UPDATE: Salinas, California Weather Outlook

Central California growing regions continue to experience unseasonably high temperatures. Warmer-than-normal weather will persist through the weekend. By Tuesday, June 27, a slight cool down is expected, but temperatures will remain elevated.
Markon First Crop Premium Green Leaf, Iceberg, Romaine, and Strawberries are sporadic; Markon Best Available will be substituted as needed
Higher temperatures will promote crop growth, but can also create heat-related quality challenges and shelf-life issues in lettuces, leafy greens, and strawberries
Expect more burn, dehydration, growth cracks, and sunscalding
Harvesting crews will start as early as possible to avoid peak temperatures
