After a cold start to this week, with freezing conditions down into central Georgia and Alabama, a pattern shift is expected to bring warmer conditions back to the region for the next few weeks. This will allow farmers to take advantage of warmer soil temperatures to get corn and other crops into the ground in southern AL and GA and coastal areas of the Carolinas later this week, although Virginia and northern North Carolina as well as mountainous areas may continue to see occasional freezing weather, especially in the last few days of March. There will be plenty of dry days to get fieldwork done, but 1-2 inches of rain is expected through early April across the region so showers will help replenish soil moisture.
