More stable weather?
Obviously, this year’s growing season has had big swings—from a cool, wet spring, to a hot, dry late summer in large parts of the country. Given the weather volatility so far you have to wonder what's a head for the rest of the season.
“There are some long-term signs in the upper levels that ridging in the Eastern Pacific will maintain a trough across the central U.S.,” said Freese-Notis Weather in its morning report Tuesday.
One key indicator, the Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO), is showing signs of producing normal temperatures for the central U.S., Freese-Notis said. “Thus, it does appear a more stable climate regime is on its way for much of the central U.S, with below normal temperatures to finish October and start November.”
Happy harvest everyone...
