Bruce Rohwer of Paullina and ICGA president has received snow every week of April so far. About two inches of snow fell Tuesday night in his area of northern Iowa.
“At least we didn’t receive the four inches of snow that were predicted yesterday,” Rohwer says. “We can still use the moisture and precipitation in this area but warmer days would be welcomed. Soil temperatures are a concern as they are still in the 30s and 40s. We’re hoping the forecast for warmer days this week will help our soil temperatures.”
The high temperature on Wednesday was only 37 degrees in his area.
“It’s pretty sloppy here but we’re expecting 70 degrees by the weekend,” he says. “We hope that the change from April to May will mean a change in temperatures too.”
