John Brennan John, United States, Mike Adams discussed on Adams on Agriculture


And ranch news from around the world information. America's farmers and ranchers need to know on a now back to mike adams all right. Let's talk weather with meteorologist. John brennan john. We've talked pretty much all summer about these locked in weather patterns and not much change in them. Do you see any change anytime soon. Yeah we're actually going through one Now we an honestly. We did Last week so we saw Some pretty good rainfall across a lot of good Firm for much of the eastern corn belt last week and that was actually due to the ridge breakdown in the west and allowing some troughs to move into the central portions of the of canada. And the us this week that ridges breaking back down. And we're seeing them more towards the west so We will get Better chances for rainfall and actually across the western corn belt coming up here okay so those were an isolated incidents an actual breaking down of these ridges that we've seen that kind of held everything in place for so long. We're actually seeing those systems breakdown. Now yes so th the ridge that has been so strong. All summer is now week. It's still there and sit. But it's more pulsing than than it's stiff You know what it's been through for much of the summer. It's not very strong anymore. So it's allowing a lot of these troughs that have been kind of going over the top of it across northern canada. To get back down into the western. Us now so that's a good sign for active weather across the us over the next couple of weeks. At least yeah. A lot of it won't help crops this year. They've already been damaged. But it's much needed rainfall starting to get into some areas. How widespread you see this rainfall. it's going to be widespread over the northern plains for sure and that's going to start really here When we get to thursday and more likely friday and saturday first system that moves through There's a lot of heat and humidity out there in the northern plains right now and temperatures are near one hundred degrees. That's not going to change until the system moves through and so there's a lot of moisture and heat for this System to work with produce good thunderstorm activity There's it's thunderstorms so inevitably. There's going to be some spots that get missed but it looks very close to as wine spreads you can get for for Rent thunderstorm clusters moving across the northern plains. And that's just the first system to we have two more following rate in its wake One's kind of sunday into monday timeframe and another coming through in early to mid next week. That should help. Fill some of those gaps across the northern plains systems. Move into the the kind of east of the mississippi river. They're gonna lose their their punch a little bit. So we're not gonna see much widespread precipitation across the eastern corn belt but The western corner bell will really be happy about getting some more rainfall fisher mentioned temperatures. And as you said very hot as some places but other parts of the midwest Seen cooler than normal august temperatures so far a little bit yeah The systems that kind of move through last week Outside of the hot and humid temperatures chronic across the southern half of the The midwest they're on but Over the north area especially wisconsin michigan some portions of illinois and indiana ohio as well have really seen time just kind of rate at or just a little bit below normal And we're not going to see much change in that we'll see some better temperatures coming up here especially as we get into the weekend ahead of that system and through but We'll come right back down again. So temperatures. Really kind of moderate through through august is wall. Docu the detail meteorologist. John barack so john let's talk about through fall through august into september. I mean these changes in the ridges that you talked about exist setting up a a change for fall weather as well Probably not our forecast right now. is for hot or not necessarily hot but above normal temperatures. All the way through the fall across much of the country Now that's predicated on a lot of model output and We're going through a change in in In the line nina pattern so last Winter we were in la nina. Strong line union. We came back up. It's neutral category. That's where we're at right now. But we're headed back towards another line media and as we move that way we may see some changes in In our pattern a little bit more frequently than models are kind of suggesting so while we do expect some above normal temperatures throughout the fall. Probably some variable precipitation in a variable pattern with that so we may see some Variable temperatures where we get Really hot stretches and some Rather cool stretches as well. We're going la nina to anaemia nascar. Act we did that again in twenty eleven and thousand twelve so if you can remember those crop years. We're kinda doing the same same bouncing. That's not atypical I think. I don't know maybe exact statistics i think about. Seventy percents of lanya near years are followed by a second la nina so a second line union after after another one is not uncommon at all. We've got some tropical storm activity as does that send moisture very far inward or is that pretty much on the coast and that depends on how far into the gulf of mexico. They can get Really what we're looking at now. Is you know. Fred came in and that Into the east coast and that'll be moving through the east coast not spreading whole lot of precipitation or moisture westward Grace which is expected to go through. The gulf of mexico is expected to go through the southern gulf mexico and actually emerging in the pacific. So that won't be helping out any moisture and the the other one henry out there near the muda should be kinda stuck in the atlantic so that won't actually move into Into the us at all Any additional storms. That kind of developed here over the course of the fall will be kinda battling The changing weather pattern and it's gonna kind of really depend on where the highs and lows the upper level highs and those are at the time so typically in what our long range forecasters are calling for others. is more of a trough over the eastern. Us kinda tends to deflect those storms away from the us and maybe if it's a it's a it's a landfall. It'll be brief along the east coast and kind of work. Its way outward. But it tends to deflect off to the east and kind of thing like take a grace path where it goes through the southern gulf of mexico and doesn't really bring a whole lot.

Coming up next
