Remember Monday? Short sleeves, shorts? a cold front has cut those highs in half and forecasters say the chilly, unseasonable weather may be sticking around. Meteorologist Dennis Todey, director of the U-S-D-A’s Midwest Climate Hub, based in Ames, says there’s no warm-up in sight.
Todey says it doesn’t look like much precipitation is coming with the cold, which will benefit some farmers in the short-term.
He adds long-range trends show both temperatures and precipitation staying below-normal for the next month or so.
