Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast — July 23, 2018

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Rain was impressive over the weekend,  but we are not even close to being done. Strong low pressure has already provided plenty of wrap around moisture, and we see that holding on over Ohio through the next two days. Today and tomorrow we will not see rain all day, but the threat will be there all day, and we think we can add a few hundredths to half an inch to our totals each day. 2 day coverage will be at 90% of Ohio, and we can even see rains linger through Wednesday morning over NE Ohio. We had been looking for rain to take longer to clear out here than farther west, but even this is a change from our thinking from late last week. The map at right shows rain totals through Wednesday midday.  By midweek we starting to see some drier weather and hopefully will see better sunshine potential for Wednesday afternoon and Thursday. A cold front sags south into Ohio overnight Thursday night, and may be able to bring a few hundredths to .25” to about 60% of the region from I-70 northward. South of I-70 we see nothing.  Friday is dry again, and we see similar weather for Saturday and most of Sunday. However, overnight Sunday night into Monday we expect a large circulation to move across Indiana, and we need to watch this to see if any of that moderate to heavy rain can make it in here. The circulation seems to want to fall apart rather quickly on Monday, and that would limit rains here. Still, we are going to put clouds and at least scattered showers in the forecast for Monday into early Tuesday of next week with totals under .5″ and coverage at only 60%. We will be watching the evolution of this event, though, and may have to increase thunderstorm chances and rain totals if things come together right. Dry behind that system for Tuesday, and then a minor front still is on the way as we flip the calendar into August. However, the front is looking much less impressive, as we think it will lose a large chunk of energy and moisture to strong weather outbreak 36 hours prior for Sunday night. The chances of moisture may even drop further as we get closer to the even, depending on how that Sunday-Monday system evolves.  For the extended period, there is not much going on through the first couple of days as strong high pressure stays close by, but, late the 4th we see a system coming together in the western belt that will take a few days to push east. This will likely bring some half to 1-inch moisture potential back to the eastern corn belt for the 5th and 6th. High pressure returns on the backside of that system.  Temps look to be normal to below normal the next few days, and then sneak above normal late this week into the weekend. WE cool off next week after the strong storms Sunday night and Monday.last_img read more

Google Pixel 3 XL in white leaked in live images, shows display notch, glass back

first_imgGoogle’s upcoming Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will be in focus over the next few weeks as we approach the company’s hardware event that is likely to take place sometime in October. We have already seen some renders of both the devices as well as some live images of the Pixel 3 XL last month, which suggested that the bigger model will sport a display notch. A new set of live images of the alleged Pixel 3 XL surfaced online over the weekend which once again reveals the notch as well as the rear panel.XDA Junior Member dr.guru shared some hands-on images of the Pixel 3 XL in a white colour variant. The images show that the XL model will sport a curvy notch and a significant chin. A likely reason for the bottom bezel being thicker is to make room for the second front-facing speaker. The notch will house a smaller earpiece, a single front-facing camera and a sensor for ambient light. The regular Pixel 3 will go with a more traditional 18:9 display without a notch much like the Pixel 2 XL.On the back, we expect to see an all-glass panel rather than a glass and metal combination as seen on previous Pixel phones. You can still expect a dual tone color scheme, but the variant seen in the live image shows a very subtle difference between the white shade on the top and on the bottom. As per the person who leaked the photos, he top part will have a glossy look while the bottom will be a matte-like finish. The all-glass back suggests the upcoming Pixel phones will support wireless charging, although there’s still no confirmation on that.advertisementSince these photos are of an early engineering model, some design elements may change when the final product is showcased in October. As for the specs, past reports say that the Pixel 3 is rumoured to bring a 5.4-inch 18:9 display while the Pixel 3 XL will get a 6.2-inch display with a taller 19:9 aspect ratio. Both the phones will of course be powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset, but there is no word yet on the memory and storage configurations we can expect. You can also expect USB Type-C support and Android P out-of-the-box.ALSO READ: Google Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL design leaked from all angles in fresh renderslast_img read more
