March has arrived, and for most of us, March signals the start of spring.
Bryce Anderson is chief meteorologist with DTN says he agrees. Some spring like weather is on the way for most of the month of March.
Anderson says Midwest weather patterns in recent decades have trended toward warmer, wetter springs and dryer summers. And that is exactly what he is expecting this year.
The good news is that wetter springs tend to build up up soil moisture supplies, helping thirsty crops get though any short dry spells in the midst of the growing season.
