Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, May 16, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Partly to mostly sunny skies will be here today and temps should again be about 5-7 degrees warmer than yesterday. The entire state will be rain free today, but northern areas will see clouds build this afternoon ahead of rain that will be around tonight. Showers and thunderstorms develop near midnight tonight in the far NW part of Ohio, and then spread over the rest of the state from there. The rains hold over Ohio through most of Friday as well. Rain totals are expected to be .25”-.75” with 80% coverage. After a few lingering clouds to start the day Saturday, the entire state sees sunshine, for the rest of the weekend, although Sunday clouds will be increasing along with gusty winds. Temps will be well above normal for the weekend, perhaps the warmest in 8 months! Scattered showers arrive over the state Sunday evening and continue through the overnight. However, we continue to see minimal moisture to work with, so our rain totals remain at few hundredths to .5” with coverage at 70%. A large part of our forecast for next week remains dry. Sunshine dominates for Monday and Tuesday. Sunshine also dominates from Thursday through next Sunday. However, if you notice a small window of time missing, that is the one little hiccup that could upset the whole apple cart next week on dry weather. We continue to watch an exceptionally strong storm complex rip through the central and western corn belt next Tuesday night through Wednesday morning. Right now we still think that most of the action stays west. However, models are all over the place with precipitation. For now, we are still going to stay dry, but say watch the period closely. IF moisture does manage to expand east…it could easily bring a few hundredths to to .25″ of rain, just enough to interrupt our drying. So this will end up being the huge key to a substantial dry window, and perhaps the best planting opportunity we get for the year. Time will tell. The map at right shows 10 day rainfall potential. The rest of the extended period has a little more activity returning. Memorial Day itself, we turn out cloudy to partly sunny with a few scattered showers and thunderstorms moving in. We are raising rain totals for Memorial Day to .25”-.75” with 60% coverage. Tuesday the 28 still looks like the wettest day of the period as we are upping our rain potential there to half to 2 inches and coverage at 80%. The rest of the extended period we are keeping dry with partly to mostly sunny skies the 29th through the 31st. However, the most recent runs of extended models are trying to bring in more moisture. We want to see more data before jumping on something like that.last_img read more

Look Out, Twitpic: Flickr Now Tweeting Images

first_imgFacebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… And here’s a tweet I sent about an image and design from another user, ThisIsStar. The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Sadly, the resultant tweet doesn’t indicate that the image is from another user; we can see this causing some confusion, especially when users are in a hurry. Hopefully, the generator of the tweet will edit the included text to reflect ownership accurately, e.g., “Check out this awesome design from @thisisstar.”So, what will this mean for other services designed to post images to Twitter? While the new Twitter-posting capabilities at Flickr are exciting, they do present a few conflicts and redundancies. If Flickr wanted to kill other image-tweeting services, they should have allowed users to choose to auto-tweet about new batches of photos without having to select each pic individually after the fact. As it stands, only Flickr’s mobile upload function truly replaces services such as Twitpic and yFrog.With regard to services such as FriendFeed or PixelPipe that have been shuffling links to our newly posted Flickr photos over to our Twitter accounts automatically, the new Flickr function doesn’t really help consolidate users’ efforts or save their time. Auto-tweets from third-party aggregators such as these are still the only way to tweet new images from the web without taking extra steps.However, the redundancy issue will rear its ugly head for mobile uploads to the 2Twitter addresses. For example, if I uploaded from my device right now using a 2Twitter address, it would post to Flickr and Twitter first. Then a FriendFeed post would be generated automatically. That FriendFeed note would then get pushed to Twitter. This is clearly too much noise, but Flickr doesn’t give me the necessary incentive to completely turn off FriendFeed’s Flickr integration.Although these issues mean, from our point of view, that the feature still needs improvement, it’s a great way to share already uploaded content from a wide range of sources. Related Posts center_img jolie odell Tags:#Photo Sharing Services#twitter#web According to an announcement today on the Flickr blog, it’s open season for image-sharing via Twitter on the gargantuan photo site.Users can now share posted content on their Twitter accounts using a simple web-based sharing button or via email/mobile using a unique “2Twitter” email address. Although all uploaded content is tweetable, new content uploaded via the web is not auto-tweeted. Mobile uploads are only sent to Twitter if the user’s 2Twitter email address is used.Also, users can tweet images from accounts other than their own.Once a Twitter account is added to a Flickr user’s account as a blog, the “Blog This” function will allow that user to tweet about any image with a short URL and a 116 character limit. The title of the image is automatically included in the tweet. The “Blog This” icon is located on the Flickr photo page and doesn’t appear in a user’s photo stream.Here’s what the function and resultant tweet looks liked when I posted a photo from my own account: A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Auditlast_img read more

CoTweet Opens Public Beta: Now You Can Tweet Like Starbucks

first_imgGuide to Performing Bulk Email Verification A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit The majority of companies on Twitter rely on a variety of tools to allow multiple employees to post to one unified Twitter account. CoTweet is one of the most popular of these tools and it is currently being used by major brands like Starbucks, CocaCola, and Whole Foods, as well as by celebrities like Britney Spears. Starting today, anybody can tap into the power of CoTweet, as the company just announced a free public beta program. In addition, CoTweet also announced that it has raised $1.1 million in VC funding.FeaturesCoTweet has a number of nice features that make it a great choice for any business that wants to get serious about using Twitter, and the fact that it is now available for free also gives small businesses and cash-strapped startups a chance to play the game at the same level as the big brands. frederic lardinois As you would expect from a tool like this, you can easily invite multiple users (up to 6 in the free version), hand out assignments to members of your team (which can be accompanied by notes), and create persistent searches (for your brand name, for example). Other interesting features in CoTweet include the ability to schedule tweets, see statistics from bit.ly in a sidebar right on the site, and set up email alerts for replies and direct messages.Thanks to keyboard shortcuts and a no-nonsense design, using CoTweet is extremely easy, and even though it is meant to be used by multiple users, it’s actually also a great Web-based Twitter client in its own right.Free For NowFor the time being, CoTweet will remain a free product, though it is not clear how long this public beta will last and what CoTweet will charge afterwards. If you are looking for a tool that will allow your team to easily post messages to one Twitter account, then CoTweet is definitely worth a closer look.
