Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, June 2, 2023

Hot and dry to finish the week. Temps will be well above normal today, but will ease back a couple degrees over the weekend. We see no significant rain threat through all of next week, as we are taking the shower potential from a Tuesday frontal boundary passage out of the forecast. We will still see a wind shift and a slight pull back of temps into the upper 70s for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, but there is not enough moisture to work with to provide any decent rain threat.

Temps warm back up to finish the week next week, and we are warm, but also dry into next weekend. We are seeing no organized threat of moisture, frontal passage or otherwise, well into the start of the following week, In fact, it may be closer to the 14th/15th, or even the 17th until we see an actual frontal boundary with associated moisture work back into the region.

Now, we will see a bit of instability at times, and as such we can’t rule out a pop up shower or two on a couple of occasions in the next 2 weeks. However, on the whole, we will continue to be very, very dry. Evaporation will be high. We hesitate to call it maximum, as the available moisture to evaporate will be rather low in the coming weeks until we get some rain…but this will quickly escalate as a problem, especially on later planted crops in the state. The map below shows precipitation departure from normal…this is the totals amount BELOW what we should see for the next 10 days. Notice all of the state is approaching 1.5″ of deficit for just the next 10 days.
