The pattern remains drier than normal over the next 2 weeks. We are decreasing the amount of rain that falls tomorrow, but adding some light rain for Thursday, and that leave the “net” moisture for this week right about the same. Other than that, we really only have 1 additional “good” rain chance…and that one right now has the potential to be our biggest rain maker. Still, it likely is not enough.
Dry today with partly to mostly sunny skies and a warm afternoon. We can’t rule out a few pop up showers or a thunderstorm in far NW Ohio later this afternoon or evening. However, the majority of the state is dry.
Sun will be around through most of the day tomorrow, with clouds increasing in the afternoon. Showers move through the state tomorrow through Wednesday from NW to SE, starting late afternoon and evening tomorrow. Rain totals will be a few hundredths to .6” with coverage at 80%. Rains may not be done completely until Wednesday evening. The heaviest action will be in SW OH
Cloudy to partly sunny Thursday with the chance of a few additional scattered showers. Rain totals from a few hundredths to .25” over most of the state, but in east and NE Ohio, we can see some heavier rains up to .7″ Overall state coverage will be closer to 70%.
Dry, sunny and warm Friday through next Monday. Temps climb back to above normal levels. The map below shows rain for the next 7 days….which will be a product of the Tuesday night through Thursday rains, basically.
A front passes next Tuesday. Rain and thunderstorms likely, bringing .25”-1.25” to 80% of the state.
Dry weather returns next Wednesday as clouds give way to sun. There is a risk for some lingering hit and miss moisture early on…but not enough to get us that interested yet.
The entire extended period looks to be rain free, from Thursday the 15th through Tuesday the 20th. Temps normal to above normal.
