Across the Corn Belt, overnight thunderstorms produced localized wind damage in Michigan and Ohio. Meanwhile, cooler air is overspreading the northern Corn Belt, while oppressively hot, humid weather lingers across the remainder of the Midwest. Friday’s high temperatures will again top 100°F in parts of the southern Corn Belt. As the late-season Midwestern heat wave ends from north to south, producers are monitoring impacts on filling summer crops.
On the Plains, cooler air covers the northwestern half of the region.
