Dry land and fieldA largely dry weather pattern is likely to be a main feature of the weather for the High Plains and western Corn Belt heading into winter, and it’s likely to persist through early next spring, a National Drought Mitigation Center climatologist said this week. It could mean a rough start to next spring’s growing season, especially in areas where insufficient precipitation through at least the latter half of 2020 has trimmed soil moisture levels. Watch the U.S. Drought Monitor and tracking for winter weather systems to see how dry conditions are evolving through the season. See and hear more here.
