Ag. Weather Outlook 4-21-2014

It looks pretty good now. Thats how MSU Extension Educator Mark Longstroth sees things moving into late April even after a round of snow mid-month and a chilly night with readings down in the teens in some places. He says that could have proved potentially problematic - but he doesnt see any real damage from it at this point. He equates what transpired during the depths of winter as equivalent to a freeze event. However, almost everyone is ready to put those events in the rearview mirror and move ahead with spring. It looks like well be allowed to do just that this week with only a few shower interruptions from a frontal system due in Thursday and Thursday evening. After a way-above average start to the week temperatures will hold in the 50 to 60-degree range for a few days before heading up again by the end of the week. Lows are expected to stay in the 30s and out of the danger zone. That makes it easier to see where Marks it looks pretty good now is coming from.
