Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast December 4, 2018

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Clouds are still hanging on very pesky-like today. We won’t even rule out some scattered light precipitation…either sloppy wet snow flakes, ice pellets or a even a sprinkle or two. Coverage will be minor, around 60% maximum. Parts of the state will see breaks in the cloud cover from time to time, but we think we are going to have to push bigger sun totals off a bit longer here. Most of today’s action comes from strong north winds coming down the Great Lakes. Lake effect snows are likely in the typical areas  in northeast Ohio, but we expect clouds and hit and miss moisture still from the lakes as well. Everything tries to move out by tomorrow morning, but may leave a coating to half an inch.Wednesday features mixed clouds and sun, but on Thursday we have another quick moving little disturbance that comes through the state and brings some scattered snow showers into the region. The best snows come from I-70 southward. We can see a coating to an inch or so…but that is it. Potential combined snow totals through sunrise Friday are shown on the map at right.No change for the rest of the week. We continue to see a longer-term dry stretch. We expect to stay precipitation free from Friday through next Thursday. Temps stay below normal through next Tuesday. However, we still see signs of a significant warm up Wednesday through Friday of next week. Strong south winds drive that warm up, which could produce a similar ramp up to what we saw late last week ahead of the strong weekend event (namely fog and a very damp feel…not good drying).In the extended period, we have a few widely scattered showers and a lot of fog for Thursday and Friday, but then moderate rains are back for Sunday the 16th. Half to 1.5” rain potential would come with that event…making it eerily similar to this past weekend. Temps fall off fast behind it.last_img read more

Cabinet nod to set up panel

first_imgThe Punjab Cabinet on Tuesday decided to set up a sub-committee to examine all aspects of the proposed Punjab Land Leasing and Tenancy Bill, 2019, and authorised Chief Minister Amarinder Singh to set up the panel and decide on its terms and tenure.The decision was taken at a meeting held here under the chairmanship of the Chief Minister.Finance Minister Manpreet Badal will be the committee head, with Social Security Minister Aruna Chaudhary and Revenue Minister Gurpreet Singh Kangar as its members.An official statement said the Bill aims to repeal the six existing tenancy laws to bring in major reforms in matters of leasing of agricultural land in the State. “It seeks to balance the rights and responsibilities of landowners and tenants, besides providing a process of fast adjudication for resolution of disputes. The introduction of this transparent land leasing law is aimed at not only allowing the landowner to enter into a written contract with the potential tenant without the fear of losing his land to him, but also to incentivise the tenant to make long-term investments in improvement of land and get access to credit and subsidies,” said the statement.The Cabinet also approved new Bills relating to procurement, amendment to State civil services rules and postings in veterinary hospitals in the State, as well as the Punjab Sports University and Excise Act Amendment Ordinances. Approval was also given to the Punjab Forest Produce Transit Rules, 2018, and The Punjab Regulation of Wood Based Industries Rules, 2019, in a bid to boost agro-forestry activities. Revenue from zoosIt also decided to revert to the earlier system of depositing the revenue collected from sale of entry tickets and other sources in all zoos of the State in the Punjab Zoos Development Society account.“The decision has been prompted by the increase in footfalls at the zoos thus leading to growing challenges in maintaining the zoos,” it added.last_img read more
