The Weather Front On-Line (October 2010)

Temperatures to rebound...

Last week was cool and dry for much of the state, allowing harvest to continue at an exceptionally rapid rate. With harvest progressing, many producers have started fall tillage, fertilizer applications, and wheat seeding.

Corn harvest advanced to 74 percent complete, compared to just 5 percent last year and a five-year average of 31 percent.

Dry, cooler weather ahead for the weekend...

A “cut-off” weather system over the Northeast and a feed of tropical moisture—including the remnants of Tropical Storm Nicole—will maintain wet conditions across New England.

Meanwhile, mostly dry weather will cover the remainder of the U.S. into early next week.
