Heat wave to persist

07/15/2011 - 07/26/2011

At a time when the corn and soybean markets are worried about conditions drying out in the Midwest (with good reason, I might add), it is ironic that there is a small but key part of the growing region that is very wet right now.

 

More big rains the past 24 hours in northwestern Iowa and southwestern Minnesota means that much of that area has seen three to six inches of rain (or more) since late last Saturday (I can confirm over six inches in that period for both Spencer and Worthington).

 

During that same time though we have seen very little rain in southern Iowa, the central third of Illinois, and the central third of Indiana, and that is clearly bad news heading into a major heat wave for the Midwest.
