Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast – August 6, 2019

We stay partly to mostly sunny today, but a frontal boundary is pushing closer to Ohio for tonight and tomorrow. 


Scattered showers arrive into NW and west central Ohio late this afternoon and evening, and then continue to spread south and east from there through tomorrow morning. All action is gone by tomorrow midday (sooner in the west). We expect 80% coverage. Rain totals from a few hundredths to half an nearly, but most of the state that sees rain stays under .4”. The threat of thunderstorms, and therefore heavier rains has the best chance of developing in northeast Ohio Wednesday, and in SW Ohio overnight into early tomorrow morning. 


Turning out partly sunny Wednesday afternoon as the action moves away. .


Scattered showers return with a second minor front on Thursday. We see a few hundredths to .25” with coverage at 40-50%. The map below shows rain totals through Thursday. The higher rain totals are all very dependent on thunderstorms. 


Mostly sunny, dry and warm Friday through Monday.


Showers and thunderstorms develop from Midnight Monday night through Tuesday noon. Rain totals can be from .25”-1.25” still, but we likely see the low end of the range developing, and any heavier rain will be come from thunderstorm action. Expect rain coverage of 60%.


Wednesday should be partly sunny to the north, but showers and storms are still possible south of I-70. There rains can run from .25” to 1” with 75% coverage.


Dry Thursday and Friday to finish the 10 day period and start off the extended 11-16 day forecast window. Clouds increase on Friday.


Showers and thunderstorms are possible from Friday overnight through Saturday. Rain totals can be from .25”-1” with 80% coverage.
