If you are interested in reading about the weather and agriculture of the Great Plains, you might want to check out this new blog by Albert  Sutherland.  His first post is a story about a new climate tool which shows trends in temperature and precipitation over time, similar to the NCDC “Climate at a Glance” tool I’ve discussed earlier.  Al was a speaker for two climate sessions at NACAA this week.  The blog is located at https://blog.mesonet.org/agriculture/.
