Gary England Sees No Systems Coming in the Next Two Weeks Bringing Frigid Weather to Oklahoma

Thu, 05 Apr 2012 15:42:50 CDT

Gary England Sees No Systems Coming in the Next Two Weeks Bringing Frigid Weather to Oklahoma What are the chances of a late season freeze causing damage to the 2012 Winter Wheat Crop across the Southern Plains? With the crop two to three weeks ahead of normal development- there has been a lot of talk about what happens if we get a mid April 2012 freeze event? (Pictured here is wheat damaged from freezing conditions back in 2009)


Well, we decided to talk to veteran meterologist Gary England of KWTV, News9 about the prospects. England says that looking about as far out as you can- early indications show no cold weather events for a sustained amount of time below 32 degrees for the next 16 days or so. He cautions that the further out you go- the less reliable is the data you have to consider- but he says there is a chance we could dodge the bullet of an economically devastating freeze across Oklahoma this month.


We also talked with Gary about the chances of having a hot summer this coming July and August because of a warm March. He tells us there is no relationship between the early spring conditions- and those we will face in mid summer.
