World Weather Incorporated Senior Agricultural Meteorologist Drew Lerner is glad to see winter starting off with moisture for the Northern Plains. “I’m encouraged with what’s been happening in the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest because it fits well with our preliminary outlook for the spring,” says Lerner. “It seems like the biggest area to see expanding drought in the spring will happen in the central U.S. plains, not the Dakotas and Minnesota. We’ll still be vulnerable to dry down, but with the precipitation we’ve received this autumn and perhaps what we could get this winter, we’ll start things off well.”
