Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We put together two sunny, dry and very warm days here to start off the week. After a soggy weekend in parts of the eastern corn belt (particularly north), we are going to see mother nature shift the evaporation machine into high gear over the next 2 days. We see sunshine and strong south flow combining to take temps to well above normal levels today and tomorrow. Wednesday we continue to see the sunshine and warm air in the central and southern parts of Ohio, but we can see a few more clouds developing in the afternoon up north, and that may take just a bit off our temperature top end. We have to keep our eyes out for a few scattered showers in far northern areas overnight Wednesday night through Thursday, but generally we think the biggest threat stay farther north. For now, we will say there is shower potential from US 20 northward, more so in NW Ohio than in the east. Partly to mostly sunny skies remain over the rest of the state for Thursday.We are sunny and cooler for Friday, with colder air sagging southward out of the Great Lakes. Temps can be somewhat chilly Friday morning, but there is no risk…we repeat…no risk of frost. The closest frost comes is into central Michigan.Sun will be followed by increasing clouds on Saturday, and that may lead to some late afternoon and evening scattered showers. However, there is better rain potential for Sunday with showers and thunderstorms over more of the state. Still, the heaviest potential is northeast. WE can see .3″-1.2″ with coverage at 80%. Monday will have clouds giving way to sun, but some rain can still hold on in far southern parts of Ohio, at least through the morning. We are fully dry to finish the 10 day period.10 day rain totalsThe extended 11-16 day window is wetter, with at least 2 and perhaps 3 threats of rain. Thursday the 10th we have rain bringing .25″-1.25″ over 80% of the state. Then on Saturday the 12th we can pick up another .25″-1.25″ from I-70 south, while northern areas miss out. Scattered showers return on the 15th, but only will give up to .25″ or less.Temperatures will be very warm the next 2 days, but will be closer to normal from late this week through the middle of October. Remember, though, that normal temps are falling as we move through October.
