Drier weekend ahead for most in the corn belt

This weekend will be considerably drier for most in the corn belt compared to what we have seen in the last two weeks. But, as we discussed in Thursday’s Ag Forecast video, mid-week next week will feature another low-pressure system that will impact the southern half of the corn belt. 

Rainfall totals through the end of next week show how some of the areas that were hit hard over the last two weeks will be getting more rain—potentially an inch or more—as this system moves across the central US toward the southeast beginning Wednesday.
