South Dakota State Climatologist Dennis Todey speaks Thursday during Dakotafest, updating farmers and ranchers on current weather and climate matters. Along with South Dakota State University Extension Climate Field Specialist Laura Edwards, Todey said “non-warm conditions” will continue for the coming months, while a predicted El Nino is still likely but will be weaker than normal. He said that even though the U.S. Drought Monitor expects parts of central South Dakota to stay in a moderate drought because the fall season is typically dry, Todey predicts conditions will still improve.
