    Temperatures and Rainfall: Temperatures will start the first 7 days of April 1-3 degrees F above normal. Rainfall will start April below normal about half of normal. That is some good news  as the end of March (as forecast) was very wet. However, most indications are for the remainder of April after the first week, temperatures will be near normal and rainfall slightly above normal. This will put pressure on early spring planting in April. Evaporation and evapotransporation will be held in check by closer to normal temperatures as we go through April.

    A warmer than normal March is now anticipated now. This is a change toward the warmer side. This will speed up green up conditions and start evaportranspiration early this spring. This will also help to dry out our really wet soils a little bit at least. The bottom line is things are shaping up to not be as tough this spring.

    Above normal temperatures and precipitation will rule July

    Even though it has gotten a little drier recently, the pattern around a big high pressure to the west and south of Ohio favors a warm and humid July with rain chances. However, there will be swings in the the pattern from week to week.

    The first week of July will offer a very warm and humid pattern with increasing rain chances.

    Week 2 will offer a cooler pattern but with continued rain chances.

    Week 3 and 4 will return to above normal temperatures and rainfall near normal.
