Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast October 1, 2019
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest No major change in this week’s weather, but next week are are having to go much wetter. It seems that we are actually pulling some moisture forward out of the extended 11-16 day period into next week. In any case, there is still plenty of opportunity for the outlook to change, but you will notice a lot more liquid in our forecast for next week. Here is our look this morning.We are mostly sunny and very warm again today and tomorrow. South winds keep temps well above normal, and we should be rain free each day. Now, clouds will increase tomorrow afternoon in far northern Ohio, and overnight tomorrow night we cant rule out a couple of scattered showers from US 20 north…but generally we have pretty limited moisture potential. WE return to dry, sunny weather for the balance of Thursday and Friday, but with cooler temperatures. We are partly sunny Saturday. So, for the rest of this week, we really have little to no threat of moisture over the majority of the state.Sunday changes that. Scattered showers develop through the day. Initially, the moisture looks pretty benign. Sunday moisture totals will be from a few hundredths to .25″ with 70% coverage. But, then Sunday night through Thursday morning we have significant rains circulating over the state. Combined rain totals will be from .5″ to 3″ and 100% coverage. This could provide for a significant interruption in harvest.10 day rain potentialThe extended 11-16 day period is a bit drier this morning. We see partly to mostly sunny skies for Friday the 11th through Sunday the 13th. Monday the 14th can bring a few scattered showers from US 30 northward, but nothing south. We cant rule out a shower or two with otherwise cloudy to partly sunny skies for Tuesday the 15th, but we are mostly sunny to finish the extended period on Wednesday the 16th.Temperatures remain normal to a bit above normal through the middle of October ,and we see no significant threat of frost at this time. The cooler temps late this week will be welcome, but not abnormal…remember, normals are falling off quickly this time of year…and we are getting spoiled with the kind of highs we are seeing today and tomorrow.
