Welcome rainfall followed by a nice weekend....with 80s to return again soon...

A combination of tropical upper low in Florida moving northward toward Ohio, deep moisture from the Pacific & an upper trough forming another surface low just southwest of our area all spells increasing potential of 1-3" of rainfall for much of the viewing area.  The highest amounts are setting up east of US 421 with 2-3".  The lower amounts of 1" will tend to occur in the western areas.

Wet, cool, Fall-like weather will dominate late today through tonight & tomorrow with northwest winds becoming north.

This will be the only main rainfall event of the month of September for 2021.

We overall look pretty dry after this rain with no substantial rains to early October at least.

Drier than normal trend will be with us through October & November.

Brush & field fire risk will go up in October to November.

After an overall warmer & drier than normal October-November, it still appears winter will hit suddenly & pretty hard in December.  I am still going for below normal temperatures & above normal precipitation with above normal snowfall.

This year, we have a better shot at a White Christmas.

We should then turn suddenly mild around New Year's Eve & the warmer, wetter weather should continue into early January.

Thoughts are that winter returns in late January with colder weather & snow, but the very end of December through early January may have little to no snow at all (after a snowy December).

Late January through the first entire half of February looks colder & snowier than normal, but then late February should turn nice & mild & thaw again.

March still favors above normal temperatures & precipitation with below normal snowfall.
