For most of the west, this harvest season has been ideal. Warm to hot weather accompanied by warmer than normal nights made for some late nights and some early starts during the beginning of the season. Even with the great weather, farmers are still pushing their limits as that nagging sense of “it will all change soon” sticks in their minds. That urgency was no doubt brought on by the ever present winter that came and never relented last year. Even Southern Alberta never saw a chinook. That knowledge is leaving producers with the frame of mind to take full advantage of this window and get harvest done. So when will we see break in this pattern?
Russ Murley is with Precision Weather, a weather forecasting and research service based in Maine. He says that we may see a shift in this great weather to more seasonable patterns in the near future.
