Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast — February 27, 2018

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest 180227_RyanMartinNo change in today’s outlook. We will be sunny, mild and dry! However, we are having to make a few changes for tomorrow. The wave that we were hoping would stay south into KY is pushing farther north over Indiana, and some of that may try and make a run in here tomorrow afternoon. We will keep rain potential of .25”-.5” in over the southern third of Ohio tomorrow, but may have to allow some spread up closer to the I-70 corridor. Clouds tomorrow do spread all the way across northern Ohio, so while temps remain mild, we will not get the benefit of additional direct sun warming. We can’t rule out a few spits and sprinkles in northern Ohio ahead of sunset tomorrow afternoon.Our next strong, well organized system still is not arriving Thursday midday and afternoon. Low pressure tracks from central IL through NE Indiana and into the thumb of Michigan for Thursday and brings rain totals of .25”-.5” to 80% of the state during the afternoon and into the evening. While we will be in the warm sector for most of the Thursday afternoon period, we still think there is a strong likelihood that the precipitation ends as snow over northern Ohio Thursday overnight into Friday morning as cold air races in behind. Right now we will open the door up to some 1”-4” snow totals from US 30 northward, and there is potential for more as the system interacts with Lake Erie, particularly in NE Ohio. The best accumulations will be north, with southeast Lower Michigan possibly getting pounded…depending on timing. Snow is done by Friday morning, but winds continue to look nasty Thursday night and Friday. We think the winds are the wild card, and have the potential to make this a very dramatic event. We can see winds up to 20-40 mph, which would make any snow up north an absolute pain to deal with. These snow totals and this snow potential is just a working process right now…we will hone in on a more specific forecast tomorrow morning.No change for the rest of the forecast. We go back to drier weather for Friday through next Monday morning. High pressure will slowly work through the Sunday. Cold air holds over the region to finish the week and start the weekend, only moderating once we get south flow on the backside of that high.A cold front brings rain back for overnight Monday night through Tuesday midday, the night of the 5th into the 6th. Rains do not look as impressive this morning, and will mostly be from .25”-.5” with coverage at 70% of the state. Colder air follows on the backside.The extended period has us mostly devoid of new precipitation to start, through the 9th. Then we have 2 significant waves moving across the eastern Corn Belt from the 10th through the 12th. Combined, these waves can bring half to 1.5” rain totals, and likely will deliver below normal temps around mid-month. Still, the pattern does not look nearly as active as what we just got done with this past week…so we should be seeing improvement in our drainage conditions through the next couple of weeks.last_img read more

Urban Meyer event canceled due to unscheduled surgery

While members of the Ohio State football team continue the national championship celebration, an unexpected surgery for coach Urban Meyer prompted the cancellation of at least one event.Meyer’s scheduled appearance at the University of Findlay on Wednesday evening was cancelled due to a “previously unscheduled surgery,” a team spokesman told The Lantern on Wednesday.Reports surfaced Wednesday afternoon that the surgery was an emergency appendectomy.The spokesman said that Meyer could be out of the hospital sometime Wednesday, but there is a chance he will be held overnight.Meyer is scheduled to throw out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium on Friday night. The spokesman said as of Wednesday morning, the plans are still intact for Meyer’s trip to New York.This is the second consecutive spring in which Meyer underwent a minor procedure. Last March, he had minor brain surgery to drain a cyst. He returned to practice the next day after that procedure.Meyer’s health problems when he was coaching at the University of Florida were well-documented as well, culminating in him resigning after the 2010 season. read more

Digicel Foundation opens its 174th school in Haiti In honour of PJ

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Haiti, February 2,  2018, Port-au-Prince –  The Digicel Haiti Foundation this week opened the PJ Mara de Jolivert National School located in the commune of Bassin Bleu in the Northwest department.   Mr. Denis O’Brien, founder of the Digicel Foundation, was in attendance along with a delegation from Ireland and numerous local authorities including the Departmental Director of National Education, Mr. Yves Félizaire.   This school is a special project dedicated to the memory of Mr. Patrick James Mara, member of Digicel Group’s Board of Director, who passed away in 2016.Founded in July 2011, this school, which was operating in a makeshift shelter, is now lodged in new earthquake-resistant and hurricane-resistant premises.   The school has 11 classrooms that can accommodate more than 400 students, an administrative building, a computer lab, a library, a sports field, a kitchen, and a warehouse, as well as bathroom facilities.   This institution, which cost almost US$500,000, is the 174th school built by the Foundation since its inception.   It serves the community of Jolivert, which lacked a school structure that conformed to international building codes.   As a result of this latest addition, the number of students that attend schools built by the Foundation in Haiti now totals 60,000.Commenting on the opening of the school, Denis O’Brien, Chairman and founder of Digicel Group and Patron of the Digicel Haiti Foundation, said; “Education provided in a safe, friendly and conducive learning environment is the bridge to a brighter future for Haiti’s children and we are so happy to be doing what we can to help these children realise their enormous potential.   Dedicated to the memory of my great friend and colleague PJ Mara who had a particular fondness for and affinity to Haiti and its people, the PJ Mara de Jolivert National School holds a special place in all our hearts.”Believing firmly that agriculture also constitutes one of the pillars of the country’s development, the Foundation, in collaboration with the school Principal, Mrs. Loutte Yvette, started a “School Garden” programme to teach students about and involve them in national agricultural production.   Starting with preschool, students will learn to plant vegetables and fruits, to grow them, and to harvest their own produce – a part which will be used for the school canteen and the remainder of which will be sold by the school administration with the revenue contributing to the school’s maintenance.“We are happy to be able to offer this new school to the Northwest department, which already has 12 schools built by the Foundation.   We are confident that it will train several future leaders and contribute to the development of Bassin Bleu,” declared Mrs. Josefa Gauthier, Non-Executive President of the Digicel Haiti Foundation.Press Release: Digicellast_img read more
