Parts of South America are hot and dry, with little relief expected in the near term, according to Meterologist Kirk Hinz at BAMWX.com. Hinz told AgriTalk Host and Farm Journal Economist Chip Flory that the current conditions—including temperatures that are five to eight degrees above normal—are likely to stay around awhile.
Argentina has been particularly hard hit.
“I really think [this weather pattern] will linger into mid-February or maybe even through the entire month of February,” Hinz predicts. “I think things will get worse before they get better.”
