The Arizona/California desert growing region is experiencing high winds with gusts ranging from 40-50 mph. Daytime highs are 10 degrees below normal and will stay that way through Saturday, November 19. Light-to-moderate lettuce ice is expected over the next several days as morning lows dip into the mid-30°s to low 40°s.

Potential challenges for lettuce and tender leaf items resulting from the high winds and cold temperatures include:

  • Elevated dirt/mud in commodity and lightly processed items
  • Epidermal blistering and peeling
  • Increased wind damage
  • Prolonged low case weights due to slowed plant growth and dehydration
