Wet Pattern Likely Into Next Spring!

Author(s):
Weather Map 11-20-17

The wet pattern arrived this fall and continues. It has resulted in flooding and harvest delays.
 

It does look like for the rest of November it remains colder than normal with only light precipitation events every few days. However, it will not be cold enough to freeze the ground and make better traction for equipment in the fields.

For winter and spring, it looks wetter than normal. Temperatures will trend from warmer than normal to start winter in December to slightly colder than normal by late winter into spring.

This is all based on the current La Nina advisory that the NOAA Climate Prediction Center has issued.

For the next two weeks, rainfall will average 1-2 inches with most of that coming after December 1st. See the attached graphic from the NOAA/NWS/OHRFC for details.
