This has helped with the crops in parts of the state. Many parts of the Cen- tral Plains and Southwest U.S. are still very much in a drought situa- tion, however. I know, talking to a farmer friend of mine at church, he told me that the warm early spring allowed him to plant his wheat crop early. Coupled with the ade- quate rainfall amounts early in the season, he really had a nice yield of wheat this year. If he hadn't been able to plant so early, the heat and lack of rainfall later in the sea- son would have gotten most of his crop. Farming sure is a gamble and a situation of getting just the right amount of warmth and rain- fall "just when you need it...." The week started off hot and humid once again, but now we are in store for some cooler conditions! It looks like cooler conditions will settle in for much of the weekend. Highs will feel nice and comfort- able for a change, with highs over the weekend generally in the mid 70s! Lows overnight could actually. drop into the 50s at times. We might actually be able to spend some time outdoors and not work up a sweat for a change! " In case you haven't noticed, the days are getting much shorter. We are losing nearly three minutes of daylight each and every day! As a result, we are losing over 20 min- utes of daylight a week now! Have a great weekend! Weather history: This week in weather history back in 1971, a cool spell moved across Minne- sota. Temperatures were chilly as frost was reported in northern Minnesota and freezing tempera- tures reported as far south as Pipe- stone. Weather fact: Frost is ice that is formed by the "condensation of amaospheric water vapor on a sur- face when the temperature of the surface is below 32F (0C). " In the formation of frost, a gas (water vapor) is changed directly to a solid. MN ATA GLANCE: Moorhead Low 69 High 90 Duluth Low 67 High 87 Central Minn.
