Climate update webinar to share projections for spring

News release
31 August 2020

The winter months have had below average rain fall in the Limestone Coast, and with cold starts and frosty mornings, land managers may be starting to question what spring will bring.

Spring forecasts are now available, and Seasonal Risk Agronomist with Agriculture Victoria, Dale Grey is hosting a Limestone Coast Climate Update webinar to share this information with locals.

Limestone Coast Landscape Board Regional Agriculture Landcare Facilitator Skylea McLean said the spring update will provide important insights assisting on farm decision making as we enter warmer months.

“Utilising forecasting information can assist land managers in managing risks associated with our variable climate,” Skylea said.

“Increasing resilience to climate can help industry across the region to maintain productive and thriving farm businesses and communities.”

Dale provides agronomy, climate and weather analysis for farmers, agribusiness, government and the media across South East Australia.

The free 1 hour webinar will cover rainfall and temperature predictions for spring, likelihood of unseasonal rain, frost and heat events, and a soil moisture update.

“This localised webinar is not one to miss,” Skylea said.

“We encourage land managers to join, hear from Dale, and consider the updates and information to build resilience in their business.”

The Limestone Coast Climate Update webinar will be held on Tuesday 15 September at 12:30pm. Registrations are essential via Eventbrite.
