Favorable summer weather across the Corn Belt

Across the Corn Belt, cool weather accompanies widespread sunshine and largely dry weather. Weather conditions remain mostly favorable for reproductive to filling summer crops, although pockets of unfavorable dryness persist across portions of the southwestern and western Corn Belt.

On the Plains, a high-pressure system centered over eastern areas is resulting in cool, dry weather. Below-normal temperatures also prevail across the western and southern Plains, accompanied by scattered showers.

In the South, flood-recovery efforts continue in parts of New Orleans, Louisiana, which was struck by locally torrential weekend rainfall. Currently, warm, humid weather prevails in Florida, while a band of showers stretches from eastern Texas into the far southern Mid-Atlantic region.

In the West, widely scattered showers dot the Great Basin, Intermountain West, and central and southern Rockies. Meanwhile, hot weather is returning to the Desert Southwest and persists across the Pacific Northwest. In addition, poor air quality (due to smoke from wildfires) continues to plague the Northwest.
