We don't report the weather, we put the weather into perspective and tell you how it will impact your farm or business a year from now! Our 12-time award winning year-ahead forecasting technology uses math/statistics and 24 climate cycles, a completely different methodology than traditional meteorology which is physics/modeling based. It's a battle of beliefs - our way vs their way - and we don't change our forecasts once issued. With weathertrends360 you'll be proactive instead of reactive with Mother Nature's ever-changing conditions. We hope you enjoy Better Weather with Captain Kirk.
If you think this weekend is cold...you're right! For the Corn Belt as a whole and especially the Upper Midwest in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and Illinois this weekend (14-15 May) will be near record cold with the coldest conditions in over 25 years. Widespread hard freezes are likely for the Northern Corn Belt and much of this area was planted too early. The winds will make it feel much colder but could save the day keeping frost from plunging deep into the Southern Corn Belt. Weathertrends360 warned of this potential a year ago in our Seeds of Success Episode I.
