RealWeatherWatch- Harvest Forecast for September and October – Western Canada with Drew Lerner

Harvest has begun here in the West, and for the most part the outlook is good. Even with the weather here on the prairies being notoriously unstable, this summer has been one of the most consistently hot in a while. If that pattern holds, we could be looking at some pretty decent harvest weather.

In the first episode of our new feature RealWeatherWatch we talk to meteorologist Drew Lerner of World Weather Incorporated.
