  • Much Needed Dry Time On Deck For #Harvest14…

    Despite another day of showery, damp weather Wednesday, the overall “trend is our friend” in the short to mid range as a much drier pattern develops.

    Drier, cooler air will penetrate into the Mid West and Ohio Valley as the weekend draws closer.

    It’s important to note the GFS has support on the drier trend to include some other highly respected mid range model suites such as the Canadian and European.

    The next round of rain arrives Tuesday with reinforcing chilly air that could deliver mid and late week frost and freeze conditions for parts of the region.  The Canadian is a little more bullish on rainfall totals when stacked against the GFS and European.  We’ll continue to monitor.

    Regardless of Tuesday rain, we’ll quickly return to a dry regime by the middle of next week.

    The Climate Prediction Center (CPC) agrees on a drier pattern in the mid range.

    Latest forecast rainfall totals off the GFS model suggest amounts of 0.50″, or less, across the region over the upcoming 7-days, and it’s important to note half of that likely falls Wednesday with showers associated with swirling low pressure around the region.
