Spring Weather

Spring Weather. I'm Greg Martin with today's Fruit Grower Report.

Spring officially arrived last Thursday and here in the northwest we have been getting little glimpses of it while other areas of the U.S. are still being reminded that winter is not giving up its hold. NW Ag meteorologist Tim Creek gives us a look at what we can expect here in the next couple of weeks.

CREEK: On average for the month of April I do expect we'll see warmer than average temperatures and maybe below normal precipitation. Not real dry but a decreased threat of let's say frequent shower activity. Weather conditions are going to continue to be unsettled over the northwest through at least the first part of next week, maybe into Tuesday. But high pressure will build back into the region for the middle and latter part of the week and another storm towards the end of next week. But once that moves through I think we're going to get to a nice stretch of high pressure that should last up until the middle of the month. Now this system should move through but I do anticipate through the second half of the month that we'll see the dominant feature in our overall weather pattern being strong high pressure with above average temperatures and very frequent threats of any precipitation. Now this means I anticipate a pretty quiet frost season...or month of April with no real serious concerns. Some colder spots may have some problems but overall, on average, warmer and likely slightly drier for the month of April.

That's today's Fruit Grower Report. I'm Greg Martin on the Ag Information Network.
