Cool, no Frost Ahead, Freese-Notis Says

U.S. Midwest farmers awaiting the start of harvest can expect cool conditions ahead. But no frost is seen in the near future, according to Freese-Notis Weather Inc.

On Wednesday, a few scattered showers are expected in the southwest portion of the Corn Belt. Otherwise, the next rain chance will be Friday and Saturday across the region ahead of a cool front.


No frost is expected this week. There will, however, be some lows in the mid- to upper-30s range for the west and central Corn Belt tomorrow morning, and central and east Wednesday morning. 


Mother Nature to Roll Out Harvest Welcome Mat

With the Midwestern farmers getting set to start the 2014 corn and soybean harvest season any day now, this week's weather is expected to trend warmer and drier in the Midwest.

The coolest morning for this week will be Tuesday morning, with a few upper 30s far northwest. But there is no frost threat this week, as a gradual warming trend to near-normal temps will take place after a minor cooling trend Monday.
