North Central ND (09/10/20)

Information from the North Central region of North Dakota

A relatively calm weather pattern has been in place over the past few weeks. Here are some of the posted weather reports from the past week for north central North Dakota (starting August 31st): Minot: 0.06”; Bottineau: 0.16”; Garrison: NA; Karlsruhe: 0.05”; Mohall: 0.11”; Plaza: NA; and Rugby: 0.07”. Bare soil temperature at the NCREC was observed at 61°F as of September 8th. As we look forward into the upcoming week, the forecast appears to be calm with a slight chance of rain come Friday. Breezy conditions appear to be part of the forecast. 

Harvest continues to roll along in the region. Small grain and pulse harvest is nearly complete. Canola has been swathed at several locations in the region while soybean and dry bean begin to dry down at some local field sites. Freezing overnight temperatures occurred earlier this week across parts of the state.
