  • USDA SBR forecast, issued 5/12: For 5/13-5/14 -- The low that provided plentiful rainfall over the past several days will move away from the Atlantic coast, leaving high pressure in its wake. FL will experience winds from the east with little chance of rain for Tue. and Wed. A new low, however, will develop over the Rockies and move into TX where it will provide rain to eastern TX, AR, MO, LA and MS.
    Risk Area: A risk of spore transport, deposition, and survival will exist around the infected site in Texas. Because Florida will remain mostly sunny, no deposition is expected.
