Cold Autumn

To use Fargo as an example, this past autumn, September through November was the 12th coldest on record.  Meaning, it was not your imagination that it has been cold, even by our standards for the past several weeks.  The cold in turn enhanced the lack of evaporation potential this autumn.  It felt wet, and there were definitely some locations with above average rain and snow lately, but much of the area was near average, but with it being so cold,there was little evaporation which greatly hindered the ability to get the harvest completed in a timely manner. Although trending cooler today, it will warm up this weekend, but the warm up will likely come with more clouds.
