Some Weather Relief This Week, but Heat and Dryness Will Return
Beneficial rains fell on some areas of the Corn Belt, but weekend precipitation was light from eastern Nebraska to Minnesota and that region may stay drier biased during the next ten days, despite a few more opportunities for scattered showers and thunderstorms, according to World Weather Inc. The forecast says weather will improve during the coming week with rain likely from the central Plains through the Ohio River Basin and northern Delta as waves of rain move across the region. The second week of the two-week outlook is drier and warmer in the central U.S. once again as a high-pressure ridge returns to the region. World Weather says long term trend changes still suggest a limited amount of crop stress in the Corn Belt during the first half of August, but a close watch will be warranted for mid- to late month.
