morning and moves in six-hour increments.
