It’s locked dude. It’s over. Multiple rounds coming next two weeks. Maybe someone gets only 1-2” through day 10.....but the pattern is a huge change.  A trough to our west with multiple s/w’s in the flow with big PWATs is all you need to see. However even the on camera guys were shook by Stein. Disappointing to see.

Cranberry harvest this year FTL.

Less than 0.75” for most, right?

I’m sure someone in the east will get like .25” round one and complain. Maybe Tblizz.

Yeah heard something about that. Sucks.

Between some growers not being able to frost protect their crop and the added costs of having to bring in equipment to pump water so they can harvest, it’s not been a good year.

Stein was harsh this year. Those webbed hands just smacking around the poor farmers left and right.

That’s unfortunate.    It is a much smaller industry in Mass than it used to be but that stinks for those farmers. 
 

edit.  As per this (month old) article, production might actually be up this year by 1%. https://www.bizjournals.com/boston/news/2020/08/21/ma-drought-expected-to-leave-cranberry-growers.amp.html

Just a weird combo of an early cold snap and dry weather. It screwed up the foliage timing and other things like the cranberry harvest it seems.

? 65 dewpoint. I guess being on the coast it's an issue.  I am saving the electricity cost, no need.

Love the fact Miller Bs are in the long range. Wet pattern now.

Locking this in. If you’re right with forecasts of tons of inches.. this’ll all be green in 1 week

Maine's blueberry harvest took a hit also, especially for those fields without irrigation. In addition labor was scarce, as many growers downeast depend on First Nation folks from the Maritimes but COVID-19 made the border crossing nearly impossible for those folks.
