After the Midwestern crops get completed soaking up this week’s recent rains, cold weather is set to prevail earlier than a hot weekend.
Over the subsequent two days, the highest amounts of rain are anticipated to be recorded in the southern half of the Corn Belt.
Dale Mohler, the AccuWeather meteorologist, says the southern half of the Corn Belt can be wet for the rest of the week.
“Especially since we had a robust thunderstorm advanced over the last 10 hours move throughout Iowa and Illinois, with 1 – 2 inches of rain in a lot of areas,” Mohler says. One other good round of rainfall is expected later tonight and into Wednesday from Nebraska by way of Missouri, Kansas, and Illinois.
Everybody dries out by Thursday, Mohler says.
Things turn cooler, starting Thursday.
To start next week, the Corn Belt may see temperatures in the low 90s in the south and mid-80s throughout the north.
With each rain event, some farmers complain they didn’t get a drop. This week, it’s farmers in Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin, and northern Ohio who didn’t get the rain, Mohler says.
Combining the rain sums already received with what is foretold to fall for the remaining month, the northwest area of the Corn Belt could end up with 150% of average rainfall in August, based on AccuWeather.
Likewise, the heart of the Corn Belt is anticipated to have 80% to 110% of normal August rainfall. Also, the Michigan space is expected to whole 75% to 80% of normal rainfall.
Because the southern Corn Belt farmers get rolling on the harvest, it could be a little wetter than they would like, Mohler says.
