We don't report the weather, we put the weather into perspective and tell you how it will impact your farm or business a year from now! Our 12-time award winning year-ahead forecasting technology uses math/statistics and 24 climate cycles, a completely different methodology than traditional meteorology which is physics/modeling based. It's a battle of beliefs - our way vs their way - and we don't change our forecasts once issued. With weathertrends360 you'll be proactive instead of reactive with Mother Nature's ever-changing conditions. We hope you enjoy Better Weather with Captain Kirk.

Your luck is about to run out as a tropical moisture feed appears to set up with a conveyor belt of moisture out of Cancun Mexico headed into the South Central U.S. and very likely up into the Corn Belt over the next couple weeks. THIS WEEK overall will trend the wettest in 6 years with 50% above average rainfall for the Corn Belt and warmest in 15 years, 7.3F above average. CLICK FOR LARGER MAP VIEW
The last week of October is the week to watch for tropical moisture streaming out of the Gulf of Mexico into the Central U.S. This could be the wettest week of the year for the Corn Belt as a whole with the late October period trending the wettest in decades, 297% above average rainfall for the Corn Belt as a whole. Temperatures remain above average for the week overall trending the warmest in 11 years and 3.7F above average. CLICK FOR LARGER MAP VIEW
