Memorial Day Forecast Looks Dry


(Undated) – The forecast for this Memorial Day weekend looks sunny and dry. Illinois State Climatologist, Trent Ford, says May looks to finish dry and we can expect above-normal temperatures for June. Ford says the latest Climate Prediction Center models show above-normal temperatures for June, but “equal chances” of above-normal and below-normal precipitation. He says while it may be too early to say “drought” it is something area growers will want to keep an eye on.
