Dry today through Sunday. We should continue to see decent sunshine through that period, although there will be more clouds around both Saturday and Sunday. Temps will continue to push into above normal levels, but will be limited by clouds on any given day.
Our next rain event is still on tap for overnight Sunday night through Monday. Rain totals are not impressive, from a few hundredths up to .7″, but it will take thunderstorms to get to the upper end of the range, and we do not see thunderstorm threats as being as big this morning vs. yesterday’s look . Rain coverage will be around 60%. The system just looks like it is losing steam as it heads into the far eastern part of the corn belt.
Tuesday should be partly sunny and dry for next week, but we may have to keep an eye out for a few scattered showers from US 30 northward for next Wednesday. Moisture totals will be limited to a tenth or two there, and the rest of the state remains dry. Partly to mostly sunny and dry to finish the 10 day period next Thursday and Friday.
The extended period has no changes either. A chance of scattered showers develops for the second half of next weekend, from next Saturday night through Sunday morning. Rain totals stay at a few hundredths to a few tenths with 40% coverage. Our best chances are in far NW OH and far southern Ohio. Dry and cooler to finish the extended 11-16 day period.
