Out west brutal heat with no relief on the horizon

California and Arizona, and down through to Sonora Mexico, are experiencing brutal heat, with no relief in sight for at least the next 10 days.wear

Florida is looking to get slight rains next week, with Homestead, Belle Glade and Plant City getting an honest dusting of rain.

All avocado-producing regions are experiencing ideal growing weather; abundant supplies are expected. Mexico's growing regions are experiencing perfect conditions, and Chilean produce as a whole is benefitting from great weather up and down the country.

Late next week a half an inch of rain should hit the Cardenas, Mexico, region.
