Ag. Weather Outlook 5-30-2014

by Tim Abramowski

We make it through May without a season-ending freeze or catastrophic spring storm. Theres damage to be sure from that extreme cold snap last January and Michigan corn planting is running behind much of the Midwest in the figures going into this week. But a string of warm, sunny days is almost sure to remedy most of that trend. Be waiting for the next round of planting and condition reports to see just how much. The bigger picture indicates good weather news in a place that hasnt seen much in recent years the Southwest, where several rainy systems have put something of a dent in the dryness. That wont last. Nothing weather-wise ever does. That includes the late-May chain of sunny, mild dry days. Youre likely to hear someone wish they could go on and on. Beware what you wish for when that happens its called a drought.
