The potential of El Nino conditions during spring to be highlighted at farm show

January 11, 2019

NORFOLK - El Nino conditions through next spring will be highlighted during the 32nd annual Northeast Nebraska Farm and Equipment Show next week.

UNL State Climatologist Al Dutcher says he does expect to see El Nino conditions.

“The kind of conditions that we went in to the winter we might see that come back to haunt us as we go into the late winter and early spring. The other thing we’re paying attention to is because of a split flow pattern if we don’t see the northern jet reestablish itself as a dominant jet stream, then the most likely pattern is we’ll see a much earlier dormancy break ans much earlier spring. I would look at April as a key indicator as to whether or not we’re going to see the El Nino conditions persist into the summer.”

The session is set for 10 a.m. Thursday, January 17th.

The 32nd annual Northeast Nebraska Farm and Equipment Show is set for next Wednesday and Thursday at the Chuck Pohlman Ag Complex on the campus of Northeast Community College.
