The following commentary does not necessarily reflect the views of AgWeb or Farm Journal Media. The opinions expressed below are the author's own.
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.
September is headed for the weather record books as the hottest in 120 years. And this is not data that has been manipulated or "homogenized" just to prove global warming which hasn't been happening for 18 years. It's just plain hot due in part to our El Nino that is approaching record levels and on pace to eclipse 1997-1998. (CLICK ON IMAGES FOR LARGE VIEW) - yes Agweb folks just taught us that trick. :)
This map shows September to date (through the 24th) for both temperature and rainfall trends. The good harvesting weather remains hot/dry this weekend in the Corn Belt and you’ll have a full blood moon too! The moon will be bright Sunday night and then a full lunar eclipse will start at 8:47pm EDT with the full eclipse at 10:11pm EDT with the peak at 10:47pm EDT. So, if you’re out plowing late this weekend, God may dim the lights above for your enjoyment. :) I can only imagine what a great sight this would be from the middle of a dark Corn field.
Here’s the Saturday weather outlook:
The first weekend of Fall U.S. temperature and rainfall trends - warmest in 17 years:
Here's the Sunday outlook:
Watch for the potential first frost and freeze in the Upper Plains-Midwest 1 October but then more warm weather!
A big THANK YOU to every farmer as you help feed the world! God Bless You! Captain Kirk out. Call me anytime if I can help.
