'What a spring': Lingering moisture seen dragging down fieldwork progress
It's been a wet, cool spring in much of the nation's midsection, and these conditions are likely to persist into early summer, according to Charlie Notis, meteorologist with Freese-Notis Weather, Inc.
But, there's good news on the horizon: Some earlier projections indicated chances are good for a drought this summer. Notis says signs are now pointing to lessened drought chances. Once Mother Nature allows spring planting to wrap up, Notis says he's "pretty optimistic" about summer crop weather conditions.
