September 11, 2019 -- Not a lot of change in thought this morning. We stay warm for the next 2 days, and will be warmer than we had really thought we could be in central and southern Ohio. However, clouds over northern areas and a chance of showers will lead to less heat over the northern half of the state the next two days, with more humidity as a trade off...Read More »
September 10, 2019 -- Warm weather continues tomorrow and Thursday, but we will have to deal with scattered showers over the northern half of the state, from I-70 northward. The showers will have 70% coverage in those areas tomorrow, and 60% coverage on Thursday...Read More »
September 9, 2019 -- Yes, it will be significantly warmer this week. But remember, we have been cooler than normal almost every day this month so far...so we maintain that the "warmth" we see for most days in the up coming pattern will just be enough to manage a return to normal September weather for the month...Read More »

September 5, 2019 -- No change in our forecast this morning. Today will be mostly sunny and pleasant, with high pressure dominating...Read More »
September 4, 2019 -- Sunshine returns to the state today. We may have to deal with a few lingering showers in far east or northeast OH this morning, but generally, we turn out partly to mostly sunny today, and stay that way through the rest of the week...Read More »

August 30, 2019 -- Not a bad weekend for us over Ohio. We start things off today with a partly to mostly sunny sky. There may be a renegade shower or two holding on this morning in far northern Ohio, north of US 20, but that is it and any of those threats will quickly vanish today.Read More »
August 29, 2019 -- A couple of tweaks to the forecast this morning, but nothing major. We continue to see cooler than normal temps over the long haul, and some moisture is on the way too...Read More »

August 26, 2019 -- Two day rain totals (today through tomorrow) will be .25"-1.25". However, most of the state will be more generally in the .25"-.75" range. The heavier range totals have been inserted because we think action in southern and eastern Ohio tomorrow has the potential to have some stronger thunderstorms...Read More »
The Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour unveiled the stresses the corn and soybean crops faced following an excessively wet spring and record slow planting pace this year. Scouts on Crop Tour sampled around 3,000 fields across the Corn Belt in seven of the nation’s most important corn and soybean states.
Pro Farmer estimates the 2019 U.S. corn crop at 13.358 billion bushels, based on an average yield of 163.3 bu. per acre. That compares to USDA’s Aug. 1 estimate of 169.5 bu. per acre. For soybeans, the Pro Farmer production estimate is 3.497 billion bushels, with a national average yield of 46.1 bu. per acre, down from the 48.5 bu. per acre USDA estimated in August.
“Ear counts were lower than last year in all of the Crop Tour states as a result of the rough spring conditions,” said Brian Grete, Pro Farmer editor. “We also found a corn crop that was, in many cases, multiple weeks behind in maturity due to the record-slow planting.”
Jeff Wilson, Pro Farmer’s senior market analyst, said, “Soybean pod counts in a 3-foot by 3-foot square were down sharply across the seven Crop Tour states.
Partly sunny through most of the day today, but our pattern is getting a little more active. I think we’re seeing a mix of clouds and sunshine as we approach sunset. I will not rule out a few scattered showers trying to come in to northwestern areas of Ohio and then central areas as well. Nothing dramatic.
