Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast — January 10, 2018

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Well, we have no significant changes to our forecast. First, we will address the next 2 days, which in general, nobody cares about, giving the coming winter storm! Seriously, today and tomorrow will feature mild air again, although the northern part of the state continues to experience what we warned of to start the week…which was the potential for temps to be held in check by the cool snowpack. That cooling may be mitigated a bit more today and tomorrow as south flow picks up, but still, it definitely something to pay attention to. But, the next two days are as we have had them advertised…above normal in most areas, with some well above normal temps.Now, to what everyone REALLY wants to know about! We have made absolutely no change to our outlook for this coming winter storm. Track is still being handled in a tug of war fashion between two major computer models, and our thoughts are unchanged. Our next front should start to throw some affects into the state tomorrow evening and overnight, with those scattered showers continuing off and on through Friday morning. We are keeping liquid precipitation will range from a few hundredths to about a third of an inch over no more than 60% of the state. By Friday midday cold air will begin a full on assault from the west and northwest at the same time our low tracks up into the region along the cold front.   Snow totals will depend heavily on the track of the low. One model takes the storm center more northeast, coming out of northern Mississippi, and the other farther east before heading north. The difference continues to be that of heavy snow in Indiana vs. heavy snow in Ohio. To be truthful, our bias at this time is more IN and west/NW Ohio, but we still are waiting for the storm track to be better defined. Snows can be quite significant out of this system, because it has tied into an ample moisture source, and the cold air is coming in with no major interference. The magnitude of the warm air push ahead of the system, and the strength of the winds will give us an indication that this storm is strong, and will have the potential to produce copious precipitation. . We will put out our official snow totals for this storm tomorrow (Thursday) morning. We still feel this has the potential to be an epic winter storm for a large swath of the Eastern Corn belt, across Indiana, Ohio or both. Gusty winds will produce blowing snow on top of this. The heaviest snows will be from noon Friday through noon Saturday, but wrap around snows can linger through Sunday in northern areas.Behind the system, cold air comes blasting back into the region, and stays through Tuesday. This will include low wind chills and a move below zero at least one night and perhaps more for true air temperatures.The rest of the 10 day forecast features an attempt to moderate temps slightly next Wednesday, but as we have previously stated, the moderation will not hold a candle to this week, Strong southwest winds fuel that moderating push ahead of our next weather system, triggering a brief, slight thaw. But, we look for scattered rain showers changing to snow late next week for Friday into Saturday, followed by cold air through the 21st. The extended 11-16 day forecast period brings another strong front and potential aggressive winter storm for the 22nd and 23rd, as a large, powerful low exits the plains and moves east/northeast. We expect this to bring another round of rains followed by significant snow and arctic air.last_img read more

Punjab budget focuses on getting additional resources

first_imgPunjab Finance Minister Manpreet Singh Badal on Saturday presented budget proposals for 2018-19, pegged at ₹1,29,698 crore, emphasising that the State government was adopting a prudent fiscal road map with its focus on mobilising additional resources to put the economy back on track.Presenting his second budget, Mr. Badal proposed to raise ₹1,500 crore through additional resource mobilisation measures. “The government has decided to bring in a legislation for imposing a nominal development tax of ₹200 per month only on the income tax payees who are engaged in professions, trades, callings and employments,” he said, adding that this move would help in getting loans at cheaper interest rates from organisations such as Asian Development Bank.He added that many States like Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu have been collecting such tax for development for a long time.”The State also intends to bring a new social security legislation to create a dedicated fund to meet its commitment towards the weaker sections of society,” he said.Mr. Badal pointed out that in the last one year the State has reduce the number of days for which the treasury remained in overdraft from 179 in 2016-17 to 98 days in 2017-18, thereby reducing the interest liability on this count on the State by about ₹5 crore. “The State had remained in double overdraft for 29 days in 2016-17. We hope to close 2017-18 without going into double overdraft even for a single day,” he added.While the total budget size was kept at ₹1,29,698 crore, the effective size is ₹1,02,198 crore, as the above figure contains a provision of ₹27,500 crore towards ‘ways and means’ transactions for the current year. The total receipts are expected to be₹1,22,923 crore. The total outstanding debt of the State as of March 31, 2018, is₹1,95,978 crore, which is likely to rise and touch ₹2,11,523 crore in 2018-19.Mr. Badal has proposed to allocate a sum of ₹4,250 crore during 2018-19 for the implementation of the debt waiver scheme.The government has also decided to give free sanitary napkins to all girl students from Class VI to XII in all government schools. A sum of ₹10 crore has been earmarked for this purpose. Besides, to provide free textbooks to students from Classes I-XII in government schools, a provision of ₹49 crore has been made.Amid the budget speech, the Opposition parties — Shiromani Akali Dal and Aam Aadmi Party — shouted slogans, accusing the Congress government of backtracking on its promise of complete farm loan waiver, and walked out of the House.Former Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal dismissed the budget terming it “directionless, meaningless and devoid of vision”.“It documents the government’s betrayal of the farmers, the Dalits and the poor, the youth, the employees and the helpless senior citizens,” he said.last_img read more
