Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Colder air remains over the state today. A frontal boundary passed yesterday, allowing this cold surge into the region. This is just leg one. Leg two (and I would suggest the stronger push of cold) comes early next week. more on that in a bit.We should see better sunshine today, as high pressure sits right over the top of the ECB. Once we move onto the backside of the high (tomorrow) we should start to see temps moderate We stay dry tomorrow, as well as Sunday, although clouds start to builds Sunday afternoon and at night. Sunday likely is the warmest day out of the next 10.Our next front arrives overnight Sunday night and then continues to sweep through Ohio on Monday. Cold air comes quickly, and precipitation will be happening in that cold air mass. Therefore, we are looking at snow showers developing through the day Monday, where we can end up with anywhere from a coating to a couple of inches, depending on location. There can be some lake interaction through Monday too, particularly Monday late afternoon and Monday night which will boost localized snow totals in north central and northeast Ohio. Snows can continue through the overnight in north and east locations. To be clear, the moisture availability is such that we are not talking about a lot of snow, but we clearly are not going to be talking about good drying for that 24-36 hour period. The map at right shows snow potential through Tuesday mid morning.Brutal cold air comes in behind the front for Tuesday through Thursday. Temps will be upwards of 25 degrees below normal with the worst on Tuesday. The map at right shows temps vs. normal Tuesday night…only the lake keeps a few areas on NE Ohio from bottoming out like the rest of us. We likely struggle to get out of the 20s at midweek next week, and some single digit lows will be working in on occasion. But, we are dry all the way through. Dryness continues next Friday and Saturday, but temps start to moderateMoving into the extended forecast period we stay dry for Sunday the 17th, then overnight Sunday night through Monday we have rain showers developing. These showers are not all that impressive, but we do have potential for a few hundredths to .3″. Most of that comes in the northern half to third of the state, say from US 30 northward. Southern Ohio likely ends up with nothing.A much bigger storm complex arrives for Wednesday the 20th. This will be all rain again, as temps stay mild. However, we see moderate to heavy rain, with rain totals of .5″-1.5″ over 100% of Ohio. This far out, we think there may even be a threat of thunderstorms! We finish out the extended period with sunny, dry weather, and temps stay mild.10 day cumulative liquid equivalent precipitation.So, while the next 7-10 days are nasty, we warm afterwards. But, the warmth likely triggers more moisture. So, the best harvest potential comes in the cold, but that will not help the natural dry-down of grain in field. Basically we try and choose the best looking pig in the pen.

Switching from a liberal outfit claiming to be devoted to serving people since generations to a right-wing Hindu nationalist party might seem like a startling turn of events (or perhaps not so!) for a politician; but upon a second look, without seeing this through the prism of politics but as a very common phenomenon, this is the plight of another woman fed up with the offending patriarchal method of functioning at her workplace. All India Congress Committee Convenor and National Spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi quit the Grand Old Party, expressing dissatisfaction with the party on Wednesday for reinstating some leader who had misbehaved with her at a press briefing in 2015, and two days later on Friday, she joined Shiv Sena in Mumbai. Not only has Priyanka Chaturvedi been vocal about matters of women empowerment and safety, she makes her mark by standing out with her articulate assertions about what she upholds. And of course, she did pay the price for it from time to time – the way it happens in the advanced, modern world with social media just a click away – trolls and abuse would pour in, her family was publicly threatened, even some party leaders (from Congress) attacked her. Initially suspended by the party, their reinstatement is what made Ms. Chaturvedi feel let down by Congress. “I realised that I will fail several women if I continue”, she said at a press conference. Indeed, this resonates with a lot of women who intend to work sincerely and diligently but preconceived notions pertaining to their womanhood invariably eclipse their capacity and performance. Also Read – A compounding difficultyThe other prominent reason for her to walk out was being denied an election ticket from Mumbai (it went to Bollywood actor Urmila Matondkar) “Yes, I wanted a ticket but I knew it would not lead to bitterness if the decision didn’t come my way. The reason has been that when we talk of women empowerment, we need to live by them.” She is quoted as saying. Some clear dynamics we see here is that irrespective of the stage of performance, the story of a lesser-star employee (particularly if it is a woman) is roughly the same everywhere. Regardless of how effective a person might be in terms of work, they are essentially a means to further some cause of the organisation under the brand of which they perform. A political party is no exception – before being an instrument of democracy, it is an organisation the top priority of which is its own survival, secondarily, its people. Women-centric method of functioning comes with the purpose of marketing an idea for ulterior gains. Not to defeminise, but women need to be treated as individuals based on their competence and set an example of a level playing field. At its root, Priyanka’s walkout is more of a social matter than a political one.

Sales during the last fiscal stood at Rs 17,273.39 crore as against Rs 14,928.95 crore in 2017-18. “Considering the headwinds, we have managed a healthy volume growth across geographies for the full year, as well as, in the fourth quarter of 2018-19.

Also Read – Ashok Leyland stock tanks over 5 pc as co plans to suspend production for up to 15 daysThe increase in raw material prices by nearly 10 per cent in fourth quarter also impacted the performance, he added. “In India, with the green shoots already visible in the replacement market, we are optimistic about the overall sales picking up post the elections; European operations, on the other hand, will continue with its strong performance on the back of increased supplies from Hungary,” Kanwar said. The company said it holds unsecured, short term intercorporate deposit of Rs 200 crore with IL&FS Financial Services. The said deposit was due for maturity on October 22, 2018. However, IL&FS defaulted on the payment. The interest accrued and due on this investment of Rs 8.03 crore till October 22, 2018 has not been recorded, the company said. “As a result of increased credit risk in relation to outstanding balances from IL&FS and the uncertainty prevailing due to the proceedings pending with the NCL T, the entire amount of Rs 200 crore has been written off, of which Rs 100 crore was provided for up to December 31, 2018,” it added. Crisis-hit IL&FS Group is under a debt of over Rs 94,000 crore and various entities, including some former officials and auditors, are under the scanner for widespread irregularities and huge loan defaults.
