Weather Outlook

The outlook for August calls for slightly warmer than normal temperatures and normal and slightly drier than normal. Normal rainfall is about 0.75 inches per week in August.

As we go into the end of the growing season in September temperatures will likely remain normal or slightly warmer than normal with rainfall normal.

However, as we get into harvest season indications are it will turn wetter than normal for October and November . This will challenge harvest season again! This will add to an already tough year on Ohio crops.

All indications are with wetness setting in during fall, the frost and freeze season will likely be later than normal.
