    Hot and dry conditions have certainly set in across the Buckeye State. Temperatures this past week have averaged 2-8°F above average, with most locations stringing together at least five consecutive days above 90°F and more to come. Based on the forecast, Columbus will likely reach 11 days this Friday, the longest stretch of 90-degree weather since July 21-31, 1999!

    As recently as last Wednesday and Thursday (May 13-14), some locations across Ohio had morning lows dipping down to near or below freezing (Figure 1). This follows numerous frost and freeze events since mid-April that led to reports of damage to vegetables, tree fruit, and certain grape varieties, and some minor leaf-tip damage to wheat and alfalfa.

    April will end cool and damp after some sun and a milder to start to the last week of April. For April Ohio looks to finish one to four degrees below normal and that is after a warm start to April. Rainfall should end the month of April above normal in much of the state in the zero to two inch range above normal. The northwest part of the state was up to one inch below normal but will likely end April near normal.  Overall, this is a vast improvement over last year.

    It is that time of the year where winter is here but spring is just around the corner.

    The weather, climate and hydrology patterns still remain wet across the region. This makes Ohio vulnerable to wet conditions.

    The outlook for February calls for normal to slightly below normal temperatures with not too far from normal rainfall. There is a chance February could be drier than normal but the chances are not high.

    A more active weather pattern is ahead. We expect a weak to moderate storm with some rainfall every 3-4 days over the next few weeks.

    For the week of Oct 22 expect slightly above normal temperatures by a degree or two and rainfall between 0.25-0.75 inches on average. There could be some scattered freezing temperatures in the north and west sections of Ohio especially come Saturday morning.
