The National Weather Service (NWS) 6- to 10-day forecast for April 18-22 calls for below-normal temps to continue across the entire Corn Belt and Plains. Above-normal precip is forecast during the period for the entire eastern Corn Belt, along with the northern two-thirds of Minnesota. Other areas of the Corn Belt are expected to see normal precip during this period.
The NWS 8- to 14-day forecast also calls for below-normal precip for the Corn Belt and Plains April 20-26, though the intensity is reduced some. But this forecast adds more precip, with all but the southern and southwestern Corn Belt expected to see above-normal precip.
