SUNDAY UPDATE: Regional Rain Totals for the Past 36 Hours

Weather across east-central Ohio over the past 24 to 36 hours has been fairly active with some gusty wind and a ton of rainfall. All forecasts for the amount of rain came in well short of what we eventually ended up receiving.

Forecasts for wind gusts did somewhat better, although the wind did not mix down from the upper levels as much as I expected. The highest gust reported at Harry Clever Field in New Philadelphia was 37 mph recorded just before midnight last night.

As for rain, I think just about everyone’s forecast fell short. My forecast called for an inch or so for the majority of the Valley area, but that obviously got blown away. Officially at the airport we rang up a total of 3.08 inches of rain yesterday – a record amount for the date, by the way.

Other unofficial weather stations spread out over the area recorded similar amounts. A few topped three inches. Here is a sampling of region rain totals over the past 36 hours:

According to NWS records, yesterday was THE wettest November day on record going back at least 20 years.

If November were to end today, this one would be the second wettest November in the last 20 years, according to NWS records.

With all of that rain both here and upstream, the Tuscarawas River will respond over the next few days. River levels will increase today and tonight and the National Weather Service Hydrologic Prediction Service forecasts minor flooding at the New Philadelphia station.

Those who live or have interests along the river should pay close attention to the water level today and Sunday.

The last of the rain associated with a cold front will continue pushing east and away from the region today and cold air will spread over the region. While we should not see any more rain today, a couple of light showers or a few sprinkles can’t be completely ruled out. With colder air in place, a couple of snowflakes would more likely be something we would see today.

The good news is we will dry out over the coming days. There is no rain (or snow) in the forecast through much of this week. As a matter of fact, high pressure overhead will provide mostly sunny conditions through the week and into Thanksgiving.

Temperatures will remain chilly on Monday but we will recover somewhat by Tuesday ahead of our next cold front due Tuesday night. Behind Tuesday night’s front, temperatures will drop back to the upper 30s for the high on Wednesday.

We’ll remain dry and mostly sunny on Thanksgiving but temperatures will still be chilly with the high on Thursday only reaching 40 degrees or so.

Black Friday shoppers will have dry but cool temperatures in the mid 40s.
