7-18-19 Ohio: Outside storm chance NW…otherwise, very warm / dry into the weekend…turning quite a bit cooler into next week. K.

Today's video: http://youtu.be/s9xbam3SSjI?hd=1 Observed rainfall over the past 24 hours: For most of us today, it's pretty much a completely dry day. However, we think there's an outside shot that the storm cluster that's currently pushing south hard across southern Wisconsin can make it into areas like Defiance, Findlay and Lima later this afternoon in a weakened state: Total rainfall guidance regarding our precipitation chances today and tomorrow...as we mentioned in the video, we are somewhat suspect of how far south the guidance is with additional shower coverage to the northern into tomorrow morning...for the ridge of high pressure is…

7-17-19 Ohio: Widespread brief downpours possible today…flipping to excessively hot and dry into late week / weekend. K.

Today's video: http://youtu.be/_Sd5DW0WicM?hd=1 Observed rainfall over the past 24 hours: We likely see widespread hit and miss rains increase as the sun starts to come up throughout the afternoon especially from Cleveland, Mansfield, Columbus, Dayton Cincinnati and points east...quite similar to how an upper-level low pressure systems acts. We anticipate this coverage to diminish quickly as we start to lose the daytime heat near and after sunset: Additional rains especially in the areas mentioned above will be between 0.25-0.75", but we do think a few areas can see up to 1.0-1.5" that see repeated rounds of those quick, heavy downpours...these…

Today's video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ex-ZhpxKmtA&feature=youtu.be&hd=1 PDF Report (click link below to open in HD): Link: 7-16-19 Long-range analysis Key Points: Some storms cluster risks as the ridge builds are increasing in portions of Iowa and Nebraska with rain ongoing in some areas this morning.  Heat really builds later this week with drier risks under the ridge in the Central Plains. Some northwest flow will develop as the ridge retracts early next week and brings some storm cluster risks into the Midwest and Eastern Plains.  We continue to watch for a cool-down in the pattern in week 2 related to a strongly –SOI…

Today's video: http://youtu.be/c5M8hoSYVhs?hd=1 Observed rainfall over the past 24 hours...some locally heavy rains noted especially near Cincy and west of Mansfield: Here's a quick snapshot of simulated radar guidance below, where we are favoring for when things re-spark this afternoon into the overnight...a few of these storms may be locally strong to severe with the risk being damaging winds from Defiance to Cincy to Columbus to Cleveland areas: Total rainfall guidance through Wednesday evening is below...with widely scattered showers anticipated during the daytime hours tomorrow as well...from areas like Cincy to Columbus to Cleveland and especially areas NW we think 0.5-1.5" is…

Good Morning!  Here is your latest Ohio forecast update video: http://youtu.be/araaUyoD6bU?hd=1 Scattered storms will be possible late tonight in mainly northern portions of the state and again tomorrow in southern portions of the state in the afternoon.  In general, the majority of the state will remain dry.  The next chance for widespread precipitation will come on early Wednesday into Thursday as tropical cyclone Barry tracks its way over the state.  As Barry exits, some major heat will begin to work its way into the state. Here is a look at simulated radar from 4PM today through 5 AM tomorrow.  Very…
