Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, July 11, 2024

Drier air takes control in Ohio today. We should see good sunshine and lower humidity, just for a bit as “fresher” air rotates in behind the big slug of moisture that moved through the Great Lakes and Eastern Corn belt over the past few days. Evaporation should be near maximum levels today.

Tomorrow starts with a threat of showers and thunderstorms in NW and northern OH, coming from a cluster of activity that fires off overnight in northern IN and MI. That rain could hold through the day, off and on, in areas from US 30 north. Farther south we expect a mixt of clouds and sun. Saturday should be dry in most areas with partly sunny and humid conditions. Then Sunday is similar to Friday, where we see scattered showers around, especially north, but then they work farther south through the afternoon and evening. Sunday moisture should be on the order of .2″-.7″ with coverage at 60%.

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of next week are unsettled, with a chance of on and off showers all three days. Rain totals for the combined 3 day period will be .75″ to 2.5″ with coverage at 100%,. The map below shows the 3 day rain spread cumulative. It bears noting, though, that daily we likely see coverat back toward 60%, so not everyone gets something every day (but some will).

The moisture winds down overnight Wednesday night as a frontal boundary sags through to the south. THat will set us up for a pleasant finish to the week for next Thursday and Friday. We should be partly to mostly sunny, cooler and less humid. However, we do not expect that to last long term, as a strong southwest flow returns for the weekend of the 20th and 21st. Temps climb that Saturday and Sunday. We expect to be above normal on temps for the week of the 22nd.
