Dialing It Up #NWOhioWx #Wx #OHwx

218 PM Radar Satelitte

The regional radar and satellite view this afternoon shows a very nice setup across Northwest Ohio. Skies are generally partly cloudy, with the cloud cover increasing some due to the heating of the day.

218 PM Temperatures

As a result, temperatures are responding quite well. For the most part, temperatures this hour are in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Expect the temperatures to rise a few more degrees before evening.

Mainly clear skies are forecast for tonight, with low temperatures dropping back into the lower 50s. Mother’s Day tomorrow and Monday are simply looking sensational. Plenty of sunshine, along with high temperatures rising into the middle 70s.

Temperatures will continue to go up as we head into the first part of next week. High temperatures in the 80s are not out of the question. This will be especially true heading into Tuesday & Wednesday.

There will be scattered chances for showers and thunderstorms through portions of next week. The rainfall amounts are forecast not to add up to much. Generally 1/4″ to 1/2″ of rain is forecast during the next seven days. As a side note, while it should remain fairly calm here, the Central and Southern Plains could easily heat up, in terms of the severe weather potential. That is where the most rainfall forecast will be focused.

Stay tuned to the Northwest Ohio Weather Blog for the latest on all things weather.

Update on the Drought in Ohio, and Temperature, and Precipitation Outlook for Fall…

With the recent rainfall here in Ohio, the drought conditions have improvedĀ substantially across the state. Parts of West Central Ohio, as well down along the Ohio River, are not even in drought conditions.


The temperatures will have a better chance of averaging above normal. There will be cold nights ahead this month, but those would be fewer than average.

However, precipitation amounts have a higher than normal chance to be greater than normal.

Let’s hope for more rain (not flooding) to help bust the drought more here in Ohio.

Mid-Afternoon Weather Update…

The mid-afternoon satellite/radar image showing showers and thunderstorms scattered across all of the Great Lakes region. There are currently severe thunderstorm warnings up in Alger and Schoolcraft Counties in Michigan, near Sault Ste. Marie. That is due to a powerful severe thunderstorm coming off the eastern portion of Lake Superior. Large hail and damaging wind likely with that storm.

With all of the rain that has occurred here in Ohio recently, the drought conditions have improved dramatically across the state. The areas in white are now actually out of the drought area. This has resulted in those areas receiving a surplus of rain recently as well.

Labor Day Weekend Rain…

The Hydrometerological Prediction Center has shifted the axis for the rain from Isaac this weekend back into northern Ohio. One thing I caution, though. This projected rainfall forecast could still change.

Plenty of Rain to be Had…

Storm QPF

Note the heavy rain down along the Gulf Coast. However, the potential is there for a soaking rain this weekend here in northwest Ohio. Three to five inches of rain being forecasted for much of Ohio when the remnants of Isaac come up here in northwest Ohio this weekend.

Lots of Rain from Isaac Here?

GFS PCPIN forecast valid 12 UTC Sun 02 Sep 2012

The 48-Hour rainfall projected here on the 12z GFS is serious. Those areas in white could see in excess of four to six inches this weekend. This could still change.
