The Enbridge Line 5 oil pipeline running through Northern Wisconsin is an important conduit to getting fuel to refineries across the Upper Midwest and Canada. It transports about 23 million gallons of crude oil and natural gas liquid per day. That energy goes to heat homes and fuel vehicles. Today, Enbridge is undergoing the process to relocate the pipeline to go around the Bad River Reservation. It currently goes through the reservation for about 13 miles. The project update comes from Paul Meneghini, the manager of community engagement with Enbridge. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
CHS is the largest cooperative in America, owned by nearly 600,000 farmers and ranchers and headquartered in the Upper Midwest. Will Stafford is the Washington Representative for CHS. He lists off CHS' policy agenda and other lines Congress will likely add in the 2023 Farm Bill. He says while he has his hands full getting new members of Congress up to speed on ag policy, there is excitement surrounding this 2023 Farm Bill. His final message to Wisconsin farmers: each Congress has fewer folks with farm background, so reach out to your legislators and be a resource. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
HARLINGEN, Texas - The Rio Grande Valley can attract thousands more Winter Texans from the Upper Midwest thanks to the daily flights Delta Air Lines is putting on from Minneapolis to Harlingen.This is the view of Nicolás J. Mirman, director of air service and business development at Valley International Airport. “Via Minneapolis, Delta has connections to more than 35 Upper Midwest and Canadian destinations. It will be the first time in a long time that places like North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, even Toronto in Canada have such easy access to our beach at South Padre Island.”Delta will be utilizing an a320 Airbus that carries about 165 passengers to fly from Minneapolis to Valley International Airport seven days a week from mid-February to the end of May. This presents a great opportunity to attract more tourists from the Upper Midwest, Mirman said.But, there is a challenge for the Valley, the commercial aviation expert said. Sun Country also flies from Minneapolis to Harlingen. Mirman said the Valley cannot afford to have Delta cannibalize Sun Country's passengers.“The challenge for the Rio Grande Valley is to absorb such an expansion of capacity. We will have twice as many seats as we had last year from the Upper Midwest. So the challenge is to make sure that Sun Country can fill up their planes to Minneapolis and Minnesota and then for us to take full advantage of what Delta brings to the table,” Mirman said.American Airlines also flies to the Upper Midwest out of Harlingen, Mirman said, with one flight a week to and from Chicago. American also has a lot of Upper Midwest connecting cities to Chicago, he pointed out.“At the end of the day, for our region, the Minneapolis market is already mature, Sun Country and even Delta had flown here for 30 years. The challenge or the opportunity truly is to expand on those connecting markets in the Dakotas, in Montana, in Illinois, in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Nebraska,” Mirman said.“If we can start doing that this year, if we can keep both carriers (Delta and Sun Country) and even American flying in here for years to come, then it is going to have an enormous effect in the local economy.”Editor's Note: To read the full story go to www.riograndeguardian.com.To read the new stories and watch the news videos of the Rio Grande Guardian International News Service go to www.riograndeguardian.com.
major and anomalous storm system is forecast to produce a multitude of weather hazards through early this weekend, as heavy snowfall, strong winds, and dangerously cold temperatures span from the northern Great Basin through the Plains, Upper Midwest, Great Lakes, and the northern/central Appalachians. At the forefront of the impressive weather pattern is a dangerous and record-breaking cold air mass in the wake of a strong arctic cold front diving southward across the southern Plains today and eastward into the Ohio/Tennessee Valleys by tonight. Behind the front, temperatures across the central High Plains have already plummeted 50 degrees F in just a few hours, with widespread subzero readings extending throughout much of the central/northern Plains and northern Rockies/Great Basin. These temperatures combined with sustained winds of 20 to 30 mph and higher wind gusts of up to 60 mph will continue to lead to wind chills as low as minus 40 degrees across a large swath of the Intermountain West and northern/central Plains, with more localized areas of minus 50 to minus 70 possible through the end of the week. Wind chills of this magnitude can cause frostbite in less than 5 minutes if precautions are not taken, with hypothermia and death also possible from prolonged exposure to the cold. Livestock interests will also be severely impacted and dangers could be exacerbated if power outages occur. Consequently, widespread Wind Chill Warnings, Watches and Advisories span across over 30 states from Washington to Florida. Daytime temperatures across the central Plains will struggle to get above 0 degrees, while areas further south in Texas and the Gulf Coast will experience temperatures in the single digits and teens Thursday evening. Furthermore, snow squalls, or a brief burst of moderate to heavy snow (lasting 1 to 2 hours), are likely to occur immediately behind the arctic front as it treks from the mid-Mississippi Valley to the East Coast. Developing snow squalls could lead to extremely hazardous travel conditions at times, as they will be accompanied by gusts to 40 mph and the potential for sudden whiteout conditions. Lastly, areas with standing water ahead of the approaching cold front, particularly throughout the Ohio/Tennessee Valleys, could experience a flash freeze this afternoon and evening. Roadways that were wet beforehand could freeze within a short period of time and lead to slick travel spots. For areas across the Upper Midwest, Great Lakes, and Interior Northeast, a rapidly deepening low-pressure center that forms along the frontal boundary this evening and swings into the Great Lakes on Friday will have the potential to create potentially crippling conditions. Widespread light-to-moderate snowfall is expected for this region, along with localized totals over a foot to the south and east of the Great Lakes where lake effect snow is forecast to linger into Saturday. The snowfall totals may not seem all that impressive with this storm, but combined with very strong winds over an extended period of time will create blizzard conditions that can bring travel to a halt and strain infrastructure. These widespread wind gusts over 40 mph and potentially up over 60 mph are due to a very tight pressure gradient developing between the eventual low over the Great Lakes and the strong high pressure system over the northern Plains. The abrupt deepening of this low pressure system will also aid in the increasingly large and powerful wind field. Heavy snowfall rates of 1-2"/hour, along with wind gusts of over 50 mph will result in near-zero visibility and considerable blowing and drifting of snow. This will lead to dangerous, to at times impossible, land and air travel leading up to the holiday weekend. The combination of heavy snow and strong wind gusts could lead to significant infrastructure impacts, including scattered tree damage and power outages.

Today we're looking at what's happening in the food supply chain between the farm and the grocery store. Ryan Dietz is the president and co-owner of Heartland Produce. They distribute produce to grocers and processors in the Upper Midwest – about half of their business is in Wisconsin. The food comes from all over the world right to their facility in Kenosha. He says the trucking strains have eased since last year, but other input costs, weather, and other factors worldwide are keeping food prices up. The other part of Heartland Produce's business is retail support, such as helping grocers with advertising or in-store demos. Dietz shares trends he's seeing among grocery stores AND federal food share programs. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
