WE received 3 inches of rain. According to NOAA that was not widespread, but over an inch was common across Central ILLInois. With corn maturing, the rain will speed up the process. Also, soybeans with pods should start filling and soybeans without pods should start getting them. Over all this rain had excellent timing for Illinois crop production. THe central part of the state was not really dry, but the rain last night could take some fields from very good to excellent when it comes to yields.
