Rain Seen in Southern Parts of Corn Belt, Plains

Showers are being reported in southern portions of the Corn Belt and Plains, and total rainfall between the Great Lakes region and Texas might be between 1" and 2" by the end of the week, USDA says.

Meanwhile, last week’s Colorado flooding conditions have given way to drier weather. Monsoon circulation will continue to weaken over the region.

Near- to above-normal temperatures are expected throughout the country over the next six to 10 days, with near- to above-normal precipitation for most areas.

Winter wheat planting is underway in the northern High Plains, which are experiencing late-season heat. In the South, some rain is occurring in conjunction with the arrival of Tropical Storm Ingrid along the Mexican Gulf Coast.
