Today will be a slow transition day over most of Ohio. We still have plenty of cloud cover and light moisture over the eastern half to third of the state through the day, and that will keep a lid on temps. We cant rule out a few hundredths to a tenth or two or moisture through the entire day. This morning most of that action is in NE Ohio, but later this morning and this afternoon, it fills in over the entire eastern part of the state. Now, high pressure will drift across the state tomorrow and will help get the weekend off to a good start, with sunshine holding through most of Sunday
We still have clouds starting to increase Sunday evening, and we cant rule out a few showers in SW parts of Ohio after sunset. Good precipitation arrives Monday. The rain reaches 90% of the state and will yield .2”-.8” of total moisture. Everything should be done by Monday night. The map at right shows 24 hour rain totals ending at midnight Monday.
Tuesday turns out partly sunny, and then we see sunshine through Wednesday and Thursday. Scattered showers return for next Friday, and then rain continues Saturday and Sunday (the 30th and 31st). Rain totals remain at .5”-1.5” over the 3-4 day period combined. Coverage will be nearly 100% of the state, although on any given day, the 24 hour coverage may be closer to 65-70%.
Sunshine will be back to start off April for the 1st through the 3rd. Clouds begin to build on the fourth, and then we have a chance of rain from overnight the 4th through the 5th of April. Rain totals up to at least half an inch are expected.
Overall, no real significant change in our outlook this morning, and the next two days look great. Temps will be pulling back a bit next week and can spend most of the week normal to below normal.
