A Change?

I had a conversation this past weekend with a farmer asking if I see any changes coming yet this summer.  At the moment, I really do not.  There will more than likely be some pockets of good rains in the coming weeks, there has been in the past few weeks, but to turn this summer around like what happened in some locations last year just doesn’t seem to be in the cards the near future.  Last year after an extremely dry May and June, many some areas even drier than this year, the Red River Valley and western Minnesota recorded quite a bit of rain in June into early August.  No one know the future, so anything is possible, but having that occur in a broad area, seems unlikely.
