NWS 6- to 10-day Outlook: Wet in the Eastern Corn Belt

May 31, 2013 09:44 AM

The National Weather Service's outlook for June 6-10 is a bit more favorable for growers in the in the western Corn Belt. While the forecast for below-normal temps for the western half of Minnesota, Iowa and Missouri as well as the eastern half of the Dakotas and Nebraska are not ideal for drying out saturated soils, normal precip is expected for most of these states. The eastern Corn Belt, on the other hand, is expected to see normal temps but above-normal precip. This is especially concerning for Illinois, as the state received heavy rains this week.
