Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, January 11, 2019

Not much going on today, as we experience the “calm before the storm”. Clouds will be thickening as the day progresses, due to the approaching system that brings us action tomorrow. We expect no new precipitation today.

Snow will move across the state tomorrow, but wont really get going until late morning to midday, moving in from the west and southwest. Snow continues Sunday, but will be tapering off. We are leaving our forecasted snow totals unchanged, expecting 1″-4″ over most of the state, with a few areas pushing closer to 5″. The heaviest snows can be in central to southern Ohio. We do have a renewed concern this morning about some rain mixing in in far southern Ohio, as temps climb tomorrow in to the upper 30s. Any rain would decrease the snow potential, of course, but we think that the rain threat is relatively small. On Sunday, we see light snow and flurries ending across the state through the day as the system exits to the east. The map at right shows updated snow potential through Sunday night.

We will be dry for Monday through Thursday of next week. Clouds increase Friday, as we are pushing back our next system again by about 12 hours. We have a chance of snow developing in the north, and rain in the south, with a few hundredths to .4” of liquid equivalent precipitation over about 60% of the state. The heaviest action will be in the south, where rain is most likely. We turn dry again to finish next weekend, Saturday and Sunday, but we also turn much colder, looking for temps below normal.

The cold theme remains for the 11-16 day extended period. We expect light snow and flurries off and on from the 21st through the 25th. These come like minor, clipper waves, bringing the potential for minor accumulations with each wave, but nothing earth-shattering.
