World Weather Incorporated Senior Ag Meteorologist Drew Lerner’s spring and summer weather outlook features more moisture for the Northern Plains. “When we get into spring, there will be warmer air, but I’m concerned we’ll have shots of cold coming, too. We’ll bounce around a bit. It may not warm up as much as we want. With temperatures bouncing around, we should be able to generate moisture. There will likely be near to above average precipitation around the Canadian border from Montana to Minnesota.” Southwestern South Dakota is expected to remain dry in the spring. The summer outlook is warmer and drier. “There will still be moisture deficits, especially July and August. There seems to be a high correlation for a drier August across the Northern Plains.”
