2012 harvest forecast

Weather-wise this is a crucial time for the grapes (but then when isn't weather an issue for farmers)?  You want temps warm enough to ripen the fruit (this usually isn't an issue in CA), you don't want heat spikes that may damage the fruit, and you don't want rain that can cause rot.

Things are looking just fine for the rest of September.
