Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast — November 10, 2017

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Ryan Martin 11-10-17Two and a half more fully dry days over the region today and tomorrow as sunshine remains the dominant player. Clouds will likely start to increase tomorrow evening, although a full thickening of clouds will hold off until we get to Sunday morning. Temps will be cool, but should start to really build up tomorrow ahead of our next frontal boundary arrival on Sunday.Rains arrive Sunday mid-afternoon and will continue off and on through the overnight Sunday night. We expect showers to give a few hundredths to up to .4” over about 70% of the state.Dry weather is back for Monday afternoon and Tuesday. Sunshine should be dominant for the period, particularly on Tuesday, with south winds start developing Tuesday ahead of our next potential wave coming in Wednesday. Those south winds will moderate temps for at least midweek, and we think even most of the balance of the week. Rains look stronger again this morning, with better coverage, and that means we will put .2”-.75” rains in over a full 80% of the state. The map above shows a snapshot of the set up around midday on Wednesday.Our next wave is in for the last part of the week next week and weekend. Models are in some disagreement on when and how the front moves through. We look for .2”-.6” rains over 80% of the state for anywhere from the 17th through the 19th. We have plenty of confidence in the system’s development. Timing is where we are still somewhat up in the air. An arrival around the 19th would be where our bias is at this point, matching our previous forecasts, but models have a wide range of solutions at this time. Therefore, we are keeping our forecast the same for now. South winds ahead of the system keep temps near to slightly above normal the second half of next week, and could help enhance precipitation and strengthIn the extended period, while high pressure remains in control early on, we still are keeping an eye on the period just ahead of and through the thanksgiving holiday. A strong front still has the potential to make life interesting in that period with rains up to 1.5”.last_img read more

a month agoEx-Chelsea striker Marko Mitrovic: I was ready to sign for ‘big club’ Bury

first_imgEx-Chelsea striker Marko Mitrovic: I was ready to sign for ‘big club’ Buryby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Chelsea striker Marko Mitrovic has revealed he was set to sign for Bury before they were kicked out of the Football League.Mitrovic, a former Sweden youth international, was signed by Chelsea as a 16 year-old from Malmo FF.The attacking talent spent three years inside the Chelsea academy before being promoted to the Blues first team for the 2011–2012 season. Mitrovic never managed a senior appearance for the club – but his English ties drew him back this summer with the prospect of joining Bury. The striker’s last club was Serbia’s Radnicki Nis and by his own admission, he was convinced Bury would be financially saved and he’d be able to sign for the then League Two club.He revealed to Fotbollskanalen: “I was 100 per cent positive that everything would be okay. We had already agreed on everything and I was just waiting to get to sign. I was ready at the start of the season.”I thought the club would be saved and it also seemed that EFL wanted to save the club. I never thought it was not going to work out.”At Chelsea, Mitrovic won the FA Youth Cup and was part of a generation inside Cobham who included the likes of Michael Mancienne, Jeffrey Bruma, Gökhan Töre and Nathaniel Chalobah. On Bury, outwith their financial problems, Mitrovic insists the club was set up for success. He added: “It was really a big club. They had the old Manchester City facilities and the training facility is located near Manchester United’s and Manchester City’s training facilities in Carrington. It would have been a really good move, but this is how it sometimes is.”- updated September 30 TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Ohio State fans parents of recruits take in Friday Night Lights at

Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer and director of player personnel Mark Pantoni added what they hope will be a new Buckeye tradition with the debut of the first annual Friday Night Lights, a one-day football camp for high school football players inside Ohio Stadium. OSU students, alumni and fans were granted free admission into Ohio Stadium Friday to watch more than 100 high school recruits run through drills with the Buckeyes coaching staff. Meyer and Pantoni created the Friday Night Lights camp in 2005 back when both held positions at Florida, and they decided to bring it to Columbus after its successful run in Gainesville, Fla. Some OSU fans like Andrew Warren, an OSU graduate, said they think the camp is another tool that could give Meyer an advantage when it comes to recruiting the top talent in the country. “Most of these kids have probably never worked out in a stadium this big,” Warren said. “I think just being here in front of all these fans will make some of these guys want to commit because it’s a memorable experience.” Clinton Bowman, stepfather of Trotwood-Madison High School running back Ashton Jackson, said that Friday Night Lights is a good idea, but recruiting ultimately leads back to Meyer’s reputation. “This camp, this stadium and these fans are all great but it comes down to coach Meyer at the end of the day,” Bowman said. “When you look at his track record, his two national championships at Florida, and his coaching style, that’s what kids want to be a part of.” The parents of the campers watched from the East side of the stadium, while the general public was permitted entrance to the West side of the stadium. Donte Horton, father of Lakota West High School running back prospect Mikel Horton, said the camp was just as exciting for the parents watching as it was for the campers participating. “It feels great to be out here in this atmosphere watching my son compete against some of the top high school talent,” Horton said. Horton also said the camp is a good experience that will be beneficial for his son going forward. “Now Mikel has a feeling of what is demanded from him on the college level,” Horton said. “I think this will prepare him and motivate him to be the best he can be.” Luke Fickell, co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach, Mike Vrabel, defensive line coach, and Everett Withers, co-defensive coordinator, were among the OSU coaches present helping the kids through their drills. Meyer, who began his day at Big Ten Media Days in Chicago Friday morning, led drills and talked to players between reps. Jake Collier, an OSU graduate, said the camp overall was a success, but said there’s room for one improvement next year. “I think it would be helpful if they could pass out some printed rosters in the future so people can keep track of who is who,” Collier said. “Besides that, everything was great.” The camp was also a chance for OSU fans to be in the stadium before September 1, when the Buckeyes open up the season against Miami (Ohio). Kickoff is scheduled for noon. read more

Ohio State womens basketball set for stiff test against No 8 Penn

Following a 19-point loss on the road against Wisconsin Sunday, the Ohio State women’s basketball team is in the process of preparing for yet another stiff test against No. 8 Penn State. With a whole week to prepare for this Sunday’s matchup against the Nittany Lions, OSU coach Jim Foster said he is ready to move past the loss to the Badgers. “That was an effort that we had to address for really the first time this year, and it was addressed and that was it,” Foster said. “Now it’s time to move on and have good practices.”  The task of beating Penn State, albeit at home at the Schottenstein Center, might be a tall order for an OSU (11-8, 1-5 Big Ten) squad that has struggled in Big Ten play.  “Everybody has to play their role and people weren’t stepping up to the responsibility,” said senior guard Tayler Hill. “Talk is cheap we just have to play together, it’s as simple as that.”  Meanwhile, Penn State (16-2, 6-0 Big Ten) heads to Columbus on a 10-game winning streak after defeating Minnesota, 64-59, Thursday. The Nittany Lions are 16-2 on the season and undefeated in conference play with a 6-0 record. In fact, Penn State hasn’t lost a contest since a 67-52 drubbing at the hands of then No. 2-ranked Connecticut. The Nittany Lions are led by junior guard Maggie Lucas, who is averaging 19.8 points per game, and senior guard Alex Bentley, who averages 12.9 points per game. “The nice thing is we have had a week to prepare versus preparing for two games in a week,” said OSU senior forward Emilee Harmon. “They have a great backcourt but so do we, so we just have to come out and take care of business like we know we have the ability to do.” OSU is set to tip off against Penn State at 1 p.m. Sunday at the Schottenstein Center. The game will be televised live on the Big Ten Network. read more

Ohio State womens soccer preparing to take on Michigan State

Then junior midfielder/forward Ellyn Gruber (5) pushes the ball up the field during a game against Eastern Michigan Aug. 25, 2013. OSU won 2-1 in OT.Credit: Lantern file photoAfter ending its last two games with draws in double overtime, the Ohio State women’s soccer team looks to focus on the task ahead instead of dwelling on the past.“We’re working on getting our mindset right so we don’t go out on the field with a losing mentality,” freshman midfielder Sydney Dudley said. “We know that we can turn the season around but we have to start now.”The Buckeyes are 5-7-2 overall and 2-4-2 in Big Ten play after their latest contest against Maryland and the prior one against Minnesota ended with the score tied. OSU is scheduled to return to the field Thursday afternoon against Michigan State.Senior midfielder Ellyn Gruber said while the team wasn’t happy with the results, it has found ways to learn from them.“We’ve played really good soccer both games even though we didn’t get the result that we wanted,” Gruber said. “We’ve taken all the positives that we’ve learned and I think we’re ready for a turning point.”Senior forward Kayla Varner said the team has put the previous games in the past and has put its focus into becoming better during practice.“I think we just put the result behind us and we had a really good practice this week,” Varner said. “We’ve had some of our best soccer played at practice, so we’re moving forward.”Dudley said the team has been working on its defense this week in preparation for the Spartans. Dudley also acknowledged that closing in on opportunities while on offense is something the team wants to improve on.“We’ve tightened up our defense a lot and we’re cutting back on the mistakes we’ve been making,” Dudley said. “Our attack has gotten better but we still need to work on finishing.”Another problem that the Buckeyes could be looking to fix is limiting the number of mental errors on the field such as turnovers and deflected balls turning into goals for the other team. Gruber said the team can’t let fatigue distract them from the game.“You can’t take a break for a second,” Gruber said. “That helps by connecting with your teammates and knowing you’re not alone if you’re getting tired.”With an away record of 1-5-1, the Buckeyes are looking to make a change when they visit the Spartans.Kickoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. on in East Lansing, Mich. After the game, OSU is set to make the short trip to Ann Arbor, Mich., for a matchup with Michigan on Sunday at 2 p.m. read more
