The Weather Front On-Line

Heat, humidity to expand across the Corn Belt

Across the Corn Belt, showers and thunderstorms across are providing beneficial moisture for immature summer crops across the far upper Midwest, including North Dakota and parts of Minnesota. Across much of the remainder of the Midwest, however, persistent dryness and increasingly hot conditions are maintaining significant stress on pastures and immature corn and soybeans.


Heat wave continues on the Plains

Across the Corn Belt, mostly dry conditions are maintaining stress on immature corn and soybeans. In addition, heat is returning to the western Corn Belt, where Friday’s high temperatures will exceed 90°. In contrast, Friday’s highs will remain below 80° in Michigan and Ohio.


A change in weather ahead

A large area of high pressure aloft will continue to prevail over the central United States through the start of the Holiday Weekend. This will result more hot and humid weather over central Illinois, with highs in the lower 90s through Sunday. Then, a cold front is forecast to move through late Sunday, bringing a return to more seasonal temperatures for Labor Day.


Heat wave to expand across the Heartland

Across the Corn Belt, thunderstorms are affecting the Great Lakes region, including Wisconsin and Michigan. Elsewhere, hot, dry weather is increasing stress on corn and soybeans. Monday’s highs will generally range from 85 to 90° in the eastern Corn Belt, but will top 95° in some locations from the Mississippi Valley westward.

Heat building across the Corn Belt

Across the Corn Belt, heat continues to arrive from the north and west. Tuesday’s high temperatures will exceed 90° in the western-most Corn Belt, fostering the development of late-planted corn and soybeans.


Warmth returning to the Corn Belt

Across the Corn Belt, isolated showers are confined to the upper Mississippi Valley. Midwestern soil moisture continues to gradually diminish, with the most acute shortages noted across Iowa (excluding the northeast), northern Missouri, and neighboring areas.


Soil moisture lacking in the western Corn Belt

Across the Corn Belt, scattered showers and thunderstorms precede and accompany a cold front’s passage. Cool weather is returning to the upper Midwest, but warmth lingers in the Ohio Valley. Portions of the region, especially across the western Corn Belt, still have limited soil moisture for corn and soybean development.


A wide-range of weather across the Heartland

Across the Corn Belt, cool weather continues to benefit reproductive to filling summer crops. Showers in the western Corn Belt are easing concerns over short-term dryness.
