Lima Ohio -

It’s a busy time of year for farmers, but thankfully the weather has been cooperating as of late.

With an extended stay by multiple systems of high pressure, we’ve seen mostly clear and dry conditions for the past 11 days. In that time, crop harvesting has taken off in West Central Ohio as farmers try to beat the next batch of rain. We aren’t in a drought, however. According to the USDA, Ohio is seeing adequate soil moisture levels in 58% of the state. So, farmers are waiting for their corn to both mature and dry over the next several weeks given the dry trend continues.

With a chance of showers moving in by the middle of the week, you can expect farmers harvesting what they can before the rain arrives.
