Tomorrow will be dry as well, with sun to start, but clouds increase in the afternoon and evening. Still, it should be a great start to the weekend.A front moves across Ohio for the second half of the weekend. We expect showers for Sunday. Rain totals will end up being from a tenth or two on the low end to around half an inch on the top end. Then overnight Sunday night through Monday, we continue to see rain and perhaps a few thunderstorms, but mostly south of a line from Youngstown to Cincinnati. Any thunderstorm threat comes Sunday night, and will be most prevalent in far south central to southern Ohio. Moisture actually will be done Monday midday in western and northern Ohio, and we should see sun return there faster. However those south and eastern locations can pick up another half to 1 inch.10 day precipitation potential.We are sunny and dry for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Temps climb a bit, but will generally be normal to slightly above normal. This will be great dry down weather and will promote harvest opportunity, particularly in the areas that are on the low end of the range this weekend on rain. Then, we have a strong system and cold front that moves through next Friday. Rain and thunderstorms bring rain of .25″-.75″ to 100% of the state. Behind the front we turn much colder as we clear out. We can see frost either next Saturday morning or next Sunday morning, depending on which model you believe. IF we can clear quickly on Friday night, we think Saturday morning is the most likely…but if the front is stalled at all in leaving, that will bring the coldest morning in on Sunday. Lows for this air mass change will be down in the 31-37 degree range, so we are looking at a frost only, not a hard freeze. The timing of this (October 12th or 13th) really not all that big of a story…this is about average for the first frost in our area.High pressure is in for Saturday and Sunday (with a nearby full moon too, everything seeming to align for a frost) as we finish the the 10 day period, and then stays in control for Monday and Tuesday (14th-15th) to kick off the 11-16 day period. Scattered showers are back over the northern half of the state for Wednesday the 16th, triggering a few hundredths to a tenth or two from I-70 north. Then better organized rain hits 80% of the state for Thursday the 17th, but still yields only a quarter inch or less. Dry to finish the extended window Friday and Saturday (19th-20th), but there is a large storm complex lurking out west that looks like it may want to push in shortly thereafter.
