Soaker Next Couple of Days #NWOhioWx #Wx #OHwx

The current visible satellite picture indicating some filtered sunshine, with the wind being light and variable, unlike yesterday. Temperatures for the most part are in the lower to middle 50s. Cloud cover continues to be on the increase across the area as well.

Also, the rainfall that will be impacting Northwest Ohio in the coming hours is getting its act together down in portions of Illinois and Indiana. Rain is forecast to start falling in Northwest Ohio late tonight/early Thursday morning.

While the amounts differ on this morning’s runs of the GFS, Hi-Res NAM, and the NAM, the one basic idea is evident. Plenty of rainfall is on the way during the next couple of days. Amounts on average between two and three inches is a distinct possibility.

Blanchard River Flooding Potential

As a result of the forecasted amount of rainfall, flooding will naturally become a concern. Given the amount of rain that has fallen recently, the chances for flooding will be on the increase. The area with the most concern of flooding is forecast to be along the Blanchard River in the Findlay area.

We will continue to monitor this developing weather situation in the coming hours here on the Northwest Ohio Weather Blog. Stay tuned.

Soaking Rain on the Way #NWOhioWx #OHwx #Wx


The current visible satellite from the Goes-16 (non-operational & experimental) paints the picture this afternoon. Strong west winds as the upper level low pressure area moves into Canada. Sunshine will be increasing through the remainder of the afternoon and evening.

A wind advisory continues for portions of Northwest Ohio. Winds 20-30 MPH are expected, along with higher gusts, through the early evening. Things overall should begin to quiet down later tonight, and last through the day Wednesday. However, the dry period will only be brief.

A strong area of low pressure will make its march towards the Ohio Valley by Thursday. As a result, an extended period of moderate to locally heavy rain is forecast. The forecast models are painting a picture that will result in at least two to three inches of rain on average through this weekend. Flooding could become a concern once again along the area rivers and streams.

High pressure looks to build back in later this weekend. That will result in an increased amount of sunshine. Stay with the Northwest Ohio Weather Blog for updates on the rainfall potential.

Storm Filled Weekend Ahead #NWOhioWx #OHwx #Wx

604 PM EDT Weather Radar & Satellite

Yesterday was an early taste of Summer, with high temperatures in the middle 80s. Today is a much different story. Temperatures have fallen back into the 50s and lower 60s. Wind direction has switched from south to west. In the short term, that is pulling in cooler air.

The weather should remain fairly quiet through the rest of tonight, along with much of the day on Friday. For Friday Night and into the weekend…

That will offer chances for showers/thunderstorms. There is some risk of severe thunderstorms Friday Night, with attendant risk of large hail. In this time period, the storms are forecast to be elevated. Saturday and Sunday will feature multiple rounds of showers/thunderstorms. The risk for some flooding is on the table as well.

Heading into next week, temperatures will return to being below normal. While there will be more tastes of Summer, some periods of cooler weather are still forecast. Stay with the Northwest Ohio Blog for the latest on the ever evolving weather.

Snow Tonight, Warmer by the Weekend #OHwx #wx #Ohio #NWOhioWx

430 PM Regional Radar

Snow has begun to fall across Northwest Ohio this afternoon. It will continue through the remainder of the evening hours, and into the overnight. Most locations will see around two to four inches of snow before the snow winds down tomorrow morning. Low temperatures  tonight will continue to stay mainly in the 20s. A east to northeast wind will tend to blow the snow around some tonight.

WARMER DAYS AHEAD: Once this storm system departs the region, a return to quieter and milder weather is forecast through the end of the week. By this coming weekend, another area of low pressure is forecast to affect the region, with chances for both rain, along with some snow.

Temperatures for the most part through the next seven days will be generally around or just below normal. No major storm systems are forecast to impact the region during the next seven to ten days.

Stay tuned to the blog for the latest on Northwest Ohio’s weather…

Active Weather Pattern This Coming Week #NWOhioWx #OHwx #wx


The weather today was far different than yesterday. Comparing temperatures to the last 24-36 hours, a 40° to 50° difference has been noted. We have gone from near Summer like temperatures back to Winter time weather in less than 24 hours.


Temperatures have dropped below freezing tonight across all of Northwest Ohio. Some areas have seen light snow falling through the daylight hours today. There was very little accumulation to be had. Clearing skies will be moving into Northwest Ohio overnight tonight. Low temperatures are forecast to drop back a few more degrees, into the lower and middle 20s before Sunrise Sunday.

Plenty of sunshine is in the forecast for Sunday. High temperatures are forecast to reach into the lower 40s. Skies will begin to cloud up once again Sunday Night. Low temperatures are forecast to drop back only into the middle 30s.


An active weather week is once again in the forecast. Chances for thunderstorms return to the forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday as a storm system moves into the lower Great Lakes. Some chance for snow showers return to the forecast by the latter portion of the work week.

Sunday Evening Recap #OHwx #Ohio #wx


What a great weather weekend in Northwest Ohio. Plenty of sunshine, along with well above normal temperatures. Another great sunset as well tonight, as shown here from downtown Findlay.


While there were no record high temperatures today in Northwest Ohio, I would think that no one would complain about it. High temperatures across the region today topped out in the lower to middle 60s for the most part. After the morning fog burned off, plenty of sunshine was to be had during the day.


Temperatures tonight across the region have fallen back into the lower 50s for the most part. Wauseon is the warm spot in Northwest Ohio this hour, with a temperature of 52°.


While the weather pattern will begin to get active early this week, there could be some severe weather risk later this week. The day six outlook has much of Indiana highlighted for a severe weather risk. It is still early, and parts of Northwest Ohio could be included in the risk in later outlooks from the Storm Prediction Center.

Spring in Full Gear Next Several Days #OHwx #Ohio #wx


It is a fantastic Friday Evening across much of Northwest Ohio. Temperatures are still in the 40s, mainly along the Lake Erie shoreline in Lucas and Ottawa Counties.


For the rest of the region, it feels much like Spring. Areas south of US Highway 6 have seen temperatures today rise above 60° today. That has been aided by a southerly component to the wind.

The next seven days will be featuring Spring going into full gear. Chances are there that record high temperatures could be achieved during the next week at times for Northwest Ohio. Chances for any rainfall will not come to be until next week at this time.

Taste of Spring on the Way #OHwx #Ohio #wx

It is a chilly Wednesday Evening in Northwest Ohio. Temperatures across the region are running from the upper 20s to the lower 30s. A northwest wind is adding a chill to the air tonight.

After tonight, the next best chance for precipitation will be towards the middle of next week. Also…

… Temperatures will be much above normal as we head into this weekend, and next week. Some locations could easily run 20 to 25 degrees above the normal daytime high temperature by early next week.


The push of warm air by next week will result in temperatures quite possibly reaching into the lower 60s for highs. Plenty of sunshine will be accompanying these temperatures as well.

Valentine’s Day Storm of 2007 Revisited #OHwx #Ohio #wx

While it is plenty warm across Northwest this Valentine’s Day Week, we go back ten years this week to a situation where it was far different.


The early morning of Valentine’s Day 2007 featured a very strong area of low pressure paralleling the Ohio River between Ohio and West Virginia. Down to the south and east of the center, tornadoes were being confirmed across portions of the southeast United States. While up here in Northwest Ohio, plenty of snowfall and windy conditions were occurring.


By the time the storm moved off to the east, it left a healthy snow blanket across all of Northwest Ohio. Many locations received in excess of six plus inches. At Lima, there was 14 inches of snow that accumulated from this storm.

These two maps are courtesy of the National Weather Service in Wilmington, Ohio. Auglaize, Hardin, and Mercer Counties also got in on the significant snowfall from this storm. More than ten inches of snow was observed in these areas.

This is just a reminder while it is relatively warm currently, Winter can still deal a cruel blow.

Warmer Temperatures Ahead #OHwx #Ohio #wx


CLEARING OUT: Clouds are exiting Northwest Ohio tonight. The wind is still a bit feisty out of the west and northwest as well. Temperatures currently across the region are in the upper 30s to lower 40s. Skies will remain generally clear the rest of tonight. Low temperatures by morning are forecast to be in the middle to upper 20s.

SIMPLY PUT: After this morning’s rainfall, the next seven days are forecast to be dry. In fact, even with the light snow forecast for midweek, precipitation totals by next Sunday are forecast to only be around a tenth to a quarter of an inch.

WARMING UP NICELY: The forecast models continue to indicate a nice warming trend heading into next weekend. Temperatures could easily run 25° to 30° above normal for high temperatures by next weekend. Definitely not feeling like Winter.
