Early Morning Weather Headlines

September 22nd, 2014

Corn BeltHigh pressure is centered over eastern NE this morning and will be in control of the region through this week and weekend. The high is a very slow mover, and will promote sunny, dry weather with moderate temps through the period. There will be some moisture that tries to fire off from time to time up the backside of the high in the plains, and models hint that perhaps a bit of that may meander into extreme western parts of the corn belt off an on later this week…but we are talking coverage so isolated that it really does not bear mentioning, and amounts of no more than a few hundredths to a tenth. So…dry is the word for the week. This should promote excellent dry down. {see more}…

Plains – A little bit of shower and thunderstorm activity will try to develop in southerly flow up the backside of the strong high that sits over the eastern half of the country. The bulk of this action happens between today and Wednesday from I-90 to I-40. Rain amounts of .25”-1” possible, coverage at 60%. Since thunderstorms are the main driver…the coverage will be the typical spotty coverage. The rest of the region and the rest of the week will be dry. .Temperatures will be normal to above normal…

Central-Northern Brazil Corn/Soy Belt (Matto Grosso, Goias, Minas Gerais, Bahia) – Scattered light showers today and tomorrow will produce .1”-4” rains, coverage only about 40%. Mostly dry then the rest of this week through the weekend. We might see a few showers late in the weekend and early next week sneaking into Minas Gerais, but they will not go much farther than that. Rain totals can be up to half an inch from late the 28th through the 30th. From the 1st through the 8th, we see potential for half to 1.5” rains and 70% coverage over this entire region. That may be the period that really gets this region underway on the 2014-15 growing season, with decent rains and decent coverage. Temps look to be nearly normal…
