The real punch of El Nino starts to hone in, albeit a few months later than forecast
A Brief touch on the weather will likely guide you on the upcoming markets. Temperature anomalies have continued across southern California into Arizona, and coastal Mexico all week with highs and lows hitting April-like values. That will change this week, with temperatures dropping closer to normal as the real punch of El Nino starts to hone in, albeit a few months later than forecast. Coastal California is expecting copious rains, which will slow down the small amount of harvesting going on with greens, but will definitely impact all strawberry production, although it has been well below average for several weeks and just hit stride the last few days.
