BSK....I didnt know you used forecasting tools. Do you have a pretty good or better (let say 2 to 5 day) forecast than others ?


I use the same computer models the NOAA forecasters use, but I may interpret them differently. Accuweather and the Weather Channel have their own in-house computer models, but they have proven to be not as accurate as the NOAA models.

I use the WRF model for 3 1/2-day forecasts and the GFS model for 10-day forecasts.

Models still indicate an increased chance of precip next Sunday through Tuesday.

The pastures--even the bottomland ones--look terrible in my area too. My lawn is burnt brown.

However, I've been amazed at how well the native weed species deer relly on at this time of year are doing, such as ragweed, desmodium and polk.

I was amazed at some of the native forb patches I observed yesterday evening --- there were still some very lush ones on the north sides of every ridge line.

Also, while 100% of the ridge-top food plots were dead, I still had a few very lush bottomland clover patches -- of course the deer seemed more interested in the ragweed. (I think we've had a tad more rain this summer to the north of you.)

I walked around quite a bit, visited one spring that's the closest water to many ridge-running deer ---- it was still providing a beautiful fresh water supply --- and there were no dead deer near it. Was worried I'd find a lot of dead dear this weekend, but didn't find a one.

Google "weather models."

My personal favorite model site is:

Hey BSK,

We had another nice shower this afternoon in Stewart County!
At least enough to settle the dust! ;\)
