Chris Berman on Jon Gruden, how the 49ers adopted the ‘Swami’ and his upcoming Bay Area honor

first_imgSAN FRANCISCO — Though he was born in Connecticut, broadcaster Chris Berman somehow had a Bay Area native for an inner child. Berman gravitated to the Giants as a kid, choosing Willie Mays as his favorite player in 1963 after his father instructed him to keep his eyes on the do-everything centerfielder.In 1981, before either Joe Montana or ESPN were household names, the 26-year-old anchor with a window-rattling voice hosted the 2:30 a.m. ET SportsCenter.

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast — March 7, 2018

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest 180307_RyanMartinCold air holds over Ohio today. Moisture kicked off late last evening and overnight will see some strengthening in the next 24 hours over Ohio. Today, we are cold enough to see mostly light snow and flurry action through the morning into early afternoon. We look for 70% coverage, and there is the potential for a coating to an inch or two of general accumulation, while north central and northeast parts of Ohio can see 2-5 inches due to lake effect and enhancement.Dry conditions move in tomorrow, but clouds will still cast a wide footprint across the state, with significant wrapping around the low that is moving off to the east. Temperatures struggle to break the lower 30s tomorrow and will only do a few degrees better for Friday over the northern half of the state. Down south, we can push toward the lower 40s tomorrow and maybe toward 50 on Friday. Sunshine is back for Friday as high pressure drifts through.Our next system is still on track for overnight Friday night into the start of the weekend. We are keeping I-70 as the delineation line for precipitation, with rains likely only south of there. We see precipitation breaking out early Saturday morning over the southwest areas of the state. The heaviest rains will be in far south central Ohio, near the river, where we can see up to a quarter of an inch. The rest of areas that see scattered showers will be more like a few hundredths to a tenth or to. The closer you get to I-70, the lesser chance of rain we have Saturday, and north of I-70, we should stay dry. Another surge of rain brings up to half an inch of moisture to southeast Ohio Sunday, but the rest of the state just features a mix of clouds and sun.Dry weather is expected for next week. Monday-Wednesday have been dry, and we are extending that through Friday the 16th. We still like a system for late the 16th into the 17th with minor moisture. Temperatures will moderate next week, and we should be back to normal and above normal levels. We continue to watch a system for the 20th and 21st, where we can see some rains of half to 1 inch at least. Strong southwest flow in the extended 11-16-day forecast window will lead to a slightly higher chance of stormy weather.last_img read more
