Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast October 19, 2018

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Dry again today. Clouds will push in over the state late this afternoon through tonight, starting just ahead of sunset in NW Ohio, and spreading southeast form there. In this type of cool air mass we find ourselves in does not take very much to wring out a bit of moisture, so we cant rule out a few scattered showers with these clouds this evening and overnight. In particular, there can be some heavier shower potential around the midnight hour in far southeast Ohio, where we can see a tenth or two. However, the best moisture stays south of the river. The clouds linger through Saturday, and we see a second threat of moisture later tomorrow afternoon, overnight and into very early Sunday.  The disturbance we have previously mentioned moving across the great lakes still is holding together in its push of moisture down into Indiana. From there, the action drifts east and southeast tomorrow, and it is enough to keep scattered showers in the forecast for Saturday late afternoon forward. The event will produce a few hundredths to .25” with coverage at 60% of Ohio. This will not be a lot of moisture but will create a bit of a pause in harvest progress. The map at right shows cumulative rain potential through Sunday morning. Fully dry weather is back for Sunday and goes through next Saturday. This will allow for another excellent surge in harvest. Temps will be normal to slightly below, but we should see good drying winds, and low relative humidity. Well organized rains arrive next Saturday and hold through Sunday. Combined rains will be .25”-1” over 90% of the state. This is the same system we have been watching for this time period for almost a week. It is coming and will end the month with some moisture. Behind that system, we go dry for Monday the 29th, and see that dry weather continues through the rest of the extended period, through at least Friday, November 2. Temps for that period should be normal to slightly above normal,last_img
