Chilly Temps Expected to Persist over 6- to 10-day Outlook

April 23, 2014 10:14 AM

The National Weather Service 6- to 10-day outlook calls for more cold temps April 29 through May 3, which could keep corn planting progress behind the average pace. The eastern two-thirds of the U.S. have increased odds of below normal temps during this timeframe.


The precip outloook is more favorable in terms of planting progress. The Northern, Central and Southern Plains all have increased chances of below-normal precip, while eastern North Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Michigan and most of Illinois are expected to have normal precip. Precip could slow planting areas in the far eastern Corn Belt, however.
