Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast November 5, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest A minor trough sags through the state today, triggering some clouds as it does. Precipitation is going to be limited from this, but we do still have to allow for a few hit and miss showers south of a line from Cleveland to Greenville with coverage of 60%. NW parts of the state end up with no new precipitation today. Tomorrow will be sunny and dry in all areas.Thursday, rain spreads over most of the state as a cold front comes down from the north, and moisture lifts up from the SW, meeting over OH. We should see anywhere from a few hundredths to .5″ with coverage at 85% of the state. Only far NW areas will  have a good shot at missing the moisture there. Significantly colder air comes in on the backside of that system.WE are much colder for Friday and Saturday, with partly sunny skies likely both days. Sunday clouds increase and we can see some afternoon rain or snow showers over areas from I-70 north. Liquid equivalent precipitation totals are small, a tenth or two at best, but that still can keep a more damp feel, even if sloppy wet snowflakes decide to try and mix in. The best threat of wet snow would be in the overnight, as temps drop off.Another surge of cold air takes our temps on another leg down to start next week. We will be well below normal Monday-Wednesday. The map at right are temps vs. normal around midnight Monday night. The purple is an area of temps 30-35 degrees below normal. That is brutal cold.   We should see some sunshine off and on for Monday and Tuesday, but lake effect clouds and snow showers are possible over the state on Wednesday, mostly central and north. Mostly sunny skies are back for Thursday.In the extended period, we have a chance of rain showers with moderating temps for Friday the 15th, bringing rains of .25″-.75″ to 80% of Ohio. Then drier, colder air returns for the 16th through 18th. Another strong system finishes out the 11-16 day extended period for Tuesday and Wednesday the 19th and 20th. Rains can be from half to 1.5′ with 100% coverage. So, our drier, potential harvest windows are better nearby than in the extended period.last_img read more

[Infographic] Welcome To The, Um, Second Social Media Election

first_imgFacebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Related Posts The 2012 U.S. presidential election isn’t the nation’s first social media election. This time around, though, the contest is shaping up to be a newsfeeding frenzy.There are lots of ways to participate in the upcoming election online, but social media provides more opportunities than ever. Four years ago, slightly more than 20 percent of U.S. citizens used social networks. That number has snowballed to 50. Since 2008, Facebook membership has increased nearly 10 times, Twitter membership by a factor of five. Barak Obama’s list of friends and followers has ballooned by an order of magnitude. Similarly, Mitt Romney has more than 10 times as many as John McCain did last time around (though still only about a pitiable quarter of the incumbent’s social-network following).How are the candidates taking advantage of all their newfound connections? Not so well.See also: How To Watch The U.S. Presidential Debates OnlineAt first glance, the president appears to be on the ball: He tweets 29 times a day to his challenger’s one. That said, Barry’s tweets are boilerplate newsbites reported in the third person, clearly written by a harried flack. Mittens’, on the other hand, are somewhat personal statements in his own somewhat combative voice. (I know which candidate I’d subscribe to, if I were in a subscribing mood – never mind which one I support.)For more perspective on how social media is shaping Election 2012, check out this fascinating infographic from marketing firm Vertical Measures.

Jason Blackwell UK service providers will benefit

first_imgJason BlackwellUK service providers will benefit from consolidation and multiplay strategies in the coming years, with bundled subscriptions set to grow by 20%, according to new research.The Strategy Analytics report claims that quad-play revenues will triple between 2015 and 2020, while total multi-play market revenues will grow by 34%.By 2020, quad-play is tipped to account for more than 21% of bundled subscriptions in the UK, while double-play subscriptions are expected to peak in 2016 and decline thereafter as customers move to triple- and quad-play bundles.“Multiplay bundled services are rapidly gaining ground in the UK as more players have entered this space through expansion and acquisition,” said Jason Blackwell, director of the Service Provider Strategies service at Strategy Analytics.“BT’s acquisition of EE has positioned the company very well, enabling cross-selling of services and giving BT a strong network with fibre and 4G.  Based on its strategies in the Netherlands and New Zealand, Vodafone may need to revisit the opportunities for partnerships in the UK.“Competition in the UK market is already intense, and we expect to see price discounts in the form of long term introductory offers and through multi-service purchase, as operators try to take customers from competitors. However, the successful operators will avoid a race to the bottom, and hold overall pricing by upselling customers to faster broadband speeds, premium TV channels and larger mobile broadband buckets.”last_img read more
