Dry Two Weeks for Corn Belt

Posted: 30 May 2023 05:30 AM

The featured map presents the number of consecutive days without measurable precipitation (red numbers) or number of consecutive days with precipitation (negative blue numbers). A majority of the corn belt is shown in the 10 to 15 day range ending on Monday. While chances of rain are in the forecast for Iowa this week, the extent to which those chances make it east to other portions of the corn belt remains in doubt.
