Weather Map

Wet conditions into July will impact additional planting but also harvesting crops. This includes wheat and hay.

There is not much change from last week's thinking. Overall, we expect above normal rainfall for the rest of June and likely into parts of July.

Rainfall for the next two weeks will average 2-5 inches which are 100-250% of normal. Isolated totals will exceed 6 inches.

Temperatures will continue to average about normal but that will be a mix of below normal maximum temperatures and above normal minimum temperatures. This will be the result of high moisture levels and humidity.  The outlook for July is near or slightly above normal temperatures and above normal rainfall and humidity.
