Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast — July 3, 2018

Posted On Dec 17 2019 by

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest No significant changes to the forecast this morning. We still see chances of moisture in over at least parts of the state through the end of the week. We are tweaking next week slightly this morning. For today we have scattered showers developing over the state once again, mostly from midday through afternoon and evening. These will bring a few hundredths to .5” over 80% of Ohio. Tomorrow, we have scattered showers with 60% coverage from I-70 northward, giving another few hundredths to .4”. Then for Thursday, scattered showers and thunderstorms arrive in the state with 90% coverage and rain totals of .1″-1″. For Friday, will be slow to exit off to the south and east, meaning we likely add a few hundredths to half an inch, mainly in far southern and far eastern Ohio, although it is likely too soon to confine the biggest rains to just those areas. We do start to dry down Friday afternoon in NW Ohio. Aver the next 4 days, almost all parts of the state see at least some minor rains.Dry weather in is for the weekend and next Monday. However, temps will be cooler, and we actually expect our daytime highs to be below normal for the period, as the front late this week ushers in a nice drop in temps.Tuesday clouds will be on the increase and we cant rule out scattered showers here and there. Still most of Ohio stays on the dry side. Wednesday sees a good chance of showers in NE Ohio bringing a few hundredths to .3″, but all other parts of the state see at least partly sunny skies. We see sunshine everywhere for next Thursday. The map below shows cumulative 10 day rains over the state. Note that a majority of these rains fall in the next 4 days, not very intense on any given day (save for perhaps Thursday), but the totals for the period look adequate.We see 2 systems in the extended 11-16 day period. One batch of moisture for Friday the 13th through Sunday the 15th will bring moderate rains with totals from a half to 1.5” and coverage at 100%. Then after a dry window for the 16th and 17th, we have another wave arriving around the afternoon of the 18th that can bring moisture back and may have potential of .25”-.75” and 80% coverage.Temperatures, outside of the cool down this weekend, will not be too extreme. We should be slightly above normal today and will see the warmest days of the coming period tomorrow and Thursday with well above normal temps. Then, after the weekend cool down, we go back to normal and slightly above normal levels for most of next week.last_img read more
