After an October, in which most farms got more rain than usual, NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center is continuing that trend for November across the Columbia Basin. AND WITH ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES IT DOES LOOK LIKE THE BULK OF THIS PRECIPITATION SHOULD BE RAIN. MOST FARMS ARE ON TAP TO GET AT LEAST AN INCH OF RAIN DURING THE MONTH, BUT AREAS FROM DAYTON, SOUTH TO WALLA WALLA AND WESTON WILL LIKELY GET OVER 2 INCHES. SO FIELD WORK OPPORTUNITIES WILL LIKELY DECREASE SIGNIFICANTLY AS WE GO THROUGH THE MONTH. WITH THE STORM TRACK REMAINING RATHER ACTIVE, IT DOES APPEAR THE DEVELOPMENT OF FOG SHOULD BE LIMITED. SO FAR THIS FALL, WE HAVE NOT SEEN MUCH IN THE WAY OF WIND, BUT THAT IS LIKELY TO CHANGE STARTING TODAY AS A COLD FRONT WILL BRING WIND GUSTS OVER 40 MPH, AND IT’S QUITE POSSIBLE TODAY WON’T BE THE ONLY WIND EVENT FOR NOVEMBER. AS YOU KNOW, SUNDAY MORNING IS THE RETURN TO PACIFIC STANDARD TIME. BUT DID YOU KNOW THAT EVEN THOUGH THE SHORTEST DAYS ARE IN DECEMBER, TOMORROW MORNING IN THE SOUTHERN HALF OF THE COLUMBIA BASIN WILL ACTUALLY BE THE LATEST SUNRISE FOR THIS YEAR ACCORDING TO THE DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME CLOCK. ALSO, A BIT A TRIVIA, FOR ONE HOUR SUNDAY MORNING, PARTS OF OREGON AND FLORIDA WILL HAVE THE SAME CLOCK TIME.
