December Weather Outlook

Posted by romeethredge on December 4, 2015

We have been very fortunate to have had some dry weather and folks have picked a lot of cotton and combined a lot of soybeans the last couple of weeks. The first 2 weeks of November were tough.

The weather has caused problems for small grains. See my related post, Small grains look bad.

 The latest climate outlook from NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center is out and shows that for the Southeast, December looks like it has a good chance to continue to be wetter and warmer than normal.

Pam Knox, UGA CAES, says, ” Most long-range models show that we are not likely to feel the impacts of Arctic air anytime soon, although a change in January and February is likely.  The wet storm track associated with El Niño will continue to bring storms through the Southeast on a regular basis, although there will be some dry days as well.”

Go to UGA’s Pam Knox’s Climate and Agriculture in the Southeast Site for more information.
