Senior Atmospheric Scientist

Overnight weather forecast models are in disagreement over the location of the heaviest rain this weekend. The long-range European model (ECMWF) and US model (GFS) agree that the heaviest rain will extend from Oklahoma through central Missouri and into central Illinois. The latest short-range US model (NAM) takes the heaviest rainfall farther north and west.

Near perfect weather conditions at the Illinois Marathon this past weekend made for a great day for the 2017 Agrible marathon relay teams Cock-A-Data-DO and Cock-A-Data-Don't. The past two years, race day has been rainy and wet, so the sunny weather and 61 degree high temperature on Saturday was a welcomed change by all runners.

The weather this Thursday and Friday will be a reminder that despite a very warm February and warm end to March, history shows us that frost through mid-April should be expected. Late this week, a large low pressure system will push through the Great Lakes, allowing for strong northerly winds to bring sub-freezing temperatures into the corn belt.
