Corn, soy harvest to get back on track, forecaster says

10/24/2011 @ 8:48am

After minimal slowdowns this weekend due to rains in some sections of the country, the U.S. corn and soybean harvest is expected to get back on track in the 6- to 10-day outlook, forecasters say.

The weekend saw limited harvest delays as light showers occurred across northern Minnesota, Wisconsin, northern Illinois, and western Michigan

"This week will be a period of transition across the central U.S.," MDA EarthSat Weather reported Monday. "Temperatures will start out the week well above normal, but will end well below normal.

"Some snow is even expected across eastern CO and far southwestern NE. Light rains showers are expected across WI, MI, northern IN, and northern OH early this week. Showers will become heavier and more widespread across the southern and eastern Midwest on Wednesday and Thursday, slowing the corn and soybean harvest," wrote Kyle Tapley, MDA EarthSat Weather meteorologist.

"Temperatures will warm during the 6-10 day period and fairly dry weather is expected in most
areas, which should favor harvesting."
