WX:
WELCOME BACK TO AGDAY ON THIS MONDAY MORNING WITH METEOROLOGIST MIKE HOFFMAN. MIKE, I THINK THE LAST WEEK WE KNOW WE SET A LOT OF RECORDS FOR COLD. WHAT ABOUT THIS ONE? WE ARE NOT GOING TO SET AS MANY RECORDS, JUST A COUPLE HERE AND THERE. IT'S GOING TO BE ANOTHER COLD SHOT, JUST NOT AS COLD AS WE SAW INTO MOST OF LAST WEEK. YOU CAN SEE THE TROUGH AS WE START THE WEEK OVER THE CENTRAL PLAINS INTO THE WESTERN GREAT LAKES AND THAT'S FUNNELING A PIECE OF ARTIC AIR SOUTH. THIS IS NOT A DIRECT SHOT. YOU CAN SEE SOME OF THOSE LINES COMING INTO THE SOUTHERN PLAINS. THEY ARE ACTUALLY COMING OUT OF THE PACIFIC OCEAN. IF YOU FOLLOW THOSE BACK, THAT TELLS YOU THAT THE SOURCE REGION FOR THAT AIR MEETS DOWN HERE, COMES FROM OUT IN THE NORTHERN PORTIONS OF THE PACIFIC. THE SOURCE REGION FOR THE NORTHERN PLAINS AND WESTERN GREAT LAKES IS OFF THE ARTIC AGAIN. IT'S NOT AS COLD AS NEXT WEEK BUT NONETHELESS, IT IS COLD. WE WILL SEE THAT TROUGH CONTINUE INTO MOST OF THIS WEEK. WE WILL SEE ANOTHER LITTLE SHOT OF IT THERE INTO THE EAST AS WE HEAD INTO THE LATTER PARTS OF THE WEEKEND. WE KIND OF GO ZONAL WITH SOME RIPPLES AND ACTUALLY SIGNS OF THE TROUGH TENDS TO DIG INTO A LITTLE BIT OUT WEST WHICH WOULD WARM THE EAST UP AS WE HEAD INTO THE FOLLOWING WEEK. WE WILL JUST HAVE TO WATCH THAT. THE COMPUTER MODELS HAVE BEEN FLIP-FLOPPING A LITTLE BIT. THERE IS VERY LITTLE QUESTION IN MY MIND. FOR THIS WEEK'S TEMPERATURES, WE'RE GOING TO BE BELOW NORMAL, PRETTY MUCH FROM THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE, ALL THE WAY INTO THE EASTERN SEABOARD. WE CAN EXPECT ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES FOR SOUTHERN AND WESTERN ARIZONA, SOUTHWESTERN NEVADA, MOST OF CALIFORNIA AND SOUTHWESTERN OREGON. THOSE ARE IN BETWEEN NORMAL TEMPERATURES. AS FAR AS PRECIPITATION IS CONCERNED FOR THIS WEEK, WE'RE GOING TO START THE WEEK AS WE ARE RIGHT NOW WITH A POWERFUL STORM SYSTEM OVER THE NORTHERN GREAT LAKES, COLD FRONT INTO THE SOUTHEAST. THAT'S GOING TO PROVIDE THE MAJORITY OF THIS ABOVE NORMAL AREAS AS WE HEAD INTO NEXT WEEK, ALTHOUGH THERE IS A SECONDARY SYSTEM LATER IN THE WEEK THAT MAY AFFECT MOST OF THE SOUTHEAST IN THE EAST. WE WILL GO ABOVE NORMAL IN THOSE AREAS FROM MINNESOTA TO THE EAST COAST AND INTO THE GULF COAST REGION, ESPECIALLY FROM NEW ORLEANS EASTWARD. IT'S BELOW NORMAL FOR MOST OF CENTRAL AND WEST TEXAS. MOST OF THE SOUTHWESTERN PLAINS LIKE KANSAS, NEBRASKA AND OKLAHOMA, AND SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA... THERE IS A SYSTEM COMING IN OUT WEST. WE GIVE ABOVE NORMAL TO THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST AND NORTHERN PORTIONS OF THE ROCKIES. WE WILL CALL IT 'NEAR NORMAL' FOR CENTRAL AND NORTHERN CALIFORNIA, JUST BECAUSE YOU FOLKS WILL GET SOME MOISTURE. THIRTY IS THE OUTLOOK FOR TEMPERATURES. THIS WILL TAKE US THROUGH MOST OF THE MONTH OF DECEMBER. IT IS ABOVE NORMAL FOR THAT SAME AREA ALTHOUGH I AM KEEPING THE FAR SOUTHEAST NEAR-NORMAL, ESPECIALLY THE STATE OF FLORIDA. WE CAN EXPECT SOME MORE COLD AIR. EARLY IN THE MONTH OF DECEMBER, WE MIGHT SEE A SEVEN TO TEN DAY PERIOD NEAR OR SLIGHTLY ABOVE NORMAL. BUT OVERALL, WE WILL EXPECT AN ABOVE NORMAL IN THOSE AREAS. THAT MEANS ABOVE NORMAL IN THE SOUTHWEST AS YOU CAN SEE. PRECIPITATION OVER THE NEXT 30 DAYS WILL SHOW A LITTLE BIT OF A DIFFERENCE HERE. IT'S ABOVE NORMAL IN THE SOUTHWEST AND ALL OF CALIFORNIA. THAT COULD BE SOME GOOD NEWS FOR YOU FOLKS. TEXAS IS ABOVE NORMAL AND THEN ON UP TO THE OHIO AND TENNESSEE VALLEY AND MOST OF THE NORTHEAST EXPECTED TO BE ABOVE NORMAL, ONLY BELOW NORMAL FOR THE DAKOTAS AND MUCH OF MONTANA. THAT'S A LOOK ACROSS THE COUNTRY. NOW LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT SOME LOCAL FORECASTS. WE WILL HEAD TO PORTLAND, OREGON. FIRST OF ALL, INCREASING CLOUDS CHANCE OF SHOWERS, THE HIGH IS AROUND 53. SAINT LOUIS, MISSOURI IS CLOUDY AND BREEZY AND COLDER. THE HIGH IS 42 AND FALLING. THEN LET'S HEAD TO BUFFALO, NEW YORK. LOOK AT ALL THE WARM-UP AFTER ALL THE SNOW! THE HIGH IS NEAR 60.
TEASE:
AFTER YEARS OF AUCTIONS, MACHINERY PETE CAN STILL BE SURPRISED.
FIND OUT WHAT IT WAS NEXT.
MACHINERY PETE:
THANKS, GREG. YOU CAN STAY UP TO DATE WITH THE LATEST DEALS BY FOLLOWING PETE ON TWITTER OR LIKING HIM ON FACEBOOK. IN ADDITION TO HIS WEEKLY SEGMENT ON AGDAY, HE'S ALSO FEATURED EVERY WEEK ON AGRITALK AND AGWEB DOT COM.
ITC TRIPLE S GFSI:
LATER THIS WEEK MANY OF US WILL SIT DOWN FOR OUR ANNUAL THANKSGIVING MEAL.
AND WHILE THE FOOD IS ALWAYS GOOD, SAFETY IS JUST AS IMPORTANT. OKLAHOMA STATE'S DAVE DEKEN SHOWS US HOW ONE SWEET POTATO PRODUCER IS TAKING EXTRA STEPS TO MAKE SURE HIS PRODUCT IS SAFE FOR CONSUMERS.
CLOSE:
THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE THIS MORNING. WE'RE GLAD YOU TUNED IN.
