first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Still chilly today, but we see a little bit of temperature moderation for tomorrow and early Saturday. Generally, we still see higher precipitation threats for the weekend and early next week, as moisture seems to want to focus more on Ohio than the rest of the eastern corn belt.Today we see at least partly sunny skies, but we stay chilly. Tomorrow, with a mix of clouds and sun, we cant rule out scattered late afternoon rain showers trying to develop near the Ohio river. However, most of the action stays south into KY and WV.Saturday looks to be our most active day of weather, with moisture overspreading the entire state. Temps look like they will be cold enough to make most of the action come as snow. Right now we will throw out a projection of 1″-5″ with coverage at 75% of Ohio. However, there is a chance that a little of that may come as rain, especially farther south. Any rain will take snow potential away. The moisture sticks around most of the day. The map at right shows weekend precipitation potential, in liquid equivalent form.Sunday should feature a mix of clouds and sun, but we get colder air back in over the region. On Monday we have to allow for some scattered rain or snow shower action early in the morning down near the Ohio River again, but the rest of the state misses that action. Sun will be replaced by increasing clouds through Monday with a chance of minor snow showers or flurries developing in afternoon and evening hours. Coverage will be limited to 40%, and totals are not impressive. Tuesday, we see morning snow showers bringing a fresh coating to 2 inches to 80% of Ohio, but by afternoon sunshine is back.Sunshine finishes the rest of the 10 day forecast window for Wednesday through Saturday. WE will stay chilly the first two days, but expect significant warming for next Friday and Saturday. Models are in stark disagreement over temps for the extended 11-16 day forecast window, with one saying well above normal and the other saying more well below normal air is coming. The disagreement is impressive, and means that we are going to continue to watch closely over the next 2-3 days for signs, but think that a normal to slightly below normal bias should be expected for the week of Christmas at this time.last_img
