Weather Watch Program Returns Next Week

Next Wednesday, November 15, the CCM Weather Watch Program will return for the 2023/24 frost season and will operate through March 15, 2024. This is one of our most utilized programs and the only service of its kind for the industry. The program operates 25 weather stations between Madera and Kern Counties. Chief Meteorologist Scott Borgioli provides growers with accurate and reliable weather information in twice-daily reports which are available through the CCM website, audio recording, email or text.

In addition to the Valley, the program also services the Desert region with four new weather stations. Growers can also find local forecasts for the Ventura region through the CCM website. Make sure you are signed up to receive Weather Watch notifications by following the directions below.
