Harvest Weather

Although this month may not have been as perfect as the past two years for harvesting, it certainly has still been better than many.  The main problem this year was the rain even on October 4 and 5 that brought 1”+ rains to parts of the southern Red River Valley and west central Minnesota as well as in portions of northwestern North Dakota.  Otherwise, the month has certainly recorded some rainfall, but below average for the time of year and with temperatures near or above average across at least eastern North Dakota into western Minnesota, the month has been pretty good.  At the moment the next threat of significant rain looks to be holding off until next week.
