TODAY ON AGDAY
NOVEMBER 13, 2014

OPEN HEADLINES:
COMING UP TODAY ON AGDAY CONGRESS IS BACK AND THERE'S PLENTY OF WORK TO DO BEFORE A NEW YEAR BEGINS. COMBINES NOT SELLING, TRACTORS NOT SELLING, DEALERS AND FARMERS JUST WAITING FOR THE LEGISLATION TO PASS... IN AGRIBUSINESS...WHAT'S THE OUTLOOK FOR CASH RENTS IN 2015? G-P-S IS GETTING MORE COMMON IN TRACTORS BUT COULD IT HELP RANCHERS WITH PASTURE MANAGEMENT. AND THE CHESAPEAKE BAY IS KNOWN FOR IT'S BLUE CRAB BUT ANOTHER BLUE INVADER IS RAISING CONCERNS. AGDAY-BROUGHT TO YOU BY CHEVY SILVERADO 2014 NORTH AMERICAN TRUCK OF THE YEAR.
CONGRESS IN SESSION:
GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. AFTER NEARLY TWO MONTHS AWAY FROM THE OFFICE, CONGRESS IS NOW BACK IN WASHINGTON. BUT WILL ANYTHING GET DONE IN THIS LAME-DUCK SESSION? AND THAT'S OUR TOP STORY ON AGDAY.
ISSUES:
GOING INTO THE LAST FEW WEEKS OF THIS SESSION, THIS WOULD BE THE LAST-CHANCE FOR DEMOCRATS TO PASS ANY ITEMS FROM THEIR AGENDA FOR AT LEAST THE NEXT TWO YEARS. REPUBLICANS MAY HOLD-OFF ON SOME ISSUES UNTIL THEY CONTROL BOTH CHAMBERS IN CONGRESS. LAWMAKERS WILL HAVE JUST FIVE WEEKS TO FINISH ANY BUSINESS BEFORE THE END OF THE SESSION, WHICH WRAPS BEFORE CHRISTMAS.
HAVEN WOTUS:
NORTH DAKOTA SENATOR JOHN HOEVEN SAYS STOPPING UNNECESSARY REGULATIONS WILL BE A TOP PRIORITY FOR THE NEW CONGRESS. THOSE INCLUDE THINGS LIKE EPA'S WATERS OF THE U.S. PROPOSAL. HOEVEN MADE THE COMMENTS DURING A CONGRESSIONAL PANEL IN HIS HOME STATE. THE SENATOR IS LEADING THE EFFORT IN THE SENATE APPROPRIATIONS COMMITTEE TO INCLUDE LANGUAGE IN THE ENERGY AND WATER APPROPRIATIONS BILL THAT WILL PREVENT THE EPA AND ARMY CORPS FROM IMPLEMENTING THE NEW RULE IN FISCAL YEAR 2015,
EMISSIONS:
MEMBERS OF CONGRESS TAKING A CLOSER LOOK AT THE PRESIDENT'S ANNOUNCED CLIMATE PACT WITH CHINA. HE MADE THAT ANNOUNCEMENT WEDNESDAY DURING HIS TRIP TO BEIJING FOR THE APEC FORUM.
TPP:
MEAHWHILE, THE FINISH LINE FOR THE TRANS PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP IS IN SIGHT-ACCORDING TO NEW ZEALAND'S TRADE MINISTER TOM GROSER. HE MADE THOSE REMARK TO THE WALL STREET JOURNAL THIS WEEK. HE SAYS THE DEAL IS LIKELY TO BE DONE IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS. HERE AT HOME, CHANGES IN CONGRESS ARE INCREASING SPECULATION OVER WHETHER NEW LEADERSHIP WILL GIVE THE PRESIDENT TRADE PROMOTION AUTHORITY. A DESIGNATION MANY SAY IS NEEDED INORDER TO GET THE DEAL FINISHED.
CROP WATCH:
A COLD FRONT MAY BE MOVING ACROSS THE COUNTRY BUT THAT'S NOT KEEPING WORK AT BAY. MIKE HOFFMAN HAS DETAILS IN TODAY'S CROPWATCH.
CME REPORT:
IN AGRIBUSINESS IT WAS ANOTHER WHIPLASH INDUCING DAY ON MARKETS...WITH SOYBEANS FALLING AND WHEAT ON THE RISE. DETAILS NOW FROM THE FLOOR OF THE CME...
ANALYSIS INTRO:
WITH CORN UNDER FOUR DOLLARS RIGHT NOW, WHAT WILL THAT DO TO CASH RENTS IN 2015? FARM DIRECTOR AL PELL POSES THAT QUESTION IN TODAY'S ANALYSIS.
WX:
WELCOME BACK TO AGDAY HERE WITH METEOROLOGIST MIKE HOFFMAN. MIKE LOOKING AT THIS STORM SYSTEM IT LOOKS LIKE ITS BRINGING A LITTLE BIT OF MOISTURE OUT TO CALIFORNIA. IS THIS THEIR WET SEASON? YEAH WE'RE HEADING INTO IT. YEAH OKAY THIS IS THE TIME OF YEAR WHERE THEY BEGIN TO GET A LITTLE BIT MOISTURE AND YOU HAVE TO HOPE TO BUILD UP SOME OF THOSE SUPPLIES. BECAUSE THEY ARE WAY BEHIND, BUT WE ARE GOING TO GET SOME MOISTURE OUT OF THIS AND SOME SNOW IN THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS OF THE SIERRAS AS THE STORM MOVES OFF TO THE EAST AND HOPEFULLY THERE ARE MORE STORMS BEHIND THAT OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS TO KEEP ADDING TO THAT SNOW PACK AND THE MOISTURE FOR THE REST OF CALIFORNIA. A LITTLE BIT OF MOISTURE IN THE SOUTHEAST A DEVELOPING AREA OF LOW PRESSURE JUST OFF THE PANHANDLE OF FLORIDA WILL MOVE OFF TO THE NORTH EAST AND THAT WILL PRODUCE A FEW SHOWERS HERE AND THERE THROUGHOUT PARTS OF SOUTHERN GEORGIA AND NORTHERN FLORIDA, BUT NOT A LOT. ITS JUST KIND OF GOING TO REINFORCE THE COLD AIR AS THIS HUGE DOME OF HIGH PRESSURE VERY COLD AIR FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR MORE REMINISCENT OF NORMAL JANUARY TEMPERATURES FOR MOST OF THE PLAINS GREAT LAKES OHIO VALLEY AND ON THROUGH THE NORTHEAST. SECONDARY COLD FRONT KIND OF MOVING SOUTHEASTWARD AS WELL WILL INCREASE THE CHANCES FOR SOME LAKE EFFECT SNOW SHOWERS AROUND THE GREAT LAKES AND THERE'S THAT MOISTURE CONTINUING TO COME EAST. YOU'LL NOTICE HOW IT GETS INTO SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA AND THERE'S NOT A LOT OF MOISTURE WITH IT. SO PROBABLY NOT TALKING TOO MUCH IN THE WAY MAYBE A LIGHT SHOWER HERE OR THERE IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA AND THAT'S IT. THAT HIGH WILL PUSH SLOWLY TOWARD THE SOUTHEAST AGAIN JUST EXTREMELY COLD AIR FOR THIS TIME OF THE YEAR AND WE'RE GOING TO SEE THAT LAST FOR SEVERAL DAYS IN MOST LOCATIONS. THE NEXT STORM SYSTEM COMING INTO THE ROCKIES WILL PUT DOWN SOME PRETTY DECENT SNOWS IF YOU LIKE TO GO SKIING THEY MIGHT GET A DECENT START TO THE SKY SEASON OUT THERE. THERE ARE THE PRECIPITATION ESTIMATES OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS NOT A LOT AS YOU CAN SEE BUT WE'RE GOING TO ADD SOME PRETTY NICE AMOUNTS OVER NORTHERN CALIFORNIA AND WESTERN OREGON IT LOOKS LIKE AND ALSO WE'LL ADD A LITTLE BIT AROUND THE GREAT LAKES MOSTLY IN THE FORM OF SNOW HOWEVER. THIS IS MELTED SNOW IS WHAT WE LOOK AT FOR THE PRECIPITATION THIS TIME OF THE YEAR. AND THEN AS FAR AS SNOW IS CONCERNED AGAIN JUST SOME AREAS AROUND THE GREAT LAKES HAVE SEEN SOME SNOW OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS WE'RE GOING TO INCREASE THAT SNOW THOUGH. SOME AREAS MAY GET A HALF A FOOT OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS AND SOME AREAS MAY GET A FOOT OF SNOW IN PARTS OF THE NORTHERN AND CENTRAL ROCKIES THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS ANYWAY OVER THE NEXT 36 HOURS. COLD AIR ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY…YOU CAN SEE EVEN INTO PARTS OF THE NORTHWEST. THESE ARE VERY COLD NUMBERS FOR THIS TIME OF THE YEAR. AFTERNOON HIGHS TODAY ONLY IN THE TEENS ACROSS MUCH OF THE WESTERN AND HIGH PLAINS AS YOU CAN SEE THERE. LOW TEMPERATURES TONIGHT ARE GOING TO DROP OFF CLOSE TO THE ZERO MARK. AT LEAST SINGLE DIGITS FOR MOST OF THE DAKOTAS AND MONTANA EASTERN WYOMING AND LOOK AT THE FREEZING LINE ALL THE WAY DOWN INTO CENTRAL DIXIE. I MEAN CENTRAL ALABAMA CENTRAL MISSISSIPPI WE'RE LOOKING AT TEMPERATURES NEAR 30 DEGREES. I'M SURE SOME OF THOSE ARE GOING TO SET RECORD TOMORROW MORNING. HIGH TEMPERATURES TOMORROW AFTERNOON. 30'S AND 40'S DOMINATE MOST OF THE SOUTHERN STATES. YOU HAVE TO GET RIGHT TO THE GULF COAST TO FIND ANYTHING IN THE LOW 50'S AND YOU CAN SEE THE GREAT LAKES AND THE NORTHEAST THE NORTHERN PLAINS ESPECIALLY SOME TEENS AND 20'S FOR HIGHS. JET STREAM AS WE HEAD THROUGH THE NEXT FEW DAYS. YOU CAN SEE HOW IT JUST KIND OF ROTATES UP AROUND HUDSON BAY AND THAT JUST KEEPS BRINGING SHOTS OF COLD AIR. THERE'S THE COLDEST SHOT. MONDAY AND TUESDAY NEXT WEEK INTO THE CENTRAL PART OF THE COUNTRY, AND THEN WE DO RELAX THE FLOW A LITTLE BIT BUT IT’S STILL COMING OFF NORTHWESTERN CANADA INTO THE EASTERN TWO THIRDS OF THE COUNTRY. THAT'S A LOOK ACROSS THE COUNTRY NOW LETS TAKE A LOOK AT SOME LOCAL FORECASTS. FIRST OF ALL FOR SPRINGER NEW MEXICO TODAY VARIABLY CLOUDY AND QUITE COLD HIGH TEMPERATURE AROUND 32 DEGREES...DEVILS LAKE NORTH DAKOTA MIXTURE OF SUN AND CLOUDS AND FRIGID HIGH OF JUST 16… ALBANY GEORGIA VARIABLY CLOUDY MAYBE A SHOWER HIGH AROUND 63.
BEEF GPS:
WE USE G-P-S TO HELP US GET AROUND TOWN AND STEER SOME OF OUR TRACTORS. BUT CAN WE USE IT TO LEARN THE COMPLEXITIES OF A COWS APPETITE? UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI SCIENTISTS ARE TRYING TO FIGURE THAT OUT.  KENT FADDIS HAS MORE ON HOW PLACING GPS COLLARS ON CATTLE HELPS FARMERS IMPROVE PASTURES.
ITC BLUE CATFISH:
A SPECIES OF FISH IS OVERWHELMING THE NATURAL ECOSYSTEM IN THE CHESAPEAKE BAY, HOME TO MARYLAND'S FAMOUS BLUE CRABS. AND NO, IT'S NOT THE NOTORIOUS FLYING "ASIAN CARP". INSTEAD IT'S BLUE CATFISH. AS MAGGIE MAZETTI REPORTS LOCAL OFFICIALS HOPE THE PROMOTION OF A GROWING COMMERCIAL MARKET CAN HELP KEEP THE INVASIVE SPECIES UNDER CONTROL.
CLOSE:
THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE THIS MORNING. WE'RE GLAD YOU TUNED IN.
