Stormy weather

Ok.
That's it! I've had enough of the odd weather this year.

I snapped the pic today right after the rain had stopped, the ground doesn't look too wet, but it was damp.

What's the problem then?
Humidity? Heat? Not enough wind?
All of the above...


The clouds broke, and when the sun hit the ground it felt like the humidity hit 110%. The afternoon temp probably only spiked at 75 °F, but seemed more like 85. Wind? Not really any to speak about...

Prime conditions for mold. Expect to see lots of growers spraying sulfur in the next two to three days.
Will it have an adverse affect on the harvest to be?
Well, it can't be good, but the jury's still out...

Where's your vineyard? My vineyard is outside of San Miguel which is outside of Paso Robles. Reason I ask is, I'm getting the same odd weather.

Jason,

The weather fot the entire state has been 'odd' this year.
