TODAY ON AGDAY

MARCH 26, 2013

 

MIDWEST STORM:

A LATE-SEASON SPRING SNOWSTORM BLEW THROUGH THE MIDWEST THIS WEEK, THREATENING JOINTED WINTER WHEAT AND SPRING CALVES. THAT'S OUR TOP STORY ON AGDAY.

WINTER WHEAT FREEZE:

MEANWHILE, THE STORM ALSO CAUSED TEMPERATURES TO DROP INTO THE 20S IN THE SOUTH. USDA CHIEF METEOROLOGIST BRAD RIPPEY SAYS THIS COULD HARM ACRES OF THE WINTER WHEAT CROP ALREADY JOINTED IN NORTHEASTERN TEXAS AND EASTERN OKLAHOMA. AS OF LAST WEEK, 31 PERCENT OF OKLAHOMA'S WINTER WHEAT CROP HAD JOINTED.

FLOOD RISK:

MEANWHILE, IF YOU LIVE IN THE RED RIVER VALLEY, YOU MAY WANT TO QUICKLY TRADE IN THOSE SNOW BOOTS FOR RUBBER WADING BOOTS THIS SPRING. ABOVE NORMAL SNOWFALL THAT FELL IN THE NORTHERN TIER OF THE U-S THIS WINTER COULD MEAN FLOODING THIS YEAR. THIS IS NATIONAL OCEANIC AND ATMOSPHERIC ADMINISTRATION, OR NOAA'S, LATEST U-S SPRING FLOOD RISK. IT SHOWS FLOODING WILL MOST LIKELY OCCUR IN EASTERN NORTH DAKTOTA AND NORTHWEST MINNESOTA. NOAA SAYS LATE SEASON SNOW MELT COULD ALSO CAUSE FLOODING IN SOUTHERN WISCONSIN, NORTHERN ILLINOIS AND NORTHERN MISSOURI.

CROP WATCH:

OLE' MAN WINTER ISN'T READY TO GIVE-UP, JUST YET.
