  • Melon Alert - October 15, 2014
    Cantaloupe and Honeydew supplies have dropped to extremely low levels and will continue to struggle for the next 12 to 15 days. Melon quality has also been affected as a result of a series of storms that hit the desert growing regions in September along with tropical storm Simon last week. The storms left standing water in the fields which led to quality issues on the fruit that was about to be harvested.

  • Product Alert: Value Added Romaine - October 9, 2014
    Romaine supplies have tightened as the Salinas season comes to an end as we await the transition to Yuma. Suppliers are seeing a darker green, leafier romaine plant and high core. The heads are a bit loose and open and not cupping to form a heart.

    Temperatures warm slightly across Central California with 70s to low 80s today ahead of an approaching cold front. This system arriving Friday looks to bring much needed rain to much of Central California into early Saturday. Temperatures in the upcoming desert regions will cool to the mid 70s over the weekend with strong winds (50mph) as these systems pass well to the north.

    Temperatures warm slightly across Central California (70s to low 80s) over the next couple of days ahead of an approaching cold front. This system arriving Friday looks to take a similar northern track of the previous storms bringing a chance of rain to the Salinas valley into the weekend. Temperatures in the upcoming desert regions will remain a bit above seasonal norms (90s) as these systems pass well to the north.

    Temperatures cool slightly across Central California as an approaching cold front brings gusty winds and a slight chance of rain over the next couple of days. Another cold front arriving Saturday looks to take a similar northern track with just a slight chance of rain into the weekend. Temperatures in the upcoming desert regions will remain near seasonal norms (low 90s) with gusty winds (20-30mph) as these systems pass well to the north.

    A couple of weak Pacific storm systems are set to roll into Northern California this week with rains, strong winds and cooler temperatures. The brunt of moisture from these systems will remain to the North however a strong wind event (gusts 40+mph) is expected to impact most of California and the desert regions as these systems roll through. The overall weather pattern out west this summer and early fall has been problematic for growers to say the least.

  • The Source 10-08-14 - October 8, 2014
    Temperatures moderate to near normal in Central California as low pressure returns over the next couple of days. High pressure returns with substantial warming over the weekend into early next week. Remnant moisture from tropical depression Simon will bring strong winds, substantial rainfall and thunderstorms to the Southwestern desert regions mid-week with isolated heavy rains possible.
  • The Outlook - October 6, 2014
    A few record high temperatures were reached over the weekend in Central California as the high pressure ridge exits the region today. Hot temperatures today will moderate to near normal through the week. These very warm late season temperatures will not help crops throughout the region. Leaf, lettuce and mix vegetable fields already weeks ahead of schedule will once again deal with increased growth rates and heat damage in these stands.

    A few record high temperatures were reached over the weekend along the Central Coast as the high pressure ridge exits today. Temperatures moderate through the week with 70s near the coast to low 90s in the inland regions. Another strong high pressure ridge builds late this week pushing max temperatures back into record high territory over the weekend into early next week. We continue to track the latest Tropical storm, Simon, off the Baja coast that reached hurricane status over the weekend. While rapidly weakening, Simon remains a major concern for Northern Baja/Mexico over the next few days.
  • The Source - October 1, 2014
    A strong high pressure ridge builds out west with very warm temperatures expected into next week. While record highs will not be reached temperatures 10-15 degrees above norms are expected. Upper 80s to possible 90s at the coast, along with triple digit temperatures in the inland regions are expected. This will not help growth patterns in upcoming regions and late season product in the Salinas Valley will also be impacted.
