RealWeatherWatch: Is There Smooth Sailing In Western Canada After April 20th?


This time of year can be a bit of a guessing game for farmers trying to pick a seeding date. Early spring tends to bring with it some very unstable weather patterns. Just try and plan an outdoor event for May long weekend and you’ll get a first hand illustration. Trying to get your crop in early enough to benefit from those extra days while trying to avoid a weather event that could cause you to have to re-seed carries some weight.  With crops like barley and wheat re-seeding can definitely pay off in yield provided that the crop escapes any frost risk.


In this episode of the RealWeatherWatch, we talk to Gina Ressler of the Weather Network to get a closer look at the 14 day forecast and gain some insight as to when we can expect our weather to stabilize.
