Kentucky Agricultural Situation Report (AgSitRep):

Agricultural Situation Report: November 23, 2015
(USDA's Crop Report with comments from Tom Priddy & Matt Dixon, UK Ag. Weather)

Agricultural News: Kentucky experienced above normal temperatures and precipitation 
over the past week. Precipitation for the week totaled 1.68 inches, 0.70 inches above 
normal. Temperatures averaged 49 degrees for the week, 3 degrees above normal. 
Topsoil moisture was rated 2 percent very short, 10 percent short, 75 percent 
adequate and 13 percent surplus. Subsoil moisture was rated 1 percent very short, 14 
percent short, 77 percent adequate, and 8 percent surplus. Days suitable for 
fieldwork averaged 4.1 out of a possible seven. Grain harvest is winding down with 
unharvested corn and soybean fields in need of dry conditions or frozen ground to 
allow combines to get back in fields. Tobacco stripping is progressing well with some 
reports of fat stems. Pastures are holding steady at mostly good to fair condition. 

A couple cold fronts this past week led to above normal precipitation for much of the 
Bluegrass State, in addition to some of the coldest temperatures of the fall season. 
After some light rain to start the week, a plume of moisture ahead of a cold front on 
Wednesday led to widespread light to moderate rainfall across the area. This plume 
slowly shifted east through the day with totals ranging between 1 and 2 inches for 
much of Kentucky. After a brief period of dry conditions to end the work week, 
another cold front pushed through the area on Saturday. This boundary once again 
sparked scattered to numerous showers across the Bluegrass State. While totals were 
not as significant, this system sent temperatures plummeting and led to the first 
snow showers of the season for some areas. Lows on Saturday night dipped into the 
20s, while highs on Sunday did not get out of the 30s.
