Harvest Conditions to Improve Next Week
By Mark Askelson firstname.lastname@example.org
Ada, MN -- With harvest for most being shut down for the last few days and a couple inches of blowing snow forecasted Wednesday, many farmers and field hands alike are wondering: Is this miserable weather ever going to end? Believe it or not there is reason to be optimistic. Daryl Ritchison, Interim Director of the North Dakota Agricultural Weather Network (NDAWN) says it will pass and return to normal, but farmers just need to be patient.
Ritchison says we’ve been spoiled the last several years with great weather during the harvest, but looking into the future it’s likely the next few years may resemble this one.
Even though it may be frustrating, Ritchison notes that farmers will eventually get their crop out of the ground, just like they always do.
Temperatures should return to normal next week with highs in the mid 50s and possibly a few days warmer than that.
