Sunny and dry today, but our next front looks to be moving in a little faster. Temps today will be a little warmer again vs yesterday, as south winds start to pick up. Clouds will be on the increase tomorrow midday and afternoon.
Rain arrives with our cold front tomorrow just after sunset in far western Ohio. The front blasts through the state in the overnight through midday Saturday. We are adjusting our rain totals only slightly this morning for the event, .15″-.65″ with 90% coverage. Everything will be done by Saturday mid to late afternoon.
Dry and cooler Sunday and Monday. However, the timing of the front means we don’t have a strong frost risk. The bigger frost potential stays well north into Michigan and southern Ontario. Still, it will be cooler here to start off next week. AT this point we are keeping Tuesday drier too, allowing for just some clouds to develop through the day. We are pushing bigger rains back into next Wednesday.
On Wednesday rain can bring totals of .25″-.75″ to 90% of the state. There is a bigger southwest flow part to the equation this morning, and that will boost the rain potential. Rains will clear out late Wednesday and Wednesday night.
We are dry for the balance of the 10 day window through next Saturday morning.
Today’s biggest weather headlines will be far outside of our area, as an epic winter storm is slowly blasting through the northern plains and upper Midwest, while the cold front associated with it, brings dramatic temperature falls farther south into KS and Colorado. Some estimates have up to 15% of the nations corn crop at serious risk from this storm and a hard freeze. We can see 1-2 feet at least in the Dakotas, and temps in NE Colorado will fall from a high of 80 yesterday to the mid teens overnight tonight (today they barely get out of the 20s). Our weather is spectacular by comparison.
