Ronald- the forecast stated ” Midwest/Great Lakes area” if Ohio hasn’t shifted too far, I’m betting it’s still in the Midwest/Great lakes area and therefore falls under that areas forecast of “WET”.

Where does Missouri fit it? I always wondering.
Thanks for your answer

Thanks for the heads up for Labor Day Weekend. Nothing mentioned for Ohio, so, it appears it will be a very pleasant weekend.

There is hardly a word about the weather in Nevada. I just wonder why, because we do have weather here.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
