Brownfield Ag Weather Today

An early-season heat wave will grip much of the South, East, and lower Midwest for the remainder of the week.  With soil moisture adequate in many areas and with Midwestern summer crops having not yet reached the reproductive stage of development, Corn Belt impacts from the heat should be minimal.  In parts of the South, however, high temperatures frequently approaching or reaching 100°F could adversely affect reproductive corn.  In contrast, stormy weather will cover the northern and central Plains and upper Midwest, with 5-day rainfall totals expected to reach 1 to 4 inches or more.  Meanwhile, the Atlantic tropical basin will become more active, with a low-pressure system starting to form over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico.  With tropical cyclone formation likely over the next few days, moisture should continue to coalesce over Central America and southern and eastern Mexico.  Heavy rain may also fall during the mid- to late-week period across portions of southern and coastal Texas, with totals of 5 to 10 inches or more possible.  In contrast, little or no rain will fall during the next 5-days west of the Rockies, as well as an area stretching from the mid-South into the middle and northern Atlantic States.
