NWS Forecast Stays Cool and Wet

July 30, 2013 09:41 AM

The National Weather Service (NWS) forecast for Aug. 5-9 continues to call for below-normal temps across the Corn Belt. Above-normal precip is also forecast for the bulk of the Corn Belt during this period, though normal rainfall is likely over eastern North Dakota, most of Minnesota and the Great Lakes region -- areas that are expected to be the coldest.

Traders will view the cool, wet outlook as non-threatening for crops, but due to the delayed development of the corn and soybean crops, warmer temps and ample precip are really what's needed.
