Ohio Ag Weather Forecast September 23, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest A frontal boundary is working through the state today, and will bring good moisture to 80% of the state. WE expect rain totals to be .25″-.75″. Action will be done by late afternoon/evening, and we clear out overnight. This front will be by far the best organized round of moisture over the next 10 days.Sunny and dry tomorrow, then partly sunny on Wednesday. Temps will be normal to slightly above normal, but not even remotely close to the warmth of this past weekend. Overnight Wednesday night through midday Thursday we have to keep an eye out for a few scattered showers. These will have potential for only a few hundredths to .3″ and only 70% coverage. Most of that will be in the norther half of the state, but we wont rule it out in other areas.Dry to finish the week next week, next weekend and through Monday the 30th. Temps will continue to be mostly normal to a bit above.A front next Tuesday (1st) through Wednesday (2nd) has the potential for scattered showers from I-70 north. This is a slow, sagging front, but it does not have an inordinate amount of moisture with it…so rains are not that impressive. A few hundredths to .4″ look to be the most likely totals for the time being. Coverage will be 70% from I-70 north.10 day rain potentialThe extended period shows cooler air headed toward the region and slightly more frequent chances of moisture. However, we still only see one well organized, strong front, and that is likely early in the 11-16 day window, around Thursday the 3rd into early Friday the 4th.last_img read more
