An active weather pattern resumes

Across the Corn Belt, mild, showery weather lingers across the middle Mississippi Valley, maintaining a slow fieldwork pace. Fieldwork also remains on hold in many other parts of the Midwest due to weekend rains. In addition, much colder air is arriving across the northern tier of the Corn Belt.

On the Plains, Monday early-morning showers and thunderstorms are active across eastern Oklahoma and neighboring areas, providing relief to a stubborn drought area. Meanwhile, chilly weather covers the northern Plains; Monday morning’s low temperatures dipped below 20° in parts of western North Dakota and environs. 

In the South, showers and a few thunderstorms are arriving across northern and western areas. Early Monday, some of the heaviest rain is falling in Arkansas and southern Texas. Meanwhile, warm, dry weather favors fieldwork and crop development in the Southeast, although some areas—including the southern Appalachians and Florida’s peninsula—need a soaking rain to provide drought relief.

In the West, cool, showery weather continues to limit fieldwork and slow crop development in northern California and the Northwest. In contrast, warm, dry weather prevails in the Southwest.
