Rain moves into Ohio today from west to east. However, it will be a slow progression. Action by mid morning will only make to near I-75, and by midday to early afternoon, only the western half of the state will be seeing rain. Clouds increase in the eastern part of Ohio this afternoon toward sunset, but rain likely does not end up in all areas of the state until closer to midnight. WE expect moisture to continue overnight, and a second wave of moisture comes tomorrow, and may not leave far eastern areas until early Wednesday. 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 embedded in it.
Dry for the balance of Wednesday in the east (or all of Wednesday in the west), then remaining dry through the rest of the week and start of the weekend.
Showers move into northern Ohio Saturday afternoon and overnight, bringing rains of .25″-1″ with 80% coverage from I-70 north. The rains fall apart as they move south Sunday, though leading to only a few hundredths to a tenth or two from I-70 south Sunday midday through evening.
Dry Monday through Wednesday of next week. Map below shows potential rains for the coming 10 day period combined.
Temps look to be mostly below normal this week through Thursday. We should be normal to above normal Friday into Sunday morning, then below normal behind the front Sunday afternoon through next week.
