Weather Outlook: Close to Normal

The rest of winter looks to see big fluctuations in temperatures averaging close to normal. Precipitation will also fluctuate above and below normal ending close to normal. This winter will not be like the last is the sense it will be a warmer winter. This is what we were saying in the fall and it still holds true.

Winter so far is warmer than normal with near normal precipitation.

As for spring growing season early indications are normal or slightly warmer than normal with normal to slightly drier conditions yielding better early planting conditions in 2015 over 2014. We will update you in early February as confidence grows.
