Heat wave on the way

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Jim Noel, NOAAAfter a really wet period last week and even some flooding in northwest Ohio, we will be seeing a switch toward hotter weather and a drier window from Thursday into the weekend.We have had a few hot bursts this summer but nothing like the stretch ahead. So far May and June have been warmer and wetter than normal in most places. It looks like after one more round of showers and a few storms the middle of this week it will turn hot for the end of June. This heat will last into the first half of July before relaxing some for the second half of July. There may a a day or two break from time to time during the warm weather the next few weeks but above normal temperatures will rule into July.Rainfall also looks to relax more toward the normal range but with longer stretches of dryness mixed in with the wetness.The outlook for the remainder of June calls for temperatures to average 3-5 degrees above normal. Rainfall will average 0.50-1.0 inches for the last week of June which is close to normal or slightly below normal. The outlook for the first week of July calls for temperatures to average 6-8 degrees above normal with highs mostly 85-95. Lows will be 65-75. Rainfall will average 0.25 to 1.00 inches which again is normal to below normal for most of Ohio. The outlook for the rest of July (weeks 2-4) calls for temperatures 1-3 degrees above normal and rainfall of 1-4 inches. Normal highs in Ohio are 80-85 and normal lows are 60-65. Rainfall normally average near 1 inch per week.Looking further ahead in the growing season and harvest season, it appears August will still see slightly above normal temperatures and slightly below normal rainfall. September looks near normal temperatures and normal or slightly wetter than normal. Finally, October appears to be about normal temperatures and slightly drier than normal. For the latest 2 weeks rainfall predictions, see the graphic from the NOAA/NWS/Ohio River Forecast Center using the North American Ensemble Forecasting System average rainfall.last_img read more

Google Sites API Aims For Data Liberation

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market dana oshiro In 2008, Google acquisition JotSpot announced that it would “expand upon the Google Page Creator already offered within Apps.” The idea was that JotSpot would power a system to help businesses set up their own collaboration, project management and customer extranets. After 3 years of sitting quietly in the Google arsenal, JotSpot has now reemerged in the form of a Google Sites Data API. Scott Johnston, Senior Product Manager for Google Sites spoke to ReadWriteWeb about the benefits of this new API. In addition to offering users the ability to share and edit user content across Google Sites, all of your content can be accessed using the Google Data Protocol. In other words, as per Google’s Data Liberation Front, users can import and export apps from Microsoft SharePoint sites into Google Sites or vice versa. One advantage over SharePoint is that Google Sites does not require users to maintain software on PCs. Google Sites builds on the company’s already well-established strengths – including cloud-based office tools and impeccable search. With the new API, if users choose to switch from SharePoint to Google Sites, they’ve now got an easy way to migrate their content.

He said his focus remains on the present as he expressed elation with how the Road Warriors have been playing in the season-ending conference.“I like it very much,” he said. “Even our loss against Blackwater, they needed to shoot 17 three-pointers just to beat us by one point. That’s a great consolation for us.”As for the draft, Guiao is confident that regardless of where NLEX ends up this conference, his team can still nab at least a top three selection.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READlast_img read more
