Martin’s forecast calls for a wide-open harvest window for the next 10 days and potentially longer.

“To me, it looks like we have one threat of moisture across the Hoosier state between now and the end of next week. That comes overnight next Wednesday night into Thursday. The threat is minor… Other than that, we have no major weather issues in terms of precipitation.”

Temperatures will be normal to slightly above normal with 60s and 70s as we flip the calendar to October. Martin says, “I think we have excellent evaporation potential here, and decent breezes over the course of the next week to 10 days.”

And Martin’s extended forecast looks favorable too.

“After another front tries to pass through Michigan and the Great Lakes at the end of the 10-day forecast window this upcoming weekend, I think it does leave the door open to the week of the 10th being almost completely dry as well. So, this good harvest weather window could continue well into the month of October.”
