Across the Corn Belt, a warming trend has commenced. In fact, Thursday’s high temperatures should range from 60 to 70°F in parts of the western and southern Corn Belt, from South Dakota to Missouri. As warmer air arrives in the Great Lakes States, producers are attempting to harvest any remaining corn. Nearly 2 weeks ago, on November 26, only 4% of the national corn acreage had not been cut.
On the Plains, dry weather accompanies record-setting warmth.
