Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast November 14, 2018

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Dry and sunny through most of the day today as we are in-between systems. However, clouds will start to build later this afternoon, particularly in south and southwest Ohio ahead of our approaching moisture surge from the south. It should be a nice day today in many areas, but still chilly.Moisture is coming about 6 hours faster with our next event. By this evening, moisture will be pushing into far southern Ohio and will be fully across the southern quarter of the state midnight tonight. From there, moisture spreads across the rest of the state through the overnight and through Friday morning . We are keeping liquid equivalent precipitation totals at a few hundredths to .5”, with coverage at 90% of the state. Snow totals will be from a coating to 3” with coverage at 75% of the state. The southern third of the state may end up with lesser snow potential with more rain around. Temps over Ohio look to largely be above 35 degrees through the day tomorrow, which will allow snow flakes to fall, but perhaps not stick around as much to accumulate. Or, we may see predominately rain in some areas. It all comes down to temperatures tomorrow, and right now that is what makes Ohio tough to call on rain v. snow. Either way, all precipitation should be done by sunrise Friday.  The map at right shows potential snow through Friday morning.We should be dry in all areas Friday afternoon through next Wednesday. This is a drier forecast, as we are taking precipitation out on Saturday. There can be some clouds around, but the disturbance is losing moisture quickly, and will have nothing left as it drifts across the state. The weekend should be decent.While we are taking moisture out for the weekend and giving a longer dry window in this forecast this morning, we are going to have to pay for it. That comes next Thursday, on thanksgiving. We are projecting clouds to increase through the midday and early afternoon, and we can’t rule out a bit of moisture, light rain and light snow, from late afternoon through the evening. Rain continues through Black Friday. Totals do not look too dramatic, but still, we will be calling for a few hundredths to .3” with 75% coverage.The extended 11-16 day period starts drier, and we are taking rain out of the forecast for the 24th. However, we are leaving a good slug of moisture in or the 25th and 26th. To be clear, we are still taking about all rain, as temps begin to climb after thanksgiving.  Since we are lopping the 24th off of this precipitation event, we are drawing the top end of the rain projection back slightly and are looking for half to 1.5” rain totals, with coverage at 90%. A second minor batch of moisture arrives a few days later around the 28th and 29th but should produce under .25” of moisture. We cool down with that system and may have to look at a rain/snow mix.last_img read more

Working hard is good but working smart is the key to success: HCL CEO Nayar

first_imgOn a day filled with sports stars and Bollywood celebrities, a straight-talking, yet affable businessman very nearly stole the show. Vineet Nayar, vice-chairman and CEO of HCL Technologies, had the crowd’s attention the moment he danced out on stage to the introductory music at the India Today Mind Rocks Youth Summit 2012.After warming up the crowd with a few jokes, he talked about the qualities one needs to be successful. Among them: knowing from where you’re beginning, seeing opportunities in imperfection, understanding what drives change and finally, figuring out what your role in society is.He added that the beauty of India was that it was imperfect and broken. This, he said, gave Indians the opportunities to experience hardships which made it easier for them to succeed when they worked in environments where things ran smoothly. He added that these imperfections also presented entrepreneurs with tremendous opportunities as they were all problems that were crying out for a fix.Vineet Nayar at the India Today Mind Rocks Youth Summit 2012.On a question from a young delegate about the adverse PR impact on India from the Rajat Gupta insider trading scandal, Nayar said it would be wrong to focus on the wrong Gupta did. Instead, he said it was important to figure out lessons from the case and raise one’s ethical standards. “This,” he said, “is what helps society evolve”.When asked whether the Indian IT industry was guilty of lack of innovation, Nayar turned the question on its head. “Don’t ape growth models of the West,” he responded. “If we’ve created a $50 billion industry and employ 3 million people, we’re doing something right. Maybe executing well is our growth model.”Several young people in the audience also asked about career paths. Nayar had simple advice. He said it was good to work hard, but this was not enough. Using the example of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, he explained that it was just as important to have a burning desire to do something. “Find what your burning desire is and you’ll forget to even eat,” he said. He added a note of caution here, saying working “9-to-9” was not necessarily better than working 9-to-5. “What matters more is the productivity and output during those hours.”On a related question, about what it takes to become a CEO, he responded saying wanting to be a CEO was not the right way to look at it. “Ask yourself what you will do after you become the CEO. If people around you like your vision then you will be CEO one day. Also, ask ‘what’s different about me and what price am I willing to pay, what risks am I willing to take to get there.’ “advertisementlast_img read more
