Wells Fargo Indiana Weather Forecast 4/18/2014

RobWasson-300x252

Good drying conditions come in this weekend with daytime highs in the 60s to lower 70s on Saturday and in the mid 70s on Sunday.  Another weak weather system will bring in light showers Monday night and Tuesday next week.  A better chance of rain and storms will come in on Thursday and Friday.  With limited field work so far this season, farmers are looking for a nice stretch of dry days.  Slightly below normal rainfall and above normal temperatures are expected in the two week forecast.  This will be ideal if it holds true and allow farmers to roll through their fields.  Soil moisture is rated over most of Indiana as abnormally moist to wet.  Soil temperatures by the weekend will warm into the middle 50s.
