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.
Here's your 3-day Columbus Day weekend weather outlook:
10 Oct Saturday: 90s in South Dakota in middle October...that's pretty HOT! Don't tell that to folks up in Quebec Canada where they'll be freezing...literally...with high temps only in the low 30s. It will be raining Pineapples in the Pacific Northwest with remnant moisture from Hurricane Oho that tracked from the Southeast of the Hawaiian Islands this week. A strong low pressure center in Central Canada and a strong high pressure in the Midwest will create a strong Southwest wind flow across the U.S. with windy conditions for much of the Central U.S. LARGER MAP VIEW
11 Oct Sunday: The much above average temperatures will expand in the Central U.S. with downright hot conditions for this time of year. Middle 80s in Minnesota is a bit of Indian Summer as some areas in the Northern Plains had a frost/freeze last week so this will feel very hot. The cold air in Southeast Canada begins to retreat as Southwest winds take over. Rainfall is almost non existent on Sunday with just some rain showers off the coastal Carolina's. LARGER MAP VIEW
12 Oct Monday (Columbus Day): Temperatures fall some 20 degrees in the Central U.S. but going from 80s and 90s to 60s is still above average for most of the Central U.S. Monday will be the warmest of the weekend days in the Eastern U.S. so hopefully you have the day off. Again, most of the country is dry but again quite windy in the Midwest and Great Lakes. LARGER MAP VIEW
This 14-day chart forecast for Fargo, ND shows how very warm it will be but still above average even after the cold front moves through. But as the sun gets lower and lower in the sky its all down hill from here. :( Sub-freezing temperatures possible the 18th-21st for lows.
Hopefully you don't look like this after a long day of harvesting. :)
