More rain possible through parts of Midwest

More rain is expected across parts of the Midwest into next week, including many areas where soil moisture profiles are already full.

“There may be some recurrent, or at least exasperation, of ongoing standing water and flooding that’s been receding of late in parts of the Mississippi Valley, West Central, and Southern and Southwestern Corn Belt that’s going to be another re-aggravated issue.”

Brownfield Meteorologist Greg Soulje says drier conditions are expected mid-to-late next week, but temperatures will be below normal.  “Over the next couple of two or three weeks will be a significant shift, particularly for Missouri east towards the lower lakes region of the Ohio Valley of a much cooler to colder weather pattern relative to late May and early June.”

He says a lack of heat and growing degree days should also slow down crop emergence over the next few weeks.
