UPDATE FROM OUR FARMS IN SANTA MARIA, CA & OXNARD, CA:
RAINS TO CONTINUE THROUGH TUESDAY
A cold and unstable air mass moved in Monday afternoon with rain showers and hunderstorms. Thunderstorms can produce strong down burst, periods of heavy rain, hail and lightning.
An upper-level trough will follow today (Tuesday) with more rain showers.
High pressure is then expected to build back into the region Wednesday and should produce night and morning Santa Lucia (offshore) winds and dry weather through next Sunday.
Items heavily affected so far - Romaine and Baby Arugula. Both items will be tight this week. Chefs - let me know qty's you'll need for the end of the week on the Arugula, and I will work to keep enough in house.
Mangos are getting further into their season, so we should start to see the Ataulfos and Tommy Atkins in the next few week...
