  • Early spring expected to be warm and dry

    North Carolina will likely experience a warmer-than-normal and drier-than-normal winter and early spring. Heating demand for this winter should be much less than last winter. Unfortunately, recharge of soil moisture, groundwater, streams and reservoirs will probably also be less than normal.

    Climatological winter begins Dec. 1. Climatological spring begins March 1.

    El Niño-Southern Oscillation, or ENSO, ocean-atmosphere patterns have a major impact on North Carolina’s winter and spring climate. 

  • Turf management can be done in February


    Mowing: Mow overseeded bermudagrass at one-inch before the grass gets taller than one and one-half inches. Recycle nutrients by not collecting the clippings unless they accumulate heavily on the surface. Dormant bermudagrass that has not been overseeded need not be mowed.
