Wet spring expected

If there was a silver lining in Timm Uhlmann’s presentation to members of Peninsula Pride Farms last week at their annual meeting, it is that the weather cannot possibly be as bad as it has been.  The producer watershed group brought in Uhlmann from the National Weather Service to discuss what farmers can expect in 2020 as they try to operate on wet fields. Door and Kewaunee Counties received close to 49 inches of precipitation in 2019, which is about 19 inches over what is considered normal. Uhlmann says the last two years have been anomalies that he does not expect will continue in 2020. He still believes spring will be wetter than average and that flooding will be a concern.

Uhlmann added the area is on an upward trend in both precipitation and temperature, which is also contributing to a longer growing season.
