Central Florida Weather Watch is gearing up for the 2012-13 season. Considering that the AgroClimate forecast for the next three months is for a “Neutral” Climate Phase and that the majority of catastrophic freeze events in Florida since the late 1800 have occurred on “Neutral” climate phase, it may be worth participating in this program. The program provides in depth forecasts from a retired NWS Meteorologist of approaching cold air masses and their probability to reach critical temperatures that could harm crops being produced in the region. Updates related to forecasts are distributed on a restricted telephone connection and e-mail alerts.
Normal registration ends Friday, November 16, 2012 coinciding with the first Weekly Outlook of the season. Registrations received after November 16 are billed at a higher rate. Follow the link below for a registration form:
