Cool, favorably dry weather across the Midwest...

Across the Corn Belt, cool, favorably dry weather prevails, following an extended period of abundant to locally excessive rainfall. Meanwhile, localized lowland flooding lingers in the western and central Corn Belt.

On the Plains, winter wheat harvesting is advancing across the central Plains, while warm weather is promoting rapid crop development on the northern High Plains.

In the South, a cold front is sparking scattered showers, mainly in Arkansas. Showers also continue along and near the Gulf Coast, well north and east of the center of “Alex”. The turn toward cooler, wetter weather across the South is benefiting previously stressed pastures and summer crops.

In the West, more cool weather is returning to the Pacific Northwest. Elsewhere, warm, dry weather favors fieldwork and crop growth.
