Also at the show, Candice King, chief meteorologist with WTVO-TV in Rockford, discussed how weather affects agriculture.
Going through the series of slideshows that demonstrated weather patterns, King
provided public with a glimpse into this years atmospheric conditions.
said statewide, precipitation was at 1.9 inches a month, or 8 tenths of an inch below normal last December, while the average temperature was 33.4 degrees, which is 2.5 degrees above normal.
wasnt able to predict the exact amount of precipitation for the upcoming months, she
said theres going to be a lot of variability.
I dont think going into the spring and summertime its going to be as cool as what this past summer was, she
said, but I dont think we are going to see a whole lot of rain, either.
