Warm and Dry — Western Canadian #Harvest16 Weather Forecast

Could the great dry up finally be on for Western Canada? Will we stay frost-free to Thanksgiving?

Real Agriculture’s Shaun Haney is joined by senior agriculture meteorologist for DTN Bryce Anderson to talk current weather trends for Western Canada —  including what’s behind the cool, wet weather trend most farmers have been grappling with for some time.

i just listened again to mr. andersons Oct 1 weather forecast for western Canada. as I see combines parked at “the next swath” I wonder if they were taking advise by his forecast. not much has happened with the western Canada harvest since the dry Oct forecast. reminds me of grandparents telling me “to give er while the sun shines.” how true now, looking back. my belief in forecasters is more in looking back than foreward!
