The National Weather Service outlook for June 13-17 is a bit more favorable for fieldwork in Iowa and Minnesota, but North Dakota and the eastern Corn Belt could see additional delays. Normal temps are expected for the bulk of the region, with the southwest corner of South Dakota and Nebraska forecast to see above-normal temps. This would help dry out saturated soils.
The precip outlook is varied. Wet weather in North Dakota and the upper half of Nebraska could lead to additional delays in row crop and spring wheat seeding. Illinois, Ohio and southern regions of Wisconsin and Michigan are also expected to receive above-normal precip. The rest of the Corn Belt is expected to see normal precip.
