The Arizona/California desert region has avoided significantly low temperatures and icy conditions so far this season, but a dry cold front is moving into the area late today, threatening to change that. Cool winds with gusts up to 30 mph are expected Saturday, December 9. Once they subside, we can expect to see morning temperatures dip into the low to mid-30s with light-to-moderate lettuce ice possible Sunday, December 10 through Thursday, December 14.
Production and loading delays may occur for desert row crop commodities and value-added items over the next several days. Markon inspectors are monitoring conditions and will update further as needed.
