    After a very wet September across all but northwest Ohio in the Maumee River basin, we can expect more of the same in October. September saw some locations in the top 5 wettest on record for Ohio like Columbus and Dayton.

    There is no change from last week as an overall wetter than normal pattern will persist into the October harvest season.

    The one thing that has changed is that temperatures after last week's hot weather do not look as warm into October. Temperatures are now more likely to be normal or maybe a degree above normal.

    It still looks like the first freeze is on track with a near normal arrival. Most places tend to be in the October 10-20 range in Ohio from northwest to south.

    The warmer pattern will continue at least into the start of October across Ohio.

    The remnants of Florence went mainly east of Ohio with only light rainfall amounts. Temperatures will heat back up into the 80s for much of the rest of this week. Normal highs are in the 70s and lows in the 50s. We expect highs this week mostly in the 80s and lows in the 60s to near 70.

    The next rainfall system will move across the region later Friday or this weekend. Another system will move through by the middle or the end of next week.

    It was quite the wet week across the state of Ohio! Scattered thunderstorms throughout the week brought isolated 1-2” rainfall amounts. The big story began on Friday night, as a stalled out front provided a path for the remnants of Tropical Storm Gordon to move through the region, bringing steady to moderate rain and gusty winds from Friday night through Monday morning.

    Hot weather, possibly close to the hottest weather of the season is on tap over the next two weeks. This should help make corn stalks brown up fast. However, with that heat, high dewpoints or moisture will also accompany the hot weather. This means soil drying will be slower than you would normally expect with high temperatures due to a limit on the evapotranspiration rate. The hot weather will be fueled in part by tropical activity in the Pacific Ocean driving storms into the Pacific Northwest into western Canada and a big high pressure over the eastern U.S.
