Drier weather moves in today. We should be mostly dry today through Saturday morning. The only chance for a little hiccup will be early Friday morning over the northern third of the state. There may be a minor disturbance moving through the great lakes that triggers a shower or two, but coverage is very minor, and at this point we are not going to talk up rain chances much. we will reevaluate again in 24 hours.
A stronger front arrives Saturday afternoon and evening, bringing rain through Sunday, first to northern areas, and then statewide. Rain totals likely from .25″-.75″, coverage at 80%.
Dry Monday through Wednesday with a mix of clouds and sun early, mostly sunny later in that period.
Rain next Thursday brings .25″-.75″ to 70% of Ohio.
