Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast July 9, 2021 – Ohio Ag Net
We seem to be locked into a pretty wet pattern as we go along. In our opinion, we only see one decent chance of a completely dry day for the entire state over the next 10 days, and even that could end up at risk, with downpours and clouds. Persistent today in parts of northern OH. The most active precipitation path over the next 10 days is in southern OH, but we all see chances of rain several times by the 20th.
Today we should be pretty dry in Ohio. As we mentioned above, we are dealing with a few clouds lingering this morning over north central and northeastern Ohio that can trigger a spit or pinch, but in general we wont let’s see no new well-organized humidity today. We also stay dry overnight.
Tomorrow, rain will start to seep fairly early in Southwest OH, then spread to the rest of Southern OH throughout the day. However, we are looking for the hat moisture to remain largely south of I-70, and partially sunny skies will be visible further north. Southern Ohio can pick up .25 ″ -75 ″ for Saturday. On Sunday, the action intensifies northward and we see the potential for severe thunderstorms in northwestern Ohio. The best potential for rain on Sunday is in the afternoon and evening. Rain totals for the day range from 0.25 ″ to 1 ″ with 90% coverage
Scattered showers are expected every day from Monday to Saturday next week. Daily rainfall totals will primarily be less than half an inch and daily coverage will not exceed 60%. But, we see rain somewhere everyday, and combined for the week, almost everyone sees a potential for rain at least 2-3 times. The combined rains of the week add an extra 0.5 ″ to 1.5 ″. Next weekend, the active precipitation trail favors the southern half of Ohio, with most Saturday and Sunday rain remaining south of I-70.
The weather will be normal to above normal throughout the period, fueling a very heavy and energetic model. This gives us the fuel to wring out the moisture as this forecast suggests. We’ll see significant 10-day rainfall totals (see map below), but manageable totals. The only thing to watch out for will be the development of severe thunderstorms. If we can maintain daily highs of less than half an inch, even if it rains every day, we won’t be in bad shape after next weekend.
