The pattern discussed last week will continue this week. Expect an active weather pattern as a storm system crosses Ohio Tuesday with lingering light showers Wednesday and Thursday keeping field work at a minimum this week. Drier weather will return by the weekend and much of next week outside of some rain maybe on this coming Monday.
