Yesterday in this blog, I mentioned at the moment it doesn’t look like a very early freeze will occur this year like we recorded in early September 2020. Looking at the past, such an early freeze is historically unusual, so just playing the odds would favor not recording a freeze as early as the region experienced last year. Plus, another factor in our favor has been the recent rain, plus the rain in the forecast. Last year, although the Red River Valley recorded quite a bit of rain in July and early August, the region overall was dry and drier soils can help lower the air temperatures at night. It only takes one night, but for now, things look more promising than last year.
