Dry Weather Reprieve
Many dry areas of the Midwest had decent amounts of rain in the past two days. Areas below in blue and gray did not get much rain. There are still acreage in southeast Iowa, Northwest Missouri and parts of Illinois, that did not get enough rain. Those areas are in the heart of the corn belt. This rain will not carry through the growing season except on some early planted corn. Green areas below will be needing more rain in two weeks. This was certainly a welcome rain. There is potential for more rain in the next few days.
