After some significant rains this past weekend, we put together 2 dry days before our next round of moisture comes through. We will see the remaining acres that are left to harvest get drawn out for a good while now, as our pattern is colder and more active. Today, as we mentioned, will be sunny and dry, with tomorrow similar.
Our next system arrives on Wednesday, bringing showers, and then the rain continues through Thursday and the first part of Friday. Rain totals combined for the event will be from .75″-1.5″ with coverage at 100% of the state. We may have a few sloppy wet snowflakes as the precipitation ends in far northern Ohio on Friday, but the coldest air looks to wait to arrive until after moisture is basically done.
We go drier again for the balance of Friday, and then stay rain free through the weekend and Monday of next week. However, temps will be well below normal through the period.
We finish the 10 day forecast window with a chance of some widely scattered showers moving through the state next Tuesday afternoon (5th) into early the 6th. This will amount to no more than a few hundredths to a tenth or two, with coverage at 60%. The over night portion again may feature a few few wet snowflakes.
For the extended period, we are adding a few scattered showers for overnight Thursday night into Friday the 8th. Moisture will be a few hundredths to .25″ with coverage at 80%. Colder air follows that wave. The rest of the extended forecast through Tuesday the 12th we have a mix of clouds and sun, with temps normal to below normal.
