An agricultural meteorologist says the weather situation in South America is getting serious.
Drew Lerner with World Weather Incorporated says relief from the dry conditions aren’t expected anytime soon in Brazil.
“Looking at the end of the two week forecast maps, I started seeing some subtle hints the monsoon season might evolve. That’s December 1.”
Lerner says the upcoming rains won’t be well distributed until that time, which means farmers might plant a different crop instead of soybeans.
