LONGVIEW, Wash. —

The dry fall weather is delaying the cranberry harvest on the Long Beach Peninsula in southwest Washington.

The Longview Daily News reports ( http://is.gd/1g0pnY) that industry experts say the drought will push the harvest out into November. It's also expected to drive up labor costs and put the crop at risk of frost damage.

Cranberries are a $2 million industry on the peninsula. About 30 growers produce the bitter fruit for Ocean Spray to make juice and snacks such as Craisins.
