The 30-day weather outlook continues to show drier than average conditions and above average temperatures across the Northern Plains. USDA Midwest Climate Hub Director Dennis Todey says drought conditions will remain. “There has been some precipitation to improve conditions in the Dakotas and Minnesota. Unfortunately, widespread improvement will have to wait until the fall.” Todey says the Eastern Corn Belt has a slightly better chance at being wetter than average in August. “Conditions are pretty good from a soil moisture standpoint. Overall, temperatures don’t look too hot. We expect those good growing conditions to remain.”
