Forecasters Predict Dry Spring, Normal Summer for Indiana

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WOWO): It looks like 2015 is going to be a good year for Hoosier farmers, or at the very least, it is going to start out that way. That‘s because forecasters say Indiana is likely going to see a weak El Niño come late winter and early spring.

Meteorologist David Miskus monitors droughts for the National Weather Service.  He says a weak El Niño means dry weather during that time frame and then back to normal come summer months.

He says that while a dry spring may not sound appealing to farmers its only a problem if the state is coming off a drought, which its not.

He referred to 2014 as fairly “uneventful” for Indiana, meaning there were a few dry spells but things rebounded quickly. As of now there are no models suggesting Indiana is anticipating any more or less precipitation than normal for those summer months.
