With warmer temperatures, cars lined up Wednesday afternoon at Stop-and-Go car wash. It was reported that 100 vehicles went through the car wash on Wednesday according to the manager. Temperatures are expected to remain in the low to mid 40s through Wednesday.
Having snow on the ground in April is typical, however the amount snow is atypical, University of Minnesota Extension Educator Doug Holen. To determine an estimated time that farmers will get into the field the Extension looks at the amount of snow coverage in a percentage. “We are looking at still having about 85 percent of Fergus Falls having some amount of snow,” he said.
He thinks that for the most part farmers will be on track depending on which crops they plant.
“In a couple of weeks farmers who plant cooler crops such as sugarbeats and small grains are going to feel the pressure to get their crops into the field.”
