What a weather year so far!

What a weather year so far!

 

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:  A desert is a landscape or region that receives an extremely low amount of precipitation, less than enough to support growth of most plants. Deserts are defined as areas with an average annual precipitation of less than 250 millimetres (10 in) per year

This is interesting information.  This came from one of the slides in my report for the Oklahoma Wheat Tour at the Oklahoma Grain and Feed Assn. meeting.

Weather data from Grant Co. and Garfield Co. Mesonet sites

Medford

6.59 inches Sept. through April
Prorated: that would be the equivalent of 9.8 inches annual rainfall (or in other words,....... a desert)
Feb. 10th  (-)27 Degrees
April 5th 31 Degrees
April 9th 90 Degrees
117 degree swing in 58 days

Breckenridge

9.39 inches Sept. through April
Prorated: that would be the equivalent of 14.07 inches annual rainfall
Feb. 10th  (-)23 Degrees
Feb. 17th 80 Degrees
103 degree swing in a week!
April 5th 28 Degrees

Wheat is an amazing plant to even do what it has done.

When the reports were all in it is predicted Oklahoma will raise approximately a little over half of the bushels of wheat it raised last year.
