Pleasant mid-November weather continues

Expansive high pressure will help provide sunny skies and seasonal temperatures across central and east-central Illinois for the next few days.

Across the rest of the Corn Belt, dry weather—accompanied by a gradual warming trend—favors late-season fieldwork. By November 11, Midwestern States with greatest percentage of soybeans left to harvest were Missouri (11% in the field) and Ohio (7%).On the Plains, dry weather remains a significant concern with respect to the hard red winter wheat crop.

In the South, cool, dry weather is promoting a continuation of, or return to, fieldwork, including winter wheat planting and cotton and soybean harvesting. On November 11 in North Carolina, wheat was 54% planted, while harvesting was 61% complete for cotton and 36% complete for soybeans.
