Wet weather across much of the Midwest Corn Belt; seasonally mild on the Plains – Voice Of Muscatine



Wet weather across much of the Midwest Corn Belt; seasonally mild on the Plains

Across the Corn Belt, rain is halting late-season fieldwork, mainly east of the Mississippi River.  In Michigan, 79% of the corn and 96% of the soybeans had been harvested by November 26.  On that date, more than one-tenth of the corn was also still standing in Wisconsin (85% harvested) and Ohio (86%).  Farther west, some wet snow is falling early today in southern Iowa and environs.  

On the Plains, dry weather prevails.  Friday’s high temperatures will remain below 40°F throughout the northern and central Plains, although such readings are not unusual for this time of year.
