Hot, humid weather continues across much of the Midwest, Plains...

On the Plains, high temperatures will again exceed 100 degrees as far north as Kansas, although key crop areas on the southern High Plains continue to avoid the extreme heat.

Across the Corn Belt, abundant to excessive soil moisture for corn and soybeans are found. In contrast, unfavorably hot, dry conditions are creeping into parts of the southern Corn Belt, where high temperatures will again exceed 95 degrees.

In the South, a low-pressure system over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico is contributing to showery weather across southern Florida. Across the remainder of the South, very hot, mostly dry weather continues to stress pastures, animals, and immature summer crops.

In the West, mostly dry weather and near- to below-normal temperatures favor fieldwork, including Northwestern small grain harvesting.
